just another immigrant coming up from the bottom turned 1 today!
IT’S OUR ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! I thought I made my VERY FIRST post on this blog a year ago today (I actually created the acct on the 26th, but whatevs). Wow. Where do I even begin? A year ago I wanted to create something. I wanted to invest my time into something I enjoy, and to build a community around shared interests. AND BOY HAS IT BEEN A WILD RIDE SINCE THEN. I’m pretty sure I have about 100+ stories now, and a couple more drabbles/headcanons. My fics are at least 1000+ words, so that means 100 000 words I have written on this blog. That’s insane!! Not to mention, I have just hit 3.6K followers like two days ago!! You guys are awesome!
If you guys know me by now, you know what this means!! A super long essay about how much I love and adore you guys!
First, I want to thank EVERY. ONE. OF YOU. Yes, you. The one reading this right now. Without you, I wouldn’t be who I am today. I know it sounds silly, but I’m serious! You guys have been with me for 365 days!! That’s crazy! You’ve been with me through every bad day, every good day, every writer’s block, every accomplishments, every failures, and etc. I may not share them here on Tumblr, but during these times I do think of you guys! I think of you way more than you think. A lot of my friends know about this blog, and I think they’re very grateful about how much this blog has helped me grow as a person, and a writer. I’M GRATEFUL for how much this blog has saved me. And I hope I can grow even more!
I appreciate you guys so much- so, so, so, so much! I want to thank you for liking my story, for being interested in what I write, and for trusting me enough to share your ideas. You don’t understand how gratifying it is for me to read how much you guys love my story, or how it makes you feel, or just the fact that you guys like my stories so much, you decided to follow me! It’s all so heart-warming to me, and i never want to take that for granted. After one year, I still check every reblog to see if you guys have commented / what you guys write in the tags. After one year, I still get so touched when you come to my Inbox. After one year, I still get so giddy reading your reactions and responses to my story. After one year, I still get so nervous when posting a new fic. After one year, I still light up whenever someone tells me that I’ve inspired me. I want you guys to know that you have humbled me to the nth degree.
I love you guys so very much. Whoever you are, I want you to know that I love and appreciate you. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you. You reading this automatically puts you into my story- my narrative, and you have made the whole chapter beautiful. With every like, every message, every comment, every read you have enriched my life to be so much better. I am so thankful to have you guys in my life, and I hope you know how proud I am to have you guys by my side.
Thank you. Thank you for reading this. Thank you for following me. Thank you for being in my life. Thank you for being you. Thank you for existing. You are my light, and I love you.
I’m tagging EVERYONE on my Tag List bc I want everyone to read this (I hope you guys don’t mind)!!
Aww thx you guys for all the support and love, wouldn’t be anywhere here without any of you guys and would also like to thank my friends who draw me on occasion or when they’re bored XD, but thank you everyone.
Hello Everyone! I’m supper excited to announce my art book pre-orders ;w; ! I’ve been working hard for the past few weeks (or the last 6 years in a way :P ) on putting together this art-book - it’s been a REALLY long time coming, and I have accumulated a vast amount of artwork that I’d like to share with you guys! I couldn’t fit even close to everything I wanted into a single artbook (and it still ended up over 100 pages), so i decided to dedicate this one almost exclusively to my original characters and traditional artwork.
This book also has a section dedicated to the development of my graduate thesis: an animated short trailer for my long-time personal project called IDFracture. I have selected a variety of drawings from the planning-stages of my animation, such as storyboards, thumbnails, visual development sketches, etc. It’s a good look behind the scenes! The several months I had to give 100% to my original creation was the best time of my life so far. I hope that some day soon I will become financially independent enough to do it again, and this time create something I am truly proud of.
I just wanted to take a moment and thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my work. Some of you guys have followed me for nearly a decade, and having your constant support has been a blessing that I am very lucky to have. You have granted me faith in my artwork and above all, faith in my ideas and their worth…. thank you!
Since I started posting my doodles for Pink Diamond’s (and recently White’s too) design, followers have been popping like daisies 0_0
I’m almost reaching 150, planned to do smth for my 100 followers but was in a family trip so ended up doing nothing
Meanwhile here are MOAR Diamond Authorithy doodles and sketches to thank you guys! (people can ask me too or suggest me which one of these would like to see finished ^^)
In this first one I like to think that the diamonds are all of differnet heights (WD being the tallest, then followed by Blue, Yellow and finally Pink being the shortest) I headcannon YD being the 2nd shortest mainly because a lot of people that I know in RL that have a strong temper are all short people :P
Playing around with WD’s design, have seen a lot of great drawings of her online! (atm I’m liking better the 3rd design here)

Hey guys! I hit 7k followers today (thank you all so much!) so I decided to do a masterpost that some of you requested! Personally, I sometimes struggle with staying focused when I’m studying and it can get difficult to focus on your work and avoid all types of distractions. Here are some times that I find helpful when I want to be 100% focused on my study related tasks:
make sure your study space is as minimalist as possible: if you’re like me, you tend to have lots of pens, highlighters and sticky notes when you are studying. One of my main goals for this year is definitely to become more minimalist since I end up being distracted by the huge amount of stationery around me. Try to focus on the essentials when you are studying: a piece of paper, your textbooks, one or two coloured pens and a few highlighters. Don’t get me wrong, I looove stationery and I think it can for sure be an asset in your academic life, but sometimes it can get in the way and you’ll end up overdoing your colour coding system and wasting time in your study sessions looking at the quantity of things around you.
put your phone on silent mode: this is a very predictable tip but it works! Putting your phone on silent or airplane mode is the best way to make sure you won’t fall in the temptation of replying to any messages or calls for the period of time you should be focused.
install forest: this app is one of my favorite things ever. There are plenty of other similar apps for your phone but, in my opinion, this one is the best. With forest, you can set a timer for the amount of time you want to stay focused and while doing that, you are planting a tree. It’s so motivational because you can see a little graphic garden of all the trees you planted in the app and you also earn money to buy different species of plants. It’s a great app to make sure you stay out of your phone while your working, since your tree will die if you check any social media while it’s growing.
make a realistic and functional to do list: one of the best ways to make sure you stay focused during your study session is to know exactly what you have to do. If you just start studying without having specific goals you might end up feeling overwhelmed with the amount of work and that will reduce your productivity levels. Make a specific list of everything you want to accomplish during that time and stick to it. This will help you be more efficient and focused plus it will motivate you to finish all the work you want to do!
(actually, a lil bit more now, thanks everyone !!)
