Hi. Um... Well... It's been almost been a year since my last Journal. And I'm very very sorry about that. But I've had a lot of things going on, and I mean a lot.
My mother lost her job, got another one, had to quit it because it was affecting her health, then didn't get another one for 3 months. Sadly, the job still isn't enough to cover all our expenses so our grandparents are helping us out. But it's been hard for her, so I'm still doing all that I can to help her. And she doesn't really like the job (it doesn't have any benefits or good pay) so she still has to look for another job.
I had to decide if I would be staying in my high school or if I would go to a career center for the last two years of high school. It was a really hard choice and it took months on end debating with myself on if I should go or not. In the end though I decided to go, so next year I'll be taking two hour classes mainly focused on Graphic Design (which is the career I decided to go for). The rest of my day will be composed of normal high school classes and thankfully I'm not the only one out of my friends to decide to go, so I won't be all alone there.
And.... there's also something else but it's kinda embarrassing for me to talk about. But believe if I could... I would be writing paragraphs on the subject.
Yeah.... that's pretty much it. It's been a hard year for me to be honest (not all of it has been hard but.... you know :/ ), but I'm hoping that with the career center I'm going to that my artwork will get better. And I'll try to update more on here once I can. I'm going to be spending the summer practicing and working on my art technique as well as art commissions from friends so I'll be busy for awhile. Wish me luck.
