I try to keep the update thingy as short as possible, who ever wants to know more about my time in Ireland---just PN me, but I'm pretty sure no one will ask anyway so---WHY AM I WASTING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME?!
Mkay so yeah.
I'm still alive.
This was the most imporantant statement for me and that's why I started with that.
Ireland is a really great country, they have many things that are different to Germany (I especially enjoyed these leashes for little kids. like seriously. parents give their kids a backpack with a fucking leash so technically they can walk their kids like dogs! LIKE DOGS! CAN WE MAKE THIS A THING GERMANY?!)
and the traffic is a whole different thing. No one gives a shit about streetlights.
Red, green, yellow, blue, soap, CUCUMBER?! No one. Gives a flying. FUCK. Just walk. Just do it. The chance to get killed is there but that makes walking a lot more...exciting
Howevuuuur, public transport is a pain in the ass but it's a bit more reliable than the german one. Besides the fact that you can't take the bus because it takes an hour to get from Dun Laoghaire to Dublin City Center and I have an agenda guys. I do. I really do. Don't question that. And taking the train between 8 and---every goddamn time after that is not cool because the trains are just PACKED. Seriously, when I want to be in a small room with 200 people I'm sure there are different, funnier ways than that. (Sidenote to that dude who slapped his heavy bag into my face for 20 minutes straight instead of placing it on the ground like everyone else: I will find you. And I will kill you. With your own. heavy. bag.)
Alright, let's move on. Since I'm not here for having fun with strangers on trains (or more specifically with the bags of said strangers), let's have some talk about the work I'm doing here. The unpaid work.
So at first I was working in a Tourism Shop but, long story short, I was actually just a nice part of decoration for them so I changed to a Hotel and this place is a lot nicer because there's actual work to do!
I like the way how people swear a lot and no one cares and how I can be 10 or 20 minutes late. And no one cares. GERMANY. MAKE THIS A THING. OKAY?! OKAY.
Okay. So I guess that was the short version, just some impressions and stuff.
And since I'm pretty sure 90% of the 5 people clicking on this journal will probably skip everything that does not contain words like "free art" and "raffle" and "beer" (btw irish beer is fucking strong, even the so called "german beers" they sell. they are not german. they aren't. stop telling me wrong facts about my own culture, GO AWAY.)
I will now continue with the interesting stuff:MY CHRISTMAS RAFFLE 2015!
I know. There was no Christmas Raffle in 2014 or 2013 or anytime before but it sounds a lot nicer this way.
I feel like drawing some random characters so I decided to hold a little raffle. Like really small.
The prizes will be 3 full colored bust ups of a character of your choice!
Have some do's and don't for that:Do's:
1. Own Characters / Fandom Characters
2. Canon Characters
5. Kemonomimis (Characters with animal accessories)Don't's:
1. Semi-Realism / Realism
2. MLP, Anthro, Mecha
3. explicit violence, gore, too much blood
5. too difficult character designsExamples:
What you have to do to get a number (because this time this will be completely random):
1. Fave this journal.
2. Watch me. (I want to keep this Watchers only, so if you are only here because of the chance of free art---don't.)
3. Spread the word! (Share the journal! This is optional tho.)
And that's it. I'm totally out of these raffles and how to host them so. Let's keep it basic.
I hope some of you guys are interested in that!The deadline will be December 5th 2015!
I will announce the winners in a new journal on that day and hopefully I will upload your prizes around the 24th or 25th of December.
I'm confident with this since I'll be in Germany over the christmas days so yeah. There will be a bit more time for things like these xD
And that's it for now!
I hope you guys have a good time, take care and I will see you in the next journal!
