Been going through some tough times lately. In fact, i recently just busted out crying at work.
Lots have been going on and time has been very short. So i'm going to break things down for you all before i head to work.
Mom recently got injured which put her out of work for 4 weeks. This will make things very difficult at the moment on my day off to work on things because she'll be around and i won't have the privacy to work on sexy things.
Pressure at work and the demands get higher and higher.
Sister wedding coming up and i'm being consulted on things and have to work on her wedding program.
Planning certain event for Otakon.
Other random weekend running around shenanigans with folks.
Reapplying to return to finish my degree
planning prints for selling at various art allies at cons
planning patreon account
planning reboot of DCSD
Also i've been running low on energy every night after work. But let me break a typical day of work for you.
530 am Wake up
6:00 am head out the house
6:30-6:40am get on the bus
8:00-8:30am arrive at work
8:30am clock in at work
12:00pm 30 minute lunch break
4:30pm clock out of work
4:40pm arrive at subway to leave from work
4:55pm arrive at transfer station to other train line
5:10pm arrive at final train station
5:30pm depart from station via bus
6:10pm arrive at bus stop
6:20pm arrive at home
6:30pm eat dinner
mind you i'm in retail at the moment. My day involves lots of heavy lifting and running around and helping customers. Usually i'm lifting between 500lbs - 1000lbs depending on the tasks at hand. I'm usually standing all day from clock in, to the subway commute home. I'm usually super sore when i get home and physically exhausted. It's been getting more and more intense at work. I've been thinking of potentially looking for something else so i can have more energy and time to work on commissions and other art projects i have.
I have a list of things/commissions on my computer set aside to remind me when i can get the energy and chance to work. I haven't forgotten, just been really drained physically and mentally.
I've been planing to do a return stream for some time to get the gears going. Maybe i'll see sometime this week in the evening. Might be short, but who knows.
until then...stay tuned and thanks for sticking around and supporting. This means a lot to me even though right now i'm struggling with lots of things. Thanks for your patience.
