About last week! #2

Another week, another blog post. 

I wonder how long these posts are going to be garbage until I decide it’s cool to be vulnerable.  Perhaps, they will be garbage forever. 

I’m currently on a two day mini vacation from work so that I can finally design and organize my office. I really want to get back to the end of that lil’ vacation so I can relax for the last bit of it. 

This isn’t a great post, but hey, if you’re reading this — I assume you don’t really expect anything from me. (You shouldn’t.)

About last week...

I wanted to do project 365, but the idea of a project that tells me I have to do something everyday is a total no-go. 

But, I do want to document my life more-- I also want to write more. These two things seem to work in the favor of each other.

For the most part, I do imagine most of my photos will be in my office. The good news is that I have a cool office space.

I only have pictures for half of last week. When I decided to start doing this project, I decided to do it immediately and I didn't want to be picky about it. More than anything, I wanted this project to feel natural. 

I haven't come up with a name yet, but here are a couple photos from last week!

03/09/17 I'm trying to catch up on The Adventure Zone before I get spoiled on any plot! I've been listening since it started, but y'know.. life.. and other things..

03/12/17 Switch! I've never been a Zelda fan, but I wanted to play our Switch so here I am. To be fair, I'm having a real good time.

Overtime, I'd like these posts to be more honest and heartfelt, but here's to a first try! ❤

Sketchbook 2016

In 2016, I finally remembered I like art. I like art. Oh my god, wasn't that the only thing I enjoyed doing in high school?  Other than rock'n'roll gender issues and video games, of course. 

It was hard to admit to myself that I let good skills go to waste. I was pretty dang good at art in high school. I did/do have a best friend who was a phenomenal artist, so that was always a blow to the ol' self esteem. But, yet, if I kept my nose on my own page and believed in myself, I could have an incredible skill set by now. Luckily, I've learned that I should believe in myself and now is better than never!

2016 is the first year in a long time that I maintained a sketchbook, it's  been around 10 years since I last had one. That said, here are my favorite pages from my various sketchbooks I tried in 2016!

(I have so many half filled sketchbooks now. omg. I should not be so picky about paper and size.)
