It's amazing how much a couple of days a nice weather and fewer responsibilities can really
put you back on track, "Well, sort of." I injured my ankle last week which allowed for some
much needed rest and relaxation. I feel like a new human being now
I don't actually know
how long this feeling will last but hey why not make hey while the sun is still shinning?
As far as my art projects go, the hardest aspect for me is finding the time to work on anything.
As soon as I think I have some time to work on my art, some drama comes my way, from
at home or at work, that sucks up all my free time, leaving me with little energy to spare.
I don't want to give up again, even though my last journal sort of already implied that I have.
I've been working really hard on this stuff and the more I gloss over it the more
determined I feel to complete it. I honestly don't want to be left with bitter memories of
what could have been if I had the staying power to follow it through.
I thought working on my projects in smaller segments would help, but it just makes it
feel as if I'm not really getting much done at all and is sort of discouraging. I think the
hardest thing for me right now is staying motivated. It's not as easy as it used to
be back in the day, for I find I have less inspiration and less patience. When I finally
do have a good day, and feel like, "Damn, I really feel inspired" I can always leave it
to my family to take that away with there own problems most often adding to my
own. I guess this is just one of the pains of growing old with your family and why
a lot of people choose to get out early on in life so not having to deal with them.
Keep in mind that this doesn't necessarily mean you will actually escape this
scenario by doing so.
I think life has become a bit predictable, and I need to shake things up a bit. I'm
not looking to jump into the grand oasis that is life or anything like that, just
something different from my normal routine, which is to go to programs, to Va,
run errands for family, help mother and brother and try to keep the house from
burning down to the ground 00...Yeah I've said too much already.
I feel like doing something that I really haven't had time to do in a long time. I'd like to
give my characters a proper introduction. Hopefully to raise a little interest in the project
and possibly keep me focused. It's a lot harder to make something totally original with no
origin stand out so I feel TSSM is in need of a little exposure.
This journal is going to be a two part journal. The first part is just a basic rant, which
you are reading right now, sorry for that :_: Lets see if I can make the second part a
bit more interesting :3 I just feel like putting something together that is alive at five,
and I think I will, like back in the good old days. Stay tuned, I'm about to tinker in
Adobe CC :3 God knows what I'll turn out, but at the very least it will be remotely
entertaining. The catch is I have to finish it tonight. Lets see if I can make that
happen. Can I make something awesome in the next three hours? Let's find out
Its Go time!
Stay tuned, a second journal is heading your way and it will be
TSSM oriented ^_^
