I can never think of anything witty to call them other than "update"... >_>
I figure I should write new journals once every month or so... Just to keep everyone informed of what is going on. It keeps my account active, and for those who are worried about me, it gives you some piece of mind. *Nods*
And just so you all know, I just had a shower and I smell REALLY good! 0_o
Anyhow, back to the purpose of this journal.
So, a couple of things.
To start, this Christmas will be my first, in 16 years, that my Baby-chan (Jewels) won't be with me. I also won't have Jiji this year either. It is taking a toll on my emotions for sure, and with this weather and my depression, I'm none to motivated to do much of anything.
However, I am still trying my best to trudge along, even though the pace is slow. At least I am going faster this year than last year; thanks to my CPAP machine, and my counseling. So there is still hope for me this winter. I do have to admit though, I'm still unsure whether or not I want to decorate my house... or put up a tree for that matter. I don't really have a place to put a tree now that my fiance and I reorganized the house. Not to mention my cats like to climb into the tree and knock the glass ordaments off. They broke loads of them last year. Even if I put up plastic ones, if they get knocked off, my dog will find them, and chew them to bits... UGH
On the happier side of things, I FINALLY have an official wedding date! May the 4th! NOW, before you start making jokes about "May the 4th be with you"
, just note that that is NOT why I picked the date. I didn't even know about the Star Wars Day until after I choose it. And as much as Star Wars is all cool and such, I am not the type of person that cares about these made up days/months. Most of them I think are stupid, and/or extremely sexist... So please refrain from joking about it, because I just find it annoying... I like Star Wars, but it doesn't run my life. Plus, in all honesty, I'm a Trekkie, and I have been since I was a little girl. But even than, I would probably think a Star Trek day would be stupid. So yeah. I'm a geek, but I'm not an extremest... Ever since Star Wars 1-3, I've lost a lot of interest in the franchise. So I'm not too please about this May 4th thing.
Anyway, back to the wedding. It is really nice to have an date set in stone. I've been flip flopping back and forth with my mother for the last 2-3 years, and I'm really done with it. A deposit has already been made on the place we are using, so there is no backing out now; and that is actually a relief.
So this year I have a LOT more energy to do Christmas baking! The last two years I have barely done anything... I always loved baking with my mom when I was a kid, and I'm a sucker for baked goods. If they weren't so bad for you, and gave me terrible heart burn, I'd bloody LIVE off baked goods! I try to save my indulging for Christmas. That way I have an excuse once a year to just let go and pig out! Mind you, my stomach is SO small now that I am unsure exactly how I'm going to eat 3-4 Christmas dinners in one week! >_<
Oh, oh! And guess what? I has a car now! Yay!
Currently it needs repairs, so it is at my dad's shop, but once it is fixed, and I take my driver's test, I'll finally be able to drive! Haha! No more transit for me!
I am hoping to join a gym in the new year. I have to pay off a balance that I owe from my last gym membership, but once I do that, I'll be able to go again. Now that I have a car, all I have to do is take the 5 minutes to drive there and I'm good! So far I have lost 30lbs since June! However, with Christmas coming up, and all the meals and treats, I'm going to need a gym to keep the pounds off for my wedding. If I work REALLY hard, hopefully I can lose another 50lbs to 80lbs. I'm so tired of being over weight. Though I can at least be proud of myself for losing 70lbs in three years.
I gained so much fat from my medical stuff that I went from 170lbs to almost 300lbs! It was TERRIBLE. However, I'm shedding the pounds now that I can actually get out of the bed and walk around. I am pretty sure I'm going to need to incorporate a exercise routine over the winter anyway, because the weather is here is normally too awful for me to take my puppy to the dog park, and get a work out that way.OKAY. SO HERE IS A BIG QUESTION I HAVE FOR ALL OF YOU.
Would anyone be interested in reading a short webcomic series of mine? I've been considering making one for years, but never actually did much about it. The other night though, I had this crazy dream and now I have an idea for a webcomic.
I don't know how OFTEN I would post updates. What would you all prefer? I could do something like:
*Once a week inked and shaded
*Once every two weeks with basic colour
*Once every three weeks with full blown colour, and detailed backgrounds
*Once a month with full color, detailed backgrounds, and more panels on each page
Which do you guys like better?
The themes for this comic is medieval, war, and revenge. I have no samples currently, but I'll probably get some character profiles up soon.
Oh, and by the way, I wanted to thank everyone for all your support regarding my last journal. It really meant a lot to me! You guys are awesome.
Until next time my lovelies, "I'm up, over, and gone!"
