Don't worry, I'm not dead (not that I'm sure any of you were worried, really). But sometimes it's nice to know that the people you watch are just MIA and not, you know, actually dead.
A lot's been happening! Big news: I finally graduated BOTH my colleges! AT THE SAME TIME. It was crazy, and a bit of a headache getting my shit together in the final weeks of both (one grad ceremony down, one more to go), but now...
...NOW I'M FREE. AND IT'S WEIRD KNOWING THAT I WON'T BE RETURNING TO SCHOOL IN THE FALL.
Just like that, all my years at school comes to a screeching halt and I'm left with the daunting thought: "Shit. Now I've got to be an adult."
So, with that in mind, here's what I've got going:
While I scout around for my "one big job," I decided to boost my hours at my current job at Kamans, painting names. I'm thinking about taking on a Lead position. Unfortunately, the pay's not THAT much better, but it'll look good on my resume, I think. Hopefully, with more hours and summer coming up, I won't be so poor anymore (and I may or may not plan a trip to Japan with my sister for next year. But that's if I actually get money).
I'm going to get back on track and finish up those OMG LONG-OVERDUE COMMISSIONS AND ART TRADES that have been left on ice since I've been so wrapped up in school. You know who you are, and I swear to god that I haven't forgotten you. I am so embarrassed that I have even let them get away from me for this long. It seriously guilt-trips me every waking day of my life.
Speaking of drawing...I haven't drawn in months (since before or around March, I think). I'm so out of practice. I've been writing, but it's become garbage as well. So aside from work, I'm going to try to improve. Get my art and creativity flowing again and try to rekindle the passion for my art that I've seemed to have lost track of. It's going to be slow going, but I'm determined to make it happen. But first, in order to do that...
I need to clean my room. It's a swamp and I have to detour around stacks of shit to get to my bed. I'm hoping that with a cleaner room, a better atmosphere will be facilitated for creativity and I'll actually WANT to sit at my desk and draw. For now, though, I avoid it like the plague. That's one of the first things I have to do.
So...bear with me as I flutter in and out of here. I'll try to draw and upload things, but for now, I've just got to get my crap figured out. The world has suddenly become wide open...and it's more than a little intimidating.
