As many of you might have noticed, I am the worst at replying to messages on here (and in most cases on many other sites - it's not that I hate you or anything, I just read your messages, think "I'll reply later" and then I forget for like a month) and I am so so sorry for that. I've also been pretty shit at keeping up with forums as of late, but I'll try to work on that! I've been a wee bit busy, and since I've basically been MIA for a while, I figured I'd make this post to update you all on what's going on. Bullet points, here we go.
- Studies (and mental health?): As you all know, I quit teacher training since it actually made my depression and anxiety issues worse. I've applied to other programs and I'll find out if I got in or not in July. As for my mental health, I'm on meds for both depression and anxiety right now, and it's actually helped quite a bit. Lately it hasn't gone super well (with quite a few random panic attacks surfacing for no reason at all), but still way better than it was a few months ago before my treatment. So in regards of that, I'm fine and I'm doing better, yay!
- Cosplay: When it comes to making cosplays, I haven't exactly excelled - I spent a few days working with my Junkrat cosplay a few weeks ago and I got quite far (I still need to make his arm and leg, but I don't know if I'll skip that like the lazy little person I am). Mad Moxxi will have to wait 'til winter since I can't afford finishing that cosplay right now, as I am focusing on Tia Dalma from Pirates of the Caribbean - I'm going to be part of the middle act for the Nordic Cosplay Championships (which is broadcasted on TV in the five countries participating!) and I am super hyped for that. The girl who made my Moxxi dress is also making Tia's dress for me, and I am extremely hyped to see the final result! I will make sure to upload pictures and/or videos from the performance once it's done.
I will, with 90% certainty, attend Dreamhack (next week) for one day, which will probably be Saturday, as a casual D.Va so if you're going and you happen to see me, please don't hesitate to say hi!
Oh, and if you've missed it - here is my cosplay Facebook page!
- Voice acting: Most of you may not know this, but I tend to work with VA projects from time to time. As of right now, no work of mine is uploaded (aside from a RWBY fandub that was made like two years ago and I only had a shitty $5 USB mic back then), but I'll upload links to my current projects when they are available to the public. I'm currently working with a lovely team to create a parody abridged series of Fate/Zero (made by this guy) and the first episode should be up fairly soon. I'm also working with a cartoon and a video game, but alas, I cannot tell you more about that as of right now - I'll keep you posted however so don't worry!
- Work: I guess some of the VA stuff falls under that category, but outside of that - I've gotten the super hella rad honor of becoming one of the writers for Eurogamer Sweden, and I'm stoked to begin writing for them! It's not paid, I'm afraid, but it really doesn't matter all that much for me - I get to write about video games and it'll look neat on my resumé, so I'm not complaining all too much at all.
So there you go, that's a "quick" update on what is going on in my life (if we don't count Overwatch that I've basically been playing nonstop for a week now)..!
I hope you're all doing well and I'll see you around. I love you guys super much and even though I'm the worst at staying in touch, I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to shoot me a message or a comment or whatever. Lots of hugs. <3
