Just wanted to say hey to some of the recent followers, as well as those who have been around longer ( I do notice and appreciate the love! )
Few little updates on myself:
- Graduated life is definitely treating me well. A little too well, hahaha I really don’t want to get too comfortable having moved back home. My initial plan was to move back to the city as soon as possible, ideally before fall. It doesn’t look like that will be happening, mostly because I over-estimated the job market. So instead I am saving my money, working my retail job, and applying to design jobs online every chance I get!
- With my new-found time, I have returned to an old hobby of mine, which is fitness! I used to be something of a runner, and I played soccer in high school. My bestie and I started running again at the beginning of the summer, but it was just sooooo hot. And, if any of you are runners out there, you know that if you stop running for oh say, months, and you restart, you’re not exactly in the same shape anymore. So it was pretty discouraging to be exhausted after what used to be my warmup distance. SO! I switched gears, and started getting into what I had kinda been intimidated by for a long time; lifting. I’d messed around with dumbbells before, but now I’m really enjoying learning some compound lifts, like squats, deadlifts, etc. After a month or so of getting comfortable with form, I started following the Strong Lifts program for those of you who know/care what that is. I’m three weeks in, and I gotta say I’m pretty happy with where it’s taking me!
- I needed some direction for my painting and drawing, so I looked up some Call to Artists in my area, and I’m gonna make work aimed at those shows! Even if they’re not accepted, or whatever, I just need the kickstart and the motivation to make something I’m proud of.
Keep drawing, my tumblr friends.
And always feel free to ask questions or lend advice!
