Oh thank god it’s finally cooling off, sweet relief from the burning sun
when you want to draw but youre too stressed to do well on commissions and too guilt laden about the commissions thing to draw personal art so you just become an ouroboros of procrastination and anxiety
Me right this very moment
ouroboros of procrastination and anxiety, wow, that’s like, perfect
i opened both my water and my electricity bills at once
needless to say i was shocked
this is my post you get out
You know what, today I got declined for an art job I had been putting all my hopes and dreams into for the past month.
And surprisingly, I feel really okay. Better than I have in a while.
I know what I need to do, where I need to put my priorities again, and that I need to get back to what I was doing before, when I was happy, and not obsessively checking my email every five minutes and slowly slipping into despair.
Yeah, my art needs work, but I am nineteen years old and I’m learning something new every day and improving all the time, and that job? I’ll get it one day. I’ll get something that will let me have more time, energy and happiness, and maybe pay me enough to improve my standard of living too.
I got denied for that job, and instead of being upset, I said, ‘you know what, since that’s not a thing, it’s time to get back to work’.
So this is what I did today. Leaving the coatl’s mask on to hide even more surprises. I’m gonna do my best, and get back to my best. One step at a time. ‘No’ is not the end of the world, and today was a reminder of that. ‘No’ is just a signal that I need to keep going, just not in the direction I wanted. But I’ll be getting somewhere in the end, yanno. Just gotta keep going.
That’s the attitude that will make your career! Best of luck to you, if I can be of help let me know. :)
This does go for all animals, but since dog behaviour is my comfort zone and since most of these posts I see are of dogs being stressed or mishandled I’m going to focus on dogs. Anyone else who is more knowledgable on other animals expression of stress and behaviour are super…
This is the 21st century. It’s time to evolve mankind’s behaviour towards dogs, and other animals.
This is a good place to start spreading the word.
