I was having trouble focusing on drawing Rain yesterday. Rather than working through it, I went about browsing DA. It was then that I stumbled upon this "What's in My Bag" meme. Just as it sounds, it consists of drawing oneself, with your bag, and all of its contents. I dunno. It's kinda silly, right? I mean, who cares?
But it manages to be a really cute idea all the same, and was just endearing enough for me to HAVE to do. Also, I figured it can't hurt to draw something that's NOT Rain once in a while. And I hadn't drawn myself in a while. And I thought it might be fun to draw all the little knick-knacks in my bag. Okay, I love the idea of this meme. Shut up; don't judge me. XD
So, yeah. I don't have a purse or pocketbook or anything. I strut around with my Starman bag which I obtained basically free with points from buying too many video games. On the one hand, a true purse might be nicer eventually. On the other, it's a pretty sweet bag and a great conversation starter. Plus, now that I present female, I'm taken less seriously as a gamer (even if I probably could school most those critics), so I've got to up my gamer cred at least a little.
I feel like most of the contents are pretty basic and self explanitory, and barely worth mentioning. The most unusual thing is probably my book. I do indeed carry Rain - Volume 1 around with me everywhere. And I have on many occasions whipped it out in conversations. "Oh, you're an author? What's it called?" Insert exaggerated book whipping sound effect here. My Volume 1 has a fair bit of wear and tear from being passed around so much, so I look forward to switching it out for Volume 2 soon enough.
Looking at other people's contributions to this meme (just search "What's in My Bag"), it seems I carry a lot less than average. I still feel like I've got kind of a lot though, so I dunno.
Not shown above, I mysteriously forgot to draw my cleaning cloth (for my glasses) and my Sharpie marker (different from the regular pen), just in case I'm ever asked to sign a copy of Rain for someone. It's only ever happened once, but I wasn't prepared when it did, so I like to keep on that now.
I do not carry makeup. I did once, but a container wasn't properly sealed and it got ugly in there. I wear it (I have to), but I'm not normally out long enough to need to touch it up again, so there's no sense in taking it along and risking getting powder or whatever on EVERYTHING. I really SHOULD have a comb or a brush though. My hair loves to go everywhere I don't want it to... -_-
I USED to carry pads. Kinda like Rain. If you know me, obviously I have no use for them. But if you're a trans girl trying to go stealth, they're great to have for face value (being stealth isn't important to me anymore though, so for me there's no point in carrying them).
I'm actually really glad I did this. If nothing else but to distract from the literary knife twist that is the most recent page of Rain. Hopefully, this is colorful and light-hearted enough to make up for it.
And that's that, I guess. This has been entirely too much information with Jocelyn Samara. I hope you all enjoyed learning what I apparently carry around with me.
Until next time! ^_^
That bag, I have much envy of that bag.
It's very cute to see you drawn in Rains art style... and that's an awesome ringtone by the way... ;3
I see this page, and what song happens to come on Pandora but "Be Like That" by 3 Doors Down.
"If I could be like that,
I would give anything
Just to live one day, in those shoes
If I could be like that,
what would I do,
What would I do?"
My 3DS is the same color (as is the 3DS of probably 75% of the people who have one), and I played Link's Awakening on it this year :p
I recommend Majora's Mask for 3DS.
GET IN THE BAG NEBBY!
