HELLO, ALL OF MY WONDERFUL ARTSY-ART FRIENDS~!!!!!
My goodness, I have quite a few topics to cover in this journal; where to begin...
First order of business: A horrendous 'THANK YOU' to everyone who responded to my last journal!! Seriously, you guys, thank you. I honestly would've been hopelessly lost without your suggestions and recommendations. Unfortunately, life has been happening every 5 seconds I try to do anything art related lately so I haven't had a chance to sit down and do my homework on the suggested programs from the responses I got... Soon!!
Next, I finally managed to finish my script for Chapter 1 of my manga and have a nice little intro going for Chapter 2! I currently have a navigationally challenged road map of ideas for this manga and I need to get them all written down so I can try and figure out a timeline for it all. I also need to look into websites I wanna post this manga on. If its cheap enough, I'll buy my own domain. I'm also considering looking into SmackJeeves as I've read a surplus of great webcomics/webmanga on there. And of course later, there's the whole process of getting printed copies published and onto store bookshelves. I have an amazing friend up in Scotland who is going into an animation school soon and she already wants to make my manga into an anime!! *just dies*
And guess what, you guys... I FOUND A NEW JOB THAT IS 100% STRESS FREE AND I LOVE IT!!!!! Next week will be my 3rd week and I feel so great about it. I'm now a receptionist at a salon and spa near my house. I've been having such a great time over there. All the women I work with are so nice and my boss is a great woman and so laid back. The majority of my manga script has been written at my desk in the spa lobby as this place is new and just opened so business is a little slow
But I'm not complaining! I'm making great pay and so far I'm only working 2 days a week.~
Speaking of business, anyone on here who cosplays or knows someone who does, I am actually going to be selling two of my cosplay wigs! They're both mildly worn and in great condition. One is even pre-styled. I'm asking $35 USD for one wig (the pre-styled one) and $30 USD for the other one. I know that sounds like a lot but that's actually a whole lot less than what I originally paid for them. I'll have pictures of the wigs up on here soon.
Onto the next topic: I'm FINALLY going back to school this Fall!! The only problem is, my mom and I have been having this silent war going on for the past year or so over which school I'll be going to. I want to start taking online classes at the art school in San Francisco that I have had my heart set on for years. But, my mom wants me to go back to the community college for a little while. I spent 2 years at the community college right after high school and took every class I could. That school has literally nothing to offer me anymore so why waste time and money going back? I hope this war ends by Fall with my school on top. I ain't gettin' any younger and I'd like to get a taste of my dream job before I'm old enough to retire!!
On top of everything else, I've been trying to prepare as much as possible for SacAnime con which is coming up at the end of August. I'm super excited about this con because not only is the con this summer going to be bigger with a giant cornucopia of special guests, and not only do I have two cosplays for this con that are almost finished, but this will be the first Summer SacAnime that I've gone to since 2010!!! I really need to get my two Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji cosplays finished by then. Thank gods I'm finally getting paychecks again~
On a random note, if anyone reading this is going to SacAnime and just happen to be cosplaying as Ronald Knox from Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji on one of the days, could you send a private message my way? I have a little request in reference to a Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji OC I will be cosplaying as~
That's it for this journal, folks! I'll try to get pictures and art posted as soon as I can!! Seriously, life needs a pause button so I can post things for you whenever I want...
Stay awesome, everyone!!
Your favorite l'il Dragon
