Why am I so scared to draw...I really want to draw, but I don't want to as while I did draw during my childhood, and even submitted some art into some magazines according to my parents that were apparently published in said magazines (Dora the Explorer to be specific, and yeah, this is pre-school me).
During Primary School, I enjoyed drawing, while during my Secondary School years, I didn't really care for it. And if I did, I would of only done it during my Junior Cert. The art teacher during my Junior Cert years was a very kindhearted, elderly woman that my Sister had back when she was in Secondary School. However, during the leaving cert, the teacher we had was...not so nice, she was basically a bossy, rude, ableist (I asuume, from an interaction I had with her) woman. (For context, the previous one retired). So if I had done Art, I would of immediately quit it just like I did Chemistry & French back in Secondary School (although, when it comes to French, I just found it hard in general and I did like my French teacher in general).
Afterwards, there were a few times where I was interested in it, and got art supplies, and even got a Wacom digital art pad back in 2021, however, I never did anything with it (although, I do blame currency exchange fluctuation for that one).
I really want to draw, and wish I could of remembered my drawing skills from my childhood, however, I can't, and I know I will suck. I want to try and draw, at least draw Simpsons characters first.
Does anyone ever have these feelings of been afraid to draw? I know there are artists on this site, and from what I've seen from some of them, THEY ARE AMAZING, with one example I can think of been @MaryWrite.
Of course, AI is another reason why I'm scared to draw too, and it getting stolen from what DeviantART has shown me through the years
Part of me is wandering if I should re-review Simpsons episodes in the way I am watching the newer ones? And if I do eventually do it, if I should write those opinions on a separate thread or put them on the individual already established episode threads
I wander if I have too much on my plate sometimes...or if I go overboard with my planning. From the rest of the month & in December, I plan to:
- Watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinochio, Fantasia & Bambi, along with rewatching Dumbo for my Disney Rate & Review project
- Plan to catch up on the 4 Seasons of Big City Greens
- Finish Season 11 of Family Guy
- Complete Batch #1 of South Park
- Catch up with all of Hilda (and its 3rd Season) alongside all of The Dragon Prince
- Finish One Piece
- Watch Wednesday
- Watch Clueless & Mean Girls
- Watch The Marvels if it does arrive digitally before the end of the year
- Watch all the 80s & 2000s Strawberry Shortcake shows/specials/movies
- Keep up with the ongoing series I'm watching
- Play Super Mario RPG when it releases on November 17th
- Check out Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections when it releases on November 17th
- Check out the Game Awards (although I'll probably watch a reaction VOD to it, the Game Awards I have watched live are usually snooze fests for me)
- Watch Justice League Season 1 along with Batman: TAS & Young Justice when they arrive on Netflix (as who knows how long they'll be there fore, and the DC animated shows are shows I'd rather watch legally if possible)
- Maybe watch Close Enough if that show will be disappearing from Netflix by the end of the year along with Final Space (which I thankfully binge watched last year)
- Along with doing my course and other personal real life stuff that will have me busy
While trying to not get into fanfic planning mode cause that does keep me from doing other stuff I want to do, even if that means I have to forget the fanfic I started a few months back on A03 (which I have unfortunately already forgotten what I had planned for it).
also...I just remembered there's an Invincible game releasing this month that I want to check out (unless its already released), and a bunch of games I plan to get on Black Friday. Along with watching Thanksgiving themed content on Thanksgiving (if I have time) and watching Christmas themed content during December.
Even thou I did have cop Maggie as my pfp there, I was growing unsatisfied with it so I decided to remove it, might leave my pfp like this for a week, feel like I've been changing it a LOT since Halloween
Was hoping to start my Disney Movie reviews this weekend, but I'll leave it till next weekend as I don't have the right equipment yet (and my equipment, I meant a writing pad, as I feel like I want to write down my notes instead of typing them).
I'm honestly struggling with a new Avatar idea, I did change it from Vaggie to Leafeon as Halloween was over, but I have since changed it to Sid Chang as the Leafeon pfp I had was bothering me, but now I want to either change it to Toph from ATLA or a character from The Owl House.
Currently watching Big City Greens and I'm reading that apparently various Simpsons characters inspired various BCG characters (at least, according to the BCG wiki).
Cricket is inspired by Bart (which I can see)
Tilly is inspired by Lisa (at least, when Lisa is acting more like a kid and not a teenager/adult)
Chip is inspired by Russ Cargil & Mr. Burns
Benny is inspired by Ralph Wiggum
Gramma is inspired by Mona Simpson
Remy is inspired by Milhouse Van Houten (which...I don't know how to feel about and honestly, can't see)
Bill is inspired by Homer (although, I'd say he's more like by Applejack from MLP & Bob Belcher from Bob's Burgers)
Apparently Nancy is inspired by Marge (from what I've seen & read, its hard to see), Vasquez is inspired by Groundskeeper Willie and Andromeda is inspired by Janey of all characters (although, it might just be the fact that she's the best friend of Tilly like Janey is the best friend of Lisa.
And apparently another character called Gabriella is inspired by both Jessica Lovejoy & Nikki McKenna, along with Ronnie Anne Santiago from The Loud House & The Casagrandes (although, I think its inspiration from her role in The Loud House if anything).
Gloria is the only other character that I checked that isn't inspired by any Simpsons characters, but is inspired by Frankie from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, which I can see from what I remember of that show (I also looked up another character, that been Weezie who is inspired by Vincent LaSalle from Recess).
During my watchthrough of Family Guy, there have been moments where the characters go into the distance and can't be heard but subtitles appear, but out of curiosity, I did a test on my phone on, and found out that those scenes can be heard, but my headphones aren't great at all, you can't hear it on my PC and on my phone you can barely hear it, but it comes clear when you put the headphones out. Clearly, I need to use different headphones, but as much as I like my bluetooth headphones, my PC doesn't accept bluetooth due to Micracast so I have to use wired, and its hard to find any around these days.
Does anyone ever have a dream where it makes you question if that dream was trying to tell you something?
I think I had one last night, but I'm not sure if its just because I'm stupid or cause I'm currently drunk right now (have been for the last hour and a half, maybe more). Although I have been thinking about the dream since I woke up, even thou I barely remember it at the same time, if that makes any sense, apolgogies if it doesn't
I really need to find a good Halloween themed PFP for this site. I have it as Carrie from Gumball on Discord so I can't use that, and on Insta I'm still gonna stick with Terra, but regardless, not sure who I want to choose that isn't generic or just going for a Pokémon/Digimon/Yu-Gi-Oh Card
