So I’m kind of trying to work myself into a less-lazy state of mind for the rest of the summer. Obviously, that’s not gonna be too easy for me…but it’d better work out before school starts or else I’m gonna be screwed.

As I may have mentioned previously, I’m going into freshman year. I’ve figured out that I’m more of a “glass is half empty” type, especially when it comes to anything school or work related. So there are people out there who will look back at their high school years as the golden eras in their lifetimes…But the way I look at it, these few months of summer are my last months of freedom until I go off to college (and don’t get me wrong, college is a lot of work…but getting in to college is what I’m worried about). Looking on the bright side, though, I’ve now got my ADHD meds to help me stay focused, and I have my trusty friends to support me.

On a less existential note (not very existential to begin with, I know), I’m still trying to keep up with my artwork. Drawing’s something I do for fun, but I don’t really get around to drawing much, even though it’s a lazy summer. Besides, my dearest mommy CRUSHED MY DREAMS when I was about 10, by saying something like, “Don’t waste your time drawing. I know you like it, but you’re never going to be as good as your dad.” (daddy’s a professional storyboard artist). Mommy probably doesn’t even remember every saying that to me, but TRUST MEH MOMMEH, I DO.

Anyways, there was a 40% off art supply sale at Graphaids Art Supplies yesterday, which I’ve been looking forward to all week because I wanted to buy a bunch of copic markers. So mommy takes me there, and only let’s me buy FIVE MARKERS. Ah well, it’s better than nothing. So yeah, hopefully I’ll be using those new markers to color my drawing whenever I get around to it.

Today was the Obon Festival for the local Japanese American basketball youth club. My team’s job was to fry and sell wontons to raise money for the club, which–to put gently–was something I really was not particularly looking forward to. Much to my surprise, it was a lot of fun. I was probably born to be a salesperson.

Yehp. That’s it for today! Dad’s yelling at me to get off, so I miiiggghhhttt see you tomorrow. Possibly.

Drop by to ask questions, leave comments, or just to say hi. I’d appreciate that.
