Personal Quote: "It's funny... when it's not you."
I propose that a new journal entry is made, for it has been too long since there was an update. Agreed? Agreed.
What's been happening? Well.... A bit. Storyboarding has definitely become a priority for me art-wise. I had up to three projects in tow recently, and two of those were personal. The other? The other was for a studio. I applied to a number of art studios (again), and one of them got back to me. After taking a test, all I can do now is wait and play the "Will they hire me...?" game that involves a lot of patience and a lot of waiting. Here's hoping...! This would be a wonderful chance for me to dip my toes into the sometimes icy, sometimes comfortably warm, water that is the industry. Either way, I'm certainly enjoying said craft. When I'm not storyboarding, I'm storyboarding, and that... pretty much says everything right there.
Other life stuff has been happening. I'm going to therapy now.... Yeah. Funny that I should consider it this late in the game after poo-pooing it (for myself only) for so long. I'm nowhere near as bad as I used to be, but there are still some loose ends that need to be tied. What's helped me more than anything, however, is digging deeper into the Word. Earlier this year, I took Joyce Meyer's 30/30 challenge of studying the Word intensely for thirty minutes a day for thirty days. I only did about... twenty days, but it was enough. Really made a huge difference in my life in a very positive way, but, per the norm, I since got out of it and now am back in a bit of a rut. When will I ever learn? :/
This past February (I think it was in February) I went to San Francisco... again. I stayed overnight that time, thanks to a friend, and the second day was, by far, the best day I've had this year and in a very long time in general. Looking back on it, though, I let my affections run away with me and now it's just at a point where I'm trying to... "let it go". *sings*
Really in kind of a tough spot right now. Best way I can describe it is that I'm tied to a rope with each end held by a different person on either side of me. One is pulling me into their arms; the other is barely acknowledging my existence, but my eyes are turned towards the loose end. I want and need to trust God in all of this -- that He'll lead me in the right direction. I'm a very stubborn, hard-headed person, however, and moving on sounds like the most difficult dang thing in the world right now, but that's what it's come to and, hurt like hell though it may, maybe it's the best thing for me.... Or maybe I'm wrong? I don' know....
All I want to do is just enjoy life.
