I've disappeared from the community the past couple of months. In that time a lot in my life has happened, thus the reason why I haven't been on here much. With ending off high school and being neck deep in crew work and other life spectacles, I started my summer break by going to a festival and returning too the all-too-sudden news of my family moving. Our house finally sold and the month of June was such a hellish month that basically half of my summer has been swallowed due to stress and in some parts anxiety haha.
I now live in the city of Chicago, in a not so great part of town. I live in a condo with my parents and dog.
My parents are now divorced officially; and really this is good news because they've been dragging the "separation-train" for years now and all it has done is create stress. BUT, due to the fast news of the house selling my mom had no time to find herself a home and is now sleeping at my dad's for a few weeks until she finds her own place. (This place can only fit so many people).
I got a summer job at a lighting warehouse, called Intelligent Lighting Creations. It's a great job for me, just that in the month of june I got put full time when I asked for part time. so 8-5 every weekday. I now work part time though so blessed be.
As for some artsy news, the pins I have created have been favored by many and my first batch of the wolf pins is *almost* sold out. But due to the move I have halted on advertising thus sales have gone stale.
I am officially going to DePaul University The Theatre School for a BFA in Lighting Design as well, and will be dorming there. It is my top choice and very grateful for being accepted. I will be one of the four LD students, only four slots open in the program.
The whole move shebang has been extraordinarily stressful. Had no hot water or gas for two weeks, 35-60 minute drive to work and friends, can't come home late due to the part of town, and just got wifi today (hence the journal post). As well as, a suburban raised dog adjusting to city life is tough.
Life has been rough, but I'm finally getting air to breathe haha. I cleared out my dA account too to make going through messages tolerable as well. Now excuse me, as I go do my laundry that has been in the bag for three weeks due to no dryer working haha. Huzza!
Life! You've done it again my friend.
