BloodflowerWell well well, I've safely returned from Austria and have already put the first week of my studies behind me. Yup, I actually survived. Getting used to my new rhythm was actually not as scary as I thought. Met some really sweet people as well. Yay for being social.
Please don't expect new art any time soon, I'm just way too tired during the week to touch anything; I tend to spend my evenings watching TV and recently Doctor Who again, or reading. And then when the weekend comes...the motivation simply won't. Yeah, sorry, I'm still knee-deep in my first and worst art block ever. The little ray of light that July brought sadly didn't stick with me.
Still got quite an amount of messages to go through in my inbox as well, I'll do my best not to take TOO long.
So what's new with you guys?
Busy Busy BusyYup, really busy for once. Well, not yet. But soon.
On July 30th I'll be leaving for Austria to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and visit some friends back home. Really looking forward to that besides the 25h bus/train trip. On my birthday. Yaaay...
I'll be back on August 7th and then on August 11th I'll already be starting my education. That means a five day week with hours from 9am till 17pm each day for about ten months. Add an hour of commute to that in the morning and the evening and you can guess I won't be getting much more active than I am right now during that time.
Particularly during my time in Austria I can't promise to be very active at all, I'll have to see if I can leech a bit off my sister's wi-fi here and there but I'll have a pretty packed schedule in general so we'll see how that works out.
Just letting you guys know.
Hope you're all doing great!
Wet LeatherWell I'm depressed. Tired and freakishly sad.
That week and a half passed way too quickly and I already missed VanoVaemone the moment she stepped on the train. Argh. *digs a deep hole and jumps in*
We've had a great time. Yep, I'd been worried I wouldn't be a good host but in the end we really hit it off. Which made it all the harder to part this morning.
I've drawn some as you could see. That's great. And I feel like drawing more. That's even better.
But right now I'll stick with being tired and sad.
I'll sit down and reply to all your comments and other feedback as soon as I can pull myself a little bit together.
I'm sorry for my inactivity.
Just a ZombieReally, I swear, I'm not dead.
I've got messages PILING up like crazy in my inbox and I just can't get myself to clean that mess up. A message or two per day, that's all I manage.
The good thing is: while I'm partly still tired from my meds, in general it's good reasons that make me so absent. The only thing that kinda sucks is the fact that my artistic motivation is at an all time low. I just can't WANT to draw. It'll come back. Eventually.
Right now there's two things that have been messing with my rhythm.
1) I've got a definite confirmation that I've been accepted for my education which basically made me cry of joy and relief. This affects my sleep 'cause anticipation and stuff. But not even remotely as much as...
2) In two days I'll be picking up the most amazing girl on this whole planet at the train station here and I'm gonna be able to keep her here for a whole week and a half. (this girl here of course: VanoVaemone <3 )I swear this literally messes up my sleep like shit
First Stream (Castlevania 64) overThanks to eveybody who was there, I had a great time!
I've recently, with the help of my lovely assistant VanoVaemone, configured my livestream channel for gaming streams so you can expect some of those very soon!
I will be streaming two games:
No idea what I'll start with, it'll depend on my mood. :>
Time will most likely be late at night, between 22:00 and 00:00 GMT+2.
If this would be SUPER inconvenient for you, let me know and I'll see if I can add differently timed sessions too.
Either way I'll keep you guys up to date!
300 Points Giveaway! - WinnersCongrats to sbslink and Viokcha who both scored a perfect 10/10!
150 each are on the way! :>
(For those interested, I've highlighted the correct answers underneath. )
So I've got some spare points rotting away on my account and I figured I'd give you a chance to win them so they'll go to better use.
There will be no, 'comment on this journal, fave this journal, share this journal' or any of that bs, you just have to reply to the following 10 questions which should be an easy task if you're a loyal watcher or even simply know where to look.
Do NOT reply in the comments (I won't let that count!), just send me a note with the answers, the highest score gets 300 !
I'll give you until tomorrow night for this; if there's gonna be several equally high scores the points will simply be divided.
Off you go!
1. I was born in...
2. I live in...
3. I am
Austrian Pride, B*tches!Yes, guys, YES! We haven't won since 1966 and holy f*ck, I can't believe we won with such an awesome act! Freedom, acceptance and equality for the win!
And Conchita for president!
Got a Date to Prom Yet?Well I sure do. I'll be taking my lovely VanoVaemone out on May 10th.
No idea what I'm talking about?
Have a look at this journal by Rising-Artists and you'll understand:
It's a neat event that allows you to get a feature for both you and a friend, so why not join and spread the love?
And while you're at it, I'd love it if you could give my beautiful date some love as well! ovo
Have a look at her gallery that is filled with wonderful poetry, fanfics, stamps, original stories and much more!
She even offers ultra cheap poetry commissions, so seriously, go check her out, I promise it'll be worth your while!
Even if you don't speak French, why not just leave a nice comment? You'll have the chance to get to know a really incredible person that way! :3
Vano's Profile (& Commissions)
Well, maybe I'll see you at prom.
Just so you know...I'm really sorry for being so inactive and f*cking slow lately. I'm working on some pieces for others but some sh*t has been stealing pretty much all my energy so I spend half the day trying not to fall asleep. As you can imagine, not very helpful when you gotta draw.
But don't worry guys, I'm doing fine otherwise, I just need my body to learn to play along. I've even got my dream education pretty much within reach now so things are going pretty darn well for me. I actually feel that for once things are going just right in my life. I'm finally actively fighting some health issues that have been with me for almost a decade now, I'll soon be going back to school, I've got a wonderful hubby and to top it off there's this amazing girl that has been making me very happy lately as well. (you know who you are )
So...what's up with you guys?

Awaken the soul by dangerous-glow
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
Keep in Touch!
