It was brought to my attention that my last journal entry was titled "I'm Alive", and was written almost two years ago.
I figured since that was the only still-relevant part of the entire journal entry, I'd do myself a favour and write a new one.
First off, I acknowledge the significant decrease in activity. I wish I had an excuse I could pawn it off on, but I honestly don't have one. I can't even honestly say that it's because I've been busy, because for the most part I haven't been. In fact, this is the most free time I've had in... shit, probably my entire life. Rather than bore you with talk of work (since I'm fairly certain most of you wouldn't actually be interested in the details), let's just broadly mention that I work contracts, and when I'm not currently working a contract, I find I have a lot of time to kill. Time I could be using productively, say for my more artistic passions...? Nope.
To make a long story incredibly short, my life has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster this past year. I'd really rather not get into the more sensitive issues, but it's safe to say that my world has been turned upside-down in both terrible and amazing ways (but more terrible than amazing, I'm sad to say).
That being said, I will share a couple of the positives:
- I got engaged over the summer.
- My fiance and I are going to the Bahamas in December.
I mention these, because I'm planning on bringing my camera with us to the Bahamas (a camera which is now embarrassingly old, and in need of replacing - but then I think how how little I've been using it, and suddenly spending the money on a new one doesn't make sense, and yeah... bleh. D= ). I'm not making any guarantees, but I'm hoping to get at least a handful of shots I'll feel like sharing. And, for those perceptive enough to notice, yes I am still working on colouring that piece I shared of Lute - it's just incredibly slow-going, since I only really touch on it here and there, never really devoting any significant time to it.
So, yes, that's my life (painted with a very broad brush, using only one or two colours).
