Somebody to love

Husband is currently on a business trip so this is my way of teasing him 🤣 in reality, he’s been doing wonderful by FaceTiming me and making sure that he stays safe.

The visual novel addiction is real, y’all. In all of my years playing video games, I’ve developed a fondness for visual novel games. Though I’m still an RPG gamer at heart (still trying to finish up Octopath on the Nintendo Switch), it’s been a therapeutic experience reading and interacting the storylines. My coworker and friend EB introduced me to Nightshade and goodness, it was so beautiful.

I’ve revamped my goals for this year in terms of publishing my comics. So rather than doing one – four panels, I’m hoping to aim between four to six panels. It’ll be updated every Wednesday (just for me to give some time on working with the artwork).

How has your new year treating you so far? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Namaste,

The Road Ahead

Happy New Year, lovelies! I’m back from my vacation. Hope you had a good time over the holidays. I’m a bit rusty on the drawings at the moment but hopefully I’ll be able to get better in terms of the shading and colouring.

2018 has been a tremendous year in learning crucial lessons on relationships, self awareness, understanding boundaries and self care. One of the hardest lessons I’ve learned is understanding that you can outgrow relationships. One day, you can have a network of people in a similar field. Next day, you can switch tracks and people eventually falling off the earth. Relationships go by in seasons. It’s why I do my best in remembering the good moments, even when things went sour. Nothing is perfect.

Having a smaller circle helps me focus in who’s important in my life. I no longer have the high expectations that I used to in the past. I take things with a grain of salt. If people are meant to be my friends, great. If not, time to move on. My happiness depends on how well I treat myself.

Got any stories to share about the holidays? What were your biggest lessons during 2018? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,

Diana
