*Stargazer*It’s been a minute

Oh man, sorry guys, it really has been a minute! I got back from my trip in Tokyo last Friday, and have been trying to settle back in with school, work, and life in general. I have been meaning to write, and now I finally have some time I think I will. The trip to Japan was amazing of course, and everything I had always hoped for plus more. It’s the trip I have always dreamed of doing, and never thought I actually would. It definitely wasn’t long enough, but that’s why we will definitely be going back. There are a lot of places I want to travel to, and I can’t to see all these new and wonderful places. The world is huge, so much bigger than we think, and there are so many different cultures to explore! It’s all really exciting when you think about it, and traveling has always been something I have wanted to do. I don’t want a typical life of working everyday and staying home and settling there is too much out there in the world to do that. So Japan was the first start of it, and that already made us want to just skip coming back home and make a life there. It really was fantastic, and even though we just saw Tokyo this time it was really amazing. It’s totally different there, and you never realize how different something is until you experience it. I am already excited to be able to go back and explore more of Japan. We stayed with AirBNB which was awesome, and our hosts were awesome and really helped make the experience even better. I would totally recommend using AirBNB to anyone who hasn’t yet and is traveling to other countries or areas. It really helps make you feel like you’re living there, and you really get the full experience instead of just a hotel. We did the typical tourist things, and there was a lot of walking. That’s basically all it was except for when we were on the train. I got a nice big blister on my pinky toe, but that didn’t stop me! There was also a lot of sweating from the humidity, and I am pretty sure I lost 20 pounds of body weight in sweat. It was so horrible, and after living in the desert for a couple of years now, you really start to notice the humidity more. I mean I was born and raised in humidity, always used to my hair frizzing and puffing, but now that I am used to it not doing that because it’s so dry, it was definitely another experience. I hate when my hair get frizzy and gross, that’s definitely one thing I don’t miss about the humidity. I also didn’t realize my hair was still capable of doing this because I am already used to the dry air where I live. I do miss though being able to breathe and not having to wake up to a stuffy nose every morning. When I am in a humid place I can breath through out the night, the morning and the day. When I am in a desert, I constantly have to blow my nose, use an inhaler, and barely can sleep because my nose is so stuffed. Anyways, we actually had really good sunny days also, a couple of rainy days that ended basically when we left to go explore the areas. So it ended up being pretty perfect, I just wish we had more time. Next time though for sure we will have more time, and it will be even better! I will show some pictures now!

See how awesome everything is! I took lots of pictures, and gained lots of memories, and this has me so ready to travel even more! This was my first big, out of country trip and it has already opened my eyes. I have gone to the Bahamas before, but this was nothing like that. Well that’s that for now, I have to go back to normal life until I travel again. Next trip will be back home, which isn’t a big trip, but that also depends. We are trying to save up for our big trips, and I am hoping to go to Ireland next! We have someone we work with who really wants to go to Ireland, and I think it would be cool to plan a travel trip together, so we will see! For now it is back to life, reality, and school and make sure I keep my grades up and pass all my classes. I got to sit down and focus more on my Japanese, especially since I don’t see it everyday or hear it everyday, so I have to work extra hard at it! So until next time!

*Stargazer*First Week of Class

So I finally survived my first week of classes! It all went better than I thought, and it gave me some good insight of what the semester will have in store for me! Which is why I dropped one course, and switched for another one! Ha-ha. Mainly just because I work full-time, and I knew I wouldn’t have the time or energy to put forth the full work I know I am capable of towards this course. I wanted to know that I was doing my absolute best in this one class on all my projects. I need to have the time for that, and it’s a new software I am learning so I definitely want to make sure I have the time for that. It won’t hinder me at all, I will still be taking the same credit hours, it will just help me focus more on my other studio class and do the best I can in that one. So I will save it for another semester when I can better plan everything out, and focus on what I need to focus on. It also doesn’t help that I am taking Japanese as my foreign language since I know that’s extra hard, but it is super awesome! I am so excited to take this class, and it is super exciting when you have things memorized and realize you can start reading things in another language! I love that feeling of accomplishment, and this is a language I have always wanted to learn, so I know I will be extra dedicated to it. Which is super important,especially when learning a new language, because you have to be interested in it in order for it to fully stick I think at least.

Anyways though, yes I finished my first week of school, and look I am able to write a blog post about it, yay! I’m not that busy yet, but I have already had homework, I also have to think of an idea for a cut out animation. I struggle sometimes when it comes to ideas, because I want to keep it simple so it can be an easy process, but I always complicate it. That’s just how my brain works, I come up with these great ideas just to find out, I am going to make my life a living hell if I attempt that. Mainly just because I don’t have the time to do something over the top creative. I guess it can be a good thing I think of these things instead of always just simple thing, but then again I think the simple things are good as well. For this situation, I need simple, and for some reason that’s just so hard. I have been searching for ideas, and some have sparked me, but again I just make them more complicated, but eventually I will come up with something! I also have just had my Japanese homework which is awesome though because I have been making sure I am doing it every day so I can continue to remember what I learned. It’s always harder to learn a language when you know you will never use it. I told my boyfriend I wish he would have taken it with me so we can talk to each other, because otherwise how am I going to keep the language if I can’t talk to anyone! So now I have to find a language buddy so I can keep everything I learn. I have met one person at least in my class, and she seems really nice, so for now I will have her but only in class. Maybe we will become a little bit closer or just have each other to talk with. I think she has some people in her family though that can speak Japanese, so luckily she has that, I’ll still have to find someone.

Speaking of Japanese though, it is officially a week from today that we leave for Japan! I will be able to read some of the stuff while I am there, and that is exciting. What’s more exciting is the fact that I will be in a whole other country, and one that I have always wanted to go to! I am so excited to experience the culture, language, food, and beauty, and I just can’t wait. I am wondering if I am ever going to want to leave, but that may be a good sign for me! I am of course nervous as well because it is another country, where I barely know the language, so it will definitely be an adventure. That’s what makes it exciting though, not knowing anything and just guessing! Figuring out the trains and everything else will be interesting, but there will be so many awesome sites to see, and it will be crazy to think I am in a different country and different time zone. We also have a layover in China so we get to be there for a little bit to rest and eat before we leave again for our flight to Tokyo, so that will be interesting as well. I am little more nervous for China than Japan, but still that will be awesome as well! Two countries in one is a big accomplishment for me, and I have a feeling this will be the best start off to my traveling adventures. This is totally going to have me wanting to travel more a lot sooner than I am supposed to be. Which may become a problem, but hey, I only have one life and I am going to live it how I want and do as much as I can! There are no time limits on things, and if that’s how life is supposed to work out for me then so be it! I will make sure to update while I am there since I have to bring my laptop for my homework anyway and I will even add pictures!

So that’s my update for now and how my week went and what I am looking forward to. Lets see how this second week of classes are, especially since I will have my new class I just added this week. It will all be good, I like all my classes for far, until I get stressed out and hate everything, but until then lets just enjoy it! Until next time!

Everything Is Starting

Oh man guys, school is tomorrow, and I am just not ready for it. Summer always goes by way too quickly, and I always want to tell myself just take another semester off, but I can’t. Well at least I shouldn’t, I have taken way too many to begin with, hence why I am still trying to get my degree. Besides that though, I am just not ready to have to wake up early, and go to classes. I am not ready for all the homework and big projects. I also know I am taking classes that are going to be leaving me with a lot of projects and I am not excited about that. I am also taking a Japanese class for my language class, and I already know that is going to be so difficult. I did it to myself, but that’s a language I have always wanted to learn, so I know I will be more dedicated to it. I just am not sure how well I am going to do while also having to focus on other classes. I’m already looking forward to break and classes haven’t even started yet. Yea I know, pathetic, ha-ha. On a positive note though a week in a half and I am going on my trip to Tokyo! That is super awesome! I have been looking forward to this forever, and it is finally happening! I just hate that it has to be happening while I am in school so I could look forward to it more. I was so excited for this day to come, but not as excited because I knew that meant school was starting as well. But Japan is coming up, and I am super excited! I just need to get through this week and most of next and then I will be in another country! I am super excited to experience another culture, especially one I love so much, and just soak it all in. This is basically my first real overseas trip to another country and I couldn’t be more excited! Until then though I have been trying to get everything together for the trip and for school. Luckily school is basically done, it’s just a matter of attending class and getting the stupid small stuff I will need. Of course it all costs money and I always feel like there is more and more that needs to be bought. Once I get into the groove of school though I’ll be a little bit better. I am definitely going to miss my freedom, but as long as I get this degree done then I can have as much freedom as I want. Hopefully I finish it, ha-ha, I am usually pretty random and will make decisions based on where I am heading in my life. If I am heading in a good direction where not continuing my degree is possible then I will take that road, if not then I continue to stay here. I haven’t written too much in a while, and I haven’t been able to have very much creativity either. I do have some things typed out on my computer that I just need to continue. I’m trying to make more time for everything, and it definitely is true when people say there is just not enough time in the day. Maybe while I am doing my animation homework and projects I’ll have a huge creativity spark for a story of some sort. We will see! Anyways, I will try to continue to be one here and write even if it is something small, and wish me luck on my first day of classes tomorrow! Until next time!

*Stargazer* Keeping Busy

I now have school coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am totally not ready to go back. I just really don’t want to. Summer always goes by to quickly, and a lot of the time I am ready for school. I am excited to going back to having something to do all the time and learning new things, but not this semester. I am ready for my degree to be finished and just done with school, but I keep putting it off. I am also even thinking of changing my degree, which seems to happen a lot. I never know what I really want to do with my degree because I never wanted to work a typical job. I have always wanted nothing more than to travel and experience life while not being tied down, but I never knew what kind of degree that entailed. I don’t think it really does entail one, but the problem is, is that money is still needed to do these things. I have never wanted to be tied down to a job, and I am sure most people don’t like to as well. I have always just wanted to do my own thing on my own time. Experiencing the world of travel is what I definitely want to do, and I am slowly starting that at least. I have a trip to Japan coming up in a few weeks, and this is a good start. The only problem is, is that I have to come back home to reality. I just keep telling myself this is only temporary until I finish my degree and can figure out where we want to go, but it always seems so far away. It also doesn’t help when I think about changing up my degree as well though. I don’t think changing it would affect me to much seeing as how I don’t want to look for a typical job anyways. Having a degree period will help me, despite what it’s in. I don’t know though, it is very complicated and still a hard decision to make.

It also didn’t help when we watched a movie last night, which is called The Way, and it was actually a very good movie. Of course it starts out sad, and it kind of is throughout the whole movie, but it is totally a good movie. Basically a dad walks the Camino de Santiago which is a catholic pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. He meets people on the way that are also doing this, and everyone is doing it for their own reasons. I don’t want to spoil the fathers reasons just in case anyone wants to see it. Even though now days you can just look it up on the internet and it will tell you, it may even just be in the trailer, but oh well. Seeing him do that though really makes you want to get out and kind of do the same thing, if you’re into traveling of course. It’s really exciting and all the different people he met and became friends with is just an awesome experience, and that’s something I would like to experience. So yea reasons like that are why I would like to travel, besides learning the different cultures around the world, and of course the food. I love food, and I love to try food, so experience other countries food is a huge bonus.

Anyways I have been so busy trying to plan our trip to Japan and getting everything planned out, tickets bought, and hotels and what not. Then on top of that trying to figure out my classes, buying books, and finding out where my classes are going to be. Making sure I have all the supplies I need basically, plus I have a friend visiting for a couple of days, and my boyfriend has a friend visiting for a few days. Too much going on for my liking sometimes, and it’s all approaching when I will continue to be busy with school work, so I feel like I am not having any personal alone time. I write my blogs at work because I don’t have any other time. I’ve started working out also so I had to add that into my schedule, but that’s a good thing. I am doing really well with it and keeping on track so hopefully I stick with this. I have the motivation and I need to keep reminding myself what the motivation is and why I am doing this. It’s hard to do, but it will get easier and once I start seeing results I think that will help as well. I am excited to see results because I am tired of complaining about my weight, but never doing anything about it. So I finally decided to improve myself and no more complaining. So yea, I have been kind of busy, and all I really want to do is just sit, relax, and watch some shows or even read. Writing at least helps me keep connected to myself at least, and I did write a short story finally after forever of not writing anything creative. Even if it wasn’t anything super awesome, the fact that I wrote something creative after being so absent from it, is awesome to me. Hopefully I can keep this up with school work and everything, then again maybe it will even help my stay focused on it. That’s my life for now though, busy, busy, busy, but super excited for our trip to Japan! I will make sure to post pictures and talk about my trip as well, but I still have a few weeks until then. For now, that’s how the cookie crumbles!

Freedom Speaks, But Isn’t Seen

Like the stars I wish for travel, but the wind is what will carry me.

Plenty of times I have wished to be blown away. For that extra push that would help me spread my wings and fly away. I would love to soar, weaving in and out of the gusts of wind that carry me to my next destination.

Life can be that gust of wind for me. I don’t know where I am going, and I don’t care, because I trust the wind. It is invisible, sometimes subtle, other times not, but it always is going somewhere.

So please take me with the next time you come through. I will willingly accept the wind, as it embraces my body. I will become light, and soar with freedom, such as the wind does everyday.

*Stargazer* Vacation

So I haven’t posted anything in a while just because I had been busy getting stuff ready to go back and visit family. I was going to try to post something before I left and then while I was on vacation back home, but I got too busy and just didn’t end up doing it. I am back now though from visiting the good ol Illinois. Of course the first two days we are there it’s under heat advisory because the humidity is just horrible. It was so bad, and sleeping at night was even worse. We even went to Six Flags on Friday, and it was fun, and it wasn’t as bad as the day before, but it was still horrible. Sweating the whole time, and just sticky, it was so nice to take a shower. Six flags Great America was fun though for the most part before getting into an argument with my partner and siblings. It’s always great visiting family, and I love visiting my mom, dad, step parents, and grandma because they are adults and act like adults. My siblings on the other hand can be very dramatic and can cause problems for no reason. Besides that normally we get along just fine, and we have always been super close. Obviously we are each growing up and kind of going our own ways. I moved away though, and that kind of made them mad. What made them more mad is that they feel the guy I am with now forced me to move away with him. Which isn’t true even at all, but I can see where they are coming from. I never really ever discussed moving to the state I am in now, and to them it was super random. To my whole family it was super random, and of course it happened while I am with my boyfriend, so in their minds they see me as being dragged away. When in reality, him and I discussed it just fine, made plans and had everything set out for ourselves that we didn’t view it as a problem. This place is also not particularly my most favorite place to live, and I don’t plan on living here forever, so that probably doesn’t help either since I am not head over heels in love with this new state I live in. The thing that angers me the most though, is I have been with my boyfriend for three years now, and still going, and we’ve actually made it quite far and are doing quite well for ourselves, yet my siblings still seem to thing these awful things. Their boyfriends are perfect in their minds, and they both accept each others boyfriends, but when it comes to mine there always seem to be something wrong. It’s really irritating because I can try to explain to them my situation and how it’s unfair and that I obviously wasn’t forced to move anywhere. I won’t let anyone force me anywhere, or even to be with them if I didn’t want to be. That should be known by my past, especially by them, that I won’t stick with someone who makes me unhappy. I tried explaining and they just wouldn’t understand and of course at that time I was in an argument with my boyfriend as well so I had both sides gaining up on me it felt like. I told them though if this continues I will refuse to visit, because it’s unnecessary for them to continue to dislike someone who has done nothing wrong to them in the first place. They should be happy for me and accepting just like I am of their men, and their situation, if they can’t be then I guess they don’t want me in their life either. He’s not going anywhere anytime soon, at least I hope not, and he’s made it this far, so they need to start accepting him, or accepting the idea of me no longer in the picture.

Besides that situation though it was a very nice, and much-needed trip. I felt like I didn’t spend as much time on my mom’s side, but that might have been partly because she hurt her back and couldn’t do much. It also could have been that I had my step sisters wedding to go to that took up a whole day that should have been designated to my mom’s side as well. Oh well, each year I try to plan better than the last and I feel like it never works out. I guess I just have to keep trying. Seeing my father was awesome also, we saw lots of movies, and went out and played something called Top Golf. It was actually quite fun and I would totally do it again, even though I suck at golf. My step sisters wedding was beautiful and she was beautiful and I am extremely happy for her. They are lucky and are going on their honeymoon in New Zealand, oh man, someday I can’t wait to visit there. I plan to for sure, since my life dedication is going to be to traveling. There is so much to see and explore that I just am not ready to stay complacent. So now I am back to the grove of work, and unfortunately school is quickly approaching. I am not ready to go back to University, and I am not ready to work full-time and do school work constantly. Life goes away for another 4 months of just straight stress. Luckily though I have one more trip I am going to in about a month, and that is to Tokyo! Japan is a place I have always wanted to travel to, and I am finally actually making it happen. I am super excited and nervous at the same time. Mainly because of the language barrier, but that also makes it the reason it is so exciting. Getting lost sometimes can turn out to be an even greater adventure, other times it could just be a disaster. I am going to look at the positive side and just see it as an adventure no matter what, ha ha. I am attempting to learn the language though, and I am going to make sure I have some necessary phrases with me, and I am going to try to memorize and learn the hiragana and katakana. I don’t think I’ll have enough time for kanji, maybe a couple, but definitely not many. Either way, I am excited, and I am planning that now and getting my schooling in order as well. Summer has gone by way too quickly like I knew it would, just like this year has honestly, but it’s all an adventure.

So I will continue to try to be back to my normal writing and blogging, and thinking up stories. I may have a lot to do, but I also have a lot to talk about. We also got behind on our videos on You Tube so we have to do that also. We have the videos just need to edit and post them all up. Phew so much to do and there is so little time it feels like, but this honestly, just writing, helps keep me sane. So now I just need to continue focusing on writing and creating stories again. I have actually had some dreams and ideas of stories I have wanted to start, but I forget to write them down or even start writing right then to at least get it started. I feel like I have had writers block of creativity for 10 years now, and I guess I am having troubling coming up with things. If anyone has suggestions or ideas of how to get back started after not writing for a pretty long time, I would be super appreciative of any help! Otherwise I will just keep continuing to write, read, listen to music, draw, and try to come up with something. I am sure something will come out eventually, but until then it’s the small steps that count!

 

Troubled Days

I find it hard to write sometimes, and especially during times when all of this stuff is going down. It’s hard to think of things to write, when you are just so disappointed in the world. Honestly though, sometimes that is the best times to write, because not only are you yourself going off into imagination land, but you can help someone else go there as well. It’s been hard in general to write just because I feel like I don’t know what to talk about, or too busy in a sense. I am supposed to continuously write so I can get my creative bone going, but it feels more like a struggle than anything else. I remember when writing used to be easy, and I would just think of things and they would flow so easily and freely. I also had a lot more time on my hands of course, but I also find myself doing this. Where I like to think and remind myself about the past and how things used to be instead of right now. Probably because I feel those times were much easier, and there are some things I regret. Even though you shouldn’t really regret anything, but most of my regrets follow with continuing my creativity. I should have would have done this, and if I had I would be here today, and so on and so on. Which isn’t even necessarily true, I had no idea what the future holds for me and I definitely didn’t know then either. So even though I like to think that things could have been way different if only I would have done this, that doesn’t necessarily make that the case. Basically I just need to get out of this funk that I am in, so I can continue on with my life and stop feeling so down. I just got myself stuck where I don’t feel like I am actually accomplishing anything and nothing is going the way I want it to. Until I get myself out, I feel writing and doing most things is hard, I think a lot of it has to do with my job and a bunch of other things as well. I just feel like I never have time to do anything and on top of that I don’t have time anymore to explore the many wonders of life. Obviously these are all things I have total control over. Living the “American” dream is nothing that it should be, because I am a person that believes living life isn’t working your standard 40 hour a week or more and doing nothing but that. I like to explore and travel and actually live life, and I don’t want to do the normal get married and have kids. My experiences will come from adventure and travel because I don’t find the fun in sitting around working and having babies, that’s just not me. Unfortunately all I am doing is working and going to school because that’s where I put myself in life right now. We said that it would be the hardest two years of our life because we would be working full time and going to school full time which means no time for anything else. Once that’s all done though you can do whatever you want supposedly, but I am even confusing myself with the true degree I want to do. I think I am just constantly questioning and confusing myself because I am unhappy and I am trying to figure out what I can do to make myself happy again.

At least if I continue writing that should help, and I am also visiting family soon so that should help as well. I also have a trip to Japan coming up and that definitely will help, only thing that stinks about that is that means I will be in school, and I am so not ready for school to start up again. I am also having some writer’s block of what I should start a creative story on. Whether it be a short story, or a real long book or just a random paragraph. Kind of like what I have done before in my old Life Journal, here are some examples. Also I wrote these back when I was in High School so like 9 years ago, so just keep that in mind, ha-ha.

1)    The waves were crashing into each other roaring like a pack of Lions. The boat was being thrashed back and forth uncontrollably. It was too dark to see anything in the distant. The only thing you could possibly see was the water in front of you which was lite by the light of the moon. Thunder roared in the sky showing gods anger towards everyone. The lighting flashed making more light to see in front of me. Still nothing. I tried to control the boat and steer it into a different direction. Nothing was working. In a little boat like mine what was I supposed to do? Nothing. So I accepted what most likely going to happen. The boat was going to either crash into rocks and break, or it was going to be filled with too much water and sink. Either way I was going to end up into the water and eventually drown. So I slowly let go of the wheel and slowly walked backwards. I stared into the starry night closing my eyes. Feeling every raindrop caress my face as I slowly sat down. I opened my eyes back up and took one more glance at the moon and stars. My one last final glance of life. So I took in what I could before a giant wave came in and crashed down into my boat. I felt the hard water being thrown into my face. Pushing me down and off of the boat into the water. I put my hand out as if to grab onto something, but nothing was there. I looked up from under the water seeing the boat come crashing down right into my body. I got thrown down farther into the ocean feeling every inch of pain from the boat and water. The only thing I remember is a bright light being shined above before I completely blacked out.

2)    (This one was definitely just a spoof of randomness.)

One time I was walking down the city street. I was just walking until I saw a pretty Blue Balloon. Right when I saw that balloon I knew I had to have it. So I ran after it. It kept going higher and higher. So I would climb building stairs to try and get it. But I never did get the balloon it was gone before I could catch it. So I slowly climbed back down the stairs very upset that I couldn’t get my balloon. So there I was just walking in the cold, cold night with my hands in the pockets of my coat. Very upset and not noticing my surroundings, when someone ran into me. Making me fall onto the ground. I sat there for a second till I saw someone’s hand come out and reach for mine. I slowly looked up to see a rather tall man. “I’m sorry. I didn’t see you there.” The man said. I slowly took his hand as he helped me up. “It’s ok.” I said staring at him. He was a very handsome man indeed. His deep ocean blue eyes and his brown hair that looked like he just got out of bed. “I’m Luke.” he said shaking my hand. “Krystyn.” I said shaking his hand in return. “I’m really sorry about running into you, but I got to go.” he said as he started to walk away. “Oh wait.” He said when he turned back around and walked to me again. He then handed me a blue balloon. I took the blue balloon and smiled up at him. “I saw you chasing after it a while ago and I got you another one.” he said smiling. “Thanks.” I said as I started to walk away. I came up to this little coffee house and walked in. I ordered my coffee and bagel and walked to a little chair and sat down. I picked up a book and started to read and enjoy the peace of the coffee house. A few hours passed and someone else walked in. I slowly looked up from my book to see the same man that had run into me. I followed him with my eyes as he walked to the counter. He ordered his food and when he was done he slowly turned around examining the coffee house. He noticed me sitting in my chair staring at him. He smiled a little before I quickly went back down to my book. I looked up one more time to see a smiling Luke sitting next to me. “Small world eh?” he said to me. I smiled and nodded to him. “Yup.” I said. We started to talk to each other more and more. Finally a few more hours had passed and the store was closing. We exchanged number and went to our homes. That same night he called me and asked me out on another “Outing.” Ever since then we had been talking and getting to know each other more and more. Growing to like each other every minute we were with each other. Finally a year had passed and we started dating. It has been three years now of us dating and every moment of it has been great. I will never forget the first time we met. When he gave me my Blue Balloon, I knew it was love at first sight.

So those were my two stories from back in my high school days, and they are just little ones that could be continued or not. That’s kind of what I mean though, just randomly having things like that, and I can do it again, I just need to take the time. I just need to go back to my creative mind and stop letting things hinder it so much. Unfortunately life hinders it a lot, which is why I embrace the idea of living off my own uncharted land. I’ll definitely have plenty of time then to figure myself out and write whatever I want. Anyways enough of the boohoo from me, I am trying and I will continue to try. Maybe next time I will actually have something that I have recently written. It has truly been a long time since I have written anything new. I am pretty positive the last things I had written that were truly just creative works of art were back in the good ole High School days. Oh there is one good thing that happened though! At least there is Pokémon Go that I have been playing and keeping myself entertained. Except when the servers are down which I feel is constantly right now. *sigh* Continuing on, I will keep my head up, and I will keep striding on. I will not give up, because giving up doesn’t ever solve anything. Once I really get back into gear with my creative side I think I will be happier and once things start going more the way I had hoped, that will help also. As always though, I will write again and I’ll try to challenge myself with coming up with some sort of short story, or an idea at least. I need to anyways not only for myself, but also for any animations for school. Thanks for reading, and I shall return!
