I can’t believe it’s been more than two years since I last wrote here. Time keeps disappearing under my feet. Who would have thought that I’d be here in New York writing this? Or that I’d already graduate from my AAS degree in Graphic Design? Everything just swept by, and it’s sad that I never got to chronicle these last two crazy years of my life.
I haven’t been writing in my journals the way I used to back in college. And the instances of college writing were even less frequent compared to high school. It seems that the older I get the harder it is for me to pick up my Pilot G-Tec C4 (yes, it has to be that pen! haha) and just write down whatever comes to mind. Often times I find myself with pen poised on a blank line not knowing what to write. And then I put the cap on my pen back on and close the journal again without having ink touch paper. Tsk tsk. So, I thought maybe it’s time to type instead. Maybe I could jumpstart the habit this way.
Anyway, I mostly decided to resurrect this blog because I’m just incredibly bored here at our empty apartment now. Cel and Yessa flew off to Long Beach, California this morning for a trade show for Yessa’s boss and so I’m all by my lonesome for a week. I thought I’d be better at biding my time, but hehe, I now have nothing to do except maybe eat some of that Fage Yogurt that’s tempting me all the way from the fridge. Of course, there’s also my bed calling. I could always tuck myself in early and get some 11 hours of sleep before I have to wake up for work! Haha, but that’s too much, even for the sleepyhead that I am! So… I’ll just have to find myself something to do.
I did actually resurrect another hobby today. Drawing! I dusted off my mini sketchbook and got my pencils out of my art toolbox. I thought I’d be really sucky by now, not having drawn anything really for a year, but surprise surprise, I still have the hang of it! Yey! I guess it’s like riding a bike then, you never really unlearn it. You just get back on and ride. I kind of missed drawing… just tuning everything out and focusing on light and shadow… so I think I’ll keep drawing a little something every other day from now on. 🙂
