I am starting to paint my new triplicate of the animals! I want it to look a little monster-y with bright, neon colors and their names framed around their portraits. I painted some of Fritz’s yesterday, and will post them up here as I get them done. As a little teaser, I found something online that is done in kind of the style I’m going for:
I also decided my new schedule today. I’m one of those people who doesn’t need a schedule, but when I have one I try to stick to it. Especially since I am going to try to lose weight, I need a strict eating and working out schedule because I am notorious for not eating enough to keep my metabolism going. I’m hoping the schedule will also help me complete some art and writing projects, among other things.
Here’s the schedule (shut up, bitches, I know it’s boring):
- 6:30 AM- Running
- 7:00 AM- Breakfast and getting ready for work
- 9:00 AM- Work
- 10:00 AM- Snack #1
- 12:00 PM- Lunch
- 2:00 PM- Snack #2
- 3(or5)PM- Come home from work and hang out with the fandamily
- 6:00- Cook dinner
- 7:00- Paint or work on another art project
- 8:00- Write
- 9:00- Read
- 10:00- Clean and get ready for the next day of running, arting, writing, reading, sex…I mean, sleeping.
Again, I know it’s a boring-ass schedule. But, there are a couple of writing projects I really want to focus on: the sci-fi series Jud and I are writing for adults, a series for young adults (full disclosure soon), a poetry project I’ve had in my mind for years, and a series of short stories I’ve already finished but which need to be revised. It sounds like a lot of work, and it is! But it’s about time to put in the effort because I’m sick of just sitting here without the recognition, respect, and hookers and blow that I deserve. Wow, don’t worry, I was kidding about the hookers.
And, hopefully, as my artistic confidence rises up and up and hits the ceiling, opportunities will come my way. I know that writing is what I am meant to be doing. I’ve known it since the fourth grade. And, yeah, judge this blog all you want. But I hate to break it to you: it’s a damn blog. I’m writing here like I’m talking to you, not like I want you to put me up for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Oh, and another thing: visiting the ANT department at ECU soon…hope they never read this blog.
