1. Bittersweet chapters: My Twitter now keeps regular updates of how I'm doing.. "Taeshi" is the name! Just look that up if you're curious.


This is pasted from the latest comic page.. but anyway.. Souppy has been working like a demon to get my comic all known and stuff and I guess he wants your help ;___;  I feel kind of embarrassed, but yeah..

It would help if I got 3 or 4 reviews on the BCB Webcomic List page. It would be great if anybody could review me on it, good or bad - you need to sign up I think but it’s not very hard to do. It might help get the ranking up if you click the link through this page, too!

Additionally, less important but equally cool would be if I got one or two reviews on the BCB Webcomicz page. It’s not as important as TWCL (above), but I plan on trying them out for ads and if someone other than me describes what the comic is about, it probably will seem more appealing!

Too much work? Both of those require typing, but these don’t - try voting for BCB on Top Webcomics, voting for it on Webcomicz (look under actions on the right sidebar), or joining Webcomicz as a user and faving it. These aren’t super great ways of promoting the comic but they help - kind of like “free” banner display, in Top Webcomics’ case, for instance. But the reviews would be lovely!

I keep wondering if I will make drawing incentives in future, but to be honest consistently updating the comic is way more in my priority list than anything.. so yeah ;___;  I will try to be consistent!  Even if I'm getting trained to be a manager at Subway, aaaaaaaaaaaa needing all the backlog I can geeeet.

ANYWAY YEAH SOUPPY WROTE ALL THAT ;___;  i don't wanna be obnoxious, but I would seriously appreciate any of your help guys oh my god

aaaa

I just realised that I don't often get commissions and I'm in a state of time where I'm really not all too stressed.  I feel kind of bad I haven't really bothered starting the Sonic comic I want to do, so I'll put myself into drawing other things via commissions.

I've edited the prices a bit considering I colour in different ways so here is the link!

So umm happy holidays to everyone!  I know it's a bit late and I'm inactive as hell, but I hope 2010 will be full of cool shit and stuff, I got a whole load of art supplies and I ain't afraid to use them >:O

You know that Sonic series idea I mentioned all the way back in March?  I'm gonna try and do that this year using my new watercolours.  Sonic is freaken bright and colourful as hell, so what better way to practice? It'll be my practice guinea-pig, so whoop! Maybe I'll do a comic each week while I fulltime it on Bittersweet.

I might consider doing some ace watercolour bittersweet images, like there's no real drawings where they're just hanging out in some location and I should do that.. I wanna try and drill backgrounds into my brain! Another New Years resolution I have, aaaa

There's this president-centered short comic series I wanna do for kicks as well, don't know when it will come up and how, but it's in the back of my head and I think it'll be pretty ace.  Vague as hell to mention it, but yeah maybe if I have the time that will show up in 2010.

Bittersweet will still continue, there's quite a buncha arcs before it ends, and it's pushed further considering the mon-wed-fri schedule, but I assure you the next few chapters are pretty ace.  Some characters will be doing some crazyass things.

.. that aren't drugs.  I assure you. *Hit*

Anyway, I'm gonna be kickin' it in San Francisco until the 4th of January.. so three days!  Any Franciscofags around that wanna pal around should totally note me and stuff.  Xetch will be a requirement >:O"  hit me up biaaatch

2009 has been a bit of a rollercoaster, I really wanna make myself a better, more independent person for 2010.. and try and be happy. Hopefully I'll be successful, but yeah ;.;  Any desires or wishes you guys have? Let's all fight together to reach our goals!!!!

CORNYSHITMAN

OH BY THE WAY as of today, Souppy and I have been dating for seven years!  Huge landmark, eh?  SEND US PRESENTS of the "die for our ship" cat-couple fanart variety  ;D  *Kicked in the face*

or hey dog couple fanart variety, whatever you prefer. (iamasecretpaulorachelfan)

So my plane will be taking off to New Jersey on Wednesday.. and funny enough, I'm arriving Wednesday night because we'll be going back in tiiiiime

to another world

So here's the deal.. I'm gonna be going to three different areas and if you're in the proximity and want to meet and hang out, it's your chance now!  I don't think I'll be anywhere near America after this for a few years.. since money-wise, we'll be freaken broke or some shit.  So anyway..

We'll be in New Jersey the majority of the trip, I'm gonna be hanging out with :iconblinkanjell01: and :iconevang-y: hopefully.. you guys contact me! It's difficult to know what's going on since I'm gonna be lacking in the laptop for a time.. so chat with me via e-mail or here.

From the 7th to the 15th of December I'm going to be in Florida. I'm pretty sure it's Orlando.. so if any floridafags wanna meet up and do stuff, I guess here's your chance or something.  I like meeting new people ;.;  sooooo

From the 1st of January until the 4th I'm going to be in San Francisco.  This means I absolutely HAVE TO FREAKEN SEE YOU XETCH/EMMA we need to talk and hang and shit and if your parents want to show us around some more here's some extra days available pyooo

That's really it!  Otherwise we'll be in New Jersey.. Bittersweet will still be consistently updating, but i don't know about anywhere else.  I'll try to keep active on Twitter depending on if my iphone will get phone or not.  If I don't update any time soon, I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas, happy new year, happy thanksgiving, or any other silly crazy religious holiday you believe in.  JUST HAVE A HAPPY DAY, RATHER.

The time has come for the old site to die...


.. and the new relaunch of the site to be born!!!!

New Bittersweet Candy Bowl site + chapter is coming November 2nd!  It has been months, but now it's going to be pretty active since there'll be a consistent update schedule.  

Souppy has been working on the new site for a long time when he shoulda been studying so hopefully all his hard work pays off!!! Here is a list of what to expect on Monday:

- Page 1 of "Wonderland", Chapter 50 (Which is actually Chapter 71, we've gone through the archives and picked out which ones were real chapters and which were intermissions/fan comics.. and the chapters have gone down to fifty!  How weird is that)
- A whole new six page first chapter (Come on, "Unfulfilled Day" is complete rubbish.  It's cute as a one-off comic that summarises the previous relationships of the Bittersweet cast, but as a chapter that should be attracting people, it leaves a lot to be desired.  So I made a proper-panelled six page comic that will be replacing Unfulfilled Day.  So on Monday, you'll be treated to a seven-page update.  I hope that isn't too bad!)
- Every chapter rescanned and tidied up : I have actually rescanned every since page I have in my possession (the oldest chapters have disappeared) and Souppy has done some weird clean up thing so that the lines disappear and that it doesn't look all faded and pencilley.  Here's a comparison!




- A comments system so you can post on each page directly on the site!   That way, for those who don't really want to comment through DA but still want to leave feedback will have no excuse!  I kind of want to separate the site from DA, it's been kind of odd working around it and needing people to get accounts on a site they might not want to register in just for a silly cat comic.
- A new character page with new images and descriptions!!   The icons that were on the old site were drawn in MSPaint in like ten minutes, and I never actually fixed them ever since.. so there are new icons for the more minor characters and the main characters are all dolled up.
- A new introduction "comic" with story guide!   For new people who don't want to read like 400 pages of cats.
- A revamped fanart gallery!   It's more compact and nicer now.  That reminds me, if you don't see your fanart on the site, please tell me!  I haven't been able to really keep track ever since I became really active on DA.  I don't know these things!
- New links, and other miscellaneous stuff   blah blah blaaah

And most importantly

A THREE DAY A WEEK UPDATING SCHEDULE. Beginning on the 2nd of November, you will get a new page Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. Die-hard fans who want to wait until the whole chapter is published before reading can subscribe to a special newsfeed for it. (I'm looking at you, Oddguy)

So look for more information on the 2nd when the site is posted up there for you to look at!

THAT IS ALL.

This question will probably receive a hell of a lot of "no, I don't live in Australia"s so it's a stab in the dark, really.

Souppy and I are attending both days of Animania on the 5th and 6th of September, so that should be fun. I just wonder if there's anyone that watches me that's going, we could meet and I guess draw you junk, who knows. I really wanna meet that mysterious Naruto girl that kept hugging me over and over :-[ she was fascinating.

I'm going as Alicia from Valkyria Chronicles, whoop!

Obviously no panel I'm too lame to have those.

Basically, I got an apartment with Souppy now.  And we needed to get new internet so that's why I disappeared again. My normal visitings were limited, as DA on iPhone blows chunks.

ANYWAY still gotta do request for :iconmokomel:, :iconsoftmonkeychains:,  and :iconpaul-kim:, haven't forgotten those.  I've been focusing on the Bittersweet pages, I have 47 pages to plow through, four chapters to be precise.

Bittersweet will remain on hiatus until the site is relaunched.. Souppy and I (Mainly Souppy as he is master website maker) are gonna work on making it look prettier and changing/ridding of certain things. So yeah.. look forward to that.

.. though I'm sure many of you won't look forward to the fact that when Bittersweet returns, it will return as a Monday-Wednesday-Friday comic.

welp!!!!!

I just think months and months of inactivity is far more frustrating to people than the story slowly and consistently being updated. The majority said Mon-Wed-Fri schedule in the poll I made.. so I'm gonna be doing that when Bittersweet returns.

I'll still be posting in batches on DA if you're stubborn, though!!!


In other news here's a panel from page one that I posted on Twitter, I'm sure many of you missed it:

Rucychan in Wundaland durp.

frilly dress oh god

(No colouring is not permanent, it's for one chapter.. if I were to do that expect Bittersweet to return in like 2015 I'm such a jerk)

Sorry, went into a little breakdown there.

I'll try to post some stuff, even if it's scribbly comics.  Though I know I  have things to do..

Request for :iconmokomel:, :iconsoftmonkeychains:,  and :iconpaul-kim:, haven't forgotten those.  They will be done.

Bittersweet's been sketched out three chapters and I'm currently inking.. so expect some heavy drama, whoaahahahhh

yeah.

Also I think the critique system is absolute bullshit and you should not separate a critique from a comment like it's some sort of mutant freak.  I always critique when I make comments.. and I am not changing that. The star-system is bullshit, too.  JUST THROWING THAT OUT THERE.

THROWING SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT, SO IMPORTANT THAT IT WILL BE IN ALL CAPS: BECAUSE I FIND THE CRITIQUE SYSTEM SUCH BULLSHIT, I WILL NEVER ENABLE IT EVER.  THAT DOESN'T MEAN I DON'T WANT CRITIQUE.  CRITIQUE ME TO DEATH, DESTROY MY WORK, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY MONEY OR FEEL WEIRD ABOUT CRITIQUING.  This all just implies that comments should be one-word crap and critique elevated in a dumb way. That's dumb.

that is all

SO BASICALLY

I know I still gotta draw that random request for Evarion, and I really should get to doing that, but I first want to just write down my plans for the next month or so..

April is going to be delightful blue hedgehog month.  For I am going to do a really short Sonic-related series that will chronicle his escapades in the classic games ":-["  I might either colour them in copics or colour them digitally, but I'm really pumped about that because I'm gonna replay all the old games to gather up delicious delicious material..

Already got some ideas cooking.. I'll be drawing comics for each Act from Sonic 1 all the way up to Sonic & Knuckles.. and if I'm devoted enough I might even cover Sonic CD (though I doubt it'll happen)

I've been wanting to tribute the times when Sonic was actually GOOD for a while.

As for Bittersweet, I'm gonna make it a hardcore mission to get Chapters 70 and 71 finished before April.  I've already inked five pages out of eleven.. and Chapter 71 is an incredibly short two or three pages.  It'll be kind of.. an ending.

yeah

ANYWAY stay tuned for dat

After I got Bittersweet settled down, I'm gonna kick back with Souppy and draw all the requests he wants for making the book that nobody will buy.  That will mean a seven (?) page introduction comic, and a completely redoing of Confrontation.

SO MUCH TO DO


so little time

This is more for Souppy's benefit than my own..

But Soaringrabbit.com is a site Souppy has owned since 2004.  And it has gone through three redoes.. this new revision is probably the coolest one and just tonight he's finished it!

So I implore you all to check it out!:  www.soaringrabbit.com

There's a lot of crap drawn by me to make his site more pretty so if you like seeing my junk, there's tons of it scattered around the page XD  Look at the teeny weeny Lucy icon for the Bittersweet page!  And the Shadow-kun, kusu kusu ^__^

If you see any flaws, don't be shy to say!  I am going to a bed now, but yeah.  I am proud of my Souppy ;.;

Chapter 70 will be ready in 2011.

:iconblinkanjell01: did a guest comic that is delightful ;.;  

I have posted it on the website because she deserves some attention!  Check out her mothereffen cover.

Also this helps because it makes the site look more active lollllllllllllll

LOOK AT THE WEBSITE, GUYS.

It is a story about Tess, for those that want to see more in depth stuff about her.. I mean I think I covered the story well enough in the comic itself, but this is on Tess' perspective XD  Twelve freaken pages with a cover!

Enjoy!

So I spent the whole morning before going to work reorganising all my old drawings.  Souppy's tidying it up, but I did the major bulk XD  And for most of the folders I made I drew a little doodle along with a label.

So my god imagine all I had to draw and write for the bloody Bittersweet chapters pile

Look at dis:

Regular Chapters:


Intermissions/Miscellaneous:


Some of the summary drawings suck, but others I'm pretty happy with, durp.  You'll also notice there are name-changes.. this hasn't been finalised at the website, but some old chapters had really terrible names so they'll be renamed for the book.

You'll notice about three comics in that pile are NEVER BEFORE SEEN.  Also there was an original Stream Flashback that I canned and redid to be the Stream Flashback you all known.. renamed to "Troubled Waters."

hhohohohooo

god organising for a book is going to be so tough

ffffffff now I know how Souppy feels.

Fanart Section reupdated. Also comic suggestions!

To do!


1. Brosssssssstime for :iconevang-y: (I have the idea ":(")
2. Chapter 68 (Sketched out four pages out of god knows what)


www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/f…;<-- More drawings in the fanart section!

It's been a long time since I've updated the page so I got all the fanart I could find and placed it there ;.; (And Souppy tidied it up because I am a failure at website)

If some of you see that your fanart isn't there, or if you just plain don't want a particular fanart on the site, please please tell me!  Also if there are any name errors and stuff.  I just want to have the section pristine archiving everything, but it's your choice if you truly want your stuff there.

Yessureebob!

In other news, Souppy is getting the Bittersweet book in motion and he's asked me what kind of extra comics I'd like to put into it since the book is gonna be chock-full of new content.  I'm just wondering if you guys have any ideas on what you'd want.   By this I mean comic ideas.. arcs, little tales.  Something involving a character you like.  

One important thing to point out, though..

1.  The first book will ONLY chronicle Eighth Grade.  That means no Abbey, no Tess, no McCain, no Final Fantasy Cat, no High School characters.  So keep in mind with suggestions that it can't be "Tess and David go on a wacky adventure."  Tess is not meant to "exist" yet.

I'll probably come up with stuff of my own, but if you have a hilarious or really good idea I can draw, now is the time to suggest!

Now here's a meme stolen from :icontakunichan:

♥FOUR MOVIES YOU´LL WATCH OVER AND OVER:  
I actually can't really answer this one, but as a kid I watched so many movies over and over so I'll choose the movies based on the me back then.. so it'll all be really old crap.  I don't rewatch movies anymore.
1. The Sonic Anime movie ":-["
2. The Incredibles
3. The first Pokemon movie "XD;"
4. The Dark Knight as a recent one?

♥FOUR PLACES I´VE LIVED:
1. Riobamba, Ecuador.  (Where I was born)
2. Chicago.  (During a time as a kid)
3. New Jersey.  (Throughout my teenagehood)
4. Sydney!  (Now!)

♥FOUR CURRENT FAVORITE VIDEOS (LINKS):
Looking at my youtube faves...
1. au.youtube.com/watch?v=fRB2wFh… is beautiful world~~~
2. au.youtube.com/watch?v=susZ2ce… have not wanted to high-five a person so hard.. I don't know too much about him, but Souppy showed this to me and I was just mesmerised.
3. au.youtube.com/watch?v=B-Wd-Q3… exploitable~~~  I laughed pretty hard at how convincing it is XD
4. au.youtube.com/watch?v=jzFtVGk… recently gotten obsessed with Grandia I again.. and this video contains spoilers of the final battle, but the guy in this freaken beats the monster in ONE HIT.  It is amaziiiing.  It's sped up with some Ragnarok song, but just look at how well-played it was.. plus the music is pretty well-correlated to the video.

♥TV PROGRAMS I WATCH:
1. Biggest Loser (My one guilty pleasure, it started up again for Australia and it's kind of boring right now.)
2. The US Office.. I watched most of the UK Office already.. as much as I could stomach "XD;"  Not that the UK Office is bad.. it's just so.. ngghghghghh embarrassing.
3. .. Umm.. I don't really watch much television anymore.. I think that's it.  The Daily Show back when I used to be in America?
4.  .. durpppp.. Colbert Report?  Seriously, I'm like not a television-watcher anymore.

♥FOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS OF ALL THE TIME:
1. Lupin the thiiiiiiiiird~
2. Red from Pokemon Adventures!  Ash got nothin' on him, he's so delightfully smug, yayyyy~
3. I have a huge thing for Kagura from Azumanga Daioh ;.;  I cannot describe why, I just thought she was one of the funnier ones.. her energy, the way she sort of was the more realistic one.  She was the kind of person I'd imagine many other people to be and I find that kind of cool.
4.   .. Umm.  I know I'll get slayed for this, but I really really really like Kittan ":-["  From Gurren Lagann.  I like him more than Kamina. *Hit*

♥FOUR PLACES I´VE BEEN:
1. Melbourne, Australia.
2. San Francisco, California.
3. Quito, Ecuador.
4. Auckland, New Zealand!

♥FOUR PEOPLE WHO REGULARLY SEND ME EMAILS:
1. My father.
2. One of my stepfather's relatives.. she freaken spams me with chain letters.
3. My boss because he sends us the pay slip via e-mail now.
4.  .. Democrats Abroad.  They're pissing me off now, I already voted for your stinkin' Obama ";__;"  

♥FOUR OF MY FAVORITE DISHES:
1. Spaghetti Bolognese.
2. Tuna mixed with mashed potatoes and rice ":-["  My all-time fave that I can't really do now, bawwww.
3.  Lentil soup.
4. .. Chicken nuggets from McDonalds.. but mainly Chicken Selects/McDippers ":-["

♥FOUR PLACES I WISH I WERE RIGHT NOW:
1. New Jersey.
2. California as I've met some cool people there.. Sammy also lives there now, but I'm mainly thinking about :iconxetch:
3. I remember wanting to be in England back when Summer of Sonic was going on.  I think it's a bit of a funny idea, but it'd just be an interesting experience.  I wish I could attend it once if they're ever doing it.  (I guess this space can go for any proper con.. like a Comic Con.  I'd love to attend that)
4. Maybe Japan?  It'd be nice to visit..

♥FOUR INSANE THINGS I´D LIKE TO DO:
1.  Have a baby?  Obviously I'm not gonna act upon it now because I'm old enough ;.;
2. Go on an aimless road trip where we just don't have a set plan so it's like a total adventure.
3. Go all around the US..
4. Pursue art completely ;.;

♥FOUR SONGS I LIKE:
1.  El Arbol - LODV  (I love like a kabillion songs from this band, though.. there's also Aquella Ingrata, Rosas, Muneca de Trapo, El Libro, 20 de Enero, Adios, El Tiempo.. so freaken many.)
2.  Something About Us - Daft Punk (I feel like a faggot for liking this really softy song, but I just like romantic soft junk I always have nghghggh ;.;  I love this song)
3.  Inside and Out - Feist (This feels familiar to the ten things meme.. I also like Let it Die, My Moon my Man, Now at Last, The Limit to your Love, 1234, nnghghgghh so many..)
4.  Powerful - Skye Edwards.

♥FOUR REASONS TO KEEP ON LIVING:
1.  It would really upset my family and Souppy if I'm to go.
2.  I still want to complete some things.. get some ideas out and at least have a sense of accomplishment under my belt.
3. I want to be a mother.
4. .. I don't really know.  I guess life is so unpredictable and I really want to enjoy it the best I can?  

♥FOUR THINGS I´LL NEVER DO:
1. Smoke.
2. Get a tattoo.
3. Get piercings on anywhere that aren't my ears.
4. Colour my hair an unrealistic colour like blue or green or etc.

♥FOUR UNFORGETTABLE DATES:
All of my dates were with Souppy XD  He's the only real life boyfriend I've really had.
1.   When we saw "In the Mix" on Thanksgiving.  It was our first ever date ever.. in like 2005.  I think it's just so low-key that it's awesome.
2.  When we went to Luna Park.. I loved the ferris wheel ride with him.  It was after we were at Manly and were dropped off in the city and we just.. walked all the way to Luna Park.  It took a long time to get there and we crossed the Sydney bridge and stuff.
3. When we went out to the Outback Steakhouse.  We've gone there multiple times, but it just feels nice being with him.
4. *Shrugs*  I kind of just enjoy any time I'm with him.  We're together so much that it's hard to label something as a date.

♥FOUR FAVORITE DRINKS:
1. Lemonade.  Especially raspberry lemonade.
2. Orange Fanta.
3.  85% Sprite, 15% coke ":-{"  Just a bit.. I notice that's how much I put in.
4. Lemon iced tea.

♥FOUR WISHES:
1. Pleaseeeee become better, world ;.; No wars or unemployment or just the really terrible stuff that's going on.  
2. Shut down freaken chinese fur trade, I hate that hate that hate thaaaat, skinning the freaken animals alive.. or maybe just outlaw fur in general. It's a terrible thing and I hate you if you wear it.  You don't really know where it freaken came from.  All for freaken fashion.
3. I guess be a successful comic artist.. or at least successful enough that I can hold a good enough income and be able to raise children with it ":-["  Alongside Souppy.
4.  For my parents to be peaceful and content.. like no debts, no drama.. I want them happy.  Especially my father.

♥FOUR THINGS I´LL DO BEFORE I DIE:
1. Have children ;.;
2. . I want to complete Bittersweet and actually feel HAPPY about making it.. like not just have it as that dumb experimental comic I did.  I've hyped it up to be just that, but now I realised I want to make it something better.. or at least something I can be proud of.  Rather than just pin excuses and be all "Oh well it was just a dumb exercise comic in the first place nghghgh"
3. Umm.  Get passionate enough to start another long-running good comic?
4. I feel bad I feel too unconfident in my own ability to make a list of things I'm sure I'll do.

♥I HOPE THIS YEAR (2009) I CAN:
1. Improve in my art skills.
2. Find out what I want to bloody do.. if I want to continue teaching or start something else.
3. Get Bittersweet printed since Souppy is really pining on wanting that.
4. Visit my family again.

♥FOUR TRAUMAS IN MY LIFE:
1. Geez, this kind of opportunity to yap about it keeps coming up, I've really felt awkward about it as I kind of hate coming off as "wahh wahh bad things happened to me, wahhhh" but what the hell, basically my older cousin did some terribly naughty things to me when I was five.  Like.. you know.. yeah, you get the point.  This happened for quite a long time and I eventually told my father about it and it was sorted from there.  I'll probably be kicking myself for a while after I post this because it just feels so.. nnghgghghhh what other reason should I be saying this other than attention?  I hate feeling so guilty.  It should be something I should be really.. walking on eggshells about, but lately I've just been so free with freaken talking about it and I don't want that to be glamourising.  I've hinted at it in the past, and just whatever.  It happened.  It sucked.  I guess I moved on?  Or at least I want to tell myself I did.  It can't be affecting me now, I'd hooope..
2.  .. I don't think anything else happened to me.  "Trauma" is such a rough word and I don't want to seem like my past was the toughest past eveeeer because I know others have had it worse.  I guess my dad once beat me up when I was about six because he was in such a frenzy about my mother being in America (We were separated from her for three years) and us being in Ecuador and they were divorcing and he took it out on me, but that only happened once and my father is a wonderful person, he was just crazy that one time.  He has long since regretted it and he would never do such a thing again.  I don't hold it against him.
3.  Umm.
4.  Yeah.  I think whatever trauma since then I've done to myself.  I am the one that upsets myself and gets depressed, I think I'm the person primarily responsible for making myself how I am now, I guess.  Always so paranoid and self-conscious and frightened and fff

♥FOUR THINGS I´LL SAY TO THE ONE WHO SENT ME THIS:
1. TakuniChan, how dare you indirectly send me this.
2.  I mean I just saw it on your journal and I chose to take it because I was bored.
3.  Seriously, TakuniChan, not cool.
4.   Not cool at all.

♥I CRY WHEN:
1. I watch a depressing movie.
2.  I'm really really angry.. just the frustration of it all brings me to tears.
3.  I think of certain memories in the past.. like some things are so dumb to upset me, but they do.  I think too much about things.
4.  I'm feeling helpless, freaking out.. just plain depressing myself ":-["

♥FOUR WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU:
1. Paranoid.
2.  Self-conscious.
3.  Timid.
4.  .. I think I can be funny, though ":-["  Or a romantic.
