Instead of spamming Miss Glitter's raffle, we can chat here :heart: 

To answer your question, I'm doing great! I started my A-levels in September, which is the equivalent to junior year in America, I think. It's quite tricky because there's a heavy workload and a lot of independent work that I wasn't used to in the beginning. I have to catch a bus at 7:50am, which takes an hour to get to the college, then arrive home at 5pm, so it's a really long and tiring day compared to last year. 

I haven't had much time for drawing, but when I do draw it never turns out how I want it too. I have a bad feeling this art block is going to be around a loooong time. Christmas break is coming up soon, but I just know that I'll get a lot of school work to deal with and I don't know how much time I'll have to draw. 

Apart from school and art, nothing major has happened to me. I made new friends at my new school that I am much happier with, and even though I have a lot of work to do at least I'm getting it done! 

Ooh! Bee and I started a book channel on Youtube, where we talk about the books we're reading and other stuff, so if you're interested I could note you with a link to it? 

Sorry for the little essay! It's just been a while! What about you, how are you? What have you been up to? :huggle:

I'm so glad to hear you're doing well! Sounds like you have a very busy schedule. I hope you are enjoying school though. I graduated from college in May and got my associates degree in Computer Arts but haven't really done much with it. I've been sick a lot this year and have had very little energy. 
I've been spending a lot of time living at my aunt's house though. I've been a nanny to Tori and it has been wonderful! I've loved being able to spend more time with her. She just turned 10 in September and she's a lot of fun.
I haven't done much writing, not like I would like too.
I know what you mean about the art block. I've had that too. Haven't done much drawing either. I've done a few things like replicating some cartoon characters in large size and I drew a scooby-doo drawing for a really close friend of mine. But haven't done much drawing with my own characters. I have a picture in my head of how I'd like them to turn out but then when I draw it's not at all what I was envisioning in my head.
I'm glad you've been able to make new friends and that they've made you happy. I made two really wonderful friends this year. The three of us are going to be flying out to Utah in January. It will be my first time going out west. I haven't really been to too many place, except for a few states on the East coast of the US. I'm so excited! I'm really looking forward to seeing the mountains out there.
Recently I've been doing a lot of Sock Monkey making. I've got a waiting list now. Plus I'm working on sock monkey gifts for some of my close family. I'm making some for a few people who didn't get one last year. They take me so long to make that I don't have enough time to make them for everyone. But everyone seems to understand and they love getting monkeys as gifts.
I'd love to have the link to your book channel! I've been trying to do a lot more reading this year. I love to read. I read one of Cathy Cassidy's books after you recommended it. It was called "Dizzy". I really loved it. I'd love to hear more about what you guys are reading.
It's been so good to hear from you! Even if we're not drawing we should still keep in touch :tighthug:

Wow, I'm sorry to hear that you've been ill! That's terrible! I hope next year will be a year of good health for you :heart: It must feel weird now that you're not at University anymore - school has taken up the majority of my life and I don't know what I'd do without it! It seems to me that whenever I'm swamped with work I want to draw and read and write, but when I have buckets of free time, I do nothing.
Did you do Nanowrimo this year? It was Bee and my first time doing it properly and we both won! I used a story I've had in my head for a while about teen spies, but now it needs a lot of editing and bulking out. I haven't got Miscrosoft Word on my computer yet, so when I do get it I'll be writing more and more. 
Because I haven't drawn in such a long time, my style is inconsistent, which I don't like. Hopefully I'll be in better drawing spirits by the time next year rolls around! 

Oooh, well I hope you have fun travelling! I've never been anywhere except London and Oxford in the UK - it sounds a bit weird that I've barely been anywhere else in my own country, but I've travelled quite a bit around Europe. :giggle: 

I've seen your sock monkeys, recently, they're so good! It's so cool to have a quirky talent like that :hug: 

The amount I've been reading this year has taken off! I got an account on this website called GoodReads, I don't know if you've heard of it, but it's basically a book recommendation website, and it's really good for finding new things. They'll give you suggestions based on the books you've already read as well. And, because of this book channel on Youtube I've been trying to read lots too. I'll note you with the link so you can see :heart:

I definitely agree that we should keep in touch when we're not drawing - I still come online basically everyday! Today is the first day of my Christmas holidays and I'm off until the 6th of January. Have you got any big Christmas plans this year, except your present making?
