Er... Everything I upload appears in here? Not much to say

Pieces that make me go look for that huge yellow button
Hello everyone! Coming here wih the first Journal of the year :la:.

As some of you might know, while I do enjoy the New Year's Celebration the change of the calendar it's really nothing that interesting for me. The 6th of January on the other hand it's kinda of a big thing for me though: It marks another years since I fist submitted a story here t DeviantArt and became a hobby writer.

Wow, it's been 6 years already? It sure doesn't feel like it, time seems to have flown by much faster with each passing year. Still, at this point I actually find it hard to believe there was a time I would have never pictured myself writing anything for fun. It's interesting to see how much things can change with just a single decision. It is because of this that I got to meet many great persons, done things I would have never pictured, and heck! Even learned something about myself and how far can I go when taking myself out of the equation and just becoming a way for an idea to flow. Granted, this last year I haven't done so that much (In fact, I probably did much less than years before) but it can be incredibly liberating when I do so.

To anyone out there reading this and wondering what can be so great about making walls of text all I can say is... Give it a try, yiu can never know what lies ahead.

I'm not for cycles but I do believe a year is a good period of time to measure changes so let's see the results!

2010: fav.me/d2gzptt (First submission).
2011: fav.me/d354xjw (Submission mentioned in that year's Journal).
2012: fav.me/d4lilon (Submitted exactly on that Journal's date).
2013: fav.me/d5pvg6q (Submission mentioned in that year's Journal).
2014: fav.me/d6z9mw3 (Submission mentioned in that year's Journal).
2015: fav.me/d8cwdrt (Submitted on that Journal's date).
2016: fav.me/d9k3eta (Latest submission)

Results: Drastic improvements over the first year, grammar, punctuation and word usage improvement over the next and after that the improvement seems to have slowed down to a crawl. In fact, I can hardly tell a difference between last year's and this one's, if anything the themes are different and that's about it, they feel a bit more lighthearted than serious and epic. Guess I'm past the "Blow away your audience" stage and just moved over to simply entertain? I mean, there are many serious and epic stories out there, sometimes we just need something a bit more calm and down to earth.

Then again, it may just be that this last year was just so... Fast. At one moment I was simply going on with school, playing games, hanging out and writing stories, but suddenly I was finishing my classes, graduating. Before I knew it I was getting a car, having more responsibilities, enrolling in a new school, getting a job. Everything changed so fast I had trouble adapting to the situation and so outside my balance and comfort zone that I couldn't feel comfortable enough to come up with anything I could consider worth writing about (Or anything at all: The number of Deviations made by me last year barely reach the two digits -.-).

In fact, there was even this period from April to September where I was just a NEET (No school or work) and I did nothing but play the same videogames over and over again, RP with random people (Ooh, so that's where all my writing went this year?), watch random videos and just feel... Useless, questioning what was the point in doing anything.

I for one I'm thankful I was lucky enough to have this period of (Grief?) in a relatively safe and short session though, at least now I am aware of how a person can sink down into what seems like an endless spiral of emptiness. I can't say I'm completely out of it (I do occasionally still get my moments of seeing how pointless life can be (Seriously, just a bunch of cells staying alive? Is that really that interesting? :XD:)), but it's a part of me I rarely ever explored. For good or bad now I've come to terms with it.

OK, that actually sounds pretty grim, it honestly wasn't that bad, towards the end of the year I did manage to get my inspiration back... Along with a sweet new portable keyboard that lets me write pretty much anywhere (Thank you Android!) :D.

And now on a happier and completely unrelated note, "Feliz Dia de Reyes"!!! (I think they call that "Epiphany" everywhere else). For those wondering, it's another winter catholic/christian holidays regarding a biblical event about some Oriental Kings bringing gifts to the Messiah (Jesus). I'm not a very religious person but over here in Mexico we do celebrate it with friends and family by getting together to eat a traditional cake. Sounds silly on paper but trust me, it's a pretty good celebration :la:.

So, that's all on my end, how about on yours?

Chatroom:
You can find me here most of the time I'm online (You'll get to know me better if you chat with me anyway XD):
chat.deviantart.com/chat/RDFCO…

What can I say about me? I'm just some sort of complicated introverted person that could hardly even be considered"Normal." I swear it's not on purpose though, it's just the way I live

I write enough stories to consider myself a writer and I can say is one of my passions. I'm not a serious writer though, considering all of my stuff is only fanfiction since even when I have made my own characters I'm using a ready-made cannon. Said that, most of my works are about Pokemon, specially :icontamarinfrog: Pokemon series "Random Doom" to which I have a strange addiction (Don't question me! That thing is amazing, go and see for yourself). In fact I have even translated her comic, the links are below.

I also do a small share Flash animation, digital editing (Considering I can't draw to save my life) and Sprite animation such as my avatar. I'm always open for small animated avatar requests so don't hesitate to ask, even though I'm slow XD

My other main passion is music. It's hard to show on Deviantart but I play guitar, bass, drums, violin, flute and keyboards. I'm afraid I can't say I'm better than "decent" on most of them save for guitar and keyboards, in which I can consider myself at least "average." You may find a link to any cover I make and if you ever need assistance on any project feel free to contact me.

Just like most people in this site I love videogames (Pokemon is the most obvious by now though), most Anime series, comics, cartoons and books. You may call me a geeky, nerd, freak or whatever you wanna call me; after all that's me, and I rather be that than a fake, empty, flaw person (That sounded a bit aggressive, oh well).

I guess that would pretty much sum up who I am and what I do. Feel free to say hi, I won't bite.

Hey. Remember the "Random Doom: HALO" series? Well, once I get time I will make "pages" using photoshop and draw comics of the series. 

Something like a more "pencil-drawn/colored" version of this > comicsmedia.ign.com/comics/ima…

Having trouble with the color? That's my favorite part to do! Just leave it as a sketch and call it a day then :D.

I don't mean to bug you, but I have a question.

I know I would get some kind of "achievement" on my Random-Doom-Fanclub membership card....but....

I don't know how to make one.

I've tried to make one, but I've failed.
