Once again it's been too long since my last update, ne? Ah well~ What can you do when you stay busy all month long?
The good news is that things have gotten better between Miss Sherry and myself. It took her a while to get past loosing Spooky, but we're much better now for it. Though it still isn't the same not having her around.
July pretty much came and went. I got a spare week off work for the 4th, but I pretty much did nothing but housesit. By August though work had slowed down for Miss Sherry and her husband. Enough for them both to come home and let me go back home for the month. Hopefully by next month work will have picked up and I'll be making more money again.
In that time I had a couple more projects lined up. My voice work is slowly growing which does give me a sense of pride knowing people like me enough to use me in their projects. ^_^
Now recently I've noticed people posting entries based on their stories of first joining DA since this month marks their birthday and all. Guess it's about time I shared my story as well~11 years ago...
I was just 16 years old when I first discovered this place through my old friend
who had set up her own DA page here. Instantly, I was hooked with this place as it seemed like the one place where I'd actually get some response to my writings. So I joined and began posting whatever stories and poetry I'd write just to get people to reply and comment.
Over time, gradual changes began to take place. I became more aware of my writing style and began incorporating other people's styles of writing into my own, allowing me to grow in my writing skills through reading other's works and rping with friends.
I made many friends over the years here. Some who I still talk to from time to time. Some who have gone inactive, left, or simply forgot about me and move on. And even some I met in other places who so happened to have DA pages of their own.
I've also gone through my fair share of relationships that I've found through here. Even though they ended in some form or another they still brought something new to the table for me to understand when it comes to love. I've learned maintaining an online relationship is difficult, but usually it can be worth it if you find that one person to make it worth the effort.
Many of you have probably noticed that over the years I've not posted nearly as much as I did when I was younger. I attribute that to getting older and getting interested in other things. Spending time rping more elsewhere, and eventually I got my first job and began making commissions using DA points which I still do to this day~
If I had any regrets about DA, its that I wish I could post here more often than just updating my journal and getting commissions. But these days I lack the time to write personally and really, I feel like people won't be interested in what I post here anymore. That goes for rping in general I've come to realize.
Believe me, I do enjoy rping and still do. Just not nearly as much as I used to when I was younger. I had to sadly step down from Digital Dreams after having a talk with my friend Losty. I lost the heart to post there anymore and my interest in Digimon has faltered a bit. I've also been keeping more occupied with my jobs, my voiceover projects, and so I just don't have the spare time to devote to Digital Dreams anymore.
It doesn't mean I'm not friends with Losty and Vn, far from it. We'll always be best friends, and I have big plans for our charashie-kins.deviantart.com/jour…
for my own personal headcannon/AU I've been working on.
Still, it got me to wondering about something and that something is what I made into a new poll as of recently so honest opinions would be nice on the subject at hand.
All in all, I do enjoy being here and I don't have any plans on shutting this down anytime soon. I wanna stay here and keep on making friends here like I have with all these lovely people here:
So thanks for all the year of being here on Deviantart. Here's to many more wonderful years here~ ^_^
