Hello again, everybody. Man, it has been such a ridiculous amount of time since I have been on here.
BUT! I do have a few reasons as to why. please, just bear with as I give you a slice of Jika's life.
SO, reason 1: my laptop.
As many of you know, I do a lot of digital work, but I also have to edit my scanned in traditional work because my scanner hates me. In all unfortunate events, my laptop is dying. She is on her last leg, guys. The fan is busted, the hard-drive is about to give up (i have an external one for my saved things) and she lags. A lot. Any digital artists out there know that lagging is our worst enemy, next at artist's block, I think. I need to invest in a new laptop soon, but I first need to save up enough money. And with taking my horse to the National Youth Show this year, that is going to be a difficult feat. And, I cannot do very much UNTIL I get a new laptop
I do have a question, though, what are your favorite brands/ types of laptops and what kind do you use?
Reason 2: school
My education here recently has taken a turn for the worse. I am studying around 3 hours every night, and that does not include the compositions due every week and all the maths that I do every night. As some might deduce, that strain on time puts a huge dent in my art life. It has been so much so that I barely get things finished that I do for others, much less any personal works. This should start to calm down around April/May, but that is when all my summer projects start.
Reason 3: sick
Yes, you hears me. The invincible Jika has been struck down in arms! But, really. All laughs aside, I really am sick. I think I posted a journal a while ago about me having mono. That is still going on. My endurance to do anything in nothing like it used to be. I am tired all the time, and there are days that I just cannot get out of bed to do anything. Given the chance, I sleep for 15 hours on a regular basis. I have to force myself to get through some days. It is awful. I have no motivation to do anything, much less the energy to do so. I am on some meds that should help, but I see no effects thus far.
Reason 4: just life
Yes, guys, I do have a life on the outside. I have responsibilities and such to others and to myself. While I love each and everyone of you on this site, I just cannot ignore my outside life. One of the awful things about growing up.
GUYS!!! dO NOT GET THE WRONG IDEA. i WILL GET BACK ON HERE AS SOON AS i AM ABLE TO. Goodness, I really miss being a member on here.
I have been doing some photography on my phone that I could post on here. Would you guys like for me to post some of those??
