I realized that I went the entire month of January not mentioning what's been going on with me.
For starters, the reason I've been open for art trades and responding to commissions quicker than usual is because I dropped my winter quarter. This doesn't mean I dropped out of my art college, it just means I'm taking a break and will return for the spring quarter. I dropped the quarter to work more for my dad, focus a bit more on drawing, and because I had been having some health issues. Although, I've been thinking that it might have been better for my health if I had gone for my winter quarter, because my home is undergoing a very bad gas leak. In fact, the entire area I live in has been has undergone a bad gas leak. I'm sure some of you know about the Porter Ranch gas leak that's been going on for the last few months. My family and I live some miles away from the well that's causing the leak of methane and other bad gases. My family and I, as well as thousands of other people living in the area, have been having headaches, nausea, and other symptoms caused by the leak. My mom and sisters have even had frequent nose bleeds. A few people have even died because of the gas leak, but they were living much closer to the well than my family and I. Hundreds of people in the affected area have been temporarily relocated to get away from the leak; my family and I are listed, but we haven't taken up on it. The news says the well was finally plugged up today, but the effects of the leak are still here. This gas leak has been considered one of the worst natural disasters in California.
Now, moving on from one disaster to another, how about them Fine Bros? I had watched some of their content in the past, but stopped some time last year and didn't think much about them... until now. I don't need to restate what many people already know about what kind of people these "Bros" have become. I found myself unsubscribing to a lot of youtubers lately that I was once very commited to, I won't name names but there are just way too many youtubers that have lost their touch due to either being celebrities, getting super clustered, and sometimes just losing what made me like them in the past. I was really glad to see the opposite happen to Caddicarus, a video game reviewer, who's videos had been getting pretty clustered. He announced recently that he'd be cutting back on some of his series in order to get back to his roots, what made his channel as successful as it's become, and I appreciated that a lot. Not many youtubers are willing to do that, some keep adding newer and newer things to their channels in order to appeal to their audience, making them less of what made them appealing to begin with. I even found some youtubers, that I liked in the past and then stopped liking but never unsubscribed, have recently become just as funny as they once had. Maybe some of them need time in order to figure out what they want for both themselves and their channels.
Eh, that's just some stuff that I've been up to besides what I'm doing here on DeviantART. Oh, by the way, if anyone manages to get far enough to read this bit, I have a question. Which would be better, doing point commissions or paypal commissions? I finally got my paypal ready and transferred the points I've made doing commissions over to my account, but would it be more convenient to just do paypal commissions? If you think you can help me out, tell me what you think in the comments below. Anyways, thanks for reading this. Have a nice day!
