Back when I was like, "Whoa, 200 watchers!" someone asked if there was a 200-watchers celebration cake looming.
I said that maybe if I ever hit 1000 watchers I could do something special. 1000 seemed like a far off thing that might happen one day if I got really good. If it ever happened, I really wanted to do something special.
I don't know how it happened already. Or at all, really. 1000 is a lot of people. It's easy to be under-whelmed by mere numbers online, but when you really
think about it. Like, imagine is we were all in a room together right now. That's a lot of you. That's enough to make me go hide in a corner somewhere from the sheer terror of there being so many people watching me.
It's happened at the most hectic time in my whole degree (my thesis is due in 20 days! eeek!) so I've not been able to do anything special. So there's no 1000-milestone deviation from me. But I just want you guys to know how incredibly appreciative I am for your support and warmth and amazingness. I was a long-time admirer from afar (okay, stalker) of dA before I got the courage to join. I never imagined how amazing this collective group of artists is to be around.
Thanks so much, from the bottom of my bakey heart.
