<align = "center"> Oath of SilenceHello all,
Just wanted to review 2015, post my goals for 2016, and talk about some updates. 
 
2015 In Review:
2015 was interesting. I didn't get much done in terms of project goals or improving my technical skills, but I learned a lot about myself, what art means to me, and how I best utilize my craft. My draftsmanship, while not refined, is definitely on track to be something that propels my project goals forward (with some more time and patience). I also was fortunate enough to taste adult life through work, figuring out how that impacts my energy and pretty much paving the way to improving my time management skills. Overall though, 2015 felt more like a primer year; I was discovering what my limitations were and how to work around them.
Goals for 2016:
My goals are pretty straightforward for 2016, but they all are meant to build on the mental and artistic foundations of the previous year:

It's been a while since my last reflection; my work place recently changed to a longer schedule that has left me more exhausted than I care to admit. To those of you who commented on my previous journals and posts; I will try my hardest to get back to you!! 
Today, however, I'd like to focus on my thoughts regarding my first step into the world of comics. 
Since creating this account, I made a lot of art for various original series, but I feel that was a stage in my artistic career where I was both untested and inexperienced in what it meant to dedicate myself to a craft or to have a true purpose. I had lofty goals, but no skills; enthusiasm, but no sense of direction. My focus back then had been to raise awareness for my projects, without me actually working on the projects themselves. Character descriptions and maps were all I had to show for a comic (then manga) epic I had supposedly come up with. But there was no comic work behind my word

Given the events yesterday, I did not have the leisure in telling you Happy Birthday, so in my hurry, I proceeded to give you a llama badge. So now that I am here...
Happy Birthday belated or not!
I still feel bad though, so to drown my guilt...I'll be sending a note.
