Before starting to write this blog, I came to realize that the last few blogs I've talked about dealt a lot with my life or just life in general. I guess that's my subconscious slipping in some form about me wanting to have a life. Never the less this is going to be a continuation of my shorter blogs as I'm still in vacation mode.
A taste of success
Let me preface by saying that last month, and the beginning of this month have been my favorite parts of this year. I have not only been able to relax in a way that I haven't done for years, but I have done many things to improve my mental health, personal life and have had some very exciting news about my work. Let me quickly touch upon these areas.
When it comes to my mental health, without getting into the nitty gritty and details of my life. I've had problems saying what's on my mind for certain things for one reason or another. None of the topics I spoke about were particularly racey, but they always caused a bit of hesitation on my end, which made me feel like I was bottled up- or at least my feelings about certain things were bottled up. This past month I have began making the necessary changes in my life so I feel unafraid to express my feelings (of course it doesn't mean I'll just blurt out my first impression or won't take a diplomatic approach to what I'm feeling). I have to say, it feel- Ls liberating and amazing to be able to do this.
When it comes to my personal life, the truth is I haven't had much due to a lot of work I did in the past, along with all of the animation work I did which takes up an incredible amount of time. Luckily for me, I was able to get a library of work done that has freed me to be more social. How has this manifested? Well, I was able to see Dave Chappelle, one of if not my favorite comedians ever- live. Yup, it was an amazing experience to be able to see him live, especially since that was the first time I really went to see any celebrity for anything. That's not all though as I have been able to go out and meet a ton, and I mean a TON of new people. I'm always looking forward to meeting new people and starting new relationships, that's always been an exciting part about life for me, and for the longest time I was unable to do so. Fortunately for me, I have been able to jump back into the saddle and it feels great!
Lastly, the exciting news. So if you follow me you know that a music video I worked on called 'Just' was released a few weeks ago. At the time of this post, the video has about 60,000 views. The exciting part is that, the rapper, Ka and myself were propositioned by the creative director of adult swim so that they can show the video to a wider audience on TV. Basically, my art will be on FREAKING TV! That's something I've always dreamed about and it's finally going to happen. When is it going to happen?
Sunday September 18 @ 1:30am or so. Give or take.
The specifics will be sent to me soon, and I'll probably put up a status on twitter about it, so if you're interested in seeing the video on tv live, you should follow me on twitter. As a bonus, after the video is on tv, it will be put on the adult swim Facebook page for everybody to see as well. Talk about a double whammy! Ok I promise not to use that word again, but you can imagine just how happy i am and the kind of doors that will open for me because of this opportunity.
All in all it's been an amazing few weeks and I really hope to keep the momentum going for the rest of the year. Thanks for reading and I'll see you next time!
Oh and P.S.
