A couple of things are going on that will further my sparse participation on this site.
FIRST OFF: I have long since graduated from psychical therapy but my wrist !!keeps hurting!!!
I've gotten it up from painful cramps after an hour of tablet drawing to a couple of hours before I have to quit. It's definitely making finishing my art in a timely manner difficult. Thankfully my job is supplementing me with money to survive off of.
Speaking of jobs: I'M LOOKING FOR A SECOND ONE. My first one is too much god damned effort for the shit I have to deal with for not enough pay (I'm barely hitting $150 bi-weekly paychecks with consistent 10 hour weeks. Bleck). Deal is, I'll probs be losing some facial piercings to fit in. Oh, and being misgendered constantly is fun for my dysphoria. Its pretty taxing on my self image to have to take away from how I project myself just to fit into some stupid archaic guidelines to be found "socially appropriate". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ but yknow, America.
Another stressor lately is my bearded dragon, Spyro. If anyone remembers she had a nasty stuck shed infection a while back, and now she's got one again!! Only this time she's losing a good inch off the tip of her tail. :c I have to watch it closely and keep it clean until it falls off to make sure she doesn't get a worse infection and lose more of her butt than she already has. It's especially concerning because we are moving again very soon, move in date being the 26th!! Even though its only a drive down the road, I don't want to stress Spyro out even more because of how old she is.
MOVING is a big deal for us, since my roommate and I will be moving in with her brother and sister in a real nice house apartment with tons more room than what we have now (we currently rent a one bedroom together, we're moving into a place with 5 bedroom and 3 full baths +a backyard). Since everyone else in the household works ridiculous hours I'll be doing a lot of the unpacking myself, which I don't really mind since I can barely pay my share of rent.
That does mean that I will be holding off on opening commissions until we get settled, since I don't think lifting heavy boxes and drawing with a tablet at the same time will be kind to my wrist.
Just.... thanks for being patient. I know I've barely gotten anything done in the past couple of months.
