That's great! I would feel pretty good if that happened to me....just in the artist club. My art skills went dull, since my free time is being taken up, and I multitask most of the time usually. Life's being good though, especially with Christmas arriving soon.
I also watched Gurren Laggan, and got confused with the ending myself. My top animes, and the ones I haven't finished watching, are Naruto, Bleach, Oban Star Racers, and Sgt. Frog. I've watched Soul Eater and Gurren Laggan....like them both too.
I love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic too. :]
