Whew. Over a year since my last journal. How do I do it? Why, I owe it all to staying busy and social inferiority.

In all seriousness, I've been busy. More so than usual or than I typically am this time of year. My hours at work have gotten longer. Considerably longer. To the point where even on my days off I find myself occasionally sleeping in. Which hurts because I almost always have some kind of time table for things to do. Not life or death kinda things, but I like to plan things out and follow through. And when things get sidelined like that, it just starts taking away from others things in succession.
I am still keeping busy (In the good way I mean). It's just when you pull a few fourteen hour days back to back, you don't quite feel as energized to draw. Even with eight hours and a couple sodas.

Currently I have two works near completion. One comic and one Halloween pic. I'm also undertaking my first meme which I was cordially invited to partake in with :iconshock777:. My half is done, I'm just waiting for her to finish.
I was hoping to at least have been halfway through the next chapter of my fic Broken Spirit. But as mentioned, things kinda went sideways. I'm hoping the next few weeks give me some time to formally start putting things down. So if anyone is curious as to when the next update will be, I'll have it as soon as I can. And believe me I'm anxious to get this one out. Especially after the cliffhanger I left the last one on.

Now, let's get some positivity out in the open:

There used to be an anime shop I frequented for years until about four years ago when they shut down. In light of my impulse buying, I was sad to see it go. After I graduated I didn't know how much longer I'd be staying down here, so I shipped ALL my anime wall scrolls and a good chunk of my other anime stuff home. But recently a new anime shop has opened up. Granted, it is smaller by comparison, and the inventory is rather limited. But hey, I'll take what I can get.  So now, I've got all new wall art. Over a dozen new wall scrolls. *dreamy sigh* It's like redecorating for the soul.

My request for time off for the holiday season has been approved. Haven't booked my flight yet, but I'll be home for Christmas. Which, if I can only be home once out of the year, is the only time I'd want.

And... Ghostbusters.

Let that one sink in for a minute.

. . .

After Harold Ramis passed, my heart sank because I thought any chance of another movie being made went with him. But they're finally doing something with the franchise. I know a lot of people are somewhat confused and seemingly irritated. Not just over the idea of a remake, but TWO remakes within a year of one another.
And look, there's still a year to go before it hits theaters, and I have made my love of Ghostbusters known since I came to DA. But let me share my thoughts. I'm not asking anyone to back me up, I'm not looking to incite any kind of reaction, I just wanna share what one fan is feeling right now.
I will admit, when the news of an all female cast came out, I was somewhat unsettled. Not because of the idea of female Ghostbusters. Because there HAVE been female Ghostbusters before. If you've watched the animated series, Janine Melnitz picked up a proton pack more than a few times. Kylie Griffin of the Extreme Ghostbusters was really the first regular, full fledged female Ghostbuster. And in the IDW comics there was a rival group called the Ghost Smashers, who were 3/4 female.
My concern with an all female cast was it was going to be a romantic comedy/drama with Ghostbusting in it. I bear no ill will against the director, the actresses, the writers, or anyone who pushed this into being. I was just fearful of it tarnishing something close to my heart, that I grew up with as a kid. Well, a littler kid than I am now.
But based on what I've seen from pictures online, the uniforms aren't that much of a departure from the original outfits, the proton packs do have a certain, cobbled together, improvised feel like the originals, the car... well. Okay, I'm still not sold on the new Ecto-1. But anyway, I'm reserving judgment until at the very least I see a trailer which is said to be out before the end of the year.
And while I want this to succeed to carry on the legacy, worst case scenario, it can't take away what I already love from the original.

So to summarize, I'm okay. And I hope everybody else is too.

Quote of the Day: "Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you'll be among the stars ...suffocating."
