I'm trying to remember how to write posts about myself on here. Hold on, you guys, this may take a couple of tries. I'm currently at work, but I'm taking a break at the moment. Oh god, I've been drawing playfields for five and a half hours. I need to rest these eyes sometimes, dang.

I'm not resting them right now though! No!

Humn. Life has been pretty good lately? I'm not sure where to really start, to be honest. I won't be going to school this semester because I want to focus on my new job and save up money, but I'll have to start paying my student loan off from CSUN. I don't mind, once that's paid off I'll be pretty debt free and that's something to live for.

I am thinking of going to the Design Concept Academy. It'll either be this fall semester or next semester, it really depends on how my finances look like. Now that I have money I am a little fickle about spending it (beyond mochas. God, I need to let up on the mochas. I say that as I sip one... )

I went to an art gallery showing this weekend with friends.
Drove around Alhambra.
Drove around Pasadena

I'm thinking we should go to the beach soon? The beach sounds nice, doesn't it? I feel I just don't know how to relax lately, so I just keep working. Working on work, working on my comic and other little drawings.

Speaking of art, I want to start drawing in sketchbooks more. My art is just feeling really strange and- well, hmm, I'm not sure if it's stagnating or I'm just feeling a little frustrated. I wish I could go ahead and just draw beautiful illustrations but finding the time has proven to be difficult. I'm still getting used to working forty hours a week, I suppose. You kind of have to shift your time around and sacrifice a little. I don't like to go out as often anymore and I want to be a little more frugal, seeing how expensive gas is getting...

... but I still want to go to the beach.

So yeah, art. Art art art, my life is about art. Who would have thought? If I saw myself oh- four years ago, I don't know if I'd see myself as the same person.
Time flies and I'm- well, I'm pretty much older than a lot of my friends now. That's okay. I want to do stuff that makes me happy, I want to work on my story and just do what it takes to get myself out there and enjoy myself.

This post had purpose and meaning but I honestly forgot what it was.
I need to practice drawing more, that's for sure- on paper, I mean. I can't believe how different I draw on one medium to another.

I want a studio! Well, I want somewhere where I can watercolor. I love watercoloring, but it's super hard to find the time to do it, isn't it...

Gosh, I'm sorry this is so broken up. Talk to me! I hope you guys are doing well.

My new job is lovely and I'm really happy with it and I hope they keep me and, and and-
I might ask Macy's to put me On-Call. Macy's is where I normally worked until now, but I can't even imagine going back to Macy's after working here. I still want to keep the job so I can have my benefits and discounts, but they're trying to hock 20 hours out of me in the coming weeks and I don't think I can really do that!! I'm working 40 hours at my other job!!

I.
I really hope they keep me.
I hope I'm a good employee and I hope they see potential in me and I hope I hope I hope I hope.

I told myself that if
I stabilize and keep my job
and get everything in order

I'll start my webcomic finally.
I'm so scared and I really have been finalizing things about it lately but right now I'm so scared.

Here's some drawings I did today/recently :

New Years Resolution

I want to finish works, I want to have a professional mindset when it comes to art. I want to improve myself and be happy with who I am and what I do.

Work

Let's not talk about that.

School
I do not think I can afford it this semester, but I've decided to step up my game and enroll in the Concept Design Academy in Pasadena, CA. Unfortunately the classes are really expensive, but if I work really had at work and save money and pay off bills I think I can really do this. I'm still hoping for an internship at a local company, but I might branch out more too.

I'm hoping to branch out to do game concept work, interface design, and pretty much wherever these drawing hands can take me.

Concept Design Academy

My class schedule for my local school is currently as follows:
- Figure Drawing (retake)
- Watercolor (retake)

No new classes this semester, just going to try to enhance craft. Craft? Can I call this craft?
I think I might drop out of roleplay altogether too, mostly to just keep myself focused and alert. Work, School, Career hunting.

Maybe at some point this year I'll even go on conceptart.org and post a sketchbook...

Car Payment

I know this post is already really disjointed but I'm about to disjoint it even more with saying that I had the greatest scare of the day so far in terms of my car payment. Oh my goodness. I thought my car payment was due today, but no! It was due yesterday, so Ford scolded me by telling me PAYMENT PAST DUE in red, large letters and basically they added this current month's payment with next month's payment and seeing 600 dollars due on a car payment is enough to give anyone a heart attack. (Unless you drive a lexus and that is just the standard monthly payment on those fuckers.)

Man, I can't wait for tax refund time.

I need to pick up more hours and try to find time to draw while working. My art... I don't know how to feel about you, but I really want to push you to the limits. Please allow met o do such.
