I wrote most of this on New Years Eve but never submitted it. Here it is over a week into the year. That's just how I roll.
Howdy, y'all. Happy New Year.
How's your 2016 been? Terrible amirite lololololol--
Seriously, though, the year wasn't that bad for me personally, besides famous people I like dying and GF ending. It wasn't that great either, but that's pretty normal for me. Anyway, while I was waiting for midnight to strike (California time), I started writing some details about the past year of my life that I felt like sharing. Enjoy.
I finished two semesters of college. They were spiritually painful. Interesting though. I got 3.5 and 3.76 GPAs in each, and I got on the Dean's List for the first one! And I didn't fail a class this time!
It took a lot of work to get this good, and that kept me from drawing, unfortunately (though I won't pretend I'm not a total fatass when I'm not
doing schoolwork). Here's hoping I learn to balance school and my hobbies next year.
I did a few fun things this year. In March I saw Cage the Elephant, Silversun Pickups, and Foals all at the same event, and they were all amazing. (Bear Hands was there too, but I arrived late and only heard "Giants".) During the summer I won tickets to see Beware of Darkness. I'd only heard two songs of theirs when I won, but they definitely made me a fan. Later on I got to see the Offspring at the county fair. I was late for them too, but I still got to see a great show. (My one regret is that I didn't see Nothing But Thieves when they came...;-;.) As for non-musical stuff, I went to the coast for a whole week with my family. I finished my summer by going camping and hiking with my cousins. Both of these trips were really fun.
I HAVE A CAR. AND A LICENSE. FINALLY. As of September I no longer have to ride the city bus to school. I drive a 2002 Saturn; it's pretty sweet (but I have to give it to my sister when she drives, but whatever). Funny story, I actually scratched the door the Monday after I passed the test.
Besides that, I'm pretty good at driving, so don't worry about me.
I voted. That's all.
Christmas was alright. I got some gift cards from my parents (I'm waiting for something from Amazon...y'all'll see). More interestingly, one of my high school buddies bought me Undertale.
Yep. I haven't played it yet, but I will soon. I'm ready to be even cringier than usual. I also bought Pokemon Moon; I chose a Popplio and named him Jensen.
Art stuff has been okay. I still never draw frequently, which pisses me off, but at least I'm getting better. Plus I hit 200 watchers on this site (I assume only half of them are still active but whatever), I made my most popular picture ever (on DA)
, and I started making digital art, and I use Tumblr
now. (You should follow me there if you haven't yet btw. Please. I need more.)
If the year sounded totally radical dude, it's cuz those are only the highlights. Overall the year was pretty drab like usual. On the negative side, I still can't get a job, and I still don't have many friends in college. Still, I'm hoping to improve myself as the year goes on. Wish me luck yo.
More art on the way but probably not because you know how I am.
