It's going to be a few-pronged message, so prepare your minds for greatness.
I'll begin with one that's been on my heart. And that's a sincere, and deep thank you to everybody that has watched me, favorited an art, friended me, or even taken a moment to glance upon my art. I honestly can't thank you guys enough for all the love, support, and attention that I've received over all this time from you guys. I seriously love you all. And...likely, I'll be gettin' more commissions soon. But why...that'll be another part to this.
And Holy crap...I'm excited. I've finally gotten my big break. I.C.Stars has accepted me into their program, meaning yes, I finally have a job. If you missed my previous journal about it, I'll be working for the city, non-profit organizations around Chicago, and for Fortune 500 companies, working in a team to fulfill technology needs, and I'll be getting a nice 150 buck paycheck a week. Finally, things are gonna be moving forward. Thanks for all your wll-wishing for me.
But yeah, that leads right into my recent quiet/absence. I know I keep saying it, but I'll say it again. Been busy, as, crap. It's been nuts lately. I've been working on getting this job, which in and of itself was CRAZY. 4 applications, 3 interviews, 3 essays. That was just plain taxing. And a entire month of effort. But of course, that wasn't the only thing I've been up to. Entertaining Noah's father when he came out here for a few days, getting prepared to move out. (Still don't like him, greedy douche is keeping a tab on me...despite the fact that I'm poor and he makes 400+ an hour. >.> Kindness of the heart? What's that?) Anyways, yeah that in itself lasted a few days. He was out here helping Noah get back into school (He's mandated by law, not because he wants to.) As well as helping us get the financial ends of moving into our new place. So we've also been out apartment shopping. Even at home, I've been spending loads of time packing and organizing things to get ready to move out of this craptastic place. Oh and we are definitely moving up.
Especially since I'm moving out and we're going right on the lakefront. Instead of a Studio apartment for 1125...soon to be 1325 a month, it'll be a 1 bedroom for 985 a month. Not to mention it's in PRIME location so all of that' gonna be so awesome.
By now, Noah's gotten her own laptop and a solid fursona, so expect to be seeing a cute black wolf around here sometime soon, whenever she gets around to making her own Inkbunny. She even has her own laptop now, so I'll get to be on my own more often, thankfully.
Thank you, I love you. I've managed to get a job. I've still been stupidly busy as of late, but hopefully it'll be different. I'm getting to move out of here soon. I'm happy. Yes. Genuinely happy. The winds of change are blowing...let's just hope they keep going the right way. <3
