Humpday Update #16

12:53:00 PM


I actually haven't been up to much in particular. At least, not enough to really explain away my absence for the past week and half. 

In truth, my routine fell apart. I lost all control of my schedule and my health so it took it's toll. Staying up late to game, stressing over work and bills, and somewhat losing the want to create hurt my sleeping patterns which triggered migraines. A chronic ailment I've usually managed to keep under wraps with proper sleep and eating habits. 

Today is the first day I've felt pretty good and can reflect back on what I did manage to accomplish in the past few days.

     

I got to feel old and really proud as I saw two of my younger cousins off to prom and attended one of their graduations from my own Alma Mater. It was a graduation filled with 160 years of tradition with white dresses and a dozen red roses. It was very nostalgic and emotional for me and I'm very proud of both them.


I've also slowly tried to pick up my drawing skills. Keeping paper and pencil with me always and drawing whatever comes to mind. I limit myself by thinking too hard about my art and trying to make a "perfect" thing instead of just creating.

Work has been pretty essential too. I'm a junior designer at a baby decor company and it's your average nine-to-five. I find myself lucky that it's within my field of study and a stepping stone to getting into a broader creative company, but I struggle a little with keeping my head up.

Overall I've just been trying to get back into the swing of things.

I hope I'm not the only one looking forward to the blog picking back up. :)

Till next time!
