ok so long story short:
dad remarried last year and the stepmom is a really traditional northern chinese and is big on family/traditions/etc. For chinese new years they decided to take a family trip to her hometown in chang chun and I had to meet like 934823948729 relatives from her side for the first time.
good news: They let me be most of the time and I manage to get drawings/commissions done
bad news: we're staying at stepmom's parents house and they DO NOT HAVE WIFI orz idk if anyone knows but since the start of 2015 china has started to hardcore block a ton of vpn services. Both my phone vpns are cripped minus one proxy that's horrendously slow (think 30 second wait to load a text tweet slow)
China has blocked dA since late last year so without good wifi I can barely even load my own page on my phone. So in terms of the internets while i'm out here, I'm pretty stranded. I've been able to keep up with the world through twitter slowly... orz
so everyone waiting on commissions, don't worry, they are being worked on. I had some references saved on my laptop thank god... but I'll probably have to double check everyone's notes again when I get back in case I forgot/missed something and need to edit.
thank you for your patience orz now i will go hide in my room from all the drunken loud relatives......... We should be returning back to beijing in a few days, but since everyone knows everyone (minus me) they are all kind of "oh don't leave stay longer" orz GOD SAVE ME i'msoantisocialandthishurtsmesomuch.........
