Finally! After a year of searching, I finally have a job again.

Last year in July, WisPACT had no further work for me in terms of scanning, renaming, and sorting their client files into their database. The work was of no trouble to me at all; just simply sit around and let the work come to me. However, the job turned out to be too for me. It was expected to be done in two to three years, but I got the project done in over one year. There was no additional work for me of that type, so I had to leave.

So I scourged around, seeing what jobs were available. I wanted something of the “cashier” position, just for some customer service. Sadly, I have no such experience, and I wasn’t sure of any other positions that would suit me best. I applied to Woodman’s as a cashier at first, then I tried again as a bagger. The latter job was the job I got, but it will suit me fine once I get used to it.

It was a lot tougher than I had originally anticipated; sorting the groceries, and making sure that they do not become damaged, all at breakneck pace had caught me quite off guard—including a strained back. However, the pay rate for the weekend to fit into the college schedule should be worth the while. I hope that I get the hang of it eventually, maybe gain enough seniority to get a better position and hours too. But it will be a start for now.

I am an inexperienced artist in drawing. I know there are rules in art about perspective, color, shading, and lighting. But I need help in how to hold the pencil correctly, how to move it, just that. But I am exceeding good in Photoshop, with some photomanipulation and I am just getting started in 3D Maya.

Regrettably, I don’t really spend a lot of time drawing, and I sometimes suffer writer’s block. I have so many good ideas that I want to share with others, but to bring them forth is another thing. Even if the commissions are at a low price, I could buy 2-10 commissions in finding the right people who would be interested.

To my friends whom I have paid, you don’t have to give me anything. As a matter of fact, I’d rather be paying *you* for the commissions. To everybody else, any points you can give me would be appreciated. This is my first point donation request, so I am very nervous at this point.

Nice. And I can see your point on this matter.

EDIT: Something just occurred to me. Have you seen Star Wars before?
culdeefan4 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes I have. but I saw only one in Theaters in the late 1990's
though. I'm more of a Star Trek Fan to be Honest.

BTW. What are you're Memories of Thomas the tank engine if
you have watch the show?

Series 1-5.  They were decent, but I prefer the books from where they came from.

From what I’m told, it sounds like you saw Episode I: The Phantom Menace. You should see the original trilogy. It’s not only the most popular part of the saga, but the source on which most of the series is based on included some of the Expanded Universe (material outside of Episodes I-VI) and generally regarded as the strongest point in the story—the climax if you will. 

Let me put it this way: if I were to compare Star Wars to Thomas, I could say that when the world switched over to diesel engines over steam, the steam engines are the last survivors of their era, much like some of the Jedi when Palpatine took over the Republic and declared himself Emperor. The Rebel Alliance fights to restore the Republic to its era of peace and freedom to the galaxy, but they are forced underground while they fight the Empire. In a funny sense, as long as there is steam on Sodor, the glory days of the past survive there. See what I mean?
