    • Short Update, Hi there!

      @BeepBep and all my GGG peeps... I feel like I'll be so out of place hopping back in after so long...


      Past 2 months have been really busy, I got an apartment and moved into said apartment. Still trying to set everything up. It's nice having quiet though. I feel like I work too much to enjoy my time home, and even if I do it passes by so quickly.


      Oh well, I think it'll get better.

    • Life Update? That's a thing? Maybe I should do one....

      SO HERE IT IS!

      So where did we last leave off? 10 months ago? Damn.


      Since then I got the job at a Regal Cinemas only about 10 minutes away from where I live. It's nice, (most) of the people are great, and I don't hate it so.....that's good? Yeah! Since I started working though, and attending the GGG Summer meetup, I've taken part in very few Game Nights. I miss you guys, I wish I had a more regular work schedule that'd allow me to play with you guys......


      Still having slight money issues, having parents that don't know how to handle money either will do that to a person. I'm slowly working on it though, which is good. On the better side of things, I've now been with my SO for over a year. I love her quite a lot. I'm a mushy person  blue_heart She graduates in may with her bachelors and we're getting a place together (which is super exciting) near the College/Uni so I can continue my education.


      Education...Careers...

      I won't lie. I thought I knew what I was doing, but I don't. I started an animation course, haven't enjoyed it half as much as I thought I would. So, I've been out of class for a year with no clue what I want to do. I just want to travel, but that doesn't pay bills. That's my biggest dilemma right now. I don't seem to be passionate about anything  confused


      SO WHAT'S NEXT?  

      I'm not sure. I'm gonna continue working, making money and trying to save some meaningful amount. Difficult to do on Ohio's minimum wage, which hopefully gets a bump in the near future but I'm not too optimistic. I am trying though.


      Trying to be a good SO


      Trying to be financially responsible


      Trying not to go insane in a house of 8


      Trying to find meaning in life


      I am trying though...


      AND THAT'S WHAT MATTERS

      I don't....eh, keep it a secret I've been low on funds for.....well, my entire life.


      Until now! (Or a few days from now, hopefully)


      I got a call back today from a Movie Theater I applied at a little before christmas, at which I had an interview last Wednesday, and I got the job! I have to go in tomorrow to pick up some paperwork and I start training shortly after.


      I'm super excited, and slightly nervous. But, Oh well. This can only be a good thing.

    • Christmas Post-Show

      Christmas was 2 days ago at this point. I've used these days to recover my strength.

      With 7 people in the house, the holidays are quite a spectacle. So, let's review shall we?


      It began with this year's RT secret santa. From which, I got these amazing socks:

      A few days later, I finally received my Secret Santa @Hnnolch which included some sweet custom AH stickers:

      Then it was Christmas!

      And what a Star Wars Christmas is was.

      Oh, can't forget the DW

    • 15 Days Until Christmas! Also some other stuff too.

      My profile picture isn't nearly as festive as it should be...time to dust off my Photoshop skills!


      In other news:


      Got my RT Secret Santa gift out early this year. According to Amazon it was delivered yesterday, so I'm hoping to hear from my recipient soon. Included a witty little card that I'm more proud of than I should be. Still wondering who my SS is this year, hmm...


      Spent a whole lotta money this past week. Got approved for my first credit card, and I'm starting to build up credit. (Yay! Adult things!) I do love online shopping a bit too much though so I gotta be careful about that....Bought a few christmas gifts, new scarf for the girlfriend among other things.


      Might've spent $100 on a Booster Box of XY Breakthrough Pokemon cards. Sorry, couldn't help it. I love collecting them too much. Shiny things. At least I had the money to spare.


      Did get a lot of supplies to take care of my painted turtle Samwell though. (Yes, Tarly)

      Filters, Food, Treats, Water Heater, New basking light. I can be responsible too you know :)


      Plan for the rest of the month:

      Dec. 10-16 Fuck around as much as possible, screw the rules! (I have nothing to do!)


      Dec. 17-20 The Girlfriend returns from Hell (College)! Binge watching all of the Star Wars films, then going to see The Force Awakens in IMAX 3D!


      Dec. 20-24 More nothing to do! Probably be festive and shit. Solid plan.


      Dec. 25 Christmas Motherfuckers! Time with family and girlfriend, spent with will I.


      Dec. 26-30 Fifth verse same as third & first!


      Dec. 31 New Years! Might be in NYC, don't know for sure yet. If not, more time with family.


      I'm gonna leave you with this, something amazing:

    • 3D Modeling & Animation UPDATE!

      3 years ago

      pokeplato

      Now that I'm a few weeks in to the Fall semester I think It's a good time for an update! My modeling & animation class is going great and I'm really enjoying it. Our first assignment was to model a "Drone" and animate it flying through a landscape we created using heightmaps. It was fun and easy but I, being the person that I am, didn't think that was enough so I've been practicing modeling on my own and getting ahead of the class.

      So I thought I'd share just a few things I've made in my free time!

      A Game Boy I modeled after my first day

      A space ship I modeled after learning how to smooth objects.

      and a Sniper Rifle I started 3 hours ago, showing off what I learned about lighting and shadows. It's a work in progress but I'm reeeeeaaallly liking it so far.

      So yeah, there is an update xD If anyone gets this far....let me know what you think!
