I still am in fact but I missed this place so I'll try my best to post again !
Hope you all are doing well :)
(Here is a dumb lill' thing I scketched few days ago. This face brings me too much joy haha)
I'm feeling very "I love my followers" right now.
I've always been a very awkward person and I've never had very many friends in real life. I love having this site to go to talk into the void, but the void is full of caring people who will offer advice and well wishes. And I see the art and stories and photos and arts and crafts you guys share. It's so nice and fun and inspirational ♥
This is like my own little home on the internet that's more than just photo-sharing for attention. I genuinely care about my followers and I hope every one of you has the best out of life tbh.
I've desapeared again from here haaa...
I will come back soon I think ! I've been working a lot on some commissioned works, while still getting drained with moving out (there is still a lot to do in terms of cleaning the place and tidying my stuff) but also with an issue with one of my friend (I think I will talk about it here at some point because this situation is devoring me alive and I need to let it out somewhere...)
I hope you are doing well, you taking time to read :)
Have a lovely day !
this was for that style-bending art challenge! basically, i asked my art friends what things were distinct for my style and i had to create a piece of art without any of them. they said blocky and painterly brush strokes, the colors red and blue and brown, and people. came up with this in the end- there are some bluish and brownish shades, but they're almost all just fun uses of greys, dark yellows, and the surrounding colors. the closest i got to brown was a khaki beige-ish color.
I looove paying lots of money to my insurrance so they don't cover my shower glass wall that exploded by itself in my old appartment !
Since that type of shower is not sold anymore, they need to replace not only the glass wall but the whole shower :))) Just the shower itself is already 300€ and I also need to add the person who is going to do the work of changing everything !
Add to that again 150€ of money I apparently owe my landlord, half my rent even if I won't be in that f*cking appartment this month since I already gave back the keys (= 250€) , my new rent of 300€ and all bills that come with it.
I'm going to drown

Also, side note
I already said it but I LOVE the fact that I can talk here without having people I know read (for some reason)
It's like some sort of therapy journal for me, with sometimes someone answering me ;w;
I should do some journaling here, but with crappy drawings. That's a cool idea.
So you know :
I'm a bit quiet because it was decided that I'm going to move out !
A lot happened these last two weeks and now I packing nine years of my life to move back in my childhood hometown, 250km away from the big city where I lived for now.
As I'm bad at handling changes, this one is nerve wrecking.
My family found me a lil' city house with a garden for a cheap price and I will receve their help as I really need it right now.
I also so happy to not be far away anymore from them and more importantly from my grandma who I couldn't see much these past years.
I hope it helps me get back on track and reduce my fear for my own future a bit.
It's little vent time !
I'm quiet again haaa...
I'm a situation where I'm finally realising how my life is crumbling around me and I don't knwo what to do, I feel helpless.
Everything is too much right now.
I planned that 2020 was the year I finally could start my business and gain some money and have my life less precarious.
I did not realise so many issues until now. Last december I got a diagnosis for some of my mental issues and I did not realise it was a handicap in my life but also that I can't really work a "normal" job.
I'm so precarious that I desparatly need money so I should run and get watever job I can. But it would mean getting more and more sick and burn out and... I don't want to go back there (I'm still in it, it's just less vicious than before)
Getting known on the internet is hard, getting people to want to commission you is hard.
As for my health, for now I also need money to pay for therapy and that not possible right now easer.
I live in a place that got my health worse, I want to move out sooo badly but with my precarious situation, with no money and job, landlords don't want me.
And cherry on top of the cake, my landlord is selling where I live so the next one will possibly kick me out.
So much fun this year !
My family is worried sick, and I too since I don't know what to do anymore. They ask questions to which I don't have answers.
I'm tired. I will keep going, I just want some answers for once, or just that things can unlock a bit.
In that society, when you are poor, sick or both it's so hard to get back up, have a stable life. And I say that while I live in a country that help a bit anyway on some aspect.
My true problem with participating in capitalism?
Not enough time to vibe man. Always have to be on a time schedule. Can't just let my brain go and do its own thing without that in the back of my mind. We have work in an hour and 45, but we gotta leave 15 minutes before then to get there on time. Gotta stop anything that we're doing 15 minutes before that because we have to be perceivable in a pleasant light to strangers. When I get home I have anywhere from 2 to 6 hours (depending on how much time I want tomorrow) to do all the things I need to do before bed (eat, hygeine, socialize, tend to pets).
And when I do have a day off thats not dedicated to anything in particular, Im usually insanely worried I'm not being productive enough on the things I spent all week angry that I wasn't able to do (which ultimately takes away from doing that thing). Even if that is a product of being tired and not being able to go the speed I had been going all week on my day off. I have to continually remind myself that sometimes there just isn't enough energy or time available to me and I am correctly prioritizing things. Paying rent and bills is important. Im aware of how the system is trying to trap me and keep me in this state where I haven't the energy to act out or be creative because thats dangerous on a massive scale. It drives consumerism as I ever strive for more self actualization I'll never achieve serving the capitalism that both hinders and allows my survival.
It makes the dream of working for myself so much more tantalizing, and I think about it often. But selling yourself on your own merits leaves you even more prone to the crushings of capitalism. You can work your hardest and still not make it, even if you did everything """right""".
I used to think that the world was just something built for a different type of person because I never fit in it quite right. Now I know the truth.
The world was intentionally not built for me. It was built to control me.
