Hey y'all. Sorry I haven't uploaded anything in forever. I've honestly been way too lazy, and I've been spending time with family. :) I go back to school tomorrow (unfortunately,ugh). Not looking forward to it. Not because it's school, but because where I live it's fucking FREEZING and our furnace is borked at the moment. >.< We'll fix it this weekend. Anyways, I'm kinda looking forward to my classes this semester, because they are Ceramics, two different Humanities classes (Search for Utopia, and something about genocide like the Holocaust), and a Bible studies...thing...class, so all those classes should be interesting. :D

I honestly don't know when I'll submit something again. It's not that I don't want to, I'm just way too lazy, and I've been getting major art block as well. :/ Hopefully I'll upload something soon or something. :shrug:

Anyhow, I went to the doctor today and found out that my levels are MUCH better now than they were back in March or whatever. I got my cholesterol down from like 140-something down to 88, so I'm happy about that. My thyroid levels are exactly where they're supposed to be as well. Plus, great news, as of today, I've lost 48 pounds since last March, so I'm really happy about that. At least I"m finally out of the 300s. :faint: But in any case, I'm glad my health has improved quite a lot. :)

Sorry for a pointless journal, just felt like updating. :D

Hey. Not much has happened, however I may be uploading Attack on Titan art again (mainly AruAni and RivaMika) soon. I took three hours the other night catching up with the manga. 12 chapters is too many. @.@ But at least I'm into it again.  School is hectic and boring as always. Meh. I'm going to try to upload more stuff eventually. Again, I'm lazy. And I'm still not taking or doing requests unless I want to do requests. And I don't at the moment. I'm too lazy to do my own art. Anyway, just thought I'd update that I'm into Attack on Titan again (though I honestly don't feel like I missed much since January, LOL).

Also, rest in peace, Gunnar Hansen, aka the original Leatherface. :'(

(And yes, Skyrawathi, I will upload more Chamiko. Lol)

Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't been super active on here. School, you know? Anyway, thanks to being pressured by :iconfaylinameir: and :iconjimathers:, I decided to try my first livestream tonight (nah, just kidding, they didn't pressure me. I wanted to but was unsure, but Fay and JiM convinced me to and even encouraged it. JiM even sent me his old webcam and microphone headset so I would have no more excuses lol). I'm not sure if I'm going to draw in my sketchbook via webcam, or just ink and maybe colour drawings on my computer instead. I guess it depends on whether or not I can angle the webcam so you can see me draw. If not, I'll have to buy a tripod or something. Anyway, yeah, I'll try to be streaming tonight, I just need to do a test on OBS to make sure things work like how I want them to and to get used to the software. Gah, I'm just nervous to talk haha. Doing the drawing itself may not be that bad, but talking gahhh, makes me self-conscious. >.<

Anyways, I'll try to stream tonight around 7/7:30 pm EST. When the stream is going, I'll update you all. Here's my channel in the meantime:
However, if you want to chat in the chatbox, you'll have to have an account. You don't have to chat if you don't want haha.

See ya next time

Hey guys. Back again with a useless journal. Just wanted to say that school's been back in session for me since last week, and I'm quite busy, but I'm still drawing art to upload here! I'm doing smaller work loads so I don't get so overwhelmed. Maybe once a week or every two weeks I'll probably still upload maybe 10 pictures or something. I dunno. School's okay so far, drawing class is AMAZING, but my other classes bore me lol. And going to and from my art class, I have such heavy stuff to carry to and from the building (my community college has multiple buildings for different departments...quite a hike, if you ask me), and when I go to my last class I'm always sore and aching, out of breath, and feeling like my lungs are going to pop out of my chest. I need to get in shape. Anyway, I'm still going to be drawing and uploading stuff, but gotta juggle school alongside here as well. :) Also, since school is in session, I'm still not taking any requests.

Also, mom's going to call some doctor on Monday to set up an appointment to see me so we can discuss me getting a gastric sleeve surgery performed on me to help me lose weight. Believe me, guys, I've tried everything, but I always gain weight back more each time I lose it. This is my last chance if I don't want to get diabetes or heart problems or whatever. This is big for me. I hope I can be approved to get this surgery done, it's very important for me. :worry:

Other than that, things are going okay. Just wanted to let you all know I'm back in college this semester. Woooo.

Hey guys. Been a while since my last journal, so I thought I'd return with some boring updates.

First off, I'm going to try to be more active with uploading art here. I literally spend an entire week finishing up TONS of art that I scanned en masse, so expect a shit load of art to be submitted soon today. I have never been so fucking happy to get art done. I know I say this every time, but I honestly think I went overboard this time with finishing up art. Never. Again. And this is why I don't take requests anymore: I'm too fucking lazy to do my own art, and when I do, I overexert myself to the point of pure exhaustian. Anyways, I'll be submitting art later on today. For right now, I gotta let my laptop cool off for a bit.

ALSO! I'm going back to college in a couple weeks. I know, I know: "But April!? I thought you said school was too stressful and that you were glad to withdraw from your college!" Yeah, I know. Only here's the thing: This time, my mom is finally letting me go into the art major this time and take art classes (the first time I had art as a major, I was in University and I fucked up both semesters at university, so I had to go to community college and mom dictated what path to take. "Well if you think about being a teacher, then take teaching classes! You already messed up art at Wright State, so now what I say, goes" basically). I mean, sure, at my community college, Art is only a certificate or something and not an "official" major and stuff, but you know what? I'd rather earn just a certificate and be HAPPY with my classes and my path rather than getting a degree or whatever and being miserable earning it. Art is what I love, even if I'm super effing lazy. It's my passion. Despite all that interests me, art is what drives me most. That's why I'm glad to finally get into art classes to get a "degree." Granted, I still have yet to see an academic advisor and plan out my classes, but you know. But I looked ahead at what classes I would take and I'm ecstatic beyond belief at the overwhelming amount of art classes needed to take. Granted, I still gotta take stupid English Comp and Communications classes, but whatever. At least I don't have to take math! :giggle:

Anyways, after staying up until 3am this morning finishing up the last of my art, I've thought about for a while to just submit some fan art that is done traditionally (colour penciles, prismacolor markers, etc) instead of going full blown digital on it. Why? Well, not only because digital makes me weep with self pity when I scan too much fan art, but I've noticed that for pictures that take me two hours digitally, I could have finished it completely coloured with coloured pencils or whatever in just an hour or so. Plus I really need to use my prismacolors and colour pencils. They're hardly used. Lol. So if in the future I submit traditional artwork, that's why.

Enough of my rambling. See y'all later when I submit en masse!

I'm currently pissed off. My e-mail account, the one I've had since 2004, has been fucking hacked. I've had my suspicions for months, but I'm really starting to acknowledge it exists. I think the hacker is some fucking Russian. >.< For example, for many months, I kept getting my inbox filled with fashion newsletters I never even subscribed to (the only sites I've signed up for email newsletters are from sites like IJReview and other Conservative sites), and got several e-mails from someone at one of those Russian mail sites, like or something like that. It all started months ago, I think. When I ordered some Foamy merch from, I had to use PayPal. Now, I tried signing up with PayPal before, but it was too confusing so I quit and deleted my account before I could finish (whenever I use PayPal to buy stuff, it's only to use my e-mail and billing info, no account needed). Then the next month the bill came in, my card was charged $100 when I only spent about $35 on Foamy merch and $7.99 for Netflix. Something was fishy, but I paid no mind to it. And now, every so often, I get e-mails sent to my kiddypatches account telling me that my ebay and skype accounts have been suspended due to "suspicious activity," when I know for a fact I haven't done anything bad. Then today, I tried to log into my Origin account, and it told me my password was incorrect, despite me entering it EXACTLY the way I did just last night. And so I changed it, and I tried to change my e-mail that I had on my account (I got a new Yahoo e-mail today), but the security question answer was deemed "incorrect," even though I KNOW what I put for my answer. I'd never lie and put something stupid I'd never remember. And now I gotta call EA tomorrow and get it sorted out, or at least try to. I've heard EA's help line is horrible. >.< But I need to get this under control. Once I get EA sorted out, I'm deleting my e-mail for good. Stupid hackers. I don't understand why they can't leave people's accounts alone!

Hey again. I've been thinking, and, as much as I dislike Instagram, I'm tempted to make an Instagram to follow people I like who have one, and so if I finish a doodle or drawing I'm too lazy to scan, I could just post it on Instagram. I'm not sure. I probably will get one. I'll only follow a couple people so my news feed won't be cluttered with duck faced selfies or peoples lunch. Meh. If I get one, I'll update you guys.

Hey guys! I just realized today is my seven year anniversary of having a deviantART account. :XD: Well, I created my OLD account 7 years ago today (now deactivated). I've come a long way as a person and an artist. I still shudder when I remember back to the things I said and did on my old account. I'm so embarrassed at how horrible and immature I was. And my art, good lord. I've come such a long way since 2008. I've learned a lot over the years. :XD:

Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning for a follow-up to see how my prescriptions are helping and stuff. Luckily my thyroid is back to the number it needs to be. However, the doctor said the numbers for my cholesterol were quite high, so he prescribed be some medicine, I think it's a generic version of Lipitor (I don't know how to spell it xD) to try to get my cholesterol under control. Well, if I exercise and lose weight, it'll no longer be necessary to take this new prescription. Damn you junk food for being so tasty! :shakefist:

Just a small update for now~ ta ta~

I just need to not be so lazy XD and I just started playing the Sims 2 for the first time last night. I'm already hooked! (Though sims 3 is still better in my opinion XD) gah sorry for all that rambling. I'm just psyched because of my new phone! :love: also, am I the only one who keeps getting BOMBARDED with irritating app advertisements that take up the whole page every time I go somewhere on mobile? -__-

Hey guys. I'm a bit stumped here and a bit agitated. I've come to the conclusion that either I can't be on the internet on my laptop for very long, or be on the internet PLUS run an antivirus scan with my antivirus program whenever it detects a threat. I've come to the conclusion it's probably the latter, because the past two times I've done both at the same time (last Saturday early morning, and earlier today as a matter of fact), my computer gave me the Blue Screen of Death. Maybe the laptop just overheated from all of that processing information. I think it could be that, too (although if computers overheat, they blue screen every time upon use, so...meh), since my laptop seems to get hotter while using the internet for too long. Even when playing the Sims or any other high-processing games, my computer doesn't overheat that much. But then again, Windows just installed a crap ton of unnecessary updates last week, so that could be another reason. Months ago, back in August, my computer blue screened because of updates, but it only happened once and I forgot about it. Computers are fucking annoying, I swear. :/ If I had the money, I'd buy myself a better computer, but alas they cost an arm and a leg these days. Oh well. Ignore my rambling. :XD:

I know I say this a lot, but recently I found more old art of mine from like, 2007-10. I really want to redraw them all, so whenever I submit more art eventually, it will definitely be redraws of old fan art of mine from way back in the day. Meh. It's 3am, I can't sleep. :faint: Woohoo, though, I'm gonna play Facade later though. Woot!

Hello again people~:iconpatrickiloveyouplz:

I'm back with another unimportant journal entry. HOORAH! :la:...^^;

Well, some new stuff has kinda happened to me recently (not much, nothing important XD). First of all, last week I got my hair dyed to burgundy~! :love: I LOVE it!!! It makes me feel like a totally new person! Also, the other day at the Salvation Army, I got myself a new chair for the desk in my room. This one has a back to it, has wheels (that suck), is very comfortable, and SPINS!!!!! :la::excited: When I clean my room next week, I'll start using it. Hopefully this way I'll be more inspired when I draw. :D

Also, this week, I had pulled a muscle in my back when I was sleeping, so for days my back hurt like hell. :faint: It hurt to even move just a teeny bit or get out of bed and stuff. :( Luckily my back pain is 90% gone today. Thank goodness for that. @_@ Also lately, I've been watching a lot of the original Star Trek for the first time (I've watched it with mom almost every day for the past two or three weeks), and I'm loving it! :love: It's on that new channel, ME TV, it shows old TV shows from like the 50s-80s. I've been watching it a lot with mom and I'm starting to like some of those old shows like Star Trek, Emergency!, Welcome Back Kotter, Superman (with George Reeves), and so many more. It's an awesome TV channel. :D

As for art, I'm working on some pictures now, so they should be up by Sunday or Monday. Tuesday at the latest. I wish I didn't draw, scan, and colour art in bulk. @__@ it always takes FOREVER to get them done. :faint:

This coming week, I'll be busy cleaning my room. :XD: And hopefully this week me and mom can finally see the new Spongebob movie. :excited: I hope it's a good movie. :D I am looking forward to it a lot! :la:

Also, I think I'm planning to do a Gaara x Ino comic. I already have some ideas in my head for a story. But first I have to brainstorm the layout and stuff. :XD: I'm looking forward to doing it! However, I want some quick advice: there is a long flashback scene that sets up the story/is tied in to the story quite a bit. Should I put it in the first chapter and go from there or put it in later to explain the things that happened up to that point? Gah I fail xD

Anyway, see you all next time!

...I now ship GaaIno. I didn't think it was possible. :faint: But now, I am complete smitten with this crack pairing! :love::date: I've tried to like this pairing in the past by watching videos and browsing fan art, but it never seemed to appeal to me. I honestly don't know why, but a couple hours ago I felt like looking up GaaIno art again to try once more to see its appeal and ship it, and I think it finally worked because so much beautiful fan art FINALLY converted me to a shipper of Gaara and Ino! :excited: I guess my shipping tastes finally changed. :D I just find this couple adorable and hilarious at the same time! :giggle: I even have some fan art ideas of my own brewing in my head~;) I'm really glad I gave this couple another chance. :la: TIME TO READ FANFICS!!!! :excited:

Hey guys! ^_^

I'll be uploading art again soon, hopefully. Anyway, I was watching some Shane Dawson on his vlogging channel, Shane, and he was reacting to his old videos, pictures, and all that stuff. It reminded me of something I've been thinking about doing for the longest time, though I never did it.

I've been wanting to "react" to old fan art of mine from as far back as I can remember (at least seventh grade...maybe even before, but my room is so messy and I have tons of sketchbooks as it is from just the past few years xD), or at least show it to you guys on a video and link it here. It'd be like a little trip down memory lane and that way it shows how much I've improved since like 2007. Maybe I might react to old videos I made on my earlier youtube accounts, too. Who knows? :XD:

I don't know if I'll do it or not, but I just thought I'd put this out there in case I do decide to do it one day. :D

Also, thank you guys so much for almost 100,000 page views and almost 1,000 watchers! It really means a lot to me! :hug:

Well guys, I finally did it. I withdrew from my remaining semester at college. There was literally NO way to bring up all of my failing grades. I was way too far behind, so unless all my classes assigned extra credit worth a bajillion points, there was no way I would pass. Withdrawing would look better on my transcript than D's and F's. This semester was way too overwhelming for me. I'm glad I withdrew. My mom had even suggested I do it. Seriously, I only had like 3 or 4 weeks left and there's no way I could bring up my grades as they were. I'm just glad I got it over with. Maybe next year I'll be more focused, but for right now, college isn't an option for me. I may probably look for a job this summer or something. :shrug: At least now I'll have more time to work on art when I want to instead of school holding me back.

Also, guys, I'm at almost 100,000 pageviews! :la: I'm so excited! I never thought I'd get this far!

This is about a week late, but I just want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday last Wednesday. :love: It really meant a lot to me! Last week was really fun~

I had slept in until about noon. When I woke up, me and mom, and my grandma and stepgrandpa went out for dinner at a Mexican Restaurant in my city (it's been a tradition for the past few years now for birthdays). Luckily mom didn't tell the employees this year it's my birthday. I was so not looking forward to them singing "Happy Birthday" to me and plop on a big heavy sombrero on my head. :XD:  After dinner, we had cake and I got to open my presents. For my presents, I got:

-Season 17 of South Park
-Mr. Peabody & Sherman
-Nickelback's album "Dark Horse"
-One Republic's first album, I think it's called "Dreaming Out Loud" or something like that.
-A GameStop gift card
-A Barnes & Noble gift card
-An iTunes gift card

After dinner, me and mom went straight to the mall where I got my ears pierced again for the third time (I had gotten my ears pierced in 2003 but they grew back; I got them pierced again on my 13th birthday in 2008 but they grew back after I had an unfortunate incident with my right ear as well as an infection...*shudders*), and I really like how they look! I also went shopping around the store I got my ears pierced in and got a few more earrings as well as an iPhone 4 case that says "If I Had a British Accent, I'd Never Shut Up." Aw yeah!

Then, I went to Hot Topic, one of my favourite stores ever! I got:
-A Death Note shirt with a chibi L
-An Alice in Wonderland tote bag/purse
-Attack on Titan earrings
-A Sailor Moon keychain

Then next door, mom found a nice store for plus sized clothing, and so I finally found some really nice bathing suits my size for this summer! I also got a very nice skull bracelet, and mom got herself lots of cheap bracelets that were on sale. I love that store now, too! But sadly the stuff there is so expensive. ;-;

Lastly in the mall, I went to GameStop and I bought a couple of Wii games (it's sad how just plain Wii games and PS2 games are getting harder to find at GameStop), a Freddi Fish game, and I also got Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games! :la: I was a bit annoyed, though. :XD: The game I had wanted to play SO MUCH two years ago, Calling, they didn't have back then, but this time, they DID have it! I was so aggravated. XD Well, not really. I really wanted to play it years ago, but after watching Pewdiepie play the full game, I realised how boring and slow the game really is. Oh well~

Then mom took me to Five Below where I got:
-A new laptop cooler
-An Alice in Wonderland book
-A Goofy plush
-Lots of pocky and Japanese candy
-Grumpy Cat stickers~

And that was the end of my day on my birthday last week. I also got a few gifts from some friends and a wonderfully FANTASTIC video made by my lovely boyfriend~ Here is a link to his video for me~:

So again everyone, thank you so much for the birthday wishes last week! :hug: And on a good note, my antidepressants are working WONDERS for me! I feel so much better now~
