I'm the type of person who lives to experiment with different mediums and types of art, so although I draw a lot of chibis and comics, I also do some pixel work, photography, Flash (still work in progress), textiles, and other things.

So 2015 is upon us already. About goddamn time. And yet a mere 15 hours into the new year I find myself with quite a dilemma.

WARNING: This is a long journal. If you don't give a shit, you may stop reading here and go pet your puppy or check Facebook or something instead.

So a couple of days ago, my grandma got an infection in her eye after getting a routine treatment for her macular degeneration. Her life's not ebbing away like my grandad was about the same time 3 years ago, but my mum is really worried and going up to be with her all the same. Don't know when, but it'll probably be within the next couple of days. Anyway, not important.

My dad, just about 15 minutes ago, asked me if mum had spoken to me yet about going up there (far north Queensland). On elaborating, it turns out that there's a proposition being made to me to go and stay with grandma for a couple of months, being emotional support more than anything.

Normally I'm all for any opportunity for me to gain independence, but this idea makes me nervous.

If you aren't familiar with Australia's geography, the land has two points with a big square-ish gap at the northern end, and Queensland occupies the eastern point, with the city grandma lives in being pretty close to this northern point. I live in the ACT, a small island floating in the great sea that is the NSW about three hours away from the south-eastern coastline. Also, Australia is fucking huge. These two points are literally thousands of kilometres away from each other. Accepting this proposal means I'll be whisked far away from everything and everyone that I know.

Nothing's set in stone and I don't even know any specific details, but if it's going ahead it'd happen in the next couple of weeks. I just... I really don't know what to do. Helping my grandma is the right and decent thing to do, but if I say yes then I'll find myself almost totally isolated. Yeah I'll be surrounded by members of my extended family, but I won't get to hang out with my friends anytime I want to. Not to mention that even though my job gives only the tiniest and most unreliable amount of income, not being able to go to work means I don't get to earn my own money. I might be compensated financially and may be eligible for carer payments but somehow it just doesn't sound the same.

Sooo yeah. Maybe when I talk it out more I might be able to decide. But 3 months is a long time and there are lots of things I'm going to miss. I really need to think, but for now just getting this out there helps.

Hmm.

Hi. I'm your run of the mill agender agnostic 20-year old. I have concentration and commitment issues and I play too many video games. I draw things. I love comedy and anybody who can make me laugh. And this ID is much longer than it should be.

I'm a O41-C25-E12-A1-N60 Big Five!! That says so much about me, doesn't it u_u

Also yes I know my username is Japanese but don't judge me on it. And please don't ask what my real name is.

By the way, I have a Skype too, but I won't share it with anybody unless they're close friends.

And just so we're clear...
I only watch people whose art I really like. I do not do watchbacks. My standards are too high for me to just watch anybody.
I will not donate points if asked. I'm saving my points for commissions, not for handing out to randoms.
I will not look through yours or someone else's gallery, or give faves, simply as a favour or if asked.
I will not object to thanking for faves or watches, but I'll tell you in advance: You're welcome. It really isn't necessary to thank me, and while you think you're being polite, gradually it clutters up my page.
I will not do journal tags when asked to do them. If I wish to waste my time on that bullshit, I'll do it when I damn well want to. And if you won't take no for an answer, a week or so on my block list may be enough to change your mind.

Sorry to sound so negative, but some people won't take a hint.
Also, be aware that I don't receive notifications for llama badges. I don't mind if you give them to me, but I don't return them :meow:

Is it just me, or are you a bitch? (Normally I wouldn't ve written this, but I am pissed off, and when I'm pissed, I direct my anger towards anything.)
