Drawing My Life Away

Pretty pretty are the girls as they go by
Chilly chilly is the air under moonlit sky
The windows watch you as you walk along
And the streets lead back to where you started from

The city's watching and you can't get by
No matter where you hide you know the buildings have eyes
This place is lonely but you can't get away
No matter what you say you know the buildings have eyes

Silly silly are the thoughts that fill your head
Wish I'd never set out, wish I'd stayed in bed
You see reflections from across the street
So you better start movin' stop draggin' your feet

The city's watching and you can't get by
No matter where you hide you know the buildings have eyes
This place is lonely but you can't get away
No matter what you say you know the buildings have eyes

Money money, gotta get some money and run
Its an issue I find unenviable
It doesn't matter which way you turn
But you gotta keep trying cause you never learn

The city's watching and you can't get by
No matter where you hide you know the buildings have eyes
This place is lonely but you can't get away
No matter what you say you know the buildings have eyes

Funny funny how the world goes round and round
You better watch your step don't make a sound
The windows watch you as you walk along
And the streets lead back to where you started from

The city's watching and you can't get by
No matter where you hide you know the buildings have eyes
This place is lonely but you can't get away
No matter what you say you know the buildings have eyes

Pretty pretty
Chilly chilly
Silly silly
Money money

Well . . . life has certainly be throwing me some interesting things lately. Got a new part time job, my Canadian friend came to visit, and the kids are back in school and both are loving it.

I can't say life it all hearts and flowers and sunshine, but it is on the upswing at the moment. There's bumps along the way for sure, but I have things to look forward too which I can honestly say has not been the case in the past.

Here's to things continuing to improve. ^_^

Getting stuff dealt with

Got a dentist appt for the end of this month, doctor appt for the beginning of next month, kids start swim lessons today, and we're getting the house set for our visitor around Labor Day.

Now if I could just get my art muse to cooperate so I can get the next comic page dealt with >.

Some people, when they get a little money will go on vacation or buy an expensive toy.

I guess it goes to show how poor we've been, we're using our little cash windfall to get everyone to the dentist/doctor/optometrist. Living it up for sure.

Well, so what's been happening.

Went to two Conventions, Anime Boston and Fanime. Both were a drain on the pocketbook, but great experiences that I wouldn't trade. However . . . I'll have to think long and hard about doing another convention in the near future.

The kids just finished up school today and their grades went up in all categories . . . I'm especially proud of Meri for getting nothing lower than a B+ (in math, which we are going to work on this summer). Doug needs serious work on his handwriting skills, but part of his problem is that he's completely ambidextrous and just hasn't picked a dominant hand yet. He'll use his pencil to draw with one hand and color it with the other . . . simultaneously. O.o So . . . either we make him pick a hand and stick to it . . . or force him to learn to write really well with BOTH hands XD Either way he's working on it this summer.

The comic is plugging away slowly but surely . . . I'm actually up to page 66! Just a little ways to go until 70, and that's remarkable to me. I'm also doing fairly good business with commissions . . . not fantastic, but it's a little trickle that helps.

Other than that . . . things seem to be going fairly well. Dan's managing and working on a regular basis, we've integrated the stuff we got from Oregon into the apartment . . . not really much else to report.

Home, safe, but exhausted. It was a good experience and I met a lot of great people. Don't know if I'll go that far for a convention again, but at least I know what they're like and I'm not adverse to the idea of doing another one ;)

Finishing up

Packing and whatnot . . . I think I'm pretty much ready. I'm giving two panels and selling stuff . . . neither of which I've ever done before. Wish me luck and I'll see you later ^_^

Still have no idea when the memorial service for my mom-in-law is going to be, up to Oregon when it happens.

I'm in full panic mode getting stuff ready for the convention . . . whyyyyy did I make that A-frame so big? It's gonna cost a fortune to ship ;_;

Anyway . . . just posting to say I'm still around but scarce. Hope everyone is doing well ^_^.

Anxiety and doubt

Share

So . . . I'm totally and utterly committed to going to Anime Boston as well as Fanime Con.

I told myself I would take a chance for the first time in my life . . . and I'm doing it.

But now I find myself asking "At what cost? Am I going to destroy what little financial footing my family has on what is probably a long shot?"

Seriously. I know I'm not that great an artist . . . certainly not on par with most(if not ALL) the ones who are going to be at the cons. I keep asking myself . . . would anyone pay for my art? Because I sure as hell wouldn't. I'm afraid friends don't count. Pity commissions are all I've gotten so far and that's all I probably should expect.

Yeah . . . I have crappy self esteem . . . what else is new?

So . . . there it is. No backing out now but I'm still scared to death that I am making quite possibly the biggest mistake of my life. Yay me? Hope my children will be able to forgive me when we can't afford to pay rent or eat because I spent all our money on making prints that won't sell and paying to get to cons.-_-
