What's going on

What's going on with my LJ friends these days? No one is updating anymore. Not even me, I guess. Yesterday I had to go out to my parents house to help my dad install one of those new antennas, since he has a satellite and doesn't get local stations. So I...

The search has

The search has begun. I went out on Monday and handed my resume to a few secretaries who probably just threw it away. But that's okay. I did talk to the owner of one smaller company, but that was in Washington. The more I think about it, the more I really...

Well it's time

Well, it's time to start looking for a full time job again, I think. I hate doing it. I hate giving up. But I think I just started at a bad time to start. Job boards online are a friggin' joke anymore. People just post a job and never close it, never reply...

Holy crap. It

Holy crap. It sure is snowing hard. None of it is sticking, but it's still nice to look out my window and see snow.Yay Winter!

I finished my

I finished my cartoon. I sent it away to the guy who needed to see it. He was... well... unimpressed, I guess. I mean, I thought it was pretty average myself, but I also thought that it was absolutely the best cartoon he could have bought with the money he...

My third and final update for the day, I promise.

My cartoon is finished! Well, sort of. I need music and sound effects, but it should be finished-finished by tomorrow. All the animation is done. It clocks in at just over 3 minutes. I'm pleased with certain parts of it, but overall, I think it's a very...

Someone at Best Buy isn't a fuckhole.

Finally! Justice has almost been served! After a battle with Best Buy lasting more than a year, I finally get a call from someone who wants to help me out. A guy named Brad McCoy called me today regarding my latest Best Buy complaints, asking me to send...

Riot Act

So, Pearl Jam's new album, Riot Act, is freaking awesome. After being really let down by Binaural, it's good to see them back on track with a kick ass, yet mellow entry. It reminds me a lot of No Code, where no song really sounds like typical Pearl Jam,...

Holy debt relief, Batman!

I'd heard a rumor that if I called in and tried to cancel my GM card that they would give me all sorts of deals to make me keep it. I only half-believed the rumors until I gave it a shot today. I told them I wanted to cancel and within 5 minutes I'd...

Me and Polk

Me and Polk went out for Chinese food and beers on Friday. It was good times. It was also nice to resurrect our Friday night outting after a couple weeks of it being interrupted with different stuff. Saturday I had to work. That was lame. Brian Kelly was...

The guy paying

The guy paying me for the cartoon has gotten kind of anxious for it or something, I think. He's kind of been bugging me for a sneak peek, so last night I sent him what I had done and talked to him about it. He didn't seem overly enthusiastic about mine,...

Lately it's been

Lately it's been like 5 degrees here in central Illinois. I usually go jogging at night, but it's gotten too cold. I switched to mornings, but even that got too cold for me. So, I broke down and bought an elliptical machine today. I'm broke as shit, but I...

Thinspiration

So, I've lost close to 40 pounds now. I've noticed a difference in the way I look and others have said they notice one too. But it has never been so apparent as when Jaimee got back her last roll of film. I guess it had been in her camera for a while, so...

My apartment is

My apartment is very cold. The hallway leading into my apartment is very warm. How do I harness the warmth of the hall and use it for my own benefit?

It was a

It was a weird night last night. Me and Mullens went to Sully's for some hot wings, and while getting ready to leave, the waitress spilled all sorts of beer on me. Tons of it. I thought that mistake would have gotten us free food, but all it got me was 4...

This morning I

This morning I woke up bright and early (for me) to go jogging. I've decided that when I don't work at the gallery, I want to jog 2 miles, twice a day. I've done that for 3 or 4 days now. This morning I was getting ready when I realized my calves hurt like...

So I guess

So, I guess it's been a while since I've posted. The cartoon job is going well. It's all planned out, characters are designed, and I actually start animating today. The guy I'm working with is a really nice guy, who can hopefully give me a lot of work...

Livejournal - Year 2

Yep. Today is my 2nd LJ anniversary. What an exciting time, eh? So, let's see. Where was I a year ago compared to where I am now... well... about the same I guess. Compared to last year, this year has been really, really uneventful. The best thing to...

I got the

I got the job. The cartoon job. Making a cartoon. This is like the 2nd time in my career I've been paid to make a cartoon, so I'm pumped about it. And it's not porn. And it will be fun to work on. I'm back to being an animator after a short time off. I'm...
