All right! Hello again my lovelies. Hope you are all doing well. I have updates for you, just like I promised. I wanted to update earlier, but it has been hot here, and I just didn't want to sit in the computer room and suffer while I type out a “long” journal entry.
So, firstly I'll let you know about my gums. I am happy to say that, for the most part, the pain is gone. Apparently, I had an enormous cut right down my gum line; horizontally. It was cut deep enough that I could touch my bone. 0_o The dentist doesn't know what it was caused from, and neither do I BUT, I suspect that I must have cut myself while flossing. I have a really deep mouth, but small lips, so I can't open my mouth very wide, making flossing the back of my teeth really difficult. So I'm thinking I may have cut myself trying to push the floss between my teeth near the back. It makes the most sense to me anyway. The cut is healing though, and that is a relief. My only issue is that now the muscles in my neck and shoulder are suffering. The stress of having that gum pain caused the majority of my muscles to gather knots. I've been working at them for the last couple of days, and I'm sore from digging into my neck and shoulder in an attempt to smooth out the knots, but there are still so many of them. >_>
In other news, I have a cold. Bleeeh. I haven't had a cold in a couple of years now, but this one must have been uber determined. I just really hope I don't give it to my husband because he can't afford to miss work. He is the only one running his department right now because of a bunch of department rearranging his company is doing. So he honestly can not take a day off, unless he is like, dying. I'm going to shove several fruit smoothies down my throat and hopefully that will speed up my recovery.
My art has really picked up these last two weeks. I know I still haven't posted anything, but I will. As I said, the computer room has been hot, and most of my art has only been inked. I suppose I could post the inked versions, but when it comes to the adoptables I made, I don't think they would sell as well without colour... I hate colouring on this computer because I am using a mouse, and the mouse has a habit of double clicking at times. Makes things difficult... You also may be wondering why it is taking me so long to make these adoptables. Well, for one, they are not point adopts, they are for money. Secondly, I am not recycling the same pose, or the same design, with color/pattern differences. Each adoptable has taken me 2-3 days to complete, and that is just to the inked stage. When I design characters, I'm pretty sticky about the way the look. My OCDness requires a “balance” for each character. I can't really explain it, but I feel sorta like my designs have weight, and depending where each feature is on a character, I need to balance all designs in a left to right, up and down, and diagonal direction... I know. I'm weird. But I can't help it... >_> I've always designed characters this way. It is just how my brain works I guess. XD
So, I've decided that I want to pay off my debt as soon as possible. Yes, I know everyone wants this, but I mean like, I'm actually going to take action. When all is said and down, I'll have 5 jobs. I know that seems impossible, but it isn't when you are only doing jobs that require you to work 1-2 times a week. I'll be cleaning for my mom once a week, sorting my dad's files for his company 1-2 times a week, I have my Pizza 73 job, I am getting involved in a nail company that makes really nice nail art, and lastly I will be holding Reiki Level 1 classes. I took all 3 Reiki levels, so as a Master I can now teach it to others. There are already 3 people that have asked, and several times at that, when I'll be holding my first class, and they are actually waiting for me and haven't gone to anyone else. Sooooo I really need to get on that. I'm also hoping to start a blog, but there is no guarantee I'll get paid from that. Would be nice, since I love to just write about this sort of stuff, but there are so many blogs that competition is fierce.
Well, I don't really know what else to say beyond what I've mentioned already. So I guess this is it for now! Such a short journal for me, I know.
Anyway, until next time guys, “I'm up, over, and gone!”
