Wow... I have definitely not been very active around here, have I? Eh, not that it really matters. Don't exactly know why I'm doing this journal update anyway, but what the hell. I have a lunch hour to kill and I can't really draw comfortably at work, so I figure this is the next best thing.
First of all, for those that know me and haven't heard yet. I've finally moved out of the hellish situation I've been forced to move back into for the past year. I can already feel the stress leaving my body... as well as my cash leaving my wallet, but I expected that. I am living in a decent sized apartment with my aunt because she needs a bit of help too and so we are helping each other out a bit. Almost settled in, just have a few things here and there to finish up.
For those who have known of these events before, I have thought about starting art jams again. However, being where I am and how far away I am from most of my friends, I don't think I would be able to lure everyone down here to do that again. We shall see.
I am starting to pick back up on my art a bit more lately. Now that stress seems to be leveling out a bit I find myself wanting to get more and more pencil on paper action and start getting better at doing such. I've been pestering my friends for advice, lessons, critiques and whatnot on how to get better at my art. (Thank you all! You know who you are!) I've also been spending money I don't really have on art books as well as looking up references and practicing on killing old bad habits. We shall see how this turns out.
Still studying and going to school. Again for those that know me, my main goal is to get up to the bay area. And for those who know me even better, know that now I have an even greater reason for why I want to be up there. Still working towards my certifications, but they are getting closer by the day as my skills and knowledge seem to improve more and more. Wish me luck!
Money is going to be very tight. Tighter than it was before, but I'm in a good place to set my plans in motion. It may mean less time for myself and more time busting my ass off, but if that is what it takes, then that is what I'll do.
So I know this is going to be a huge fuck load of TL;DR for almost all of you, and that is cool I've done that myself.... lots of times. But that is what is going on with me in a long, drawn out nut-shell.
Wish me luck. Take care, and later days!
