I think this has been the longest I've ever gone without writing a journal.
1. Got new phone (Blackberry Passport)
2. My Mom got a new job!
3. I had a job interview today and have a follow-up interview Monday
4. Class advisement appointment tomorrow
5. Wisdom teeth getting taken out this Tuesday
6. School again on the 17th.
This has been the longest summer for me, and I actually didn't like it feeling so long. It's been a little stressful in terms of my mom's lack of employment and the pressure from family for me to get a job-- not to mention being in this part of my life where I don't know what I'm doing or where I'm going, and if I'm making the right choices. They don't warn you about those things in high school.
To be truthful I haven't really been on DA a whole lot. Don't get me wrong, I still get on at least once a day to check on deviations and journals but that's about it. I spend most of my time over on Lioden-- which legit isn't an art site.
No I'm not leaving-- but I do think I'll let my subscription run out since I'm not super active anymore.
GoaL is...I don't even know anymore. I'm gonna be completely honest here: The Korra finale didn't sit well with me. Like omg I am VERY happy that Korra and Asami got together mostly just because of what it did for the LGBT community. And it's pretty cool to see that in a kid's show. But, yes I'm bummed that my pairing didn't happen. More than that I was just disappointed with how it was wrapped up and how they went about things. For me there wasn't enough of a build up for Korrasami. Like I guess it was there, but I always interpreted it as friendship. Mako still obviously had a thing for Korra, and Korra was so wrapped up in herself (which I was glad, because Korra comes first before her romantic escapades) that there just wasn't a lot of room for romance, and what room there was still had lingering indication of Makorra. And I know lots of people would disagree with me. And I'll always love Korra and the creators because it's been such an inspiration to me and brought me a lot of joy. I'm not bitter at Korrasami shippers-- I just wish that they would have made it more obvious that they were going to be a thing, because it would have made the transition for me easier.
Again, totes excited that Korrasami became a thing-- just wished they would have went about it a little differently.
Ending aside, I got into other fandoms (Black Lagoon, Attack on Titan, and have been revisiting Bleach), and lots of life stuff came up.
I want to focus on my own pursuits-- my personal writings and my art. But I don't feel like DA is the place for it. That sounds really strange, I know, since it is a website dedicated to sharing creative outlets. I need to get back to my roots.
So this is an official hiatus. I'm not posting anything on DA again for an undetermined amount of time. I'll still be checking in, favoriting, commenting, and responding. If that ever changes I'll be sure and make another journal with information on how else to get in touch with me.
Stay snazzy, folks! <3
