Ten years, eh?

This seems like as good a time as any for a decade review. Nothing terribly introspective or anything, just the highlights in point form. Here goes, in no particular order:

  • Got out of an abusive relationship
  • Had other, shorter, but much better other relationships
  • God in and out of BDSM
  • Had an increasing and then declining interest in Paganism
  • Moved to an entirely different province
  • Went to school and started a career
  • Left same career due to physical issues
  • Went to school to start another new career
  • Got tattooed
  • Twice
  • Got into photography
  • Stopped being a photographer and started drawing
  • Animated something by hand for the first time ever
  • Was publicly naked
  • Performed as a drag king (including first king ever at Ottawa Pride)
  • Took part in putting on a charity burlesque
  • Volunteered at the Fringe Festival, Folk Festival and Animation Festival
  • Saw people on the verge of death
  • Got involved in a complex polyamorous relationship
  • Experienced the downside of being involved with a sociopath with ADHD
  • Got into a long distance relationship with a great guy
  • Was introduced to the online fur community
  • Got into European comics
  • Sang in a choir
  • Learned to crochet
  • Fell out of love with anime, generally (Ghibli doesn't count)
  • Lost contact with a number of people
  • Regained contact with a number of people
  • Created a webcomic (now defunct)
  • Gave a guy his first penis as a gift
  • Worked as a dispatcher for home care personnel
  • Bought my first tablet (two of them)
  • Lived with ferrets for the first time
  • Started Playing WoW
  • "Played" Second Life a lot
  • Helped run an online art critique group
  • Visited Toronto for the first time
  • Spent two weeks in an 18-wheeler
  • Ate Vietnamese food for the first time

There's probably more, but that's all I can think of at the moment. All in all, a pretty uneventful decade. Gotta do more this coming ten years, yup!

Two pages today, from photo reference. I think I'm making progress, gotta keep it going.
