Watchers

Giving it my Kanye Best

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 13, 2014, 7:07 AM
So I've had some ups and downs in general with my moods affecting me quite poorly and since September started I haven't caved on my self-imposed daily routine (work out / brushing teeth properly / drawing etc.) even though it probably seems really lame and insignificant, it's been keeping me from feeling like I lose a day if I sleep in or something. "At least I'm still keeping my routine."

It got so bad with my mood that I really did basically lose an entire day to it and decided to start another playthrough of Final Fantasy IX since it's kind of a happy place full of nostalgia for me and it's doing wonders for helping me fight the urge to nap also fanart is fun as heck so there's that too.

Just gonna keep slugging away with artwork and this routine and ideally by the end of the month I don't even think about it. Honestly I stopped counting what day it was about a week ago, I only know the date because it's a month away from my 23rd birthday which has crept up pretty quickly too.

MAICON has been and gone and I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout considering I had no idea what a convention in Launceston could be like, met some really cool people too. I really do think networking with other artists / fans of stuff I like is the best thing to motivate me to keep drawing so much. Been losing a little of the passion to draw lately since I found out TAFE fees for the course I wanted to do next year, I don't really want to go into student debt so it's put me off getting a diploma in Graphic Design OR Visual Arts, both of which I'm sure I could complete if the payment wasn't so scary. Bleh.

In the meantime, I'm considering the rest of this month to be about personal improvement in all areas and then October can be about uh... well I'm not sure. I suppose I'll just work on my work ethic and keep at it right up until my birthday on the 13th of October so I can really enjoy it and relax having earned the break. YEAH!
