This has been something I’ve been meaning to write about, now that I’ve had my tigoat, Jackie, for a while. I have posted her ref sheet I whipped up and the only two art pieces I have of her on my art gallery sites, as well as Twitter and Tumblr. Continue reading

There’s a new, trending hashtag on Twitter that was started by my friends Wolfletech and Rhye. The goal for this is to allow furries who don’t own fursuits (financial reasons, no desire, or tried it and didn’t like it) and furries who don’t/can’t draw get noticed. Though, I’ll be honest, Wolfletech says it better:
Recognize others who do great things for this fandom that they may not even realize. Be the community we all love and enjoy, and let us know

And that's the reason for this, everyone contributes to the community even though they don't think so!

And I’ve come to know some great people in this fandom, regardless if they draw/own a fursuit or not. Even if they do draw or fursuit, they’re still genuine people who don’t let those get to their head, should they become well-known because of it. They have those talents and window of opportunity that, quite frankly, tend to get more recognition for one, simple fact: we’re a visual fandom that tends to have a short attention span. Yes, there are people in the fandom who have neither or only one or the other, yet still get recognized because of some other talent, a non-artistic contributor to the fandom, or, unfortunately, infamy for…something. I would make a list, but, if you’ve been in this fandom long enough, you’re probably already thinking of a few people in the fandom who fall under the latter description.
I’ve already written a short post when I “joined the fandom” back in early 2015 titled, “Thoughts on Being a Furry”. Some of my thoughts and feelings since writing that have changed; some have not. I’ve experienced quite a lot in this fandom during those two years, and I still love being a part of it, despite its flaws. Continue reading
I don’t know why it is, but I’ve been switching between really wanting to get a fursuit and not minding that I don’t have one. While it is true that the majority of furries don’t own one, they’ve almost always been a huge part of the fandom; they’re the first thing outsiders see and think of when furries get brought up. Anytime someone posts a pic of their fursuit, primarily on social media, it almost always gains the most attention, both good and bad. I’ll be honest, this bothers me a bit.
To start with, this won’t be a play-by-play journal of all that I did at MFF. A lot of this will share what I felt during the con as it progressed and some highlights from the weekend. Of course, at the end, I will post a photo gallery of the pictures I took and what I got. Continue reading
It seems for the most part, I have many good traits, and those that just are what they are. However, like all people, there are some vices or bad traits that make up who I am – addictions, poor health traits, anything that could potentially damage me in the long run, etc. Based on my beliefs, this stems from original sin and that it’s in my nature as an imperfect human being. Of course, that’s why I need Christ in my life. While these negative qualities are few, they can quickly cancel out all the positive or unique qualities of myself if I’m not careful. Continue reading

I wanted to write something on this blog in particular, but I couldn’t think of anything with substance. College has been busy, and I’ve been very tired lately. Things have been going slow a little in my brain. So, to scratch that writing itch, I decided to tackle one of the prompts from The Daily Post. Continue reading
After hearing about what has happened recently with one of my friends, it got me thinking about my singleness. All my life I’ve been single; I’ve never had a girlfriend (or boyfriend considering I’m questioning), and I’ve loathed that. There was always this small hint of jealousy whenever I see a couple on campus, or anywhere for that matter, and I’ve always thought, “Am I not good enough to have a relationship with someone? Is there anything wrong with me?” You know, the self-entitlement stuff. I’ve had crushes in the past, sure, and I have a crush on Ben, but those feelings are somewhat dwindling and I don’t think about him in that way much anymore. I think this is the first time I’m thankful for my singleness. Continue reading
