Things at my workplace have been…turbulent for me, to say the least. Some days are awesome, but others not. And I got tired of it.

So I gave my bosses a one-day notice and I’m packing up my stuff to head home today.

It’s a sudden shift, I admit. I originally planned to stay here at the amusement park until the season was over. But I feel that it’s for the better for my emotional and mental health if I left now instead of prolonging my stay.

I’m still job-hunting, but I feel like there’s a little less pressure now, for some strange reason. Probably because I’m headed home, where I know I’ll have a place to stay while I job-hunt. Do you know how much panic comes when you realize that any day you could be homeless? NOW I KNOW THAT PANIC and I want to avoid it as much as possible. Thankfully that edge is off for now.

Also, you may have noticed that there haven’t been any new sketches of original characters lately.

That’s because I’m cancelling the Daily Character Challenge.

The project was originally intended for me to try out new styles and such, but I got caught up in other projects, most notably prepping the launch of my webcomic. Plus, the Challenge wasn’t getting the feedback I was expecting. So I decided to cancel it in favor of pursuing other avenues that I know will pay off in the long run.

This includes the webcomic. Here’s a banner image I whipped up recently:

This is Jamie Roberts, the main lead in the story. She’s currently disguising herself as a boy to go to military school, so she might become a hero like her role model, Queen Norsa of Corith.

Of course, she created the name Jamie Roberts so she could create a new identity for herself, and also to hide from her parents who might search for her to get her back home, which is the LAST place she wants to be. Her two friends, Thomas and Daniel, keep her gender a secret so she can still attend the school.

There will be more to come, so keep your eyes peeled. :D I’ll post again once I’ve settled back home and a few other things.

In the meantime, Don’t Forget to Be Awesome!
