First of all, i personally believe that art is relative, and have no right or wrong, better or worse. It is from the constructs of our ...

Bamboo Frozen Yogurt by JetEffects
Bamboo Frozen Yogurt

 This was done during a live stream on my youtube channel. Around 2hrs 24 mins you can see the reference photo. My girlfriend's  birthday was coming up weekend so I thought i'd celebrate it by painting this Anime version of her.  Happy Birthday BOogieOnster! Watch how I start the painting here! youtu.be/WnuC-6SinHc

HEEEEYYY You Beautiful People! I seem to have done it again! I've thought up a storm that has kept awake for the past 2 hours! Hahah, hopefully this isn't gonna be like the last post(Book) Haha =P (Razz) So it's 6:40am now, and I woke up last i checked 4:30 am. I tried to stay in bed, but I just couldn't fall back asleep. Well actually the problem was, I didn't want to. You see, I have "Smell Roses Disorder"... And I think i've thunk myself out of the disorder. Yeah who knew. I cherish everything too long and TOO DEEPLY! And THAT, is a problem. WHAA??? What the smoken who? 

Yeah so that's why I'm up. You see, there are two types of people that I've encountered in this world. Well 3, and I'd like to get to that in a second! Cause I think thats where I am, yes, SUPER SAIYAN LEVEL 3! Let's call them TYPE A, B, and C.

(*warning, I am basing all of this on personal experiences and everything could be BS, depending on who you are. Both sides can experience one another's side of course, but I mean if it's 80% here, its 20% over there. *)

Type A. Person A is the type who goes through life watching movies, playing video games, enjoying themselves seemingly without a care in the world. They get up for work each day, hustling and bustling doing what they do then come home and enjoy their hobbies, wether that be cosplaying, watching their favorite youtuber or hanging out with friends so care free. If they are artists, they draw, draw, and draw as if the world around them didn't even exists. 34 hours a day and they couldn't care less if their house was one fire.I just need to draw some more (not me) Of course when it comes to personal matters, it's dramatic and its the end of the world for them. It could be their next exam paper or missing sock, that they are stressing about, it's the only thing that matters at that moment. Nothing else mattered except what was in front of them. I remember being like this at a very young age. Come to think of it, Type A has a very childlike personality. Most of us, as children, didn't have a care in the world! We ate, slept, pooped, watched dbz/pokemon, and did all over again the next day. Not much to worry about as kids cuz Bills were paid for, food was taken care of, and if you were like me, you DREW! These people, seem to not give a DAM about what goes on around the world. Watchign their tv shows or Collecting their favorite fan art action figurines! WhAT about All the politics and catastrophes going on around the world? These aren't all kids either! Meaning there are adults who still live this way. I mean they go through life just living life! HOW DARE THEY!? I mean what about all the poor people, all the destruction and chaos And diseases? You never know when you might not wake up the next day! I'll talk to some and they'll be oblivious to even major world events. I mean, were they living in a hole? This is where I come in. Because of all the problems going on, i'm always thankful for every day I have to live. I'm the guy who always say to people, and especially to myself, "Be thankful for life. Take a biggo breath of fresh air and stop to smell the roses!" WHY DONT YOU STOP TO SMELL THE ROSES! SweetYY, WHY ARN"T YOU SMELLING THEM DAM ROSES??!! DO YOU NOT KNOW I COULD DIE IN THE NEXT 10 MINUTES? (making my girlfriend feel guilty) This is where TYPE B comes in.

Type B. This person (although I haven't met many others like this, I'm sure they are there) Goes through life thinking deeply about the thoughts feelings and problems around the world. Constantly analyzing EVERYTHING! They can't enjoy A movie because they are too busy pointing out all the technical things in the movie, good or bad. When it comes to the world, they post a lot of world problems, AS WELL AS innovations! But mostly Problems, and stories that they feel may help the solution. But because not the majority of people care for it, they can feel quite a lone. It's as if no one cares! Others care more about the 3rd trailer release to Star Wars, Or puppies. I mean who doesn't like puppies (I DO!) They can't just walk through a park, beach, or drive on the freeway, without pointing out to person next to them how miraculous everything looks. LOOK AT THEM CLOUDS! DO YOU SEE THAT MOUNTAIN! O MAN A ROCK! WOW! Now THATS a ROCK! I mean they notice everything. In a way, it's child like too! Always pointing things out for everyone to see. WHY DON'T PEOPLE SEE? Are they ZOMBIES? PAY ATTENTION YOU GUYS! And when it comes to relationships, they are very sentimental. Very just over the top at times. Let's take a PICTURE. Let's film a video! Gotta cherish the moment! Living life as if they were going to die the next day!

This is me, Type B. I've calmed down on pointing things out. I had to find a balance, cause I understand it can be annoying. For the most part, when it comes to world issues, I pick and choose what to share, everything else I keep to myself. I've learned to really just say, whatevs! I got my own things to worry about, and so DO EVERYONE ELSE! But an aspect I can't let go is how I cherish each and every day and moment. *warning bout to get sappy* Every weekend I have my girlfriend come over and spend the night at my place. As far as I can remember, I can spend 2 to even 3 hours just stroking her hair, or face till I myself falls asleep. After about 8 years of this, she sleeps through it NO PROBLEM! Like a rock. If I fall asleep and wake up at some time in the night, I have to peck her on the fore head a couple of times, and stroke hair and all that other mushy stuff before falling back to sleep. But I have NOOOO problem doing this. I mean for one it feels nice to me, but mostly it's cause i'm doing my best to cherish the moment. Cause I think to myself, If I die, or she dies, I can say, I've loved her as much as I could. I'm sure most happy couples do this. But I'm not sure to the this extent. I remember the first 2 years we were together, I didn't miss more then 2 nights of singing to her. I MEAN I dont think i missed ANY! But to be sure, i'll say 2. I'll sing like 4 or 5 songs EVERY, SINGLE, NIGHT!!! This isn't just with her either! JET YOU'RE ARE CHEATER?! No NO! I don't mean like that, I mean, when I'm having a happy moment with a friend, or family, I will sometimes go blank and try and breath in the moment. If I'm out I'll spend time "BREATHING IN" the moment. TRYING SO HARD TO HOLD ON TO THE FEELING! It's come to the point where I think maybe, it's TOO MUCH! WHA??? CHERISH TOO MUCH???? Sure it's great to cherish the moment, but there comes a time, when it's tooOOo MUCH! And I think that's what happened this morning. 

This morning I felt a deep sorrow.... Yeah don't worry it's not bad. It happens sometimes when I wake up too early. I think it has something to do with the chemicals in the head, when its super early, and doesnt have all the juices flowing yet. I DONT KNOW OKAY? But i felt quite depressed. It's hard to pinpoint the problem but I mean I was soOOooOo freaken sad. Every type of sad thought would run through my head. Even trying to smile didn't help. I was on the verge of tears. O I remember! I started thinking about the year, and how fast time flew. How fleeting life is. I know many of you have felt this way, I'm sure everyone does. I was like "you mean, one day my GF will BE GONE? And I won't have this moment with her??? IT's okay! LET ME JUST INHALE HER SCALP!!!" (Nearly woke her ass up AHAHA) OR "MOMMA GONNA DIE SOMEDAY? DONT WORRY, I'LL TAKE HER OUT TO EAT ASAP! We'LL GO SHOPPING AND EAT AND IT'LL BE GREAT!" Or "I CAN DIE TOMMOROW?? Crap, but that'll be devastating to mom..."(Not so devastating to GF, JK !!IM JOKING! XP) That one reaaAAAaaLLy made me sad. I havn't been afraid of dying since a LOOONG time. What makes me sad is what would people who care about me feel. I'll be fine dead, but what about mom? So I said, I KNOW WHAT! I'll WRITE A GOOD BYE LETTER TO EVERYONE! And I'll put it in an easy place to find like my shoe box encase I Die! This way if I go, I'll have a way to say good bye. Wow... I mean what am I Saying?? This is REALLY DEPRESSING JEt! A GOOD BYE LETTER???? What the hell is going on here? DON"T YOU DARE WRITE THAT LETTER! Yeah happy hormones kick in a second don't worry. But this is what I mean, over thinking everything. Thinking too much can get you DEADED! Hahaha. So I began to think. Why am I saying all of this? Well I think it stemmed from me cherishing the moment TOO HARD! Not being more like TYPE A! Just enjoy THE MOMENT AND DON"T THINK TOO MUCH! ENJOY IT! Stop second thinking everything! It's as if everyone is watching the movie of life, and I'm the only one NOT watching the movie! I'm busy analyzing. And even WORSE, i watch the people sitting next to me. I watch the expression on everyone's faces in theater. I PEOPLE WATCH! Literally as well as metaphorically! Think about that. I literally do this in the movie! Whille people are watching the movie, my mind flutters away from time to time to everything else but the movie. But I do it in real LIFE too! I can't just go through life beating my drum and following the crowd. I'm the one who is constantly off beat cause I'm looking everywhere else except the parade. THERES A PARADE GOING ON AND I'M LOOKING AT THE TINSLE ON MY FIGURE, OR YOUR FORE HEAD! I think i'm trying to cherish the moment, but by doing this I'm not in the MOMENT! Being in the moment means ENJOYING THE PARADE OR MOVIE ! And sometimes, I think It's OKAY TO NOT GIVE A SHIT TO BE IN THE MOMEN! YES! THIS IS IT! This is what made me have that "AH HAH!" moment. Cause i thought "what happens when the movie ends? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PARADE IS OVER?? What were yOU doing that whole time?" I was looking at the tinsel on ground.

While everyone is out enjoying the basball game, or video game, you were caught up with ALL the things around it. While everyone was laughing at the dinner, you were busy "trying to cherish that fleeting moment" I had to remind myself. Moments are fleeting. And that's what makes them special. People don't live forever, and that is what makes life so special!!! BINGO! I've heard this before many times, and I've preached it too, but I had to do some reallllll thinking to truly appreciate this. Fleeting moments are special because they ARE FLEETING! It's not good to take things for granted of course, but its also not too good if you can't JUST ENJOY YOUR BOWL OF NOODLES WITHOUT TAKING MENTAL PICTURE OF EVERYTHING AROUND YOU! Cause while I was busy watching the people around me, I MISSED THE WHOLE DAM THING. This wonderful movie we call life. I remember a guru once stated, "Life is a play, and we are all merely actors"  (There is spiritual meaning behind but maybe I'll get into that another time.) SO PLAY THE ROLE YOU WERE GIVEN! Sometimes it's okay to play these dramatic parts of life. And worry about that exam paper like theres no tommorow! Yeah you'll get over it, but you are dealing with it now, SO DEAL WITH IT However yuo feel, even it means crying in the corner until the due date! Or have your arguements with people about your favorite cartoon as if it's the most matter of fact thing. Wether you get over it or not is besides the point, RIGHT NOW WHAT MATTERS IS GOKU BEATS SUPER MAN EVERWAY YOU PUT IT DAMMIT! To forget EVERYTHING ELSE and be completely engrossed/lost in the moments we live. To just be okay with living. To be caught up in the fleeting problems we have. "Play the roles of the play" Get caught up in the guilty pleasures like video games, movies, action figures, or whatever you are into. Say, FUCK YOU WORLD! I'm gonna worry about me and forget everything else existed! Obviously this comes with keeping in the back of you mind that I'm thankful for every moment I have to live and for all the wonderful people I know. But while I cosplay as batman, I'm batman, and that's what im about! If you are one who get's lost, and is a hermit and ONLY lives like an OTAKU and NEVER stops to take a deep breath and be thankful  to breath another breath of precious air, I highly suggest you do. I mean THINK ABOUT IT! THIS AIR IS FREE! Just breath, theres plenty to go around. Wow what an amazing feeling. Maybe you should stop and smell the roses. You see that's an example of the things I would tell myself all the time!(I know I'm such a hippy) But I'm at the point where Im like, DAMMIT JET THEYRE BREATHING ALREADY!! WHERE ARE THE FUCKEN ROSES, IF THATLL SHUT YOU UP!!! So if you are like me, maybe it's time to say, YOU SMELlED ENOUGH ROSES! THE FLORIST WANTS YOU OUT OF THE GARDEN! Basically point is, What is the point of life, if you arn't living it. Don't live life as if you were gonna die every. Because how are you gonna get through the day if you are busy smelling every dam FLOWER!? DAM IM CRAZY!!

Balance is good. TYPE C is a balance of both. Being able to enjoy life while acknowledging and cherishing the moments without getting too lost in the act of cherishing. Being able to say you know what? It's okay to be selfish and indulge. BUT NOT TOO SELFISH OF COURSE. You can have your cake and eat it too. Watch a movie and get lost in it! I might glance at the people around me, but why did I come to see this movie we call life. To experience it! That's one thing I ask myself, if your dying self could talk to you today what would he say about this matter/ this whole ordeal. And I'm pretty sure he'd say. 

"LIVE IT YOU IDIOT! Cause while you were busy trying to inhale the moments you were living, everyone else was busy LIVING IT!" 

I think that pretty much summed up everything I was thinking. Writing is such a pain cause I have to make sure it all makes sense. HAHAH, THANKS EVERYONE WHO STUCK AROUND TILL THE END! LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! Talk to you later, and have a wonderful day!

Consult your doctor today if you have suffer mild or sever SRD(Smell Roses Disorder) Today, and see if Type C is right for you.

Cheers,
Jet

Well this is short. This pertains to my last post, but since it was so long, I didn't want this to get lost. A quote that I think I need to remind myself, especially in the morning is this one. 

"Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It is not philosophy. This is physics"
-Albert Einstein.

Woah... thats big! I mean there it is! You heard Albert! So get out of those lower emotions and raise you energy to what WANT you and your reality to be.

Revelation today! Yes, you can find success by sleeping ten hours a day. 

You-"But wahHHH? What do you mean JET??? 10 hours a day?? I'll BE A PILE OF LAZY AND TURN INTO A DRUNK ON THE STREET!!!"
Jet -"NOT IF YOU'RE HAPPY!!"

Let me back it back it up a bit. As I mentioned before, these journals will also serve as my personal notes to myself on the new things I learn about myself, art, and everything in life. The biggest problems i deal with right now is procrastination, and sleeping. And I constantly try to find solutions to fixing them, but nothing seems to work! And now i'm starting to think this is because of deeper underlying issue. And that is with happiness. I'm not happy. 

Something I learned about procrastination is that it comes from fear. The fear that whatever you have to do wont come out well, a fear of not doing as well as you want it, or know it could be.  The thought of work is so heavy that the easiest way out is to just get some form of entertainment! Before, my guilty pleasure was Starcraft. However, I've deleted that off of my computer about a month ago, cause it was getting out of hand. NOW IT'S FACEBOOK! I read all of those articles everyone posts, and just get lost. Mostly Science and politics. I love to know what's going on around the world. I love hearing about progress. Politics is usually the oppisite. It talks about the problems. Problems we need fixed. But what starts off as just one hour of reading, turns into a whole day wasted. And it goes back to that fear, running away. HOW DO I FIX THIS IMPULSIVE BEHAVIOR!? For me, i'm not so much afraid of not doing well as I am making things more complicated then it has to be. Meaning I set these outrageous goals that becomes like heavy weights on my head. I want my work to be PERFECT, THE BEST!! AND I'LL DO A TON OF THEM!!! The list of things to do become longer and longer, leaving me in a whirling daze and the best way out is escaping to entertainment. This spills over to sleep! I'm so in the zone with these pleasurable activities, I sleep SUPER late, so I end up having to wake up later! I don't just wake up later, I OVERSLEEP! Meaning more then 8 hours WHY?????? BECAUSE I KNOW I HAVE A LOT OF THINGS TO DO!!!! YOUTUBE, FREELANCE, PERSONAL ART, FRIENDS, FAMILY, FINANCES, GIRLFRIEND, LIFE..... I just wanna curl up in a ball, where I have noooooo worries in the world. DRIFT OFF INTO A DREAM LAND!! But then when i DOO wake up, the destructive cycle repeats itself, and gets worse! Because now I have MORE work then before! Now I'm playing catch up! Oi... Sure in the end, I get my work done. But not without a long drawn out battle. And many of you might be thinking, "life must be great for JET!! He's GOT IT ALL PLANNED OUT!" HAhaha, when really, it's not like that at all. I always feel like I'm running at 5-10% capacity. And it all just leaves me, well, drained and depressed ='[  NO WORRIES! Cause I've learned to do something that will help me along the way!!!!! YAYYYY!  And it was right in front of my eyes, well in my case, ears this WHOLE TIME. Fix it with being HAPPY WITH YOURSELF!!! "WAAHHH????"

Yeah, so what ever do I mean? 
I meditate ALOT! And it has done wonders for me. But I became so outcome oriented, I forgot what it was that helped me in the first place. That happy feeling that I got out of it began to fade in my second year of meditating(guided through earphones). Before, it use to feel so good, Almost to the point where I felt like there wass NO WORRIES IN THE WORLD! Yeah, I use to get that out of meditation. Of course  there are real world problems but mediation is all about focus and being in the moment. And one of the tricks of meditation are the "AFFIRMATIONS" you tell yourself. Affirmations are reinforcing positive thoughts yourself. Telling yourself(saying it out loud will help), things like, I am thankful, I am happy, I am forgiving, I am loving, I am wise, honest, strong, brave, successful!!!  ANYTHING positive!! The trick is to remind yourself, you really are great, and everything is and will be okay. Be in control of your state mind. Making happiness an option that you choose. I came to a point where, I lost track of the meaning of those words, and just go through the motions expecting a change to just happen, and not actually feel those words. Essentially, not putting in some intention/voluntary work behind the breath. Well how could I with the piles of work I've made for myself? That's RIGHT!! "I" made that pile. And really, that pile is ALL IN MY HEAD! And isn't very physical at all! Many problems we have are much smaller then we like to believe! So why not alleviate it by changing your mind about that burdensome pile? Like poof! GONE! NO MORE WORRIES! HAhaha and I don't mean, just fuck it all, sleep sleep sleep, and forget about everything I have to do.  Of course NOT!! But I CAN have the cake AND eat it TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Meaning, I can be in control of my state of mine be happy while dealing with all the problems/obstacles of life. For example, I can either do my laundry with a sad face and say, DAM CHORES, So tedius!!! OR I can do my laundry with a smiley face!^___^ "CLOTHES WILL BE CLEANER WHEN I"M DONE, YAYY!" Yes thats right. Changing the way you see things, is a choice.  The problems/tasks/obstacles are STILL THERE! But it's up to you wether you go through your days with a smile on your face or not. Those problems, are not in control of wether you smile or not, YOU ARE! 

"WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU GOING WITH ALL OF THIS JET?? JUST SPIT IT OUT!"
"OKAY OKAY"

IT'S JUST THAT! I'm procrastinating cause i'm depressed. I'm Depressed SO I PROCRASTINATE!!!  I wake up late and I know I have so much to do, and I'm behind, so I feel soo down so instead of getting up and kicking life in the ASS I avoid responsibilities AND GO BACK TO SLEEP! I'm not in the moment anymore. I'm not in control of my emotions. I'm too focused on the out come of things and not the process. I'm thinking about all the things I have to do constantly, and not stopping to just... breath... TAKE A BREATH...dig deep, and say. Everything IS okay Jet. It's not "WILL" be okay, IT REALLY "IS" OKAY! And genuinely believe it is. Unless you have terminal illness(which in someways you can still say it) Everything IS okay, because you know what?, fuck it, I SAID SO! ANd YOU CAN SAY IT TOO! SAY IT WITH ME *^*% it, IT'S OKAY! I'm okay! And that's what I learned, or re discovered. Remembering to believe in those affirmations. It may feel stupid, but you HAVE TO BELIEVE! Tell it to yourself. Say in third person. Say, Jet, everything is okay! AT LEAST FAKE IT until YOU MAKE IT! If thats what it takes, then DO IT! YOU ARE GREAT, YOUR ARE BRIGHT, YOU ARE LOVING, STRONG, FORGIVING, EMPATHETIC! You DESERVE IT. If you need to ball and cry, DO IT!! But get up and wipe those tears away, and say, It'll be alright! There is so much research that, optimism goes a long way. People who believe they can do something vs someone who believes that they can't do something,  ARE BOTH 100% correct! Let's say these two imaginary people never have made art in their lives. Well the person who said, they can, will, and the person who says, they can't will probably not. And if that person attempts with the "can't attitude", well they've already made up their mind, and anything they put down will look shitty, which will push them further from perusing art! The kid who said they can, drew the same exact thing, but instead, feels 110% better about his piece. He'll continue to grow in art. And he will love every moment of it. Positivity, optimism, is the same as a placebo working in your favor. Two people taking a placebo pill to fix a cold. The person that was healed faster had a stronger belief that it will work. A placebo really is just your mind and body's abilities to heal itself. I MEAN IT JUST MAKES SENSE! So how is this gonna help?? Well, just today, I noticed a increase of work, after doing a quick morning affirmation when I woke up. Told myself all those positive things to start and smiled the whole day. I noticed an increase in work, getting started wasn't like pulling teeth, and avoiding distracting things like FB and Youtube was MUCH easier cause I found the source of happiness from work. From doing work. From being productive and being okay with myself! And that leads to how sleeping 10hrs means success!!! WAHH???? 

"But you just said, don't sleep like a snorlax Jet?? I'm CONFUSED"

Okay, so tackle the problem of sleep. If you are like me, you don't like to wake up early and you have problems with going to sleep. So plan ahead! Give yourself room for error. NOT REAL ERROR! But, allow yourself what you need! So 2 things that I've learned about sleeping. 

1. I sleep late, cause I woke up late, and am too awake to go to sleep.
2. I wake up late, cause I went to sleep too late, and I'm too sleepy to wake up early!!

It a destructive never ending cycle of doom! BUT WAIT! WAIT 2 Ways to fix this!! YEAHH!! I CAN DO IT! 
1. You hate, HATE, HAaaaaaYYYTTEEE waking up early, BUT!!! You have a Little more control over what time you sleep then what time you wake up!! AHHHH If you can get the sleeping part done right, you can then wake up! So you have to go sleep at your designated early time. If that's 10pm it's 10pm. If it's 2am then it's 2am! You have to stick to sleeping at that time. Being able to wake up early, depends on your going to sleep earlier, ANNDD, KNOWING HOW MUCH TIME YOU NEED TO SLEEP!
2. For me, i use to always think I needed 7-8 hours, of sleep, because that's what all the science keep saying. BUT I KEEP WANTING TO SLEEP IN! On average it's anywhere from 8-11 hours of sleep. And BINGO! That's the solution! Give yourself room to over sleep! So if you need 9 hours of sleep, and want to wake up at 8 every morning, then that means, GO TO SLEEP AT 11 pm! THATS IT! That easy. And sleeping at 11pm is pretty dam reasonable, i mean, I remember as a kid, my curfew was 8-9 if I was LUCKY, 10!!!! Now that Im a freelancer and an adult, I am in charge of my own sleep. So I go to sleep at around 5am.... yeah poor. 
 
I read a new study showing, kids or teens need an average of 9hrs of sleep!!! Not 8, cause their brain is still developing etc. Well I'm a grown adult, SO WHY DO I STILL FEEL LIKE I NEED MORE SLEEP?? So much sleep? Well maybe it's cause I'm a creative, and with ahfd(attention hyper focus disorder) my brain uses A LOT of energy throughout the day and like a battery, it needs MORE time to recharge. It could be true or not, but for now, whatever the case may be. If can start sleeping at 11pm, and STICKING TO IT! THen MAYBE, i'll begin to , cut back on sleep, and wake up earlier, automatically! 

Reinforced with AFFIRMATIONS and a positive/optimistic attitude, It should make every goal I seek to accomplish a lot easier. Like going to sleep on time and getting to work when I have to. 

HOW DO I SOLVE PROCRASTINATION? Well you know one of the methods, being overall happier, optimistic, postive. Of course that can only go so far. Whats another way?? I mean a SILVER BULLET?? Well how do you eat an elephant? One piece at a time. BUt WAIT! YOU NEED TO FIND ALL THE LITTLE PIECES. Sometimes pieces can be broken up even smaller.
 
Here the steps!
#1. Stop making the project soooo big that even thinking about it hurts your head.
#2. Focus on the task by parts. INstead of the whole thing. ONe piece at a time, is much easier then thinking about the whole thing as a whole.

PIPELINE!
So hypothetically! What if you had to design 5 characters, WHAT DO YOU DO?? 
#1. don't think of the bigger picture. Thinking of it as a whole triggers immediately, oh man... thats a lot of work, i'm gonna hop on some game then get started 2hrs later, oh man... wait im hungry now. Maybe after I make lunch. Let's COOK something nice, cause I LOVE COOKING! 2hrs later O man, I gotta go potty! Okay lets get started, wait! Gotta check emails, always check emails!!! THAT"S IMPORTANT!!!! Wait what's going on on face book?2hrs later, i'm hungry again. Man it's late, I better go to bed... It's an endless cycle.
#2. all you have to do is make a rough draft! Simple, not the whole drawing. 
#3. Even better do thumbnails before rough draft. Piece of cake!! I CAN DO TTHAT YEAH ^___^ so you started the thumb moved on to roughs CLEANED IT, RENDERED IT!!!! COLOR ROUGHED IT! and finished the design YAYYYYY!!!!!
"You're the winner now Jet, how does it feel to finish your first character? "
"Well pretty good, I think I could use a break. How bout some fb, game, tv, organize computer, you know what??? I'll take a vacation! YEAH LET"S GO FLY AWAY! FAH FAH FAH AWAY FROM HEH! ^___^ but wait, why are we still on point #3"
"Well because you arn't done with the 4 other designs yet. ANd you now you wasted hella time taking a biggo break from work and gone fishen"
"... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

This is a problem that happens when I finish a drawing, or a task. YOu have to remember the game isn't over, TILL IT"S OVER! Now i have to muster up all that energy, to start up the NEXT task!! OH NO!~!!! Not the next one... I gotta start up my thumbs again, that means, opening up a new file, finding refs, labeling the ref folder, and searching internet. Let's just crawl back into the earth and forget any of this happened.... T___T 

"BUT WAIT JET THERES ANOTHER WAY!!"
"WAAAaaaaHHh??? O___O???"

Starting a new project isnt just the first drawing, or thumb, YOU CAN ALWAYS BREAK IT DOWN EVEN FURTHER! Wait, what did you say about refs? And labeling folders??? Thats A STAGE! Thats part of the elephant you forgot break down. EVERY STEP NEEDS TO BE BROKEN! Otherwise it'll feel like a bigger task then it really IS! 

###4. INCLUDE REFERENCE RESEARCH  and folder making as a step in the process. AVOIDING TOO MUCH REFERENCES! Prepare for that! Cause you might get swallowed into the internet. SO yeah, even before drawing thumbs, you can first make folders for your characterS! Label them. Refs, jpgs, finished, orginal psd/ms files. And that! Is an easy task. You don't even need know how to draw to DO THAT! ^___^ So technically this one is 3 and not 4 but I like to be dramatic.

#5 yes there is a 5. Don't start roughing and cleaning your character yet, WAHH?? which is faster? Building one car at a time in your garage, or making a factory and having an assembly line where MULTIPLE cars are made??? Easy, factory where many cars are made. So remember how finishing my first design made me take a vacation to the bahamas? Yeah, it's because my mind is done with working! What if you started the process on multiple characters?? THEN IT'LL FEEL LIKE YOU ARE NOT DONE! Plus, it'll feel SOOO much easier to jump into the next character/project, because you got everything set up.

#6 Make folders, label them,  and find refs, for ALL 5. In my case i'm currently working on 50 or so characters for a game, so I do them in batches of 5. Find refs for ALL FIVES FIRST! NO DRAWING, NO THUMBS! NONE OF THAT. JUST FOCUS ON THE EASIEST PART! Organizing the folders and finding refs. WHEW. When you've got all the folders prepped, and refs found, my god, it's such a breeze to jump into the next character. But why stop there?? Why not streamline all 5 thumbnails? Work on all the thumbs for all 5 first!

#7 Thumbnail, all 5 characters, like an assembly line for cars. NOW WE"RE TALKING! You are essentially starting them all, so it won't feel like you are done, and need to reward yourself so heavily,when you finished one. This is cause you've started many! It's now turned into working on MULTIPLE mini projects! Not one LARGE DIFFICULT TASK. But Multiple SMALL projects. Learning to eat an elephant one piece at a time, IS a skill. And this is my current break through that has shot my productivity through the roof, especially when everything else(being happy/affirmations) is combined. Starting all of those thumbs, means you've gotten a lot of thinking completed for the other characters so it'll be twice as easy to get started, and less burden/pressure on your brain! AHHHH!!!. Changing my whole idea about what it means to get started. Getting started IS THE HARDEST PART. But now!!! It it's no longer "o man, I gotta come up with a shiny new monster" NO! You already found all of your reference material AND you organized your folders, ANNNND, you got the pesky thumbnails done! Thumbnails really are the meat of the drawing, it's where you invent the overall, gesture idea of the character. When you get THAT DONE, you are pretty much half way done. So you get your thumb done, you are pretty much done. So again, making it sooo much easier to start, ANNDD to comprehend. 

#8 lastly, schedule your work, and week. Scheduling your work, really should come before everything else. Schedule your week, set a completion date. Break down your work into parts and stick to the schedule. How much are gonna work each day, and when should everything be done. If you are like me and a freelancer, time management is difficult. No mom, school, or job, telling you when to work. You have to figure that out yourself, and thats for another day. A great site for organizing work is, Trello.com. THey even have a checklist. You can also use google calendar. THere are plenty of programs out there that can help you with that. So let's list this off again.

1. Schedule 
2. ORganize folders and materials. 
3. Work on the beginning stage of multiple task.
4. Execute them one by one.

Breaks are always important, and can be split up after each point is completed, or however you feel is necessary.

AND THAT, is how I overcome the pressure of procrastination. This can apply to anything you want to accomplish in life. Breaking things into parts, to make it not just easier on you, but your mind. Because getting over the idea/comprehending is a difficult task. FOR ME anyway. And not just breaking down, but breaking down everything from pre production to scheduling. Cause if you are missing that piece of the puzzle, it'll feel like you are compensating for the missing pieces every time. 

I learned that when i'm more carefree and having fun and not worrying, my work tends to be the best! That's what I needed. I wasn't happy because of all of the pressure I've built for myself. Too much expectations became draining. Focus on what you can do NOW. eliminate the distractions the best you can, and focus on NOW! Did you know endorphins are released when you smile!?  Meaning the feel good chemicals in your brain that you get from pleasure like Sex, games, tv, food, laughter, exercise can also come from smiling. Look here if you don't believe me. www.psychologytoday.com/blog/c…;

Smiling is associated with happiness from a young age. Since infancy. It can be an involuntary reflex to something happy/funny. Or you know what? IT CAN BE DONE VOLUNTARILY. Meaning you can choose to smile. TRY IT! IT FEELS GOOD. You've had years of practice. I don't think many people play games, and watch comedies and Laugh with a straight face. Thats just...weird...and you might wanna get that checked. When you walk through the street and just SMILE, you'll start feeling good! The day is less cloudy, and people around you are less annoying. Don't let others or superficial things in life control your emotions. When you smile, they smile, and everyone wins. If they don't smile at you and look mad, well you know what? Im not gonna let some one else tell me how to feel, just cause THEY are having a bad day. So smile more often. Think of all the positive things you have in your life and  don't focus on anything else. Think of all the problems that YOU OVERCAME! Sure it might be hard at first, but you can always find something to be grateful for to help. You might have 2 hands where some don' have any. You might be healthy. Your eyes are working. Maybe you have one arm, and you are thankful you didn't lose both. Or you have food to eat. You have an internet CONNECTION! You have a bed to sleep in at night. Jeez thats a big one. Theres plenty to be thankful for. This will make you feel so much happier.  But mostly, You have to really love yourself, into being successful. And not necessarily big sucess. Be loving of every small itty bitty successes, and be proud of it. Wether that is wake up on time or putting your pen down and making your first mark. Hold on to that feeling until, all the little things turn into a biggo batch of balloons that lifts you off into the sky like that old dude in "UP." I've noticed a lot of successful people who always smile. And I always wondered, Did they smile as a result of their success????? Cause they accomplished so much? Or did they have the smile on their face before all of that? And was it their, "I CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING" attitude that did it? IONO??? Maybe a little of both? ^___^ . You hear successful people say it all the time, big time rapper once expressed, forgot his name, who made millions saying, he got everything, the girls, the mansion, the cars, but he wasn't happy. Why??? What could be missing? He said it was because he forgot who he was. His close friend family. Maybe this because he never found himself. Loved himself. Then there is the poor monk story, who had nothing but the robe over his back. Yet was the happiest mofo you ever did meet. 

If We can all just be a little more happy with ourselves, smile a little more everyday, we'll have less difficulty with life. Dealing with problems, finding solutions. That is why i've told myself recently, i'm not a failure for sleeping for 9-10 hours. Screw it, as long as there is a method to my madness(sleeping early and on time), I CAN SLEEP AS LONG AS I FREAGEN WANT! Because I accept the way I am, and by accepting who I am, that makes me happy. And happiness will help me reach my goals easier, including the goal of sleeping less. So what if that other artist is producing like 20 drawings a day, or that other lady only needs 4 hours of sleep. Who cares what they do. If I focus my attention on them, I'll be worrying myself to the grave and nothing will ever get done. So take a breath, relax, remind yourself, you are great, you can do it, and you deserve all of the loving energies this life has to offer. And you deserve to tell yourself you are proud of yourself. What would the deceased version tell you about your homework assignment you were stressing out about? Or the break up you had. Or the dog you lost? I know my dying old age self would tell myelf,  "hey Jet, it's okay man, you'll be fine. You are loved and life is good. Enjoy life, because it is short." Too short to be worried about everything in the world. Just relax, and focus on what's in front of you. One piece at a time. Slowly, surely. =)

*whew!* hope that helped some of you! 
I know that was a long one, and I don't expect anyone to read this to the end, but if you did, THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. These are some of the thoughts that float around my head daily, and unless I write it down, I know it'll just flutter way. So yeah! Thats how I find success by sleeping for 10 hours a DAY!~ Thanks and sleep tight BUTTOMUPPEEBUMBS!

Cheers,

So i was just taking a break to play some Starcraft. 3 vs 3 and I was teamed up with a toxic troll kid named Timmytwotoes who ran his mouth the entire match. As some of you may know, Star Craft have these multiplayer matches where you match up with random people in a multiplayer match up. And from time to time, a team mate can be more detrimental to your own team then the enemy because of their SHITTY ATTITUDE. To summarize the game, we won the match. It went a bit long, but we ended up winning. and guess who ranked the weakest at the end of the match. TIMMMYYYY!!!!! The WHOOLE MATCH, this child was name calling, ridiculing, and just being a plain ol pain in the ass. I have to admit though, there were times i could have done better, but  still we won, and I ranked second out of 6. He would run his mouth, saying it's mine and our other teamate's fault if we lose, we are noobs, congratulating the other teammate for kicking our ass. Funny thing was he kept on saying he was going to be ranked the best by 100Xs!!!! Hahaaha, so me and the other teammate played it cool, ignored his rant, and literally won the match.

So heres a little advice to punks who dog their own teamates.
1. You are not helping. You actually are making it worse. Try and encourage the team, and if you lose O WELL! I don't know how many times, i've said "Its Okay" to a teamate that felt like they underperformed. Who CARES!? It's JUST A GAME!
2. It's embarrassing. Especially when you send the message so the other teamates can read. They really dont care about why you are underperforming. If we are losing thats all that matters. Trying to say "oh IT ISNT MY FAULT, IT'S MY NOOB TEAMS FAULT" is like trying to switch teams at a sports game after a loss. Pathetic.
3. You don't have a game issue, you have a social problem. By being such a crybaby you are showing how fragile your mind is, and applies to real world situations. Making excuses, name calling, not taking responsibility for you actions, are all things we learn about as we grow. Because you are behind a screen doesnt absolve you of your weaknesses, it may at times make them worse. Rage quit gamers for example hahah.


Minimize the stress around you
This is an issue i've always wanted to speak out about, because it isn't just SC, it's life. SC serves as a great example/metaphor for this. There are times when you meet these type of people in work or social situations. I've learned through work experience a valuable lesson. Avoid these people when possible. Ask yourself this one question, is the stress really worth the money?? I learned to choose health over money. Fortunately,  I currently have options of choosing who to work for, and the clients i have are wonderful people, but there have been 2 or 3 jobs in the past where the person I worked for were just toxic. Being pleasant, reaaaaaalllly helps productivity. Being unpleasant, bossy, controlling, close minded, cynical, are things that can debilitate you and your work. It can nterfere with productivity in my experience up to 80% and times 100%, it just isn't worth it. I've been in tight positions before, and If i could go back, I would definitely remove myself from those positions. I mean once I litterally was working for free and the clent was sooooo disgustingly rude, I can't believe I went through all of that.... Don't get me wrong though, If the stress is from coping with the technical aspects of the project itself, I feel that there much growth and success to nbe had. For example, learning manga for the first time, or designing something you've never drawn before. This type of stress is the BEST kind. It means you are learning.  And if your client cool and you getting better at art, why not? Sometimes we can't be too picky. But if you dealing with unpleasant people your life, find ways to avoid them, because they may just be bring you down. Create your path, and make it a happy one, otherwise it isn't worth walking. =)

HEEEEYYY You Beautiful People! I seem to have done it again! I've thought up a storm that has kept awake for the past 2 hours! Hahah, hopefully this isn't gonna be like the last post(Book) Haha =P (Razz) So it's 6:40am now, and I woke up last i checked 4:30 am. I tried to stay in bed, but I just couldn't fall back asleep. Well actually the problem was, I didn't want to. You see, I have "Smell Roses Disorder"... And I think i've thunk myself out of the disorder. Yeah who knew. I cherish everything too long and TOO DEEPLY! And THAT, is a problem. WHAA??? What the smoken who? 

Yeah so that's why I'm up. You see, there are two types of people that I've encountered in this world. Well 3, and I'd like to get to that in a second! Cause I think thats where I am, yes, SUPER SAIYAN LEVEL 3! Let's call them TYPE A, B, and C.

(*warning, I am basing all of this on personal experiences and everything could be BS, depending on who you are. Both sides can experience one another's side of course, but I mean if it's 80% here, its 20% over there. *)

Type A. Person A is the type who goes through life watching movies, playing video games, enjoying themselves seemingly without a care in the world. They get up for work each day, hustling and bustling doing what they do then come home and enjoy their hobbies, wether that be cosplaying, watching their favorite youtuber or hanging out with friends so care free. If they are artists, they draw, draw, and draw as if the world around them didn't even exists. 34 hours a day and they couldn't care less if their house was one fire.I just need to draw some more (not me) Of course when it comes to personal matters, it's dramatic and its the end of the world for them. It could be their next exam paper or missing sock, that they are stressing about, it's the only thing that matters at that moment. Nothing else mattered except what was in front of them. I remember being like this at a very young age. Come to think of it, Type A has a very childlike personality. Most of us, as children, didn't have a care in the world! We ate, slept, pooped, watched dbz/pokemon, and did all over again the next day. Not much to worry about as kids cuz Bills were paid for, food was taken care of, and if you were like me, you DREW! These people, seem to not give a DAM about what goes on around the world. Watchign their tv shows or Collecting their favorite fan art action figurines! WhAT about All the politics and catastrophes going on around the world? These aren't all kids either! Meaning there are adults who still live this way. I mean they go through life just living life! HOW DARE THEY!? I mean what about all the poor people, all the destruction and chaos And diseases? You never know when you might not wake up the next day! I'll talk to some and they'll be oblivious to even major world events. I mean, were they living in a hole? This is where I come in. Because of all the problems going on, i'm always thankful for every day I have to live. I'm the guy who always say to people, and especially to myself, "Be thankful for life. Take a biggo breath of fresh air and stop to smell the roses!" WHY DONT YOU STOP TO SMELL THE ROSES! SweetYY, WHY ARN"T YOU SMELLING THEM DAM ROSES??!! DO YOU NOT KNOW I COULD DIE IN THE NEXT 10 MINUTES? (making my girlfriend feel guilty) This is where TYPE B comes in.

Type B. This person (although I haven't met many others like this, I'm sure they are there) Goes through life thinking deeply about the thoughts feelings and problems around the world. Constantly analyzing EVERYTHING! They can't enjoy A movie because they are too busy pointing out all the technical things in the movie, good or bad. When it comes to the world, they post a lot of world problems, AS WELL AS innovations! But mostly Problems, and stories that they feel may help the solution. But because not the majority of people care for it, they can feel quite a lone. It's as if no one cares! Others care more about the 3rd trailer release to Star Wars, Or puppies. I mean who doesn't like puppies (I DO!) They can't just walk through a park, beach, or drive on the freeway, without pointing out to person next to them how miraculous everything looks. LOOK AT THEM CLOUDS! DO YOU SEE THAT MOUNTAIN! O MAN A ROCK! WOW! Now THATS a ROCK! I mean they notice everything. In a way, it's child like too! Always pointing things out for everyone to see. WHY DON'T PEOPLE SEE? Are they ZOMBIES? PAY ATTENTION YOU GUYS! And when it comes to relationships, they are very sentimental. Very just over the top at times. Let's take a PICTURE. Let's film a video! Gotta cherish the moment! Living life as if they were going to die the next day!

This is me, Type B. I've calmed down on pointing things out. I had to find a balance, cause I understand it can be annoying. For the most part, when it comes to world issues, I pick and choose what to share, everything else I keep to myself. I've learned to really just say, whatevs! I got my own things to worry about, and so DO EVERYONE ELSE! But an aspect I can't let go is how I cherish each and every day and moment. *warning bout to get sappy* Every weekend I have my girlfriend come over and spend the night at my place. As far as I can remember, I can spend 2 to even 3 hours just stroking her hair, or face till I myself falls asleep. After about 8 years of this, she sleeps through it NO PROBLEM! Like a rock. If I fall asleep and wake up at some time in the night, I have to peck her on the fore head a couple of times, and stroke hair and all that other mushy stuff before falling back to sleep. But I have NOOOO problem doing this. I mean for one it feels nice to me, but mostly it's cause i'm doing my best to cherish the moment. Cause I think to myself, If I die, or she dies, I can say, I've loved her as much as I could. I'm sure most happy couples do this. But I'm not sure to the this extent. I remember the first 2 years we were together, I didn't miss more then 2 nights of singing to her. I MEAN I dont think i missed ANY! But to be sure, i'll say 2. I'll sing like 4 or 5 songs EVERY, SINGLE, NIGHT!!! This isn't just with her either! JET YOU'RE ARE CHEATER?! No NO! I don't mean like that, I mean, when I'm having a happy moment with a friend, or family, I will sometimes go blank and try and breath in the moment. If I'm out I'll spend time "BREATHING IN" the moment. TRYING SO HARD TO HOLD ON TO THE FEELING! It's come to the point where I think maybe, it's TOO MUCH! WHA??? CHERISH TOO MUCH???? Sure it's great to cherish the moment, but there comes a time, when it's tooOOo MUCH! And I think that's what happened this morning. 

This morning I felt a deep sorrow.... Yeah don't worry it's not bad. It happens sometimes when I wake up too early. I think it has something to do with the chemicals in the head, when its super early, and doesnt have all the juices flowing yet. I DONT KNOW OKAY? But i felt quite depressed. It's hard to pinpoint the problem but I mean I was soOOooOo freaken sad. Every type of sad thought would run through my head. Even trying to smile didn't help. I was on the verge of tears. O I remember! I started thinking about the year, and how fast time flew. How fleeting life is. I know many of you have felt this way, I'm sure everyone does. I was like "you mean, one day my GF will BE GONE? And I won't have this moment with her??? IT's okay! LET ME JUST INHALE HER SCALP!!!" (Nearly woke her ass up AHAHA) OR "MOMMA GONNA DIE SOMEDAY? DONT WORRY, I'LL TAKE HER OUT TO EAT ASAP! We'LL GO SHOPPING AND EAT AND IT'LL BE GREAT!" Or "I CAN DIE TOMMOROW?? Crap, but that'll be devastating to mom..."(Not so devastating to GF, JK !!IM JOKING! XP) That one reaaAAAaaLLy made me sad. I havn't been afraid of dying since a LOOONG time. What makes me sad is what would people who care about me feel. I'll be fine dead, but what about mom? So I said, I KNOW WHAT! I'll WRITE A GOOD BYE LETTER TO EVERYONE! And I'll put it in an easy place to find like my shoe box encase I Die! This way if I go, I'll have a way to say good bye. Wow... I mean what am I Saying?? This is REALLY DEPRESSING JEt! A GOOD BYE LETTER???? What the hell is going on here? DON"T YOU DARE WRITE THAT LETTER! Yeah happy hormones kick in a second don't worry. But this is what I mean, over thinking everything. Thinking too much can get you DEADED! Hahaha. So I began to think. Why am I saying all of this? Well I think it stemmed from me cherishing the moment TOO HARD! Not being more like TYPE A! Just enjoy THE MOMENT AND DON"T THINK TOO MUCH! ENJOY IT! Stop second thinking everything! It's as if everyone is watching the movie of life, and I'm the only one NOT watching the movie! I'm busy analyzing. And even WORSE, i watch the people sitting next to me. I watch the expression on everyone's faces in theater. I PEOPLE WATCH! Literally as well as metaphorically! Think about that. I literally do this in the movie! Whille people are watching the movie, my mind flutters away from time to time to everything else but the movie. But I do it in real LIFE too! I can't just go through life beating my drum and following the crowd. I'm the one who is constantly off beat cause I'm looking everywhere else except the parade. THERES A PARADE GOING ON AND I'M LOOKING AT THE TINSLE ON MY FIGURE, OR YOUR FORE HEAD! I think i'm trying to cherish the moment, but by doing this I'm not in the MOMENT! Being in the moment means ENJOYING THE PARADE OR MOVIE ! And sometimes, I think It's OKAY TO NOT GIVE A SHIT TO BE IN THE MOMEN! YES! THIS IS IT! This is what made me have that "AH HAH!" moment. Cause i thought "what happens when the movie ends? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PARADE IS OVER?? What were yOU doing that whole time?" I was looking at the tinsel on ground.

While everyone is out enjoying the basball game, or video game, you were caught up with ALL the things around it. While everyone was laughing at the dinner, you were busy "trying to cherish that fleeting moment" I had to remind myself. Moments are fleeting. And that's what makes them special. People don't live forever, and that is what makes life so special!!! BINGO! I've heard this before many times, and I've preached it too, but I had to do some reallllll thinking to truly appreciate this. Fleeting moments are special because they ARE FLEETING! It's not good to take things for granted of course, but its also not too good if you can't JUST ENJOY YOUR BOWL OF NOODLES WITHOUT TAKING MENTAL PICTURE OF EVERYTHING AROUND YOU! Cause while I was busy watching the people around me, I MISSED THE WHOLE DAM THING. This wonderful movie we call life. I remember a guru once stated, "Life is a play, and we are all merely actors"  (There is spiritual meaning behind but maybe I'll get into that another time.) SO PLAY THE ROLE YOU WERE GIVEN! Sometimes it's okay to play these dramatic parts of life. And worry about that exam paper like theres no tommorow! Yeah you'll get over it, but you are dealing with it now, SO DEAL WITH IT However yuo feel, even it means crying in the corner until the due date! Or have your arguements with people about your favorite cartoon as if it's the most matter of fact thing. Wether you get over it or not is besides the point, RIGHT NOW WHAT MATTERS IS GOKU BEATS SUPER MAN EVERWAY YOU PUT IT DAMMIT! To forget EVERYTHING ELSE and be completely engrossed/lost in the moments we live. To just be okay with living. To be caught up in the fleeting problems we have. "Play the roles of the play" Get caught up in the guilty pleasures like video games, movies, action figures, or whatever you are into. Say, FUCK YOU WORLD! I'm gonna worry about me and forget everything else existed! Obviously this comes with keeping in the back of you mind that I'm thankful for every moment I have to live and for all the wonderful people I know. But while I cosplay as batman, I'm batman, and that's what im about! If you are one who get's lost, and is a hermit and ONLY lives like an OTAKU and NEVER stops to take a deep breath and be thankful  to breath another breath of precious air, I highly suggest you do. I mean THINK ABOUT IT! THIS AIR IS FREE! Just breath, theres plenty to go around. Wow what an amazing feeling. Maybe you should stop and smell the roses. You see that's an example of the things I would tell myself all the time!(I know I'm such a hippy) But I'm at the point where Im like, DAMMIT JET THEYRE BREATHING ALREADY!! WHERE ARE THE FUCKEN ROSES, IF THATLL SHUT YOU UP!!! So if you are like me, maybe it's time to say, YOU SMELlED ENOUGH ROSES! THE FLORIST WANTS YOU OUT OF THE GARDEN! Basically point is, What is the point of life, if you arn't living it. Don't live life as if you were gonna die every. Because how are you gonna get through the day if you are busy smelling every dam FLOWER!? DAM IM CRAZY!!

Balance is good. TYPE C is a balance of both. Being able to enjoy life while acknowledging and cherishing the moments without getting too lost in the act of cherishing. Being able to say you know what? It's okay to be selfish and indulge. BUT NOT TOO SELFISH OF COURSE. You can have your cake and eat it too. Watch a movie and get lost in it! I might glance at the people around me, but why did I come to see this movie we call life. To experience it! That's one thing I ask myself, if your dying self could talk to you today what would he say about this matter/ this whole ordeal. And I'm pretty sure he'd say. 

"LIVE IT YOU IDIOT! Cause while you were busy trying to inhale the moments you were living, everyone else was busy LIVING IT!" 

I think that pretty much summed up everything I was thinking. Writing is such a pain cause I have to make sure it all makes sense. HAHAH, THANKS EVERYONE WHO STUCK AROUND TILL THE END! LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! Talk to you later, and have a wonderful day!

Consult your doctor today if you have suffer mild or sever SRD(Smell Roses Disorder) Today, and see if Type C is right for you.

Cheers,
Jet

Hey Jet, I don't know if you'll have the time to read this but I thought I might ask. I really love your's and Sycra's streams and have learned a lot from them. I wanted to ask ( But I don't have a you tube account.) If you were to never have gone to college, what would you have done differently for an education?
 I always feel like a jerk and a kill joy to ask online pros art questions, I don't have any RL community near me or art friends, and I don't have a place to get constant critiques. I know you guys always hype on drawing all the time, but I feel I'm doing just that but lack the community, motivation, and direction colleges and classes have.
   If you had to start over, what would you do to become a pro in your field and improve with the resources we have now?
Thank you!
