I say Back-"ish" only because I may still have long periods of time without activity on here, and as much as I want to remedy that, it is far from my control.
So far my first week in California has had a few ups, but also quite a few downs as well, both leaving me fairly exhausted at the end of each day. Even the first few days were pretty rough in itself.
Without going too far into detail, one of my best friend's mother passed away from cancer just as I had left; I felt horrible for not being there to help him get through his hard time. Then just a few days after my fathers house caught fire, which resulted in it almost burning down completely (don't worry I am not staying with my father, I was just really worried about his saftey is all). Meanwhile it has been difficult to learn my way around the area via train and bus (I get lost often...
) along with some concerns regarding my current living situation as well...
That's only around half of it, I won't go into detail about my bank situation
... but I will say that this experience hasn't been all bad. I've actually had a lot of fun here viewing some sights, and being able to meet a large amount of friendly people (luckly I haven't encountered anyone bitter so far).
Thankfully everything has started to settle down, so I can finally get to all the art i've owed!
I'm immensely grateful for those who are waiting on commissions for being so patient with me; and thank you to everyone else in general for sticking around even if I haven't made anything new in quite awhile.
I hope you all have been well in my absence.
