Holy crap, it’s been way, way too long since I’ve posted anything. I suppose that, sadly, I have Facebook to thank for that. After all, I used to use this blog as a soapbox to spout everything from fleeting trivial thoughts to deep pontifications. But the invisible pressure of updating my Facebook status, as lame as it sounds, actually does take up a pretty good portion of whatever stupid little thing I might have wanted to post on this blog.
It’s not from any need to make myself heard, and I certainly don’t owe anything to my handful of readers that might continue to frequent this site. (Sorry for the lack of updates, all three of you.) I suppose I’ve just been keeping myself busy at work and using the rest of the time between awake and asleep taking care of all of the other silly little things that demand my time. Chores, studying design sites, trying to figure out how to become the best me that I possibly can.
I even learned to sew little stuffed animal critters.
Lil’ Miss Kitteh. She’s loving life.
And there’s a lot more that I plan on doing with my free time as well. I’ve been propositioned to illustrate a children’s book by a family member. I want to write something substantial again. I want to get back into drawing and cartooning, which has been severely lacking ever since I got a job that doesn’t afford me hours of sitting around doing nothing. All more important than reporting on the things that aren’t happen in my life.
But hell… maybe this is a step in the right direction. I don’t want to get rusty. Crafting marketing messages for insurance companies is one thing, but this is a different sort of creating. Free as a bird type creative. I’ll try to write more.
