I've Started 2D Animation!

Image
To accompany my shirt ventures, I've been researching and practicing 2D animations so I can incorporate them into my YouTube channel.


I've been noticing a bit that my video retention on my YouTube channel isn't so hot. I've made some interesting videos, controversial, and others just random and I always seem to get less than 50% retention more often than not. Of course my videos aren't top quality, I sometimes mumble and I don't feel as confident speaking into a camera, also with my low subscriber base. This all includes the camera quality of my videos, which kind of blows, to put it frankly but I have the power to make it better.

The Why Meme T-Shirt

Image
I'm moving up in the world, lol. So I've decided to open up an account on SpreadShirt so I can design some cool t-shirts. I have this one as a temporary placement for my store (its just a simple impact meme, nothing to it). I call it:

This design basically sums up life, lol. Anyways, I've been looking further into image manipulation and designing Chibi's and Manga T-shirts as sales and exposure being to increase. Not only here for this blog but also my YouTube Channel (Luis Rosales).
I've been using a lot of GIMP for image manipulation, but I recently have gotten my hands on Toon Boom so I can begin some animations, and Manga Designs. I know this why meme t shirt is probably the most simple sad piece you've ever seen, but yeah. I like it... Don't judge me >:D. As time goes on I will be designing a lot more shirts, which you'll be able to find at my general store (Anarcho-Ese) on Spread Shirt.
Anyways thanks for reading, share the love and I'll b…

Coming Out Of The Closet To My Parents

Image
You know you never realize how petty and simple accomplishments can really change a persons life. Especially when its one we've emotionally been stuck on that we've kept from our parents. Where we are too afraid or worried about their opinions so we don't commit.

Coming out of the closet my parents was very similar.

Comcast Xfinity Wifi Internet Down, And Slow Bandwith!

For the past 2 days (and including months before) I've been having some internet troubles, for some reason I had an 'Invalid IP Configuration' warning, which kept my internet limited and not able to connect to the public wifi pass I was using from Xfinity.

I tried to disable and reenable my WiFi device. Rebooted my computer. I even went to the command module and did an 'ipconfig/release' and 'ipconfig/renew'
Nothing really seemed to work but then I contacted Xfinity (Comcast, since I was using their hotspot pass). They walked me through a couple things and tried troubleshooting with me, but nothing seemed to work. So eventually they just offered a refund for my limited connectivity (which included the two days where I didn't have internet), and I said sure. Which today the internet does seem to work fine, maybe they restarted their routers :P, lol. I'll be reconnected again soon, I'm using a free hour pass that they offer, so I know its connecte…

Anarchist and Police

Image
I've always had my oppositions with police, not necessarily on a personal level, but overall. In my view the police force in any nation is completely unjustified. The laws that they enforce, even more so unjustified. I have no problem with someone protecting another person, of course not. I have a problem with someone saving someone else from themselves, if that makes any sense.

Autopilot Life

I've been thinking a lot lately, not necessarily in positive thoughts or negative ones. I feel like my mind is in limbo, trying to figure out whether I should pack up my things and work extremely hard or if I should party hardy, and fuck the bullshit (of course not forgetting my duties). My mind is stuck on pause, as I'm going throughout my day on autopilot pretty much. Engaging in few conversations with friends, and then actually being enthused in others. My only escapes have been me playing piano, and reading, generally watching YouTube videos, and yet I feel discouraged to leave my routine life. Not that I do anything wrong, but I want some excitement, I want some pleasure. 

Obviously working in school provides neither, but maybe I should concentrate on school heavily? Forget the friends, and concentrate on my closest friendships around me and do study group sessions and what not. I'm not entirely sure.
Of course, I'm the kind of guy that likes to go out, enjoy the …

A New Modelling Gig? Whaaa-?

Image
I pretty much have some epic exciting news. A good friend of mine, Anisa Bahiyyih, recently came from China and was thinking about becoming a model, and I pretty much said to 'go for it'. We've been talking about starting up a blog for her modeling, but everything is in the planning phase for right now. I'll be around to help her manage her blog, and work everything out.

Born To Be A Pianist

Image
I've been playing piano, I want to say, since about 8 or 9 years old. My sister one day was playing with her keyboard and I got really curious so I decided to join her, she taught me some basic scales and taught me a little bit about music theory. I soaked it up completely like a sponge and then one day I told my sister, hey look at this! Needless to say she was surprised at how well I played her piano, even 'til this day she is very proud of my piano skills, and I'm very grateful of her teaching me.

Cinco De Mayo The Slurred Holiday

Image
Happy day after star wars day everyone! Even though most people have no idea what this day even means except for Mexicans and people who pretend to know what it means like flip flopping politicians that just want to be "one with the people". Yes, Obama apparently its more than acceptable to talk about American immigration on a day that was based around the Mexican battle of Puebla against French invaders, I mean.... I'm not Mexican...

Six Months of My Hometown

Image
After living for majority of my life near the "happiest place on earth", Disney World, I was feeling quite empty in the Orlando, FL metropolitan. Since I've lost my close relationships, broke years of friendships, and made some bad decisions in where I grew up, I decided to move back to my hometown here in Hartford, CT. Hopefully, looking for a more positive outlook of the future. Little did I know things haven't changed much over here since my early life.


May The 4th Be With You... Meesa Says Kill Jar Jar

Image
Ahh yes, May 4th the celebratory day of Star Wars nerdgasms, cosplayers jizzing all over their light-sabers, and then some. With the upcoming film by J. J. Abrams (I really want to say Jar Jar Abrams)... Star Wars: The Force Awakens will likely spur up some nostalgia within our middle aged mothers and grandmothers as they cosplay princess Leia as we all graciously face palm, and walk away in embarrassment.

Exercises For Pectus Excavatum and Flared Ribs

Image
With all the main issues with Pectus Excavatum we've all had personal issues with flared ribs. A lot of us feel discouraged, or inferior when it comes to it. Perhaps having a great deal of anxiety over our very own appearance. On a side note, I play piano, and my name is Luis Rosales. I too have Pectus Excavatum and know that it has affected me and my social progression within my teen years. If you do not suffer from Pectus Excavatum, then these tips, later on, will probably help you with your endeavors as well!

What is Pectus Excavatum?Pectus Excavatum is known as "Funnel Chest" and "Concave Chest" is a breastbone deformity. The breastbone, or sternum, caves into the chest causing respiratory issues. Reported systems generally are fatigue, chest pains, and abnormally faster heart rates. With this comes self-consciousness, social anxiety, and a tad bit of self-pity.

How To Fix Pe…

A Renewed Blog

After a fair attempt over at Weebly, things seemed to be getting quite repetitive with having to recreate my page and comments over and over again, there was no template I could save and reuse (I was using the free version of course). I've been blogging for quite a while and things have not really caught on, but soon enough. I have confidence in this blog and will be looking further into Google Domains in a couple years.

Now, welcome to my Personal blog.... for like the 3rd time.
