Bye Bye, Subscription
My sub runs out tomorrow, so I figured I'd update my Journal before then so that my latest entry could have a Journal skin until I updated again. I will sub again, but I'm not sure when I'll have the money to do so.
I'm still drawing a little something every day, even if it's something weird like that dragon-shrimp monster I drew attacking a random person yesterday. I'm inspired to draw some posed pictures instead of portraits, though, which is always a good feeling.
OMPC For Avengers, Continued
I'll admit, I'm surprised by at least one of the most popular choices in the poll about who to pair with Loki for fanart: Black Widow! That's neither yaoi nor total crack since she gets at least the one scene talking to Loki one-on-one in the movie.
Other pairing options for Loki that are likely are Thor (also highly voted in) and Emma Frost (based purely on how Loki calls her "my sweetness" in that comic book I have. Hehe.)
Got New Glasses
Phew--I have the new glasses now, and the prescription in the old ones was so outdated that it feels like life has been switched to HD.. The new glasses are black-framed with a rectangular lens shape. I need to update my profile pic, so I will likely post a picture of me wearing them.
Lately I have been considering switching jobs again. The job I have isn't bad or anything, but they haven't been giving me enough hours to pay my bills with, much less have any money left over. I'm sick of stressing and having to borrow from family to get by.
Naturally, my options for other jobs consist of "practical jobs that pay a steady paycheck" and "fantasizing about freelancing again so I have free time almost all the time like before." I've only worked an hourly job for about a year and a half at this point, so I'm kind of spoiled on having my own schedule.
Speaking Of Schedule
In an attempt to take better control of my day-to-day time use, I have assigned myself a bedtime (3 am) and a wake up time (10 am.) I always wind up super groggy if I wake up at the wrong point in my sleep schedule, and the "wrong point" seems to be at 7 hours or anything more than 8 hours. It also takes me about half an hour to fall asleep, though, so I gave myself 7 hours total, assuming I will sleep about 6 and a half of them.
I'm also trying to build more daily routines. Life's been so stressful and busy and worrisome lately that I had even fallen out of my usual morning coffee routine, so I want to bring that back. My meals are a total disaster--I basically eat whatever's around and can be cooked fast before work. I am trying to each breakfast, lunch and dinner again (it's easier not to skip breakfast when you don't sleep through it.)
I was given some paint tubes and paper and color palettes, some pastels, some colored markers, and some colored pencils. Between all of those, perhaps I'll be able to turn out some decent traditionally-colored artwork. Wish me luck!
Wanna Cosplay, But...
Sakura-Con is fast approaching, I have the days of the con plus the day before requested off from work already...but going to the con and making costumes both require money, and I haven't seen much of that lately. I still want to go, but we'll see if I can afford it. =/
Off I Go, Then
As always, I hope anybody reading this is doing well out there in DA-land. Feel free to comment or toss questions at me anytime!
