~~~-Busy Exams Week!
Wow! A'ight, as if some of y'all couldn't tell already, apologies for being MIA for the past several days! Not only did I have my first exam last week, (bleh, easy stuff, all instrument procedures,) but I got slammed with TWO exams this week! I just took my first one today, with a lovely, saucy, passing grade, but I have my second on Thursday, which means tomorrow will be spent mostly studying as today I'm just giving my brain a bit of a break. We're just now starting to dip our toes into the new mission material, and, while a lot of it is fairly dry and straightforward, it is new and for a new, higher, faster aircraft. And on that note, my second exam this week is all about boldface Emergency Procedures, hooyah! *collective cringe from fellow military aviators*
~~~-Higher, Faster, More Teeth*
And don't think that, after next week, I'm gonna be free all the time again, folks. Oh no, the fun is jussst beginning. Next week is when we actually begin to work on some 'baby' missions, as it were, in the new aircraft. The first flights are really just going to be for getting a feel for the...higher, faster, more-teeth* jets, but there is a lot to plan for for each of them. I got a jump-start on the rest of my class and have actually completed all my preflight planning, charts, and logs, so that'll save me the last-minute headaches and drama of the 'night before the flight,' and inshallah that'll also buy me some extra time on my evenings and weekends to spend on more artwork! * - Not the kind of teeth they were talking about in 'Jurassic World.'
After the first set of missions, to my understanding, there will be more exams...followed by A LOT of flights. Once that hits, I'm going to be a very, very busy Chin Dragon. Same general 'online status' applies from now until then, unless told otherwise - it is not uncommon for several days to go between receiving a response from me on either a Comment or a Note. If more than a week goes by and I have not replied to your Note, please send me another one, as that means it's been swallowed by my Inbox!
~~~-4th of July
'Murica's birthday is just around the corner, folks! *runs through the tall, dry grass, Roman candles in each hand, screaming CHROOOOOOME*
Any of my fellow 'Ammis have any exciting plans for the weekend?! I myself am planning on visiting some family, with more fam coming to meet us in the middle, haha. Going to be a fun weekend of fishing, kayaking, and airboating around some swamps! And fireworks, of course, haha. Remember, folks - mixing fireworks and booze is NOT science! There are no Nobel awards to be had. Be safe at home and on the roads!
~~~-Brief Art Delay Due to All This!
So! What do all these training and life updates mean for current and future commissioners, eh?
I will not be starting any new commissions this week or over the weekend! That said, for the remainder of this week and early next week, I have several pieces lined up in my schedule to be posted. So, with the exception of large pieces, reference sheets, or those that need WIPs, if you've commissioned me in the past about two weeks, you can expect to see your finished piece posted within the next few days. This also means that if you've commissioned me late last week or this week, I'll be starting your pieces probably next week or the week after.
This also-also means I'll be working on fursuit dance-off videos next week, and possibly some new vids as well!
I MIGHT post one of the YCH sketches I've done next week. Perhaps...if I remember, and if my schedule just totally doesn't take the e-ticket out on me again.
It's mainly this double-whammy exam week that has really mussed up my art schedule, but hey, it's aviation, expect the unexpected. And for any new watchers or anyone who just might not be aware: training comes first. Period. End of story. No questions asked.
Also, I just want to thank all my watchers, current and new, for your continued support as always! Current commissioners, thanks for your patience with my crazy, Mach-speed schedule! Current watchers, all your support and Faves and Comments mean a ton, and to new watchers, thanks for adding me, and welcome to the Twilight Zone! B)

In other-other news, what does anyone think of sites like Twitter and Vine? I've honestly been batting back and forth the idea of getting one or both of those, as they've been recommended to me, and could serve like a Tumblr, almost, where I can just reblog pieces, some fursuiting pictures and videos, and just kind of keep a general trend of activity up. What do y'all think? Would either of those be decent for art/fursuiting/general updates?
