1-10-21: I'm doing fine, people. by BartTheSock

Okay, the last month has been pretty weird. I got over COVID-19 about two weeks ago, so that's good. I don't have any lingering side effects, so that's good, too. I figured I should mention why I haven't posted anything in almost a month, though.

I think what happened was that when I got COVID-19, I didn't have much energy left to be creative and draw anything for Inktober, let alone comics and stuff. Then when I got over it, I couldn't seem to bring myself to draw anything because I hadn't been drawing for a while.

I also decided to start reading again as a hobby, rather than just playing video games and watching YouTube and Netflix. I have a goal to read 100 books by the end of the year. That might sound hard, but I'm a pretty fast reader with a pretty extensive vocabulary. I can read long fantasy books in less than a week, and believe me, when I got Dragonwatch #4: Champion of the Titan Games last October, I read that book in only two or three days, even though it was 528 pages long with only a couple of pictures in there.

Because of my reading goal, and the fact that I'm getting a job, I probably won't post as many comics this year in order to save time for reading and my job. I'll still post stuff, just not as much. At least not until I figure out a good schedule, anyway.

Christmas was pretty good despite the fact that it was only me, my mom and stepdad, and my little sister. I got Pokémon Ruby, plush toys of Beedrill, Mewtwo, and Mudkip, as well as some money, chips, candy, and other things. I turned 19 on January 4, 2021, and I got Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, some gift cards, a big Pokémon-themed puzzle (that was already put together and framed), some cookies, and plush toys of Treecko, Torchic, and Crobat. Well, I already have Treecko and Torchic, but Crobat is coming late, so... yeah.

I beat the first two gyms in Pokémon Ruby and the first gym in Pokémon Diamond. I also played Pokémon Pearl long enough to trade my Chimchar (in Pearl) with an extra Zubat I caught (in Diamond) so I would have both a Turtwig and a Chimchar in Pokémon Diamond. Then I traded my Piplup (in Pearl) with an extra Geodude (in Diamond), so now I have all three starters in Pokémon Diamond. I can't really use Chimchar and Piplup yet in Diamond until I get the Forest Badge from beating Gardenia at the Eterna Gym, which not only lets me use Cut outside of battle, but also lets any Pokémon up to Level 30 obey me.

I also beat the Ender Dragon in Minecraft with my brothers Chase, Dean, and Jay, along with their friends Robert, Becca, Sui, and Justin. I can now officially say that I've beaten Minecraft.

Okay, enough rambling from me. I have to post a picture I drew about a week ago that shows that I can draw in more than just one style (at least with a tutorial). You'll see.
