I know the Hetalia-as-FF-Tactics isn’t completely original, but I had this lineart left over from the askblog, and I just wanted something lowkey to colour while winding down from a tiring week, and this was perfect =)
For anyone who remembers this ask, here’s the coloured version!
The priorities kind of don’t match up.
As for the location: wherever is more convenient at the given time, really. Though we like to keep out of the high-class resorts
unless we have a good deal.
Just a quick little (transparent) thank you for the overwhelmingly positive feedback on my last post. You guys are awesome and I love you the most.
You were all very supportive of the reduced schedule, so this is what it’s going to be. On my part, I’ll make the effort to peek in at least once a month.
Keep on rocking, you guys ♥
So. Um. Hello. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? How has everyone been?
I’ve started getting some worried messages about my wellbeing, as well as messages wondering if this blog has been abandonned, and I think I owe you all an explanation.
So first off, if you’ve been worried about me, I appologize for any trouble! I honestly didn’t mean to just dissapear on you like that, and am quite a bit embarrassed that it happened.
I would also like to sincerly appologize to anyone who I might have disapointed with just disapearing without even an explanation. That was kind of not a great thing to do.
So here’s the thing: I am currently going through a preeeeetty rough spot in my life. Nothing extremely drastic, but mostly just money/work/graduation (and lack of all these things) related. And while I’m not even close of landing on the streets or starve or anything, it is still a very stressful place to be, mentally. One of the drawbacks is that it has killed my “funnybone” and my motivation overall to do anything creative/that requires effort to be creative. I’ve literally spent months not drawing a thing, which hasn’t happened in years. I knew that I wanted to draw, that I needed to draw, but I just couldn’t muster up the motivation.
But see, I love this blog. I really really love it. It has been the source of much joy and entertainment, and while it was never super popular (not that I minded, I like small things!), it still was such a fun experience for me. And I don’t want to ruin this. I want my posts to be little “stories”, the answers to be a little more creative than just a mugshot of the character answering “yes” or “no” to a question. My format is what I enjoy most on this blog, and it seemed to be the same for you guys.
And so, as things go, I was suddenly really afraid of “ruining” things. Of not being able to live up to what I build up myself. WHICH IS REALLY DUMB I totes agree. So I just “took a break, nothing long, just a few days or a week or two” and… yeah. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH PROCRASTINATING KIDS, it takes over and suddenly you’re super embarrassed by the thought of coming back like nothing ever happened. Don’t do as I did, only despair lies that way щ(ﾟДﾟщ)
So what now?
Well, on one hand, I kind of want to pick it up again, somehow. Just drawing the picture above was really fun! But on the other hand, I still feel like I might ruin things/might have ruined them already. SO I DON’T KNOW
If I picked this up again, it would be on a pretty reduced schedule, once-a-week at maximum, once-a-month not excluded. Then again, I also had people say that a sporadic update schedule was less enjoyable than a clear cut with an “ending” (not that I would ever break them up or anything, just an clear ending of the blog, like one final post with a picture of them riding into the sunset and… no that’s terrible).
So I… dunno guys, what DO you think?
(who’d ever thought that having a blog was so hard? NOT ME SIRRE)
Hello there, dear anon!
As the saying goes “whatever helps, helps!”. And we are very glad to hear that you seem to have found that one thing that helps you, and are even more glad to hear that you are getting better! In fact, those are the best news.
We hope that everything will work out in your favor. You are a very strong person, anon, and we know that you can do it.
(also, say hello to your bff from us! She seems like one amazing person. You both take care of yourselves, okay? okay)
[ ♥ ]
Well, that is one of these things where there is no surefire method to it, alas. Just between the two of us, we have very different methods of dealing with a bad mood, as illustrated below:
one good method seems to be to remove yourself from the source of your bad mood, as far as there is one/that is possible.
Distract yourself! For example, do something you really enjoy: re-read a favorite book, listen to your favorite piece of music, talk to people (or goats) you genuinely like, eat your favorite food in the whole world and enjoy every bite of it.
Alternatively, scream into a pillow. That helps sometimes too (especially when no goats are around).
Be kind to yourself, anon. You deserve it.
Knight lvl 25
A brave and chivalrous warrior of unmatched skill. Uses a knight’s sword to unleash the Arts of War.
It was that, or ‘bard’. He delayed the start of the game for two weeks making this very hard decision.
Dragoon lvl 30
A warrior who may make soaring Jump attacks even in full armor, the dragoon is also a master spearman
He’s a higher level because he did NOT wait for Austria to make his difficult decision.
They’re doing well so far, though they do have to squabble about which quests they wanted to accept, the order in which to accomplish them, and the eternal adventures to find the ins that charge the less for full healing.
