Another journal entry? Sure, it's been a while. Though, a little warning, this one won't be all sunshine and rainbows. Let's get to it.
Starting off as usual is my medical condition. Nights have been more rough for me, especially when trying to sleep. More-so, the evenings when I am sitting up working at my desktop. All I can say that is hasn't been a very pleasant experience, and it's something I wouldn't wish on anyone. Anyways, I had my referral changed to a different neurologist that is closer to my location. I'm still waiting on a call but apparently their office was closed a week back? I'm not sure why, but I hope it's all still active. I'll probably call back soon, if I don't hear from them.
Health junk aside, I have been a little cranky as of late. Late-season heat waves are not fun. Not being able to use my desktop because of said heat waves are not fun, either. Dealing with annoying neighbors that are computer dummies isn't fun, and so is with internet drama. Trust me, I had my fair share of head-butting this week alone. As for the actual heat, the family is working to get new air conditioning units for the house, since our central air is dated.
Continuing on with the rants, I've honestly been feeling a little disconnected from friends and allies alike. I mean, I know people have different opinions on stuff, but it's hard being able to enjoy anything new with anyone if they get super pissy about. For example, it's hard discussing anything Overwatch related without someone getting pissy. Someone rage quits because of obsession over the meta (in casual!), or someone hating on the game because "muh TF2" or worse they're some "Quake Elitist." Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy TF2, but Valve has no love for the game like it used to, and even with the game's faults, I still love Overwatch. Sadly, I'm probably the only one excited for the Overwatch Anniversary event at this rate.
Another example would be... MLP! Oh god, the pissing matches that would begin whenever the subject of Starlight Glimmer coming up. I can understand not being too fond of her rocky reformation from Season 6, but man give me a break. You're gonna REEEEEEEEEE every time she shows up, now? I guess the same can be said for Flurry Heart, which is funny considering how intelligent the baby actually was in A Flurry of Emotions. But yeah, I can't say I have anyone to really talk about MLP with anymore, like Overwatch. Not even friends, either. They're all tuning out. I can't even fault them for that because, to be fair, the show has been going on for six to seven years. Meanwhile a shit-load of CN shows are coming to an end. Adventure Time, Gumball, Regular Show to name a few. That said, I've been enjoying season 7 so far. Though I can't help but wonder how bad shit will get when the MLP Movie hits theaters later this year.
On the subject of feeling disconnected, it's... well my older followers. I know I shouldn't complain over something a little petty, but I have a bunch of watchers from almost a decade ago that are MIA. I can't tell if anyone following is watching for the art or not. Back then... shitty Atomic Betty & Yin Yang Yo drawings? Now it's slightly less shitty SFM posters. More feedback from you guys would be appreciated. Not even in favs, either, but comments. If there's any old followers that are reading this, let me know what you guys think. I'm all for constructive criticism, advice, or other thoughts. I miss having an audience I can talk to. I guess that's what I'm trying to say, anyway. Hell, if there's anything you guys want to see, then don't shy away!
As for art and videos... huh. Not much. Well, it's admittedly been hard between health, heat, and stress. I might make a few filler videos for my channel. Nothing too haf-assed, either. Maybe a few recorded Overwatch & TF2 clips I really liked. I also thought about animating a few dubs as a way to exercise my skills. There's also the fact I still have my scanner I barely use. I really should look into drawing, again. Oh right, can't forget the private commissions. Don't ask.
Anyways that's all for now. Have a good one, and I hope it's better than my current run in the year!
