OH HAI! I'm Jess, and I have a boner.


I'm all about the coloured pencils and things. They smell really good, actually. Seriously they do.

I have a tumblr:

I also am taking commissions! Check out my journal,… , or feel free to note or email me for questions!!

Hey everybody!

Well it's been a while, hasn't it? Thought I'd update my deviantART account.. I think I see some tumbleweed blazing through these parts <--said with a terrible southern accent, because Jess can't do accents at all.)

 Anyone else sick of fuckin' winter yet? Do you guys think spring is coming, one of these days? :iconmadlynotimpressedplz:

 Anyway. So how have you all been? I've been pretty well for the most part. Things so far are actually getting better for us (my boyfriend and I). We found out that we should be able to finally move out of this damned apartment in hopefully a few months, which is great! Our neighbours above us have moved out in the meantime which is just AWESOME because they are just...:iconnotimpressedplz: So we're pretty happy. We've been looking at moving into a townhouse, and then maybe in a year or two, move into a for reals house or condo once we save up the money for one. We've decided we're probably going to move to a central location in the city since it'll be easier for us to get to places like downtown if we had to. Altho we live in a great part of town right now (everything is pretty much in this end) things like friends and family live closer to downtown, and also downtown is nice in the summer and really it'll just be easier for us in the end I think. But honestly whatever we are able to get I guess is the main thing. It'll be a pain in the arse to have to move but we're going to get rid of some of the furniture that we have so...That'll be less stuff we have to move right? :D We're getting a new living room set :D

 Anyway, I started my at-home position... honestly? It's really nice working from home. Seriously, it is. But there are so many annoying downsides. First, we had to change our internet plan for my job which ended up being more expensive (and slower, as well.) and that's really annoying. Second, it seems like they still have all these stupid problems at work that make it kinda frustrating to work because you can't get shit done easily and you have to call this person and this person and nothing is done locally. It's just...REALLY annoying. >.< My boyfriend got a new job so he's quitting in a few days, and I've applied to another job that I'm OVER QUALIFIED for so...yeah. I'm going to keep applying to places and hopefully I'll hear back from someone. We've both decided that we should just have new jobs. Honestly working from home makes me feel a bit like a hermit, I miss going OUT and talking to real people; a lot of times I just feel like I'm sitting on my ass all day and doing nothing, which is really annoying for me since I'm an active person. It is nice to be able to wear whatever the fuck I want UP TO AND INCLUDING PJ'S hahaha, but...yeah. Plus, before my boyfriend got his new job we were working opposite shifts; my boyfriend worked days and I worked nights. It was just...annoying. Anyway. So hopefully everything will work out and I can find something new.

 I'm watching all 3 seasons of The Almighty Johnsons (UGH Dean O'Gorman! :iconflyingheartsplz: )  and the Aidan Turner (UGH Aidan Turner! :iconflyingheartsplz: ) seasons (1-3) of Being Human UK (because to be honest those are the only seasons I give a shit about, I guess the Lenora and Russell leave as well...), and then on to Pushing Daisies (UGH Lee Pace! :iconflyingheartsplz: to appease my fangirl feels for The Hobbit cast while I not-so-patiently await for The Hobbit : There and Back Again to come out in December....Altho Guardians of the Galaxy comes out in August (I believe) and I'll have some Lee Pace-ness there :iconpervplz: My Tumblr followers know how crazy of a Hobbit fan I am, so...yes. After Pushing Daisies... I'll probably catch up with Sherlock (UGH Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman! :iconflyingheartsplz: ) since I need to watch the third season....I'm hoping all of that will take me until December but...I don't know. I just don't know. *stares forever into the distance.....*

 ANYWAY. I'm going to try and post some more art here. I have stuff to post, I just haven't really gotten around to it. I've actually been feeling a little unmotivated these days with my art, like everything I do completely sucks. *groan* I hope this is just a small slump and I'll be able to get out of it eventually. I've been trying to ink some things that I could colour them and maybe just take a break from drawing for a while, but...even the shit I have to ink look...crappy. I dunno. Anyway. So I'll keep you all posted on my job sitch and...Yay!

Have fun, everyone!

I'm pretty good! :D I actually got a new job, so I'm kinda..just working at my old one right now and not really giving any fucks. XD I haven't told them I'm quitting yet because I still need to get confirmation on training from the old one :) (just incase something happens I still wanna have a job hahha!) Other than that... my pen has died and I won't be able to get a new one until like...Tuesday so I can't realy finish any art ARDAFASF!
