First...For months I've been lackluster as a watcher, artist and friend
to many, and for that I apologize. I hope to get better about getting on at least
long enough to be a better friend for my online buds. Life has thrown me many a curve ball, but instead of getting nailed straight in the face, I'm somewhat able to curve away from them now, at the least. It's been taking a lot of discovering who I am and trying to figure out who I want to be, and all that stuff no one wants to read pages about.
Second... My birthday, which was on the 10th of this month, was alright. Better than it usually turns out, and I'm trying to change my attitude about it, and the holidays. My wonderful sole gift was a trip to a town that actually had a Barnes and Noble, where I could spend my year-old gift cards. *cackles* At last!
Third... I'm pretty sick right now. A cold swept through the household again, but it affected me differently this time. Constant high fever, severe weakness, it was miserable. I thought I got over it in record time, but I had a cough that would keep popping up and afterward, bring on that weakness again. I don't mean a little cough.
It's one that brings me to my knees in racking waves. =/ I haven't had it this bad in years. It makes me struggle for breath and I cough up a lot of mucus. That and another problem is causing some weight loss, which I'm not sad about, but it's a harsh way to be losing, haha!
So anyhow, I thought I was fine and went back to my usual this and that, only for the coughing to hit me harder than before yesterday. So I grounded myself to home and true rest for at least a week. I'm not allowed to miss out on Halloween (at threat from friends) so I gotta get better. Plus, this sucks. I don't like this struggling to breathe and my lungs swimming in ick (no, I still cannot get to a doctor, unless the breathing gets so bad I need to go to the ER), so I'd rather take a nice time out then let this keep a hold on me. So what does this mean? ART! WRITING! YOUR art! Commissions and trades! Hooray!
I still have two art trade slots open, by the way. Let's DO THIS THING.
5 Sketch Trades -- OPEN (3/5)EDIT: Two more spots open. Anyone else? : )
I thought I was done with this awkward 'art block', but...nope. So I'd love to do
some sketch trades! I need to ignite my artistic-ness.
