Hey all,

I should address my systematic decline over the past few months. I'm just very caught up in work, school, and all those fun adult things. I'm currently working at a tutor to children and still in University, still a competitive debater and now I have taken up numerous volunteer positions teaching and working at the local Museum/Library/Pool in my town. (For example, I'm presenting at elementary schools about Heart and Stroke and teach the entire school about fundraising through a program called Jump Rope for Heart.) Obviously, this takes a lot of energy from me. My schedule is obviously packed from 9am - 8pm Monday to Friday. I like being busy and on my feet, so I'm doing art when I can take the time. Which obviously is not a lot, given I'm only home for downtime, sleeping, and cooking (my go-to stress reliever).

When I do have time to relax I deal with upcoming tasks by micromanaging myself, emailing and/or study/read - to be completely honest I'm a dork :nerd: rvmp 


I swear commissions are the first thing I do work on when I work on art, I often start working on art but then realize I have to plan/move onto another task or work. So my attention is often very divided now. That's the difference now that I'm older and have more responsibilities that require me to always be on point - obviously being that my schedule is busy I cannot risk loosing time or forgetting things, so I work very quickly now and often have shotgun-like attention when relaxing it seems. 

So that's me. My life is busy, haha. But I love it that way. I have to go study so I'll end this here. Tomorrow I finish a position as a "princess" for the Medieval week at my local Museum. I got to do acting and improv with children, so that was fun! I'm expanding my skill set and enjoy challenging myself often. If I'm going to get any studying done I need to start now before my bedtime. 

:study: 

Have a wonderful summer.

Awe thank you so much! I know, I'm finally kicking myself to finish up a bunch of work before my next year of University. Thank you for the kind comment :D 
Here's hoping I can continue it more consistently throughout the year!
