Valentine's Day is coming. It's too dangerous to go alone, take this---- a Valentine card from me!

Every year, I mail out Valentine's Day cards to the people who PM me their mailing address.

Some years there is a formal exchange on newgrounds, and I do that one too.

DO YOU WANT A VALENTINE? THEN DO THIS:

-PM me your mailing address

- It WILL be SFW. I just love you as a friend, sorry

- I'll draw a pic of something tailored to your personality

- It will not have my return address on this. If you were going to use this as a means to murder me, sorry. You'll have to murder me on your own time.

- Don't send me anything in return. I appreciate it, but it's not needed

Here's a meme I saw earlier and loved:

Here's the song I am currently obsessed with: 

 

I love all of you, even the asshats.

This is gonna be a wall of text. If you make it to the end and pass a pop quiz, you get cookies!

2018 was probably the most difficult but most productive year of my entire life. I started the year by having a heart attack (no blockage, minor) and a nervous breakdown, slightly related to the heart attack and slightly related to losing my best friend of over a decade and getting my heart broken...metaphorically....my heart broke ALL the ways in January. It figured if it was going out, why not go ALL out.

One of the biggest lessons I learned this year was that I have ZERO control over other people and what they do, I can only control me and how I react. It is better to be proactive than reactive.

When everything thing fell apart in January, so did I. I canceled all my doctor's appointments. I stopped taking my heart medication. I started drinking. I started looking for a way out.
I even started writing "the letter."

He got to watch me fall apart. He got to see me at the absolute lowest I have ever been in my entire life. I could not go with grace.
He got to see me self destruct and crash.

In the spring, my cardiologist called me himself. He begged me to come back. He knew I wasn't on my meds. I hadn't gotten my prescriptions refilled.

With the encouragement and support of many friends, something inside me lit up, and I turned everything around. I made appointments with every doctor. I got back on my meds. I stopped drinking. I began a crusade of self-improvement
And made every day of my life about how I could help others and how I could treat those around me better.

I'm still suffering from the long-term effects of my actions and mistreatment of myself.
I cannot blame him.
He broke my heart.
But I didn't handle it the way a grown woman should have.
It is possible I have removed years from my life with the damage I have done to myself.
I have acknowledged this. I have learned from this. I am moving on as a stronger person.

So. I set several goals or resolutions in January of 2018. Let's see if I got any of that shit done.

GOAL 1 WAS: *I ran my first 5k this December, and while I finished and didn't die, I didn't place either. I want a shiny medal this year, so I am going to start my training NOW. I have my eye on a couple other 5k's as well. 
DID I MAKE IT?:
Well, the heart attack set me back on this one. I did do a color run 5k in June, which was a lot of fun. I finished but didn't place. This one will be going back on my list.

GOAL 2 WAS:* I am going to graduate school to get my Masters. Depending on how much I hate that or don't hate it, I might go for my PhD. I'll be 40 by time I finish, but. Yolo. Yall can call me Dr. Seven. 
DID I MAKE IT?
Yes! Kinda--- I'm not finished, I have one year left, but I've got a 4.0 and my eyes on the prize.

GOAL 3 WAS:* I didn't think my art was really any good, but then I went to a function this month with 3 of my paintings, 5 pen and inks, and some hand painted ornaments. It all sold, fast. So I want to make more art this year as well. 
DID I MAKE IT?
Yes! I sold $300 worth of art this year. Not bad for a side hobby.
I was frontpaged 3 times and was a winner in the Pit People contest--- very exciting! These were my 3 frontpaged entries.

https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/sevenseize/inktober-day-21-inktober

https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/misschosenone/pitpeople-contest-entry

https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/misschosenone/support-newgrounds


And I got to participate in @ninjamuffin99 's Christmas Advent calendar which was beautiful. I'm so proud I got to be a part of that!

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/721061


GOAL 4 WAS* I am writing a book. I'm not a writer, so we'll see where that goes. But I am finishing it, I am getting an agent, and I am submitting it. I might be rejected. But I'm doing it. 
DID I MAKE IT?
Nope. I started the book. I wrote several chapters. But I found I was writing to get things out. And by mid-year, I was mentally in a better place. I didn't need to write more.
But maybe this means I should return to it now?

GOAL 5 WAS: * I have a lot of health issues, most of which are genetic, but honestly, for the last 3 months, I have been depressed and have not been taking care of myself AT ALL. I am taking back my health. 
DID I MAKE IT? sorta. I had to really hit rock bottom before I could get a grasp on this one. It took me awhile. It will be a goal this year too.

2019 GOALS/ RESOLUTIONS
Ok. Here are my goals for this year!
1. Keep my 4.0 in grad school
2. Lose 30 more lbs. (I went down 4 jean sizes in 2018, I'd like to go down 2 more. )
- tone up as a side goal, because I lost so much weight, I need to do some toning!
3. Place in a 5k
4. Get MORE artwork frontpaged, do more paintings.....let's say 10 paintings this year
5. Pay off most of my credit cards. I did more retail therapy than I shoulda this year

I could go through and tag every person who was here for me this year but it'd take forever....I do wanna thank 4 people in particular and I hope no one is offended, but these 4 people took the brunt of my whining this year

@cast you were angry when I was angry and sad when I was sad. You listened. You tried to help in any way you could. You had my back 100% so I have yours. If you ever need to hide a body, I got you babe.


@aviewaskewed you listened to me when I was shaking and crying and hyperventilating and absolutely losing my damn mind and you never judged me for all of the mistakes I made--and I made a lot----, you just encouraged me to take care of me.


@proteas you were level headed and gave things to me straight. You were caring and kind but made sure I always looked at situations from both sides. You didn't allow me to attack anyone. You kept me from being bias or unfair. You used logic in your care and the way you helped me.
You're basically Spock.


@FUNKbrs you listened and offered mostly illegal solutions....but the key is you listened and while you don't do the "love" thing because you don't believe in it, I do know you cared enough to humor my bitching. I appreciate you more than you know. I'm not offering to hide a body for you because I know you'll take me up on it.
But when we do go eat bbq, it's on me and YES, I am absolutely coming to one of your shows

If you made it this far, thanks for reading.
I love all of you, even the asshats.

Here's the song I am currently obsessed with:
I mean I'm pretty obsessed with Mat Kearney anyway.



And here's a pic of encouragement for anyone who's down. (I unapologetically love Emerson) Love yall.

I finished Inktober, mostly finished the movie challenge, did some reading, and didn't die during a bunch of tornadoes

I've started a November fitness challenge as well. 

I've been playing the Fallout76 Beta, which I can't post specifics about, but playing solo is pretty damn hard, so if anyone on here plays and wants to add me, send me a PM. 

Here's all my inktober! I'm not as happy with what I put out this year, because I stayed so busy with grad school, some of my entries were more sketches. I hope to improve by next year. I did get an entry frontpaged though, and that was cool. 

1414829_154127287781_inktoberrrrrrr.jpg

Over Thanksgiving break, I'll be mailing out Christmas cards! PM me your address if you want a Christmas card! 

Here's the song I am currently obsessed with, and you get to see her nipples a lot in this video, so. yeah. 

Here's my inspirational quote for the month---you aren't lost. Not everyone has a destination in mind and that's fine. 

 

1414829_154127414412_lostexplorer.jpg

 

Ok, I love you all---yes, even you.

October is here! 

This is a busy month around here, and I love it!

* If you're interested in scary movies, join the 31 days of horror challenge!!!

* If you want to read scary things, the reading challenge theme for this month is spooky books!

* We're working on a Halloween writing challenge!!!

* And my personal favorite--- INKTOBER!!!!-- Create a work of art every day in October! 

* If you're trying to lose weight like I am, we are doing SQUATOBER in the workout thread. We'd love to have you!

I'm participating in all of the above challenges because work and grad school weren't enough. I wanted to make sure I TRULY never sleep! Oh, I'm also working on a cosplay for Comicon next weekend. See? BUSY!

This is what I wait for all year. I live for autumn and my soul is 98% Halloween. 

This picture sums up my feelings better than I can :

1414829_153827484323_youknowfallshit.jpg

If you've given me your address fairly recently, I'll be sending you a Halloween card this week! Each Halloween card comes adorned with beautiful Halloween stickers from Target. 

 

1414829_153827557543_fallshit1.jpg

If your name isn't on this list, it simply means I misplaced your address, IT DOES NOT MEAN I DON'T LOVE YOU OK DON'T BE DRAMATIC---but do PM me with a mailing address if you'd like to be added to my mailing list. 

My next mailing will be Christmas cards!

Remember, you don't have to give a real name and anything I send is SFW etc so no one gets in any trouble.

Also, I've been sending cookies to malachy, aviewaskewed, proteas, skunkyfluffy, funkbrs, and zj for years now---they all still alive. 

These people have cards coming: @aviewaskewed  @malachy   @proteas   @skunkyfluffy  @FUNKbrs  @ZJ  @DamnedbyFate   @CyberDevil   @Deluca2400  @Adr3-N   @chris-the-stick2  @RealFaction  @billybobthwarten  @The-Great-One  @TomFulp  (sending to NG HQ)    @NekoMika   @augustana

@cast  if you should come by, I was not sure which address was still current darlin. HMU  and I'll hook you up with some candy because I didn't get your card out in time. 

Ok, here's the song I'm currently obsessed with: 

 

aaaaaaaaaaaaaand here's your inspirational pic of the month:

So I do a lot of mailings. I send out goodies at Christmas. I send out cards for Valentines Day. I send out art. 

The only bad thing is, once I mail things to you guys, I lose your addresses, because they're in PMs, and I frequently have to delete PMs because my box is always full. 

Here are the people I currently have addresses for: 

@ZJ , @aviewaskewed , @malachy , @skunkyfluffy , @proteas , @FUNKbrs , @cast  

Everyone else, I was a crappy friend and I lost yours.  :-(  @NekoMika  @cyberdevil  @Quisty  @FoAngel @RealFaction

 

Please PM me your mailing address if you'd like to be added to my address book! You don't have to give me your real name. And I won't murder you. I've been sending things to avie/mal/proteas/skunky for years and they have not yet been murdered. 

.............................

ok here are some words of wisdom for your day/night:

and here's the current song I'm obsessed with: 

.................................

Ok. My blood sugar is low. I haven't eaten in 9 hours. I'd better go do that.

 

I love you all, even the ass hats.

 

Hit your girl up if you need her.

for a cake topper.....

$80.00 later, I have a new set of watercolors,  a new set of oil colors, and a new set of acrylic colors.

(and a cake topper)

So I'm gonna get some art done this week if it kills me.

Anyone live in the Galveston area? I've got business there in September. Tell me good places to eat. 

Man, I'm tired.....ok, a picture here : 

1414829_153110343843_quoteyaaaay.jpg

and this is the guy I'm currently obsessed with on youtube--- often when I watch these easter egg videos, I'm like "I knew all this crap already."

Every video he makes, at least half of it is new to me. 

Alright, I'm taking a bubble bath now.

This week was insanely busy, and today specifically was crazy. Between "May the 4th be with you", preparations for Cinco De Mayo, and preparations for Free Comic Book Day---I'm tired. I had plans to do something for Pico Day, which is tomorrow, but grad school got the best of me. That said, I finished the semester with a 4.0 and now have a few weeks before diving in for summer classes. Late Pico Day project? I am way behind on art commissions and those of you I promised to mail art to, I didn't forget you. The envelopes are right here. 

There's a TON of cool stuff going on, on newgrounds at the moment, aside from the wicked new user page redesign and of course Pico Day. 

 

******First, the current artist I am obsessed with: @DrewJohnson   https://drewjohnson.newgrounds.com/art

    This is his Carrie Fisher, which is currently on the front page, but OMG his pencil drawings. Pencil is one of my favorite mediums, and I'd like to get back to it. I don't have much pencil work posted here, but I have lots of it in my office. I love making it, I love looking at it, and Drew is the master of the pencil. 

1414829_152548347822_drewjohnson_carrie-fisher.jpg

******Next, the 5th annual Art-Inspired Music Contest   https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1431735

which is being headed up by tons of amazing people, including the talented @RealFaction and @ADR3-N 

******  And @AliceMako has another synthwave album out, which I dunno how she does it, as everything she releases just gets better and better and better!   https://alicemako.newgrounds.com/ 

 

......................

 

and last but not least

 

I have quite a few friends----on here----YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE------who have been a bit down lately. 

They feel like their lives aren't really going anywhere, and that because they are in their 30s, it's too late to get anywhere. 

Guys, things are just getting started. So many people don't decide what they want to do until their 30s. So many people don't find that clarity until their 40s.

Don't give up. You are not a failure. 

Someone will always have more than you. 

You don't need the general public's approval to be happy. Just be happy. I know at 34, I am nowhere near finished with my plans. Maybe I'll build my own house. Maybe I'll move. Maybe I'll switch jobs. 

I'm going to do what I need to, in order to be happy.  I LOVE YOU ALL.

I am exhausted and in bed taking selfies with @cast and @FUNKbrs.....Welll not in bed with them but....you get what I'm saying...

I don't really have $500.00

Here's our selfies and a song I currently like. 

Love all yall.

 I only do art to make myself feel better, it's my hobby. The only catch is, I make a piece of art, and I feel better.......................for a few hours. Then whatever was bothering me comes back and I have to make MORE art. I am stuck in a continuous cycle of  :    be upset -----> make art------> be happy!!! -------> uh oh, remember all of the huge life-changing mistakes you've made you f*ck up? Better make more art.   ....  Rinse and repeat. 

It's kinda like the Winchester House, if you have ever read that story...... https://www.countryliving.com/life/travel/a45210/winchester-mystery-house/

I can't stop making art. So My office is full of it. It's everywhere. I'd like to just throw it away, but my family and friends won't let me. So who wants it?  I'll send you whatever piece you want for free. You just PM me your address. I'll send you the art. Some pieces are already taken but look through my art on my user page. I'll be happy to get rid of it. This pic is just some of the crap littering my office at the moment. (Please ignore my horribly messy floor.)

*In accepting art from me, you acknowledge that the art is probably cursed, as I am. 

1414829_152287630241_arrrrt.jpg

Also back on Valentines Day, I shared a video I promised would get you laid, as it was currently the most romantic song that has existed. 

That song has been replaced with this one. 

I'm gonna ask my 12th husband if this can be our wedding song.............

 

Oh, and then this pic................

I had a lot of fun being @TomFulp for a day. This pic represents my feelings as April Fools Day ended, and I had to face the harsh reality that I was just SevenSeize once again.
