So, my laptop was damaged fatally, and its motherboard has to be replaced. Hope I can afford its timely repair. It's being serviced now, so hopefully that can get sorted out. Still, if y'all wish to assist me with it, please PM me.
Now onto more serious matters.
You may also notice my lack of activity over the past six months. No, I have not died and moved on, and I am definitely not running away from the crowd (especially considering my backlog, both paid commissions and personal projects alike). Thing is, I've been hamstrung by my circumstances as of late.
I have recently graduated (yay), which marks the end of my university days and the start of my 3,840 hours of apprenticeship before I can apply for architectural licensure. However, the company I am currently under employ has been, let's just say, severely damaging to my free time and to my welfare.
Under risk of getting found out here, I am going to take the time to say that I am severely underpaid and overworked (think PHP 350*/day, for easily 52+ hours of work a week). Couple to that Manila's appalling traffic conditions and I usually end up home late into the evening, battered from the evening commute. The immense pressures of the work environment I'm in also puts a damper on my creative ability.
I'm trying to find a workaround for my current situation, so please, bear with my inactivity, ayt?
On another note, holy crap, 20,000 views?
*PHP 350.00 translates to about USD 7.50 per 8-hour workday, or USD 0.94/hr. Minimum wage in Manila is PHP 481.00 a day.
