Project 2013 - Get a Life!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 7, 2013, 4:30 AM
Hello my little deerlings!  Some big news!

The first full week of year 2013 has started and this time has made think and reflect on my life.

The year 2013, will be probably one of the most important of my life so far. I will graduate officially soon which means I am no longer student but a grown up woman who needs to support herself. This means I need to find a job, get my own apartment... Yaya! AGAIN I have to move... Thankfully not too soon but... Most likely next Autumn.  Yes very important year indeed. Time to become a responsible and productive member of society. Phhhthphlol.

This means I really need to start looking for myself. I have already updated my portfolio, made a new email address for work related business etc.... I might even start my own trade name! I have also FINALLY started to upload art to my personal DA account. That is an account where I only post my original art. I won't give the account name yet so please be patient. I will reveal it later.

I also need to start a new hobby. Whole year 2012 felt like I sat at home, working in front of a computer. Seriously! Lately, I've been feeling that ALL I think about is art! Art! Art! ART! I need something else in my mind. Thankfully, my good friend promised to purchase me a introduction class for a special yoga class. I'll try it and hopefully it will feel like something I like to continue. :)

And last...  man... When I said this year would be important and life changing... Oh man... On Christmas... My brother... Gave us some wonderful news. He and his wife.... They are having a baby this summer...

Guys and gals... I am gonna be an aunt! :iconhappytearplz:

Congratulations! Both on graduating this year and on becoming an aunt as well. :) I've actually got a little nephew on the way for 2013 as well, which is very exciting. :D It'll be closer to May or so, though.

Sounds like 2013 will be a good year all around, then! Nice! :D

Thanks! :D His wife actually already had a son before they met, so I've got a nephew already (and I love him dearly!), but I'm also excited to have another one and to be a part of his life from the start. :)

Definitely a great thing to be a part of! Try to stay close and involved with your nephew or niece. :)

Congratulations on all counts!

Good luck with the new arrival, though - even when you're not the primary caretaker, small children can still be extremely demanding of your time and energy (speaking from 4 years personal experience).

Your graduating soon, thats great but as adult as you are, you'll always be a kid at heart :)

Hope to see your other account soon. Must be great to see.

Aww congratulations. Your gonna be an aunt. I'm happy for you. And hey, life can be very ironic. You say your not planning on any kids, but the next thing you know your gonna end up falling in love, its gonna happen to you when you least expect it, mark my words ^^

Ah, how time flies...It really is difficult to believe that so much can happen in a year! I definitely know how you feel about life (or getting one, as the case may be). Sometimes I feel that the only productive thing I ever do is schoolwork, since even my more recent 'artworks' leave a lot to be desired...
I always tell myself that I should try contributing more to society (like getting a job) or just contributing more to sites that showcase creativity, but it never happens. Although I've been getting out and doing fun things with friends (way more than I ever have in the past), I can't help but feel that I'm neglecting some aspects of myself (ie. inner artist, inner gamer, etc.) in an attempt to 'spare others' from what--in my opinion--aren't my greatest efforts. You amazing artists here on dA really help me keep doing what I love, and I can't thank you enough for being such a source of inspiration! I can't wait for your personal account reveal, either. Seeing your original work (before your decision to move it) was always a treat. (And I think I speak for some when I say that, as much as people love amazing fanart, good-quality originality can't be beat.)

On another note: The fact that you'll be an aunt is amazing! That must have been the greatest Christmas present of all~! I hope the New Year brings you closer to your goals, as well as a happy, prosperous life!

[[And I'm assuming it'll be quite difficult to get a life later on, what with the 'big news' finally out about Pokemon! >w< ]]

Son, you're a man now (Wait, but you're a girl :noes:).
Congratulations, you made it! :la::happybounce: ... And suddenly you became an adult, time sure flies.
I'm sure you'll do great, you're... I dunno, you. Now I'm really looking forward to your personal account and probably your own enterprise (Do they call it that way in art?); you'll be a successful businesswoman before you even know it :D.
You mean to tell me you don't have another hobby? :wow: (Well, no wonder why you're so good), You really should try another one, helps you branch out and strangely enough you improve on both of them as you work on the other. Have you ever tried learning to play an instrument? Music is really not that hard and I would teach you personally if you weren't on the other side of the world :XD:. Or maybe a sport? I suck at them but they're by far the most healthy of hobbies, not to mention fun.
Woah! Congratulations! Family is growing. Wait, but the way you portray children... I could have sworn... You weren't an aunt already? :icondragonshock:

Heheh! Thanks for the long comment.

HAHA! No! Drawing is pretty much only thing I do. That is why I can draw so much so fast. XD
I REALLY need another hobby. Something that forces me outside and makes me use my body. I think this yoga will be perfect.

And no! I'm still the youngest member of our family. But it is finally about to change! :D
