#MatsMessage we all have done damage to ourselves or others in one way or another. Trying to repair that damage is impossible as it will remain in our memories. It's like a scar, it'll heal, but it always leaves a mark behind. All you can do is accept that it's there and move on.
#MatsMessage Instead of dwelling on the past, look to the future. Clinging to days of yesteryear can put bad influences in you and blind you to what really lies ahead. Revisiting memories is fine, but don't try to live in the past. Yesterday is history, but tomorrow is a mystery.
#MatsMessage Doing something is fine, but doing it too much or for too long is another thing. Getting engrossed in something may lead to more important or helpful things going by and then more problem arise from it. Details are hazy when you get too lazy.
Those big yellow chickens are starting to get to me >_<; I find them more useful than driving now.
I'm wonder if maybe instead of a Ko-fi, I could have made a GoFundMe account. I dunno, just saw it and thinking out my rear on it.
#MatsMessage If you enjoy something, don't let someone else ruin that for you. If you hate someone but you both like the same thing, don't let that someone influence how you feel about it. They don't own it, so they can't say you can't enjoy it. If you like, they can take a hike!
#MatsMessage It's easy to blame someone based on their choices, but it's smart to take time to think as to why they made those choices. What if you or possibly others like you had a hand in those choices being made? You might be just as guilty as they are. Pinning blame is lame!
#MatsMessage If someone makes something, it takes time and effort to make it. Take time to appreciate those. Let them know that they did their best, whether in success or failure, even if you don't like it. After all, something's still better than nothing. Appreciate, don't hate!
Well here's hoping today goes better. Maybe I'll even get something I paid for to help lighten the mood today too.
Let's face it, pretty sure you only want fanarts, not video thumbnails. I doubt it's going to make any real difference. I dunno, maybe I'm getting too secretive and sucking at it.


I think maybe I can get a little lenient. So.... while I rather put my stuff up on Fanart Central, I think I can allow SOME of my stuff on here again. No OC stuff, mine or anyone else's, won't post ANY of those on here. Same if I ask anyone to draw my characters. Other fanart stuff, I think is acceptable.

I'm gonna post a few of my more recently made pics in between my thumbnail uploads. So thumbnail today, pic tomorrow. With one exception today
(Update's at the bottom)

Sorry but I just feel I need to vent a little. Been not so ok, yet also ok at the same time. It's basically that I was planning to make a bunch of changes this year, overall, in life offline, and for doing stuff with my content online. Yet despite all these.... I just feel like by now I've hit a bit of a brick wall. Like, those changes I want to make, things out of my control just don't want me to get anywhere. Here's what I've been trying so far this year.

New PC: I think I brought this up, but if not, I have purchased a custom-built Dell XPS 8930 pc that arrived in January. It unfortunately continued to overheat under load to very unsafe temperatures and after the first week, it just started to go even further downhill in performance. Even so, it has this issue where trying to capture microphone audio caused a bunch of static to form.

Employment: I think I might be screwed out of this one for a long time. I used to be employed but I chose to resign due to pretty much being treated unfairly. Not like being abused or forced to work in poor conditions, but rather, like how I feel right now, I wasn't getting anywhere with that job and everyone else was. I wasn't being given a chance to do more or get more hours. In fact, it's because they were hiring more part timers WITH those hours that drew the line. Who wants to bet they were actually glad to be rid of me? .... anyway, that has nothing to really do with it as that was back in 2017. I had landed a volunteer position elsewhere while job searching nearly 2 months ago. (it was so I had another reference point for if I did find something.) I was forced to resign due to two factors. Two shifts in, I had that sick episode where I had blood coming out when I had to go, forcing me to miss a LOT of my scheduled shifts. (We still think it was food poisoning that caused it) The other reason was since I'm still unable to drive myself legally, (or in general) I can't really get around considering I don't live within city limits. In other words, most of the time, I'm pretty much stranded at home with near zero chance to get out and do something. Heck, I can't even get time to go out to practice driving. This is by far the biggest part of the brick wall here.

Art: I might be getting a little better, but I feel like when I try to improve or try things different, it doesn't feel like I'm getting anywhere. At this point, it doesn't feel like I can enjoy doing pics anymore, it gets too... well, more like monotonous work. Moreso when you do something for someone and they treat you and it like crap when you went out of your way to do it, even if it's something or someone they really like. This was more or less the trigger for this, as I've been attempting to work with that old Huion tablet. I got that one really good pic out of it back in 2017 but back then, I didn't have my pc's current issues, which I STILL say that Steam Link device damaged it somehow. Anyway, now it's been giving me a bit of trouble when I attempt to use it. It lags a lot at the start of using it, I can't use the proper drivers for it, and the receiver seems to do something to just utterly cripple my pc by slowing EVERYTHING when plugged in. (I have it plugged in directly) I really want to enjoy it cause I'm finally getting to my OC updates and redesigns too. There's also the fact that I refuse to put my actual pics on here cause this place sucks ass just like Shi--, I mean, Twitter.

Youtube: Let's face it, I'm pretty sure my channel should have been considered dead after Shantae and the Pirate's Curse back in 2015 when I got my XPS 8700. I even wonder if I'm gonna be getting anywhere with it now. Heck, I'm partially amazed I don't have a bunch of toxic idiots telling me my shit sucks and to off myself considering how everyone acts online the past few years. (I am serious, I've seen some vids where people commented with actual threats) I've wanted to do more, but nowadays, if you don't have a speed higher than 5 Mbps or a cult following since before 2010, you can't do pretty much anything worth getting views. *insert me being salty here* I was never after getting somewhere as big as youtube celeb status, but at least more than averaging 1-3 views. I can't even do Twitch cause of how my location isn't allowed any good online, and I really do want to have Twitch and stream games alongside recording playthroughs. To make content to share online and have others check it out and enjoy it, to make stuff that says "I made this and I hope you enjoy the effort I put into it."


Ok, I think I've gotten my ranting out of the way. I've hit a wall, I want to push through it, but while I want to, I have to get that chance to, which I haven't had one at all since 2018 started. I almost wanted to say that I hit pretty much the lowest in my life, but it hasn't hit wildfire season yet so I don't know if it's yet to come or not. But I have this uneasy feeling that it will happen. But for now, hitting a brick wall is about the best I can put how I'm feeling life is going right now.


(Update): Welp, I just found out my tablet drivers were giving my pc a little trouble now too. I started getting some slowdown and error pop-ups after my last few attempts. Unplugged it and everything was fine. So looks like I hit another snag. Great.... I guess I'm stuck with my current method right now until I absolutely have to purchase a new pc.
