    • All work and no play!

      Well strictly speaking I wouldn't say no play, but it certainly feels like that!
      I've had a pretty busy couple of weeks (months even!) and it doesn't look like it's going to let up any time soon. Had a bunch of class tests and assignment deadlines the past few weeks, got an essay due on monday, a lab exam and another class test in about 2 weeks time. Hopefully once March ends I might get some breathing room before the mad exam rush starts as we get closer to the end of the semester. Unfortunately this means that I haven't had any time to draw lately and I doubt I'll have any time in the near future either what with studying, work and uni commitments. So, sorry. Again :(
      Even though it's been quite hectic there has been some quiet spells and there has been some fun things going on. Booked and completely paid for a holiday with my friends (well paid for my part anyway :p) in the beginning of June. I went to a Beyonce concert/gig or whatever you want to call it at the end of February which was amazing! Words can't begin to describe how fantastic it was!
      To top it all off last weekend was the Pharmacy Ball and it was even better than last year. Had such a great time with all my friends in my year and met some lovely people in other years too. Might put some pictures up of the ball at some point :)
      I don't think I'll have much time to come on here for a while but hopefully I'll be able to sneak on in between studying, working, training and uni :)

    • It's been a while

      5 years ago

      rebeccared

      Hadn't realised how long it's actually been since I was last on this site until I looked at my last journal entry! Has it really been 3 months?!
      As you can probably tell I've been pretty busy which is why I haven't been on here much lately. A combination of lots of course work and studying, working 2 jobs, joining the trampolining club at uni and trying to cut down the amount of time I spend on the internet have all played a part in my absence. I've not even really had much time to draw and/or finish any requests I have yet to complete - I've also had an extreme lack of motivation to plug my tablet in, pick up the pen and get to work.
      I'm currently in the middle of an exam period but I took a break today after an exam to start and finish a colouring practice excerise and it's clear I've gotten kinda rusty when it comes to art!
      For those of you that have probably given up on ever seeing the request you asked for I can't apologuise enough, but don't lose hope I WILL get to them eventually. I promise!

    • Apologies for the delay in completing requests!

      Been back at Uni for about 2 weeks now and in the run up to uni I had a lot of extra shifts at both of the places I work. I really shouln't be making excuses but I'd just not been able to draw even when I had been able to find a bit of time to sit down with my tablet, I'd sorta lost motivation and had a little bit of art block!
      BUT today I sat down during some well needed free time and sort of forced myself to FINALLY complete the warm up drawing I started a while back, so once I've had a small break I'm going to do a little bit of work on a few of the requests I've started. None of them will be finished tonight because not only do I have uni work to do for tomorrow I'm also a bit ill at the moment :(
      So, yeah, LONG STORY SHORT - I'm sorry I've not completed any requests in a while but I'm back in the drawing saddle and hopefully i'll have some completed soon!

    • Why do I keep agreeing to take extra shifts?!

      5 years ago

      rebeccared

      Just got a call from my boss asking me to work from 12 till 6 on Friday, which is ok at least it's not till 6 BUT I've got an induction lecture at half 9 at uni on Friday morning which will probably finish at about 11 which only gives me an hour to get to work. An hour is still probably maybe enough time for me to get there but still I need to try and fit in lunch because I don't get a lunch break when I start at 12, if I'd just said no to the shift then I wouldn't have this problem.
      Oh did I mention that tomorrow before going to the sports fare at uni that I have to run into work to sign some forms? Wouldn't it make more sense for me to just sign them while I'm there on Friday...
      It seems like all I've done this summer is run between 2 jobs covering shifts. At least now that uni is starting back I won't have to take on extra shifts, but I'll still be working all weekend :(

    • I don't understand what just happend.

      5 years ago

      rebeccared

      I typed out a long explanation for what happend but I decided against it. I honestly don't even want to type it all out again - not even sure if I could explain it cause I seriously don't even know what just happend. Still can't work out if I'm angry or upset, could be both cause I sometimes get angry tears?
      Honestly I had only been in the house for 2 minutes before this all kicked off and I'm tired cause I've been working for 9 hours but also kinda wired cause I need to be constantly focusing on what I'm doing at the pharmacy AND NOW I'M REALLY STRESSED OUT :(

    • My laptop is dying :(

      5 years ago

      rebeccared

      So yeah, it's been on it's last legs for a while. The screen has stopped working unless it's pushed back to the furthest angle it can manage, it randomly turns itself off, it no longer recognises it's own battery so has to be almost constantly plugged into the charger, 2 of the keys have almost stopped working and it now takes anywhere between 10 - 30 minutes for it to turn on...
      It's looking like it's time to buy a new one - which is something I don't want to have to do because I hate spending money AND I need to buy a notebook/chromebook/tablet for uni because it will save so much time and effort when it comes to annotating lecture slides (adding nodes to a downloaded powerpoint is sooooo much easier than trying to copy out the power point and add the extra stuff the lecturer is saying at the time) and will make studying so much easier.
      I'm hoping to get all the requests finished BEFORE the laptop decides to kick the bucket BUT I might not be able to if it continues in it's downwards spiral.
      SO BASICALLY THE REQUESTS MIGHT TAKE LONGER THAN EXPECTED TO GET FINISHED AND I'M SORRY. But fingers crossed the laptop is nice to me and behaves itself until I either get a new laptop or the requests are finished :)

    • I'm so tired!

      rebeccared

      Was working from 9am till 6pm today. That's the longest shift I've ever done at the pharmacy, I'm just the Saturday girl there and on Saturdays we only open till 1pm! When I used to work Saturdays at the gift shop it was 10am till 5.30pm, so I am used to long days but still, nothing compares to working in a pharmacy for 9 hours. It's just so busy but so FUN.
      I never thought I'd enjoy a full day shift as much as I enjoyed today. I love working there on Saturdays - sure it can be stressful and by 1pm I'm glad I get to go home but I really enjoy the work I'm doing and I learn so much everytime I'm there.
      It seems like I picked the correct career for me!

    • I have a mental block when it comes to drawing faces

      5 years ago

      rebeccared

      I just can't seem to get my head round it. Once every now and then I'll manage to draw a somewhat realistic face and then the rest of the time it's just weird cartoons or things that you could maybe call a face if you squint but we all really know it's not...
      So yeah, just keep that in mind when it comes to requests. I really have tried to make the face look acceptable just sometimes it doesn't work....
