Hello everyone! I'm back! Took me very long enough to update a journal that I am. So you might be wondering or probably a question that may have in mind... What have I been doing? Where have I been or simply what happened to me for the past 2 years of Hiatus? Well...it's a long story so here goes..
On a lighter note... it all started when my brother and his fiance got married 2 years ago. I was officially an uncle when my niece was born. Her name is Mia. Me and my family took turns taking care of her for her needs or whoever is available on our days off. My brother's wife lived in our house for almost more than a year but inevitably decided to move with my brother with Mia to find an apartment. I don't want to go with details on why they decided to move but all I can say is that my brother's wife can't adjust living with my parents or simply can't follow some rules in the house. So that leaves me and my parents to support each other from now on and as the younger sibling I'm left with a lot of responsibilities. I decided to quit my previous job as an inventory organizer & cashier from Rite Aid and temporarily joined volunteer night classes and training from Civil Air Patrol as a senior member while I was job hunting. I only need to attend class once a week but there are a lot of activities from online lectures, video demos and online exams. Unfortunately, after a year and a half there came a time I parted ways with my volunteer activity to CAP when I finally got a new job working graveyard shift at Dulles Airport. If I probably continued my volunteer night classes from CAP, I would have been a mission scanner back then if I finished the remaining training requirements. Sorry to say though that I can't reveal which company I'm working at the airport because it's well...classified or in other words, company policy. I work part-time 4 days a week but I get duty calls sometimes whenever the airport is understaffed. Well, I hope that gives everyone the answer on what happened to me for the past 2 years.
Now on a darker note... my two pet turtles died back last year when they were not successful from their hibernation. I personally buried both of them in my backyard. I usually keep them indoors but from my brother's wife situation when she was pregnant... I don't know why turtles are not allowed indoors when a person is pregnant. Several months later, a relative of mine died with cancer...
On a side note... I just wanted you all to know that I never gave up my passion as an artist. I'm just distracted as always from my hobbies because I shift different activities most of the time during my days off to unwind like playing mobile games with my friends, watching anime, assembling Gundams, hanging out with life friends or family watching a movie or outdoor sports, babysitting my niece whenever big bro and her wife visits our home etc.
Health is important for me as well because I learned the hard way certain years ago when I ignored my body symptoms and overexerted myself that I eventually ended up with a severe sickness that took me more than a month to recover. It maybe selfish of me to think for myself and take it easy to take a break from art updates, comments and feedbacks to sort things out on what to do for all different activities I've been doing so far in life. I had my ups and downs in life but all I can say for myself is that I'm A-ok and still kicking. Thank you for whoever read this journal until the end and sorry for that I may have ignored your art and didn't even comment as well. It's really up to you whether my journal today is convincing or a load of crap. You are the judge to that. I don't have excuse for what I have done because it was always my choice. Some of my old DA watchers and friends quit but I'm not quitting DA and I'm here to stay and visit but inevitably still and and off activity on DA that I am. Thank you and much appreciated for those who still support me despite my long hiatus! Take care everyone and have a good day! My motto remains the same as always "Art updates, comments & feedbacks are always welcome anytime!" Good morning to all! Time for me to
here over and out!
