For a while now. Like months. Since last fall or so.
(Also wow this is an actual journal update on here that isn't a livestream???)
So yeah, I've had a lot of stuff going on that I haven't talked much about. Hard to sum it up. So here's a sort of list
-One of the things I've mentioned before is that I want to pitch a Paperman full length movie to Disney that we've been working on since the short came out in theaters. We've put a lot of heart and effort into it on our free time and it's really just a labor of love. Still working things out with that but it's been my main directive lately and I can't post pretty much any of it yet b/c we're still working out copyright issues and all that though we're working on it, so I haven't been posting as much (but believe me there's a ton of art I've been doing). But I do share it in my livestreams if anyone is interested in seeing it more (that's the only place where I really can share more openly).
-Other thing is I've actually been away from home since Christmas Eve and have been with my friend, Zuka, and her folks due to family issues at home but am not technically moved out yet. Though I should be getting on that soon and going back this month and all that... I do plan on moving out and living with Zuka in Colorado for at least the rest of the year to get our lives together and figure things out.
-I've been trying to save up for moving out by doing commissions and such and that's been going pretty ok for now. I've failed at commissions before or they were short-lived but I'm at least doing a lot better this time and I'm at least proud of that and keeping myself disciplined. After illustrating a children's book and having that published, I learned a bit on how that works (oh yeah I did that too a few months back if I forgot to mention).
-Lastly, from where I started at the beginning, I've been pretty sick. And it's been a chronic thing. Been having stomach and digestive issues and all that and recently had to go to the ER even though I'm not in my original state but the doctors still haven't figured things out but they're assuming it's ulcers of some kind. I'm still convinced it also could be gallbladder problems though (esp. since that runs in my family on both sides). Either way, I've been suffering a lot and it's to the point where literally everything I eat can make me sick. Doesn't matter if it's good for me or not ( I tend to stay away from unhealthy food anyway), but I live in constant fear of being sick with every meal and it's not fun. I'm currently on some meds for it but it still comes up (I mean just yesterday I actually threw up twice though I haven't thrown up in an actual decade b/c I hate it so much but apparently I just couldn't not do it this time, which doesn't feel like a good sign).
Either way, I really need to go back for an endoscopy procedure, where they go in with a camera to see your stomach, just to really check what's going on b/c something is obviously up and I'm suffering a lot for it. I will need to head home again for that b/c I have to see my primary doctor just to get the stupid referral and he's back in So Cal and doing it here is just gonna be a hassle. Either way it's an unnecessary hassle and dumb.
I'm just... really hoping everything works out... with all those things mentioned. I've been going through some rough times as you can see and good thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.
So yeah just an update in general on what's all up.
