There is Only Today

When I drew the red panda, I remembered when I drew a guinea pig and wrote “You look beautiful today” on the drawing, and hung it up in the kitchen. One of my roommates remarked that it should’ve just said “You look beautiful.” So what is wrong with “today”? Does it imply that were notContinue reading “There is Only Today”

Don’t Let A Bad Week Ruin Your Weekend

I’m sure you’ve had a terrible day, or a string of days at work. It wasn’t a single event that caused your stress and grief, not necessarily, but things going wrong just little by little.

And continued volunteering at the museum. And working. This has been detrimental to myContinue reading “Sharpening Your Axe”

Please Enjoy This Doodle of Me

I’m really worn out from work yesterday and had a bad night’s sleep. As such, I did want to do some more drawings via Gimp, but I just have no energy to do so. Actually, nevermind, I did sketch something. Please enjoy this doodle I enjoyed doing. My arms look like dough, but I’ve beenContinue reading “Please Enjoy This Doodle of Me”
