A break from battling monsters, saving princesses and barging into villager's houses to steal their money.

 

Hey dudes and dudettes! Long time no post. It’s not that I don’t like you guys, I’ve just been busy with work and haven’t really been compelled to write. 
But Christmas is almost here and so is Pokemon month! So in the spirit of Christmas and Pokemon I’ve not only made this lovely picture but I’ve also restarted my Pokemon Leaf Green file and I’m going to try to catch ‘em all before Christmas. I don’t think I’ll be able to do it but I will try! 
I don’t really have much else to talk about so how about a photo reply thread on this post with your favorite Pokemon! Mine is Charmander ^-^ 
Love, Gwyn.

Um. So I met Pikmin Link today. Holy shit. 
And I got a bunch of pictures taken with her and stuff. They said they might use some of me on the Skyward Sword site because they liked my tattoos o_o I had to sign a release form and everything. 
Almost everyone’s first response when seeing my tattoos was, “Are those real?” -_- … REALLY? *facepalm* Do they look real? How would I make them fake? I wonder if they realize what a stupid question that actually is.
-Anyway-
Today was just insane but awesome at the same time. 
:D

Unmotivated.

Lately I’ve been so unmotivated to do anything remotely productive. A week ago I had so much pent up creativity and ideas and somehow it all fizzled out on me. This seems to be a common thing. I’ll have spurts of ideas and inspiration for so many things all at once and then I choke at the fact I probably can’t deliver so I just get bummed out and give up before I even try. 

I know that’s really bad but it seems to always happen that way. Do you guys get this way with certain things? I think everyone does. How do you deal with it or get over it? For me I don’t really do anything about it. I make up excuses for myself and convince myself it’s ok to feel unmotivated and I shouldn’t try to force creativity if it’s not there. Then one day I just get over it or get inspired to do something and it starts the cycle again. 

I was so lethargic and apathetic this week. I worked a lot more than I have been recently so I guess that was my excuse for half of the week for not posting. But the rest of the time I just layed around my room biding time on my laptop. I played a lot of Sims 2 with my mum and brother. A lot. And I finished all 3 seasons of Clueless as well as the movie. That was probably the most productive thing I did all week. 

It’s times like this where I feel like I should be doing more with my life. I’m 22 years old and I hardly work at the job I have now which isn’t entirely my fault since I can’t work if we don’t have any events booked - but still. In my mind I feel like I haven’t aged at all in the last 3 years or really progressed in my life. I see other people my age or even some younger than me and they have proper jobs and don’t live at home and act like adults with bills and responsibilities. I look at myself and see a girl who’s in a permanent loop of apathy and trapped in her own childhood. It doesn’t help that I still look 16 either. 

I like the idea of being a proper adult. Having a regular full time job and a place of my own. Going to the bank and buying groceries and paying bills. (Yes, this is what my perception of adulthood is). Sometimes I try to be an adult and I get all motivated and do my laundry, tidy my room, make dinner, etc. And then I realize that those are all things everyone should be doing and how immature and irresponsible I am. Then I get really depressed and lay in my blanket cave infront of my laptop and watch cartoons. 

I don’t know if I will ever live up to the adult stereotype. Maybe I’ll just stay a kid forever. Peter Pan knew what’s up with this whole growing up thing. Life is tough. 

Day 2 - A character or scene from your favorite movie
If for some reason you don’t know what this is, it’s the cat bus from My Neighbor Totoro. If you haven’t seen this movie - get off the internet. But seriously, you should watch it because it’s great. And while you’re at it, watch all the rest of the Ghibli films too. 
I’ve loved My Neighbor Totoro since I was maybe 4 years old. My aunt used to live in Japan teaching English and she always brought me back movies, tv shows and toys whenever she visited. This was one of the first things I remember her bringing back and it won my heart right away as one of my all-time favorite films. 
The cat bus was my favorite. In retrospect it’s actually pretty creepy looking but I thought it was the coolest thing ever when I was a kid. Cats were my favorite animal and just fathoming riding inside of a giant cat bus creature and being invisible to everyone else at the same time blew my little mind. 
When I was 15 I went on a trip to Hong Kong and Tokyo and I was lucky enough to get to go to the Ghibli Museum. IT WAS THE COOLEST PLACE I’VE EVER BEEN TO IN MY ENTIRE EXISTENCE. Seriously. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend it. Just Google image search Ghibli Museum and you’ll understand what I mean. And the photos don’t even begin to show the awesomeness and wonder that’s in that museum. 
Here’s a photo of one playroom they have for kids and IT’S A GIANT PLUSH CAT BUS THAT YOU CAN GO INSIDE OF AND PLAY IN. I wanted to go in it soooo badly but I was too big :’(

Ok, gush moment over. 
My point is, definitely watch the movie if you haven’t seen it. Heck, even if you have seen it go watch it again! I’ve seen it at least 20 times. Not even kidding. DO IT.
Love, Gwyn.

I just spent the last 2+ hours working on today’s picture

And I just noticed I completely fucked up the layers and there is no going back. 

I want to destroy everything

:’(

OH GOD, OH GOD, WHAT AM I DOOOOOOING? WHAT HAVE I DONE!?
Day 1 - Draw yourself at this point in time.
Today is my first official day of the 30 day blog challenge and I left it until 1am. WHY!? 
I woke up this morning at a half-decent time, (11am) and showered - ready to take on the day. I taught my brother how to properly make perogies (I am an expert) and then helped my mum get groceries. Solid start to my day. Then picked up Dustin and made everyone dinner. It was delicious by the way. Then we sat around in my room for hours on our laptops watching stupid videos until we realized it was 11pm and he needed to get home. 
By the time I got back it was about 11:30 or so and I realized, “Oh crap, I’m supposed to start my blog today. Oh noo this is not good.” And instead of trying to get something together while I still had time I decided to make popcorn and watch a really shitty film I made 2 years ago in college and have a good laugh. Good thinking, Gwyn. 
By the time it was over, it was after 12 and I still hadn’t started or even thought about what I was going to do for my blog. So I decided to watch all the videos in my subscription box on YouTube. Again, good thinking. 
1am rolled around and I still hadn’t done a thing but I was running out of stuff to keep myself busy instead of doing my blog. -sigh- 
So then this picture happened. Yeah, I bet you can tell a lot of work went into it. I realized that people were actually following me and were probably expecting to see something from me today. Then I crapped my pants a little. 
Then I realized that this is the internet and you guys probably aren’t expecting me to write novel material or draw you a masterpiece. Heck, half of you probably wouldn’t even notice if I didn’t post today. This is for me and for fun and hopefully will be at least a little enjoyable for you too. 
I am a little terrified to do this 30 day thing. Pants have already been soiled and it’s only day 1. But I’m also very grateful for those who have followed me not really knowing what to expect since I haven’t done any posts. It’s a nice feeling to know some of you have faith in me. Or maybe you all know I’ll fail and want to watch the process… 
Well either way, I’m flattered. Thank you and I’ll possibly come up with something a little more thought out tomorrow :) Maybe. 
Love, Gwyn.

I’ve been thinking of things I can do to start off my new blog and warm up my writing skills so I thought a “30 Day” thing would be good to start off with. This is for a drawing challenge, which I will do, but I’ll also write about each thing to go along with my drawing. I’ll start on day 1 tomorrow. I can’t promise I’ll do them all consecutively but I’ll try my best! 
If anyone else wants to do this tag too then definitely go for it!

Where are you from ? And what things do you like to do at home ?

I’m from Canada! And at home I’m either on my laptop watching videos/chatting with people or I’m playing video games pretty much. 

HEY, LISTEN!

Hello, hello my fellow Hyrulians! 

This is the very first post for my new blog, Teatime In Hyrule. I’m aware this used to be the name of my other Tumblr but I felt it would be more fitting for this one and changed my other one to Gwynzilla’s Cavern. 

This blog will be dedicated to written posts and possibly my artwork so if you’re not prepared to read and would prefer mass reblogs of silly photos, you should follow my other blog instead.

I’m not sure how seriously I’ll take this. Right now it’s experimental but I wanted to try it and see what happens. Some days you may get really long, thought provoking posts and other days you might get some random blurb about something funny or weird that happened to me that day. Who knows. Maybe I’ll throw in come cartoons or comics illustrating what I’m writing about if I’m feeling confident. 

Anyway, hopefully this won’t be a massive fail and I hope you all enjoy it :) 

Love, Gwyn.
