Rebirth of the Sorceress: 02
When you've been alone for as long time as I have you forget what it's like to be around other humans. How to act, what to say and generally what to do. I don't think it was completely unreasonable of me to react with fear and shock when a person interacted with me in any way for the first time in centuries. For days I hid out in the only place I could still feel somewhat safe. My old home. When I was first exiled, my family tried to stay and fight for what was rightfully theirs. Eventually they were losing ground and time changed. What had been in their favour now turned against them. Sooner or later they had to move. When the unfortunate day came, they had to leave the house, the cattle and most of our belongings. They were left to waste away, left to rot. Like me. As time passed, things started to deteriorate as nature retook it. Whatever cattle we had by the time of my exile either managed to flee the farm or died from hunger or thirst. Interesting enough, no one ever came around t

  • Listening to: Robyn - Dancing on My own (radio)
  • Reading: College briefs
  • Watching: TheRPGMinx
  • Playing: Jurassic Park Builder
  • Eating: Nothing....
  • Drinking: Tea!

So I thought it was time to write a new entry, as shit as it may be. I'm well aware I kinda use this journal thing as place to just dispose some of my emotions, but who cares?

Anyway. So as some of you may have noticed, or not, I haven't been very active on DA as of late. It's pretty much due to a super busy life, whether it's in term of actual activity or just lots of minor things at the same time. Money has been a constant pressing issue for me and I've almost had a mental breakdown because of it. But I'm trying to keep it together for at least another few months. I'm not sure what will happen then, but I'm hoping it will be easier. Still looking for job, okay so I admit, I haven't been looking as eagerly and hard as I could've, but can you blame me?

Apart from that. My social life is pretty empty and shit at the moment, one of my few close friends moved to France quite recently and I just feel lacking of any social contact. That doesn't bother me for most of the time, but when you're abroad and struggle with everything else, that's just something that is like the topping of the whole thing. I dunno.

Hmm what else is there? Well, I have some sort of issue with one of my tutors at the moment at my college. We just don't seem to come to an agreement... like ever, whenever we speak. She makes me feel rather useless, and while I'm aware I'm not great, I'd rather get some constructive criticism as supposed to the constant negative one I'm receiving at the moment. Maybe I'm looking too much into things, but I just don't like it. I feel pretty down about it, and though I'm trying my hardest, it's never enough. But oh well. I'm trying to just take it and do something positive with it, whenever I can...

On a good note. I've been doing some rather simple, and not the best kind, title cards. They've been made for Mangaminx on youtube. You can watch her old channel here or her current one (the one I've made a few title cards for)… For those who doesn't know, she's an LetsPlayer who record and comment the games she plays. I know it may sound odd, but I find it entertaining and she can sure brighten my day at times. Please look it up if you think that's for you.

Other than that, there isn't much. I will keep going and hopefully, the next time I write I will have some good news to report. I really do hope so.

Until then!

Over and Out!

Welcome to the world of skeptikern.... ehmm, right...
However, I can start to tell you what the word "Skeptikern" means since some asks me. It pretty much means "the sceptical one" if you would say it like that... I guess... However, that is more or less how I am.

Drawing is a big part of my interests, but it's far from my only interest. I love reading and watching movies and tv shows. During recent months I've started to write my own stories. Some I may post and most I won't. It's just something I find my self time for even if I might not really have it. It's how I relax you could say....

Well that is all for now, short and boring, and somewhat incoherent, but you'll survive. I'm sure of it.

See ya!

Hello there,

It's been a good while indeed.

On my part life hasn't been to kind on me. Life has really stirred some shit and I've had some trouble just be able to relax and do things. Due to lots of unwanted drama and due to lack of time, which itself is due to the drama. And course work.... Apart from that. I think things are calming down a bit now.... Hopefully.

As for the website. Well. I've kinda given up on my own. Mainly because I realise I don't know what I'm supposed to use it for, and then that I couldn't be bothered looking after it. But I am due to do some more web designing and coding in the near future. So that should be all right.

How's things with you? Life been kind to you?

It seems life has been attacking everyone. Life sucks, I'm learning more about my family and myself. Its a lot more unpleasent then I thought it would be. But i'm used to stupid shit happening so I'm sure I can get over it. It just takes awhile sometimes. I hope things clear up for you. Its not easy dealing with so much crap at once and I'm damn sure you dont deserve it.

Well I would say put your art on there but,if your paranoid like me, you probably want a copy right on it or something. I'm still thinking about making a website of my own but I want to finish some stories first so i'll actually have stuff on it. I cant wait to see more of your work :)

Oh and I'm now graduating from highschool. I kinda feel special, even though I didnt do so well this year. I'm 18. I graduated now its time for me to live my life the way I think it should be.

Hope you do well and I hope things get easier for you. <3

I think life isn't too keen on people right now. Not sure why. But it's been tough lately. That much I can say.

I'm really sorry to hear that things seem to have "gone to hell" for you at home as well. I can only hope that it's something you can eventually move on from or accept. That it takes time to do is given however. So yeah. Take the time you need to heal. As for me. Well I'm not completely sure to be honest. When I don't think things on one front can't get any worse I get proven wrong. over and over again. And I'm on the brink of just stepping up and say "that's enough" but I'm not quite there yet. Life in general really sucks. Like you said.

I'm probably just as paranoid. I'm trying to get to the point where I'll probably store all my old, rather useless work and then just start to put up "good stuff" just to make a better name for myself really. your own website eh? That's cool. Are you intending on doing it yourself or having someone to help you? oh, you write your own stories? That's really cool. What are they about?

Congratulations. Only makes me feel all the more older seeing as it would've been three years ago I did that. LOL :giggle: So what do you think you wanna do afterwards? Anything specific or just see how it goes?
