Hey guys, it's been awhile! How have you guys been?

As always, I've been busy with school and haven't had much free time, but I do have some new things I should probably upload lol. I've been really into crochet, and I've even made a couple patterns myself, I won't tell you what they are yet though, you'll have to wait for pictures. July and June were pretty hard months to get through as it was expected, I just had to keep myself busy. 

As to JAC challenges, I really want to be able to catch up or at least work on a couple of challenges that I wanted to take part in, but didn't have the time to. So, hopefully once I've got a good area and a camera that works good, I'll have those pictures posted. Maybe, possibly, some assignments from school that I haven't uploaded. Meh, I'll decide that later since its so late right now. (it's like one in the morning lol)

:D

L to my fellow Jogees, I miss you guys and the stream tons!!!!!

I've been doing well since the last post, and hope everyone has been doing well. Been missing Jogee a lot though! Luckily, I made it through Christmas and my Birthday without getting too depressed so that was a relief. I've been really addicted to Pokemon again, so if anyone else plays Pokemon X and Y go ahead and leave a friend code. 

In other news, I've been real busy with school again. I doubt I'll post a lot of my storyboard stuff on here but I might. I don't know. I've also gotten into crochet and I've been making tons of little octopus, squid and cuttlefish. I will be selling these eventually but I need to prepare for that, making an online shop as well and making supplementary stock, getting my own pay pal and the like and figuring out postage stuff. That and school keeps me busy.

So, that's what I've been up to. How've you been?

Go see The Hobbit! Don't think, just do it! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I love it so much!!!!!!!!!

Even though I'm at odds about the anatomy of Smaug. For me, technically, he's wyvern. Dragons have four limbs AND wings. I'm very particular about my dragon anatomy if you haven't noticed...

But I love him in spite of that! I love the entire movie! All the people in it, all the actor and everyone who worked on it!!!

I better stop freaking out, or at least keep writing about it. Just know that the movie is phenomenal! And seeing it in IMAX 3D with those speakers it has! You could feel Smaug's voice and roars in your BONES!

Jus a quick update to let you know how I've been. Though everything has been pretty stressful, I feel much better than I did last month. I know that depression will hit me again, but the bright spots feel great while they last. And I'm glad I have all of my friends, on here and RL, and my family to help me through it. 

School has been busy, got some animation done! I'll put a link to my youtube at the bottom for those who are interested. I really enjoy animation, though it really is stressful. My teacher is pretty cool, it's always nice to have one that is funny and makes the class fun. I'm going to have a storyboard done soon hopefully and more animations done. Then, I'll have a three week break before starting winter quarter. Don't have many plans yet, but I want to see friends I haven't seen in a while due to school. 

I've also taught myself how to crochet and knit, which is tons of fun and it keeps me busy when I'm done with homework. I might even sell some of them here! Let me know if you're interested in that kind of stuff. I make mostly octopus at the moment. They're adorable. Once I start making money I plan on buying more patterns and stuff. I make gloves too, and hope to learn even more!

So, in case I forget to post something, I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving or whatever it is that you celebrate! <3

Hey, just checking in. Feel free to ignore this if you want. I'm just blowing off some steam. 

----------------------------

So, school has been...difficult for me. Everything just feels like an obstacle these days, and I'm tired. Of practically everything. I've been thinking about going to a doctor, but the way things are with health insurance being a piece of shit (sorry for swearing, I don't feel up to censoring myself) I don't see much of a point in going and spending money on someone telling me what I already know.

I have a hard time in enjoying, well, anything these days. Video games I have no time for lately with so much school work, I want to draw but nothing turns out the way I want and I get so frustrated I give up. The only real thing I look forward to anymore is JoGee, it's the only real time I relax and can enjoy something again. With the way things in the world are and how effed up everything is, it's...nice to be able to look forward to something. To be able to hang out with the people I like and get along with. I can laugh and have fun again, instead of being angry and sad all the time.

Sorry about complaining about things, but I needed someplace to vent. These past three years have been the worst, and I just can't really see it getting better. Maybe that's depression talking, but I don't really care right now. I have a hard time caring about anything lately. I thought I was doing ok, but I guess I was wrong. I just... I'm tired. All the time.

Sorry the last thing I wrote was vague and confusing. I hardly remember writing it, I was barely coherent at all.

I might not be on a lot the next few days or even weeks. My brother died Sunday night and I was the one to find him. I just...don't know what to do right now. I love all of you guys so much, and the jogees are always a big help. 

I just love you guys so much, you know? I don't want to miss out telling you guys that. You've been a big part of my life for years, especially since Cindy died two years ago. Thank you all SO much for the support and your friendship. It means the world to me.

At least Josh isn't suffering anymore, and he's with Cindy again. That's all he ever wanted.

EDIT:

ALRIGHT LISTEN UP!

SERIOUS BUSINESS RIGHT HERE!

CISPA just passed and is going to destroy everything!

Go to SitesNotSpies.org to sign up to join the protest and for further details.

It's time to get pissed. The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally immune government spies just passed the House.

This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That's why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn't listen.

Does this remind you of something? Yep, this is the exact position we were in with SOPA last year. Then the Internet rose up and we made history with the SOPA strike.

This spring, we're going to organize the largest online privacy protest in history to make sure that CISPA goes the same route as SOPA and doesn't become the law that breaks the 4th Amendment. Are you in?

CISPA threatens our most basic rights. Privacy is important not just for our security but for our rights to freedom of expression. The giant tech companies that stood with Internet users against SOPA are not going to help us this time (but some of the large sites like Mozilla, Imgur, and Reddit are all against CISPA and we love them).

Only a massive grassroots outcry will stop this bill. We're starting to build the tools. But we need your help.

Share this, and tell everyone you know to sign up to join the protest!

School is goin' good, even though I have minor frustrations with my online class. Mainly that it is online and I much prefer to actually be in class, in person. Sculpture is interesting, I'm sculpting a skeleton right now for homework which will be done tomorrow probably. I just have to finish on leg, arm and the head and then finish up the rib cage. Not really detailed, obviously. If I had to sculpt every bone, it would probably kill me but I'd end up doing it because I will push myself to do it. Over achieving all the way people! :D

Concepts in Motion Design is very fun so far, learning to make gifs and stuff. I'm really looking forward to the cinemagraphs, they look really cool. As for my banner ad; I'm super happy with how it turned out! I might upload it if dA will let me. I have a huge backload of shiz I need to upload, but I have no freaking time nowadays. School is good at keeping you busy. I have no clue how people with full time jobs can go to school full time! I salute you! :salute:

And to my JoGee friends: I missed you guys! :(  My ipod died and I forgot to charge it, so I got no update saying Jogee was on. I'm a sad panda right now, I HATE missing the show and hanging out with everyone. It seems whenever my schedule changes it takes me a bit to get used to it. I WILL see you next week though, now that I know the day and time. Grr, I'm so mad at myself right now...and disappointed. I need my Jogee time.

Well, my update is done! How you been doing guys? :heart:

Phew, almost done! Painting takes a lot out of you! I might have some new things ready to upload when I'm done and I'm happy with them. The only final I need to finish is my Life Drawing one. Ugh, I can tell I'll have some frustration with that one. One word: charcoal...

Well, the only thing I'm going to say is that I'm disappointed. But when it comes to ME3 that's no surprise, is it? It's been a year of disappointments with this game. I will happily say that I will not buy any of the DLC, because it's a waste of money. I was hoping for more DLC, or at least one DLC that fixed the ending, but my hopes were for nothing. Probably won't play ME3 again, and any DLC is a waste for me. ME1 and 2 were fantastic, and maybe I'll play those again someday. Meh.

Whew! Luckily, Bosco was picked up by one of the local animal shelters and through Pet Harbor we got an email that they had found a dog matching his decryption. He's happily home now, he was so happy to see us! :D

I hear there's gonna be a Mass Effect 4....
...Opinions?

I personally feel, if it's a sequel, it will kinda be pointless for me to play. The series is done for me, especially (and I know that people might make fun of me for this) because of the ending. Yes, I'm still bitter about how bad the ending is. If it's a prequel, I'm not all that interested, depending on what the story is supposed to be. Either way, I probably won't play it. Meh.

What I am looking forward to, is that there are supposed to be DLC for Dishonored. I can't wait. That game rocks!

A game I'm on the fence about is Dragon Age 3. We'll just have to wait and see. I wasn't all that attached to Dragon Age 2, to be honest. I just wanted to play my Warden again, but that's off the table. No Warden for me. Unless I go back and happily play Origins again. :D

And thanks to everyone for the Birthday wishes!!!! :heart: :glomp:

Done with all my finals work! Yeah! Maybe I'll have some time to do my own stuff other than school related stuff. I think my favorite final was the character design, followed by my Illustrator class (adobe illustrator). Big, happy sigh of relief. I git everything done!!!!! :D

The Hobbit. I cannot wait! Right after class tomorrow, we're going to see it. 12:30 am! I don't care if I'm tired on Friday! I don't care that I have class the next day!  I.MUST.SEE.IT!
Woooooo!
(I expect to be sleep deprived)

I really dislike art blocks, especially when you need to draw things for school. *le sigh*
Break time, gotta grab a bite to eat. Maybe something will come to me....
Any ideas for a villain? Powers and such? the hero I drew has fir powers, so maybe along the lines of the the elements?
Ice? ...Maybe....
ugh..............

Dishonored is pretty awesome...just saying.
Beat it once, now going for a ghost play through. Nobody can see me in any level. Oh yeah. :D

Been kept real busy lately, lotsa school work. I LOVE my character design class though, it's really fun. :D
Uploaded some school stuff, need to take more pics of the traditional stuff, but I'm too lazy (and in pain) to do it right now.
Ugh, more meds here I come...

Oh, and off topic: the new youtube layout sucks more than the last one did. I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING!!!!!!! It's a good thing I got the old layout back after deleting my browser history and cookies. I hope they decide not implement that layout, it's a piece of @#$% !!!!!!!!
:rage:

Wooo! I survived finals, and I slept dang well this past week to make up for not sleeping last week. New classes, and I'm going full time now, so I'll be pretty busy. Sorry if I'm not all that active lately, but my life has become significantly busier. I'll have four classes, three days a week, so it will depend on how busy I become with assignments and stuff how often I post. I'll still check in once in awhile though. Kinda excited, though I did like my teachers these past eleven weeks.

These are my new classes for those that are interested:
Intro to Video 1-5pm Mon
Observational Drawing 6-10pm Mon.
Character and Object Design 6-10pm Thurs.
Digital Illustration 1-5pm Fri.  (just enough time to get home and make it to JoGeeTV :D )

Wish me luck! :D

Gah, I haven't been on for awhile! I've been super busy with college and stuff so that's why I've been absent for awhile. This week is finals, so I have to work most likely everyday this week on my assignments but I needed to take a quick break, and my allergies were killing me. :/
I have four assignments that are due on Monday, so I'm stressing a bit. But, I've got one down, so only three more to go and I'm already working on another. Slow and steady wins the race as they say, but I'm trying to hurry. I'll try to post more of the stuff I've done for school since I started in July, but it will probably be slow going. Some of the things I didn't take pics of but oh well. So, I just wanted to give a quick update. It's time to buckle down and work for a few hours ( a few? try longer...).

:D

UPDATE:
Movie Poster Final :  DONE! :)
Fund. of Design Final : DONE! :D
Practice Final : DONE :)
Three word Inspiration : DONE! :D
Make up assignment : DONE :)

2 Days left!!!!! Ahhhhhh!
Been working my butt of this week..... *sigh* I hope I have somewhat of a break next week...

Forseeable future: Will be working most of tonight. WILL BE Working through the day and night on Saturday and all day Sunday, some of that night, I do need to get SOME sleep.

STRESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!


I FINISHED EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
