THIS JOURNAL IS A RANT.
Inb4 Yes, I am [still] alive. I don't need to be told that.
It's just been that I've been extremely busy in the past couple weeks or so, and relatively pissed off.
Let me just start with the bad news.
The bad news is that my laptop just fucking dies. Out of nowhere it just dies. And it's not even two years old. Let me fill you in on this a little bit. My laptop [was] a Macbook Air (I personally think Mac laptops are shitty) given to me as a birthday present from my parents, (apparently they think I like shitty Macbook computers) yadda yadda yadda. To the point, I had all of my artwork, thus far, scanned and saved onto my computer, along with pictures I hoped to post later on as well as my stories (also which I planned to post sometime). All that shit's gone, and now I have nothing left. It's fucking history. My man hours are all for naught.
Inb4 No, I don't have the time, money, or patience (especially time and money) to fix this goddamn thing. Even if I did have the money or time, the nearest CRAPple Store is about, two counties over. When I [supposedly] get there, i can't be bothered to ask an employee to help me because the service sucks, long story short. The thing I hate the most about this whole experience is having to wait in fucking line for 3+ hours. (If you're curious about why I hate the Apple store so much, I could explain in the comments.)
My laptop suffers from the commonly irritating problem known as the "flashing folder of death." I have read and seen tutorials on Youtube about how to fix this shit, and I have had absolutely no luck. Every one of these FAQs are telling me something different and it's confusing as fuck. I have absolutely no knowledge of hardware/software and all that bullcrap. The last tutorial I seen is testament to that. It was this Youtube video, which made me take a greater initiative on my part. So I took out the hard drive and replaced it with an external hard drive, (via USB port) and the shit still didn't work. I just said "Fuck it," and just buried that motherfucker back in its box, like a lost cause.
Inb4 I use another computer to scan, save, and upload to, as this is the next best thing (since I obviously can't afford another computer). It's a crappy Dell computer that sits in its original box [for storage] and weighs a ton to take out of the box and put it on my ridiculously small desk. Since the internal memory has been wiped from this thing too, [and transferred to my laptop] I have to put even more time and effort into replacing my shit. Unfortunately, I have to input the Wifi password every time I turn on the damn thing [and even when it comes back from sleep mode], the Internet is ungodly slow, and the screen display is permanently fucked up (since I can't adjust the color on the screen).
MORE BAD NEWS
Inb4 Yes, there's more bad news, just not as lengthy.
I was working on a set of new drawings (three to be exact, all colored) and really haven't had the time to finish any of them in the time frame I had expected for them. This goes back to the beginning sentence, with me saying that I've been "terribly busy." No, I wasn't kidding. I have had to suffer aerial bombardment of college assignments, overtime at work, and family matters. Just shit I have to put up with on a daily basis, only raised to a larger power. I could go off on this, but i don't want to bore you, and there's little to nothing you can do to help me (I'm not being mean, I'm just telling the truth).
Now for the good news
I do have good news, [surprisingly] and I'm ready to explain.
The good news is that I've successfully completed one of the pictures I've had on my to-do list for quite some time (I have other pictures that desperately need to get done, but that harkens back to the bad news). For one picture, I had to overcome so much shit in an attempt to finally get it done (and I'll post it later today, I promise, just not now, it's late). It [will soon be show up] my gallery, as a testament to my hard work. Thank the Lord Almighty.
MORE GOOD NEWS
I have created a little side page at Kazzysstuff (on Deviantart), affiliated with my main [Deviantart] account. This will be for things like random doodles, stamps, memes, [possible] gifts, and other crap I have done, not really having to do with my characters. Inb4 I'm [still] setting it up, but give me time, I have plenty of shit to post to that motherfucker. In fact, I'll make an official journal stating when it will be open for visitors.
So yeah, that's all I have to [bitch] about for now, see you next time with [hopefully] more comments, more journals, and most importantly, more art. See you in the near future. ;)
Please leave a comment or two, I would highly encourage it.
This journal is also on Deviantart (better quality version).
