Wow, it's been a whole year since my last journal?? Guess I wasn't kidding about giving up, huh? Well, like, all of you are dead, so oh well.
This journal entry was mostly prompted by deviantArt's new "Don't use adblock!" things. Fuck you, dA! Part of why I started using adblock is because of the fucking ads on THIS website. You remember how for a while the ads were installing malware on people's computers? Or how about how there would be two or three audio ads on every page that would autoplay, very loudly, and there was no way to mute them? I'm sorry that the increased fee on "core" memberships isn't enough to pay for this website that people are slowly leaving, but I'm not turning off adblock. Especially not after you removed several free features. Why should I support you? You've done literally nothing for me.
As for me, you can find me on tumblr here pimientos-especiales.tumblr.co…
I never upload art anymore. The years have beat my joy and confidence out of me, so, there is nothing. I do occasionally post photos, but right now that blog is like 50% other people's cats.
There's nothing up as of right now, but here's another blog: igly-wamble.tumblr.com
This is supposed to be a humorous blog that involves insulting Shakespeare quotes being pasted on irrelevant public domain photos. It's stupid, like everything else I do.
If you like my Lima Losers OCs, you can go here: singinglosers.tumblr.com
I don't update much there, because nobody is following that blog, and why should they? The original content is only interesting to me, like everything else I do. But, it's there. Some day that comic will exist. Or maybe I'll get hit by a bus and it won't! Blah.

if you feel like making money. Nobody ever signs up for this so I don't feel like singing its praises, but I've made over $1000 with that website since I joined, and I barely do anything on there.
If you like my writing (ha) and also like recaps/reviews of tv shows no one cares about anymore, check out my writing blog! thatsavvy.wordpress.com/
I haven't updated there in a while.
If you like my Inuyasha fanfiction, please go here! www.fanfiction.net/u/1701599/K…
I do sorely need to update and I'm planning on rewriting the first few chapters eventually, but there are more chapters up there than on dA, and I update there more often.
Also feel free to leave a comment on there that isn't "update asap" or "awesome chapter".
Uhh I guess that's it. I'm kind of dead here, huh? Like I said, I'm pretty done with uploading artwork anymore. The total lack of response here, on tumblr, and even on Facebook, and especially in real life, is extremely discouraging. It was hard back in high school, it was harder in college, and it's just... I feel so defeated now. But oh well. I know complaining on the internet never does anything. I can't even get people to wish my happy birthday or say "Oh sorry your dog died!
" But I'm just about out of fucks to waste on this anymore.
But, uh, it is just still hard to feel confident and happy when your mom shares your other uncle's dumb photos that he sells as dumb bags and her friends are like "Oh good I'll buy one!" but she never shares literally anything you ever post on Facebook, including stuff to be purchased. It's just, it's not very comforting to see your mom care about everyone else's artwork and never your own, you know? But I'm working on taking the keen sting of jealousy out by never producing any creative work again. It's pretty clear it's just not working for me, and never has, and nobody cares. Nobody ever cares.
I guess personal updates: Assuming the health center actually ever calls me again, I'll be put up for consideration for anti-anxiety meds! I hope I get approved for them. That'd be neat.
I got a dog! Just back in February. Her name is Cookie and she's a sassy little chihuahua who loves children (which is weird, since she's a little dog) and is terrified of plastic bags, and is very startled by yarn, the floor fan, the quilt rack, an American Girl doll, doors opening, construction, rat noises on tv, and her own reflection occasionally. She's a lap dog and is now extremely spoiled. She also really hates golden retrievers with a mighty passion - which I'm sure is related to how she lived with one in her previous home - and she also REALLY hates our building's maintenance manager and his awful dog.
Also my really cool uncle and his wife moved to the next city over, so we get to see them sometimes! They gave me an extra Tyrion and Joffrey Funko mini they had.
Oh I got a new iPod touch as a sort of trip treat last September and I'm SO TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH OTOME GAMES NOW. Even though the plots in so many of them are stupid, and the characters are awful, I love them so much. Wizardess Heart+ is my favorite, but I also really love Niflheim+ for how different the characters are. I mean, most of the games have the same sets of characters you'd be familiar with if you read a lot of shoujo - here's the princely one with hidden depths; here's the jerk; here's the pervert; here's the tall, aloof one; here's the one who acts like a 6 year old but is really deeply troubled inside; here's the jerk who's actually a real softy inside and likes cats (why is that a thing?!); here's the guy who says what's on his mind and doesn't mean to be so hurtful; here's the mysterious one - you know, that stuff, plus they're all pretty. Niflheim gets extra credit because the characters, in addition to fitting various shoujo tropes, has a zombie, a skeleton, and a ghost as dateable options (although the ghost isn't REALLY a ghost). The other characters are also all dead... and so are you/the main character!
Anyway, the Shall We Date games that are free are really great. I like them. Elliott, Benkei, Elias, Joel, Leon, Randy, Alfred, Jean, Nick, Oz, Crowlie, and Kaito are my boys. <3
And finally, WATCH IZOMBIE
. It doesn't premiere season 3 until 2017, unfortunately, but season 1 is on Netflix now and season 2 should be up soon. It's a crime/murder-solving procedural, with the twist being that the main character is a zombie who eats the brains of the victims, and that way she takes on their personalities, and memories, which helps solve the case. The show also has an overarching plot line, which actually sometimes directly relates to the murder of the week.
Also A+ recommendation of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bob's Burgers, Mad Men (which in my opinion is the greatest show I've ever seen; I have lots of favorites, but I say that's the most finely crafted show I've seen), Kitchen Nightmares, Fresh Off the Boat, and The Real O'Neals. And iZombie. iZombie is my favorite show that airs new episodes. SO FUCKING AWESOME. I watched the first episode on the plane ride to Tampa on a whim and was hooked almost immediately. IT'S SO GREAT. I love that show. I'm still miffed I didn't get season 1 for Christmas. Or my birthday! Maybe this year. Probably not. But it's really good, I love everyone on it. Even the important people who died who shall remain nameless because I don't want to spoil it. GO INTO THAT SHOW SPOILER-FREE, YOU WON'T REGRET IT. Also season 1 is only 13 episodes long, season 2 is I think 19. Even though they're 45 minute episodes, it won't take long to finish the seasons. And then you can IMMEDIATELY REWATCH THEM like I do.
Well, that's it. I'll probably come by again to eliminate all the rest of this stuff and just leave the links.
