Okay, I promised you all an update... So here goes!
I sorta had a rough week... My teachers have been really shitty and throwing major projects at us all at once, so that makes it a bit stressful... I had a field trip with bunch of people I don't know on Wednesday and ended up being alone practically the whole time... While I was having fun, I would have loved to have Jazz there with me to share my enthusiasm for nerd stuff...whereas no one else there really cared at all. We had lunch near the gulf though, and it was fairly serene, I even enjoyed the rain. It was just that all the walking and social anxiety made it a bit shit. I want to have a do-over with Jazz, hah!
And on Thursday, I went and engaged in some volunteer work. <3 I've really been wanting to do more, but with school and family stuff... It's difficult. We went to the food bank though, and made Backpack Buddies for kids without food on the weekends--we ended up doing enough work to feed over 5,000 hungry children.
Though some of the other peeps working kept leaving to fuck around... I ended doing twice as much work as some just to make sure I got enough work done to help the kids. Even though it was hard work, I put my sweat blood and tears (no tears...but sweat and blood yes! I cut my finger just a lil bit... X3 ) because I know that all that hard work will pay off to help people who need it... While I'm sad I can't see those kids face-to-face, I know I don't need the personal acknowledgement. I'm happy just knowing I helped people! I actually want to start volunteering twice a month... Any ideas?
As I said in my last journal, my grandmother had to be rushed to the hospital earlier this week... Her heart is failing. She had heart surgery two years ago, and now something is wrong with the valve. They don't think she can survive another surgery... We don't know what to do, or if she's actually dying... But it is having many detrimental effects on her health. I was in a major frenzy this morning, but I've calmed down... I'm holding on to a shred of hope...it's better to make the most of what you have, right? I'll be alright...hopefully she will too.
I've just been really tired these few days, and with my mom having a bad tooth (and continuously eating candy... >> )and being on edge (aka super angry) it's been...stressful. But I'm hanging in there, don't worry! I just hope I can go on a date soon, and get my tumblr started up too... :/ Are any of you guys interested?
Also, I'm currently sketching up a sorta-kinda-maybe pinup of my fursona! ^-^ I'm super excited for it, and I want to make it really awesome... I've missed digital art. ^-^
Speaking of... I bought some commissions from my best friends in need!
Please go check their work out and buy some more to help out if you can--both of them need it!
Beautiful work, eh? I thought Catt's was perfect for the bottom of my journal--if you don't want it there, please tell my miss kitty!
Also, wanted to show you guys this awesome raffle pic I won!
This artist has great work too, please check 'em out!
That's all I got for now... Hope everyone is doing well! I should be on more soon, and I'll do my best to keep you all up to date. Thanks for all the love and support, godspeed to you all!
P.S. I need some cute moving pixelated journal dolls of our fursonas. X3
