So, since my last journal update, I lost my job at the bank, was on unemployment for a year, gave up finding office work and got a retail job. I then had to move from Pennsylvania to Kentucky when my stepdad lost his job at the same bank, and could not find work in PA. I then worked at an Amazon warehouse for the holiday season, got fired because I was just barely able to keep up with their rates, and then got a job at Kroger.
I am also no longer a brony, I haven't been for at least 2 or 3 years now. (I will not be joining any more fandoms, I will be a fan of things but not that deep.)
Just this past month, I went back to college to get my Bachelor's Degree. So I've got a 40 hour a week job and 2 classes (1 is online) to keep me from having any free time. Any time playing video games, doing internet things, or even if I draw something - it's all procrastination. Also, I have discovered that my little sister has joined this site, and I am kind of worried about it ~ she's waist deep in that darn jump scare robot restaurant's fandom. And of the people commenting on her work, I think they're pulling her down with their depression, not in the comments, but in their own art galleries.
Sooo... here's my plans on what I am going to try and do here now:
De-ponify my profile. It makes me cringe just a bit.
See what I can come up with that's original. - I already have an idea on how to redesign a character I tried to design that should still be in my gallery on here. (the ghost with a skull)
Finish what I think is the last playthrough I need to do of Undertale to not have anything spoiled for me. (I just can't beat the [final?] genocide boss!)
What I'm NOT going to do:
Any comics. If I intend to tell any sort of story, I'm sorry, but it's going to be in writing. I might make some drawings related to things I write, but that's it.
Any fanfiction. I'm not going to let myself look like a weirdo. I know this kind of stuff pulls more traffic than original content, but I don't know... my gallery is already an example of shifting my focus too much.
Update anything on a schedule. Such a thing can't happen with work and school going on as well!
