You know what you should do? You should take your time so much, that the model will be finished by the blog's second birthday! That way you don't need to prepare a surprise for that birthday. In all seriousness though, please take your time. A delayed product that comes out fully finished is better than a rushed product that comes out sloppily.
((LOL, i couldn’t even stand waiting that long honestly. i like showing people the things i do (which is why i’ve been posting all the wips), and it would drive me up the wall having to wait that long to finally reveal it, even if i did actually work on it for that long
but you are right, i shouldn’t be rushing and driving myself into the ground working on it. i’ve been staying up pretty late working on it every day for the past like week and a half. even though i wanted to get it out on the day of the anniversary, i’m gonna extend my deadline to the end of the month, at the very latest. i don’t think it’ll take that long, but i should be giving myself an ample cushion of time to work on it))
