Although I am excited about summer break coming up, I'm more excited about my dA anniversary coming up. It will be the fourth year since I've been here on dA so I'm very happy to almost reach five years! That would be a great milestone to reach. x3 Probably won't do anything to celebrate, though, since it's more of a "personal" holiday for me. xD I would like to get another year-long subscription so I'll work towards that now. 83
The other thing that I'm feeling jumpy about is final exams. I'll have two tests on the 3rd, therefore, I need to buckle down and study my ass off so I can pass. I hope I can. ; w ; I'm going to make sure I save myself a spot for summer classes. I know my mom's going to be searching around the house to make me clean something or do something else. Plus, I know I'll be bored as heck if I just sit around and do nothing all day. It'll drive me crazy like it did last year. Dx
Lately, with some of the time I have, I've been trying to catch up in the enormous list of anime episodes I've been holding off on. I'm still patiently waiting for BLEACH to start up again. I miss the English dub a lot, even though I'm pretty caught up in the manga.
Speaking of shoujo manga, I just the second volume of Papillon in the mail! I had expected it to come in May but I'm still happy that it came early. Just a few more and I'll have all the ones that came out! *squeal* I'd like to buy more manga but with the limited funds I have, I'll have to put that dream on hold. xD If I had enough, I would definitely go on a shopping spree in the bookstore, Amazon, and at conventions...
Anime Expo is coming up in a few months.
Commissions and trades are open again since I'll be heading towards my third goal on the list. It includes getting another subscription~ 83 I'm still working on getting another PayPal account so I can open real money commissions. My mom barely has time to talk about it, though I'm still wondering why I even have to ask her anymore. Eh... Hopefully, it'll work out for both of us. I have my fingers crossed.
Well, that's all for now! Thanks again for reading and have a great day/night!
- Yumi-chan, the broke one~
P.S. Stole this from since I thought this would be interesting. Feel free to steal!

Your character may be a bit on the boring side. Of course, this does depend, but generally if they are scoring that low, it wouldn't hurt to 'spice them up' a bit ^^

If your OC scored around here, then they are probably quite a well-balanced and interesting character. Those scoring in the higher end of this category may be a bit too much though.

We have a problem. You need to tone your character down. They are most likely a bit annoying to others, too.
