Okay, I know it's late, but thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday early last week! Whether by drawing something or simply leaving a comment on my main page, every one of these actions means something to me: it means my life has been a positive influence on yours, and that alone is enough to make me smile.
With that said, look at all these lovelies!
Thank you so much to everyone who drew something for my birthday! (If I missed anyone, please let me know!)
Also, I'd like to take this time to sincerely apologize for my lack of activity on deviantART these last few months. I feel like I haven't drawn or commented as much as so many others seem to be able to. Work has been keeping me quite busy, tutoring has picked up like nobody's business

However, if all goes well, there will be much more spare time within a matter of weeks, as high school draws to a close for another year, meaning tutoring will slow to a crawl, and also meaning free time will increase! And with this free time, I'm promising to try to spend some of it drawing, and also interacting with more of the dA community. (We'll see if this promise can hold...
Once again, thank you to everyone who helped celebrate my birthday! Here's to another umpty-one years!
