I have to say, it was a little weird typing 2020 in the date range. At least in part because everyone keeps saying it’s a new decade so my brain keeps trying to tell me it’s 2021. I guess it depends on when you start counting. Anyway, nothing is going to change, other than what I typed on the page date this time. Nothing I was told we were going to get by 2020 has appeared. No moon base, flying cars, jet packs. At least iPods are pretty cool. I like having a computer that connects me to people every moment of my waking existence way better than stuff that flies. I’m terrified of flying. I only like the concept of the moon base because of discoveries that will improve my surface dwelling life.
Anyway, I got a resin printer for Christmas, so if any of you have any hot tips on what software I should learn to start making awesome things to print let me know of them. Obviously I want to do character figures at some point, but if I can just get to where I can make custom Transformer guns & stuff that would be a good start. It’s an Elegoo Mars, which is the popular budget unit going around youtube at the moment. I don’t have all the stuff I need for safety so I haven’t done a test print, but it appears to work as far as I can tell.
As long as I’m thinking about it, thank you to the various people who sent me anonymous gifts this year. You found a way to stop me from offering you drawings in return. Although if you can tell me what you sent me I’d still do one for you. I assume you didn’t tell me who you were specifically so I couldn’t. In any case, thank you for thinking of me & for trying to keep me from adding more stuff to my list of things to do.
My entire life is a huge mess right now. There’s boxes all over, my stuff is in complete disarray. I’ve basically lived in my bedroom for 4 months because of the random sicknesses I keep experiencing. My weight is the highest it’s ever been in my life from the lack of activity, which is destroying my joints & back. I am doing better recently though, so maybe I can turn that around. Get things cleaned up so I can throw out my old bed & get a new one.
It all started with my shoulder getting badly messed up, which set me to staying in bed because I couldn’t get up and down from the floor anymore. I didn’t really talk about any of it at the time. At least not in enough depth for you guys to know exactly how bad it was. All my plans outside of doing the comic and patreon stuff just sort of deteriorated from there. My lego project stalled out & someone kind of beat me to a different version of my basic idea, which took the wind out of my sails. I kept adding more and more stuff to my art workload too, which kept me from having time to even move around. I’m going to try & not say yes to every project that comes along now. I just can’t work fast enough to keep up with the constant stream of things. At least I’ll think about doing it. Chances are I’ll just keep doing what I always do & reach well past my abilities at all times. XD
Things are okay, except when they aren’t, but I’m glad you all come here, day after day, to watch me dance. Serving you all has been my most rewarding experience out of any job I ever had. Hopefully you’ll still enjoy my services in another ten years…
Depending on when you start counting.
