I am really so
touched by everyone's words on my last journal
, So many seem to know exactly what to say where I myself could not, I am kind of at a loss here I don't really know how to conduct myself, this situation wasn't exactly covered in school. I've got some updates on what has happened / what is going to happen I'll throw them up on my tumblr
when I have time. I guess all anyone needs to know right now is that apparently the guy my cousin stabbed was no innocent little peach, alcohol was involved, earlier that day he was beating the fuck out of his girlfriend and the one that is relevant to me is that he was apparently a part of a gang
and The police have warned my family to be aware of retaliation
especially after an individual who was close to the victim left this on the WGRZ news facebook "They may have won the battle but we will win the war"
and several of my family members have deleted their Facebook and refused to appear in court so their faces are not seen. I'm not really sure what that means for me
I'm kind of the black sheep of my family so I don't really know if it's public knowledge who I'm connected too but I'm not really too worried about my own well being. it's theirs I am worried about. My only comments on the situation are their anger is justified but it's kind of fucked up that everyone gets punished for something one person did.
Now I've been bombarding you guys with depressing journal entries for like the past month because well...it's been a depressing month
, But I do have some good news for you guys! there is light at the end of the tunnel! I want to keep you guys updated but I find myself unable to find time to finish any art that I am not obligated to do (contests, commissions, home work, etc) Art trades will just have to be patient and I've got a list of birthday gifts a mile long that I would really love to get cracking on if I could stay still for longer than 15 minutes. Speaking of Birthdays
Mine was yesterday and while it was not spectacular it was not awful which after the last few weeks not awful
is a breath of fresh air. Mom took me out to dinner and my Boyfriend got me MH dolls and he baked me a cookie brownie (I'm going to marry this man one day). And here on DA you guys are the ray of sun shine my cloudy day so desperately needed. Once again I am surprised and humbled by all the wishes of a happy birthday I received! My parent board looks like the happiest place on earth! I can't thank you all enough! But I can try! I promise I will reply to every comment I received on the matter! Not now
I'm going to work as soon as I finish typing this for a nice long all of my Saturday shift, but I will! so if there was anything you wanted to say please feel free to leave me a message, It will give me something nice to look forward too when I come home from dealing with the piles of grossness that is my job. That being said aside from the wishes I also got some beautiful art from some beautiful people! You guys all know I lost my tear ducts in the revolutionary war but if I still had them, I'd be crying because I am so happy! The idea that I have inspired such stunning feats of artistic brilliance in others is really one of the most rewarding things about being on here with you all and has kept me here for the last decade, to be an inspiration to anyone even if it's just to draw a stick figure means so much to me. I can not find the words to express how beautiful these are so I hope you guys once again can fill the void and leave these wonderful people some nice words about their hard work and gorgeous art!
I'll find some words of my own once I can muster up something that's more eloquent than keyboard smash, heart emoticons and "I can't even". Because you guys really deserve only the best from me and I will make
the time to show my appreciation.
I will add more when / if I receive anymore! I know some mentioned they had stuff in the works and I am the last person on earth to penalize anyone for being late with gifts. I know everyone on DA has watchers, but you guys prove to me time and time again that mine are just better than everyone else's
love you all so much!
I love you all so much I want to play games with you! (best segue ever) My birthday gift to myself was a 3DS! Not that I make great money at the hell hole I work in (I don't) I just got a really great deal on it second hand. While I do not yet have any 3DS games for it (see reference to shitty job) I would like to acquire Pokemon X and Animal crossing new leaf sometime in the near future! So if these are games you have or you would just like to me in mutual 3DS friendship with me feel free to add me My code is 4527-8563-2632
and leave your friend code so I can add you! (also tell me what your DS thing will pop up as, I'm kinda dumb) And you can keep me company on my long tedious bus rides to and from school!
Speaking of school, I totally spanked my 3-D animation mid term and annihilated my Illustrator mid term (I would also like to add that Illustrator is quite possibly the most frustrating program on the face of the earth anyone who uses it on the regular you instantly have my respect...like seriously....why is the pen tool not normal?) , The jury is still out on the other five but I'm making it a point to tell you guys that I'm taking my education seriously and I'm not fucking around this time, so please know that while I am absent on here and my favorite web hang outs I am being productive in other avenues and all of my bitching and whining and moaning is not in vain.
I know this journal entry is kind of all over the place, but I
am kind of all over the place since school and work started but I just want to say thank you again to those of you who have been here with me during this difficult time, even though we are far apart you really do make it more bearable. Today I am going to the salt mines with a smile on my face for the first time in months and I have you to thank for that. my tumblr my twitterF.A.Q
