  • @Sephirothskr 2014-12-18 08:47:52 Hey Sephirothskr I know its rough. I've been through many relationships myself. For now I've decided to focus on work and my hobbies. My goal is to get my bills paid off and then once I have those done by next year. Maybe focus on getting some computer certs. I figure if I find someone great. If not just continue doing what makes me happy in life. There are times I do wish I had a girlfriend but then I remember all the headaches I had with my ex's in the past.

    You're still young. Enjoy life. Enjoy editing you seem like you're really into it and have a lot of talent. Continue doing stuff you enjoy and eventually you'll find the right person.

  • How editing has changed. wow... 2014-12-14 10:12:40 So I just installed my new program. I"m using Sony Vegas Pro 12. It is amazing. Now I see how effects have become so much easier compared to as the past. I'm not saying it is any less impressive, because you still need to know how to use them. It's just the time it would take to make effects or input them in an AMV has been drastically cut.

    The DVD encoding process has gotten a lot longer though. Encoding each anime by episode instead of a full DVD. Plus editing with lossless AVI instead of a script file in the program. It's nearly 8 GB or more for a 25 minute episode. That is crazy. A 60 episode series is nearly a half a TB. Not to mention it will takes days, days to encode every episode of the series if you wanted to do that.

    It's changed a lot but I think its going to be awesome.

  • New Editing Program on its way... 2014-12-11 13:17:06 I'll be getting my new editing program on the 18th. So in about a week I'll be able to start experimenting with new techiniques, at least to me. Maybe I'll be able to turn out videos a little quicker than editing on 1999 technology.

    I'm so looking forward to it. As long as I can get the stuff to work right.

  • New source of light... 2014-12-10 09:29:20 Hey guys,

    So after talking with a friend and my father yesterday, I have found a new source of light. I can feel happy about myself and my skills. I feel motivated again and that's a good start.

    I may actually start working on my next project eventhough I don't have my new editing equipment yet.

    Anyways I'm looking forward to it.

    See you all around,

  • Wish I could just be happy... 2014-12-08 09:27:39 Hey guys,

    I just don't know what to do anymore. It's been a while since I've felt happy or relaxed enough outside of a convention. I've just been really unhappy with my work, and feeling useless. I just don't know what to do for a job. I've been doing the IT work for 5 years now. Before that I was in the Air National Guard full time for 2 years and 5 years as a guardsman while working Target. Before that I was a sales rep for the Baltimore Sun and Maryland Gazette Newspaper. I was miserable with all of these jobs except the sales rep position. However being a sales rep does not pay the bills. I'm not sure if there is a job that I can qualify for as I really have not diversed out of the computer career field. I know if I had instructions and I followed them step by step I could do any job. However I willn't be able to go beyond what the people have already taught me because I'm not skilled in it and I'm just doing it from memorization.

    Sorry for the long entry here. I just don't know how much longer I can keep this up. I'm not really good at anything, and as an AMV Editor I was okay at the best. I have fun making them, but I'll probably never create stuff like the editors of today. It's all about have fun and creating what you want. Right?

    Anyways take care everyone.
