Finding out that I have Aspergers syndrome might be the best thing that happened to me recently. It explains so many problems I face everyday and at least now I know that they didn't happen because I didn't work hard enough to prevent them.
If you don't already know what Aspergers is, it's basically a social disorder a.k.a. highly functioning autism. Aspies have trouble recognising social cues and have trouble with non-verbal communications. We're obsessive over certain interest and have a pattern when doing things. We don't really dislike company, we're just really awkward. It might explain why I like literal jokes but never gets those which involves people reacting with each other. It's not that I'm not smart, I'm very intelligent, but when it comes to social chitchats, I basically talk like a chatbot. It's like pulling responses out of a database of response to each line the other person says, I never really get a sense of the whole conversation.
Now I know it's not all my fault I'm extremely awkward. Like that time when a guy wanted to treat me, he had to repeat it twice in my face word by word that he would like to pay for my food and I shouldn't be staring with a bill in hand. That was really awkward.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger…
So for the past month I was busy writing and directing an original musical. If all goes well, the recording of that stage performance should hit Youtube some day. I didn't have many photos of the making of the musical especially the props(you guys would be interested in how I made Maleficient's headgear) so I can't show it here. I was so busy I I haven't even played Arena Commander!
I was also fortunate enough to attend a sketchwalk with many professional artists. I also attended a workshop with a renowned artist who specialises in drawing human activities. That was a really cool experience.
So this has been a long update that no one is going to read but I'm gonna post anyway. I'm still really busy and couldn't draw much. Most of my drawings now are done doodling in class and a lot of them gets rejected from my DA gallery and thrown into my Tumblr sketchdump. I have more doodles and comics there. exoen.tumblr.com/
