2020 was an interesting year. In general, it was almost the worst it could've been. Global pandemic, political tensions across developed countries like China and the US. The latter almost at civil war. Things are crazy out there, but here I am in 2021 finally pursuing a goal and realising who I am. Eye-openers are abundant with how the world dealt with 2020.

Firstly, and on-topic with the website (as it should be) I'm selling almost my entire collection next week. Shocking right? Those ten figures in my collection being sold for pennies? No shit, but let's just say 90% of my collection isn't recorded in my profile. I've got so much filler and useless (and sometimes VERY valuable) junk I am selling to the local figure shop here in Melbourne. My collection is about to shrink to a minimum.

Got preorders I am keeping for value sake despite not wanting them anymore. Having specific collections now to fuel my inspiration. This way I am saving money, keeping an eye on what I DO like.

Secondly, last year I joined an incredible group of artists at a local studio downtown. While it has been Zoom meetings this whole time, we're finally back to the location and its really exciting me. Safe to say, I am semi-professional in my art career.

I've been in 2 exhibits within a couple months and a couple limited-print zines in the works, with one being exhibited at a national Online Zine Fair in February. Every week I've now got drawings to work on and improving vigorously. Despite having a disability, I'm no holds barred.

Thirdly, I have said this many times but I quit gaming for good. I feel better without it outside the odd simulator and Pokemon Go. Games give me anxiety, stress and its time I appreciate being in the community. Pop culture is a massive part of my life but now its just great researching wikis, watching highlights, collecting and drawing my favourite characters. It satisfies me without the shitty frustrations.

Fourth and finally, I'm actually accepting me and my struggles. I am now wholly satisfied with where life is heading. Nothing worrying to me right now, my career is running smoothly and I feel wholesome. I have been lead to extreme self-satisfaction.

To everyone who is struggling in this tried times, don't give up! Be yourself and learn of what you have and not what you have not.

Stay safe,

Nega

But good work selling your figures it’s best to put hobbies on the back burner now then to acquire plastic figures and clutter our places more(personally I will still collect but for me it’s video games)


I'm still collecting. However I'm almost starting from fresh. :)
