So I managed to check most of what was pending, and bring my message center down to "2." I don't think it's been this low since maybe 4 years ago. I feel extreme.

I guess you noticed the massive update I just did, and I hope I can keep up with this more often than, well, you know, once every 10 months. But I can't promise anything, so let's just see how it goes.

Anyway, let me give you a little run-down of this year:
- Fly back to Vancouver from Monterrey.
- Meet new bipolar roommate who rearranged entire apartment without waiting for me (who had been there since before) to arrive, and at least ask me if I'm ok with it.
- Start depressive season.

- Mild Depression.
- Bed bugs?

- Fly down to LA for Paley Fest, and meet people from the COMMUNITY cast.
- Happy for an entire month.
- Start working on student animated film (pitching, storyboarding, animatic, layout).
- Bed bugs?

- Work on student film (rough animation).
- Bed bugs?

- Work on student film (rough animation, clean-up, inbetweening).
- Definitely Bed bugs.
- Roommate leaves for a month.
- Sleep on the living room while bedroom is fumigated.
- Live off of garbage bags.

- Depression starts to fade.
- Work on student film (still doing clean-up, compositing).
- Fly down to LA for #SIXSEASONSANDAMOVIEARTSHOW (three days before the scanner cut-off).

- Depression is GONE.
- Finish student film three days before everyone else.
- Fly down to LA again for first Soup taping.
- Get to meet muse/hero/role-model Joel McHale.
- Start work on Flash film.

- Finish flash film.
- Graduate.

- Turn 25.
- Move back to Mexico.
- Fly up to LA for 3 weeks for... stuff.
- Visit COMMUNITY set (twice).

- Back to Monterrey.
- Start getting studio/office/work-space ready.
- Sporadic depression (every week or so).

- Waiting.
- Student film reaches 100k views on vimeo
- Stop getting depressive fits after getting back in to EVANGELION and anime in general.

- Move into studio/office/work-space.
- Fly up to LA for a week for... stuff.
- Visit COMMUNITY set, and Disney TVA studio.
- Still waiting.

So yeah. Apparently, I've spent most of the year submerged in depression, but now it's fixed. I haven't been depressed in two months, and, quite frankly, I've achieved SO MUCH this year, I can just say this has been the best year of my life (I honestly can't remember most of why I was sad, I can only remember the intense joy I've felt).

:heart: :heart: :hug:

Artist | Student | Film & Animation
A child of the late eighties, Julieta Colás was born in Monterrey, Mexico, where she was raised by her lovely family, and bullied by most of her classmates. Constant rejection from her real-world peers eventually led her to making great friends with the characters on her TV screen. She now dreams of creating TV friends for the many lonely kids who are just too socially retarded to understand why teachers do not need to know they were supposed to check homework that day. She wishes she had more time to do and draw everything she wants, without having to sacrifice sleep. She doesn't date much.
