Man, I'm really getting tired of dealing with stupid crap here at my house and this week was yet another mentally exhausting week. I'm going to try to get out of here soon, maybe Monday if I can but that might be a little difficult. I found out yesterday that my fuel line for my car is leaking again. I just had that replaced last year or so and it's now leaking pretty bad, about a drop or two every second. Right when I was planning on leaving, my car decides to fall apart on me. So I'll be looking into that more so in the next coming days.
I also found out that while me and my dad go into town in his car to do grocery shopping, my eldest brother has been taking my car, essentially stealing it, behind my back. He doesn't even have a license (he used to but he still owes fines from several years ago). He's also been snooping around my stuff like my coin collection and I've been catching him stealing other stuff of mine like my Nintendo DS. I've had this problem with him in the past, well, I've almost always had this problem. He thinks everything is his and doesn't understand when you tell him otherwise and thinks it's okay to steal my stuff to hock so he can buy drugs and booze. I REALLY, don't need him being here. I can't even feel confident in keeping my belongings or even my car at my house. Looks like I'm going to have to start putting things into storage again. If I had the money, I'd be half-tempted to get a safe deposit box at a bank.
I got some minor chemical burns on my hands a few days ago. Since no one wanted to help out painting some of the parts to my mom's chicken coop (herself included), it was up to me to paint it. Not very fun painting lots of wood in 90+ degree weather but I'm used to doing manual labor and have the callouses to prove it. After getting some of the paint on my hands, I noticed weird little blisters started to form like I had been burned. I put it in the back of my head as I still had more painting to do and when I was close to done, I accidentally got more paint on my heads and more little blisters formed. So when I told my eldest brother and my mom about it and showed them what happened to my hands on contact with the paint, they just gave me a blank hollow look and said "okay". That's it. Luckily, the blisters are healing up and aren't causing me problems.
Had a little exciting incident today with my brother's dog that he's had here. He still doesn't take care of his dog but his dog has been handy at keeping away raccoons and possums. I heard the dog barking nonstop earlier today and eventually I came outside and I saw a 3 foot long black snake coiled around my brother's dog's leash getting ready to strike. I managed to get the snake away from my brother's dog but I have never seen a black snake that huge around here.
In other news, me and Professor Awesome have been working more on Demordicai Diamonds story and stuff as usual but I just can't work on the actual comic here at my house. If I can manage to get to Professor Awesome's house soon, I should be able to get some more artwork and maybe even a new comic page done. I've been really wanting to get some more artwork done as of late and it's been frustrating the crap out of me not being able to work on anything here.
Me and Professor Awesome have been having some trouble recently trying to come up with names for certain things, characters, species, places, and whatnot for Demordicai Diamonds. I've thought about doing some concept art, posting it, and asking for some advice with names though like most of my art projects, I can't say for certain whether or not I'll actually get to it. One thing that needs naming is an avian-style sentient species that we've been working on for a while. On the upside, we finally came up with an official name for Dalken's home country and the mountain range that it dominates. We even have a little more story ideas laid out but we just aren't very good at naming things well.
It's really hot out today and I'm feeling really sluggish. If I can get out of here soon, expect to see some more art out of me this coming week but if I can't leave here tomorrow, well, then it will probably be another week before I get a chance to get out of here. While I probably have more I can ramble on about, this heat is making me tired. So that's pretty much it for this journal. I hope everyone is dealing with the summer heat well and not melting!
