Yup, it's that time of the year again where it's no longer that year again and it's another year again again
I have not posted a journal since summer last year, ha ha wtf So yeah, quick updates.
I'm sick again. I'm sick of getting sick. I never used to get sick this often, what is happening to me
My ears feel all stuffy and my throat hurts, been sneezing a lot more. So yeah, I have to take the next couple days off work, which actually feels bad man, I kinda like my job and I feel bad about letting the team down.
Things at work have gotten better lately and it's not so much of a problem working there as it was earlier last year, mostly due to the old manager being fired and new shift leads being brought in. Don't get me wrong, the old manager was a nice guy, he just wasn't actually managing the restaurant well. Plus the old shift lead racked up a ton of break violations that cost the company several thousands (jeeze) The two new shift leads are much better at managing the place, and one of them is pretty awesome, the guy bought me a drink at the local pub after we had a really rough night (There was only two people to run the place, me and him that night. WTF.)
The VN I was writing "The Halcyon Crusade" is shelved for now, "Thalassophobia" is shelved for the moment, as well until I can find a team that can help me on it. The Philippines Trip video will probably be done at a later time. I have a new, much smaller project I'm working on now.
I'm writing a Visual Novel called "Nekomimi in Boots" which is based on the story I started writing years ago called "Neko in Boots". It's meant to be smaller, simpler, not meant to be taken 100% seriously. I want to get it done and published before September this year. It's heavily based on the fairy tale "Puss in Boots" but given an anime-inspired twist with Puss being a cute catgirl named Ariana. Wish me luck.
Bought myself a core membership on DA again because I'm tired of the video ads suddenly kicking in. Feh.
Overwatch is still awesome and I highly recommend it. Also love "Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator".
Sorry I stopped doing the Lets Plays but I just don't see it as a thing I should continue doing. Besides I already completely played through "Rise of the Tomb Raider" plus the DLC so yeah. Will probably just play Undertale through and through as well without recording it. Starting a Youtube Career is just too difficult right now based on what I've seen, heard, and experienced. The algorithms and rules of the site have changed tremendously in the past few years and made it very difficult for anyone to get started on YT as a career, what with the over-saturation of gaming channels, corporate BS mucking up who gets views over others, copyright claim abuse, and so on. Plus, as I said, it was distracting me from working on my projects more then helping.
That's it for now. May update later if I think of something else to add.
