Hello everyone, Joseph here...

Today through my night of staying up all night tonight to report to work tomorrow night, I thought I'd make a new Journal. This Journal will detail on what's next for my Gallery, my expectations for this year, and to review my First Year here.

*** Overview of my 1st Year of operations ***

This year was... meh. I enjoyed working it out and moving on here, but I got DISTRACTED TOO MANY TIMES... Blame all that on last year's Poke'Mon 20th Anniversary... I've done WAY TOO MUCH Game Playing on Y Version, Omega Ruby, and the new Moon Version. And on each game, I've been really hunting for Shiny Poke'Mon. And finally on each game... all 3 of them... I GOT CAUGHT THEM ALL! All 721 in Y and OR, and all 301 in Moon!!! Now... I NEED to STOP PLAYING... and get back to work here. I even had personal problems with personal cases of depression, and loss of inspiration. Then in between the times, I've been on the part of taking care of my mom before, during, and after when she had both of her knees replaced from surgery. And on top of that, finally resolving my Job Issues, but then having to do a new case of Sleep Patterns.

So, my first year in my new gallery --- Overall 2016 Year of Operations... Ranking myself...... "Rank: LAZY BUM!!! :star-empty:" "If you want to be what you want to be... GET BACK TO WORK!!! No Excuses, No Buts... Butts are for Smokers!!!"

My Ranking System: (Based on a Rating of up to "6 Stars")

LAZY BUM!!! :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty:
SLACKER!! :star: :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty:

*** Next from J Dragon Studios ***

When I had Ranked myself with NO STARS :star-empty:, and with all the reports of everything going on... I then had a surge in my brain to realize... "None of us are getting any younger." So because of that, I plan on giving it all I've got this year. I want to make myself VERY BUSY in both my galleries here and at :icondragontamer272:. This time I do have many plans, and I want to work my way to get to them this year. So to put it simply... no more screwing around.

Up next: Many Random pieces I had planned in multiple kinds of tool and papers. Later on this week, I'd like to find some Scratchboard, and I'm going to fully clean up and organize my tools and equipment of all the things I have, and finally use them all.

Then more and In Progress Concepts of new Original Things by me.

*** My Personal Expectations of 2017 ***

I'm planning on things that I want to do this year, aside from more work here of course.

* Be FINALLY Organized and up in Full Operations for my Studio.
* Be open at both of my Galleries here and at :icondragontamer272: for certain pieces will be Exclusive to one and or the other one.
*** We have another Video Game Franchise Anniversary... and I plan on doing A LOT of work based on it... that being the... "30th Anniversary of... MEGA MAN"
*** Do ALL the things that are on my New Years Resolutions

All in all, this is all the time I have for this time, and I'll see you all on the next one. Thanks for looking. I promise that I will give it all I've got this year, unlike last year. Until then...
