OKay so I was hoping to have better news by now better as I promised myself that I give a update journal as to were I'm at in life, art and such.
The short story is that the last few weeks have been really tough. Near the end of April, I had an entire week of bad luck: from a migraine attack to my bag going missing to bad customers it was a mess. But the absolute worst of it was the fact the basement (where I live) was flooded after heavy rain fall and I had to move upstairs until the professionals said otherwise. That was back in April on the 27th, and today on the 15th of May I still haven't gotten my room back nor most of the items that were in it. I've been sleeping mostly upstairs on the floor mattress or sometimes in my sisters room when I'm lucky. With most of my stuff now inaccessible, I've been limited with my wardrobe, reading materials, old sketches (for reference) and most importantly personal space. I don't have anywhere to go to get away and recharge my batteries, to get some quiet and alone time. My family, though have been helpful with the transition to an extent, are not the easiest to be around for long periods. I could go into many stories but the short end is that I've been getting headaches during the evening hours (I've had to go to bed earlier then usual which is impossible cause my family doesn't get quiet until 10 or so) and I wouldn't be surprised if they are part of the reason.
But only part as my job has some influence too: the last couple weeks they've been giving more hours. Its good for the paycheck and shows they like me and want me to stick around but also means that I'm already exhausted before I come home, so you can imagine how I am after dealing with my folks.
As you can imagine art has suffered, I managed to get my desktop and laptop upstairs but its been slow. Mostly cause I can't get into the same groove I do with art as I'm very insecure with content I watch while working along with the art itself (my folks aren't always the most supportive of my choice art expression). But work is being done and I'll likely go into more detail on my TLK account (that's the stuff I've been focusing on) so look for that.
And there is good news. Most of the carpet has dried and they (the professionals) will hopefully start the process of setting down carpet padding (which was ruined in the flooding) on Monday/Tuseday. I'll HOPEFULLY get my room back on Wednesday though moving everything back will take some time (I haven't even gone into detail over the other rooms progress). But having my own room will be a step and it will likely push my drive back up again once I'm settled and properly rested. Plus the insurance said they'll be paying for damages and repairs so that's nice too. It could have been ALOT worse and I'm glad it was just a inconvenience instead of a tragedy.
That's all, I'll come back when things are better to tell you how it is. Thanks for you continued support.
