Where you are, I mean. xD It doesn't snow in So. Cal, you sillies. Though, we are going through a cold spell, and HILARIOuSLY enough, the city's actually issued a cold weather alert, which I find to be endlessly amusing. They say to protect our heads and extremities, and even advise us to check on our neighbors. Holy crow, it's 50 degrees out, I'd better check to see if my neighbors are dying yet. xDD I just find the Cali reaction to a little frost to be a big overblown thing, when most people have REAL winters to figure out. xD Everyone thinks we're wimps, dangit.
Oh, pardon me. This is just one of those misc. journals, I suppose. Life is kinda hectic lately, but at the same time, it's not? I feel like corporate America is pushing the holiday craze a little too early these days... I, and everyone I know, is already done with Christmas shopping, and decorating, so we have the whole remainder of the month to be stuck in Christmas mode. I'm not even a Christian, but I guess the tradition IS at least a LITTLE fun. >3<;
I've been getting a lot of shaming and teasing lately, because I've been visiting my foster family more often. :/ See, since May, I've lost a colossal amount of weight, and their way of showing they care involves a dang intervention every time I show up to anything. Although I've gotten used to hearing how malnourished and "ugly" I look, I don't think I'll ever become desensitized to other people trying to push my weight into the center stage of my freaking life. It's gotten to the humiliating point as to where they squeeze my shoulders, and feel up my ribs when they freaking greet me, leaving me feeling like some dang farm animal, or something. I really wish I could just be ME, instead of the favorite watercooler topic among the Latinos. I don't think that they realize that constantly highlighting my size only further perpetuates my eating problems.
I try not to think about it too much, because I'm still young, and I have the rest of my life to worry about my health when I'm old and actually need to. I'm just in this weird position where I'm still afraid to gain weight, but now, I'm afraid to lose it, too. God bless America, where people actually HAVE problems as petty as mine. xDD It's kinda a thrill when I really think about what a diva I can afford to be. Go me!
Oh shit, I almost forgot the main reason I was supposed to be writing this journal. I'm sure a lot of you are silently miffed that I've been lagging on 'Mon Amie', so I would just like to announce that it will resume in January. I managed to scrape together the funds for a new tablet, but until it arrives, I'd like to keep my focus on (R)Evolve's chapter one. Because.... even if I update it twice a day for two months straight... Chapter one is... long. xD
But not only that. If any of you recall, 'Mon Amie' is a sister comic to (R)Evolve. There's a certain spoiler that's coming up in both of them, and I want it to be revealed in (R)Evolve BEFORE it is introduced in her little sister. That involves a little bit of catch up, so while everyone is being all Christmas-y, I'm going to do my best to update daily. That's not a promise, though, because I know for a fact that there will be days that I'm booked with other things.
That being said, I'm fairly optimistic. I DID decide to take up on his offer, and have him do my page layouts. I sorta asked him to do it "forever", but I kinda suspect that he thought I was joking. xDD Either way, he'll definitely help me out, by taking the tedium of drafting off my plate, so I can focus on what I actually enjoy about my comic work - Writing, writing, and more writing! My script's already, like, four pages long, and I project that at this rate, the entire chapter will be around 60 IF I'm efficient about it. xD But we all know that I'm not. xDD Anyway, if you're only here for 'Mon Amie', feel free to tune out for the remainder of the month. I have big plans for it and all, but all in due time.
That's about it, I think. Have a happy holiday season, and please stay warm. While ya'll are out sleighin', I'll be on the beach, surfin', so cheers to that!
