I am way lazier than I should be. I’m going to clean my room and try and get my shit together. Do you ever imagine yourself having a nice introverted day, drinking tea, drawing, reading, etc… but the reality is you are on your bed, eyes barely open, scrolling stupid websites for hours and then getting a headache? BECAUSE IT HAPPENS TO ME MORE THAN IT SHOULD.
I actually have like no friends in my town, besides Jenn, but we’re both introverted people and don’t hang out often. So most of my time is with Nick or myself. Which is fine, and I like being by myself, but I don’t make good use of my alone time that often. I have been making small improvements but it’s time to speed things up.
In other news I have the next few weekends booked up with social activities and I’m quite excited for them.
An inaccurate abomination of Link. I promise I’ll stop posting so many instagrams now.
Nick and I bought this awesome MEC sleeping pad for two today. I just want to buy all the camping gear I possibly can. So many outdoorsy things this year, I’m a bit nervous for sea kayaking but I think I need to get out of my comfort zone and go for it. It IS guided, so I should be in good hands.
Things are pretty good. My boyfriend got me a job as an aquatic lab technician in March which is pretty much what I’ve been aiming towards in terms of a job. It may not be glamorous but it makes me feel good about myself and that I’m contributing to something important, which I haven’t felt in a long while. Animal care is my field and I’m glad I finally feel sure about this area of my life.
I did a few commissions over the last 6 months, which was fun but I also realized I work best when I’m creating something from my own willpower. I can’t forget that the most important part of creating is having fun. I’ve been putting a weird amount of pressure on myself since university and it’s time to not be such a perfectionist. I’ll definitely do more commissions in the future, but only a very limited amount at a time. Right now I’m going to work on some of my own things.
I want to do more traveling. It’s something a think about a lot these days. Nick and I were going to go to California but we switched our plans around and we are going to a national park in Quebec instead. And I am REALLY excited because it sounds so cool. I’m also excited for the road trip part of it, surprisingly. Another place we really want to go to is Hawaii, but that’s for later.
Anyways, it’s been a while since I made a long personal post. I don’t really need to vent anymore on here, 2013 was hell but also a good year at the same time. No more dwelling on the past, just moving forward.
@gels commission not quite done. Scissors necessary. #wip #art #illustration #GoT (it’ll be done tomorrow I promise)
