Hello to all of my lovely watchers and friends who are still out there~
I'm sorry for such a long absence almost this entire year. There has been a lot that has been going on and I honestly have no idea where to begin with trying to explain any of it. I believe it was back around early February where I originally planned to start back up on all my artwork and stories and continue to upload and be a lot more active on DeviantART again. I began to work on my page and update everything on it and even start doing commissions. There was some issues though and this year had started becoming extremely difficult shortly after I was doing this and anything involving DA got put on the back burner, and I had to start focusing on what was going on around me in real life. The first week of the beginning of the year already spelled out some issues for later on and I wont get into detail on what but we got that under control now. I also had got a different job in late February and became full time after a short while and that has been another reason why I haven't been on here on top of everything else. Now, It was..I think a month or two after I originally got this job and things were doing pretty good in general for everyone for a while but...we had noticed a bit of a decline with my Nana who's lived with my family and I almost my entire life. We thought she may have caught pneumonia like she has in the past but when we took her to the hospital they noticed something else in the films. They informed us that the breast cancer that she had and had a successful surgery for a few years ago has come back and spread into her body. They didn't know how long she would have had...We went through a lot after hearing that. We took care of her at home with help of some hospice nurses that came to the house to take care of her with us. My mom and sister were doing so much...Things were declining fast though over a short period of time... even one week turned into a drastic difference with how she was and it got to the point where she stopped talking or eating. She was put into hospice care in a different location so she could stay comfortable...she passed away in her sleep in hospice. This entire year has almost been a complete blur in my mind from the beginning until now to be completely honest. There were very few things that happened that were very good this year...I won't get into those other things because they're pretty insignificant compared to what I mentioned above. My family and I are still grieving and her Birthday just passed on the 24th too. My birthday was the 23rd and we always celebrated it at the same time. I miss you, Nana. I love you. We all do.
This is what has been going on this year. I said it earlier and I really did put all my art work and stories on the back burner and they're just now coming back to the forefront starting about a week ago. I just couldn't really bring myself to focus on it anymore...I was somewhat doodling once in a while in my sketchbook with pen but...I haven't really been able to just sit back and draw like I used to all night long anymore. I really miss doing that, it was a nice just drawing and listening to music. I may be starting back up again with everything but I still won't be able to do as much as I'd like because I do have my full time job now and I actually became a manager at the store and even when I'm off I still get called on my cellphone to get asked questions by my co-workers all the time. I love my job and my co-workers but they drive me crazy sometimes now. lol Let's get back to the original subject though~ My artwork. It's official that I'm back and I'm here to stay. I gotta renew my membership on here because I don't plan to be going anywhere and I want DeviantART to be my lovely place to be again and be back on with my old friends~ Speaking of which...I really appreciate the Happy Birthday messages on my Skype account. I really appreciated that immensely and since I logged on I viewed some of the notes you guys have sent to me since I've been gone. I honestly thought you guys would've forgot me by now. I've really missed you all and this site and I look forward to being back on here with you all starting today. Also, I'm happy to inform you all about one thing~ I have a new laptop and tablet. I can do all I want on this computer and I downloaded all the programs for art I need for the time being.
I think this journal explains what I felt I needed to say. Again, I've really missed you all and this account~ I'm gonna go check my old Tumblr account as well now. Thank you to also some of the new watchers I got recently since I haven't been on, I appreciate that a lot and I hope we get to know each other~ I hope to get in contact again with all my old friends and watchers again too soon.
I think this will be it for now but thank you all again and I hope to talk to you all later~
