  • Mood: Pleased
  • Reading: The Shadow,The Darkness by Thomas Ligotti
  • Playing: Devil May Cry 4- PS3
  • Eating: candy corn
A lot has been going on in my life for the past year or so, but I'm doing pretty well at the moment.

But I think this GIF clip is a fairly accurate portrayal when I try to get things together :XD: s3-ec.buzzfed.com/static/enhan…

...I graduated last May, and my diploma (Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice) arrived in July. The ceremony itself was extremely long, but at least my family and friends were proud of me. I had a nice graduation party as well.

I was actually far more sociable in my last year of university, I attended more events and hung out with people more often, trying to come out of my shell a little. I really liked several of my professors, especially those who taught American History of the 1960s, Planet Earth (introductory geology), and Civil Liberties. They were intelligent, engaging and friendly people that I respected greatly, and I learned so much from them.

Mom found a new hospice care job, thankfully. Before she did, I was extremely nervous about the bills, as this had happened several times before over the past 8 years.

My sister studied abroad in Peru for 5 weeks for her Spanish program. I sure wish I could have gone, but since Peru is in the southern hemisphere, it was the middle of winter there. She ended up with some kind of strep throat and an injury in her leg caused a staph infection. :| (Blank Stare)  ...she's fine now, and started her junior year in university last month.

Cookie is doing a lot better with her arthritis; she has a much easier time getting up now. I'm so relieved for her now. She looks so much better these days. I'm confident enough to say that she'll live through the beginning of 2015.

As for me, my health seems to be fine. Thankfully, I don't seem to have any problems with my liver or my kidneys...
Perhaps that kidney stone that showed up on my ultra-sound scan last year was a mistake? Or maybe it's gone now. I'm OK with either of those explanations.

I am attempting to sell my short stories to magazines. None have been accepted yet, but I'll keep trying. I'm still writing, too, and I have one story half-finished (it's the first draft, though).

I want to start drawing again, especially since it's my favorite time of the year right now. Not to mention I've written down a lot of good ideas for pictures.

During this month, I plan to feature various horror artists in my journal entries.

I'm also going to a Halloween party on Saturday night, and I'm very, very excited about that. :eager:
I've been hacking away at my DA inbox for the past two days, and I'm down to 2649 pictures/messages.
Don't worry, I'm not stopping now XD

...I'll have a bigger update on Thursday or Friday :)

Cookie, October 2014
I haven't posted in a while, so here is the most recent picture of Cookie :)

Mom actually took this photo before she went to bed.

  • Listening to: Let's Go Dark- God Module
  • Reading: The Iliad
  • Playing: Silent Hill: Downpour- PS3

Dear God, it's September already?? Where have I been?? :iconimdyingplz:

A much bigger update will be posted by October, so yeah ^^; I've got a lot to say.

Before I go on, I'd like to thank the people who have added my works to their "favorites" section, commented on these works, and/or added me to their DA watch list... These gestures are
greatly appreciated, so thanks.

I wish I could be on DA more often, but the truth is that my internet connection (or maybe my browser) has become extremely slow and lagging for the past couple of months. It feels like an old dial-up connection. This is odd (and annoying) because I do not seem to have any viruses, malware, adware, spyware or :iconshodanplz: messing with my computer. I’d prefer not to (primarily) browse the internet on my phone; the small text is a pain on anyone’s eyes, even when I wear my glasses :P


I really miss you DA friends, though. How have you all been??

I want to start drawing again (lots of good ideas, but they're kinda stunted by my mediocre art skills)... but I need to resume writing, too. I have 5 basic plots and one half-finished first draft. I'd like to get at least three done by New Year's (knowing my schedule).

Lastly, here is the link to those adorable dogs from my older journal entry: cosmic--chaos.deviantart.com/j… They are cute beyond comprehension, no doubt about that. …this, too:

Last week, I found an interesting personality quiz based on 16 types, and my result was "INTJ": www.16personalities.com/intj-p…

My sister's result was "ESFP": www.16personalities.com/esfp-p…

If you want, check it out and let me know what you get :P www.16personalities.com/
