basically, i'm sorry for disappearing off dA again ah.. thank you everyone for all the comments and watches and favourites, i greatly appreciate every single one u___u
long story short, my mom was recently put in the icu on life support due to an attack of pneumonia, and i've been spending the past few weeks going to the hospital with my family daily and returning home only late at night. on top of that she's been fighting lung cancer which spread to the brain for the past three years and it's been extremely hard on me and my family
as a result i've been finding it increasingly difficult to muster the motivation or energy to reply or comment on things ah.. i get nervous about posting new art because it means having to reply to comments and i start worrying over not being able to express my gratitude enough?? i'm the same way with art i get, because i want to type out huge comments of love and appreciation but find it so hard to muster up the energy to do so, and as a result i keep putting it off till i'm hopefully feeling better but it never happens and i feel more and more terrible for making people wait for a response and just put it off further ahh-- basically i'm really dumb, please forgive me and i love you all /m\
i'm sorry for art i owe, too, especially to =Snow-Body; i'm really sorry for keeping you waiting for so long!!;;; i'm afraid i'm in the middle of an art block brought about by the current situation, and due to my mother's health i also have to suspend my studies for a year.. i'll try to get back on track with uploading my old backlog of art and at the very least i'll have all the time in the world to draw-- but most likely only after this all comes to an end, which at the time of typing, seems far sooner than anyone would have liked.
on a closing note i'm not one to update journals often as i don't like talking about myself, but feel free to follow and talk to me on my public/art twitter, jaywalkings ! while i'm not the most active there either (but i'm working on it!) i find it easier to talk to people on there for some reason so if you ever want to talk to me or ask me anything just shoot me a tweet ;w;
since i doubt i'll be updating my journal again before then, i hope everyone has a very merry christmas with their families and friends! please cherish everyone and everything around you and take the time to let them know how much you appreciate them ー( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
