Rather lengthy but very important journal incoming!
Both for friends, complete strangers, long-time followers and people who just got here.
Wew. There's so much to talk about. So much I want to write and tell you guys. 
Get a drink, get comfy, eat your possibly evil vegetables and enjoy it, as we look at the past, present and future of this place.
Blue Star 2000


First and foremost: I just wanted to say that there's a whole bunch of you here right now. Almost 2000 watchers, to be exact.
That's an absolutely insane number. Still it's very hard for me to imagine that there is such a large group people that has looked at the things I make.
Glad it's not at 3000 yet. Long-time followers may know why. Don't ask ;v;
You know I'm not just going to gloss over this. I mean, you already know what I'm going to say here. I'm not the best at expressing these feelings, but I think it boils down to
Thank you.

Why I Draw
Life has definitely been different this year. I've been interested in lots of different things
(working out, drawing, reading, etc.). Out of all of those, the one I like the most
(yet find ways to procrastinate on it OTL) is drawing.
After I came back from Japan, I haven't drawn for about a month.
I realized that my reason for procrastination is a combination of 
"I'm scared of not being successful" and "I'm scared of BEING successful."
(and hint of depression here and there, but that's for another day)
Sure, we're all afraid of failing (not being successful), but there was a part of
me that thought, "What if this DOES go well?" (Ego speaking right there, sheesh).
And with both of those, my conclusion was "If I don't try (draw) at all, I'll never know."
But that's exactly what brought me to my other realization:
"If I don't draw, I will NEVER draw."
Because it's so much easier to put things off than do it, facing the chance of failing.
(I think school is like this too; a lot of ki

-What is this?
Somewhere around May 2016 I started printing out some of my favorite bits of fanart and hung them up on a random wall in my house.
It's gotten so much bigger than I ever imagined, and I haven't even added all of them yet. 
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for making cool stuff! It always makes my day whenever I look at it.
And now: BEHOLD! For there has been yet another update!
Eh. It's getting really big. I'm gonna run out of wall *v*

-Whoa, so what does it look like right now?

My biggest love goes to Transformers. This series has taught me so many life lessons, given me thousands of times of laughter and joy, and well... it's gotten me through some very dark times of my life. Optimus is a character I look up to and strive to be. Peter Cullen, if you ever read this page, I thank you so much for giving life to this hero. There are hundreds of favorites I could list from the comics to the movies but I'll just generalize by saying I LOVE THEM ALL. :heart: Although, I do have to say (every)Ratchet, Nightbeat, G1 Wheeljack, Megatron, BW Dinobot, Movie Hound, G1 Devcon, G1 Bluestreak, Soundwave, Skyfire, Razorclaw, Armada Starscream, Armada Scavenger, Prime Breakdown, Prime Dreadwing, Dreamwave Fallen, and IDW Cyclonus are some of my favorites I have to name off! Hypocrite I know. XD

I don't know which one of the tv series are my favorite, but I will have to say it's a tie between: G1, TFPrime, Animated, and Beast Wars.

The comics are really hard to choose from since they are all so great and delve into some amazing myths and lore, and just expand more on so many characters from all the series!
Dreamwave, IDW, and Marvel UK/US FTW!!! :D

HISTORY OF TRANSFORMERS:
Transformers Armada and Beast Wars got me started into the series, and the long-since-extinct Dreamwave comics (more specifically War Within arc) solidified my adoration for sentient, adaptable mechanoids. As much as many fans dislike the movies, I really enjoy watching them all!
The very first action figure I received was an Alternators Wheeljack. I still have him, and he's the most special thing I possess. It was a gift from one of my good friends from my home state I had to leave behind in a hurry one day. He reminds me of the very few happy moments from my time in Michigan, and it's mother effing WHEELJACK! :D He will always bring a smile to my face, as he is one of my favorite Autobots of all time!

I hope to one day be able to give back to all the voice actors, writers, musicians, artists, and producers that have allowed this awesometastic saga to continue! :hug: You all are my heroes! :wave:

LIFE GOALS:
Thanks to some unfortunate circumstances, I will not be able to attend college for at least another 2 years. I will have to pay for it all by myself since my family, well... let's just say they don't support me and leave it at that. I really want to enter either the video game industry and work on designing video games, or pursue something with my art skills! Video games have also kept me sane over the years in hand with Transformers.
I also want to make it out to some of the Transformers Cons out there, like BotCon, TFCon, and AutoAssembly (that will be a HUGE trek for me).
If none of that works out, and for some miracle I have a ton of money to spend, I'd like to resume my training in becoming a pilot. I'd rather work with cargo than commercial though. Flying has been a huge part of my life and I was/am incredibly heart-broken I had to give it up because of more unfortunate circumstances. :(
Interests
  • Listening to: Chiptunes
  • Playing: Splatoon
I might leave this site for good sometime before the end of this year. I just can't find it in me to draw anymore. I am too depressed to do anything other than play video games on my days off from work. I'm really sorry to those I've made friends with on here. I really did like this website, but with me falling into this sinkhole of my own doing, I can't find the energy to maintain anything substantial anymore.

I can barely function and as much as I want to draw,  I find no satisfaction or joy in it anymore, and my drive to get improve or pursue a career related to it is dead at the moment. I realized how not creative I was, meaning how difficult it is for me to draw something that isn't from a game/show/movie/etc and something I created on my own. I just suck at it, and I hate it. What is the point at being creative if I can't create something new? I had this problem with music too. I can read and transcribe music all day, but trying to create a new tune/ or improvise was always damn near impossible for me to do.

Things are pretty crappy in my head right now, and I don't know how to make these thoughts of how worthless I am, and my works are to go away. My life has been so broken for so long, I feel like I've given up on trying to do anything other than make it to my day off (only to just stare at walls and maybe play games for a little bit). I really don't have anything left to give. I've spent so much time trying to improve, only to find disappointment and failure greet me again, and again. I haven't done anything I want to do, because I'm now incapable of doing it because I just don't care anymore. I've been thinking about going on a leave of absence from work so I can get some time to sort out my stuff, but I don't think I'll do anything anyways. So I don't know. I hate this. I wish I could be flying or making video games or something, but I'm not, and I don't have the drive to do anything I want to do anymore.

I always believed there are winners and losers in our society simply because of how our society works,  and I'm now sure I'm not going to do anything of value ever again. So what's the point of trying anymore.

Blah.

Sorry.
