Just another life update :3 I've been having a lot of these lately but I've had a lot going on!
For a long time I've been pretty unmotivated and a lot of it has to do with my current environment. My fiance and I have been living in my parents house and we basically just share a room, with all of our stuff in it combined. It gets pretty uncomfortable and things are overflowing everywhere which is driving me INSANE. (I'm a neat freak) Makes it hard for me to be productive or creative at all. Especially when I hardly have enough space on my desk to even draw.
For the past year and a half we've been trying to fix up a house, which didn't work out because we basically just bit off more than we could chew. It basically fell into our hands but we don't have the money to fix it up to be livable. (doesn't help that I never really clicked with it, especially being so far from work) So we decided to give up a few months ago, and tried to get a home loan. That hasn't exactly worked out considering we're both still young and don't have a lot of credit built up. So, yesterday, we applied to these really nice apartments we had looked at online that is super close to where I work. Literally within like two hours, we got approved!! I feel like we got really lucky, getting accepted on our first try. I am SO SOOOOO excited that we will finally have our own place. It's two bedroom so we'll have a whole room just for my art and his gaming stuff. Things will be a lot better and I can start being more creative and possibly start making videos again. Oh, and the apartments are pet friendly, which brings me to my next point!
I mentioned something in my last journal about getting a puppy for Christmas, and we were finally able to pick him up yesterday! He's a shiba inu, which has been my dream dog for a looonnnggg time. (before the memes lol) I remember when I was fairly young I saw one at a pet store and fell in love, had never even heard of the breed before. So I came home and did my research and fell even more in love especially with the culture behind the breed and their unique personalities. I have a cream shiba, AND HE IS THE CUTEST/SWEETEST THING EVER!!! He's very smart and laid back, and we've hardly had any problems potty training him. He cycles through wanting to play, going in his pen willingly and playing by himself, and sleeping. Oh, and his name is Finn btw! Everyone asks me if it's from Adventure Time, and even though I do like AT, it's technically not. It comes from Fenris, the name of Loki's wolf son in norse mythology. I had this name picked out way before I even knew my pup existed because that's what I decided I would name my shiba whenever I finally got one. ^_^ Right now he really resembles a little polar bear.
So I'm going to be fairly busy for the next week packing and training Finn. We move in on the 20th! After I get unpacked and we get settled in, I'm going to able to get so much more done. Especially since I'll live closer to work and won't have to spend so much time driving. I'll have to open up commissions soon because once we get in I'm gonna be broke for a while and we don't have a lot of furniture and things like that. If you want to commission me go ahead and note me and we can talk about a price, I just won't have an actual list up for a little bit.
So, this will basically be like hitting the 'refresh' button on my life. xD I can finally get the ball rolling on everything.
