(whoa the journal system is all new and crazy.. wat is this)
Man, so I'm forever sorry about my long absense and my silence. To be honest not a whole lot has been going on, except for these last X amount of months I've been really sick, and it was only just VERY recently that the problem, hopefully, has been found and solved. But yeah I've been having these really bad stomach problems where I would feel nauseous or just pain almost all the time, but especially after I ate. And then once or twice a month I would get this severe, ungodly pain that would totally knock me down for three or four days. I think in March or April I ended up going to the hospital after one such uber pain attack happened, and I had not been able to eat or even drink much water for 4 days and then when I tried to eat some crackers I ended up throwing up... so I was super dehydrated and starved and ptty much felt like I was dying lol. So since April, I've been finally able to see specialists to try and find the problem, and FINALLY after all these tests ( one of which I was radioactive for a whole day and couldn't go near kids or pregnant women LOL.. I was hoping I'd get some sweet mutant power afterwrd but no :< ) they determined my gallbladder is inflamed and not working correctly and basically has been slowly trying to kill me but not really lol. And now just last week I underwent surgery to get it removed and am now recovering. But yeah, so basically this whole year I've been battling this (I was having those extreme stomach pains since January but initial tests didn't show anything), and by April that's when I really started feeling miserable.. all in all I dropped 20+ pounds in a way too short period of time because of it and needless to say my art productivity was greatly stunted. Feeling sick all of the time and then not getting the nutrition a body needs, my depression and anxiety have been really bad, and also have been under some financial distress... and I've just felt too yucky and then art blocked, even when I tried to art.
But, now that its gone, I'm hoping after recovery is over I'll be able to get back to my old self. I've got a ton of commisions I've had to put on hold until I was well, and I just feel so grateful to all of my commissioners for being so kind and patient and understanding during all of this. m(_ _)m Anyhoo, that's basically what's been going on haha.
I think I'm going to go answer some long overdo comments, or go and lay down, but hopefully will be back to you all soon!

P.S.ANYBODY BEEN WATCHING ATTACK ON TITAN/SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN AND/OR FREE! ???
I'm pretty obsessed with both right now, like most of the animoo community hahaha. This is the first time in, uh, ever, that I'm into a new anime as it's coming out ad while it's still relevant and popular lolol. SnK basically is an anxiety attack with every episode (also like everyone else lol I'm becoming quite smitten with Levi though I love most of the characters quite dearly, and am terrified for their lives constantly T_T), and Free! is like Christmas for my eyeballs.. I'm basically Kou in that I just am like reeling from ze hot bodies in every episode. And Rei is my spirit animal, while Mako kills me with the face and just dear lord that body. T_T I basically just want Mako hugs forever.
