August marks the end of summer and the beginning of a long, tedious process. I have good news and bad news to tell you... lemme give you the bad first...
Yes, it has happened again. But do not fret as I am only between leases. I'm not displaced, evicted, or anything. I just simply do not get to move into my unit early. Also I have no friends or family in the area that has the capacity to help or are not in town. It'll only be until the 23rd when I can move into my new place.
I'm not happy about it, but I do know that it's cheaper than living in a hotel/motel or using airbnb (day-to-day rent prices charged). I originally intended on going on vacation to Japan, but I do not want to use my money right now for that (it goes to paying debt and getting new computer peripherals).
Not Drawing for the TIme Being
My eyes simply hurt from looking at an aged screen. I don't want to make my vision worse as it is. Not only that, but I despise having to set up my 13 year old 10 pound computer that I have to carry in a grocery bag. (laptop -> charger -> external hard drive -> tablet -> charge phone and accessories -> pen).
It looks tacky and is a burden to carry around. Until I can get a new computer or tablet, I will eschew all forms of drawing until further notice.
What can I say? It didn't work. I'm neither disappointed or relieved. I've only received support in the hopes that I would get some. But hey, it's the thought that matters.
While I do love drawing for the hell of drawing, I do want to make some income from it off to the side. So it's not very rewarding for me.
Good news below!
New Laptop and iPad Coming Soon
I project that by the end of September, I will have enough money saved to buy a used MacBook Pro and iPad. Which means that I will have the ability to live stream and draw more efficiently. It will cut the weight of my old laptop (no more dragging around!) and it will be a better investment in the long run.
Therefore, I can offer higher quality art and get things done efficiently while on the go.
New Living Situation
My new living situation will finally allow me to focus more on art and making new friends. I will be officially moved into the city as well as being able to focus on what I need to in the long run. This will eventually be followed by me living in a dorm and focusing on school work once I am financially settled in.
Returning to School
My hard work will eventually pay off and I am heading back to school sometime between Winter-Spring of 2017.
That's right! I'm going to be attending Kumoricon this year in Portland, Oregon! I'll be dressed as Kylo Ren, Sasuke (from Boruto), and Amon (Legend of Korra) within the time period (not in that order as I am figuring that out). If you're there, don't be afraid to say hello!
My sincerest thanks to what little friends, family, and fans I have. I know I'm inept at social activities, but I do appreciate every comment, favorite, and support you all offer. Thank you so much for joining me in these turbulent years as I readjust myself to focus on my goals.
to name a few.
See you around! Yours truly
