I may be back into the world of steady work soon. I've been doing alright overall, but it looks like I've found a good opportunity and I'm getting everything in order to pursue it to the fullest. And hopefully that means I'll be able to start commissioning music and working seriously on the game without being constantly bothered about how my life isn't up to certain other expectations. I've done a lot of work on story and art, and while most of it isn't good for an in game asset, I've refined my digital art in ways I wanted to but was not able to while in school. Even better, I know how to make custom sprites now, and I have connections with a whole lot of people I didn't know in the past. Things are coming together.
Having a little more money on hand will help immensely as well, so I'm looking forward to having my life on track again. It was quite a jump off the tracks there, and sometimes I wondered when I'd land. Things are looking good right now though, so I'm pretty excited to be moving in good directions.
