So I've been having a bit of trouble keeping my comeback streak on DA as long as possible, which was not long at all.
Okay seriously, I got infected by she had RSI and sneezed in my face, which also gave me RSI.
Now I had to sit out nearly half a year of not being able to draw, paint or laptopping.
By the way RSI is not contatious or anything, it was just a funny coinsedence that a view of my real life friends also had RSI in the same period and one of them is Drosera.
But you can skip the next alinea of this journal, in case you don't like to read through the 'it was such a depressing and hard time story blidiblabblaah'.
But it was very difficult, try to imagine your hands being cut off and you can't do anything else but watch tv and read.
now you must think that is something bearable right? but do this for 5 months and you'll be bored quicker than you can say schadenfraude. But that was my case, also being eager to draw and paint it was hard to drop it, but sadly I had to.
I also had to go through a lot of fysiotherapy and I also had to drop the last period of my school year which sucks, because I have to finish the unfinished business of this year in the next one. Drama, drama, drama, blabidiblablaaa.
Okay now the fun stuff . If you feel like you can't connect to the fun stuff and you like the skip through it because you can't stand postivity and you prefer reading about someones deep emotional stresses, be warned this next alinea is NOT for you.
I have been to Valencia, which lies in Spain by the way DUH! (but I first thought it was in Mexico ). But that is a story for another time.
Right now I have some works I have created to get back to painting and drawing. It's something different, but I have been really focusing on Aquarel since it's litterially painting with water. It is a very light technique and very sufficient to start with after a period of having Tendons pains. I've got 12 aquarels finished, 6 small sized studies and 6 bigger finished works. I still have some older works from past year waiting to be submitted.
At least it's save to say I AM BACK, but not as much as I want to. I can paint and draw a little again, but laptopping is still a bit difficult. I can go and write a journal once in a while and submit some works, but I won't be around here a lot. Laptopping is still something I am going to be carefull with, so I might not response to my messages. So I like to tell you that it has nothing to do with you, because I like your comments, so please don't let me discourage you to do so. I just have to think about my health.
If you are still eager to read about only my deep emotional struggles, you might as well STOP reading here. BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!
Right now something that happened to me was having a lot of time. So I started reading books, which may sound casual to a reader and uncasual and archievement like to a nonreader. But I like to share it anyway, because I used to read almost down to nothing. So I am going to give some book tips to you dear reader.
The first one which you should read, because you can't miss this one: The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. It is a fun story with some unusual mythology references that are as little known as Norse mythology was 40 years ago. It's the Jewish mythology and Arabic mythology and both mythologies blend in the story perfectly well in 19th century New York and it's multi cultural centres, that have been but do not exist anymore and are forgotten in time.
Another one I highly recomend is: the Name of this Book is Secret, which I am not going to tell you about, because it's a secret. And if you are eager to find out what kind of secret it holds you have to buy the book. Psss hey the secret is: ******** ******* ***** *** *********** ****
