Feeling Great!

Well, it’s finally cooling off!  Love this time of year

I’m very stable mentally, more than I’ve been in over a year and am going to start looking into part time work soon 🙂

I feel excited about life and my future!  I’m hoping to be able to start classes again and finish up my degree, it won’t be until the spring semester because I’m focusing on getting a job right now and moving hopefully within the next 4 or 5 months to a better apartment.

Just wanted to check in, hope everyone is well 🙂

Summer Thoughts and a Sketch

Haven’t posted in a bit because of internet connection issues but it seems to be working a little better now.

Life has been going well, I’m just ready for summer to end.  It’s been extremely hot and I hate summer anyway, fall and winter are my time of year.  Love snow, ice, really cold temps.  Maybe I’m weird lol

Anyway, I’ve been drawing quite often and wanted to share one of my recent sketches

Drawing more frequently has been helping me improve, at least from what I can tell when I look through my sketchbooks at older drawings.

I’m interested in trying out some pastels I have, I’ve never really worked with them much but it seems like it would be fun.

Also have been getting interesting in crafts lately.  I’d like to make some of that slime stuff that’s so popular and maybe some clay as well.

I’m thinking of doing some more videogame themed posts here and also book reviews because I read so much.  I’ve been having a hard time lately with motivation and inspiration for posts to make.

 

 

Thanks for reading!

Halloween Jack o’lantern Sketch

Here’s a drawing I completed yesterday.  I like how sketches look when they’re colored but I used to shy I way from it because I was always better with shading in black and grey.  I’m getting more comfortable with it now since most of the assignments in my Intro to Drawing class are supposed to be colored.  This wasn’t an assignment, just something I did here at home.  I always enjoy drawing Halloween stuff in the fall.  I think I did a fairly good job with the coloring, I’m learning as I go.  This was a quick sketch but hopefully I improve along the way.

I caught that sneaky little elusive thing known as sleep!

Autumn1I finally got sleep last night! I spent three weeks only sleeping 2-4 hours a night and being up for 36 or more hours several times, it was crazy.  My doctor prescribed something to help me with it and it’s amazing what a difference in thought clarity from before and today with just one night of normal rest.  I also didn’t have bad dreams relating to my moms death for the first time in very long time which was such a relief.  The dreams I had were super bizarre but that’s okay.  (For some reason the Dalai Lama was there and we were high, he moved into the neighborhood and was out jogging in the morning???….)

Any way, I went to a vigil mass which was very nice.  The weather is beautiful and I took a couple pics of the fall colors.  Also, I tried froyo for the first time and I love it, I have seriously been missing out!
