Belated Zebbie Update

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 13, 2013, 9:47 PM
Apparently it's been a while since I've updated my DA journal! A lot of changes have happened since November.

After nearly four years together, Sasha and I have broken up. Luckily, I think we can still be friends. This is really the only part that's holding me together. I've been having a really rough time because of this...

As a kind of side effect, my work ethic towards art has increased, mostly because I'm trying to distract myself from shitty shitty shit shit thoughts. So, there will definitely be more art on the way, as well as possible openings for commissions.

Stay tuned.

Home + Birthday + Weasyl + Commissions

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 3, 2012, 10:19 AM
I got back last night from my week-long vacation! I went to Disneyland with Sasha! YAY! It was great fun although there were a few snags. Poor Sasha could barely walk after half a day at Disneyland, but she still had fun. We also saw a taping of Craig Ferguson (November 15th, look for me in the crowd!) and a taping of Conan on Halloween. (I was sitting across the row from a guy dressed as Conan for Halloween.)

I was without internet for a week, but coming back to all these birthday messages gave me the warm fuzzies. <3 I turned 27 on wednesday! Eek! Thanks to everybody who wished me happy birthday here and on Facebook, FurAffinity and Twitter. You guys are so nice. :)

Also, if you didn't know, I'm on Weasyl:

ALSO ALSO Still taking commission requests here: www.portzebie.com/commish

Updates on your friendly, neighborhood Portzebie

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 8, 2012, 7:52 PM
I am going crazy.

About two years ago I got a promotion at work that gave me a lot of extra responsibilities. A year later, I got another raise and in turn, more work to do every day. Since then, work has been draining the very essence of my soul.

Some of you may know that I work in, of all places, a dental laboratory. More specifically, one that creates crowns, bridges, dentures, etc. for dentists across the country and around the world. My duties in my department include data entry for the first half of the day and for the second half I help the rest of the shipping department package our products and ship them out. However, with my raise last year I started learning how to input more elaborate data into our computer system, namely implant products.

Implants are basically permanent dentures. We make the denture and affix them to metal posts that are screwed into the patient's mouth. Each case we receive is unique and I have to enter them all into the system. Each case we get takes me about ten minutes to type in all the seperate part numbers and codes and to make sure each case is absolutely correct before I move it on to the rest of the lab. I get roughly 30 of these to do every day, which is about five hours of very, very, VERY tedious and focused and never-ending brain-taxing work. For a year now, I've come home as a zombie and end up vegging out for a few hours before I go to sleep and wake up and go back to work etc etc. I can't focus on doing anything except work, food and sleep...

As a consequence of all this, my art drive is basically at a zero. It pains me so much that I have all these commissions that I need to finish backlogged since more than a year ago... I really wish that I could focus on artwork because it gives me so much joy and happiness. I wish that I didn't get so stressed out about all this but I can't help it.

If you've made it this far, I really appreciate it, I know most people don't bother reading shit on the internet, especially journals/blog posts such as this. I've been majorly stressed out for a long time and Sasha has been really helping me lately on alleviating my stress, she loves me and I love her so much and I'm so grateful for her.

I don't know what to do anymore about my job. It's stressful and taxing but it pays well and gives me full benifits and 401k and all that fun stuff. I really like the people I work with too. I really just need a nice, long vacation from the dental indsutry.

I aim to draw this weekend and hope to actually make something substantial. Nothing feels better than creating. I just want to be able to focus on doing that and try to get over all this stress.

Thank you all for reading and letting me vent. Thanks to all my friends, whom I've been slowly talking to again and thanks, most of all, to Sasha for being such a wonderful person. <3

Hey everybody, I'd like to thank you all for the watches, comments and faves I've been getting lately! I'm so glad that my dA page is finally getting some action.

APPARENTLY SUBMITTING THINGS TO GROUPS IS IMPORTANT

In other news, I got myself a new tablet the other day. It's an Intuos4! Finally, I've joined this century in tablet technology. My old tablet's pen had worn out and it was only $40 more to upgrade the whole thing. I finished that most recent Lexi picture with it! :)

Back on deviantART with more stuff! HOPE YOU ENJOY

Now that I've got a better interent connection, dA isn't such a pain in the ass for me. It seriously used to take up to fifteen minutes to post ONE picture. (Hence why my dA gallery is so sparse.) I might be uploading old art in the coming weeks, watch out for it!

Thanks to everybody for the watches and comments and faves, I really appreciate it. :)

You can find me in the Dealer's Den, glued to a table for three days and perhaps meandering around when the Den is closed. I'll also be co-hosting a (hopefully more informational than last year's) Adult Art panel on saturday at 7 PM-ish. (Which is immediately after the SuperSponsor Dinner! I'll be there too.) I'll see if I can make it to the Art Jam that night as well. We'll see how it goes.

Hope to see you there!
