Hey everyone. :aww: First and foremost, I want to wish everyone a slightly belated Happy Thanksgiving, in America and in Canada, as their Thanksgiving is in October. For those of you who celebrate it, I hope you and all your loved ones have thought about and realized what you are thankful for. For me, I'm thankful for my family, my health, and the ability to be able to take care of myself. I'm thankful for living in a free country and being able to help those if it is in my power. That's what Thanksgiving is for me. :thanks: I hope you all are thankful too.

It has certainly been a nerve-racking couple of months for me since I last updated my journal. Sadly, my father passed away in New York just a day or so before my birthday. It was a complete shock, and my family and I are still struggling to cope with it. My father has had trouble with his diabetes and high-blood pressure for as long as I can remember and it just caught up to him, despite the fact he was doing his best to take care of himself. I just hope and pray that his death wasn't painful and he made his peace with God. Admittedly, my father wouldn't have exactly won any Father Of The Year award, but I know he did his best with what he had and despite the rough life he had growing up. He did whatever he could to make sure my mother, brothers, and I had enough to eat and clothes to wear, even after he and my mom separated. I will miss his dry humor, wit, and cleverness, even though he never finished high school. He grew up in poverty, but I'm glad to know he did his best to make sure his family was provided for. To all of you, if your dad is still around, make sure you take the time to say "I love you", every once in a while, and not just that, but.."thank you". I'm sure my father appreciated it very much when my brothers and I thank him for something. Those two words really brightens a day. :thanks:

Other than that, I'm still struggling a bit with trying to find a job, but I'm still holding on to hope. Reading is a very small town, and with small towns, there aren't a lot of options for good jobs. Not only that, but as I'm not driving, it's difficult for me to apply for and accept some jobs that are OUT of town. Growing up in New York, I never had to learn to drive, but's a totally different story and different world. *sigh* But I'm still hanging on in there. That's about all I can do. At any rate, thank you all for the comments and wonderful feedback on Legacy Of The Gods so far. As I'm sure I said before, there aren't a lot of comments, but I'm so very grateful for the few I've gotten so far. Those comments made the difference of me leaving or staying here. :aww: Thank you, those of you who read and commented. No words can explain what that meant to me. :huggle: That's about it with me. I hope everyone has a wonderful and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's. Many blessings to you all and please keep visiting. :wave:

Happy Birthday, Hoshino-chan!  Hope you're having a fun day.  Things have been pretty crazy with 2 classes (Social Science and Introduction to Dance) and they're going well.  Finals are coming up soon: a group research presentation this Monday in the late afternoon with a power point.

I've been doing my best to draw more diverse OCs, and finally managed to learn how to draw perspective by studying the shapes so it's not so overwhelming and intimidating! :w00t:  Also have begun to write on 3 original Gargoyles stories, and this is a really interesting journey since I get a chance to build up on everything. =)

Thank you so much! :love: I wish you all the best of luck with your finals, I know you can do it. ;) I'm all for diverse characters. Everyone comes in different hair, skin, and eye colors, so it's cool to reflect that. :thanks: Oh, I remember the Gargoyles, I watched it every afternoon when I was a kid in school! :D Good luck with your stories. :huggle:
