Wow, I'm falling down on the job with keeping my page updated, aren't I
Well, belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you regardless, hope 2016 is off to a good start for all of you.
As for me, it's been fine. Still doesn't really feel like a new year to me just yet
Anyways, on to the update. There's no real point in me keeping that old journal up since it's a little past time to be able to sign on to the Secret Santa event now XD
Brief overview of my 2015;
Mom got a new job.
Finished up my schooling up in my old hometown... not officially, I mean I didn't get a degree or nothing, just the last of the classes I was taking at the university up there.
Which brings me to the biggest thing to happen to me: Moving! Yep, we still haven't gotten 100% moved down yet, but found a place for us to stay, and got most of the big boxes and stuff out of the way so that my dad can finish renovations... Which is also why it's been so slow on the art front... well, slower than usual anyways. Lack of art supplies can do that to a person
I also somehow lost the pen for my drawing tablet, so I can't even do anything digitally right now
I ordered a replacement, but it's not due to show up much before next month
Started at a Community College down here to kill some time while I established residency so tuition at the big university isn't astronomical for me... turns out thanks to the pre-paid college plan that my grandparents got me, it automatically gives me residancy since the company is out of the same state, really wish I had known that sooner
But that's cool, had a lot of fun in the class and I made a lot of good friends.
Got a job... for all of 2 weeks XD It paid good, but with my messed up shoulder and all I couldn't keep up with the workload that they were demanding of me. It was with UPS as a seasonal worker, and they picked me up right around the time Christmas was rolling around, so it was absolute madness at the warehouse. the job just turned out to be a little more physical than what I'm capable of handling right now. Maybe if I had a different position instead of loading the trucks I might have been fine, but it's whatever. Still looking for a replacement job in the meantime.
I was addicted to Fallout 3 for a while there after I saw the announcement for Fallout 4, so that really didn't help with my productivity at all.
And I FINALLY managed to weed through all of my Devwatch messages
They were getting pretty out of control for a while there
Hopefully now I can keep up with them better.
Oh, did I mention that my baby nephew was born too? Did I ever mention that I was going to have a nephew in the first place? lol, well now you know
That's it for the most part. A lot went on last year. The biggest thing was the move I think. Even though we still aren't technically settled in anywhere/have a new house or anything like that yet, the hardest part is transitioning back into the big city lifestyle. It's not a big-big city like New York or LA, but it's a far cry from the little dot on the map where we used to live. Sure we lives in the same area beforehand, but I pretty much grew up in a small town, so it's a bit of culture shock now coming back to the area as an adult. It'll be interesting to see how this all pans out.
Anyways, my DA goals for this year:
Start uploading artwork more regularly. It might just be once or twice a week, but that's a whole hell of a lot more than I have been submitting lately isn't it? XD Also what I do upload is likely just going to be sketches for the most part until I either get my new tablet pen, or until I can find a new studio/we get moved in to a new house and I can get my art supplies back. I've refrained from doing so in the past because I didn't want to clutter up my gallery with a bunch of sketches, but for lack of having anything really outstanding to share now I feel like something is better than nothing at this point. I would really like to start getting more watchers and attention to the projects I'm working on right now.
Some of those projects include; redesigning the main characters for my main book... working on revisions for my main book in general... starting a graphic novel/s... a collaborative advice youtube channel with some of my friends in which I am co-simi- animator and voice actor... probably going to share some other stories I'm bound to start working on in my spare time... the list goes on. I've had a lot of inspiration lately so I've got a lot of ideas. I hope I'm able to get them all done this time too.
My next semester of school starts on Tuesday, it's basically the same creative writing class, just with a slightly different group of individuals. As far as I know I should still see a lot of familiar faces though, so that just means more fun for me
I think that pretty much sums it all up in terms of updates for the time being. I have a little something I'll submit just to start getting some new things up in my gallery. It might be slow going for a while here, but I really do have a lot of things I've been meaning to share.
So until my next major update, later
