Where Am I?
Yep. Looks like the whole Zelda thing didn't work out, huh? hahah I figured it wouldn't. Hey, but I have a very good reason for me being absent!! It's not that I haven't been drawing at all--in fact, I have a buttload of crap I need to upload. Don't worry, it's good crap. (what?) Anyway, on top of that, a lot has been happening: My friend and I bought Animal Crossing for the 3DS and we've been super addicted to that, we've both been looking for jobs and have had no luck so far, I'm still trying to get into school, I got hit on by this jerk at a Hot Topic, and I've had a lot of drama with my family recently.
So, if you don't mind, I might just use this as a 'vent' journal if that's ok. I guess you could say that this is a warning or whatever, haha. So don't feel obliged to read on. :]
Well, you probably know already that my parents are divorced...but they still see each other a lot. It's weird, it's like they're begging each other to hate each other. Anyway, they just seem to attract drama everywhere they go. And you know the saying that goes something like, "you attract what you are". Throughout my whole childhood I've dealt with drama because someone's parents had issues with my folks and they projected their feelings onto their kid so that kid bullied me. It was hell! I didn't do anything wrong. And, you know, you would think that I've moved out of my house and away from that, but no. My parents still found a way to drag me into their drama.
So, my mom is a coach at this middle school, right? And, occasionally, I help out with whatever she needs, wether it's keeping book or setting something up. And, supposedly, someone is stealing my mother's ideas to make the program better and pulling the rug out from under her or something like that. And other parents are talking bad about her behind her back, and all this nonsense is happening. How is this my problem? Good question, in fact, it's the same one I asked when I got pulled into all this. "I don't want you talking to those people". Well, I try not to talk to anyone affiliated with this family, so you know, whatever. But...I mean, come on. How old are we? I understand if you're a kid and you're being bullied, but COME ON. These are grown ass parents, people.
Now I'm in the middle of all this, and I don't know what to do. I can't get out of it, or my family pulls the "family" card on me, and I can't stay in this mess because I'll drive myself crazy. I have to be on my family's side, but honestly, I keep wondering...who's on my side? Oh yea, and there was this teacher that used to work there. I've had some horrible teachers, and I've had some wonderful teachers, but this one...was the BEST. He was like..
He was like a father to me.
He doesn't work there anymore.
Man, I miss him. He was my voice of reason, my guide, my John Kramer to my Amanda Young. I wonder what he'd say at a time like this. He always knew what to say...
Gah! But enough awkwardness!! Aside from this nonsense, I've been inactive here, because I've been working on something totally awesome and freaking amazingly badass!!! You guys are gonna flip! Seriously. It's taken me so much freaking time, but trust me, it will be worth it! I'm so excited, I'm almost done with VOID!!! Yep! The whole enchilada!!! I don't know when I'll get submissions in, because again it's a hell of a lot of work and it takes a while with this crummy software I have, but it's gonna kick your asses! I'm so pumped!! [like piggeh! yeeeeeee!] Anyway, yea! I've got that, and some sketches, and featured artists--it's great! Hey, so thanks to those of you who read this whole weird journal, and thanks to those of you that stick around even when I'm totally inactive like this! It means the world to me! :']
So, here's hoping this whole mess blows over so I can get these submissions in!
Love you dudes and dudettes!
