*Appears from the bushes in a daze* o.o

Permanent Linkby Scaylid00d on Mon May 18, 2015 2:46 pm

Hi everyone! I find myself stunned that it's almost halfway through this year already. Hardly know where to start, but if you're interested in a little slice-of-life from me, as always, you're welcome to read on :3 Because dammit, even when I'm gone, I still miss you guys TwT

The new job I got into last Christmas has had me at the end of my tether more times than I could count. I've been working as a sales guy at a tech retail store. The hours are horrible, and we're perpetually understaffed, working 9 hour days for 10 days straight, often more. Weekends are meaningless since we work on a predetermined schedule, but at least the pay's decent for now. Having to put up with occasional, yet lengthy unpaid overtime, however, is never much fun either.

Being an introvert at heart, dealing with people for such extended periods of time ended up draining me of any energy, emotional or otherwise. It's especially no fun dealing with unruly customers who can't think past themselves, getting angry at you for not being able to make the specific thing they want, up and magically appear for them, be it a product or solution. I've been literally yelled at at least twice already, and it always leaves me messed up for the rest of that day. Regrettably, these types of people show up much more regularly than I'd have expected. It got to the point where I not only lost any will to try and be creative, but I even stopped playing games and stuff for a good while. Just watching movies or mindless YouTube videos after work, in aimless attempts to bring myself down from the day's stresses, until it was time to go to bed to do it all over again. Unless my insomnia decides to act up, then trying to sleep's another battle all on its own.
I pretty much lost a really close friend in the beginning of this year too, which hit me especially hard, but that's a whole other story as well.

But like times past, once again I find myself artistically reinvigorated, and I'm gonna be trying to make the best of it. It's a pattern I seem to fall in and out of, motivation coming an going :\ But I'm working on this, among other things, just re-learning what it's like to have proper fun with things again. The pic I uploaded today was worked on little by little over the course of the last 6 months, most of it being finished in the last week. It's helped me remember just how much fun it is to draw, and I aim to hang on to that feeling for much longer this time. Blarg, I mean, I have like literally over a dozen personal and other projects still left half-finished or still under construction ;w;U The mood's slowly finding me again though, and by golly, I'll get 'em done yet.

Additionally, in a startling turn of fortunate coincidence, I'll be starting a new job soon, with better pay and way better hours, which I'm kinda excited about o3o; So it's too early to say whether or not I'll be reopening commissions yet, but I really want to <3 Vore is still so fucking awesome. Yes, I know it's not really like me to use language like that, but fuck yeah, I'm excited! >w< \m/ Hooray for vore, bondage, tentacles, yaoi, yuri and all things sexy! ~<3

That's all from me, for now =D Peace out until next time, and stay deliciously scrumptious out there! ;P You never know what Pred might thank you for it later in your day...

Well I am glad to see you are still here! life can be pretty brutal sometimes, but all we can do is just move forward! I love your style, and appreciate the way you draw your male characters as much as your female ones. I hope things get a little easier for you!

Here's to new beginnings! Some time back I worked as a resident tech at a big office supply chain... Decidedly not something I'd want to do again, but I wouldn't have learned as much otherwise ha. Hope the new job goes well!

It was rough for a while, but at least manageable. Moving on to, hopefully, better things soon, so keeping optimistic C:

Blarg, thanks ;3 While some of them are, I wouldn't say most of them are stupid, more like just plain oblivious, and without any sense of empathy. It must be said however, you do get customers who are a real treat to help, simply just from being polite. Just wish there were more of the latter than the former xP

:D Always a treat to share my little musings~ <3 Thanks though, keeping my fingers crossed.

Indeed, when you're going through hell, best thing to do is just keep going, after all C: And thanks a bunch, luckily it's looking up sho nuff <3

Yippee! Thanks a lot, could even be a fun job from what I've seen. Heh, and I wouldn't say I'm kicking, I don't quite have the energy for it, not for the moment anyway. I'm squirming at the very least though~... >w>

Hey buddy, if you need to, shoot me the emails of these unruly customers and I'll give them a nasty little surprise that will scare them equally or more than they scared you.

Glad to hear again from you. Sorry to hear about that sucky job and so so glad to hear you are moving onto a new one <3 May this one be as good as it seems long term ^^

And mmmm, bondage, tentacles, D/s, envelopment, wriggling... wait... *cough* Yes, hope to see more from you soon <3
"Mmmm," Purple eyes stare enviously at a young woman's chest. "I might have to borrow that..."

A bit later as whimpers of despair fade, Im'Rhys admires her newest bewb job, "Ooooh, these look so much better on me."
