I've been rather quiet as of late, haven't drawn a single piece of artwork in 1 month or more. There isn't much to say really - I have to work to make a living. I do have spare time but it occurs after 10pm and there's no way I can socialise normally, except late night online gaming. (you can spot me on Steam doing all sorts of stuff at 2am). Now and then there's a day off and I spend those days sleeping 12-16 hours non stop. The "left over hours" are spent on family, buying groceries or running personal errands.
My job isn't bad, I'm actually pretty good at it and my colleagues aren't assholes but my income is very low, not to mention my part-time contract cannot be turned into a full-time contract, ever. I may be among the poorest but I manage to pay all bills so it's not an emergency or anything, it's just me being bitter... I dusted off my tablet the other day and attempted to sketch a little. It's difficult nowadays because I can no longer see the screen unless I shove it up my face. I have glasses but I can't wear headphones on top of them. Apparently I'm no longer allowed to draw and listen to music at the same time. Even the simplest of things have turned into luxury...
My repetitive pattern of daily life continues. I should ass myself to finish some artwork and comics, maybe that'll lighten up the mood. Beautiful summer weather isn't something I get to experience these days, but I did manage to book a ferry to Sweden and buy myself some summer clothes. My grandmother granted me a pair of new shoes as well. If I get a chance to stroll down the streets in town I'm definitely wearing this stuff. I'm so used to bicycling and running I've forgotten the pleasure of non-sweaty walks.
Speaking of running and walking - some of you may remember my ankle accident back in May 2015. I broke my ankle but did not receive proper health care so I pretty much self-healed the whole damn thing. I am now capable of running and my record is approx 9km. Not bad aye? I went through so many lung freezing bicycle adventures last winter it seems the art of "running" has turned into kindergarten. I may look like a skeleton but I've got plenty of stamina and Maxwell legs.
