Jumping in graves

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 22, 2011, 9:51 AM
  • Listening to: Rabbia E Tarantella by Ennio Morricone
  • Reading: C++ programming papers
  • Watching: helicopters
  • Playing: The Godfather on mah PSP
  • Eating: chilled tofu, dericious
  • Drinking: coffeeeee


Posting here before my sub runs out. It's like embracing death. I quite like the new journal submission interface. •u•

EDIT: Thank you so much for the subscription, WTHat. I'll stay here until it runs out. <33

Hello! Wow it's like motherfucking ages since I wrote a journal here. Sorry for the inconsistent postings these days. I think I reached the ultimate stage of being an old person where routines and schedules have beaten my drawing time into a pulp. I spend most of my days doing freelance projects online and offline and being a total retard at any volunteer program I get invited to. I'd never thought I'd see the day when I have a 6 month gap in my DA journals, I mean like.. I used to check this place daily, haha woah mother of god.

I got hit by the work and life truck and haven't recovered since. tumblr and Twitter have taken over my life as well. I hardly draw these days but there are times when inspiration graces my empty head. I've been taking programming and language courses so my brain is kind of dead. I'm still saving up for eye surgery so I can qualify for my private pilot course. oohmygod I hope island life won't destroy my city-dwelling ass. Once I'm done there I'll be moving out of the country, hopefully when I travel I can obtain a job visa that will allow me to root myself in London or Spain. Closest is ORSTRAHLEAAA, land of my radical relatives. Either one is good, the future looks bright and I'm not looking back.

I'll be posting less here but you can always see me on tumblr, it's easier to upload stuff there *coughsimpleimagehostingcough* since I like a lot of things and it's full of inspiring stuff. It's easier for regular posting and writing random stuff that pops up in my head all the time. I'll be making a database/wiki thing for my Chaos comic as well, just have to compile the writings. My mind shut down when I was confronted by 607 topics in my laptop. I'm trying to get better at art and life in general, though art is not my main priority.. programming is awesome, man. Dem goddamn numbers and the wonders of science, dayuuummm.

I'll be posting commissions and art that I owe to others soon. Take care and see you on tumblr or irl. ilu.

I'm glad you're still around In some form I must say. DeviantArt as a whole would be a little bit more dull if you left entirely. Though tbh everyone grows up and moves on from different periods of their life. It's flattering you imagine yourself moving to London so good luck with it all. Just do what you want, that's what you usually do right? ;p

Aww, thank you. I've moved to tumblr but I do drop by from time to time. I'm just not very active on DA because I draw a lot of unfinished works. It's true what you've said, I never expected things to change. I love London, been there once and I fell in love with the place. Such a far cry from the countries I've been to. Maybe one day I'll see you there, it's a matter of getting visa approval. :D I'm grateful for your support.

Ah awesome, I'll make sure to get you on Tumblr then. Well tbh the most important thing is that you're still being creative, if you had stopped drawing then it'd be sad but simply changing the way you draw is all a matter of growing up and maturing.
That's so cool, I'm glad to hear that. Whenever you're here drop me a line and I'll show you round the Imperial War Museum ;D
Nah don't mention it just keeping doing what you do.

...when did you get a tumblr and why do i not remember this AHHHHHHH. My tumblr is full of faggotry stuff I make in photoshop and stupid musings overall. Plus sketches. Lots of sketches. ADD ME YOU WHORE.

On a sad note MY TABLET IS DEAD and I alas don't have 1K to get a cintiq. Not like I practiced much with a tablet since my impatience get the better of me but- /BRICKED

I hear you on the "got hit with the life and irl work train" though. Job, college loans, health insurance, rent, gas, and phone bill all in one month YAY. I end up sketching a lot at work to make time go faster, since being a photo lab technician can be a long and tiring job. Customers can be the worst people ever holy shit.

BUT I'M GLAD TO HEAR YOU'RE ALIVE. KEEP AT IT WITH FREELANCING AND BITE PEOPLE'S HEADS OFF IF THEY'RE RETARDED. 8)))))))

Ah it's nice to hear from you on dA. (: I snagged your tumblr a while ago, it is the essence of your ADD mind. <3 I've been wanting to talk to you, but haven't gotten around to it yet... just wanna see what more you're up to and how you're doing. Twitter's like a one-way conversation it seems. P:

Pilot lessons, programming, parties... what are you NOT doing? ;D Have fun with it all!

THINK OF THE SHOPPING WE CAN DO AT SALISBURY'S, ALL THE COFFEE WE CAN DRINK IN CENTRAL LONDON, ALL THE WEED WE CAN SMOKE IN CAMDEN, ALL OF OUR GAMEFAGGING.

Nothing but the best awaits me. I will punch my obstacles in the face.

Coffee we can drink in central London when STARBUCKS RULES THE WORLD, probably your plan for world coffeee domination going perfect.

Mmm, good good. Make sure to post some epic flying stories after you get that surgery done.

inorite.. most of the time I'm either away from home or working, my drawing habits changed. Sometimes you need to get away from art for a little while and see if the muse comes back.

I have to thank you for showing me tumblr Tecato, all the stuff there is very inspirational~ *u*

I hope you get to fly many lovely helicopters, just like the ones that fly over my house every now and then. Very glad you found something you like, programming is sweet but, unlike you I'm not very good with numbers haha.
