So, apparently I haven't made a serious journal in quite a while. It's been just a little over 6 months?

While, unfortunately I am not back on DeviantArt for good, nor even the internet unfortunately, I am here for the moment and I figured now is as good a time as ever to type up a journal entry.

So, Ever since my last journal entry I have been at Job Corps, where I had been getting accustomed to Job Corps at first, then I started training in my trade, which was Office Administration, and now I have finished my trade, but unfortunately am not ready to come back to face the real world. The reason for this is becuase when I come back to face all the responsibilities that I will have to face ahead, I want to be able to have such a huge advantage over these responsibilities that there will be no way I can fail.

When I get out of Job Corps, I will be looking for my own place to live and hopefully will have my business started up to the point where it will be able to support me while continue growing as a business, so that I won't have to look for a job, but if I do still have to look for a job when I leave Job Corps, then I will, but I will also make sure that I will have enough time to put effort into building my business.

Currently, I am in the ACT program at the Job Corps which is basically a full time college program and I will be in it until I am done getting my AS or AA. Unfortunately becuase I am still in Job Corps, there is almost no internet for me to access, and the little amount of internet that I do get to use is only the things that Job Corps chooses not to block.


I have some bad news, unfortunately, which is something that has changed me so dramatically that my entire outlook on life is different now. This last September, my oldest sister unexpectedly passed away. This was a very tragic event for our family. It's not easy for any of us in our family to live the lives we lead. I can't speak for the others for sure, but so far mine has seemed to mostly be a life of tragedy, thankfully with a little comedy here and there, but never enough to distract me from my vulnerability to my emotions as a human being.

Our sister will be missed, and never forgotten as long as we live. There have been many emotions that I have felt since my sister passed away, including regret, sadness, and bitterness. I have even been reminded of how short and fragile life really is. I have seen a glimpse of eternity and have even been reminded that life is far too short, and instead of getting discouraged by these things, they only drive me to work harder and more than ever before. I once said that if you want your dreams to become reality, make them into goals that you will never give up on, becuase while dreams are fragile and may be killed goals can never be destroyed. I have a future planned and the events that have transpired have only made me stronger and more determined than ever before, so much so that I will not let anyone or anything stand in my way.

That being said, when it comes to Deviant Art and the internet, I will likely be back in full swing either this next summer or possibly a year to a year and a half from now, all depending on how much I work, and how much I get done in between now and then. For now, I am off to enjoy my winter break.

EDIT: If you would like to hear more about my time at Job Corps, I have started a vlog that can be viewed at www.youtube.com/xario1

Tagged by the lovely young neelixnoodles

The Rules: 

1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves 
2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer 
3. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal 
4. Not something like "you are tagged if you read this"
5. You have to tag legitimately 10 people
6. No tag-backs

1. Favorite fictional characters? (from books, TV, movies, or games?)
L (Death Note), Willy Wonka, there might also be others, but I can't think of them right now.

2. If there was one skill you could obtain without having to work for it, what would it be, and why?
Every skill is worth working for, because if it were just handed to us, then we wouldn't know as much about it than if we had learned it the hard way nor would we be as talented in using said skill, because we didn't take the time to learn how to use it.

3. Do you have any pets?
I had a pet. Her name was Pumpkin. My little brothers also had two pets, who I also considered mine as well, since they didn't take care of them as much as I have. Their names are Ashes and Shikari.

4. Or siblings?
I have 4 siblings, but only 3 remain.

5. What do you look for in art? (as a viewer)
Effort. Without effort, it is not art. One cannot simply lazily throw paint onto a canvas and truly call it art without at least have given it plenty of thought first or effort in the process, but what I look for even more than effort is something "different" than what other people are doing. Everyone has their own art style, and that is what makes art so great is the fact that it does not all have to be the same! I guess what you could really say I actually look for if you wanted to know if I had some sort of pattern when it comes to watching artists, is potential. When I see someone who has the potential to become someone great, even if everyone else thinks their art is terrible, I give them a chance. So, if you ever are reading this, know that you have potential to become someone great whether you beleive it or not. Maybe you just need to find your passion or skill, or something else, but what you do have already is potential.

6. Who was your first OC?
I don't remember for sure. Maybe Garchomp?

7. What OC are you the most proud of?
I don't know....  I don't spend much time thinking about them, unfortunately. That's probably why I'm not all that great at thinking up stories for them

8. Your favorite piece of your own art?
I don't remember. I haven't looked through my entire collection in a while. I would say my Jamz, but that would likely be becuase they are on shirts, and are one of my first shirt designs.

9. Who inspires you?
Jesus, L, and several Youtubers and artists such as Edd Gould, Thomas Ridgewell, Christopher Bingham, Toby Turner, Wheezywaiter, and several others.

10. Cats or dogs.  Answer carefully.
Cats. I love them, always have, always will.


Sorry, everyone. Especially sorry to neelixnoodles becuase unfortunately I will have to break the rules :U
I have far too many things to do right now, so I don't have time to think up questions right now or tag anyone. I don't mean to be a party pooper, but I gotta be just this once :\

I don't know why, but something seems familiar about you, like I might have been one of your watchers in the past or something, but i can't seem to remember.
