Voyage to the Unknown: Manga and AnimeI was tagged in Mrs-Durden's latest feature, Voyage to the Unknown. It is a great project which is basically encouraging people to step out of their comfort zone and check out categories they don't really browse through on DeviantArt or know little about. This way you can discover amazingly talented deviants who would remain in the shadown if you did not check their works out. If you'd like to know more about this project, head over here Voyage to the unknown: Master JournalManga & AnimeI used to be a mange and anime fan, during my secondary school years (which was 4 years ago now ) I would spend a lot of time glued in front of my desktop, watching animes and reading mangas for hours. I still like them, I just don't have that much time - well I do, but now I watch television series instead -.

Hi, Hello! I'm awfully sorry!Folks,I know that I am terribly silent; not posting any articles nor posting any photos. Not to mention interactions! I just don't have the energy for all that. My working schedule is really hectic. Usually I work from noon to 8PM. Because of that I'm off to bed at 10PM and get up at 9AM, then hurry to work and it goes on and on. This time frame does not really allow me to do much.And it is really crazy how fast time passes! It's been a month since I started working. Getting my first salary this week! Exciting and I still enjoy every bit of it. Obviously this sparkle will fade a bit, but will never disappear!I hope everyone is doing good, and if not; hang on tight! Life can be challenging, but one must not give up! Tackle those damned obstacles and learn from them! You will grow stronger, and will face further bad things with much more ease. Have a lovely day & Cheers,Adam
I got a job!Hi,I got a job, finally! Not my dream one, but everyone starts somewhere, not everyone is lucky enough to work in their field what they have studied. Eventually, I will get there as well!I have loads of paperwork to do, they require many stuff, and I have to deal with everything till the end of next week. If all goes well, the week after that I will start my training! So exciting!I will be busy, and exhausted possibly. So I will not be so active on dA nor on other sites for a while, I believe.Which is sad, as I just started to get so many awesome feedback and followers on Instagram! I will try to not neglect photography but priorities change over time. I had enough resting for more than half a year. Now it's time to work! Tell me how are you doing, what's up with you?
