Доброе утро, and hello my friends. My worst fears have inevitably been realized.
I'm being put in a dorm. For uni preparations.
I knew full-well that I was gonna be assigned to one, but this is still probably gonna suck a bit. I need. Tips to cope. Please, thank you.
While I still have internet access, and while my English is still vaguely understandable, have a tagme by !
1. What does your deviantART name mean and why did you join this site?
-Bahaha, these points seem irrelevant to each other! But well, I've had 3 deviantart names to date;
the first one was UlquiorraRT, meant to combine my favorite anime character back then with art. I came to realize that it was a really cheesy name, so I changed it to ippotsukou, which I got from my other favorite character, Accelerator, and his associated phrase "Ippo tsukou", which means "One-Way Road". Next, I felt like I wanted to make it seem less generic, so I chopped away at some vowels and we got ippotsk. And I've been sticking with that for every site ever since.
-At first, I joined dA back in '11 just to follow my favorite artists, but then I realized I could draw and color digitally a bit, so I thought I'd post some of my works there! And boy, it was really nice getting to know all of my artist idols and pals, you guys really did make my years feel more colorful and exciting. Thank you all; stay hella.
2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
-DIGIMON! BLEACH! BIONICLE! And a slight one, YOZAKURA QUARTET!
Now, I can pretty much be obsessed with any series I used to like; provided I have a pal to spazz about it with. But I think my top series are Yozakura Quartet, Kagerou Project, D-Frag, Kuroko no Basket, Shingeki no Kyojin; well, I'd spazz about anything as long as it's about anime or manga. Hahaha.
3. How many watchers do you have now?
-Classified. I think.
4. Name 3 of your favourite artists on dA.
-I've had a lot of new waves of godly inspiration, but my heart (haaa) always takes me back to the godly-and-friendliness of senpais like ageha1sBf Snatcherkid kumashige d4nch , and many, many more awesome people! ; v ;
5. Do you comment fav, or both?
-I usually comment on anything I like, or is lacking in input. And if it really catches my eye, I'd fave it. But to be honest, if I see a really nice drawing with tall stream of viewer comments, but the artist doesn't respond to any of them, then I'd just fave it, and store its glory in my brain.
6. Do you participate in clubs' contests here on dA?
-Hmm... I've entered a couple of dA commies back then, but that's it! I don't think I can parttake anymore because I'm a bit busy with my own works.
7. What is your most popular deviation?
-Nnn, it depends! The one with most comments is prolly , while the one with most views and faves is . I'm really glad you all liked them so much, thank you guys! ; u ;
8. What are your favourite non-anime TV shows?
-Nature/Science/History documentaries, cooking shows, cartoons, and some films. |"D

11. Rain or Sun?
-Then again, I do like rainy, dark days...
12. What's your favorite type of music?
- I actually like a lot of random genres, like pop, techno, anisong, the dreaded K-pop and dubstep, even those lame old boring classical stuff. But my true game will always be rock. Or anything with rumbling drum beats and killer guitar reffs.
13. PC or Mac?
-I've always been a PC user. Maybe because it's all I know.
14. Anime or Manga?
- I'm mainly a manga guy, and I get super hyped if any of my favorite manga series gets animated; but I also watch and download anime eps sometime.
15. Coke or Pepsi?
- I don't really like the taste of Coke, or any soft drink for that matter. I'd say I'd like Pepsi more, but my passion for carbonated drinks will always be with strawberry Fanta.
16. Read or TV?
- Bahaha, I only read things if they're relevant to my interests... However, it's a bit easy for me to find myself glued to the TV screen sometimes. Especially when I'm on the couch, with some quality cheap snacks.
17. How many hours a day do you spend on DA?

19. Flash or Traditional Cartoon?
- Nnn, I've grown up with regular old cartoons, but I really appreciate the work and effort put into good flash animations! A whole lot!
20. What is your favourite fast food restaurant?
-Dominos Pizza, because Pizza Hut is too mainstream, and regrettably, McD. I don't care if their food is made of plasticine or whatever, just eating a cheeseburger from there can raise my mood up by 95%.

I'd also like to visit the Europes! A bit like my father used to, haha.
I've stayed in the land Down Under before, but I felt it was a really nice place to have lived my childhood in; I'd really wish I could go back again sometime, mate. But for now, Indonesia is where I'll be.
