Future Plans 2017

     When I was still at my job, I felt burned out at the end of every day. In the beginning I used to write when I could, but it turned into more work on top of already exhausting work. For the majority of my time I wasn’t doing any writing outside of this blog at all. It made me feel like I had gone across the ocean, studied for three years, chased my passion, and it was all for nothing. I was doing a job I didn’t enjoy and kept working just for the money. I saw myself growing old there, maybe becoming the assistant manager in five years, the manager in ten years, and I saw a future where working retail would become my life. And it scared the hell out of me. So I left.

The Eye That Sees All

Oh no! It’s been too long since I last posted!

Quick update: I did nothing all weekend. Today I had class, two meetings, and some reading to do. I’m still working on the reading, but it’s coming along. Will I be able to read 177 pages for 9:15am tomorrow? No. Was that my fault? Yes. Will I be able to get away with it and participate in the conversation during tomorrow’s class? Probably.

Here’s a comic I did for Textual Intervention last semester. I mentioned it here, here, here, and here. I knew I was taking a chance by doing a comic, and either my teacher would love it or hate it. Lucky for me, she loved it and I was very relieved to discover that I received an A- for this.

Here is The Eye That Sees All, based on the story The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. (You can click on each of the pages to make them bigger, but it’s even better if you can get them to open in a new window.)

A Short Post

I was going to write what was supposed to be my first Arts+Crafts post, but I’ve never painted a mug before today and I kind of messed up. You’ll have to settle for a picture of a dollar-store mug I drew on with a multi-surface paint pen. It was much easier than painting with acrylics. It looks good with my mini pink Christmas tree, doesn’t it? Nice contrast. Anyway, that’s it for this post. It’s actually forty-seven minutes past midnight so I guess that makes this post officially late. I apologize. Since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and the day after is Christmas, I might be too busy to post. If I have the time, then I’ll definitely put something up, but I’m telling you just in case. Hopefully, you’ll be too busy to notice if I do or not.

If I don’t get the chance to say it, Merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, Happy December 25th for no reason in particular.IMG_3482
