Not sure for how long, though.
Hey loves! It's been around a month and some change since I've started working at Starbucks. While the retail world isn't my cup of tea, I do manage to have fun at the job. There are some complaints I have, but I'm going to wait until the stupid 90-day probation is over to voice my concerns. =___=
I actually miss creating art. And then, I usually end up either too depressed or too tired to work on anything. It's painful. I ended up buying a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, which kind of forces me to try to get my money's worth but... hhh.
I posted some updated on Patreon about where I'm going with this whole art thing. I've scripted the first chapter of the Rose for Shurinai relaunch and have started thumbnailing pages. As much as I'd like to release the pages on a steady schedule, I fear that that's not going to be the case. I still want to get back to the point where creating is fun, because I mean.. that'd be cool, right? If I feel that way about creating, maybe I'd release more! Or.. something!
I did update the $20 Patron thing to get a bunch of cool stuff, like original sketch cards and buttons in the mail! But... haha who honestly...........*curls up*
I don't know. I actually feel a bit down. Empty, almost. I'm still mentally recovering from this crap with my boss mistreating me and the car accident. I feel stuck. I dread fall/winter season in retail. I feel like... helpless at points. I mean.. I got Spearmint back! But.. I basically blew my disability check getting the car back. If not for the job I have, I'd be screwed in 6 different languages. I honestly forgot why I was writing this journal to begin with. I just feel... so stressed and down in the dumps for some reason, and to top it off I'm getting sick more often...??? Like... ugh.
My primary goal is finally getting a comfortable, safe place for Brittu and me to live in. We're having conversations with a close friend about possibly rooming. I have to get financially stable enough to be able to make that big of a leap.
Secondly, I want to get back into the groove of creating. Drawing, animating, making games, all that good stuff. I miss the thrill of seeing my hard work come to life.
Third would be... I don't know...? Getting these communities I run in order? I don't know, I kind of miss people.
That's about it for now. Gosh, I know this isn't the kind of journal you guys were looking forward to. I'm so sorry. T_T
I hope to have a way more light-hearted journal in the works for you guys. In the meantime, please be safe this week. Love you!!
