Over the years, my facebook account has acquired many friends. More like acquaintances. Some I do not know how they got there. For most of them, they all have one thing in common: they will not talk to me of their own free will. There is no out of the blue message on my phone like, "hey, how are you?" I see them online and try to talk, they don't want to. They just ignore. I'm sure they're thinking, "O crap, not him again."

There's this girl close to my age who is friends with me on facebook, but we hardly know each other. I've last tried to talk to her on her birthday, which to my surprise she actually responded. That was the first time she talked to me since roughly 08! Now I see her online and I'm afraid to write to her via chat, seeing the history of our conversations which is really sad.

My part-Siamese cat Bubba passed away, from complications of a stroke, today at around 10:30 a.m. He died on his own, in the care of vets. He was kept in their care over the week since Monday.
 
I've been taking care of him all this year, giving him two pills daily which helped his mobility. He had suffered a stroke and it affected his mobility. There was one point on February 14 that we thought he had to be put down, because he could not move at all. My dad and I dug a hole thinking we would have to put Bubba down that Monday. That Monday came and he was back to functioning, on his feet, and ready to eat. There were several times when I thought we would lose him, but they were false alarms.

My parents and I went to the vet's today thinking he'd be put down, but the vet said that Bubba had died earlier. His eyes were closed. He was curled up like he was sleeping. My dad and I buried Bubba in the hole we had dug back in February. There is a new maple tree growing next to the grave.

It's the perfect sedan. Sleek. Stylish. It screams "Luxury." Gold exterior body finish. Four bright front headlights and a vertical silver grill. Long and elegant. It handles turns like a charm. Built for interstates with clear open road, cruising at high speed.

But if you are unable to pursue open road, then it's also perfect for getting behind cars who are going the speed limit, dogging their tails, and honking at them like a total jerk. Perfect for zooming past the car whose tail you dogged closely for at least three miles upon the first opportunity to get around them.

Ha, look at him. There's no way he could afford what you're driving. Never mind that you made him mad. Never mind that you're going at least ten to fifteen miles over the speed limit. Go faster. You know you want to.

Leave the speed limit for the slow, for the weak, for the poor sissies afraid of getting pulled over. If you can afford this car's lease and six month car insurance payment, like I know you can, then a ticket is nothing.

Once every few months I am visited by the Grim Reality. It tells me that what I'm doing to seek profit and a livelihood will either be useless or have a high risk of failure with no immediate monetary gain. In the past I would listen to the Grim Reality, panic, and switch to one of two options. I would either search the old list of employers who have historically turned me down or go to another hopeful yet similar scenario I was in before; one with high risk of failure. Yet as I would pull away from the useless goal, the dream of succeeding in it still haunted me.

The concept of creating illustrations will never go away. I draw out my ideas for writing, but the actual process of drawing a simple four panel comic takes longer than a daily comic deadline demands. I was drawing the comic with graphite, pen and paper and only editing digitally. I realize now that I was going about it all wrong. I should have used larger size paper rather than letter or legal size.

Having put aside the comic idea for now, I've been writing, or at least attempting to write, a novel. To help the moral of writing a novel, my family has purchased books on how to write and successfully publish a book. On one side it has shown me how to develop believable characters and plot that isn't so cliche it's boring.

On the other side, the process of developing characters has changed how I've been writing. It has virtually brought the ongoing process of the draft to a screeching halt. It's as if I've had to overhaul what I've already done.

Most recently, I have found a flaw in my philosophy of work ethic: I cannot have multiple passions of equal strength. I must make a decision and sacrifice a dream that still clings to me.
