Sorry for not updating this thing enough. Hope everybody’s doing alright.
Life-wise, things are okayish here. Put a deposit down for a new apartment, so I’ll be moving in about a month, so I’m excited about that. Current place though is putting me in a financial bind - manageable, just overwhelming. Since I didn’t get a written notice to vacate in far enough in advance, they’re charging me a remittance fee - 80% of my current monthly rate, so that puts a damper on things. Hopefully there’s a chance I can get this mess resolved, but if not, hey, c’est la vie.
On a few lighter notes, I've started picking up guitar again after the greater part of two years. Needless to say, it's going to take a while of practicing to get back to my previous skill level, but it'll happen again. I also got to save a box turtle today. Little (or rather pretty big) guy was wondering across the apartment office parking lot when I drove by it. I park nearby, pick it up and carry it to a nearby body of water, setting it down by the shallow end. It peeks its head out of its shell and takes off like a rocket into the water - my good deed for the day.
Art-wise, I still don’t feel I’m at the skill level I’d like to be. It’s especially bad since my output has dwindled to maybe two or so pics a year
, more if I’m lucky, and even then they’re more like simple sketches. I’m wondering though if I should post practice and progress sketches just to show what I’m doing. (Would anyone like to see that as a regular thing? Let me know.
) I’ve also noticed my own five-year anniversary coming up in about nine days. I can’t believe it’s been that long already. Feels like only yesterday I made an account here. For those who stuck around for this long, thank you so so much. And thank you for your patience with my lack of artwork. I really do miss drawing and I really wish I can get my passion back. Well, hopefully I can get it right one of these days. Maybe I can even give doing commissions a try.
I guess that’s it for now. Hope to keep more in touch with everyone.
Until next journal, bye for now.
