I thought I'd share the good news (and get the dumb tag journal out of the way) and tell you guys about how I've been offered a job by Target! :excited: revamp... again.

As most of you know, I am currently driving a shuttle for a hotel, early mornings starting 5am for 40 hours a week. The hours are hard and boring, messing up my sleep schedule and effing up my health so that I can sit around waiting for someone to ask for a ride. Although I don't really mind the work much, it's just not the best thing for me, and I'd like a job that'll keep me active and is closer to home, not to mention in a regular schedule so that I'll get my sleep and have the energy to, say, make art. I had originally applied to a HyVee opening up soon, which would have paid me $13 an hour to be a clerk, but they ultimately chose someone else over me. So I went for the next best thing -- I'm going to be working in several departments in Target to make ends meet. My schedule will probably be all over the place for a while, so please forgive me if my artwork is slow coming. I will try to make things for my Patreon in the meantime and have some things in mind for my original story. As of yet, I don't have my orientation date, but I will be starting in less than two weeks.

Hope everyone is doing well. Enjoy the rest of your weekends. :purplebubbletea:

~ My Testimony ~
For the first 17 years of my life, I was a proud atheist. I was the kind of person who wanted to find my destiny and be a good person, without any sort of faith. I believed there was too much evil going on in the world for there to be a "god", and that most if not all Christians were judgmental, self-righteous hypocrites. But when I lost my dad at age 15 in a freak accident, my world came apart, and I questioned my beliefs in my desperation, briefly wondering if maybe there was a god that would help me through a world without my father. One year later, I became good friends with someone from out-of-state, who had a lot in common with me. Over the course of our friendship, I eventually learned that he believed in God, and grew curious; he wasn't crazy or fake at all, like most other Christians, I thought. One day, knowing my views and wanting to give me an inside perspective, he invited me to his church. I decided I'd go just for his sake. He demonstrated genuine concern towards my reasoning, one time even sitting out of a service to talk to me about what made his belief in God a solid thing. When I told him I was still skeptical, he asked to have a heart-to-heart chat, and so I told him what had happened to my family. It turned out, as he shared, that his story was shockingly similar to mine. With some other things happening that day which seemed no coincidence (people in Haiti praising God on the news after losing everything, him showing me a song on Youtube about God giving me a destiny without him really knowing its significance), I felt I had no reason not to believe in God anymore. He then told me he felt that God wanted him to pray for me. And I did something I never thought I'd ever do before -- I accepted.

That was the start of a journey that got me where I am today. I did two years of urban missions training and prophetic outreach in the community called Frogtown in Saint Paul, and am now working towards moving out on my own. I hope someday soon to start making money off my artwork and bringing glory to God through that, and whatever else He may have in store for me.
