I’m playing mabinogi again! But as a new starting character for the nao server.
I used a name generator that I googled to decide on the name lol I did think on it long and hard to give it some love though.
It’s a good day if I’m able to play mabi and even pick up my sketchbook to draw. (*’v`*)
I also konmari my room and finished today, too.
I dwelt on my friend’s advice and so I decided to get the traveler’s company traveler’s notebook over the hobonichi. I made the purchase at jetpens today and I’m excited for my order to arrive!
I did pay a little more than I would with a hobonichi but the traveler’s notebook will help me save alot in the next few years. I won’t be able to write everyday so the traveler’s notebook will definitely fit my style. (人´♡`)
Ahh, Monday. I don’t abhor you. I don’t like you either. Going back to the usual routine is good I guess.
I cleaned up my main again and updated the about page. During downtime at work, I thought about how I should minimize and balance my social media usage and presence:
1. twitter – main social, drawings
2. instagram – art and journal inspiration (my account will be temporarily down for the meantime!)
3. main blog – personal posts, photos, life, etc
My friend came to visit me last Saturday. We pretty much hanged out the whole day – We went to a couple malls lol, we walked around and visited shops, ate hotpot and went to a barnes & noble cafe.
She showed me her hobonichi again and it was filled with her beautiful handwriting and cute little drawings. I felt so happy to have seen a page completely filled with writing. I felt so inspired that I wondered if I should start a hobonichi, too! Her good advice was to think very hard on it. I understand because they are kinda expensive so I should really consider if I can commit to writing a journal daily.
Something for me to think about. 〔´∇｀〕
Instructor [Vance Kovacs] made a couple points that just sank into me from last class – We are living in a generation that is going through a [low-attention span culture], and how one must [take the time to look at one painting].
Notice the mark-makings, the lines, the shapes, all the values that formed it.
[Spend enough time with the painting]. Breathe it in. Absorb it. Look at it well.
It made me thought of what I have been doing, how I should be more aware. I ought [to slow down, stop, and look at things].
It came in the mail yesterday! 🙏
Frosty and chimken detto last night
I reconnected with a really good friend of mine whom I’ve known since so long ago! We’re going to visit her this June and do all sorts of catching up and fun stuff. Exciting!
