New Fandoms Are Scary, You Guys

So I haven't been around for a while, and mostly it's been due to my illustration course being a bit stressful and the band breakup and the stuff with Mikey changing the way I think about fandom. Basically I feel like it's stressing me out too much to continue being a fun release from everyday worries. So for the past few weeks I've taken a step back and concentrated on school and life for a while - and I let new fandoms in.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 8

 Day 8
In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some examples: complete a bingo, sign up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep putting off. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback or answering comments. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Not many interesting things, but things! 

RL update: I've finally finished secondary school, officially! It feels great to never have another English class. Now all I have left is my exams and then it's (hopefully) off to uni!

I will have a little bit more free time for the next few weeks, so I can be more active in fandom. At the moment I've signed up for the 

[livejournal.com profile] fangedfrerard  fest/challenge for illustrating, so I'm really excited about that and it'll give me something to focus on besides revision. My brain will fry if I don't have a distraction.

I also signed up for [community profile] imadeathing but I've yet to choose a prompt - I think I will choose embroidery or needlework as I have a stupid big Mario Mushroom I should have finished a long time ago and I would like to get it finished over Christmas in time for the deadline. I'll probably also start about five other things because I just do that.

I'm still steadily editing what I have of various half-recorded podfics. I'm really wary of the sound quality changing as I stop/start recording, so I'm waiting for a long period of time in which I can just finish recording a whole bunch in one go.

I also drew some sketches! They're not illustrations for stories or anything, but at least I'm drawing. It's great to not have to draw things for school anymore.



Drawings! )

Also, I ordered a Smashing Pumpkins shirt from eBay and I'm really excited waiting for its arrival.

I hope everyone's okay! I've glanced a few podfics in my flist and I need to get around to listening and commenting. :D
