Happy New Year to all my friends and watches! 2016 was a huge roller coaster, but finally its over and we can hopefully begin 2017 on a happier note.
Though before I pass the baton onto 2016, I just want to apologies for how quiet I've been lately, and sadly I don't think that's likely to change anytime soon. Mostly because I'm trying to spend less of my life online, and more experiencing everything the world has to offer me. It hasn't been too hard to be honest but I still dabble on the internet for RP and online friends.
This year was a very tough year for me. So much good and bad stuff was crammed into it, which made it feel very overwhelming and I fell into crippling depression. Added to the fact that most of my support from the government was cut, I was forced into a job that I didn't particularly like and wasn't at all good for my health, but had to do in order to be able to pay rent, bills and anything else with hopes of having some money left over to make some savings. Eventually though I came to the decision that the job was not helping my mental state and after a talk with my boss, they were able to 'terminate' me so I didn't have to quit and lose all my government assistance all together. So how am I going to be able to afford my bills, you ask? Good question! My friend Noixs
is moving back in with me and my partner, but this time around things will be different and there shouldn't be any problems this time around. With Noixs living with me and sharing the cost of rent and bills, I will be finally able to return to my studies and better myself so that I stand a better chance at getting a job that's not anything to do with cleaning.
Oh, and on boxing day, I brought myself a dog. I've wanted a dog for a long time, and carefully did my finances to make sure I could afford to keep him happy and healthy, and everything checked out. I've been much happier since he's been here. He is a 2 and a half year old whippet that needed a new home due to being unable to be shown anymore due to being 2 inches too tall. When I saw his ad, I knew I had to jump on that opportunity. His name is Elrond, full name Kanati Lord of Rivendell (I didn't name him) and he's wonderful. I love him so much. He is a very big bed hog though
Well, that about sums up everything-ish. Hoping you are all well and hopefully I'll get back into arting soon.
