AKA Reasons I'm not as social and active on here as I would like to be.
Hokay so, I have had a heck of a lot going on recently some good but a lot of stressful and not so good.
I'm going to start and end on the good things so first of all I have been drawing a lot more recently. Mostly Ace attorney fan art but still, I have been making an effort to draw something no matter how good, bad, finished or unfinished I am at least putting pencil to paper or tablet pen to tablet every day. I'm making progress and I am fairly happy with that. I need to work on a lot of areas that I don't practice as much as should. In other words I need to work on posing and dynamics rather than just faces. Either way I'm fairly happy with my progress and I'm excited to work more on that.
Second the not fun pretty bad news, this year has been really hard. Even before this year starting in November of 2015 I lost my Grandpa on my dads side, he wasn't blood related but I have known him as my Grandpa for my entire life. In December I lost my Grandma on my dads side. Her memorial service is next weekend in Canada along with a huge family reunion (It's taking so long because she was cremated and wanted to be laid to rest by my paternal grandfather who passed when my dad was 13). Then in January I lost my Grandpa on my moms side. In March we were told at work that we are losing one of our biggest customers to China which happens to be the line I work on. They want to cut costs by 30% and that is all in labor a ray of hope is that they don't want to get rid of anyone so they are going to try and make it work. In April my dads best friend passed away due to stage 4 liver cancer and in May my dad was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer. Thank God that it is treatable but he has to go through 2 months of radiation therapy and he owns his own business so he can't work, and last week my mom had a stroke. She is doing a little better but she is still in the hospital undergoing treatment.
Finally some more pretty good news to end things on, I started Hormone Replacement Therapy in May and it's been going pretty well so far. I made a video about two weeks ago here and plan on making one this weekend of how I give myself my injection.
Anyways sorry this is a super downer and stuff. I've just been super stressed and am going to be taking a break from twitter and Facebook because I don't need the extra stress from my intolerant family and politically heated debates. I know things are important and I'm informed on the issues. I just need to take a break from everyone else's commentary.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
