Hello watchers! Yes, I am still alive, sorry for the lack of updates! It doesn't help that cosplaying and drawing/figure making are just hobbies for me and have nothing to do with my career, so all of those things are on the backburner right now as I finish up my last semester of college. I'll be graduating in May with a degree in Marine Biology and a minor in Data Science! Scary thought! I'll have to get a job, and be a real adult :O 
I've already heard back about a couple interviews, whether I accept any of them depends on whether they agree to hire me full time or not (I need the money to save up for graduate school). In my free time I also plan to volunteer with my state's department of natural resources with their inshore fisheries. I'm really interested in conservation and management of marine and coastal fishes. My favorite species is the sawfish and I'll be applying to graduate schools in Florida with the hopes of getting a chance to study the smalltooth sawfish, Pristis pectinata (it's only found in Florida in the US and is critically endangered). I'll have to take the GRE over the summer and start contacting potential advisers as I start thinking about grad school. 

Good news is, once school is out of the way, I might have time to learn how to sew! Which means, I'll be able to make even more awesome cosplays ;) First on my list is Raistlin Majere, because I think the costume part of it will be simple enough to make from scratch, then I've got a few others on my list but I'll mention those later. Spoilers ;) I am thinking about going to some conventions in the Fall that I was unable to attend last year because of school, just local ones mostly. More info on those when they get closer though.

I'll also have time to work on some more artwork stuffs. I still have my Lina Inverse figure that needs painting, and I have a few other ideas for figures made in that style that I want to try. No promises, but that's what I'll be moving towards. 

So, that's really it right now, I'll be focusing on school stuffs, but keep an out for things come June! I hope to be updating things around then :) Good luck to you all too!
