Evening everypeoples, I am coming to you from the opposite side of the country right now. Wait, I went to the opposite side of the country from my hometown at the beginning of the year, but since I live there now, does my hometown now count as the opposite side of the country? Semantics, how do they work?
Anyway, not too much to talk about, I’m planning on taking my holidays very easy, because when they are over I’m going to be diving head first into the job market, and isn’t that going to be just a lovely time? I am looking forward to finding a job that suits my skill set, but given the nature of the workplace these days, I may just have to hope for a miracle. Still, plenty of free time to beef up my portfolio while I’m waiting for replies to the tidal wave of emails I’ll be sending.
So far, holidays have been very chilled, it’s been great seeing my parents again after nearly six months, and settling back into my old house has been very natural, although being back in a single bed is rather jarring; I’m used to having space to stretch out and contorting my body to fit a cat somewhere on the end. I’m also without most of my artistic tools, such as my computer and light table, but all I really need is my sketchbook and my notebook to satisfy my creative outlet. I’m also catching up on a lot of the graphic novels I subscribed to, really should change the delivery address now that I’ve made the choice to move out permanently…
I’ve also been prepping for my upcoming D&D game with my uncle’s family in Joburg; after my first taste of being a Dungeon Master, I am really really keen to do it again. Over the past few days I’ve made my own DM screen, dusted off and repainted my old dice box, and am currently making quick-reference notes for all the encounters likely to happen in the campaign. It just saves me having to scroll through pdfs repeatedly, which was a problem I had with my first game; I actually ended up making some of the encounters too easy because with all my jumping around I forgot to include half the monsters. Well, not this time; my next set of adventurers are going receive multiple goblin boots to the groin and they will like it, dammit!
Also, I’m going to see the new Star Wars on Saturday, so no spoilers please!
That’s all for this week, hope the holidays are treating you all well.
Ciao for now.
