Weekend Ramblings

It definitely feels like autumn here!  Freezing and super windy.  I spent almost a week sleeping around the clock due to a medication adjustment, (the reason I haven’t been doing much artwork) I seem to be getting used to it now though as I’m not sleeping during the day anymore.  Spent Halloween watching the Halloween movies, then of course ended up having nightmares the past 2 nights that Michael Myers was chasing me! lol

Have an appointment at my college Monday, basically just to turn in some paperwork I need to have reviewed.  If all goes well, I should be able to start classes again in the spring.  🙂

I plan on doing some holiday themed drawings this weekend, so I should be able to post more artwork by next week.

I’m excited about the upcoming holidays.  Last year for some reason, I think maybe I was depressed, I felt nothing around the holidays, was completely indifferent towards them.  I don’t believe I’ve ever really had a year where I didn’t get super excited besides last year, so I’m happy to feel that way again as it’s my favorite time of year.

Finished Interview with the Vampire and now reading The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice.  My concentration hasn’t been great but I’m working on improving it.

I’ll be doing a videogame related post soon too, it will be sometime this weekend

 

Thanks for reading!

 

Changes

I haven’t been posting mainly because I’ve been going through some big medication changes the past couple weeks, it’s certainly been a heck of an adventure.  I’m happy to say though that I’m starting to do much better, things have been improving a lot.

Autumn is on it’s way!  I’m so ready for it  😀 Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons.  I’m really looking forward to the holidays as well.  I know they’re still a ways off but I’m excited because I get to actually enjoy them this year.  I really don’t know what happened last year but I felt down and apathetic about everything, which is unusual for me especially during the holiday season.  So I plan on going all out this year with decorating and having fun.

My concentration has improved so I’ve been able to read much more. Right now I’m re-reading a book called “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**ck” by Mark Manson.  It’s a great book that I highly recommend.  I think this may be the third time I’ve read it over the past several years.  Has a lot of good advice and insight about having important values and not forcing yourself to be superficially happy 24/7 pushing problems aside until they build up and are too much to handle.

Hope everyone is doing well 🙂  I’ll be posting some stuff related to videogames and art soon, see you then!

 

Happy Thanksgiving! (I know it’s early)

I have been having trouble coming up with topics lately, if you have any suggestions let me know in the comments.

I know the holidays are tough for a lot of people.  They can be very stressful.  I’m lucky in a way.  It’s just me and my mom and we usually do the same thing for Thanksgiving every year.  A big home cooked turkey dinner and watching the Macy’s Day Parade.  It’s relaxing for the most part.  What are you doing?

Here’s what we have every year.  My mom has some serious skills in the kitchen, it’s not the most complex stuff but man is it amazingly good:

Appetizers:
Deviled eggs
Celery with olive and cream cheese spread
Sweet baby dill pickles

Dinner:
Roasted turkey
Mashed potatoes with gravy
Corn
Sweet potatoes
Brussel sprouts
Cranberry sauce
Dinner rolls
Stuffing

Dessert:
Pumpkin pie
Pecan pie
