Hi everyone, just making a quick post as I haven't written since the moving-in post. I have just been spending most of my time seeking jobs (although haven't done so yet today) and attempting to sort my life out at the same time. I got offered a job at the local Chinese takeaway, but I'm also waiting to hear back from a nearby supermarket - so the nice takeaway people said I can get back to them once I've heard off the supermarket --- although I'm not sure how long itll be before I can hear back from them. Currently considering walking there and asking them how long I should expect to wait so that I can either be all excited or whatever or keep applying to lots more places.
Aside from the boring job search which partially consumed my life, I've been drawing a little bit too (although not enough - I need to work on improving my abilities!). I spoke to my tutor today about what I should be doing in order to prepare for the masters degree (starting 24th September) and he just told me to keep drawing as well as doing artist research. So I suppose I'll start working on that while I am searching for the ideal till-monkey style job.
In terms of mood and mental health things, I've been trying to keep really busy and as a result have been fairly mindless for the most part. I'm also considering switching to a full time course in order to further limit my bad-thinking time... more work and all might mean more focus and less time to be down during "holidays". One of the other reasons I don't reeeeally want to do a part time course is because some of my friends (who'll be taking their third year this time) will be leaving after one year and I am afraid of loneliness. Sure I will meet more people while I am here but... that plus other worries of mental stability and other things mean that I am leaning towards changing to full time. Oh, and I didn't mention the bit about getting impatient to travel the world. Possibly on a bicycle. Well, we'll see. Although one of the benefits of part time study may be that I'd be able to get a higher mark - more time and all that.
Ha... I said this would be a quick post but I really enjoy typing on this School of Art keyboard so I continue to write. What else? Well, there have been some strange revalations in my personal life which I will probably make some pictures about soon. These are positive things but over the past two to three months I've developed some sort of skeptism over the future and well... for when good things happen. I stopped expecting nice things a while ago so when nice things happen like they did the other day I feel quite uneasy about it all. Anyway, I'll post some comic or something about it on www.being-naked.tumblr.com and/or on here.
Lately I've been slacking on the comic front, since arriving in my uni town in fact. I don't know if it's because I don't *need* to make them anymore (as I now have an approaching degree to work for) or because I have been stuck in a drawing block. So I feel like I want to apologise for slowing down on it... it seemed like people could relate to it. Maybe I'll keep working at it but at a slower pace.
Well, thank you for reading.
