      Wow. It's been quite some time since I've done one of these. But. Here goes:


      I could go on about how this site isn't really doing it for me, but I think my absence says enough. Also that 99% of the people I talked to are now gone and have decided to just hang out on other places like Facebook. Even though I'm not much of a fan, Facebook actually fucking works and navigating through it is like second nature at this point.


      Now. On with an update of sorts.


      I've had a bunch of free time ever since I finished that college thing I did for like 5 years. I now find myself officially an adult. I have a license that allows me to get paid whenever I work, since I'm freelance. Which means that next year I have to do taxes. Yaaaaaaaay (heavy amounts of sarcasm). But, I've also been trying to catch up on games I've missed in recent time and also buying re-mastered versions of games I owned a while ago. For example, Resident Evil 4 (personal favorite of the series).


      Me and a friend of mine are working on a couple of things at the moment. Since he and I aren't exactly working regular day jobs, we're letting our minds lose and seeing what comes from it. So far it's early stages for everything. Writing is rough. Words are hard. Also ADHD doesn't really help me either. In any case, it's still baby steps.


      Parents and brother are taking a cruise trip this upcoming Sunday. Which means I'll have the house pretty much to myself. I can't wait for all the parties that I'm not gonna be throwing because I prefer the solitude, not for my hate of people but because doing social things is stressful.


      And last but not least. I'm saving a bunch of money. One metaphorical jar is to finally move out of my parents' place whenever possible. Because...it's gonna be time for that pretty soon. And the other metaphorical jar of money is for leisure activities. I plan on taking a trip to the Japan land. And it's gonna be the most legit trip ever, because I said so.


      Anyway. That's really all there's to it. My life hasn't really been that interesting in the past couple of months. I went through a long break of everything related to Rooster Teeth. Main reason is because of time. Second reason because there's far too many things to watch. Third because most of it doesn't really appeal to me anymore. They've changed into something else. Not that it's necessarily "bad". If anyone in the creative field keeps doing the same damn thing over and over and over again, people are bound to forget them. It's just maybe that a lot of what they're putting out is not really for me. Though there's still a couple of things I've enjoyed watching. 


      I don't know. Whatever. I'm rambling at this point. Guess I'm done for now.


      Till next time. Whenever that may be.

      Hmm. I believe it was like 4 days ago. Totally missed it. I was super doing other shit. Lol


      Guess I don't really have much to say. I could do the whole shout-out list thing. But there's too many people and like...98% don't even come online anymore.


      So before everything gets even more awkward than it actually is, I'll say:


      I love you all. Well..love is a strong word.

      I TOLERATE you all. <3 <3


      Till next journal! (When I actually write something more than random incoherent sentences.)

    • Aaaand Done!

      3 years ago

      Its_Julius

      As of two days ago, I am officially done with the college and such. For good this time around. Spent like six years doing this thing. Two of them just jumping around from place to place. But. After a lot of trial & error, sleeples nights and weeks of what seemed like hell....it is over. Now on to the next thing in order. Making dat cash so I can finally move out of my parents' place. Not that I'm a selfish prick. But I feel like I should at least try to live in the real world. Baby steps though. I'm actually thinking about moving with my grandmother first. She's been all by herself ever since my grandfather passed away. I've been staying with her some weeks ever since last semester. And it was actually convenient, cause college was like a 5 minute drive from her place. But now that it's over, she'll just be there by herself once again. And it's not like I'm gonna be there like an asshole doing not a damn thing, being fed. I'll actually be working on a couple of projects that have risen.


      So, anyway. That's my once in blue moon journal. Till next time!

    • One of those Nights

      3 years ago

      Its_Julius

      I really don't like to do whiny one-liner journals. I feel like it should be a more complete thing rather than just a random thought..like facebook or twitter. But it's just one those nights (just like the title says) in which you realize that you've been rocking it solo for a while. So of course I'm going straight for the power-ballads.


      Anyway. That's about it. I didn't really feel like telling one of my friends, cause they'll probably think I'm just messing with them or joking. Which to be fair...I do constantly. So. I just wrote it here.


      Welp. Have a good one!

    • Been A While

      Its_Julius

      It's currently 1:50 AM and I find myself here writing one of these. As the title says, it's been a little bit since my last journal. I normally don't do this much cause I never know what to write in them. So I figured in this one I'd make a little update on how things are going/what's happening. Here goes.


      Semester started. And this time when I say it's the last one for me, it really is the last one. I'm almost done with it, actually. Just April & the first half of May left. And I only take classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so. A whole lot of not much remains for me to finish.


      I was kind of losing my mind last year cause there were too many things going on with my life at the same time. Without getting too deep, it was things that affected me in a negative manner. Hell, I couldn't get anything done without shit going south. But I'm glad this year seems heading in the complete opposite direction so far.


      So far I've worked on 3 things this year. One of them being a TV series, which opened up an opportunity to work on a Movie, which then opened up another opportunity to work on a Short Film. As it turns out, knowing people and making connections is the way to go. I already knew it, but I still felt like I needed to finish college for whatever reason. Also my parents insisted pretty hard on me finishing college.


      Anyway. Last year I was hoping on finding this much work at a fast pace like this. But last year I was still "The New Guy" (along with two other dudes) and well...people prefer to work with people they've worked with before. I wasn't one of those people. But the film industry in Puerto Rico is pretty small. Everyone knows who everyone is. My luck has gone up, though. I'm slowly but surely getting recognized by people and I'm getting more calls for more projects. And now that I keep getting called for stuff, I wish I had some time off. I love this job, but MAN...it's hell sometimes.


      Funny how shit works out. First I was hungry for more work. Now I'm hoping for a week off. Goddammit, life. Whatever. I'm gonna stop now before I go on boring everyone with my life.


      So...That's it! I guess. That went better than expected.


      Till next time!

      Right. So here's a quick journal after like a month of not writing a goddamn thing. Here goes:


      2015 has definitely been an interesting one for me. I gained things. Lost other things. Had its ups & down. If there's at least two highlights it would be: 1) Going to this year's RTX. 2) Working on an award winning production, which was...just an incredible honor, really. Outside of that...I don't think I have anything else to say about 2015. As per usual, Holiday times have been a little rough cause of reasons. And...that's it, I guess. I have nothing.


      Now. I don't usually do the new year's resolution & whatnot, cause I think it's kind of bullshit. But. If there's one thing I want to do (or NOT do) in the upcoming year, is to not get so emotionally invested in things that either don't matter or won't go the way I want them to.


      Anyway. That's it for this journal.


      See ya on the other side! Happy 2016.

    • And just like that...it begins

      Christmas time. A time in which people are supposed to be happy. Commercials everywhere bombarding you with special discounts. Christmas music blasting from every corner. Good times being had all over the place.

      Unfortunately for me, this means the total opposite. Christmas time for me is when all of my bad memories come hitting me twice as hard. It's because the majority of my bad memories have been around this time of the year. It's also a time in which I am constantly reminded of how alone I am and will be. There's a lot of emptiness that comes with it. And I know that I should't let bad memories or being alone keep me from having a good time. But, I can't help it. That's just how shit happens for me. It's as if my brain was programmed to remind me of these things at this time of the year. Hopefully one year I'll manage to get over it and actually enjoy Christmas. Doesn't look like it's going to be this year though.

      Two good things though. I got myself a PS4 with a couple of games. And Christmas time also means cold weather. I enjoy that. I sleep better for some reason. Is that weird? It's weird, isn't it? Whatever. I'm taking a little break.

      To the reader: Enjoy the holiday season!

    • A LITTLE UPDATE ON STUFF

      3 years ago

      Its_Julius

      It's been a while since I've made a proper journal. Seems to be how I start many of these, but...screw it. Here we go.

      Alright. So in the last month I've been nothing but busy. I am currently working on 3 shorts. In one of them I'm the director. In the second one I'm the editor. And in the third one I'm the DP (once again). Which means that I've had to put my Photography project on hold. I should get back to it on this Winter break though.

      The second project has been nothing but a bastard. Everyone is super disorganized and they're filming at a very slow pace. I'm talking filming 1-3/8th's of a single page per day kind of slow. And our deadline is in about 2 weeks. They also haven't given me anything to start editing, or well...putting together. After they're done filming and I'm done putting it together, they're supposed to do some voice-over stuff. Which I will then add to the rest of it, do whatever else I have to do and finish editing. I told them to just cancel the project since we have so little time. They still want to do it. So...that'll end badly. I'm ready to not put my name in the credits and not associate myself with this one. My expectations for this one are at an all-time low.

      Now. Work life aside.

      I've been spending a lot of time by myself, kind of figuring shit out. As it turns out, I graduate on May 2016. Thought it was this December. But, whatever. What's another 6 months? But then after that. What do I do? I have to wait until there's a filming thing to actually work. Should I get a part-time job while I wait? I don't know. So I'll have to deal with that shit. Then there's the me moving out of my parent's place. Where do I go? How do I go? When do I go? Another wonderful thing to figure out. Future Me sure has a lot of shit on his shoulders. He'll figure it out, though. He always does. Working under pressure is his specialty.

      Anyway. I think that's it for now. There's not much that I can add to it. So....guess I'm done.

      Till next time!

      So that happened. This is very interesting. From their appearances at Rooster Teeth events & such, I was wondering if they would eventually be part or the RT team. I only know them for one show. Death Battle (btw fuck Superman)...and that's a pretty good show. Much like the Funhaus guys (previously Inside Gaming) we'll just have to see how things work out. I also only knew Inside Gaming for their one thing. The Steam Roulette thing. That was hilarity after hilarity. So yeah! Fuck it! I'll watch their stuff. As usual, YouTube & Reddit are going to flip their shit though. Cause....Youtube & Reddit.

      I'm giving you a warm fuzzy cause you're an awesome person and that Arnold conversation last night was really funny.
      Thanks for always being into the content I make, no matter what it is.
      You're probably one of the first people to come to my message box when I'm upset or having a problem which is totally awesome.
      Don't stop doing you. :)
