Hello all!

Sorry to have neglected you so :(

This year, for my blog at least, hasn't really started of quite strong now, has it? After the ending I had last year and the stumbling block I hit with not having the capacity to write on here, it's been really hard to get back into the swing of things. I realise now just how important it is to keep the momentum going!

You've probably noticed, even after saying I would make a big effort, I've been pretty vacant from social media, too. But I'm starting this week with a renewed sense of 'go get 'em' -- so I'm striking whilst the iron's hot :D

I'm feeling quite stressy at the moment and I think it's because I don't really get any time to myself. I read a fantastic article the other day about introverted people, explained simply, which made me finally understand myself. They said that extroverted people start off with their energy stores at a certain level, and gained more energy when around people. Introverted people start off at a certain level, spending energy when around people -- and that quiet time alone is needed to restore the energy used.

I consider myself a really happy, outgoing person most of the time - but being with people really takes it out of me, you know. I find myself more stressed and moody when I go periods of time not being able to be by myself, enjoying my hobbies and interests. How do you deal with people in your life that don't get it -- even if you explain it in the way above? It's daunting, to say the least!

Either way - I'm glad I finally understand myself, sort of.
Introverted people - you know what I mean!

Well, that was pretty deep for a Monday, huh!

Anyway, I've really gotten back into anime lately, which always spurs me to get creative and sketch a lot. So it's pretty safe to say I'll probably be bombarding the blog with artwork soon. I hope your Monday is going well and you have an amazing week -- let me know what anime you watch (if you do) so I know who I can geek out with!
