Well, I have fallen back to earth and I am alive again. You may have seen me submit two sketches for a three part commission I've been working on. I can't believe that I've let the commission take so long, but it's because I've had a lot of trouble getting proportions correct. To rectify this, I've decided to take a drawing from the imagination class since I've already taken a figure drawing class and can basically draw anything I see if I take my time. Hopefully this will help me get into the swing of things again. I hope that I'll have a lot of sketches and what not to upload here from the class. After I finish that class, I also have another class for drawing sexy pin-up girls. I'm REALLY looking forward to that class and I'm looking forward to finishing this one up too.
Today I've been drawing my heart out and so my wrist is really starting to bother me. I have also started a web development class so I will soon be able to create my own websites and will even be able to give you guys CSS tutorials as well as awesome skins and what not for journals... hopefully. I am hoping to get into freelance work in my free time.
It's official. I am on my way to finally
being a college graduate. I will graduate with a degree in Biology, which isn't what I want to do, but at least I'll have graduated. I plan on following it up with a Master's Conversion from Biology to Computer Science. I hope then to take my PhD in Computer Science, and also do a PhD in Biology because I have an idea that I want to finish up before I leave biology behind.
In the mean time I have a lot on my plate. As you guys know I am currently offering commissions. Those are closed until I finish the other Commissions on my list... there aren't many, but with everything going on I only want to take on a few people at a time. I easily take on too much (it's in my personality to want to help everyone and do everything.) So thank you all for understanding
I only have one week left of my core membership, so I guess this will be one of the last really pretty journals you'll see for a while (unless some nice deviant tops me up). I can't spend money on this site anymore because I am unable to find any work. (That's why I'm taking classes to try to freelance my way to keeping our apartment.)
Things have been a little rocky here. I've been searching for my birth family. I was born Melissa Ashley Simkins. If anyone knows anything about a woman who had to give a daughter born 17 April 1992, please let me know. It seems that my mother has dropped off the face of the Earth and I'm really hoping that I can eventually meet her or any siblings that I have. It turns out that my birth father may have died already. I really hope not because I'd really like to get to know him and my mother; if they want to know me that is.
The other thing is that my husband has been having a lot of trouble with university and his mood swings. We are currently seeking help, although things have calmed down lately now that he takes his depression medication a lot more regularly. We are doing our best to keep things together. He has a lot of work coming up and I have to be right there to help him so he doesn't get overwhelmed. This week we need to get him prepared for an in-class exam and start two projects due in half a month. He also has to finish up his final year project. He thinks he's basically done, so I'm hoping that is the case.
Anyway, that's been the weekly update. Stay tuned. And thank you all for baring with my frequent absences. I know it can be a little annoying.
