Yep, as you can pretty much immediately guess by the journal title, I'm still not feeling very well. While my father has almost fully recovered...I'm still caught in the grips of a cold. It's really been kicking my ass these past few days. I still have a pretty sore throat, and I feel cold and achy all over. My chest is sore, and periodically I've been coughing and hacking up green phlegmy gunk (disgusting, I know)...You pretty much know what that's like, I don't need to go into really graphic detail, do I...? I've been sleeping on and off the past few days, but it seems I haven't really gotten any better...

I don't know if I have a really weak immune system or what, but whenever I get sick it seems to take an unusually long time for my body to fight it off. Seeing as I haven't really felt any better this past week, I've got an appointment with the doctor's really early tomorrow morning. Hopefully they can give me something that might help me get over this faster...Though evidently, I've got to be really careful with what medicines I actually TAKE...As I have been on Prozac for the past year for anxiety and stress related reasons, there are apparently a LOT of medicines I'm not supposed to take lest they react badly with each other...

Here's hoping I can finally fight this damn cold off. I HATE being sick! :(

Still feeling pretty crappy. Throat is still sore and I feel cold and achy all over. Hoping I get over this soon, because this illness is kicking my ass right now :(
I want to start this journal off by saying congratulations to the Denver Broncos for winning the 50th Super Bowl. I was really hoping the Panthers would pull it off-in fact, I felt pretty sure they would win the game based on the year they had-but they just plain got outplayed tonight by the Broncos. The better team definitely won tonight! It's a bummer seeing your team lose, but oh well, I'm not going to dwell on that. There's always next year. :iconthe-waxbadger:, hope you enjoy the home team's big win-it's certainly been a long time since they've won the Super Bowl, and, well, it's certainly redemption for the disastrous loss to Seattle two years ago! :) (And like you hoped, Peyton Manning got to go out on top!)

I am also sorry to say...I haven't been feeling very well today. My father's come down with a sour throat and is coughing a lot...well, it is that time of year when the cold and flu tends to spread around. He's had it for a few days, and unsurprisingly, I seem to have caught it as well as I woke up this morning with a soar, scratchy throat and just felt pretty cold overall. So today I've pretty much spent most of the day lying in bed, not really exerting myself and eating rather lightly. I hate being sick, but sometimes you can't really do anything about that, you know...Hopefully it's nothing serious and I'll feel better in a few days (I hope the same for my father, as well)...but it means the next few days are going to be pretty crummy, to say the least. Still, I think-so far-this has been a better year than last one was!

...Except for the fact that I'm still not really ready to write anything (and being that I'm sick, of course that means I probably won't be writing another chapter of a story for a while). I do hope to get back to writing a bit more regularly than the last couple years...but again, I can't make any guarantees of that. However, I haven't posted any new deviations so far this year...well, other than new journals (why exactly do journals now count as deviations again?). I do hope to have a few new things to upload this month, however...I plan to put up the 1953 Indy 500 collage soon (I left off at 1952 a few months ago), and I hope to have a few new screencaps and maybe some more webcam images in the weeks to come! So do keep your eyes peeled :)

...and I'm already absolutely sick of seeing political ads and hearing about the elections everywhere I go. Have I mentioned I hate US election years? Because I do...This is gonna be a long several months prior to the Presidential election later this year...

Well, we're already into February, the second month of the year. Damn, January is already over? That was fast...before I know it, this whole year is going to go by in a flash like last year...I guess when you're not accomplishing much with your life or not really anticipating anything big, time has a tendency to go by quickly like that. Well, so far, I suppose I can say one month into the year that this has been a better year than last year...Of course it's only one month into the year and there are a full 11 months to go (and an extra day, too!), so a lot could still happen to me this year...But I hope not. If I can just have a quiet and peaceful year compared to how crummy last year was, I'll be happy :)

Unfortunately I still have not gotten around to writing anything yet this year. I do want to get back to writing "Another Family Secret"...But I must admit I just have not felt in much of a creative mood lately. I just haven't really felt like writing much of anything to date this year, nor have I really done a lot of thinking for my own stories. I feel like I've lost my writing spark some time ago and ever since I've stopped writing as prolifically as I once did. I also must admit, I don't quite feel as passionate about the Raccoons lately as I was a few years back when I wrote two full-length stories in under a year. I still like the show, don't get me wrong (and of course, I'll always be Ralph and Melissa's #1 fan :D ;)), but I haven't watched very many episodes of it lately nor have I thought about it a whole lot in recent times (I have the episode files on the computer so I could watch them anytime I want...I just haven't lately, really). I do plan to try to be a bit more prolific in writing this year, but I sadly cannot guarantee I will be...That of course doesn't mean I'm going to stop writing Raccoons stories-not at all! It just means it could be a while before you see anything new from me...I have to feel in the right mood to write, y'know. Try forcing it when you don't really feel like it, and you'll churn out a real clunker :(

In other news...Well, I'm not much of a football fan, but it isn't every year your home team has a shot to win the big game, and with Super Bowl Sunday coming up this weekend, I might as well go ahead and say: Go Carolina Panthers! :D (With apologies to my friend from Colorado, :iconthe-waxbadger:, who will doubtless be pulling for Denver. No offense, and I do hope the Broncos put up a good fight, but I think this is the Panthers' year)

Yes, as you probably know, today marks the 30th anniversary of the disastrous end of the space shuttle Challenger. Just a little over a minute after taking off from Cape Canaveral, the shuttle exploded and disintegrated (an O-ring joint failed in one of the rocket boosters-due to the cold temperatures-and the external fuel tank exploded), and the seven astronauts aboard the spacecraft were killed. It's something that will forever be etched into the minds of people the world over...

Obviously I can't say I remember the Challenger's demise, seeing as I was a little over six years away from being born (though I'm sure some of you out there are old enough to remember it, or possibly remember seeing it live on TV). My mother lived in Hawaii at the time (as she was stationed there in the Navy back in 1986), and remembers that she was at her work in the back room watching morning soap operas on the TV when a co-worker rushed in yelling that the shuttle exploded. Like I said, I don't remember the Challenger (I do remember the Columbia disaster...I was...just shy of 10 back then), but having (of course) seen the famous news coverage footage showing the shuttle's destruction, I can say that it's pretty much etched in the back of my mind too, even if I wasn't around when it actually happened. Couldn't begin to imagine what it would've been like witnessing it live on TV or up close in person...

Dick Scobee, Michael Smith, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, Ron McNair (a fellow South Carolinian), Gregory Jarvis, Christa McAuliffe...It's been 30 years since their deaths, but may they rest in peace. Braver men and women than someone like me could ever be. Takes a lot of courage to travel into space when so many little things can go wrong...

A few little random factoids about me:
Birthday: April 1, 1992 (I really AM an April Fool's Day joke!)
Birthplace: Oakland Naval Hospital, Oakland, CA (I just looked it up and it no longer exists. Huh.)
Hometown: Visalia, CA
Current residence: Somewhereland, SC (will not reveal real town name)
Where would I ideally like to live: Somewhere in Virginia (I've been through there before. Some really beautiful country there! What can I say, I'm a fool for the country (sorry Foghat))

I am a mysterious enigma of the Internet...

I am a strange human being indeed. My three main interests are cartoons, classic rock, and motorsports. I told you I was weird.

I'm a semi-accomplished writer. Still trying to work on getting better...

Just one note: Although I appreciate positive feedback on my stories, please, do not request me to write anything for you. Due to my past experience with requests, I do NOT accept them under any circumstances. I MAY take ideas and suggestions to be used WITHIN stories, but if you request me to write a specific story for you, I will say no, no matter how nicely you ask me to do it for you. Really, I feel more comfortable writing what I want to write over what other people might want me to write. I am also willing to accept constructive criticism of my stories, but any and all flames of my stories will be removed. I really do not wish to read those.

Also I'm named after...Bryan Adams. I feel ashamed...

I could be doing a lot better personally; to put it mildly I've had quite a bad last year. Lost both my grandparents within nine months of each other, got to see my mother's family in the process of imploding firsthand, and had my home state get hammered by floods just a few weeks ago. Yep, things could be a lot better! :(

I've only just started getting back to writing Raccoons stories again; all this drama in my life has really messed around with my head and has really kept me from writing much for the better part of a year. I'm now trying to work on my stories by myself; I haven't been able to get in touch with my proofreader :iconkobebabeef: for quite a while now so in his absence I've decided to proofread my own work. Which is a bit of a problem since I'm not great at proofreading my work, but I guess I'll have to get adjusted!

By the way, how are things on your end? I haven't heard from you in a long time!

I'm doing ok. Been preoccupied most of this year with social activities, so I haven't been very productive with my art. Hopefully I can find more time in the near future.

This probably won't tell you stuff you didn't know, but just in case you're interested, here's a Did You Know Voice Acting on Thomas and Friends.

I think it's actually kind of funny you linked me to this considering I literally just wrote a scene in my current Raccoons story where Michael and one of his little friends were watching a Thomas episode! :lol:

Yeah, I will say that in early US Ringo-narrated episodes, you can definitely tell where he re-recorded lines for the US versions. They really stand out compared to the rest of the lines; he sounds more...expressive, in the new lines, I must say :D

And I actually remember seeing that Robot Chicken episode where Daniel Radcliffe voiced Thomas. Something about Thomas getting hijacked by terrorists and TFC/Sir Topham Hatt going all badass and saving the day or something...I can't really remember, I haven't watched that show in a while :D
