Awaking from Hibernation

Hey Everyone. I know it has been a while. Last month my seizures started up again and I had to get back on seizure medication. If you haven’t been on seizure medicine, it makes you sleepy until your body gets used to it. Basically, last month when I wasn’t in class I was sleeping, ie I slept the month of September away.

Other than a couple seizures, everything has been going very well. Class is fun. This past week we’ve been working on logos for our businesses. I’ve learned how to draw and redraw using Adobe Illustrator. I try to challenge myself by making the things I draw and the things I redraw more and more complicated. My only wish was that I had the money to get Illustrator on my computer at home. Unfortunately, hospital bills are the priority. However, I only have 8-12 months left on the various bills so that’s exciting.

As for the pups, they’ve never been better. I think Buddy is enjoying this cooler weather. The girls don’t seem to mind it either. That is except Haley, but she’s a momma’s baby and knows that if she shivers I’ll take pity on her and bring her inside. Spoiled brat.

Going back to Illustrator, I want to get good enough so that I can create my own comic strip or graphic novel type thing. It would be about dogs–naturally. I have a lot of ideas, but I have to get better to materialize these ideas. Maybe by Christmas break…

Fall Break was Thursday and Friday of last week. I hung out with a couple of my friends on Thursday and relaxed on Friday. Today, I’m just watching YouTube videos because I can’t think of anything else I really want to do.

Part of me wants to do a mini album. But about what? This is my problem. I have to thoroughly think a project out before I can start on it. It’s not a bad thing, but sometimes it is annoying. Sometimes I just want to do a random project and have no clue what I’m doing until I’m done. It’s just not in my personality. I need to step out of my creative comfort zone…one day…just not right now.

Well that’s about it. I’ll try to blog more often now that I’m awake more often.

Until next time…don’t let your sleeping owners lie.

Back to School

On the 10th I started classes at our Tech School. I’m taking Graphic Design. Thus far I’ve been enjoying it. The teacher is really sweet and my classmates aren’t too bad. With the exception of the teacher, I’m the oldest in both sections of the class. That being said, most of my classmates are high school students. I’ve gotten to know a few of them and have even befriended one or two. Still, I had been hoping that there would be another person closer to my age in my class.

Oh well…that’s fine. I find hanging out with the younger people refreshing and sometimes even amusing. I had forgotten what it was like answering to your parents 100% of the time; what it was like being punished, having my phone taken away from me (which is something that never happened, but probably because I never used my phone a whole lot except to call my parents).

I find that I prefer being an adult; going to bed when I want to; not having to worry about my parents taking my phone if I text after nine at night or before eight in the morning. I do have to say, being with these kids have made me appreciate being “old.” I would not want to go back in time and be a teenager again. Or even be in my early twenties for that matter.

I know, I’m weird. I’ve always been wired a bit differently. Despite battling with depression, I try to look on the bright side. I guess I do that because if I don’t, I’d probably kill myself.

I go to class all day, with an almost two-hour lunch between the morning session and the afternoon session. I worried about my dogs, but I don’t think they realize that I’m even gone. They spent most of the day outside prior to me going back to school and their schedule hasn’t changed much, if any, since I started.

Since class has started, I might not blog as often. I know, compared to what. It’s not that I have a whole lot of homework, but I sit in front of a huge computer screen all day and I don’t always want to be in front of one all evening as well. But you never know. I might have more to blog about.

Anyway, until next time…old dogs can learn new tricks, so have fun learning.
