I'm trying to remember how to write posts about myself on here. Hold on, you guys, this may take a couple of tries. I'm currently at work, but I'm taking a break at the moment. Oh god, I've been drawing playfields for five and a half hours. I need to rest these eyes sometimes, dang.

I'm not resting them right now though! No!

Humn. Life has been pretty good lately? I'm not sure where to really start, to be honest. I won't be going to school this semester because I want to focus on my new job and save up money, but I'll have to start paying my student loan off from CSUN. I don't mind, once that's paid off I'll be pretty debt free and that's something to live for.

I am thinking of going to the Design Concept Academy. It'll either be this fall semester or next semester, it really depends on how my finances look like. Now that I have money I am a little fickle about spending it (beyond mochas. God, I need to let up on the mochas. I say that as I sip one... )

I went to an art gallery showing this weekend with friends.
Drove around Alhambra.
Drove around Pasadena

I'm thinking we should go to the beach soon? The beach sounds nice, doesn't it? I feel I just don't know how to relax lately, so I just keep working. Working on work, working on my comic and other little drawings.

Speaking of art, I want to start drawing in sketchbooks more. My art is just feeling really strange and- well, hmm, I'm not sure if it's stagnating or I'm just feeling a little frustrated. I wish I could go ahead and just draw beautiful illustrations but finding the time has proven to be difficult. I'm still getting used to working forty hours a week, I suppose. You kind of have to shift your time around and sacrifice a little. I don't like to go out as often anymore and I want to be a little more frugal, seeing how expensive gas is getting...

... but I still want to go to the beach.

So yeah, art. Art art art, my life is about art. Who would have thought? If I saw myself oh- four years ago, I don't know if I'd see myself as the same person.
Time flies and I'm- well, I'm pretty much older than a lot of my friends now. That's okay. I want to do stuff that makes me happy, I want to work on my story and just do what it takes to get myself out there and enjoy myself.

This post had purpose and meaning but I honestly forgot what it was.
I need to practice drawing more, that's for sure- on paper, I mean. I can't believe how different I draw on one medium to another.

I want a studio! Well, I want somewhere where I can watercolor. I love watercoloring, but it's super hard to find the time to do it, isn't it...

Gosh, I'm sorry this is so broken up. Talk to me! I hope you guys are doing well.

Hi Angie! Aaaaah I'm all for personal entries; it's nice to hear what you've been thinking about :'D.

OH ALSO CAN I JUST SAY that I want a studio for precisely the same reason you've just mentioned? 9 out of 10 times I will choose not to drag out my painting or inking supplies because I feel like the mess in my room is too much trouble ... Ah, if only my paints had a permanent home then we could really accomplish much!

YES. THAT LAST BIT, THAT'S EXACTLY IT. What a conundrum! I guess that's what enchants me about the digital studio -- NO MESS, just a nice environment to create in!

Oh gosh, that must be nerve-rattling having animals get into your paints ... especially if you keep the "professional" pigments with all the strange and deadly chemical combinations in them ;^;
