First off, I would like to take some time to personally thank these lovely people:
Some of us may not talk as much anymore, but you guys are the sole reason I branched out to do more with my art. I remember when we all first met a good 3\4 years ago on ffn and how we all were into Lexi's alternate AU forum and all happily giving each other feedback- heck. We all joined DA around the same time too. And really, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for supporting me all of these years. I know you guys get busy with life, but I appreciate it when you drop a comment here and there, whether its on a piece I wrote/drew or just to see how I'm going. To us; the group that started it all~
You guys are definitely my closer friends in the XS fandom, and really I look up to all of you. From your art and style, to the way you handle issues and how you're not afraid to say what's on your mind- I admire you all for that. You guys are just so creative, and thoughtful, and funny, and accepting- and really I couldn't of asked for better. You guys rock!
Some of the closer friends I have made in the Sonic fan base when I first started, and I honestly have no idea what to say. You guys are still here for me, even if we don't talk as much as we used to, and you all continue to make great art and make me feel ashamed.
Keep on truckin' guys! Keep ooon truckin'!
You guys were my lifeline in high school and still continue to be the only true friends I have ever met in any school that I can trust. You guys know you're always welcomed to my place, just drop me a note first so we can make plans!~
There are others I really wanna thank too, but I can't remember their user name right now for the life of me and its killing me! I'll definitely edit this when they come to mind! >.<
And last but not least, I want to express thanks for the life I was given. I am thankful for all my supportive friends and watchers. I want to give thanks for my family's health, because even though they're all sick, they're still here with me to share this day. I am thankful for my mom, because she is like the sister I will never have and the best support I have in my life, and because even with her being as sick and hurting as she is, she is still there for us when we need her the most. I am thankful for my brother, because even though he has disabilities and is sick, he is here another year proving the doctors wrong and continuing to brighten our days with his smile. I am thankful for my youngest brother, because now we are actual starting to get along better. I am thankful for my newfound motivation for both art and life. I am thankful for all that I have. And best of all, I am thankful for every moment I have with my family, because as annoying as we can be, or how weird and silly and straight up stupid we can be, they're the only family I have, and I wouldn't trade what I have for the world.
