Wow, it's been a while when I last updated my journal entry, including what I've been up to lately. ^^;

So what's been happening with me lately, well I'm still looking for paid work but have recently began a Voluntary Work Placement last Tuesday where I'm currently looking after domestic animals before they're re-homed to new pet owners (the big highlight for me was feeding all the cats :meow:). The building however does reek of animal piss, but I just get on with the job rather than dwell on it. XD While I'm only work a few hours, I'm willing to ask my work colleagues if I can work more hours so then I'm not just dawdling on what other tasks I need to do next. :P

My motivation to draw sketches is still on the low side, almost as if I've not been too productive with my gallery and have been so fixated going through my notifications non-stop and I feel like I've been neglecting what I post. ^^; I shouldn't be so worried if I can't go through them in case they buildup too much. Besides, they're not going anywhere and I've all the time in the world to go through them, so I'm hoping to balance out both submitting content/journals and going through my messages in the process. :) I'm also gradually taking advice from my friend, SamCyberCat to just minimise the use of being on dA nearly everyday so then I have time for myself outside the internet.

As for what games I've been playing, not a whole lot but have been fully engrossed playing my copy of Pokemon Sun that I got last Christmas, I've almost completed the post game and I'm about to start catching the Ultra Beasts sometime soon. ^^ I'm also happy that one of my closest friends, Haruka-Tavares volunteered to do that online trade I mentioned a couple weeks ago to evolve a couple Pokemon that I wanted on my team, I was helped her out to evolve her Pokemon through trading in return; I can't thank her enough for that ^.^

So what I'll be doing next month, not much but me and my friends offline have been debating on whether to head over to Doncaster's Video Game Market again; just like last year's event. We'll see what happens. ^^

So yeah, that's what's happening in my life as of now. :) What have you guys been up to lately?

It's nice to hear news from you! Man, your volontary work seem to be quite entertaining! I also would love to take care of pets in my free time. x) But for now I'll just get into sports, I guess.

Ah yes I've heard Haruka has been helping you out for Pokemon. That's nice! =D

Now that makes me think I also didn't post a journal for ages... Oops!

Yup, and thanks! :)

It does, it may not be the most pleasant job I've done, but its still something at the end of the day. X) Aww, I'm sure you would. ^^

Yeah, she has been a big help! :D

And cool, I'll keep an eye out for your latest journal sometime soon. ^.^

Yup, it's not the most pleasant job I've done but it's a good source of experience. ^^ And thanks a lot! :)

Yeah, me and my friends haven't decided on going just yet. But here's a link to the event if you decide to head up there though. ;)

Sound's really good of you to be helping out with the animals :) Good luck for finding paid work otherwise!

I know what you mean, I've been lacking the motivation to sketch enough as well lately. Having a lot of things to do for university as well as my own personal projects doesn't help though (I mostly end up sketching in class lol). But otherwise yes as you say dA's good, but it's also good to have time for oneself outside of the internet too :)

Indeed! :D It's not the most pleasant job I've done like, just this week I had to dispose of a couple cat droppings in the pens. XP But had to be done unfortunately. XD Thanks, I hope so too. ;v;

Aw deary me, that is most unfortunate. But good to know you've found some time sketching while at Uni. :)

And yeah, more time for yourself is always a good thing. :nod:

I'm glad that things are going well for you at the start of the new year. Volunteering with animals sounds like such a great thing to do! :3

Thanks a lot!~ :)

It is, I know I'm not getting paid for working there, but it's a good source of experience! :3
