  • Listening to: The Magic vs. Lakers game in the other room
  • Reading: Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett
Ah, yes. Summer. A time for enduring fierce thunderstorms, sweltering heat, and spending a pretty good amount of one's time tending to sun-induced burns upon one's skin that leave one looking like a certain large-clawed crustacean. Pass the melted butter please.
But anyway, this is my fifth day of summer vacation. So far I've spent it working, which would be fine, except for the fact that pay is a bit scarce at the moment. But such is the life of working in a family-managed business. I suppose I can't complain. After all, my employers feed me, clothe me, and allow me the privilege of having a roof over my head and a warm bed to sleep in. Yeah, I can deal.

Strangely enough though, I'm not bored. Not yet at least. Looking back at my hectic school year, I've learned to embrace having days where I have absolutely nothing to do at all. Even work is relaxing to an extent. The work I do requires minimal thought, allows me to work with people, and, on breaks, gives me access to free-time. On days when I don't work I have the opportunity to sleep for as long as I want, read whatever I want, and I even have time for creativity. Yes, I love drawing cartoons for people, but I want to get back to moving forward. I got bored of doing realism for a while, but it's a skill I need to get back to. I don't use it often (since I really do enjoy doodling cartoons a bit more), but I need to keep it on hand, especially if I want to get started on a portfolio of some sort.

Also, I recently got Photoshop! This means that since I can draw directly on the computer now, I can upload work more frequently! ^^
I'll still be posting pictures of my plushies (Yes, I've birthed more. Hope you've all got bomb shelters ready! :D) and maybe if I can convince *coughhasslecough* someone to let me use or get a scanner I can put up drawings again.

But we'll just have to see. I say that a lot, don't I? I'm sorry.

Halstooooon! 8D I miss you! x] XD I'm watching the game too, though it appears you're just listening XD

I'm loving the storms! My heaven! <3

You're not bored?! *_* Teach me your secret! I'm bored out of my wits! XD Not really, since I can always find something to do, but nothing really deems highly attractive...I need Bleach, like, pronto.

Yay! Photoshop! More deviations! 8D Go Halston! Who's scanner are you swiping, Kaley's? XD
