It’s Been A Good Day! ๐ŸŒž

Greetings everyone! Well, today has been a wonderful day so far! Let’s see…

I decided to open more commission slots because I am working through them so quickly, but I didn’t think they’d sell so easily. ๐Ÿ˜…

I’m literally telling people “you can pick how your character is dressed and that’s it.” Like, they literally get no say in anything else, no WIPs, changes, nothing, and I must be doing something right because everyone is loving it and snagging them up, and sending me super sweet DMs when they get them, and tipping me (which was a rare occurrence before and now is happening often, especially with these slots.)

I’m so grateful and humbled by this! I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner. It means a much happier me, and happier commissioners too…

Anyway, with five slots sold, I paid my awful ZOHO bill which was such a stress over my head at $150, paid some other debt, including chipping away at my Amazon holiday bill (and discovered that I had over $25 in rewards which I could apply to my balance if I wanted!) aaaand I may have ordered more keycaps.

And a Code Realize bag.

AND! I also found a far more economical source for my snails’ sphagnum moss, so I placed an order for that. Hmm, what else…

Oh…

OH!!

So as you may remember my biggest grief right now was the terror I felt over my mom’s health. She’s over 65, has heart issues and works at a freaking GAS STATION of all the things. With COVID going around, that was very scary for me to know. I worried constantly, and still do. But today my mom was able to schedule her appointment for the vaccine! She’ll have it in a matter of days! ๐Ÿ˜ญ Thank God.

Today I also finished reading the first omnibus volume of The Shinji Ikari Raising Project. It’s pretty dumb and fan-servicey, some of it is just WEIRD, but Shinji is adorable in it, and Gendo is an utter trip, so I’ll keep reading it for that alone.

In other news, I’ve realized I have a thing for yandere characters (when done RIGHT) so hooray for toxic tendencies I guess. ๐Ÿ”ช What’s funny is that I always found that concept super unappealing when described to me, but having experienced two yandere-ish characters in visual novels now (at least on the surface) I can’t help but finding them very appealing, as a fantasy, in a game or story.

That’s it for now… I guess? I can’t seem to stop drawing. Also I have cramps. Also I had too much coffee and now my eye is twitching. It’s been a while. Maybe I’m a little manic, heehee. Actually, I hope not. ๐Ÿ™ƒ Well, if in a month I have an utter CRASH and this blog becomes a torrent of depression, let the record show that I may have been a little manic in early January. But I really hope not.

Self-Righteousness Is The Modern Plague

This isn’t one of my own ramblings, but I wasn’t sure how else to categorize it, since that is basically what it is (or, a “waffle” as Dorian herself puts it.)

I wanted to share this video here, because I felt this YouTuber had a lot of common sense. I don’t agree 100% with every point she makes, but I do agree with most of what she says. Whether you do or not seems by and large a generational thing, I’ve found.

In general her channel is AMAZING, very interesting, but bear in mind she talks at great length about her drug use (and abuse) and eating disorders, so you may find triggering content, though she makes a point of warning people in the videos.

(I’m unsure if Dorian goes by she/her or they/them pronouns, so if you do know let me know so I can correct this.)
