Came back weeks ago, but haven´t been here as much as I used. Too many stuff, family especially, happening. (and problems with energy bills, too, since it´s summer in my land now - VERY hot summer)
One of the best things is that I got a tablet as Xmas gift!
Still can´t handle it well, but as soon as possible I´ll put the DA app on it. I´m hoping to take part in a contest or two in 2015, and be more present on Os to UA (damn it, I founded it).
At the end of every Year I like making a kind of personal retrospective - it helps you to realize, ocasionally, that a year wasn´t as bad as it seemed. Lemme see...Bad Things
My family had lots of expenses and I had to help in the house reforms, because of the imminent visit of some friends of my mom. Before you´ll think I´m whining, the cleaning and reform were from January to April.
Recently, the authors of Dragonball Multiverse announced that they´ve gave up on the series.
How to Train Your Dragon II The only things I really liked were the initial flight sequences and Stoic´s song. The rest...
Wrong Time (another amazing DBZ fanmanga) was abandoned, too. :_;
Kevin´s cool past was destroyed by Omniverse cruel, insane scriptwriters, and instead of son of a plumber he´s a mutant. All that because they wanted to make Ben 10 timeline "faithful" to Ken 10 episode at any cost. (same reason why Julie was taken away). Dwayne McDuffie must be crying and rolling in his grave.
For some weird, misterious reason,
has blocked me. I don´t remember of having said anything wrong to her, or to her work.
Lost my inspiration most of the time, excepting for a few OUAT fancomics. Honestly, I´m pretty worried about having lost my touch, but hope it´s just temporary.
Boko Haram kidnapping those poor girls. You may say "but that doesn´t affect you directly", but it affects me as a woman. Those girls were kidnapped because they were STUDYING, and fanatical monsters didn´t want that. They´ve been raped diarily, forced to help those terrorists and marry them, and become submissive slavewives. Even if some´ll be eventually rescued, they´ll never recover themselves from these heinous experiences. And worse, that may happen again, again and again.
Still haven´t a job. Some chances showed up for me, just to bite the dust quickly. I feel like imitating Rapunzel and singing "When my professional life will begin"
My favorite Once Upon a Time couple has spiraled down. First, Rumplestilstkin was slaved by that witch, now... As much as I think he deserved a good punishment, and that I´m sure he´ll eventually redeem for good, I´m not happy. Can´t be. Good Things
My brother finally moved away... the simple fact that I no longer had to make magic to squeeze my personal toillete stuff among his tons of shampoos, colognies and creams put me singing "Let it gooo". Not mentioning that I no longer have to tiptoe in my own room in the morning because he´s still sleeping besides.
I made good friends with my mom´s friends, and they invited me for some days in their city. It was an amazing experience to finally being able to travel, meet a different culture (tons of amazing artcraft). And I finally got over my airplane phobia.
Rejected Princesses! I talked about them a few months ago... if you don´t know them yet, I suggest you a research on tumblr.
Dragonball Sai - it´s a Japanese fanmanga that shows how it would be if Vegeta was sent to Earth instead of Goku. I´ll be more detailed about it later, but here are the links by now - www.caldostrong.com/2013/05/su…

The tablet... already said.
Mistery Skulls Ghost - I´m not much of this kind of drawing style (reminds me DJW´s a little), but couldn´t help but falling on these characters and the amazing song - [link]
Met Duolingo and started learning other languages - always dreamed of learning Italian. Too bad it has no Japanese.
I´m working on Untamed again. If my artist sense has been stuck, at least my writing side has returned.
Read tons of books and watched many movies and animes I´ve been craving for years. I even found Deadly Friend (the book that gave origin to Wes Craven´s movie) as an e-book, and according to readers´ comments, it´s very different from the movie.
Met many wonderful comics and mangas online, including Chocolate and Pepper - you MUST read it! The author, Chikorita, is a darling and a wonderful artist.
