i'm dead

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 19, 2014, 6:09 PM
holy shit guys. for one, i'm so sorry for ignoring some messages, i'm trying hard to catch up with everything! I've just been so busy working two jobs now and such. working at petland is an amazing job, there's a couple really amazing people that i love working with. theres one that seems kinda bitchy with me and acts like i dont know shit but i just ignore her. management or not, i will only acknowledge you if you treat me like a human being. Today was day two of working there! i worked small animal and iso, which is a room where animals are isolated from the store and others if they are sick, or if someone surrendered the animal we put them there just to watch them for a couple days and make sure nothing is wrong with them. we have a few in there. two birds that have broken blood feathers, a couple mice with various problems, hamsters, three rabbits, two hedgehogs, and some reptiles including a gecko, a couple bearded dragons and a cornsnake. i work small animals again on thursday then i'm in the reptile department friday and sunday. i love being able to play with the animals and having a parrot squawk at me on my shoulder while i clean. i definitely recommend working at a pet store if youre an animal lover!

I work two jobs now! A manager at the restaurant still, and now a pet counsellor for both small animals AND fish&reptiles! Studying veterinary courses most definitely helped me in getting this job : )) I am so excited, I start Monday at 7:30am. I look forward to playing and caring for all the rodents, birds, snakes and whatnot. the store just got a scorpion even so i'm pretty stoked there. he's pretty cool looking.

a guy i know just asked me to draw up his tattoo for him, i guess he was really impressed with my drawing. which doesn't really say much since it is just a portrait but we'll see! it's a full sleeve, legend of zelda theme. it is such a sweet ass idea and im super stoked to be able to draw it up for him. if he does use it, and if i really do well with this, it will be such a confidence boost. i'll post it as soon as i get a sketch going!

i need to clean my room, then maybe i'll do some drawing tonight.

Corel Painter 2015!

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 13, 2014, 6:18 PM
wow. if you havent used this program yet, corel painter 2015, i definitely HIGHLY recommend it. so far i like it better than paint tool sai, and  freaking love that program. the linework, the brush strokes, are so much smoother. i'm currently playing around with it on a pencil drawing i did, if things continue to go swell i might even livestream. just. woow. i love this program. the previous corel painter was always super glitchy for me but this program is absolutely amazing. so far at least. i love it! if i do livestream i will more than likely talk to myself constantly and you'll probably hear it considering my webcam has a built in mic and im too lazy to turn it off c':

ill keep you posted!

i wanna feel you from the inside

first day of work after holidays sucks major balls. especially when you walk in and find out you're working alone with a server you absolutely hate for a few hours. that really blew too. but i'm finally home now, and about to clean the living room before i do anything else. chores suck. orz
went to the doctors yesterday, found out i have two really really bad outer ear infections, or swimmers ear, to the point where if it had gone on any longer pus would've exploded out of my ears. how's that for imagery! my tendinitis is in fact back so i was right on that. got put on more anti inflammatory drugs. possible cortisone shots are in my future. those shots made even my dad almost cry. he had to get them in his thumb because he has something called trigger thumb or whatever it is. still waiting on the results of my bloodwork!

im gonna try and draw when im done cleaning. maybe. i'm currently downloading corel painter 2015 to try it out, i heard it's incredible. so we'll see! it's been so long since i've used my poor tablet.

it's cloudy and cool here and i enjoy it. i hate hot weather.

I've been on here for awhile, and kinda died for a year or two. Before I used to have a few people as friends on here, and talked to a lot of people. I miss it! Anyone wanna make friends? I'll start!
 I live in Canada, i'm 19 and i used to draw a lot but had a really bad art teacher in highschool that basically made me stop drawing. But i'm trying to start up again! I love animals. I love gaming; pc gaming, ps3, xbox you name it. I do have a psn account and steam if someone out there would like to get their butt handed to them in a game of cod or something. I love scary movies, anything horror really. And supernatural. 
 Anyone care to talk? C:

Hey, I saw a forum post of yours from last year. You were really depressed, and I just want you to know that if you ever need to talk I am here for you. Much hope and love to you friend!

I'm going to tell you something right now.
You are BEAUTIFUL.
People will always try to put you down...People will always judge you.
There will always be someone out there hoping you fail or try to make your fail themselves.
The best thing you can do is make the most out of YOUR life.
Don't let others dictate your life for you. You really have to create your own path or you will be miserable forever.

Outside of HS life doesn't get any easier. The drama goes down, but its still there...you need to work harder to make something of yourself.
Try to take insults with a grain of salt. Are they so miserable that they have to make fun of you? Yes, yes they are.
Don't let their misery get you down when the world has so much to offer you.

Don't give up now because it only gets harder.

Its worth it.
