Never fear! I still work with plenty of other mediums besides Second Life. Though Second Life is how I pay for a large portion of my irl, I often take the time to indulge in other arts. I enjoy pixel art, spriting, photography, and indulge in various artisan crafts as well!

As well as running my own shop, I also donate my time and talents to the development and upkeep of My Little Pony themed SIMs. Though occasionally my schedule DOES get a bit overwhelming, I try to stay active and keep everyone updated along the way! :>

::Commissions::

A notice regarding commissions;
Due to an overwhelming amount of people sending in commission slips with false information and multiple slips, commissions are somewhat-kinda but not really closed.

I have spent the last 6 months picking through what I can only guess is roughly 2,000 falsified commission slips. I have had to contact each person individually and verify their order, as well as back checking all of my archived transaction notices to see if they've actually paid. I'm somewhat nearing the end of this ungodly nightmare, and would like to inform you I have about 100 or so left to go before commissions can be worked on again. YAY!

If you're interested in a commission (be it art, or SL items), please send me a message on dA or SL and let me know so I can add you to my future contact list! Thank you! :>

So browsing through the depths of the internet, I've noticed a trend.
A lot of people talk about having OCD in the context of putting a word to a specific quirk of theirs. I'm not here to tell you you're wrong. I don't know you, and it wouldn't be fair to judge. I am here, however, to talk about the effects of OCD on my life.



I've had OCD for pretty much as long as I can remember. It started with little things, like counting to a specific number over and over in my head. I would've been fine if it stayed so simple. Over the course of my life, this mental illness has evolved to monstrous proportions. This is also my fault.

Its so much easier putting off dealing with your own problems. Especially when said problems pertain to a mental illness. Mental illness are a hard thing to deal with. Fighting them causes pain, and letting them take over causes substantially less. I've been selfish to myself, and to those around me by letting my OCD take over my life. It hurts.

My specific symptoms of the illness revolve around "contamination" and touching objects. Its gotten to the point where I can no longer leave the house unless I bathe for hours once I return home. As many of you can probably guess, this is very stressful, triggering, and time consuming, so I just choose to stay home for months on end. This is not healthy, nor is it right, but fighting this monster always seems so much more disastrous than living with this problem.

I've been to the hospital, and I've been on medication for the past few months now. It does nothing but make me numb. The illness is still there. The illness still takes over. Every day for me is not a battle to get better, but a battle not to get worse. I have so much I can offer to the world, yet I sit inside my home and rot away inside my shell, writhing with anxiety and fear at the thought of touching anything besides my computer and my bed. This is how I've lived for years.

As humans, we all bear fruit. That fruit is the culmination of our skills, talents, and who we are. We do things so that we can blossom and grow. We live so we can expand and build upon ourselves. Whenever I look into the mirror, I don't see the fruit that I once did. I see rot. The fruits I once bore, and the potential I once had has rotted away and left me no more than a hollow shell of who I once was. It pains me to look in the mirror for that reason. My reflection brings me nothing but sadness. I'm alive, but I'm dead. I live, but nothing comes of it. There is no peace from myself except for when I lay my head to rest. I loved who I was, not who I am.

I let myself suffer because its easier than facing my demons. Its easier than pushing through this disease of the mind. I regret it with every fiber of my being, but I do not intend to die this way. I am still young, and I still have many many years ahead of me. I intend to fight, and I intend to make up for the time that I have lost.



I hope those of you who also suffer from this debilitating mental illness also find the will to fight. Life is so precious, so why let your OCD live it for you?
A Secret About Myself, A Struggle with OCD
I kind of went out on a limb here, posting something I've been struggling so hard with for years.
Today I realized that if I ever want to see the light at the end of this tunnel, I have to put up a damn good fight.
Today I realized that I damn well intend to.
