I haven't posted in a while on here. I figure I should update the journal, though. I got a new job, working at Walgreens. I really like it so far. I'm hoping to move up from front end to Photo, maybe be a specialist. Maybe one day move up to Shift Lead or Assistant Manager... that'd be nice.

I'd love to be a manager.

I work between 30-40 hours a week now, so my paycheck is pretty decent. With my GF's help we should be able to afford bills when we get out on our own, at the very least! That's exciting.

I've been on iScribble a lot lately, after a long hiatus. Apparently now they allow roleplaying again, so that's fun! I've been trying to get Drawing Games back up in popularity too. Mostly I just make new boards when existing ones are full and make one when there isn't one. It's fun to participate too. I'll make a sketch dump of the stuff I've saved at some point.

Most of my "unfinished" or sketchy stuff goes on Tumblr now. If you're interested in keeping up with my art on there as well, I have a Just-For-Art blog, and that's at This Blog (it's a clickable link.) I'm going to attempt to post more stuff here and stay a little more active as well. 

My Birthday's coming up next month. I'm going to be 23. Combine that with a job I don't hate and animals that I love, life is going pretty okay right now. I'm not medicated for my anxiety anymore but I'm able to cope with it most days. Sometimes I get sick though. My eyes also aren't as good as they used to be. Probably going to have to get glasses, if I ever have a day off when the doctor is in.

How's things for you guys?

Probably don't have much right to comment, seeing as I haven't spoken to you in about 20 aeons.

But it's been interesting, third year of high school's done, nursing's being fun, especially the two weeks of summer work practice in the ECU.

Gonna take a driver's test soon, and it's nice to see that you've been doing better! ^u^

Glad to hear nursing is going well! Good luck with your drivers test! :)

Congrats on the job! :iconsweethugplz:

And on not needing the meds anymore. :la:

Doing pretty well on my end. I started a new "short story" on Woohooligan that's so far 13 double-sized pages. That makes it currently twice as long as my longest other story to date (Nerdgasm), and I guess at 24 pages, it's long enough already to fit an industry-standard weekly comic format. :la: People seem to be liking it so far -- about a midwestern girl's adventures in Heaven and Hell.

Oh and I started a Patreon page that's doing pretty well! Getting ready to break the $20 milestone in another dollar or so.

Thank you! And I wouldn't say that I don't need the medication anymore, but more like I probably should be medicated but I'm managing to make myself do stuff despite being nauseatingly anxious about everything.

Luckily my boss takes my anxious over-preparing for meticulous pride in my work, so on the job front that's fine. 

Sounds like you're doing really well with Woohooligan and your Patreon! Where all do you advertise your comics? Tumblr might appreciate the humor you show in your strips.

Well that's a step in the right direction! :D Have you been practicing any kind of CBT exercises for the anxiety? Most people can eventually overcome the anxiety with enough practice.

I had been advertising through Project Wonderful but have stopped in the last couple weeks due to financial issues... I paid for a consultation a little while ago with Brad Guigar (the Evil Inc guy), who recommended that I not pay for advertising at all, but that just seems silly. He at the same time was telling me that the bounce rate on my site was way too high for having a smaller number of returning visitors, which is contrary to him telling me to not pay for advertising, since that's where I got the majority of people who would do an archive-binge and ostensibly were more likely to become regular readers afterward.

I still cross-post to Facebook, Twitter and DA... have never gotten around to Tumblr.
