I hope everyone is doing well and keeping your fighting spirits up and high
I wanted to post an update (of sorts).
So, last night was the registration to the artist alley at my local anime convention. It was stressful and thrilling; a lot of crazy things happened in a span of one minute...But my application went in and I got a reply this morning. I am not sure if I should be saddened or stressed out, since the reply I got was: You're on a waiting list; we'll keep you posted.
First off, wow D: The spots sold out within the first minute the AA registration opened? Holy crap. Secondly, so...am I to make (potential) convention items or should I put my life on halt until I get a green light? I never liked being in a limbo state. Worst of all, there is not clear indication of when I should just give up on waiting for them to tell me since "last minute cancellations" can happen and you have a spot on the waiting list...I mean, I've experienced this before with this con; the last time, I was notified 3 weeks before the convention's happening that I got the spot...and I had to rush and make things :/ What do? What do? Well, I'm going to have to just sit tight and wait I guess. Nothing else I can do, but I do hope I'll get some good news...If not, I'll have to think of something to make money on the side for school supplies...
In other news, I think I've come to like this art streaming thing :'Dc It is kind of a really nice way to make sure I'm drawing something/practicing daily. I mean, I enjoy interacting with the viewers who stop by and chat, but it's also really good and helpful for me since the notion someone is watching you to make sure you're drawing daily is both daunting and reassuring. You know, good or bad the drawing might be, you're practicing daily and making progress. All in all, I'm enjoying it and I got to meet and interact with other people who stuck around
And sometimes it get suggestions/recommendations for improvement, and it's like a nice learning experience
Always fun to be learning something as much as we can while we're at it :'Dc That's always some good news
Sorry for sounding preachy...I'll stop that now XD
Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well
All the best in your endeavors!!!! Keep your spirits high~
