My Real Life Quest to Follow My Dreams
Courtesy of my Artix Entertainment family—and that includes YOU too.
Hello my loves! I have some exciting and literal game changing news to announce!
I have just accepted an adventure quest to follow my real world dreams.
Hehe, clever, I know. But that is exactly what I’m going to do: I’m going to pursue my true passion as a professional balloon entertainer.
Balloon animals are much more than squeaky colorful creations (although they totally are and are simply adorable!). Balloons allow me to express my artistic side using a real-life 3D medium, create literal one-of-a-kind balloon creations, and, most importantly of all, brighten the days of those all around me.
Seeing hundreds to thousands of smiling faces on a daily basis (not exaggerating) is the greatest joy I’ve ever experienced.
Balloons make me so happy—like the happiest I have even been before.
But you… everyone who plays Artix games and/or who are Artix team members… you guys and gals make me so happy too! So how can I pursue my balloon artist dreams while still being close friends with you all?
Artix Entertainment wants to help me on my balloon adventures.
OMG. Artix and Galanoth and Alina and everyone else here at the Secret Underground Lab are 150% supportive of me following my balloon dream!!!
And you know why?
It’s because everyone at Artix Entertainment is family! And family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.
LOL Zorbak totally looks like Stitch. Thanks, Oishii!
Starting today until mid September-ish, I will be off following my dreams to enhance my balloon bending skills and entrepreneurial endeavors—but I’ll still be helping out as much as I can with AQWorlds. I’ll still do the weekly newsletter, and some FaceBook and Design Notes posts, and a Twitter chirp here and there, because you’re all my friends and family and we totally gotta stay in touch you know? =D
So this is sooo not goodbye—it’s just a heads-up that I’ll be AFK for a little while.
Please direct all game-related Tweets to @Alina_AE, @Memet, and @ArtixKrieger, and please direct all silly-animal-related Tweets to @BeleenAE =)
Have fun everyone, and Battle On!
