It's been a while since I've written in here so let's get crackin', shall we? Firstly, I finished all 20 units of my nursing pre-requisites with straight A's back in May, however I unfortunately was not accepted to the school for the upcoming semester. After discussing with the counselor who encouraged me to re-apply, I've decided that that is the route to go. I'm still dedicated to becoming a nurse and know that this is the right path for me. 

After final I immediately jetted off to Wisconsin for two and a half weeks where I trained new hires for my company. I then returned to a complete family at home for the first time in five months. Been having so much fun with my sisters! It's not going to last much longer though because on July 22 I'll be taking off to Texas to do more training through October 1. By the time I return, one of my sisters will be back at her university in Washington. Sigh. So we're making the time we have together last. Our next big event is Anime Expo in LA on Friday. I believe Ashley and I are recycling our Mabel and Dipper cosplays from Emerald City Comic Con. Should be interesting at the very least, I'm not the biggest anime fan to be honest. 

Coming up after that is the ultimate nerd event, San Diego Comic Con. My sister Ashley has been working on my cosplays for the last two days and is even making a costume for my friend who commissioned her. My cosplays this year are Formal!Aya, Deandra from the Youtube series The Most Popular Girls in School with Hayley as Trisha, and DisneyBound Phineas complete with Perry plush, pencil, and blueprint if I can actually find a blueprint that is blue (now I have the song stuck in my head). I'll be going all four days and cannot wait for the panel schedule to come out. There are a multitude of panels I want to go to and I hope there aren't many tough decisions that need to be made this year!

On the creative end, I've gotten back to drawing and nearly have my first completed sketch book ever. Weird. I've never done that before. It spans January 2012 to now, and there is some improvement evident throughout the sketch book. I've also been writing more, especially since a certain someone keeps nagging me to work on Imaginary. Heh. I've hit a wee bit of a stumbling point with that, but I'll get over it soon. I also have been toying more with Icebound and actually came up with a new story idea this morning while watching Enchanted with my sisters. It's actually turning more into a collaboration with my sisters since we keep bouncing ideas off of each other and seem relatively on the same page with the story, or at least eventually loving the new contribution. The characters don't even have names yet! I will be taking up the 30 days of writing challenge again too as it seems to be helping with fleshing out the three aforementioned stories.

That's all I've got for now. Bummed I missed out on the HA! meet up, but with unreliable brakes and familial responsibilities, it just didn't make sense to drive two hours for the event. I apologize for not going, but family and home first peeps. Plus my own safety with the car! If you're at AX on Friday, say hi! I'll be wandering about as Mabel from the episode "Double Dipper". Stay cool, kids.

Hey there DeviantArt peeps! I'm Jill and I'm a total geek!

Personally, I'm 24 years old and have recently graduated from college. In my spare time, I play the violin and work in an emergency room. I enjoy Harry Potter, Hey Arnold, The Guild, Battlestar Galactica, Sherlock, Lord of the Rings (hence my DA handle), Avatar: The Last Airbender, How to Train Your Dragon, Pixar films, My Little Pony, Team Starkid productions, Disney films, Phineas and Ferb, and Kim Possible.

I also really enjoy discovering artists and supporting my fellow Deviants when I can. Looking forward to future submissions, discoveries, and feedback! Also, please check out my sisters here on DA. They are :iconmissyrayney:, who does costume design and designed my wonderful Helga and Fireside Girl costumes, and :icondrasi:, who is currently fooling around with GIMP. Thanks for reading!

Deviant ID done by the wonderful :iconwickfield: :) Check her out!

Hey Jill, I got a brand new essay for Frozen up here. :) This one is more of an analysis of Hans and how he plays his role in the film.

Hey Jill. I noticed your avatar, so I wondered if you saw Frozen. If so, did you like it?

I LOVED it! I really cannot wait to see it again! Going to an animator's panel for the film on Saturday to learn more about the process and art concept behind Frozen :D

I saw it twice already and plan to see it again. :) In fact, I am planning to do an analytical essay on it. Would you like to read it when it's done?
