About

(Credit for profile picture goes to sakimichan from Deviant Art.)

Fellow supporter of the Bishōnen industry and market.

I am mostly a self-taught visual artist but I'm currently taking professional classes in college. I don't mind chatting if you're interested. I don't bite much. ;)

Feel free to also shoot me a Friend Request or PM, I like to think I'm a fast responder to those. English is my native language but I can speak a LITTLE French.( Can do basic greetings and ask how you are feeling in French.) :D

P.S- My stuff under "Wished" are the current items I'm searching for or waiting to be released. As for my "Favorites", they are my maybe stuff, meaning: I'm currently trying to decide if I want to get them or not.(My preferences change from time to time so I may change my 'Wished' and 'Favorite' items every now and then.)

If you have a figure I want, feel free to PM me about it! I have a "For Trade/Sale" list for figures I no longer want so feel free to check it out!

I'm open to figure trades! :)

okami34 (5 days ago) #23460966I am on the verge of becoming a sophomore, but I need about 3-4 more hours to become one. I have learned a few things during my time at college so far, but I'm sure there's plenty I need to know. Learning how to deal with summer classes is my current struggle! Please teach my your ways dearest senpai! DX
Even if there are some limits for what you job is willing to fund to further your education, the limitations seem reasonable enough. :) Still qualify for grants and scholarships?
My mom had to travel once in a while for job purposes and her job covered the big expenses for here too. Where is your team going?


Lol 3-4 more hours? That means you are officially a sophomore by today! I never qualified for grants because we were stuck in that bracket where my family income was just high enough to go over the minimum and I wasn't ever smart enough to get a scholarship.

Our team has plans to head to North Carolina, but honestly I'm not sure how it's going to work out. One of my team member can't leave because his kid is due next month and our manager still hasn't reveal any details of the trip.

Let's start the college tip series~
Tip #1: Stay connected to professors. If you don't have work experience, but need references or recommendations from someone, professors are a great start! ...just be sure to hang in there for your summer classes & don't doze off mid-lecture.

Finding the first job is always the hardest ):. No one wants to hire a newbie w/o any experience, but you will never gain experience if you don't get hired! What year of college are you currently in right now? I'm not sure if I can provide any tips you haven't already heard of, but I'll try my best as your senpai +-+

My job is willing to pay $5k in education & training per year. How we allocate that money onto education is up to us as long as it "benefits the company". We do need our managers approval to deduct these expenses though, so I can't be taking cooking classes & pass it off as it's education for the company. What's cool about this is we can also fly to other states to attend conferences & events w/ our plane ticket & hotel covered! I haven't gone on a business trip yet, but I heard our team will some time this month~

darkmewsic (8 days ago) #23340609I majored in business management, but I had no idea what I was gonna do with that major LOL. I thought it was a broad enough major to land me a job and pay for this hobby. I'm so glad I'm done with college though. I can't imagine myself going back to get my Masters or anything because it was honestly a huge waste of time. I've learned more working for the past 6 months than I did in the last 4.5 years in college & now my job pays me to continue my education instead of the other way around.A hands on approach when it comes to careers is always better than learning about in a classroom with a textbook in from of you. I'm currently drilling through college, and I HATE it! Hopefully I can do SOMETHING with my degrees to feed my expensive taste in items! XD

Landing a job is hard, it's either that you're over qualified or you're under qualified.So your job is paying you to get a master's, or is it some other degree?

okami34 (8 days ago) #23322184If Bungo Stray Dogs is as lackluster as you say, I think I will check out Re: Creators. :)
So that is why you picked up a minor? I'm sorry to hear that you were not able to get the major that you originally wanted. What major did you end up choosing instead?
The major I originally wanted to pursue was videogame design, but that degree doesn't exist in the state that I live in. It's too expensive for me to move at this time, and I will loose TOPS if I were to go out- of-state. The closest degree I found to videogame design was New Media and Animation at my college. I chose Marketing to "complement" my major.
I later discovered that the was an institution within my state that does have videogame design, but it only last for two years. You only get a certificate and you don't take the core class that you need (Ex: English and Math).

okami34 (9 days ago) #23293763Which series are you referring too?Bungo Stray Dogs? :/
I find it cool that you minored in World Literature. I'm minoring in Marketing as of now. :D


Yeah, I was referring to Bungou Stray Dogs unfortunately ):. The minor was an add-on because there were too many people enrolled in my major to the point where there wasn't enough classes to fulfill the demand. I ended up taking filler classes & a professor told me I had enough credits for the minor if I took 3 more classes.

In terms of meta-anime, I recommend watching Re:Creators. Characters from light novels, anime, & video games come to the real world to interact with their author/developer. They also make fun of tropes such as the censorship of blood in kid friendly magical girl anime.
