It's late May of 2021, and I just got sick.

By the title alone, one may conclude that nothing more need be said. But I'm going to say it anyway, because now I have something to write about. I'm sick. Again. For the umpteenth time. Happens once a year, at least. There is not a single year that goes by without me getting a cold at least once.…

It's raining so much right now...

It's been raining constantly for over a week now. In fact, this is how it's been for pretty much the majority of Australia's east coast. There's actually been reports of severe flooding nearby where I live. I've seen videos of it posted online. It's pretty crazy. It's gotten bad enough that even en…

Another New Year Awaits Us? Welp, here we go again.

My last journal update for this year. So yeah. 2020. I think we can all agree this was a truly unpleasant year... for literally everyone across the world. In fact, I would say this was by far the worst year I've ever experienced. And 90% of the time, I was hardly doing anything, except remaining in…

Happy Holidays (December 2020)

So Christmas has just passed. We didn't get a tree this year, but we did make cookies. Also I got a new desktop this year as a present of sorts. So that's a bonus. I'm going to start using it more often. The one I'm currently using is breaking down, and becoming a lot more harder to manage. The new…

My Birthday [October 15th, 2020]

I am officially Nineteen years old. It's weird. Like, okay. I'm getting older, and my birthday happened today. It wasn't really that special, not a whole lot happened today. But my gosh, I'm Nineteen. Granted, I still feel young, and I still feel like a teenager. It just feels strange, saying that…

I'm better already

Not much to say. Thankfully my sickness didn't last long. It was a small cold, and the symptoms have mostly faded away. I'm doing pretty well as of now. In fact, I don't think I am even contagious anymore. Since this morning, I have stopped isolating myself in my room. The sickness itself was more…

It's 2020 AD... and I'm sick... again.

Happens once a year, people. There isn't a single year that I live without getting sick at least once. Now, don't worry. I don't have COVID-19. I don't know if I've ever mentioned this, but me and my parents have been social distancing for quite some time now. I've been staying in this house withou…

About my previous post...

I like to write, okay? I'm not usually good at poetry, but I thought I might give it a try. My school curriculum keeps trying to encourage me to write all sorts of ways. Play-Script writing, Poetry writing, Prompt writing... I was experimenting. Originally wrote that poem on my phone a couple night…

The World. (May 27th, 2020)

So yeah... the whole world has gone absolutely crazy. Not just COVID-19, but every natural disaster imaginable. So many things. I am literally shaking as I'm typing this. I nearly had an emotional breakdown just moments ago. This is all too much for me. All the days are playing out the same way for…

Guys, the toilet paper crisis is real!

Okay, so I'm sure everyone and their cousin's cousin knows about the situation with the coronavirus, and how it is spreading. Well, apparently I had heard on the internet that across all of Australia, people are buying large quantities of food, supplies, and toilet paper from stores and storing the…

Anxieties

So, 2020 is here. It's been here for a good four and a half weeks already. And the world has turned into a complete mess. China is being contaminated with a plague, Australia's climate has gone haywire, Africa's plants are being eaten by locusts, America has committed war-crimes with the Middle-Eas…

Once Again, A New Year Awaits Us [Final 2019 Journal]

So, a final journal update for this year. 2019 was a year that I personally have conflicting feelings about. I wouldn't really say it was a good year for me. But it didn't exactly start off as a bad year either... up until the very end. If you've read my previous journals, you can understand why. A…

It's over.

Shadow has passed away today. He was worse than we had ever seen him. By this point, his condition was irreversible. There was nothing more that we could do. One point, we tried getting him to stand up, but he just collapsed on his own feet, lied flat on the floor and wouldn't get back up. He was s…

Biopsy is done. But the news isn't pretty.

My dog has cancer. It is untreatable, it is irremovable, and it is aggressive. It's only going to get worse. We don't know for sure how much time Shadow has left. The cancer is unpredictable, but what is known for sure is the fact that he will only get sicker. The doctor estimates that he has aroun…

My dog came back home today

Shadow came back home from the vet today. Basically, we agreed to let him stay there in order for the biopsy to be done. But to do that, surgery had to be preformed on him. They took a sample from inside his body, likely from the unusual growth between his spleen and liver, and are planning to have…

[My Dog] Something really concerning is happening

So I believe I mentioned before in a previous journal that I have a dog. He is a male golden retriever, and his name is Shadow. We got him when we was a puppy in 2010, and now he is Nine years old. So we've had him for quite some time now, and he's gotten pretty old in dog years. And that's where t…

I've moved

So I don't know if I've clarified this before in previous journals, but I'll tell you anyway. The house that we lived in, we didn't actually own. In fact, it was a rental home, and we were supposed to find a house that we could purchase before our rent ran out. We couldn't find a house, so we overs…

Has anyone else on Weasyl noticed some thing strange?

Has anyone noticed this weird trend on this site that usually involves the plagiarism of someone else's work? What usually happens is, users on this site will upload someone else's art-work from a different artsite, but underneath the image will have link to some movie-watching website, usually to…

I've Hit The Big One Eight

I'm officially Eighteen years old. My birthday was decent. I got to try a new kind of cake that I've never tried before. It's called "red velvet" cake. It's actually quite good. The cake itself is soft spongecake, and it's quite creamy too. It sort of reminds me of cheesecake. I didn't get any pres…

Turning Eighteen Really Soon

In less than three days (Fifteenth of October) I will be turning Eighteen years old. I don't expect that day to be extremely exciting, as it will probably be just like any other ordinary day. Growing up is a part of life. Being afraid of that is useless. I should be grateful to have the privilege o…

It's October once again.

So, if one were to look at my previous journals, they would find that my birthday is on the Fifteenth of October. Except this year, I'm turning Eighteen. That's right, the big One Eight, as some would probably say. Yeah, my childhood is quite close to being over. Which is... I honestly don't know h…

I'm feeling down... [Warning: This is kind of ranty]

So it's happening again. My mood has changed, and it's affecting my health, and my ability to think clearly without having an anxiety attack. I'm not getting enough sleep. In fact, as I type this, I should be sleeping. It's almost 5:00 AM. I always wake up very late in the morning, expected to imme…

I keep taking naps during the afternoon and not at night...

Recently my sleeping schedule has become imbalanced, and I don't know why. I'm in my room right now, and I just had one of those naps. I went to sleep at around 6:00 PM, and then woke sometime at around 9:00 PM. It is already 10:00 now, as I am typing this. I don't know why my sleeping schedule kee…

My immune system really doesn't like me.

I just got sick AGAIN. I just recovered from a cold last month, and now I've come down with another sickness. Frick. So I have bedridden myself for the past two days. In the mornings, I woke up with intense fevers. My eyelids felt as though they were burning, and I was so hesitant to get out of bed…

I've recovered. (Sickness Update)

So, in my last journal, I've confirmed that I was sick. Yesterday, my sickness had fully gone away. Now it is completely gone. I'm no longer coughing, sneezing, or having runny noses or hearing problems. My cold has passed. Unfortunately, my Mother has gotten sick. Like I said, when one person in t…

Getting Sick Again

Yes, the title says it. I'm a little bit sick. The symptoms are not too bad, but it's a little annoying. It started around two days ago, and I started getting the symptoms that one would normally get from a cold. Except they were very mild. So mild in fact that I didn't even think I was actually si…

Long time without actvity

Ranting Journal Entry: I don't really have a reason to post any journals. Aside from maybe letting the internet know that I'm still alive. It's been months.

Scratch what I said before, I've got good news

Remember when I told you about the computer that I had that broke? Well, my parents managed to find someone who could repair it. Basically all that happened was that the power supply got fried, and simply needed a new one put into it. Or at least that's what I think happened. Anyways, the point is.…

Okay, kind of bad news. But hey it isn't the worst. Recently our stuff from the U.S. finally arrived to us in Australia. That includes the desktop that I've been using for about 3 years... up until now. My computer just broke. An attempt was made to try and plug my desktop into the wall of our hous…

I literally have not posted a single journal in over a month in a half. Strange... I guess I was too distracted. Anyways, yeah. I'm still here.

Finally made it here [Moving Update]

So if you have read my previous journal entries before, I'm gonna say it now. I've made it. I have officially moved to Sydney, Australia. But for those who have only just started reading, let me explain. I am American, and prior to moving I had lived in the Pacific Northwest of the US. In fact it h…

Moving abroad in a few days

So in my previous journal, I mentioned that I was going to be moving to Australia. Well, that day is happening real soon. As of now as I type this, it is Thursday the 9th of August. My family and I will be moving next Tuesday on the 14th. However, on Saturday my dog is first going to be transported…

Summer is pretty much here... also, I'm moving to Australia

Yeah, nothing much to say about that. I mean, I'll have all the time I need when it comes to art and stuff, if only I wouldn't get so easily distracted. That being said, I think it's safe to say that I am actually very terrible when it comes to keeping track of my social media accounts... Yeah, as…

Sick again? Are you kidding me?

So back in March, I had posted a journal about getting a sore throat. Then not long after that, my nose got extremely stuffy. Well, this morning my throat started getting sore. Now I'm starting to get the leaky stuffy symptoms. And I know that there is nothing I can do to stop it, and all I can do…

I'm so angry at myself... or was, but I know why.

I can't live up to my own expectations. Every time I promise to finish something, I take over 10 days to finish it.

Title says it. I'm still here with not a whole lot of important stuff to update. I feel like I'm starting to interact with a few more users here on this site, which is good.

In my last journal entry, I mentioned that I was sick. And now a few days have passed and I feel like I'm getting better.

Don't worry, nothing bad happened to me and I didn't get hurt or anything. It's just that me and my mom were talki…

Welp, I'm having artist block again, and I am lonely as heck.

The title says it. Artist block has kicked me in the ass once again.
