Hey guys. It's been awhile since I last posted a journal...or anything up here, so I wanted to get this out of the way.
I've come to accept the fact that Chester Bennington's dead. I was shocked, scared, and heartbroken when I found out he committed suicide. I've never told any of you guys this, but a year or two ago one of my next door neighbors(I'm not gonna name names) attempted to kill themselves by overdosing. Me and a few of my family members who were still awake at the time overheard banging and screaming outside and it scared the crap out of us. They've recovered since then.
Life can be a bit unpredictable sometimes.
With that said, I wanted to make this journal entry a positive one. Talk about something more upbeat to make for how long it's been, and to help put the last journal(and the past) behind me.
To start, I'm finally starting to study for my GED. I dropped out of high school after the 11th grade(which was in 2010!) and now, seven years later, I'm taking classes so I can finally finish high school! I'm currently doing Social Studies, but once I'm done I'll be moving on to science, then Language Arts, and finally math(which has always been my worst subject).
I'd also like to announce that last Wednesday, I became a blood donor! The most painful part was when they took a small sample of my blood(from my ring finger) to check if it was okay. After that, I completed a questionnaire and had to lay on a table. The scariest part was actually drawing blood. My mom was there the whole time and before they started the blood drawing, they remind me that it was completely optional and that I didn't have to do it...but I wanted to. As of right now I'm feeling alot better.
I've also been learning how to use Photoshop(thank you Shaw Academy!) and I'm gonna be posting some of those pics here as well!
To top of this journal, I'd like to announce that I'm working on my very own webcomic. It's currently in pre-production but I have a little over 200 strips written. Once I'm confident in my drawing skills, I'll begin drawing the comic.
I'd like to end this journal with a funny quote like I used to in the past. So here it is:
"Hey dinkweed, your mom still got your balls?" Travis Barker, Blink-182.
