Woooo I have an apartment! Of course, I'm broke at the moment, so I don't quite have apartment things like... oh, a bed, or anything like that. Fear not, the brokeness should cease soon. Just have to wait for checks to clear. Sigh. At least my apartment is super sweet (for my tastes). I looked at some real dumps before getting the jump on this one. I got super lucky because I saw the ad pretty much as soon as it went up and was first in line to look at it.
Aside from that--classes are starting soon, and I'm about as ready as I'm going to get. I'm testing the theory I have that I can draw my 3 weekly pages on the weekend (at least ink them--I usually color at random points in the week since all I have to do is whip out my tablet to work on that. Paneling/penciling/inking requires my big ol' clipboard and pages and ink and bluh). I paneled 3 pages and inked one today, and also did two hours of coding, so right now it seems feasible. I need to relegate all the intense drawing stuff to the weekend because it's the only thing I do that requires me carry more than what I can stuff in my backpack. It's rather inconvenient and I don't think I'd be able to do it between classes (I'm deathly terrified of accidentally leaving my drawing stuff on the bus--I'd rather not take it to campus at all).
As it stands, Metacarpolis is still gonna be 3/week unless things start heating up for real. I still have no idea how much time my schoolwork is going to consume, though I'm hopeful given my schedule and my past record. But who knows! My classes may take up ALL OF MY FREE TIME FOREVER.
Who knows, man. Who knows.
Oh, also my mother is visiting for three days. These three days also happen to be the first three days of class. She sure knows how to buy those plane tickets without asking me when she should come up.
