So my last journal was back in June of 2014....HOLY...WHERE IN THE WORLD HAVE I BEEN?!
Simple answer: life.
Detailed answer: *takes a deep breath*
Through out the summer I was working at my work's summer camp, mostly working with kids from a local women and children's shelter. It was an amazing experience and I really got attached to those kids. We had so much fun and I was even breaking through to a bunch of them. However that had to end.
After that I attended Sac Anime Summer 2014 and reconnected with a lot of old friends. Things were starting to look up, until later that same month. As September started I ended up straining my back. I was limited on my job and had some stubborn recovery time About mid September I fell into a deep depression. At first I tried my damned hardest to push it back to the back of my mind as I have done before, fight through it. But that didn't work. Stress of my job and outside events made it worse. I was crying every night. I was in hysterics, not eating, I shut out everyone who tried to help. I retreated within myself. I even had thoughts of suicide.
In October, I had a minor anxiety attack at work. My bosses where well aware by then of my mental state.
As months passed my boss and I began clashing heads, to a point where I was sure I was going to be fired. Luckily I'm still hired. And I pushed through my emotional break down.
At the end of December I decided to make some changes. I finally decided to fully pursue my photography career. I went back to Sac Anime in January and did several photo shoots with cosplayers. And...I got asked to do photo shoots for the next one September. I already have 11 lined up and booked. This is actually happening! I have a Facebook page now; Romotography.
So yeah that's what's been going on.
