Was going to post this last night... But because I was using my phone I went off the page to get a link and when I went back to it the page refreshed itself and what took me an hour to do was gone. ._. But now I'm doing this on my hunk of a junk laptop so let's try again. Oh yeah I got the flu so that sucks, my head hurts.

It's been eight months since my last journal entry so I figured I'd make a new one, I've been busy with music and life really. I know music is my life but I still like to split them up as music is my much needed escapism. Firstly I've finished my Level 2 Music course and for a while I didn't know what to do after it. I eventually picked art and graphic design and I aced the interview but I still wasn't sure that I wanted to be doing this for a year, I decided recently-ish that I just hate drawing and it's why I'm never motivated to practice, I know I could be a great artist but I just don't want to put the effort into it so it really isn't for me. Luckily I was able to get an audition for Level 3 Music as I want to be on stage performing, not struggling to drag a pencil across paper to make something that will barely get me a passing grade. I smashed the Theory and Performance tests no problem so Level 3 Music here I come.

So besides college and still relating to music, I've finally acquired something to make quality music with and I've been having a lot of fun making songs for myself and other people. I was given an idea a long time ago where I could do commissions for people. For example they could ask me "could you make a rock song as a theme for one of my characters?" and then I'll be like "Yea" then I'll get to work, I'd need to think of prices but I'm not that super confident in my musical abilities yet so for now it's just an idea that I may or may not do. If you want to hear my work you can check here: soundcloud.com/ryans251 The last three songs I've made on the music software I'm currently using. You can tell they're a big improvement over my past stuff on there.

Moving onto life stuff now, uh... There's been ups and downs. You know when you get into a shit situation and you finally get used to it, then it gets even worse and you have to get used to that? Yeah just repeat that over and over and that's me pretty much but I won't go on about it, I'm strongly against getting sympathy from others so if I do get any comments on this I can imagine what they'll be after reading this paragraph and I don't need it, there's people much worse off than me. I've got music, Christianity and friends to keep me going. I finally found my faith before last Christmas when my friend passed away. Being at his funeral inspired me to finally read the bible and it's answered so many questions about life I've had, even if those answers are pretty morbid.

Anyways moving on, I've been kinda getting "out of" watching anime as... Well I just can't be bothered watching any of it now, maybe I just need a really good one to get me back into it.... I might check out Hellsing as the people who animated that anime made one of my favourite animes of all time that is GunGrave (I think they did anyway), I love that anime so much...  Especially the games, the first GunGrave game has to be my favourite all time PS2 game, it's so good... Or I think I just have a fetish for characters that use giant impractical duel wield handguns as their main weapon, I don't know what it is when I see a character like that I just love the shit out of them because they instantly become a badass in my mind. I've been considering getting Beyond the Grave's coffin as a tattoo for my arm, that would be so cool and awesome. So uh yeah if you ever see a character I've made with that trait then you know what I'm going for heheh.

Something else that's been on my mind is I miss RPing ._. I remember when I used to RP with loads of people and now I never talk to most of them, it sucks but oh well. Think I'll wrap this up here anyway, so this be TU signing off.
  • Mood: Pain
  • Listening to: The Gorillaz
  • Reading: Music Theory when I can be bothered
  • Watching: Been rewatching The Office, love that show so much
  • Playing: Not games, forget I have those
  • Eating: Not much
  • Drinking: Tornado energy drink
Think I just invented an awesome word...  Anyway, been ages since I've done one of these so... Why not. Important news first: I got myself a job! Got one at a Burger King annnnd... Yeah you really don't want to have a job at a fast food place. It's friggen horrible but hey it's a job and hey it's giving me an income. Funny how I started there, I got the call early last month saying I got the job. Then they never got back to me, and it was on the day before Halloween I was out buying my Halloween stuff and I figured I might as well go to the Burger King and ask when I start. I go there after buying everything and see the Supervisor who interviewed me, I asked him, and he said "Do you want to work right now?" and was like "...sure?" and straight away they had me working. ._. Was a stressful 6 hours that day, was shitting myself so much the entire day and worrying super hard about doing things wrong but I got through it. Then I was given my rotor... Had to work over Halloween... Sucked super hard, bought all my stuff for nothing and I'll have to wait for next year now... Would have made an amazing Alice Cooper too, but oh well. I've worked in there for four days, and my god... It's safe to say I can't wait to quit, which I'm gonna around the time I turn 18 and search for a better job. Why another job? Because when 18, you do nightshifts there, and hell if I'm doing nightshifts... But yeah, that's all my job news out of the way.

What else.... I'm still in college doing musics, don't know if I ever will do something with music but we'll see, we'll see. Kinda ironic really, the metalhead rocker who wants to make and play music for a living is working in a fast food place heheh.

Umm... And yeah, been super busy helping out a friend with his life. Super sucks for him right now and I've pretty much done all that I can to help support him in is time of need. It pays off to help people, it really does.

That's it I think, been living the life of an adult, well, fitting in with what society wants from an adult anyway. It wants you to fall in line and become a machine... But I'm going in too deep there.

I probably won't be uploading anything from here on out... I've stopped drawing and I've stopped writing. ._. Just like the lyrics in Weezer's Beverly Hills song:

"I'm just a no class, beat down fool
And I will always be that way
I might as well enjoy my life
And watch the stars play." --- Fits me fine in regards to DA, I'm not cut out for it but other people are so I'll just enjoy their work. But who knows, maybe in the future I'll get back in to it but it's not a certainty.
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: Whatever the situation calls for.
  • Reading: Nothin'.
  • Watching: Need to watch more anime...
  • Playing: Mah guitar.
  • Eating: Food I'd hope.
  • Drinking: Drinking drinks.

Yo! Well, I'm a super lazy person who isn't motivated at all but once I am I can be quite creative! ^^ I play a couple instruments, I watch anime, game a little and write a little. I'm also hoping to become an awesome musician in a few years.

Favourite genre of music: Orchestral/Punk/Metal/Rock/Tiny bit of Trance and a bunch of Sub-Genres coming from those, so basically almost anything.
Favourite style of art: Anime/manga
Favourite cartoon character: Sonic the hedgehog :D
Personal Quote: Whatever happens, happens.

Dude I didn't know there was a REAL band named Tenacious D! o.O I thought that was just Jack Black's fake band in the movie.
