I know, I know.

I need to actually start putting stuff back on here again.

That being said, I've actually been working on two or three different songs and I can't decide which of them will make the final cut and actually get uploaded. Besides that, I've been very slowly fleshing out the details on a comic series that I think people will like a lot. I've had it on my mind for weeks, but actually drawing the darn thing is the hard part.

For those of you who have never drawn comics before: yes, drawing comics is actually pretty damn hard.

I've at least got a good idea of what I want the comic to be about, now I just have to muster up the willpower to get the thing done. I'll let people know about concrete details once I'm sure.

Are any of you particularly interested in mysticism, necromancy, etc.? Heavy themes like that. Just need to flesh them out a bit more and make them more solidly coherent, then I'm gonna start uploading.

Let's be real, I think I'm losing my talent for making art and music.

It's been a very long time since I've been able to release a new song. I just haven't had the right inspiration.

I'm sure it will come again one day; but it may be a while.

I hope everyone at least enjoys what I've already made.

(And yes, I am technically making new stuff right now but it's a very long time in the making.)

I know, I know.

I should have posted at least something relevant by now. Hey, I'm still doing some reviews and/or uploading content on an extremely limited basis. Truth is that I'm in a weird transition period of my life (AGAIN) and I'm trying to decide where to go from here. It's a big deal.

Might even lose contact or something, not sure. Things are completely unpredictable.

On top of all that I can't stop this nagging feeling that something big is about to happen before the end of the year that might be completely out of my control.

Hey. Stay tuned. I *am* in fact working on projects but not as much Newgrounds stuff. Sorry all. I promise I should upload at least one more awesome thing before the end of November.

I might participate in the non-competitive VGM contest thing I saw on the front page a few days ago.

But I won't be able to do anything until I finish nursing this nasty migraine I've had for roughly 2 full days.

Gonna try and release new music soon again I swear.

I've been working on/off on art projects but I've been really disappointed with them.

I'll try to upload something impressive this month.

Man, I don't know what to say. Work sucks. I feel like I've made a terrible mistake.

I went back into what I'd easily call the "tried and true" route to employment, which is basically just taking an awful retail job and just trying to make it work despite being paid almost literal pennies to stay alive. It keeps the lights on, but it makes me feel like I'm dying. At this point it's almost literal, because I almost didn't make it through my last shift.

I can't even categorize an emotion for this post; so I'll just leave it blank. It's kind of like realizing how much time you've been wasting and for how long. I've tried the flying solo thing but I lack the confidence to use anything I've learned to make any real money. You don't realize how hard things like that are until you actually try.

Progress on pretty much all of my creative projects has halted, including some stuff I was relatively excited about. There's just no time or energy. My job robbed me of that; and it's still robbing me. It's still basically killing me.

I've started to reach out to some people that might be able to help me figure out what it is I really want to do with my life. Because right now? This ain't it chief, I feel like a shell of my former self.

"Hey how often do you change your profile picture?"

I don't change it for long periods of time because I'm extremely lazy as an artist.

While I love writing, game design, programming, etc. I have developed a particular distaste for actually drawing things because I'm not nearly passionate enough about it.

If you see art on here by me and it actually looks GOOD then please treasure it, because it's likely to be extremely rare.

In fact, I'm pouring a lot of my effort into making a new website where I'm going to host or link things I've made.

So no worries folks I'm doing alright. At least for now.

I hope you are, too.

I haven't had time to make much music or art because I made the mistake of diving head-first into programming.

At this rate I'll probably become at least kinda good at C++ and C# before the end of the year.

Finishing up one major project, then possibly wrapping up another one in a few months.

All the while my job situation is really weird but hey- I've made it this far, right?

I forgot to mention.

You can use any of the previously uploaded tracks EXCEPT "Mourning" and "Hope".

I'm holding on to those, building up an album with piano music.

Any other songs may be used as long as you credit me as the original creator; whatever you do with them besides that is up to you. I hope you enjoy the music.
