I'm absolutely terrible at updating my journal. Anyhoo, summer has arrived and I've been waxed, styled and dressed to impress. Now I have no money. Boo hoo. Why do all the good things in life have to make you a pudgey pauper?
Last time I updated I said my tablet broke. I've obviously had it replaced, and /now/ I'm in need of a new laptop or computer. This ol' lappy has lasted me almost 5 years and it's been sputtering for a while now. In the past week or so, it's been truly terrible. It's so clogged up it won't let me use Photoshop with any files bigger than..well...small. Naturally now that I'm unable to fully utilise the program, I'm feeling creative. The fan's been broken for a while, and a cooler doesn't do enough. Turns out there's a whole load of unaccounted used up space, and no one I've consulted has been able to find the solution.
In the end, it comes to me needing to get myself a new machine that can handle my art and maybe some games. It'd be nice to be able to play them again. I know bugger all about laptops or PC's etc, so I don't have a clue where to start. I don't have a load of money to spend all willy-nilly, and that sorta puts a damper on things, but eh.
I gotta get a job. I'll be back to Uni in Sept, and was waiting till then to start job hunting, because I'm a bit all over the place this summer. I'd do commissions, but I'm horribly hesitant about that. While I know everyone has their own art hangups, I'd feel seriously bad about taking peoples money for my art. It's just not there yet.
Doesn't help that I keep skipping from style to style.
Oh! And apologies for lack of turtley goodness. I've been on a major Bleach kick of late. I've not even seen past episode 23! Read the manga though...Nom nom nom! Least I've resisted doing Naruto fanart...for now. But damn if Kakashi doesn't rock my socks.
