LET'S PUT UP SOMETHING THAT WASN'T FROM DECEMBER, OKAY!? Okay? Okay. Update: Updates, but not enough to merit their own journal, so I'll bolden sentences where there are updates.
My last final was June 26th, and with commencement out of the way before then, I have now done what was expected of me, and graduated basic highschool. When the summer is over I'll get a job and start saving up for university.
And with June gone over a week ago... I haven't done much :I
Well, I have. Kind of. I feel it's kind of depressing though.
Lots of sleeping in, starving(partly because of lazy and partly because SO MANY MINIWHEATS I DON'T LIKE), and it's been too damn hot out. It's supposed to go to 29 Celsius on Wednesday, too.
(That's about 84 Fahrenheit, for those who may be Celsius-challenged.)
I've actually been drawing a lot (at least, no less than I usually draw, since my wrist wants to kill me the same as it did before). Why I haven't been uploading it here is kind of a cycle. Also partly because lazy. Incoming hypocritical rant! I tried to draw this as a comic, but then my wrist started killing me and it turned out horrible anyway.
A few times my older brother told me to open art commissions, and I told him - no! Why?
Because I don't have a way to receive money, the one thing that I could actually legitimately use. Because I feel I am not good enough at making pretty pictures to attract someone's attention in the first place. Because there are so many more people out there who need the money (or alternatively, "need" the points), who draw much better and/or are possibly willing to work for cheaper. Out of the... you? Less-than-thirty people who like my art enough to watch, a few don't even frequent the site anymore, and over half of you I know well enough to know that you don't have the money/points/desire to ask for something anyway. Not to mention my uploading habits aren't well and good enough to say to someone that I actually get stuff done in a decent or timely fashion.
Why haven't I been uploading then, said the older brother - I draw a lot, there's tons of material to upload, why not upload it?
I told him, because GASP, I like feedback, and I seem to get much more of it by uploading to dropbox and showing the TTK forum chat, as opposed to uploading here and praying.
I don't get very much feedback because I don't have very many watchers and... although I'm thankful for every single watch, guys, a watch alone doesn't tell me what is liked and where I can improve, see? And having more than one person being so generous as to give me input at all would be awesome. (Additionally many of the over-half of you I know semi-well I can access and speak to live through that forum chat, so whether or not you guys do care enough to come here and tell me what they think, you also know you can see more up-to-date stuff elsewhere.)
I don't have very many watchers because a) my "art" isn't good, and/or b) I don't upload enough.
Wash rinse repeat. I'm fully aware I'm a massive hypocrite in this regard, especially since I don't comment very much on other people's pictures and writings... But I have trouble doing that in the first place, let alone for people I only know as "exists." Slash excuse.
He says I need to draw some twelve-feet-tall buff guys. Which I do, and hopefully will, at some point. Update: Started trying to practice what he calls "Olympic Athlete" buff guys, which is a good step out of the comfort zone.
Rant out of the way...
The reason I'm not getting a job until the end of summer is, well - my mom's going to allow it. She's going to let me remain unemployed so that I can more readily help the family prepare for the not-so-big move to a different neighborhood.
I'm also becoming a little more invested in gender politics. I don't know if that's the actual term for it though. I'm on the side of people's human rights. I won't go into detail here though, this isn't a gender politics website. Update: I won't be preaching about this unless you piss me off about it though.
I started my Animal Crossing: Wild World again on Friday. I caught so many fish. And I paid off my first two loans, too. But I can't do much more until Nook's reopens tomorrow. :C And Roald is so annoying.
If I can find the 3DS maybe I can do the Wi-Fi thing. I'm not gonna go looking right now if nobody can/wants to Wi-Fi Wild World as well, though - I don't want to locate it in the one expressed interest of finally multiplayer Animal Crossing and then find out there's nobody who can/wants to play with me. Update: After I got an offer for this is when I found out that I can't Wi-Fi Wild World even with a 3DS. Raaaage. I'll have to wait until I get New Leaf.
Aside from that, I want to do something nice. I don't know what nice thing to do though. Well, I have ideas, but not the motivation, where-with-all or whatever to actually go through with any of them. Was thinking requests, but I didn't even finish all of my last batch. Update: If you want me to draw something you can totally still ask though. I just might decline, or accept and then never get around to it. I want to be nicer though!
's been having their Hiatus, which is going to be over in less than two weeks, if no more extensions are applied. So I really need to get on top of things for that. If I haven't replied to/started a note RP with you yet when I said I would, sorry! ;~; It's really mostly my procrastination. I fare much better with more real-time live RP's, I think, since I don't have forever and a day to reply. And if I said I'd do something else for you and haven't yet, I'll try and get to it, starting tomorrow.
I will make myself.
Cross my Dorado that's sitting in my house waiting to be sold.
Also, Road to El Dorado is still an awesome movie.
Update: Life is getting more in the way than I had hoped, so for now I've left the group. I may want to join again in the future when things are faring better. But Road to El Dorado is still an awesome movie.
I wanted to make livestreaming a thing as opposed to a thought, but then lazy. Plus streaming online looks way less straightforward than it actually should be (or is - I'm kind of an idiot like that!). If it does eventually become a thing, I'll probably take requests through that more readily.
Maybe when I get to uploading more I'll do one of those, number'th deviation celebratory things. Update: Noticed that my deviation count according to my stats is 99 Deviations. I'm fairly sure that includes journals, as actually going to my stats says 73. So which 100th should I celebrate with a special deviation?
And maybe when I'm done with this journal I'll upload another character ref - I've actually got ten of them done total, including the three I've uploaded here. Hey maybe there's something I can do! Something else to say HEY I'M NOT DEAD YET. Update: Doing a revamp to my current refs to be less plain and show more, starting first and foremost with my little Pokemon Trainer. Dunno when that'll be up but you'll know when it is.
So, uh... I'll try to be actually engaging and interesting now. My foot fell asleep.
Damnit. I could've sworn tingly-shenanigans would be interesting.
Let's end this off on a slightly-more-friendly note. How are you doing? Are you doing well?
Don't tell me you're doing good, unless you're doing good things. Because grammar. Update: Only two people answered at all, haha. ILU~
And now pizza dogs!
