Hey guys, sorry I've been really quiet the past few weeks. It was on purpose, and I apologize.
Losing my job back in late October hit me way harder than I thought it would. I don't know if it's that I needed time to grieve the loss of my team, that the IP I was working on has an eccentric fanbase in which I was stalked, and in one case alerted all my old coworkers to a journal post where I discussed my depression, my husband's and of course my macrophilia. Hell, maybe it's just because I'm not on a game project right now? I don't know what it is, I just know I had a few bad weeks with potential employers jerking me around, I've been extra bitter about my joblessness recently, and I needed to just run away for a bit and catch my breath. I feel so immature and selfish even saying it, but the world was feeling unbearably unfair and cruel, so I needed to hide away and recharge for a bit. I haven't even had an empty inbox since February...of last year. I think my body's been running on fumes for a while, but my mind hasn't realized it yet.
I know not having a job is one of the main causes of my grief. Having financial security takes away a lot of worry, and in general, having a job helped me keep a healthy work and life schedule as possible. My health has gotten worse, I gained back 10lbs, commissions have been on pause, my whole schedule is just a mess. I'm constantly scrambling between personal projects, keeping up with follow up e-mails, work searches, worksearch events, the con, life/family drama...and of course sleeping..a lot. I just hate it. I'm generally an enthusiastic, happy person. I hate being depressed, and I know the only thing keeping me from that is work. I thought it might just be me, but only one person in the entire company has found full time work since. It's really hard out there...I've been applying out of field, hell, even out in Los Angeles. I don't want to move, but a Jit without a purpose is a useless piece of trash. I need a job asap.
I'm hoping with this journal I could maybe reach someone could properly connect me. Preferably in NYC, but I could do Los Angeles. I'm looking specifically to work in games (PC/console/mobile), that's where my experience lays. My strengths are in 3D Texturing, Concept/Illustration work, UI and Pixel Art. I can also 3D model, rig and animate (2D/3D). If you or someone you know is hiring or is looking to build a game company and needs a team (I got people!...just need funding lol), then let me know! This is my last ditch effort, hopefully someone knows someone *sob*Size Con Updates
