Life has been a little rough for me lately, hence my absence.
First off, the very same day that the Rooglewood Press Contest winners were announced, my computer (lovingly named Steve) took his last breath. I also had nothing backed up, but luckily my Dad is somewhat good with computers, and is going to get it all back for me. I was going to do a post about the contest, but was I was computer-less, still am. I'm borrowing my Dad's occasionally until, I have saved up enough for a new one.
I'm trying to stay positive about it, I was getting too attached to my computer. So it's probably for the best, I take a forced break.I might be able to get some books written and pictures done. Maybe I can finish all of my boxes and plaques for my Esty store and finally get it up and running. I have five blank canvases waiting to be painted. I have a calligraphy and Chinese brush painting sets I have been dying to use. I am going to order a book and try to learn to speak and write Korean, I would also like to conquer my pile of unread books that towering over me. It's not like I have a lack of things to do.
If anything Pinterest, binge watching television, and even reading all of these blogs are hindering my progress. I'm even thinking of getting rid of my phone. Maybe without my worst distraction, I can get on those resolutions. Eating healthy, being active, and getting adequate amounts of sleep sound lovely. Considering I'm a caffeine fueled, sleep deprived maniac right now.
My mom is in Africa for three weeks, and I have taken on the care of my seven younger siblings, five chickens, four cats, and a dog. Not as crazy as it sounds but still very tiring. A few of them have gotten sick so my days and nights have been unusually long. My stuff is all on the back burner, as I have to put on my mom hat.
It's going great! *Tears in my eyes and screaming in the distance*
Only 13 more days...
