Journal Entry: Mon Sep 8, 2014, 9:45 PM
Been a long while since my last journal entry, so I thought I shed a little light on what's going on.

Art wise, I've started becoming a little active again, which is a BIG plus for me. For a little over two years, I've been struggling with artist & writer's block, finding myself stuck with what to do each time. Still have a long way to go, but I'm hoping come the remainder of the year, artist & writer's block will finally be broken.

On the job hunting front, still no luck & more than enough times I've been discouraged. While I am hopeful that someday (hopefully soon), I will find that job, but it also cause me to think about which education & career path I ultimately have to decide in the future. Currently, I am greatly considering going back to school, either for a Master's Degree or something else. I know talked about it in a few other entries before, but it's really starting to get to me as the thought of being jobless is weighing heavily on my mind right now.

With that said, sorry for dumping my personal ramblings on to you guys like that. However, it kind of leads me to the next thing I plan on announcing either this weekend or early next weekend. I decided to start taking art commissions, mostly so I can earn some needed money. I will make a post & journal entry real soon detailing which commissions I offer, prices, & terms of use. Also hopefully before the year is over, I plan on having a virtual yard sale as I have an abundance of stuff I either don't need anymore or have too much of. Unlike the commissions, I'm not sure when the yard sale will be posted, but I'm going to make it my goal to start selling sometime this year.

Anyway, long story short, been busy with art and writing stuff, no luck with job front so far, plan on taking commissions and putting together a virtual yard sale.

And before I go, a friend of mine is currently open for commissions. Feel free to check her out whenever you can. Her account is here :iconcelestrialdarkmoon:.

Dear RaynesGem. My name is Dragonking17 and I was wondering if you might allow be to use you Derpy Muffin Hugging Button picture for the basis of a picture that I wish to create with my Oc, Derpy, and Dinky. From all of the pictures I have seen, yours is the only one that looks perfect and all I need is, like I said, a basis with a pony hugging a muffin. I will of course mention that you are the original creator and send you a copy of the picture when I am finished. Please write back soon and thank you for your time.

Hi, sorry that it took so long to write back. As for the basis, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and do it, but be sure to leave proper credit.
