Scoffs, Shrugs & Other Thoughts

'fly away'
Just some thoughts that might or might not be a good idea to let out but if there is one place a person can complain without having someone tell them not to complain, this is it.

01/ I tried out the kindle for a couple of weeks but had to send it back because the screen keeps freezing and whenever I start it up again and in working order, the battery drains itself in just a few hours and I wasn't even using it. I charged it several times in one week and I didn't even finish reading a single book. It could be that I was unlucky and got a bad one. I'm thinking of waiting for a newer model before getting another one but I haven't decided yet.

02/ You know your computer is really old when you need an adapter for your adapter in order to connect to any gadgets or maybe technology is just too quick for me. I really do need to get a new computer but I really hate the idea of having to readjust to a new computer and having to upgrade software that will cost more than the computer itself and not to mention all the new adapters I will need to get since the new computers no longer have all the features I use. 

03/ I'm thinking of getting rid all of my dvds and trade them for books. Honestly, I don't watch dvds much these days and my dvd player kind of have a temper where it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't for no reasons. And there are movies/shows that are only on dvds so I can't get rid of all my dvds. Even if I go all digital, I still need something to store the files so basically there is no such thing as going completely digital.

04/ I procrastinate like crazy all the time and sometimes I don't even know why. The above artwork 'fly away' started 7 years ago and is only finished last week. You probably won't believe it but it's true. I don't know why I take so long to finish this and many other projects. I guess the motivation just isn't there. It used to be when I work on something, I would work on them until they're done but these days, I only talk about getting things done and not do them.

05/ I have come to realize how much I dwell on mistakes. Whenever I made a mistake, I would think on it endlessly even when the problem is resolved or even when there's absolutely nothing I can do about it. I don't know why I do it but it's a habit I can't seem to break.

06/ I also realize how when you're cranky from lack of sleep because some creature choose to croak/chirp every single night until 5 am, every problem feels like a big world problem even when I know it's not. So don't mind me if I complain just a little too much or I repeat myself just a little too easily or I respond to things a little too slow.

07/ I used to have a virtual space to sell prints of my art at Society6 and they pretty much does all the printing and shipping but I closed that up or rather I just deleted the art works. I thought I might start that again but I don't know if there is any interest. You can't just have a shop, you have to promote it constantly or else nothing gets sold. Frankly, I really hate promoting. I'm not on social media so I don't really spread news around like other people. I don't suppose I could get someone to promote my work in exchange for design services? Just a thought.
