A lot of things have changed. Abyssal Studios is taking a hiadus, if I'm correct. I can't help but think that I was the only one told that and have been booted from the project. I hope that's not the case. I posted my fear on the message board. No hits yet. I'll go check.
I was right, no hits. I'm watched the sequal to Silent Hill. It's in blu-ray and not even paying attention. The mentioning of blogs, in the movie, has made an urge to blog pop up into existance. It's 1080p and I'm not even watching. I think I could grow to love this type of life. I have the luxuries but don't even take full advantage. A lot of people do that. Have Xbox Live for a whole year and spend more time watching movies instead. I have a great thing at my job. I get to watch movies like crazy. It will help my creativity. I hurts my free time though. I don't just watch movies for fun now either. I'm watching them as home work for my job. So I know what movies to have the customer look into. We pretty much try to sell everything but sometimes I like to give my customers a break and ask what movies they like. Then recommend movies based on that.
I haven't done anything art lately. I plan on changing that. I don't believe I'm completely familiar with my tablet yet. I have yet to do a great piece, line-art, digally yet. I can on paper though. I want to transfer that ability to the computer. I have go move with the times: I tell my customers that don't have blu-ray players this. I plan on painting some lineart tonight. I'll be surprised if that doesn't happen tonight. I will be playing Xbox Live today though. I really need my own place. Somewhere I can buy internet for Xbox Live. My parents have limited me to an hour of Xbox Live only. I might try to make it 2 hours, and I might not.
I said a lot has changed. I wasn't lying. So Abyssal Studios closing for the moment. Then me getting work. Work. Let get back to that one. So having a job is going better than I expected. I was out of work for such a long time. I figured I would stumble back into it. I landed well and it's been going quite smoothly. The only problem I have now is deciding what to buy with my money. I want tattoos since I can't get the piercings I want. I still want my tongue pierced though. Tattoos though; I want them and getting them. I don't know when though. The main reason is I don't know where I want to go. I could go to really good artists and pay a lot. Or go to some lower level artists and pay not too much. Tattoos are forever, so I want to make sure the art is worth it this time. I also need a new TV. At the same time though, this could wait until I get my own place. A place with a key that only I have. I could use a new coffee maker. I could add to my collection of movies. I could get a Ps3. I could update my wardrobe. So many options. That's the only thing about having money to spend now. I'll probably settle with a tongue piercing.
I still have to raise $2,000 for college. I'm eligable for a loan of $5.500 though. Not sure if that can be used toward my debt or not. I should be in college soon. If I'm lucky, I'll run into a 2nd job and work during the day. I work my current job nights & weekends. I'm a closer often. Work is fun though. I'm going to visit tommorrow. I have to drop some movies off and ask if I can come in and alphabetize the comedy and horror section. Hopefully Tina says yes. I'd even do it for free. I'd prefer the money though.
It looks like the new girl went back to Silent Hill. I'm not sure though. I'm gonna' start paying attention to it now.

I should be asleep. I'm sitting at my laptop with a cup of coffee and a rolled cigarette. I should quit. I should probably work on the 2 projects I have going. I'm at my parents' house though so that's highly unlikely. I'm admiring the cigarette I rolled. It's not loose. It's not too tight either. I'll play some Yu-Gi-Oh while I drink coffee and smoke. My "girlfriend'" might call me...

Work is going fine. I like it there. It's just an entire shift of pure fun. The co-workers are fun, the customers are fun. Work is just fun. I'm scared for college though. I don't have enough for tuitition. I don't know how I'm going to cover that gap I have, money wise. I still haven't talked to my academic advisor though. He should have some answers for my questions though. That's going on tomorrow morning.
I plan to watch a movie with my family. At work, we get pre-streets. Which are movies that haven't hit the shelves yet. We get to watch them so we will know who to recommend the movies to. Let me correct myself. We get to watch them so we are able to talk to customers about them. I, on the other hand, am getting my family to tell me what movies they like to watch and whether they liked the movie or not. That way, I know which customers to recommend the movie to.
Update: Just finished The Life of Pi. It was kay. I see why it got nominated for awards, but I also see why a lot of people didn't like it. Again, it was kay. Anyway, speaking of Abyssal Studios, I got a lot of good feedback for the treasure chests I drew. I just told another team member to upload his ideas, for the story line, to the forums. That way, he can get some positive and negative feedback and make it better. I believe the team needs to see stuff like that and engage in those kinda activities. It gives them the sense that the project is still progressing. I'm spending the night by my parents'. Time to enjoy the internet.

I start work tomorrow. I'm excited. It's a chance to get a routine and get some money. I'm in dire need of the 2nd one. Today is kinda weird. I had breakfast, twice, and had some coffee. I still feel hungry though. That's the weird part. Nothing else! ^_^ Anyway, I'm at the library right now. I don't plan to stay long. Just came to show the team at Abyssal Studios what I've done. I re-did the treasure chests. They all look like they're from the same game now. I'll probably show Bram and then leave soon. I won't have time to watch Bleach today. On 2nd though, I could stay longer just for that.
Bram isn't on. Usually would be a problem if I had planned on showing drawings off. I made an adjustment. I uploaded it to the Developers Forum at Abyssal Studios. This way, everyone who gets on the forum will be able to see it. I asked for questions and suggestions. Hopefully I get some.
Just looking forward to tomorrow and the months to come. Well weeks, should I say. I will, hopefully, get a good amount of hours and really be able to stack some paper. Here comes: Piercings, Tattoos, Electronic Upgrades and My Tuitition Deposit! I'll be leaving soon, also.

So, I've got a job now. I went to get a long sleeve shirt to cover my tattoos when I wear the Polo uniform. Being that today is about business, I'm going to stick with it. I haven't been able to work on the treasure chests, too much, so far yet. I'll have all night to work on that. I'm also applying to other places; in the hopes of having a 2nd job. I could really use the money and stability in my life right now. Also, with more income it will be easier to get the things I'm in need of:
$150 - School Tuitition Deposit
$200+ - New Laptop
$100+ - Tattoos
So if I can manage to get a 2nd job, I'll be able to get all of those things faster. I'm also looking to save up for a car and my own place. That's furthur down the road though. These are the things I need next to immediately.
I've finally reached a point where I can start on Frank B's project. We have a plan and all my questions have been answered. I know what to do, I'm scared though. I don't know if I'll be able to do it. I've only sprited for fun. Never sprited seriously or created a sprite from scratch (sratching). So I'm afraid I won't do a good job. It's bad enough he's been waiting around for so long. I have to get that started tonight.
Besides Frank's project, I am, obiously, working on a project with Abyssal Studios. It's an RPG, which I believe I've said in previous entries. Right now the task is treasure chest. The only challenge is that there will be treasure chests for 5 different rarities.
I've got a set of treasure chests set up so far. I don't like them though. They're good, it just they don't look like they all belong to the same game. I'm going to make all the chests be variations of 1 of the chests I made. I believe it was the Rare chest. It looks nice to me. I can bump it from Rare to Common or Uncommon. Then I'll just make all the chests look similar but have variations that would make them easily able to tell apart. I'm in for another night of work!

I'm going to try this oout. I'm at home and have no internet. Drag yeah? So I'll write my blog down and rig to the current time. So it's still blogging. To the day so far.
I made a mistake. I knocked my powercord loose with like 0% battery life (I need a new laptop), my Pc shuts off. Problem. I had just finished a sketch & painting of the Rare chest for the RPG I'm working on at Abyssal Studios. Paint Tool SAI doesn't have a recovery mode. I didn't save once. Between drawing and smoking a cigarette, it slipped my mind. I have to start from scratch. I updated my calendar.
On to business. I'm working directly on Treasure Chests for Abyssal Studios. I'm going to just let the ideas go and determine the rarity afterwords. Worked once so far. I'm liking my sucess with my tablet so far. I want to roll with it. I've had difficulty striking lightning twice. I'm confident. I sketched it out on paper so I wouldn't lose my idea. Its going to work.
Frank B's project will again have to wait. He hasn't given me a release dat for the construction kit. Then again, I haven't asked. I'll do that tomorrow afternoon. My current phone's email app is less than satisfactory. I have a job now so that will change soon.
I've got coffee in my cup and more on the burner. Sleep?! I challenge you!

Had another conference at Abyssal Studios today. It was pretty short and only 4 of us showed up. That's because it was pushed ahead an hour. So the other members weren't able to make it. It's called being on Skype when you're at your computer. You never know when things like that can happen. Oh well. I tried my best to update them on what was covered in the conference. Nathaniel and Kyle were the 2 members I talked to. I didn't get to talk to Ramin. He'll have to find out some other day.
I'm happy to be starting my new job at BlockBuster. It's going to be awesome. Time will fly by! I'll be working then, when that's done, I'll be working on art for games. I'll have like no down time. Speaking of Abyssal Studios, I was given some direction of what to do next:
I'm going to get started on that maybe tonight. If not, I'll work on it tomorrow. Yeah, I'm going to get started on it tomorrow. These Frappuccinos aren't giving the kick that freshly brewed coffee does. I doubt I can stay up passed 11 tonight. With that being said, I'm going to watch Inception and play a bit of Resident Evil 6, since I'm borrowing it. Then pass out, like I did last night drinking!
