It certainly has been a while!

And I am back to report on the time I spent as a full-time proselyting missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ( for the website based off our faith's nickname, or if you want to check out the main website about our church. Cheers!).

I had the pleasure and opportunity to serve 1 year and 1/2 in the Japan, Tokyo South Mission. Which is basically the outlying suburbs of Tokyo, not the city of Tokyo itself. XD (Like the difference between New York State versus New York City. New York really does cover more than just that little island--otherwise the X-Men would be homeless! Similarly, Tokyo covers more than just the city.)

The people there are the kindest I've ever met. <3 I love Japan, and I miss it. But simultaneously I am glad to be home, among family and friends.

It may be a little while before I am back to playing an active part in the DA community, but when I do you'll be seeing both artwork and photography. :) In the meanwhile, feel free to ask me about my time in Japan and the people I love that live there. :)

I look forward to hearing from you all, and I hope that you are doing well!

Hello my friend, how are you? I hope you are doing good.
I'm getting better and better! Also I apologize for the lack of my promised work. As soon as I send my work for Diablo III contest I'll start thinking about you're work. I'll try to do it the fastest I can, I promise.

Take care!
