I don't be on here often. I passed high school - oh wait, I already said that in my last journal i believe lol. Um...Welp...omg..like I want to draw something so freaking bad!!!! I'm still in the MK fandom...planning on getting a brand new computer and giving my old one to my mom. because this one..like..it's okay..but I can't do what I want on it because of GB space for one and graphics and too many things, plus, i miss the Deviantart community. Where I could nerd out, draw something and feel inspired. communicate with my favorite artists, etc. it's like as soon as I started working and had school last year..i felt so...distant.
All I did when I got home was be on the internet, and then for a little while, go to sleep and start all over again the next day. But that's when I first started working. I didn't know how to make time for anything. But I got tired of just going straight to sleep when I'm off work..so i guess that's why I never changed my schedule. can't stand to do repetitive things in the same time...like omg, I just can't.
I might start rigging again as soon as my new pc comes. I finally got the funds...By a company called Network Of One...one of the managers went through hell and back trying to get in contact (and because I don't know how the New youtube works and me not being on here a lot like I was, it was nearly impossible). But here I am writing this journal lol. they found my channel by one of my videos going viral - a sims 2 video, it's up to 6 million views, but that's on my used-to-be main channel before youtube started being difficult and giving me copyright strikes. (le sigh)
But anyways, I was skeptical at first ...most likely because someone tried to take my credit card info x.x the day I got in contact with them...but I gave them a chance. And the fact that I didn't have to enter my CC info eased me up a little bit. and to be honest, I thought the network of one who contacted me was a scam...But I did my research and found no dirt on them. so I signed a contract for them to use their ad(s) on my sims 2 video. and they were willing to pay me for that. and here I am now, still shocked over the whole thing. Because, let's be honest, how often does this happen?
I didn't think my videos would really reach far...let alone to the point where a company that helped other channels. i would do video editing because I wanted to and just did whatever came to mind, wheter it was amvs, sims, MEPs, anything.
video editing used to be my passion years ago, hell, sometimes, I still video edit. But I never know with what nowadays because I have no passion, not to mention my computer is laggy and the gb space for it is very low (like, 15 gb on my main, and the other 6gb) so depending on what shows/movies/video games I edit, I would have to convert them somehow to minimize the size of the clips. not only with them. but with sims 2, I had to minimize certain things as well. not to mention my video card, etc. All that got so tiring, I kinda just...slowly but surely...stopped eventually. I had no passion anymore - and forcing myself to do MEPs (Multi-Editor-Project) when I had no passion, or on the verge of finding some was just....draining a little.
But...I feel like video editing a little...not because what happened to me in a span of few days - but because I got Mortal kombat 10...and like the geek I am, I'm already fangirling and shipping people left and right...haaaaa...good times lol. plus, I see a few of my favorite artists shipping too, makes me not feel so alone anymore (not that I was ever alone to begin with, but still)
To be honest, I don't know why I rambled on and on. But I think I feel better somehow. And honestly, I thank network of one with my heart for giving me an opportunity. and I thank anyone who's been reading my shitty journals for these past years lol. (might make a testimonial video for this company when I get a chance.)
Wow..I felt like I went on a drunken rant...except I'm sober and it's not a rant.
