Cousin: Apathetic Silence
December 19 2013
I managed to get my yahoo account back; I really ought to switch this account's email service provider... I think I did but it didn't push through. Regardless, I'm sorry for not having been replying to all PMs and Reviews. As I mentioned from my last update last April of this year...
Since my father died, I stopped schooling and had to look for a job. Nailed an interview and proud to be the only none college graduate to be accepted to. Shifts change monthly, whether it's morning, afternoon or graveyard. Sometimes I have to go to work during offs when there's a lack of manpower.
I'm currently in my vacation leave in order to get ready to move out of our current home and into a new place as soon as December ends. So I will say this now: I cannot update anymore. One reason is due to the lack of motivation for the Naruto (and SasuSaku) fandom which I used to have. It happens, just not to everybody, but I've met and seen some people from this fandom who have done so.
Another reason is because I'm the only one my mother has left to depend on to make a living, that pretty much sums up why I barely have enough time. I just let myself focus on work and hope for an increase or raise when they're pleased with my performance, plus tackling on other sideline jobs for additional income. It's tough here in the Philippines when you're an undergraduate, so I consider myself lucky to land a job that pays on time.
Next is since my father's death, I've been more inclined to spend more time with the people I love and care for since I have regretted not giving most of my free time to my dad. And with my mom's age and ailments, I'm preparing for the worst, so I devote my free time with her and of course, my real life friends, relatives included.
I sincerely apologize for crushing your hopes and expectations with my stories and would like to hope that in due time, you will all understand. You may feel free to bash me, insult me, criticize me and call me what you want. But please take into consideration that words will also hurt regardless of what people say or how they respond to it. Please remember that we each live a different life - some of us have it easy, some have it tough, others are just living by. I'm a mix of all three, but there will be times wherein a day has just gone wrong and being told of such hurtful words make it worse.
Other than that, I wish you all a safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Please pray for the Yolanda/Haiyan victims of my countrymen.
Hey guys. I've been receiving a lot of PMs and reviews that ask how I'm doing, if I'm okay, and if I have any plans on updating. So let's answer those here to save you guys the trouble of having to send me a message. Though it makes me smile seeing how there are still people who read my stories and visit my page from time to time to check, I didn't want you guys to have to go here just to ask how I'm doing, but again, it's appreciated :)
So, hi, I'm doing okay so far. Had to stop going to school to finish my studies since my dad died last March 2012. I've been working but that job is confidential (not illegal though) so that's all I'll say. My shift changes monthly too, so sometimes I work during the morning shift, sometimes afternoon til night, and of course, the ever famous graveyard shift.
I've been keeping up to date with some new anime series and have been watching a few shows too like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. As for the Naruto fandom though, I've been... on hiatus with it for more than a year I guess; I just get some tidbits and info from friends who post their opinion on latest chapters and whatnot.
I still continue to draw, trying to improve on it with what little free time I have, and I've stuck to original fiction and characters these days, so you could say I'm one of those writers/artists who once became known at the very least because of SasuSaku, and suddenly goes "ninja" and does original works.
Updates on fics? I'm still trying but I end up scrapping most of what I write since like I said, the fandom/hype is just not there anymore and it only makes my writing and story turn to crap. I won't be promising when there will be an update, nor can I say if I'll just stop altogether because sometimes, inspiration knocks on your door and you just have to write.
I've been more open to criticism too, but not if it's regarding my old stories - especially if it's on grammar and spelling. So yes, do forgive me if I end up snapping or something because I really don't take it lightly when it comes to old works. Plus I usually have a bad day so my mood can be unpredictable - just saying in advance since I know everyone experiences a rough day too.
And that's about it in a nutshell. If you have any questions though, just send me a PM and I'll get to it as soon as I can :)
Oh and news on my cousin -- I don't think he'll be updating; like me, his work shift changes daily too, plus he earns to provide for his mom and sister, so yeah, the free time he has, he sleeps or enjoys life instead... :p
