In 2015 I...

Time for the yearly recap of stuff that I did in 2015! There were some rough patches for me but it was a good year overall. (You can't expect every year to be amazing, haha that's crazy talk... and unrealistic.)  I will be starting a new contract with the same studio, so that is great! One of the worst things to stress about is having a job and I'm so glad I don't have to worry about money this year.

Unfortunately this year was my worst year for posting on my blog. (Under 40 posts!) Which seems crazy to me but I'm also not stressed or worried about it. I decided early on to only post when I felt like it. There were times when I just didn't feel like it (but ended up posting a lot on Instagram because it's so easy.) and other times when I just had no time, or nothing was happening. (I live a boring life.) I hope to double my posts next year but we'll see.

Anyways, here is a list of some of the highlights from the year, in random order.
In 2015 I...
participated in Inktober for the first time and it got me back into drawing and painting almost daily again!
went to Fan Expo but decided to take a step back from it and let Justin have the whole table. (I was feeling burnt out around this time and needed a break).
started juicing and making smoothies. Basically I started eating healthier in general and recently cut out meat from my diet. And I feel great!
 moved and we are loving the new place!
dyed my hair a couple more times. (rainbow being my favourite!) Then decided to give my hair a rest and go back to something a little more natural. And honestly I do not miss having to touch up my hair every 2 - 3 months.
went to Wayhome with Tania and had a blast. Hope we can go again next year!

went on our first 'big' trip together (Justin had never been on a plane before) to Jamaica for a friend's destination wedding.

Other things that happened in 2015;

I did Fire Hooping for the first time! Stopped doing movie reviews because we don't live near a movie theatre anymore. Niagara Falls Comic Con + First time ever doing a panel on animation! Toronto ComiCon Vlog.Visited some art galleries. Paid off half my student loan! Got a couple small tattoos.

And a big Thank you to YOU!
Even though my blog has been a bit quiet this year, I still see people clicking and sometimes commenting. It means a lot to me, so thank YOU.

Smells ya later. :]

Goals for 2015: Recap

Looking at my goals for 2015, I actually didn't accomplish a lot of them. And I'm okay with that. I did a lot of other things this year. Anyways here's how I did for my goals this year...
Pay half my loan(s) (Yes!)
I did it. I'm at the half way mark! WOO!

A painting a month (Nope)
Ha! I did not do this at all. But I've been drawing and painting a lot more now since I did Inktober.

A roll of film a month (Nope)
I think I started out good with this one but then I slowed down a lot near the end of the year. Eh, It happens.

Design my own fabric (Kinda)
I DID design my own fabric I just never purchased any (other than samples) to make anything out of it.

Lose weight (Kinda)
I did lose some weight this year. Not a super-duper amount but I'm on the right track now and I'm feeling better every day.
How did you do on your goals from 2015?

Draw with Me!

I've been a bit flakey with my blog since summer. I feel like this always happens to me around the summer time though. Like, I've noticed even other blogs aren't posting as much and aren't getting as many comments on their posts. Maybe it's just me but I feel like people are gravitating more towards watching videos instead of reading posts. But maybe that's just me?

Anyways for the handful of people still following my blog, you may have known for a while that I have a YouTube channel. I've posted a few vlogs and whatnot over the last year or so.... But I want to start adding more videos on a somewhat regular basis. I've already added two new videos 'Draw with Me', where... you watch me draw. Anyways go subscribe there if you haven't already and let me know what kind of videos you'd like to see!
