It seems a while since I did one of these, so time for an update.
First off, I successfully moved in during the first week of January. I've now been living here just over a month and seem nicely settled. It's great to have my independence back and actually get a chance to relax when I get home from work each day.
Sadly it's not all been smooth sailing - since getting my keys I've had to deal with a broken boilder, dead phone line, dead oven, problems with the carpets, a gas inspection and 2 gas meter faults. I look forward to the day where I don't have to spend an evening or 2 a week chasing someone to get something fixed.
Overall I'm happy with the move. For the most part my stress levels are down and I'm finding time in the evenings to do things to chill out like read a book or play on my ps3.
I continue to be fairly uninspired to make any sort of emotes. I simply have no ideas, no enthusiasm or inclination to open up my art program and even try. Whilst I'd like to think this isn't the end, I do wonder from time to time whether there's a future for me in the art form.
Though whilst on the topic of dA, a week today marks my 9th anniversary of being on the site. I never thought all of those years ago that I'd still be active after so much time. A lot has happened over the years, and the site itself has changed almost beyond recognition. I hope I will be around next year to mark my decade, but I guess only time will tell.
The other anniversary coming up this month is 1 year since I started my job. I've enjoyed the last year and have certainly learnt a lot, and I look forward to what the next year brings.
Work life has certainly been a little crazy recently. I've been temporarily loaned to a new department to help get them up and running, whilst still trying to keep on top of my normal workload. Right now I'm being handed jobs from about 8 different directions and it's just a matter of trying to juggle them and keep them all moving forward whilst addressing the most urgent.
It certainly means work is never dull, though it will be nice when things calm down a little.
Scouting is also keeping me busy as they released new badge updates at the end of January, so I have a load of resources to make/update. Other than that, there's not a great deal to note. Life keeps moving forward and I wake up each day wondering how the days slip by so fast.
How are all of you guys? What have you been up to lately?
That's all for now. <4
