I Love dA!


As you might have noticed (if anyone cared) I have been pretty inactive of late. This has been because of a variety of reasons.

One of the big things that happened was that I had a car accident and wrote my car off.

Front doesn't look too bad then you see the back....

Apart from some bruises and shock I was okay and thankfully no one else was involved. The result was that this has caused me a lot of stress and a bit of debt as I needed to get another car. However I did get a car I do like:

I have started to call it 'Nero' after Saber/Extra :XD:

The other topic that has been causing me distress has been work. I don't want to go into details on a public site, but after being there 10 years, it is no longer enjoyable, I am getting treated pretty poorly with little support and the management of the firm is disappointing. Sadly because of the debt and state of the economy it is unlikely I will be able to find another job and I am not even sure this is the career I am going to stick to.

Personally, there have also been quite a few hits that have affected me as well so I can't say it has been a very good last six months or so. It has been very hard for me to find any enjoyment or motivation to do any photography or cosplay at all.

With the debt, getting time off work difficult and being so uninspired I am having a break from cosplay, photography and out of state conventions for the next little while. It will be the fist time in nine years I haven't been to Manifest and eight I haven't been to AVCon. There is a small chance of going to Main Animania and I will still be at Brisbane conventions but I have really needed a break. Hopefully after a rest I will be reinvigorated as I do have some plans and ideas I still really want to do.

As a start I have created a Facebook fanpage called Floatyman Inc.… I would really appreciate if people Liked it :)

Saying that, I have felt pretty isolated and exiled so don't really know what I want to do or where I fit into the community anymore. We will see what happens after a break and if I am up to getting back into it.

Steal My Heart Not by Bianka

A bit of 'return the favour' or 'payback' here, whichever way you want to look at it :XD: monsoonlotus featured me in one of her journals recently picking some of  my uploads and some others have uploaded . She is a wonderful cosplayer, great friend and is always ready to support me. We also have very similar interests so come up with crazy ideas and plans that hopefully one day will come to be. :heart:

I noticed you were missing... When I come online I drop by your page to see if there's been any movement *isnotacrazystalkerIpromise*
Was this accident in T'bar per chance?? <__<
People here just can't drive!! D:
But it's good to know you're okay from it :3

Will have to drag you out sometime and feast on sushi! :D
Floatyman Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012
:hug: Thanks and I don't mind you stalking ;) :XD:

Not in T'bar, was at Blacksoil, between the fixed speed camera and the BP :(

Only way I get out of late is if someone drags me sadly ^^; So that would be good

NoooOOOoooOOOooooOOoooooooo! :"( the poor car! I'm glad you're okay!
Have you started looking for a new job? Coz there are heaps out there, I mean, I personally couldn't get one of the ones I wanted coz I have zero experience, but you have 10+ years of awesomeness behind you, I totally have no idea why anyone wouldn't hire you! Got any big competitors you can join up with just to flip off the current job? YOU CAN DO IT!! WE BELIEVE IN YOOOUUUUU!!!
And I understand, but it still makes me sad you won't be at Manifest for my 21st birthday ;_; I'll take lots of photos so you can look at all the epic cosplayers and be like "woooaaahhhhh~!"
Sound good?
GOOD! :D JUST SIT BACK AND CHILLAX FOR A WHILE~ and when you come back you'll be all sparkly and new! :D
Floatyman Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
Yeah I really liked that car :(
Have looked around for a new job but very few in my field :( Plus even though I have 10+ years experience it is doing odd jobs, not really specialized in anything :(
I am sad I won't be at your 21st :( I am sad you won't be at my 30th :XD: I look forward to seeing the photos ^^
