Hello, peeps pros and all you other bros. Time for another update from the wondrous life of Devintal.
Before I get anywhere with this journal, just going to let you know that a lot has happened recently (hence why I haven't written a journal for a while) and will continue to hectic. So as expected, this journal will likely be long thus if you don't want to do a lot of reading, leave now. Now on with the journal.
First off, I have big news: I have recently passed all my classes and have officially graduated college. That's right, managed to pass both classes, one by the skin of my teeth, and am now free from college. At least for now, I've decided to take two years off to figure out what I'm doing with my life, where I'm going and what I want to do, not to mention get some experience and major projects done. Believe me, I need it, after four years of college that brought out some to the most strenuous and darkest times in my life, I need to take a step back for a while. Or I'll likely do something insane. For now, I'm just living happy in the knowledge I'm free from it all and can finally focus on the things I want to do.
Speaking of which, even with college done and behind me, my life won't get any less busy. The last weekend and along with the last few days have seen me primarily focused on finishing up contest prizes from the contest I hosted on my TLK account. The majority are done and will likely be posted soon. They have to be as my family and myself will be taking a trip to another city for a few days starting tomorrow and I won't be able to work on anything Photoshop related till I get back. And even then, my grandmother will be visiting and I want to spend as much time with her as I can. So art will be a bit slow till next week. But even after all that chaos has died down, I'll be busy with other matters.
I've made it my goal this month to work on finishing up pages for my comic The Lost Days along with illustrations for Zira's Demise (though my comic will likely be a bigger focus). Once I get those two done, it will take a huge load off me and I can then start making plans on working on other things. But while that's going on, I will be looking for a job to help in saving up for when I move out. That's right, I'm planning to leave home some time either this year or the next, though I'm nowhere ready to leave now. Much of it will be me filling in the gaps as I go along.
So over the next year, I have a lot planned. Along with getting a job, finishing up my comic and story I'm working on, I have a lot of other plans. I intend to start volunteering more often at my local museum and start taking it more seriously. I also have several other TLK projects waiting in the rafters I've been itching to work on. I won't say much but I might even have another comic in the works. We'll have to see how the dice roll.
Well, that didn't take as long as expected. I'll attempt to keep you all updated as to my progress but hopefully I'll be able to keep it shorter length.
In the mean time, may there be a wind in your step and a song in your heart. Bye.
