--It's outrageous that I waited so much for the first post of the new year, but I must admit that I'm positively busy with some stuff in these days :D
First of all, my collaboration with the Gundam Italian Club
is getting deeper and deeper, and now I take care of online news and I occasionally write articles and reviews (also if I have to write anything yet, LOLOL) for the online magazine, Colony Post
I'm also busy with a comic collaboration with a friend from the forum and his team to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Gundam, which is going to happen in this very new year :D
I also resumed working on commissions, so I'm busy by default, also if I'm getting kinda slow with them 'cause I'm losing my multitasking skills D:
I apologize with the guys who are waiting for my pics T^T From tomorrow I'll be on "forced" vacation from work, so I will get my usual rhythm back.
In the last weeks I also developed some relatively new interests that I hope to practice as soon as I'll have my shipments from all around the world delivered home XD
The first is gunpla
, an interest that started from Ludica
's experiences and developed as I attended the GIC forum and kept watching Gundam Build Fighters
The second is that of custom dolls
, an enterely new world that was brought to my attention first by the internet and then by the fact that expensive action figures are EXPENSIVE
x'DDD At first I thought "Why I can't build one myself, then?" and then it degenerated in molesting an abroad Teap to get my shit at a decent price x'DD
As I get new interests I'll probably care less about others (since I'm not a millionaire XD), so I guess that the first hobby that I'll drop will be cosplay, since I never cared so much in the first place and it's really expensive and time consuming (also if I'll still wear the costumes that I have every now and then for the sake of convention fun :3)-- Then I was seriously considering to drop doujinshi printing, considering that the shipping fees are going to increase with the next Italian financial deliriums... It's been a while since I was planning to distribute my doujinshi digitally as in websites like digiket
-- I guess it's time to take action now x'D
On a completely different subject, I'm very proud by the fact that my first picture of the year is a glorious self-portrait!

A girl with a refreshed hair-cut is invincible, ahahah!
I don't think that I have new resolutions for this brand new year, all in all I'll try to have fun and make profit of my past experiences to enjoy life the best I can for these upcoming 12 months as usual.
Surely, this time I'll be more aware of what I am.
I recently watched on TV one of those stupid weekly extras of the TV news-- It was about graphology and that time they talked about the people who write exactly like I do, in a pointy, careless way.
The expert said that that was typical of fussy, rigid people, and that these guys tend to use this punctilious, whiny attitude to cover their sensitive, underconfident self.
I never considered myself underconfident, whoever knows me in real life tends to describe me like a caustic General out of some B-movie about Nazis, but I guess that it's right.
Compared to many people who claim themselves artists, creatives or mere "sensitive spirits", my impression on what I do is pretty modest, after all.
I'm happy when I draw, when I write or when I share some knowledge, but it's hard for me to consider myself "an artist" or "a writer" or "an expert" on something, also if I'm perfectly aware that I'm pretty better at what I do that many of my fellow "creatives"-- Yeah, I'll confess you that when I say that I'm a genius, I don't really think that and I'm mostly trolling you XD
Maybe I'm doing wrong? Maybe I'm just a sore loser? --I don't think I care, and for now I'll just keep writing in my pointy, careless way, hoping that someone would care about what I'm talking instead of focusing only on my calligraphy ;D
