Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know where I'm at in my writing/drawing "life". So far, my personal life is going good, it hasn't been too hectic like before, but I'm starting to lose that happiness in my job. Some of you may know that I work in the IT department for a candle company. What I do specifically is fix people's computers, printers, phones, and troubleshoot any other technical issues they may have. Up until February, I was happy with my job. I got to help people, make their day easier, and I saw that they were grateful when I did get their problem solved.
But during February, that all changed. I had to deal with a racist son of a gun supervisor (who's not even my supervisor, but works in the same area as I do) who tried to pull an elaborate scheme to get me fired. He said things behind my back, and went the extra mile to make my life miserable in the workplace. The only reason I still have my job is because I was doing my job under extreme circumstances, and my boss is the best boss in the whole world. He fought for me too! 90% of my department was gone on a business trip, leaving me and another co-worker to deal with all the problems in the company. Long story short, I have my job because I took matters into my own hands, went to the HR department, and told them what was going on. Even though I didn't quit, he still got to me. He made me lose that happiness that I had, and almost made me quit my job. I was getting everything ready to go. I didn't want to put with this if that was permanent. So I've gone back to drawing to take the edge off, and I personally think I've been improving! What do you guys think? Before I thought helping people was going to be the best job ever, and don't get me wrong, it is! But for me, I no longer find the interest in helping people who look down on me just because I'm hispanic and young. Sure, I'm not as knowledgeable as the others, but I have more determination to prove them wrong. That's why I'm still at my job. To prove to that racist that I can handle whatever he dishes out, and I can stand on my own two feet. No one should ever feel inferior to someone else, it's prejudice and its wrong.
Sorry about that, but I just had to let you know what was going on in my life. So now I'm looking into improving my drawing and writing on my free time. I know where my passion is, and its in drawing and writing. I know I'm not the best, but I'm willing and wanting to know how I can improve myself. I'd love to one day work in comics, and I have a fire now that I didn't before. Thanks to that guy, I know what I want to do in life. And its to be happy. To enjoy what I do. To work in my passion.
