Well everyone! It's the final day of August, so that means that summer is now officially over and we're going to start moving into spooky season. How fun! I want to keep this entry pretty short and sweet today, I'm feeling a little tiredt. But, overall, I think August was a pretty relaxing and uneventful month for me. I definitely could have worked on my site and game some more...but I was so busy job hunting and working on art that it just got pushed to the wayside. I also...took a lot of time to rest and be unproductive...and there's nothing wrong with that (getting rest is just as important as being productive)! Either way, tomorrow is a new month, filled with new hope and possibilities! See you all in September!!
Today's entry is brought to you by existential crisis! Just when you thought things were going to get better! In all seriousness, I'm feeling a bit blue tonite...job searching takes a lot out of you! It really does. And when you're not getting any responses, it can get discouraging very fast! I don't have any other option other than to keep pushing forward, but sometimes it's hard to remain optimistic all the time. That's what makes me human, but it still sucks. Anyways, I think I'm just gonna take tonite to wallow in my own self pity, watch some Netflix and K-dramas, and hopefully get some type of work done, whether that's art or writing. I know what I'm feeling will pass, but for right now, I'm going to ride the wave hopefully into calmer waters and sunny skies. Wishing everyone a good night...
First off, lemme just say that to those who find this font and color hard to read...I really apologize. I thought this font was cute, but it's harder to read than I thought...also. I chose this color because for some reason, August reminds me of the color green (like a lime green) and a bright yellow? It's just one person who said this, but if anyone else is having issues...fear not! The colors for next month will be much easier to read! That's right! August is pretty much over already...and I'm STILL. JOB SEARCHING. Really hope that I get hired before September is over because job searching is seriously a pain in the ass for me. SIGH...but all I can do is just continue to move forward, work on ways to improve my Patreon, and hope something will come my way soon. I honestly expected life after college to be more relaxing and fun...and while it has certainly been more relaxing (or maybe just less stressful?)...idk about fun...especially since now everyone is going back to school and work and I'm just gonna be stuck at home for a while. Adulthood woes I suppose. Also, I've had kind of a rough art day...JUST BEEN FEELING KINDA BLEH, but that's because it's gonna be shark week soon, so yeah LOL. This feeling will pass before I know it and I will be feeling better. Anyways, off to continue working on art. Revamping a lot of old references for the site, so please look forward to that!!

OMG that concert took so much out of me, but that was literally the BEST NIGHT of my entire life. I'm not even joking. I was jumping, yelling, crying...IT WAS AMAZING my throat was so sore by the end of the night lmfao. It really sucked that one my biases, Jinsoul, was sick so she couldn't participate in the concert, but! At the end the girls sang my one of my FAVORITE B-SIDES, I was so shocked and happy. Hopefully next time they come to D.C., all 12 of them will be able to stand on stage and we will have a good time. Other that, I've been really doubling down on my job searching lately...summer is now pretty much over now and I have to get serious about securing a job...job hunting is just such a pain in the ass I want it to be over with SO bad. I've been applying to some pretty obscure positions, so hopefully something will come from that super soon...wish me luck!!
TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY...after 4 years of patiently and faithfully waiting...I'm finally going to see LOONA IN CONCERT...it's literally ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT all day. I was also able to get better tickets at the very last minute, HOW LUCKY IS THAT. It's destiny! This is a literal dream come true for me. Aside from that, I've been pretty MIA because I've been busy (trying) to work on art and get into writing more. My writing is...pretty mediocre atm, but I really hope that I can be able to improve it. Maybe there are videos on Youtube about how to become a better writer? I hope so, that would be pretty useful! Anyways! I'm going to (try) and sleep so that I can get up early to head over to the venue early. I heard half of the fun is waiting in line! Anyways, see you guys tomorrow after the concert!!!! >:]
Hey everyone! It's been a little bit, but I've been a little busy. I have to save up money for a new iPad because the battery is deteriorating (Apple products, lmfao), searching for jobs, and getting ready for the concert...the concert...OH THE CONCERT. I'm still super excited, but I'm getting more and more nervous as it gets closer. It's in 6 days and I'm starting to get a little jittery. Please tell me why I log on to my private account to check on my friends and I'm seeing posts that the crowd @ the LOONA concert tonite was being SO RUDE and loud that one...no, two of the girls walked off stage...I know this shouldn't get me down personally because I'm not even there and have nothing to do with that, but IT'S SO FUCKING EMBARRASSING. Like, oh my God! I am literally so fucking mortified right now. This is their first time on tour in America and this problem with rudeness or whatever tf is going on seems to be a common issue w/ most of the venues lol. Probably because they're so small but...God. I guess I'm just really worried that something like that will happen during the concert I'm going to. It almost makes me not want to go...but, gdi I JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN. I want my cousin to have fun, I want the girls to have fun, I want everyone to have fun! To see that the vibes can be ruined so quickly really sucks. It also sucks because one of my friends went to the show tonite and MAN...I can only IMAGINE how shitty it must be to be in there right now. I hope people at the concert I'm going to just fucking behave theirselves...this shouldn't even be an issue...kpop fans I swear, LOL. ANYWHO. I just had to get that off my chest. The 2nd hand embarrassment was overwhelming, so I just had to get that off of my chest...but I'm going to try to work on my webcomic and other things right now. Hopefully, I can actually STAY focused and get some work done tonite. Wish me luck!

HHGHHH....wanted to write an entry today but, I'm extremely tired...! So very tired...did a lot today. Maybe tomorrow...zzz
ANOTHER DAY...another day of potential job opportunities not calling me back. Seriously, job hunting is the WORST. My parents tell me to be patient and to enjoy my freedom while I can, which is true, but like. Also. I want to earn money so I can move OUT and other important things like that. But, complaining isn't gonna help it happen faster, so I should just try to be optimistic and keep it pushing. RIGHT NOW...I don't know how I feel about this font...IT WAS CUTE IN THEORY...but in reality, it's kind of harder to read than what I was expecting hmm...oh, well! I'll keep this font for the rest of the month and see what I can change to for September. GEEZ...next month is really September. Summer is over~. Oh, well. Like I said I'm pretty excited for my first Autumn out of school. JUST GOTTA TRY AND REMAIN OPTIMISTIC! Anyways, I'm rambling now. I'm going to go work on Red & Teresa some more and then work on my game some more. I'm going to have to work hard and promote my Patreon this month, so I can save up to buy a new iPad. Which will hopefully be sooner than later! MAKING PROGRESS...VERY SLOWLY BUT SURELY.
Happy August!!! I Know I'm a couple of days late, but I spent the 1st coming back home from vacation and settling in and I spent yesterday hanging out with my little cousin because it was her birthday! But either way, INCREDIBLY EXCITED for the month of August (for once in my life.) To start, check out the new font! It's called "Beyond Magical" and I found it on dafont.com when I was looking for another font! It's pretty cute, so I might keep it for the blogging section. I'm just not sure how kaomoji's would look in this font, but we'll see! I've also added my to do list for the month below. There's a lot I want to get done, so hopefully, I'll be able to get through most of it! As I complete things, I will be crossing them off! Anyways, my day has been pretty uneventful. Just mostly working on art...relaxing...but I really need to get back into writing and working on my game! I just got off vacation, so it's hard to get back into the groove of things after not doing anything for a week, but I'm sure I will be able to get back into it by tonite or tomorrow. I am ALSO PREPARING TO MEET LOONA AT THE AIRPORT IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, I am super excited!!!!!!! I'm going to give them a card and pictures I'm going to draw of all the girls (even Chuu, even though she's not there, I hope they give it to her when they get back to Korea if they remember)!! Call me delusional, but I'm still going to try at least! Told my mom about how I'm gonna be going to their airport and why, and ofc all she did was kill my excitement and make me regret telling her. But, ignoring that, just generally very excited! Here's to a new month!
