Hey everyone.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well over a year since the last journal, yeah. Haven’t been around much outside of faving and the occasional post (I’m sorry for that). I’ve missed so many birthdays, anniversaries and the like (Again, sorry for that). It’s been far too long since I’ve updated this journal thing and I thought it was just about due.

Things outside of the online realm are going okay for the most part, and not too much has changed. I’ve calmed down quite a bit with age. Any comments or replies I’ve made haven’t had the same amount of enthusiasm they’ve had (spontaneous silliness, liberal use of exclamation marks, etc.). Not sure if I’m losing interest in things or if I’m simply growing up and becoming more boring as a result of that. :shrug: I’ve also moved apartments during this time. …Twice. I rather like the new place - it’s very clean and bright-looking, like a home and not a college dorm. My Camry and laptop were lost to Hurricane Harvey, so that slowed me down in the worst possible ways, though both have been replaced since, so good news there. For the car, I’m now the proud owner of a Ford Escape. The thing is much roomier and at a slightly higher profile which is nice as I feel more secure (and comfortable) in my driving. Sure I miss my Camry, but hey, change is inevitable and I like what I’m driving now. As for the laptop, while it’s still technically operational (as long as it’s plugged into an outlet), it, along with encouragement from my folks, did give me the proper kick in the pants towards finally got a new computer. I’ll now be working on a desktop Mac at the time of this journal. Still a single guy and…well, that’s just okay - not much to say there. Still have a stable job (close to 5 years running by the way), so I’m still able to pay the bills, so yay there. My 11-year-old cat’s become very sickly and has lost much of her weight, but she’s still hanging around seeming to be in good spirits and with plenty of love to share. Art-wise, regrettably, has made little change or desirable progression as I’m still trying to shake off some baggage that just doesn’t seem to want to leave. It’s still very taxing to even pick up a pencil and the once enjoyable past time I hoped to turn into a career is little more than a chore… BUT, even after this all-too-long stagnancy, I’m still hopeful it will turn around. I don’t know where or even how said turn-around will go as the future is far too hazy to tell, but I still sketch here and there, so I’m not completely rusty and it does present itself as a faint glimmer of hope. Who knows?

I guess that’s it for now. Hope to keep in better touch with everyone.

Thank you to everyone and anyone for taking the time to read this.

Until next journal, bye for now. :thanks:
