new scanner

So it's been a month--and I was finally able to buy a scanner!

This is big, you guys. It doesn't seem big, but it means something that I was able to do some legwork, pick my weapon (CanoScan LIDE 100)...and pay for every part of it with money I earned and saved myself. I'm not a very...independent person, so this is pretty much a first for me. It's also the very first scanner I own all to myself and don't share with family or classmates, which feels just as significant.

I've had jobs before, but always with supplemental income. Now I'm paying bills and buying important things with money I earned myself,'s about time, you know? Kind of pathetic, but I will improve with age...I hope!

Anyway, I think I'd like to do some sketchblogging to celebrate.

Finished Scott Pilgrim the other day and decided to re-read the whole series, ended up drawing curvy hipster girls...and one skinny one, below.

Her t-shirt reads 'LL YR VWLS R BLNG T S', an inside joke from Making Light, one of my favourite blogs.

Happy Birthday, Canada!


I first celebrated Canada Day in London, although I had no idea that the 'beavertails' I loved to snack on while I was living in Manila were traditional Canadian munchies. This year they have Trafalgar Cup Hockey playoffs! I wish I were there!!!
