It's always really humbling to wake up on your day and have an inbox filled with people wishing you well. You're all fantastic. I really mean it.

2015 has been a really rough year for me. Between my YouTube "career" pretty much sputtering out and losing what little momentum it had left, to failing to launch Sorceress Lost for a multitude of internal and external reasons, trying and ultimately being financially unable to follow through with some other plans I haven't really talked about publicly, to just not getting as much art done as I would have liked, 2015 has felt like the karmic yang to the fantastic ying I've been experiencing the two years prior. There have been a lot of moments when I've felt like giving up.

But I'm not done yet.

This has been a year full of hard lessons and swallowing a lot of pride, and learning and reflecting on mistakes I've made, and how I need to do better in the future, whatever that may hold. The plans I was working on for 2016 seem to have fallen through. If you don't know what I'm referring to, that's because I haven't talked about it publicly, and don't intend to in case a miracle happens, but just know that it would have been a massive positive change to my life that seems to have slipped through my fingers right at the finish line. It still stings.

2015 wasn't all bad though. Hanging out with friends at conventions was fantastic, going to visit :icondear-cotton-candy: was amazing, and I've learned a lot about myself through hitting these rough patches, things I needed to learn.

I have some new ideas for 2016 that is going to approach the whole "online content creator" from a refreshed angle. What I've been doing since 2012 clearly isn't really working anymore, so its time to try something new.

Hopefully you'll all stick around for it.
