Well, it's been almost a year since I really said anything, so I thought I'd say what has been happening to me this past 11 months. Pretty much I'm still struggling with my Anxiety and Depression, but I think I'm managing it fine. Got fired from my job at the town Gas Station earlier this year, but that's fine because I got a job at a Walmart in a nearby town. Pays better, better hours(even though I work until 11 at night and sometimes don't get home until almost midnight), and the job keeps me busy. Been there for almost 6 months now. As you can see from the photos in my gallery, I got a new Kitty. Teddy has been a lot of fun to have, but lately he wants to go outside more often, so we set up a leash system that allows him to explore outside around the front porch. Also, as a Siamese mix, he has gotten WAY more talkative. It's cute sometimes, but others it's annoying. Speaking of photos, I've gotten a bit more into Photography, and plan to make it more a part of my artistic endeavors. As for other artistic ambitions, the house I'm going to be living in while here is almost done(only took almost 1 1/2 years XD), so soon I'll have a place to work on my stuff. I plan to do more traditional pieces, like painting and pastels, and also digital works. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I finally got a Wacom Cintiq like I always wanted. Once my Studio/Office is ready, I can start using it. Plus, with the money I'm making now, I can afford to get things like Photoshop.
I've got a lot of ideas stored on my laptop, ready to get started on when I get the chance. T-shirts, OC's and FC's, foods and sweets, games, movie ideas, just a whole bunch. I'm also still working on learning how to compose music, so I should hopefully have some music out too. I turned 30 this year, and it isn't so bad, but it isn't great either. I was really hoping that this point in my life would be better for me. I really wanted to already have a lot of work and experience under my belt by now, and maybe even have a special someone to call my girlfriend/fiancée/wife. I really hope that being 30 and just now getting things going doesn't affect me to bad, as it's been a strong source of my Anxiety and Depression. But anyway, something else I've been working on is a fakedex. I've been coming up with some new Fakemon ideas, and doing my best to try and put them in a competent style dex. It hasn't been easy, since I'm trying to make sure to balance things like dex size, type amounts, single and double typing levels, evolution stage amounts, etc. The region is supposed to be based of my home state of California, but I'm also adding in stuff from other Western states as well. I'd say it's almost halfway done by now. A few of my old designs and plenty of new ones will be added.
Well, that's pretty much all I can say about the last almost full year. I've had my ups and downs, and it's been hard not getting a chance to be creative like I want. Still, I'm glad things are going a bit better for me, and hopefully very soon I'll have the life I've wanted for a while. If you want to ask any specific questions, have any well wishing to give, or something like that, just say it down in the comments. Thanks to everyone who still watches me being patient, and all those who have started to watch me in hopes of seeing something new and good from me. Until next time, C'ya. =3
