God it's been a while; like... nearly a year since I did a journal on dA.UPDATE:
So I guess for those who don't know, I've spent the last year living and working in Canada with the lovely ~Antilamonn
. It's been a hell of an experience, and a total culture shock, coming from a little island at the bottom of the Pacific, coming to the big North America.
Learning things like how to traverse the Metro system, despite never having been underground before, and then exploring 4 storey high Shopping centers, only to find out that I'm still underground. Dealing with the foreign language barrier, fighting heat waves and 2 months later, snow storms; driving on the wrong side of the road, discovering god does exist and his name is actually Poutine, and discovering that McDonalds Cheeseburgers still taste better back home.
From selling fake perfume out the back of a car, or Halloween merchandise out of a storage container depot, to selling air conditioning insurance across Canada; I've met a lot of cool and diverse people, and I've lost count of the times I've tried to explain that NewZealand is that island next to
, but not
part of Australia, nor Europe, nor South America, nor Asia or Australia (I need to say it two times because it seemed to pop up a lot).
It's been a really fun year, though it's starting to draw to a close with my VISA expiring next month; which means I'll be heading back home, at l;east until I've gotten myself residency and can stay up there permanentlyyy.
I guess yeah; if I needed to justify having a relatively silent year on dA; it's 'cos I've been doing things abroadOTHER STUFF
In the meantime, I've created a blog. Whatever I don't post on dA, I post there; more frequently and hastily. I'll try updating it with sketches or WIPs or something, maybe, possibly in the future;
Soyeah, BLOG IS HERE
Ohyeah, bytheway, ALSO: Getting married next month. lol (:
