Remember how I said something along the lines of 'Life likes to throw curveballs'? ... I didn't say something like that? Huh.
Well, anyways, it looks like moving out is no longer a major priority. Long story short, some pros and cons are currently keeping me where I'm at. While moving out is the goal, I have plenty more time to prepare and save up before it happens. As of this moment, I have until my brother graduates and heads off to college. (A little more than a year.)
As of now, I'm working on some art projects to keep myself busy, and I'm hoping that keeping a schedule will help me get back into the swing of drawing regularly again. I've been enjoying one in particular, and I can't wait for you guys to see it when it's done. It's been a long time since I've really thought out what I want to draw before jotting it down-- usually when I draw, I just sit down and start drawing and boom. Done. I'm finally starting to enjoy drawing and creating things again.
In other news, I've been reading up on Botany for some Gardening inspiration this spring.
In other-other news, I'm learning to knit. Right now it feels kinda flimsy and awkward holding the needles-- I'm still working on my practice washcloth-- but it's been a lot of fun and has been helping me build up dexterity in my fingers. It's also surprisingly relaxing-- even with all the mistakes I've made thus far.
Life is weird; Staying positive and pushing forward.
