You guys wanna know what I miss? I REALLY really miss having time to draw. To be able to sit back and watch hours of TV, I even miss playing videogames. Since I highly want Kingdom Hearts 3.. but no PS4 (though I'll just buy one.)
I still haven't even been able to sketch out Knii's ref for
and I'm just.. really frustrated about that. I just miss being able to do something that I loved for many years, to be able to draw my characters and friends' oc's... you know?
But now that I'm an full-time employed adult, the only thing I get to do is work, come home and eat dinner and maybe
watch a short 30min or less TV show, then go online for 2 - 2 1/2 hours then off to bed to make sure I get enough sleep for the next work day.
By the time I get home from work I'm not only physically but mentally/emotionally exhausted as well. Having social anxiety and being forced to be around people for 8+ hours really drains you. So when I get home every day
, I literally collapse onto the couch. And even on weekends all I want to do is sleep and lie around the house and not do anything or be around anyone, because I'm still recovering from the work week.
So for those of you who have yet to fully "convert" or move onto the adult lifestyle where you have to work until you can afford to retire, please.. PLEASE VALUE the time you have for your hobbies and appreciate it. Because eventually you won't have that time unless you ask for a day off x amount of time in advance.Or if anyone has any suggestions or advice about this?
I'd really appreciate it a lot because I honestly miss drawing to death, but I don't have the time or energy for it now ;-; like what I mean is, this drawing of my Ruby Gemsona
pre-full time employment would've taken me less than a week to draw, but that ref sheet took over 2 weeks to make.
