I Got a Subby!
Couy-Chan was kind enough to give me a one-month subscription--thanks, Couy! So now I have Journal skins, polls and picture thumbnails again, among other features. If I don't get any sub time for Christmas (it's on my wishlist), then I will probably buy myself a year sub sometime around New Year's Eve. Anyway!
Haven't Posted a Journal Since October?
Yeesh, where has the time gone? I've been so busy with work and with video games and other relaxing wind-downs after work lately that I haven't drawn much, or had much chance to scan anything. I'm working on that, though. I unburied my scanner on the table, and I have hit another art milestone.
Yup, I've finished #75 and started #76. I will get the ending/intro pages posted soon. I realize I barely scanned anything from #75 to post here on DA, so I may post a bunch of stuff from that all in a row sometime soon. Work has scheduled me a 3-day weekend just after Christmas, so that will give me a little leisure before the year ends!
I've fallen off the ball with the art posting because of other stuff I've been devoting my time to. One such thing is NaNoWriMo. This November, I didn't let myself draw more than one or two days. Every single day other than that little intermission, I wrote fiction instead. And guess what? I hit that 50,000-word goal! I have never managed to do that before!
Still messing with the idea of using my Tumblr. At the moment I post doodles and smaller stuff to my Facebook page, which I know is a bad habit to get into. I'd rather be posting them on a Tumblr, but I need to set Tumblr up to post easily via my phone.
So, the 48-inch TV on layaway wound up getting canceled...because I managed to snag a 40-inch TV during Black Friday for a quarter of the price! It's fantastic to be able to watch shows on a big screen, but the most massive difference is seen when I play video games. Games these days are designed for a large screen, and on my old TV, I could not read the text. No problem with that on this one!
Speaking of Big TVs...Game With Me?
Anybody out there who plays games on PS3, if you want to friend me and play some Minecraft, Resident Evil 5 or 6, Lego Marvel Superheroes, Lego Batman, Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide, or another game together, you can friend me. My PSN name is Threshie556. Please mention your DA name in your friend request so I know you're not some utterly random person online, though! I am not online very often, but it's fun to game with somebody when I am.
Hopes For 2015
I have a lot of goals for 2015. I want to change jobs. I want to get rid of my debt so that I get to keep the extra money I earn. And I really, really, REALLY want a cat!
I'm hoping that I can go to part-time working instead of full-time, too. I never intended to work a full-time hourly job--I was a freelancer for three years, and I COULD do that again if I was so inclined! I also want to live more healthily, including eating less sugar and drinking kombucha instead of energy drinks all the time. It'll be cheaper, too!Off I Go, Then.
I hope everybody's having a lovely last month of the year. If I don't post another Journal before New Year's, I will surely post one in 2015 exclaiming cheesily how I haven't updated my DA "since last year!"
'Til then, this is Threshie, signing off.
