Derp derp Blog-fail.

Hello friends ~

As I sit here awaiting my delicious 3rd cup of coffee (drip drip goes coffeemaker), I must reflect with near-embarassment on how I've been such a neglectful blog-mommy. Over a month ago, I had such grand plans for my humble little blog - I was freelancing, had tons of time, and was actually starting to feel at home, nestled in my corner of the interwebs.

And then I got a job. Completely unexpected, out of the blue. To be honest, I was counting on finishing up the spring in LA and then moving back home to the East Coast. I had sent out the last batch of applications, and had settled into a content sort of peace with my decision. Literally the day after I had finally "decided" to move home, I got a call from my soon-to-be boss, asking me to come in for an interview. I went in on Friday and it just clicked, and on Monday I was training. Wham-bam, thank you ma'am. And that's that. My job had obviously thrown all of my blog-inspired delusions of grandeur right out the window.

But only temporarily.

I still want to make this thing a fun, informative, quirky, artsy place. I am making a mid-years resolution to stay updated with internet goodies, my own work, and fun stuff. Changes might be coming in terms of my personal life, but fear not! My little blog will not go hungry for want of interesting content; no, I will be an awesome blog-mommy and fill its little belly with internet tastiness! * U *;;;

And now, for a happy helping of said content! Please enjoy "Ship-Shape with Ponyo", a lovely fanart painting I created during a week of migraines when the only thing that saved me was this movie, my coffeemaker, my pillow, and the couch.

Well, lovelies, coffee is finished and I have some art to bust out :) Will update more very soon!
