I had my messages on dA fluctuating from the 500's to 300's for maybe over a month now;;;
Partly why I've been such a ghost lately was because the number of deviations and messages were so daunting, my wrist would cramp up just thinking about it, so just now I ended up deleting all the messages in hopes that I can actually keep up with you guys again.
So if I missed anything important, lemme know ; w ;
I would get into why I've been away, but before that- heck, I don't even think I can mention it after this- but man...the stuff that's been happening in Japan...or has happened anyway;;;...
I've been keeping up with it on Captalia (Hetalia's Capslock community on livejournal) nearly non-stop...even if the deaths and destruction are absolutely devastating, it was comforting to see just how loving and caring the people in that community really are- not just for Japan, but for the other countries, and even the ones affected by tragedy in the past. (Indonesia, Haiti, what happened with Katrina, etc)
Unfortunately, I can't say the same for deviantART.
Don't get me wrong, I love every single one of my friends and watchers on here, but seeing the overall attitude of dA's artists during such a hard time made me feel kind of sick; as though I were seeing dA's true colors for the first time in all of the 6 years that I've been a member.
Don't worry, I'm not leaving dA because of this, but that thought sure as heck crossed my mind a few times. Basically, what I saw were two sides of the same coin:
1) omg you only care because its JAPAN and for your beloved animus and mangos and manga-kyas and blahblahblah YOU'RE SUCH A WEEABOO
2) omg how could they post-pone the newest chapter of my favoritest Shonen Jump series?! T___T
Both responses are absolutely deplorable, but I won't go into detail because I'm sure everyone's heard both sides of the story by now =
But anyway, I feel bad for neglecting STP in particular. Whenever I think about drawing, my wrist starts to hurt, and even then, nothing ever comes out, let alone something decent.
At this point I'd probably only be able to poop out crack doodles for STP.
...Which actually doesn't sound like such a bad idea, now that I think about it XD
Maybe it'd be just what the doctor ordered? If nobody minds me putting off my long list anyway.
Incidentally, this thought was something that came into my head just now; so I won't really add it to my to-do list. My to-do list is already freakishly long;;;;
Anyway, I'mma go to sleep but play some vid'ja games first, so see ya C:
Listening to: Nothin'~
Reading: my journal
Watching: all of you!
