So I have been really into the game on making mermaids lately…
And until today I couldn’t think of one thing I could do better than a mermaid could.
But then I spilled a big cup of iced tea on a drawing I was working on and very much realized something very important.
It would be very hard to draw underwater!!!
And If I couldn’t draw… I would be a very very sad illustrator.
I would personally like to say the following 2 things
1. I love patriotic Holidays.
2. I like days when I’m not so preoccupied with work, and tired from all the chaos that is contained in one office building that I get to draw.
This doesn’t happen very often nowadays.
So let’s get into this drawing. I won’t say anything sarcastic about the US, because it’s pretty cool and if it wasn’t for like 15,000 different cultures coming here to exist…. I know I certainly wouldn’t.
So Happy Birthday America, and for the next 48 hours everything will be fireworks, red white & blue, powdered wigs, and Alexander Hamilton look-a-like contests.
Also not having to go to work and getting to draw is so amazing that it hurts!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
I’m in the middle of a deadline and well in my new office no one really talks.
Which is good and bad.
Bad: I have to take extra time to find things out because everyone is too busy to ask…
Good: I have a lot of time to doodle… because everyone is too busy even to lunch!
Well one thing is I can say everyone seems very nice, especially on Fridays when they get to have lunch away from their desks :)
Work is a very boring place.
It just is. Actually, it really depends on who is there with you to make it a great experience. But they can’t be with you all the times…
When I’m at my desk for example I really have no one to chat with. So, I am prone to daydream ,and sometimes I carry that to other places in the office.
Namely, the restroom.
Now I’m going to refrain from 97% of the gross things and stories I can tell you about our restroom.
But one of the best features of our lavatory situation is that… the toilets don’t flush.
They just don’t.
You have to wait and flush the toilet 2-3 times to make sure that all your business is history. (And honestly, most people don’t)
So you have a lot of time to decide what you want to do…
I know people fix their hair, write a few texts…
But not me… I daydream.
Sometimes I practice bellydance arms. Sometimes I count the tiles.
Sometimes I pretend the grout lines are a tightrope to walk on.
And boy oh boy, do you have the time to perfect your balance in there.
I was devastated by the Scandal half season finale…
Mostly because I spent the last few months watching the entire season,and now I caught up and knew everything.
And much like everyone else… now I have to wait for new episodes… and that is the worst.
So finally, tonight I get to see what I’ve been waiting for since December… More Scott Foley!
Last week my mother made macaroni salad… and it was really good.
It gave me a new life goal:
It’s been really cold outside lately… and then I really put it in perspective:
Happy New Year!
I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season!
And I hope you have great hopes for the new year… Personally, I think my resolution this year is to try to follow through on things a lot better, and be thankful that my life has gone in the direction that it has. 2014 was definitely different and more of an adventure than I have had in years.
Thanks for everyone who made this last year wonderful… lets make 2015 even better
p.s. be more prepared to get more hilarious anecdotes from my new job… working in a big place makes for interesting characters.
Today is a wonderful day to be with family, and watch the yule log.
I always make my sister watch the yule log for at least one entire song. And today was even better because I tricked her into it.
I hope your day is lovely and all the things it should be.
And I hope you ate a lot, and drank a lot too.
I personally did, and now my pants are a little tight…. and I feel like that means I was a little bit successful.
