I have been posting most of my thoughts to my tumblr account, so I will keep this brief. If you want to keep up with my journal posts, please go here: indirect-crayon.tumblr.com/
Things have been going really well! I have been drawing regularly and I've been experimenting with gouache, so expect to see new images uploaded soon! I've been trying really hard to prioritize what's important to me (my arts practice, and my family and friends), so I have basically cut television and video games out of my life. Seriously, if you feel like you don't have enough time in your life, cut back on television.
I still watch one series at a time (currently one episode of Rookie Blue a week) but I find television is just not as important as the other things I could be doing: drawing, painting, going outside, spending time with friends, reading, keeping a journal - there are so many things that I find more rewarding than television. Therefore, I'm currently keeping time spent watching t.v. shows to a minimum. Unfortunately the same goes for video games. I played Guild Wars 2 for a bit last night for the first time in months!! I still love video games and I doubt I will ever stop playing them altogether but by seriously cutting back, I have so much more time for the things I find more fulfilling.
Onwards and upwards from here!
