Hey there everyone. :iconsayhiplz: Wow, can you all believe it's this time of the year again? It just seems as though the year just zipped by. It seems like it was Summer just yesterday. ^^; But alas, time goes on and so must we. I hope everyone had a wonderful, fullfilling Summer as well as a great Halloween. It's not my fave holiday, but I love Halloween for the fun, the mystery, and the amazing candy you get. :D This year was no different as I saw lots of little kids as pumpkins, Minnie Mouse, and of course, Elsa from Frozen. :roll: Anyway, I loved dressing up when I was younger growing up in New York. There was no shortage of candies, parties, and just hanging out with friends. I also loved hearing spooky ghost stories, from America as well as my home country. Yeah, they were pretty spooky. :giggle: Anyway, the weather is changing, the wind is chillier, as now it's time to think about Thanksgiving and Christmas. :thanks:

Nothing really new with me. Sorry for taking to long to update. It's just been kind of down for me for a while and I just...didn't have anything uplifting to say. I'm still job-hunting, although with the Christmas season coming, I'm sure to be getting calls because of so many places wanting extra help. Man, if I would have known how hard it would be to find a decent job after college, I would have applied and filled out applications a long time before I graduated. :O_o: So if I can give a bit of advice to you college students, the one big thing I would say is.....look for a job, start filling out applications BEFORE you graduate! The moment you start your final year in college, jump on those online or paper applications and fill out as many applications as you can, update your resumes. I certainly wished I would have done that. :doh: But then again, my parents never went to college so I didn't exactly have much guidance. But yeah, start out early, believe me. :thanks:

Other than that, I've just been taking each day as it goes by. I had a wonderful time going to my adopted cousin's wedding a little before my birthday. It was so nice and romantic, despite a few hiccups. ^^; After the vows, there was delicious food and wonderful Caribbean music to dance to. :D :boogie: Other than that, I've just been doing some research on my upcoming novel, and I've come up with a new name for it. The official title will be Legacy Of The Gods: Blood Ties. I found some very interesting and dramatic stories on the Yoruba gods, but I also plan on putting my own spin on it. Should be fun and amazing. I want to thank those of you who have read the preview of it up in my gallery. I'm really pleased and kind of surprised that I got such positive feedback on it and people are rushing me to put out the first chapter! :excited: Thank you, thank you so much, those of you who cared enough to read and give me comments and feedback. The reason why I chose the Yoruba gods is because the Greek, Roman, and even the Egyptian gods have been done SO much already in Children's and Young Adult fiction, and I didn't want to be just one of those authors. I was nervous that people here wouldn't care or just reject the idea of African gods...and worse of all, ignore my story. I have a BIG problem with ignoring here on Deviant Art. :rage: Those of you who commented really made me feel better because you showed me that there is some knowledge of African gods out there and there is a big chance there could be an audience for them. :w00t!:

The only thing is that in my last post, I asked if there would be anyone who might be interested in doing some comissions or requests of my characters, and...well, no one answered or offered. No. One. At. All. :O_o: But you know what? I can't take it personally. I understand that by now, college and universities are in full swing and many members here are busy with papers, projects, and exams, even in high school. I know most members here are just swamped.'s cool. I'm sure when the time is right, I'll get offers. No biggies. :thanks:  I'll just have to cancel asking for art of my characters until a later time. So that's it with me folks. Thanks again for those of you who drop by and comment, you're truly the bigger people here. Much love, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas! :blowkiss: :iconbaibaiplz:

I'm good. School is going well. I just ace another test in Social Science. I'm doing overall well in all my classes. No Cs are in sight. I also have finally caught up with my massive backlog of art I had to upload to Da. I also got some new OCs. Have you seen them?
