This morning, my daughter invented a variation on the high five called the "face five". Its as painful as it is adorable. My little ninja.... Hell of a way to wake up.
I have many things to finish. So many things. In truth, the new job has made it difficult to get anything done. You know how it is when you start a new job and they throw you in a long strip of mid shifts so that youre trained to open and close... and youre new so you get like the worst days off available...good times.
My dA is once again, more or less pretty dead. But thats ok really. I am staging a minor come back. I am reinvigorated. Have plans damn it! Alas, I have a lot of catching up to do. Lots of work that is way past well over due. Its coming, and the beauty part is, I anticipate it will be better than anything Ive done so far. Taking a break every now and again seems to do me good. I am going to catch up and then I swear I will never let myself this far behind ever again.
You know what inspires me? Artists on dA who continuously pump out work; especially comics. I can only imagine the sacrifice that takes. All that time and effort and love. Art trades.... let me tell you about art trades.. I want to get commissions. I dont know why... but art trades... are the highest honor I can think of. Anybody can pay someone to do art, but the work and effort that goes into an art trade is priceless. Thats time and energy that someone else will never get back ever, and they were willing to spend it working on something for me, in exchange for my work. I realize that is way more meaningful than money.
I have a beef... with saints row 4. Lots of fun, enjoyed it immensely.. but its a terrible co op game. I cant explain why really... Just that the world is not big enough for two super heroes. Its a one man show really. And so, I often find myself playing the third when I feel like doing co op, but even then now that Ive beat it, I am just not having as much as I used to
For a second, we were toying with the idea of moving to Oregon. So Cal is very very expensive you see... but then we realized that we love it here even when things are tough and we have decided to stick it out.
