Hello everyone! My weekend in Newcastle Upon Tyne the other week went spectacularly! ^^ The journey going through the Lake District was pretty picturesque and breath-taking, especially when I drove through the National Park the first time. :excited: Of course, me and mum did take turns driving to Newcastle and driving back, so that was pretty fair as it was an extremely far journey from where we are, and yeah. XD We did get to our accommodation safely, located just half a mile away from the main shopping centre and we were pretty happy with what the hotel offered essentially. 8D

Right moving on. The following Saturday, me and mum explored Eldon Square and took quite a number of photos of the city as we were pretty amazed by all the main architecture, as well as having a break at Grey's Monument as there were a couple jazz groups playing at the spot which contained a pretty, friendly, atmosphere. :) Around early afternoon, we then walked up at the Metro Radio Arena to see my sister perform during her cheerleading competition, it was pretty engaging seeing all the other divisions competing to be in the big ranks, the music that accompanied each group added a lot of tension and quality throughout. ^^ While I didn't stop in the arena the whole day, me and mum split up and I then took the liberty of bumbling across other parts of the city centre like St. James' Park (home of Newcastle United F.C.), Leazes Park (which is home to a small, but beautiful lake), and Newcastle University; all in close proximity of each other haha. XD I was pretty buzzing I got to explore everywhere I wanted as well. :D Later on, we all met up and stopped over at a Caribbean restaurant which served some pretty, fancy Jerk Chicken and other authentic meals. ^v^ And later that evening, my family and I just stopped in at the hotel as we were pretty exhausted from being on foot all day and done a ton of travelling back and forth. XD I guess we completely underestimated how hilly Newcastle was because the city's based where Northumbria National Park, but we all had a lot of fun time that day. ;P

On Sunday we basically took it easy and travelled up to a small seaside town not far from the city and saw the North Sea, then eventually visited the Metro Centre (Newcastle's version of the Trafford Centre in a way XD) for a couple hours. ^^ And the last attraction we viewed was the Angel Of The North, it was pretty surreal to be at such an iconic monument, as well as pay our respects there before staring the long journey home back to Warrington. UvU

If there was one thing I was a little disappointed of however, I didn't get to meet my friend, naysu. ^^; She did tell me she had other commitments with her family at that point, maybe next time whenever she's not busy. UvU But in the meantime, you should check out her artwork and animations if you haven't already, they're pretty fantastic if I do say so myself. :D

So to wrap this up, my family and I had a fabulous weekend in Newcastle, and we'd definitely go there again. :aww: I'd say it's wise to stop over there for a couple days as there's not a lot to fit all in one day, especially if you live so far from the city like myself. But it's definitely worth going if you're into exploration and everything! ;P

Thanks for reading, and take care everyone!~ :D

Hello everyone! :) Just an update on what I've been up to lately. ^^

Well firstly, I've finally settled into a job that involves a lot of wall stripping in a tall flat building, only for a couple months but hey at least I'm getting paid for doing a satisfactory job :D In terms of the building itself, let's just say I completely underestimated how many flats there were, especially when having to deal with walls that have multiple layers to scrape off and remove those last batches with a streamer. I suppose if there's something I do have to get used to is getting up early. I guess it doesn't help I've been feeling a little depressed lately, especially when I had an emotional breakdown early Monday morning after withstanding 3 sleepless nights... :( I almost didn't feel like going into work yesterday but have been hanging in there, and hey I get to have a laugh with my colleagues as well so that's something to help to uplift my mood. ^^

Secondly, well I'm sure you heard the horrendous incident that occurred over in Manchester. I feel so bad for all those young people that lost their lives after the bombing... :( That really hits close to home for me as I actually live just down the road from the city; and I was highly concerned for my friend, BecSparrow who's from the local area too. But I'm happy to hear she's safe and sound after reading her latest journal. :cling: I'm not gonna let such and incident stop me from living my life either, and I give all my support to those who had to witness that crisis. :heart:

And thirdly, well you already know this but I'm pretty optimistic on heading over to Newcastle Upon Tyne with my family this Bank Holiday weekend, and we've already established what we'll be doing throughout our vacation haha (I also shared this with a friend if me and her do meet up in the city)! :D It'll be nice to explore a city we've never been before as well heheh. ^v^

So yeah, this is what I have planned the rest of the Summer. :) How have you guys been?

Hey it's me! :) Just an update on what I've been doing lately.

Well first of all, I'm still looking for work but have recently had an interview as an environmental operative which entails a lot of horticultural work and general maintenance (which I genuinely enjoy when helping mum out with the garden), so fingers crossed if I do get this job though. UvU In the meantime, I'm still enjoying my voluntary work at the local animal shelter; I even made a mutual friend there during my time at the place and even introduced her to dA sometime ago, NikkiNoo4444 she is. :D While I don't see her at the site every week, it's still a lovely time for when I do work with her though. :) She's such a nice, kind and down to earth person and I like her for that haha. :aww:

I'm still active here on dA, so don't be afraid to come and say 'Hi' on my profile whenever you want. c:

Other activities I've done lately. Well, the last few weeks have been pretty busy as I've been on some days out for both myself, and with my family.

I've recently attended a couple public and geeky events that have been established just a week apart from one another too. lol The first being an anime and gaming convention in Manchester which began not too long ago. I found it quite enjoyable a second time, though I've come to a realization that I wouldn't go for the whole day honestly as it was generally a small venue, but still made the most of the afternoon there regardless, especially in the gaming room where I continuously played Crash Bandicoot 1, even the crew member in the room was amazed by my skills throughout as I literally know the game off by art after playing the game at such an early age haha. XD But eventually, I let other players get to play just before I left the convention. :nod: Another highlight on the day was I got to meet up with foxhat94 once again and had a nice catch up with her too. :aww: I even got to see her friend, hoz-boz whom was working alongside Fox that weekend as well. :)

And just last Easter weekend, me and my family ventured over to North Wales and explored a handful of coastal towns that we've not visited in over a decade. :) It was sunny most of the day though gradually became windy when walking along the shore, but it still didn't spoil our day as we all had a laugh and had an enjoyable time for ourselves. :D And finally, me and a friend headed over to that Play Expo in Leeds I told you guys about. Let's just say that it wasn't what we imagined as we initially thought that it was based inside the Elland Road Stadium, except it was organised inside a small pavilion building just opposite the stadium. We still had a good day but was a little bit disappointed with the lack of special guests and services the expo had to offer, heck even Doncaster's Video Game market had a small venue too and apparently THAT event was capable of having special guests? I don't know, I guess it didn't help that the weather for Easter Sunday was downright awful across the UK as well... >.> But I hope that some who maybe reading at this point, had a good Easter weekend regardless. (^_^)

So yeah, those have been my highlights these past several weeks. :) Back to job hunting for me! o3o

After looking back on one particular journal I posted the other year ago. lol  Questionning.You know I've been asking myself for quite some time...
Is it wrong that most dA users who I watch are mostly girls (I'm not a pervert lol)? I ask because I've currently looked back on how many people I've subscribed to and yeah, the majority are women. I probably shouldn't be too worried about it because I should make an effort to make more friends and join in conversations a lot more often (although, I'm not a good conversationalist outside the internet but I do like to listen to what others are saying), it doesn't really matter what gender anyone is anyway. ^^;


I realise now I'm not ashamed to admit that I do chat to a lot of girls here than I do guys. XD I guess I was pretty nervous at the time thinking if you, my watchers/visitors were okay with that. ^^; Now I'm not some player that scores with loads of women, far from that. :lmao: In fact, a lot of women I have chatted to over time are really nice people and have made mutual friends with them since then, even if we never met in person before haha. :heart: :aww:

Not to say I don't chat to boys mind you, quite a few guys on this site are some of my favourite artists whom I've chatted to frequently as well. :nod: Those being;
So yeah, that's all I wanted to say. ^^ Thanks for reading! :D

Average hours of sleep: 
7-8 hours sleep, usually 1am when I do go to bed. XD

Typing in a username and eventually looking at the weather the rest of the week. XD

When I made this account and why: 
It was 8 years ago back in February 2009. It did take me a while to adjust to dA's assets with little success at the time. Though in the last few years, I was pretty nervous to interact with a lot of artists, not to mention submit anything... :( I can't quite put my finger as to why I was this reluctant but since late 2015, I have made more of an effort to post whatever I feel like talking about and getting to know a handful of artists who have also followed me in return; even going as far to meet a couple people in person too. 8D Seriously, you guys are awesome! :aww: :happybounce: Have your cake and eat it too

Amount of watchers:  
I have 108 watchers! Which I still find to be quite an achievement for me after reaching the 3 digits! (^.^)
Thanks a lot for all your support and kindness guys! I love deviantART!

What I post: 
Argh, it appears that I post journals than I do art submissions, I'll be on 40 journals real soon. :lol:

Blog posts: 
Nope, I don't have a blog site I'm afraid. D:

Do I get a lot of comments:
I get quite a few, depending on what I post. And I read them all and reply to them all! Peace I appreciate all who comment and fave on my artwork and general ramblings haha! Cuddling up with someone close...

Why I chose this username:
Formerly, my username was MobiusRules1, which I found to be incredibly cringe worthy as I grew much older, I eventually gave in changed my name through Core last August. And I'd say I'm quite happy with the name that I have now as it represents who I am as a person and what my favourite hobbies are in life (gaming duh lol). :)

Me and a close friend of mine had a fun but very exhausting day over at Doncaster's Video Game Market again. :)

The atmosphere was still jam packed with several gamers looking for good deals like last time, especially when trying to approach the front table in order to find the games I was looking for. >.> I still managed to purchase a handful of games I wanted to try out (one of which I've already played, but needed to be replaced) those being; Super Mario Land 3, Game & Watch Gallery 2, Pac-Man World 3, Super Monkey Ball: Deluxe, and finally Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. ^^

I don't think I said the last time I posted a journal of the event before, I'd say the big highlight(s) for me was there were an abundance of video game songs playing in the room where the market took place, I got all nostalgic and hummed to so many tracks from games I grew up on haha. ;P The other highlight is when I got to meet MrEchoAngel and TheGebs24 from YouTube once again, this time all in the same building heheh. :aww:

If there was one thing that did disappoint our day, the weather was pretty gloomy going and coming back, especially when driving through the Yorkshire moors. >.< Luckily, it was actually my friend's brother who took us all to Doncaster this time, and we were very grateful that he took us to the event, I can't thank him enough for that. ^.^ Heh, even they purchased a good haul of games also, which is a good sign. ;)

Aww, I hope that you guys have had a wonderful weekend too!~ :aww:

Wow, I can't believe I've reached 100 watchers at long last! :wow: I'm simply speechless as to how to react to this at the moment. ;v; This has been quite a milestone for me honestly. ^.^ Seriously, I can't thank you guys enough for all your friendly support and kindness towards me overtime, especially my general ramblings as usual. XD Not to mention its my 8th anniversary on dA coming up soon too. :aww: Again, thank you all so much!~ :tighthug:

Wow, it's been a while when I last updated my journal entry, including what I've been up to lately. ^^;

So what's been happening with me lately, well I'm still looking for paid work but have recently began a Voluntary Work Placement last Tuesday where I'm currently looking after domestic animals before they're re-homed to new pet owners (the big highlight for me was feeding all the cats :meow:). The building however does reek of animal piss, but I just get on with the job rather than dwell on it. XD While I'm only work a few hours, I'm willing to ask my work colleagues if I can work more hours so then I'm not just dawdling on what other tasks I need to do next. :P

My motivation to draw sketches is still on the low side, almost as if I've not been too productive with my gallery and have been so fixated going through my notifications non-stop and I feel like I've been neglecting what I post. ^^; I shouldn't be so worried if I can't go through them in case they buildup too much. Besides, they're not going anywhere and I've all the time in the world to go through them, so I'm hoping to balance out both submitting content/journals and going through my messages in the process. :) I'm also gradually taking advice from my friend, SamCyberCat to just minimise the use of being on dA nearly everyday so then I have time for myself outside the internet.

As for what games I've been playing, not a whole lot but have been fully engrossed playing my copy of Pokemon Sun that I got last Christmas, I've almost completed the post game and I'm about to start catching the Ultra Beasts sometime soon. ^^ I'm also happy that one of my closest friends, Haruka-Tavares volunteered to do that online trade I mentioned a couple weeks ago to evolve a couple Pokemon that I wanted on my team, I was helped her out to evolve her Pokemon through trading in return; I can't thank her enough for that ^.^

So what I'll be doing next month, not much but me and my friends offline have been debating on whether to head over to Doncaster's Video Game Market again; just like last year's event. We'll see what happens. ^^

So yeah, that's what's happening in my life as of now. :) What have you guys been up to lately?

When some artists who you've looked up to all these years and then overtime, you then see them for who they really are behind the screen. Sassy, arrogant, and outright mean, almost as if they've turned into a completely different person entirely. Yes, I understand that some have had a rough upbringing all their life, but that is NO excuse to mistreat your watchers and make them feel bad the same way either! :|

I'm so sorry for this mini rant of mine, just something that I had come to terms with this week...

13 Questions!

1. When did you first join dA?

22nd February, 2009.

2. Has any artist on dA inspired you way above any other?

3. What's your favourite fandom?

Supposedly Sonic but I'm slowly starting to grow out of that fandom for various reasons i won't go into full detail. *cough* Divided fans *cough*

4. Have you ever created a group?

No never, my enthusiasm for groups is pretty limited. >.>

5. What's your most popular drawing on dA?

My head sketch of Sonic since it has the most faves out of all my sketches. Sonic Head Sketch

A contest in general or on dA? Well on dA, I've never participated in a contest.

Not once, though I have advertised some adoptable's for my friend, SweetDream87. :)

Ever since I did a shout out to all artists that I was officially proud to call them my friends. ^_^

10. What has been your favourite dA April Fool's prank so far?

I can't remember off the top of my head, sorry. XD;

11. Have you ever had Core Membership?

Yes, just last August. :) I have been debating on whether to pay an annual purchase since I overall enjoyed some features being Core member had to offer from poll lists, Live notifications, no adds obscuring my interactivity, and adding a visitors widget to see who's viewed my profile. XD

Traditional Art mostly, though someday I may decide to do Digital Art in the process, but don't know which editing software I would be most comfortable with. o3o
