Just updates and things

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 25, 2013, 10:57 PM


Hadn't changed my journal in awhile, but don't really have anything profound to say... so I'll babble for awhile under the guise of an update. :P

Biggest thing - I have a proper full time job now! I'm working the Geek Squad/Customer Service counter at Best Buy.  It's amazing and crazy and I love it.  I love getting out of the house, talking to all kinds of (not always normal) people, coming home with stories to tell, and learning all kinds of new things and skills...mostly, I love that it's NOT art!
The income takes a LOT of the pressure off to always be taking commissions to try and keep up, money-wise.  This means I probably won't be taking any more for awhile, and will instead focus on catching up with the ones I have and maybe, MAYBE just doing art for fun one day.
That would be really great for me, because I currently still have a very love-hate relationship with art... sometimes I like it and want it and get excited about it, but more often than not I hate it and it hates me back.  I know part of what got me to this point was always, always doing art for someone else (commissions) and never doing it just because it felt good.  The other contributing factor was always obsessing over every tiny detail, wanting it to be perfect because I knew it was for someone else.  I'm really looking forward to (hopefully) working past this point.
This is potentially bad news for anyone hoping to commission me anytime soon, but good news for those patient souls who've been waiting on me to do their art for soooo long.  I think about who I owe what WAY more than I let on. :P
Later on, when I feel like I have a more healthy relationship with art and it's not beating me black and blue, maybe I can take a commission or two again. :}
I don't sketch anymore... I don't draw to de-stress.  Right now art IS stress.  I force myself to work on it and try my best, but there's no heart or soul in it anymore.  It's kinda sad, but most of the time I don't care anymore.  At the same time, I HATE feeling like I've dropped my end of a bargain somehow, or that I'm letting people down, so I will still most certainly be putting everything I've got into the commissions I need to finish... no worries there.
Uhhh anyway I'm rambling. 
That's really the only sort of relevant thing I had to say...kids are great, Doctor who is amazing, I get over-excited about mutant carp, I hate the cold weather here (no more running outside makes for sad wolfies) and my vision is - magically - worse, which is really saying something. :P
