It was about time to write a new journal, right? xD Boy, I sure don't overdo this journal business here.... I'll mostly just ramble about myself and stuff I did lately/plan to do soon, so if that's not something that interests you, feel free to skip this journal.
How are you guys feeling? I'm good, but also incredibly nervous because my wedding is going to be this Saturday....
....and this feels kinda weird.
Until now I was too busy with work and other stuff, I simply had no time to worry about it or fully comprehend it. Now I have the week off and I'm back at my parents' with Cocoball, working on a video that will be played during the wedding. My fiance is back at Kecskemét still, working, he'll come here on Thursday.
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't want this wedding. I do want it and I love my fiance with all my heart.
It's just a little scary to be so close to the Big Day, suddenly realising that one of my most important days in life ever is about to happen in just a few days. (Have you guys ever felt like this before? And if you did, how did you deal with it?)
It doesn't help that most of the preparation (cake, invitations, room arrangement, table setting, clothes, the rings etc.) boiled down to "F*** this s***, we should have stayed engaged like X and Y!"
xD The preparations attracted drama at a never before seen rate, so if anyone tells us that this pre-wedding period is all rainbows and unicorns and unmeasurable happiness, we will laugh in disbelief
or we might headbutt them into oblivion
. It's not a piece of cake but hey, we could have it worse I guess. Besides all that headache was for this upcoming day to be perfect (or as close to perfect as possible) so in the end it will be definitely worth it.
So now we just try to finish the video and wait for the Big Day to come and embrace us.
Who wants to bet that the largest pimple imaginable will appear on my face right before the ceremony?
Gosh, it's like it was yesterday that the two of us have met at my webmanga's Hungarian forum and started talking... except nearly 10 years passed since then. Where did all that time go?I'll try to summarize the other, non-wedding related stuff:
First of all, a massive thank you for all you guys wishing me happy birthday! ;w; I'm sorry if I did not respond to your wishes, I was kind of left behind on stuff. I was already halfway into January by the time I noticed that
gave me a new subscription and some lovely commissioned artworks so that's how busy I was.... xD So thank you guys so much!
Secondly, one of my dear online brothers,
is going to visit Hungary again and needs some financial help, so he's doing awesome commissions and adoptables, make sure to check his work out (and spread the words if you can't help otherwise)!
24 hours! Halp!Taking donations for the next 24 hours. I'm going to Europe in 2 days and I'll need the extra scratch while travelling. Donate as much as you like, anything, and receive art in return! My paypal is Outcast71382(at)hotmail(dot)com . Spread the word and tell your friends! If you do, comment below if you donate and tell me roughly what you'd like. Pets:
Krampus is super fluffy with her winter-coat
*squeels* She's 4 years old now but still as playful and cuddly as ever. I just have to be very cautious to not let her into my room now that Cocoball is in there too xD Work:
I currently work at a small Printing House as their graphics designer (not as creative as it sounds). It's kinda loud and not exactly a dream job, but my coworkers are super nice and that makes up for everything.Games:
I have to admit that among the things that kept me busy, Pokemon Y and Alpha Saphire
played a big role too, not just work and wedding preparations xD Man, those games are super addictive... I've managed to put my 3DS down for a while but that won't last for long as I am eagerly awaiting the western release of the latest Monster Hunter
game *squeel* for the console. I also can't wait for Arena Net to announce the release date of the first Guild Wars 2
expansion, Heart of Thorns.
Two words: Greatsword Necros. Loki will be soooo hot in HoT soon ~
Apart from these, I have also set eyes on the western release of Echo of Soul
, a korean F2P MMO that will enter Open Beta this spring. GW2 is nice and I love it, but ever since I stopped playing Fiesta Online and Digimon Masters Online, I felt like a casual anime-style MMO is missing from my life xD And EOS is the first one to pique my interest in a good while, guess we will see how it will turn out.Mangas:
If I have a little freetime, I tend to end up browsing Manga Fox for some inspiring mangas. I was very happy to learn that two recent favourites of mine won the 1st and 2nd place of the Next Generation Manga Awards, namely Boku no Hero Academia
(My Hero Academy) and Mahou Tsukai no Yome
(The Ancient Magus' Bride). Both are awesome reads and I totally recommend them to anyone! Boku no Hero Academy is still relatively fresh but it took Naruto's spot almost immediately on the shounen leaderboards. I love school/academy settings when superpowers are included and the story is so exciting and fun so far. Mahou Tsukai no Yome has a very eerie setting that can actually make you believe in faries, witches and other fantastic creatures.
Other than these, I also enjoy reading Korean manwhas/webtoons such as Noblesse
(holy cr*p, that comic is a bishounen goldmine in the best sense with an awesome story to boost), The Girls of Wild's
(Weak boy is the first and only male student of a former Girl-only school that specializes in martial arts on a pro level. What could go wrong? xD) and DICE - The Cube that Changes Everything
(What would you do if you had dices that you could roll to enhance your own stats, be it strenght, wisdom or even charisma? Surely things are ought to go wrong if such a thing were to become widespread...)
Totally recommending these too!DA RP Groups:
While I am still present in multiple groups, currently I am only active in the OCT
as you could tell from my recent artworks. Wish me luck! xDArt:
Hopefully I will have more time to draw after the wedding. I am also very eager to try and design some adoptable characters soon, so don't be surprised if you see some polls or journals about it pop up in the near future. Ideas/suggestions however are already welcome if you are interested in adoptables.
Hmmmm can't think of anything else at the moment. So that's all folks? Wish me good luck and a decent weather for the Big Day! xD My GW2Guru Gallery My Facebook page [MOA] guild site
