Watch your thoughts for they become your words. Watch your words for they become your actions. Watch your actions for they become your habits. Watch your habits for they become your character. Watch your character for it becomes your destiny. -- Anonymous Quote

Greetings! My name is Destinie, and yes my friend that is in fact my real name. I'm 30 years old. I've been married for five years to my partner (lordpenguinman) of twelve years, and we currently have no children. Children will be a thing for us eventually, though. I adore kids.

I live in North Carolina and work as a freelance Illustrator, Comic Artist, and Graphic Designer. In fact, my husband and I are currently working on a comic project called Grimoire Rose that I hope we will be able to share with the world sooner than later.

Many of you have asked how I got the fancy symbol next to my name and what it means. Well, that's the Senior Member symbol. I received this symbol after I served on the Community Relations team for the Anime/Manga community here on deviantART. It was my pleasure and an honor to serve. :rose: You can learn more about becoming a senior member below:

FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member?

And that is the tip of the iceberg on who I am. I hope that you will stick around and get to know me better. :) Ta ta!

In case you didn't see the status update I made:

Apologies for my absence, but I don't foresee it lightening up any time soon. I am starting a new hourly paying job this Sunday, and it will take up the vast majority of my time. I will try to get in and answer messages at some point, but it will probably take me a while and art is going to continue to be less frequent until I get my schedule adjusted to my new situation.

So I'm announcing a hiatus of sorts. A half hiatus really. I feel this new situation I'm in will force me to focus on what is really most important to me in the art and music fields, and that's a good thing.

I'm working at a hospital for adolescents with eating disorders in case you're wondering. It's a humble job working in the kitchen and as an assistant where ever I may be needed, but I'm happy to do it. Amusingly enough it actually pays more than any other job I've had in the past. There are many opportunities at this place, and great people as well. Also, I love helping people, especially children, so win win! I'm actually super excited about this job. :D

In any case, I thank you for being understanding. And I'll hopefully see you around. :)

PS - Huge thanks to all the new watchers I received while I've been gone! I hope to get to know you better as you hang around. I promise I'm not abandoning this place. I just won't be on as frequently as in years past. Life happens. :heart:

Loving you guys!
