Quick general life update, because I’ve had some anons asking me lately:
Basically, I’m good. I’m less stressed than I’ve been in ages now that Otakon and a few other huge deadlines have been taken care of. I have a few other projects I’m dealing with too, but I’ve set healthier time frames around them.
I’ve realized that I always put too much on my plate and I need to handle things one step at a time and reevaluate how I manage my time. More and more I’ve been understanding just how precious my time is. I’m backlogged on email responses and other things for other people, but I’m going to be dealing with them today and tomorrow FINALLY. I have a to-do list and everything is going to get crossed off this weekend.
Other things that are new for me: I got a part time job selling tea, which I am very excited for because that means I get a lot of good tea half-off. I’m working on volume 2 of Ladies of Literature (and if you want to apply to be an artist, you totally should.) I’m taking an online Figure Invention class in September that I absolutely can’t wait to get started on. I’m going to be opening online commissions soon. And I scored tickets to NYCC (and it was ridiculously hard to get them this year!)
So that’s me right now. Post-grad life kind of throws you for a loop, but I’m getting back on track.
arielle talks a lot
The thing no one tells you about post grad is that there are whole days where you just don't feel like doing anything.
And instead of drawing you marathon stuff on netflix.
It sucks but it's what happens.
But just remember to keep focus.
