Yes. Today is my birthday. And what’s a blog without a birthday entry? There are no pictures with this one, but it is something worth writing about.

A lot has gone on since my last entry. I’ve been getting weary at times with juggling work, work after work, cleaning up the place and stuff going on outside of work and work after work. I even got tired at times when I wasn’t doing much of anything.

This last Tuesday, I decided to go part-time at my current job to focus on my art career. I wish I could spell this out more eloquently, but news is news no matter how well written it is. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to pursue art and animation, but I was always too chicken to make a run at it for fear of not being able to support myself. But the anxiety of not being able to use my God-given talents and the lack of joy from my current job began to weigh on me. The issue became not money, but trust. Do I really listen when I’m told to “not worry about [my] life?” Can I trust that the Great Shepherd will take care of His flock? For some, this may sound like recklessness, but for me, it’s logical. If I’m serious about my pursuit of art and animation, I need to do it sooner or later. At this stage in life, sooner seems like a good time.

The rest of the year is going to get interesting as there will be a lot of growth , penny-pinching, and hard work ahead. I won’t say that I’ll be successful, and I don’t know how good (or bad) I will get, but at least I can say that would’ve tried. Anyways, I hope 26 turns out to be a good year.
