Small Life Update

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 20, 2018, 11:55 AM

Hey there, guys! It's probably been long enough, so I'm gonna go ahead and give a little update on things over here.

As of last week, I have been hired by a Sears warehouse where my brother-in-law works at in Santa Clarita, which is fantastic news for me. After my background check and drug test, I'll be starting on September 4th. It pays 14/hour, which isn't a whole lot in California since everything is expensive here, but it is at least a start for me and an opportunity to get more work experience. Bearing that in mind, I don't know when I'll be going back to Arizona yet, but I'm guessing it'll be whenever my job at Sears ends. 

My overall goals remain unchanged. I still want to gain some more independence, which means saving up and being able to pay rent for a place somewhere eventually. Having a job also means I'll be able to gain residency here and finally start learning how to drive. Apparently, at the DMV they require residency proof before I get my learner's permit, which is understandable I guess. Still, it means I'm finally on my way to achieving that goal. 

Commissions are still going very slowly, but I have not forgotten about them. I still won't open any more commissions until the current batch is all done. However, something I'm thinking of doing eventually is making little sculpted trinkets to sell. Don't know when yet, hopefully soon, but definitely after I finish my commissions so they're not hanging over me and so current clients don't wait much longer. As to where I'll sell stuff is still up in the air, but I'm gonna give it a go and feel things out. Plus, I've been wanting to get back to sculpting anyway.

Anyway, I think that's about the gist of what's been going on. Hope you all are doing well, and I'll keep updating as things progress.

So, I'm gonna give Eclipse a chance. Let's see how I feel in a few days or so, trying out all the features and ins and outs, and I'll write a full journal about it. But here are my first impressions: it's shit.

I've been on a roll with these videos lately, trying to get to a certain point before Halloween.

Also forgot to show this off two weeks ago: 
We're now half way through the whole series!
Tiny update for those wondering:

There's been a lot of talk about Sears filing for bankruptcy for quite a while. Well, today that was confirmed. But they are filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which basically means they're gonna try to reform as quick as they can by the end of the year, but for me and the others at the warehouse it's business as usual. So, we'll see how things change in the coming months.

I also noticed an unauthorized charge on my account from Adobe, labeled on the statement as ADOBE *EXPORTPDF SUB. Apparently I'm not the only one that got hit with this fraudulent transaction, from what I've looked up. Hopefully the dispute I'm filing through my bank will clear that up and I can get my money back. Jesus Christ, Adobe... =.=

Other than that inane bullshit, things are still going well. Still, slowly but surely working up funds to support myself.
Here's a new SMA video I helped make for Dub Matters! Enjoy!
