So this probably isn't much of a surprise that I'm back on hiatus as evidenced by my lack of activity, so I'll get down to the nitty gritty stuff that matters first (my content creation) and then explain further in detail about what is happening in the next while and the agenda
Regarding DA and YT activity I have been on Hiatus technically since January and that will stick until probably around April or May due to the large courseload this semester as compared to last, this will be a complete hiatus unless given the unlikely event the load becomes lessened in the last bit of the semester or until the afformentioned months. I am happy to see that people are enjoying my content that I have almost amassed an amazing 2,000 subscribers. It's very heartwarming to see this kind of support and despite the occasional haters or bad bits of the fandom, I still am enjoying creating the content that I make and not having one single regret about the way I made it. I know some of you actually were brought here from YT and I wanna say that I appreciate all of your support directly and indirectly. It is nice talking to strangers whom are really decent people giving me positive encouragement, and I apologize for not being able to keep up with everything but life is like a crazy heffer that you gotta grab by the....wait where was I going with that? erhem anyway, what I meant to say is that I read every comment and appreciate most of them, and sometimes I can't think of a way to show my appreciation for the support or comments I receive that would match how I feel about some of them. It really inspires me to keep on with something I do as a fun past-time which ends in a product that I can go back and enjoy myself along with many others and even laugh at it more than when I originally thought it up.
Good news is that despite everything, progress...although as non-happening as it seems is still being made. Just this week I have managed to get nearly 200 frames completed and have found opportune ways to make it much smoother than it originally started. The video is easily going to be over a minute and a half at this rate so it is a super big project. as of now, the video has 1100 frames, and that is with only a couple parts lip synced. Out of that I have only linearted 400 of those frames with backgrounds yet to be added and some parts are fully colored. mini spoiler; GB sans makes his return in this one along with someone other than sans, papyrus and frisk. Who you may ask? well you'll just have to wait and find out.
So that's it for all the followers, who just want the content relavent stuff. For those of you curious about the inner deets about my hiatus and previous going ons, keep on reading.
So if some of you had glanced at my journal or follow me on other social media(other than twitter, don't use it) You have probably noticed something was up with me the past while ago. About 3 weeks ago I had come down with an internal infection. It caused me a lot of pain, fever, nausea to the point that water made me sick enough to run to the bathroom, I was given an antibacterial, but despite telling the doctor the meds I was taking at the time, he prescribed to me one that reacted badly with my concerta which caused terrible anxiety, brain fog, a 5 day long headache, chills, sweats and even got as far as depression (which thankfully ended after stopping the medication). When I went to my family doctor he told me I was sensitive to the medication and it was reacting badly to my stimulant so I should stop it immediately. My dad and I thought that maybe this was just the reaction to fighting the infection, but nope, just really horrible side effects; never had anything like that until this thing. So my family doctor didn't give me any meds but instead wanted to wait until the results came back before proceeding. A week after that gong show I got sick again and had to get another medication for my stomach problems, after taking that for 5 days I finally got better, but I think that because of my little bout with the infection, I got hit with a virus and it caused me to not eat or drink for nearly 3-5 days, causing me to lose almost 10lbs in that time. Long story short, my weird behavior was attributed to being sick, along with a few other things that really irritated me (the pussyhat and vag suit march with Madonna that happened a while ago was a big one, as a female it disgusted me thoroughly with how immature these people were). I also got tied up into politics a bit too much, as much as I love being a conservative and supporting DJT, I was getting to wrapped up in it to the point where I was almost no better than the extremists, although I didn't stoop to the level of wanting to cause them harm by acting on my thoughts like I've seen some of them do. Stuff like that is disgraceful, seeing women pepper sprayed and egged because they like Donald is a disgrace, being labelled such aweful things for supporting a politician is disgraceful too. I'm sorry I really had to say that because while I'm all game for people supporting what they want, nobody should be labelling or attacking anyone because they support a Politian they don't like, even the worst children have more dignity and integrity than a lot of people I have seen. When the liberals here unfortunately won, I did not go and disown my friends or attack them physically for supporting the mug because it would be stupid and immature.
Sorry I got political, but I really wanted to say that because it has been on my mind forever, and now the burden of that thought is lifted with me disconnecting from politics. back to what's going on
I have gotten another job and this time it's at Lowes and a sales associate for hardware, ironically it was a month away from what would have been my first year anniversary at Home depot and it happened two months after leaving that awful place (I only stuck around because I needed to build some capital to help ease the student loans) . The people seem really nice and interestingly enough the store manager came from the same Home depot I did stating "there's a reason I don't work there anymore". The starting pay is a buck more and I get the same discounts, except now work is closer to me with maybe only a 5 minute drive instead of 10-15 minutes. It's only casual, but its the same hour range as Home depot's except that it is properly labelled as casual instead of casual under the guise of part time. I may also have a job at a greenhouse too, so I might be working 2 jobs during the summer, with one being a steady income in an environment I love (uncertain about pay rate) and then another to supplement. If all goes well, maybe I might be able to cut my student loan down by half, and maybe if I'm lucky I'll be able to afford a new Jeep(although I don't think I'll part with my current one for a while).
Schoolwise my semester is pretty full with around 2-3 labs per week and all the classes start at 8am....joy. Already I've wrote one midterm and have another one this Friday, and then another next week and then one the week after, so this is gonna be one rough round of weeks where my time management and priority setting is going to be tested.
Otherwise as far as other life events go, my dad, my sister and me (and sometimes my two brothers) are working on renovating my grandpa's old place to make it livable. The trailer we've lived at for a couple decades is getting old and is really starting to degrade. It's ability to retain heat is aweful and it has had to rely on expensive propane heat ever since our old wood heater went bunk about 5-6 years ago, and the roof is getting worse and worse for leaking which is making a perfect breading ground for mold and mildew. It has taken about a year but now we've finally got some floor and drywall laid down, but much has yet to be done. We're hoping that will all the combined effort, Dad and my youngest brother will be able to live in a warm, cozy clean house and dad will not have to pay the bills for the two houses. Heck I will even work at that house until my hands start to bleed and blister if it means getting him in sooner (and I have already made my hands blister a couple times from sanding and painting). The hope is to have him in there by the late spring, but we'll have to see how all plays out, especially if I might be working two jobs.
