During the past two weeks, I was in Los Angeles. And I made the decision of moving there. So I'm starting to make some preparations for a move across the country. My local friend and family think I'm psychotic for wanting to move across the country... I don't get it. I'm surrounded by people who thinks I'm leaving the country. It's a five hour flight away. I just don't get it. I'm not going to miss the family who's never home, I'm not going to miss the home I loath. Word of advice, don't let anything hold you back from fulfilling a dream. I lived my life doing nothing, and the dream I have right now is to move to Los Angeles, start school again and get a degree in animation and spend time with the friends who doesn't think I'm crazy before they go on to joining the military or leaving the country and such. In a sense I am moving there more for friends than anything else, so yes, maybe I'm an ass hole for it. But I'm not happy where I'm currently at. So where is the fairness in that?
I also went to Anime Expo while I was in Los Angeles, for twenty minutes... something about the con was so --- ugh --- It was a mess. I showed up and left, I had fun last year this year was such a mess. I talked to a lot of randoms at the hotel I was staying at, and a good number of them were also having a pretty bad time. I thought it was unfortunate. There was a lot of behind the scenes problems with AX this year, it clearly shows. It's unfortunate, there was so much stress among my people, to the point that I didn't get to sleep in my hotel room one night, I slept outside in the pool. I thought that was sad, and the people I was sharing the room with were ass holes. sigh
of course what's done is done. let it go. I still had fun on my trip even if it wasn't at the convention it self.
I'm probably not going to AX next year after the four days of hell. I had fun, but lack of sleep and a pretty bad cold took it's toll. I did bring two friends back to Florida, and I had the most awesome week after a cluster of chaos I had in the longest time. I forgot how that was like. I regret nothing.
For the sake of art, I will draw again soon. I've been saying that a lot, haven't I? lol. I try not to procrastinate. but that will change as soon as I recover from this cold. I want to improve and open commission to be closer to moving to Los Angeles.
