SUPER GROUP Upgrade!
This is a donation pool to help make sailorsenshi a SUPER Group so we can fix our messy Folders, Hold Polls to vote for contests, and just improve the group overall! This amount will get us 12 months of SUPER-ness! Thanks for your support.
*There is a Limited Time sale for the Super Group update with no end date listed so the Goal may increase later on depending on that.
I feel it's time to re-write this again. It's always too long so perhaps it'll be shorter now.
Personal, Professional and dA
I am a professional Graphic Designer who works on the graphics for in-store displays and a little bit of product packaging art. I also am learning the Structure Design side so that I can also design the displays and boxes I lend my art talents to.
I am 26 and happily engaged to my soulmate. We've been together for over 6 years now and are getting married on August 12th!
I run the sailorsenshi group here on dA, you should check it out and maybe donate toward our Super Group Status! *wink wink* We do a lot of Collaborations and a few contests.
Drawing is a hobby for me, you can see I don't really do commissions or anything. I typically draw what I want with a few Contest Prize related exceptions (See Above: I run a group haha).
Reading A little under two years ago I started reading. Not that I didn't before but when I say started reading I mean I read 36 books in 2015, 75 books in 2016 and I'm up to 18 books in 2017 (as of March 22)
Writing I have stories in my head, stories i attempt to get onto paper and usually fail to...well...finish. Perhaps they will be for me only forever and ever.... although that seems sad. I want to write a book, I just need the motivation and TIME ugh!
Gaming Between my fiancé and I, we have all the most recent systems. We both have Xbox One, both have Nintendo 3DS and share a PS4 and a Wii U and my Nintendo Switch
We also have some older consoles.
Proud of These
I keep starting journals and end up not finishing them and just trashing them, haha. I just kept going “no, not enough to say, bleh”
Colossalcon was great, which is all I ever got to before haha. It was 5 days of no work, waterpark, friends, con things and great food I spent too much money on, haha. One night Koji went to get ice and came back with a person locked out of their room so that was different.
E3 is happening RIGHT NOW and Ric and I watched the Xbox/Microsoft one together last night and that Xbox One X is ours! We already decided to get it for each other for Christmas this year and Ric and I have soooo many points on his Gamestop pro card that he’s using them to help us get them (cause we’re getting two, no sharing the Xbox! Just the PS4, and Nintendo systems minus the 3DS lol) It sucks that it comes out only a couple weeks before our planned Honeymoon (because Fall>Summer ) but it’ll just give us even MORE to look forward to. Like— LIKE
Assassin’s Creed Origin ------in EGYPT!!!! It looks SOOOOOOO good. SO good. I am so excited. And a new Ori game! Ori and the Will of the Wisps. All those birds :sob: :sniffle: yes. Anthem also looks AMAZING and I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting SW Battlefront 2. Looks so awesome! And that game called Ashen (I think it’s Indy maybe?) is so interesting looking, so cool. Ahhhhh.
I was playing Overwatch all weekend and went up 10+ levels (I’m thinking I actually started in the 50’s and now I’m almost 80, but that could have been earlier in the week I am thinking of) the double XP event was great haa! I finally got the Anniversary D.Va skin and also Symmetra’s. I was so excited. I mostly played Mystery Heroes but ended up playing a lot of quick play as Mercy and absolutely slaying somehow haha. I healed 19k damage one match and it was (I believe if I remember correctly) 56% of the damage my team took that match. I got invited to play with a team and we killed it, it was great. I was doing so well (and my team!) that I kept getting my Ult and reviving everyone when they died over and over XD they did good not dying too often.
OH and I got an email while I was at Colossalcon that I won a Giveaway on Goodreads! I won an ARC (Advance Readers Copy) of Kristin Cashore’s new book Jane, Unlimited and I got it last Thursday! (it said 4-6 weeks not days! Haha) I’m liking it so far but the writing style is different so it’s getting some taking used to. I was so excited for it
Still super stressful with Wedding things. I can’t wait for the day and afterword I will not only be married to my best friend and soulmate— but there will be no more planning.
I think Colossalcon is sneaking up on me! With all the wedding planning I haven’t been paying much attention to other events. It’s only two weeks away! It’s the one we spend Wednesday through Sunday at the Kalahari. Water Park, Convention, Friends, Yes.
I love Colossalcon If we were to go to only one convention a year, it would be Colossalcon. In fact, it’s one of only two Ric and I are going to this year. We’re missing Matsuricon for the first time because our Wedding is just a couple weeks before and then we WERE planning for Youmacon but we’re going on our Honeymoon in November (avoid dem kiddie crowds at Universal also easier to get our friend’s on-the-private-beach-condo rental … for less!). We wanted a fall wedding but with my sister attending Veterinarian school/college in Ireland, she’d have to miss it! She’s only home for the summer.)
Work has been extra awesome. 99% sure I’m getting some new tools to help me work. Very excited. Also just transferred over to a new Mac with the proper servers connected, the messanger on it, etc. so that’s very helpful and I won’t have to use my PC as often (just for Structure work!)
Only 86 days until the big day O-O I only just finished designing my invites and RSVP last night! I will probably remove some names and insert place holder names and location and upload here for you all to see at some point. (Don’t want any of those weirdo wedding crashers or crazy people haha)
I will at least upload the image I “painted” (digitally in Photoshop) for them.
Random Annoyance I ran into recently: People complaining about “the 9-5”. Try 8-5. 9-5 would be great. Stop complaining. (I’m actually 6am-5pm today, so, even more so. Dang Safety Committee lol)
BUT YEAH ART IS A THING
I haven’t been doing a lot.
But. Wedding planning. Designing own Invites. Yeah.
