I swear, I'm not dead. Just lazy and floating around quietly.
I bet you guys aren't dead either. Just staying silent and looking at stuff, like this journal for instance.
Then, you realize: "Oh, I haven't done anything in six months to announce my presence. Oops."
Unless, that's just me. ANYWHOOO...
During these long vacation times, you'd think people would become more active because there is nothing to distract them from accomplishing things that they couldn't do before because of their lack of free time. Or at least, that's what I expected.
I've always been lazy, but even when I'm enjoying my time doing nothing, you'd think that at least a fraction of the time would be spent on hobbies. Oh well. I'm heading towards my senior year. I'm probably going to be pretty busy, so I'm just lazing around while I can.
I'm learning how to use Blender. I've been wanting to create 3D stuff since... Last year? Woo. It's going pretty... okay. I could be better, and maybe I'll start making my own stuff by the end of the month. Or at least, that's the plan. Well, the plan is that at some point I will create a 3D model of Icicle the Penguin
. I've held off drawing traditionally just for that reason, but that's probably a dumb idea, plus I'm getting rustier on my drawing skills. My little cousin is complaining, and he insists that I teach him even though I'm still trying to learn too. Maybe I can try posting again next week? It's been a a year or so...
Well, I have three weeks left before school starts. I would have gotten here sooner if I wasn't so intent on avoiding this website. Once procrastination hits, it usually takes a while before I shake it off. In this instance, it took... a month. I would get spurts of motivation, but for some reason, I decide to be stupid and ignore those urges. (WHY...)
I've also decided that instead of using my calender just for remembering birthdays, I should write down what I did that day. It's sort of the opposite of planning. Instead of writing it down and doing the thing, I do the thing and write it down. It's been awesome, I've done more things doing improvisation rather than planning it out.
Planning has never been my thing, especially when I write it down or announce it. That being said, it makes me question why I'm writing this down in a journal... But hopefully I'll kick that bad habit away. If I don't, then I might as well just shut up, but staying silent for too long is a terrible thing.
So yeah, long time no see. I'd like to think I've matured... by 4%. I guess that's what you call progress.
