If we were having coffee… the first thing I would say is, “Happy St. David’s Day!”. I’m from Wales, and my daughter attends a Welsh medium school so we celebrate St. David’s Day pretty heavily. She even wore the little Welsh lady outfit to school on Friday, which you can see in this little comic I made for you. I wonder how many more years she’ll happily wear this to school for, I’m thinking next year will be the last.
It was a rough week at first, getting back into the routine of school after my daughter had been off school the week previous because it was half term. I’m rubbish with altering my routine, but thankfully, mentally I’ve still been pretty good, I’m just suffering a bit physically. This is probably the longest time I’ve been in a normal phase of my mood disorder for years, I’m guessing the new medication I’m taking, Sertraline, on top of the Quetiapine I take at night is really helping me.
As I’ve been feeling really good mentally, it’s given me a lot of hope so I’ve actually been making the most of the feeling of awesomeness and been concentrating my efforts on my comics. I just need to learn how to complete them a little faster so I can keep on top of them, at the moment they take me a few hours each. I think I need to watch a few YouTube tutorials on Affinity Designer (The program I use to draw comics on my Mac) to learn some more skills. I’m completely self taught, the internet can be such a brilliant learning tool.
I’ve been gaming a lot less this week, mostly because I’ve been concentrating on my comics instead, and in terms of my free time, I have to choose between gaming or drawing, that is until I learn how to complete my comics a little faster. However, right now I’m bored of most of my games anyway, and am waiting impatiently for the end of March to come so I can play Borderlands, and Battlefield Hardline on my Xbox One, I’m so excited for these games!
I also had some pretty awesome news this week, I’m going to be taking part in another conference! I really enjoyed being a part of the “People Factor” conference, where I spoke in front of two hundred people, so I’m really excited for this new one. I think it will be even better because I know exactly what to expect so hopefully I’ll be a little less shaky with my nerves! I will be talking about my eating disorder and my recovery from it in order to help and give hope to the other patients of the NHS.
My little one also had some awesome news this week, she came first for her handwriting in the Eisteddfod! An Eisteddfod is a whole school competition type event which was part of the school’s St. David’s Day celebrations. She was really happy and excited to show me her certificate when I collected her from school on Friday, and we celebrated with a movie, manicures and a chip shop dinner. Little one makes me beam with pride on a daily basis.
I think I’ve decided that I’m going to focus all my energy on this blog instead of my other one. I just have too many limitations in time with all the projects I want to do, and it’s better to have one awesome blog instead of many rushed and incomplete blogs.
I hope you all have a Happy St. David’s Day, even if you’re not Welsh. 🙂
I loved the idea of a coffee share, so I just had to get involved, if you would also like to get involved or have a look at the other blogs taking part please check out Part Time Monster’s blog 🙂
