I wanted to replace my last journal and give you guys an update on things. I'm feeling a little better about the issues I've been having lately. I'm not sure why, I guess I've grown tired of moping about the problems I'm already tired of. I'm still not satisfied with things as they are, but I might as well make the best of it. To those of you who commented on my last journal, thank you. Though I have to admit, I'm disappointed by the amount (only 4), I thought I had more friends I could count on than that, but I guess you guys don't really understand what I'm going through. The end of this infernal semester is less than a month away (Thank God), so hopefully, I can get back to drawing soon, but it won't be for long, since I have to take summer classes if I want to graduate before Fall of next year and finally be done with college.
So, feeling somewhat better, Sorry for the drama, and so forth.
In other news, my mom got a copy of Frozen
and I intend to watch it soon. Finally, I can find out why Elsa has become the new Loki of
(Don't deny it, you know she is). It seems like it's just because she's another pretty face with ice powers, but there's got to be more to it than that. I imagine the reasons for her wide fandom are more justified than Loki's blown-out-of-proportion-fandom. When you think about it, Loki is really just a ungrateful, callous, attention-seeking, spoiled-brat that deserves no sympathy, nor the right to be king of anything (He's still an awesome villain though).
This weekend, the Gateway Furmeet in St. Louis MO is finally coming, which I'm really excited for. In case you forgot, I'll be there as a security volunteer, contributing to making this newborn con into a successful one that will carry on for years to come. Some of the details are a little sketchy, I still don't even know my final schedule, but everyone involved seems to be busy in their own lives, including me, but I think we can pull it off. I may also get the chance to get a first hand look at some fursuiters and furry artists. It should be fun!
Since I'm on the subject, I might as well say it. I don't know how many read my most recent journal about me trying to become a fursuiter (here's the link if you need a refresher: sycotei-b.deviantart.com/journ…
. I actually had a reason for why I wrote it at the time that I did. There is a fursuit builder (out of respect for their privacy, I won't name them) I've been following for a while and they had scheduled when they would open commissions soon and I tried to apply for a commission slot. I had high hopes that I would get one, but unfortunately, they didn't accept my application. They only open commissions for one full day and then close for months to work on the list they have and they get such high demand, that they have to pick and choose a few from the many and mine just didn't make the cut. So that was a big letdown, but at least I tried. This builder did state that each time you apply for a slot, they give you a higher chance of actually getting one, so hopefully next time I'll have better luck. I just wish I didn't have to wait 7+ months to try again, I've waited long enough as it is. I could always look for another builder, but this particular one is the only one I really trust with my costume concept. So we'll see how that goes.
I guess that's about it. So smell ya'll later!
