Heaps and heaps of stuff has gone on since the last time we spoke / read / typed journal-thingy and before I get some much needed sleep, I'm off to Hobart for the weekend tomorrow, I figured it'd be a good time to kinda spit some of it out!

Alright. Had some super emotional stuff happen, gained a bit more self respect in dealing with the situation and made everything better as a result, bought Demon's Souls and it's freaking great so far, been so inspired with art ideas that I've had no time to play Demon's Souls, my aunt bought me an iPad for my birthday and let me tell you, reading Shonen Jump / watching movies / typing on there is so amazing. Works as a great digital portfolio aswell. DAT RESOLUTION.


So tomorrow I head off to stay with an old college friend and then I hit Area 52 on Saturday for Tasmania's Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Regional event. I'd been on hiatus for a couple of months and did what I could to shake the rust off in the last week, spending heaps of time with great friends who are also going, and also great friends who aren't! (I'm running a Priestess build of Spellbooks FYI)

It's also been six months since I left Sydney and moved back down to Tasmania so last night, after getting most of my Shonen Jump cover competition entry finished, I accepted an invite from a couple of friends and hit the town. I have never been so drunk in my life and as silly as that was, all of us spent today at the Cataract Gorge chilling out in the afternoon and swimming (Khalil and I hit diving wrestling moves on a busted inflatable raft we found. Made for a good dummy. Elbows, Footstomps, Five-Star-Frog-Splashes... I even hit a few Swanton Bombs!) And of course, I got home and finished off my competition entry which you can see is the newest entry in my gallery!

I really hope Kishimoto Sensei thinks it's cool, with Naruto having ended, he's looking at the entries and picking his favourites to comment on. PRESSURE!

I really feel like I'm welcome here in Launceston after six months of being back down and I'm really looking forward to the future, but for now, which is really rare for an anxious person like myself, I haven't got a care in the world and everything is neat-o.

Hope you're all having a neat-o (Gravelord Nito) time aswell!
