I've been... busy. Yeah, busy just about covers it.

I'm not sure why or how it happened, it's just been one of those watershed kind of months where, counter to what my lack of freelance work is telling me, opportunity just seems to be EVERYWHERE. It's a little scary - I have a lot of choices to make and I'm letting my hind-brain make an awful lot of them.

I've signed on for the Noah Bradley Artcamp - a twelve week online course that will rocket me from enthusiastically untrained to drilled and enthusiastically unstoppable. 'Better' I guess is for you people to decide, but I've been wanting to take an online course for ages; I just thought I'd do it when I had a) time and b) money. And last week my hind-brain decided that the time is apparently now. I've been busy as hell since.

Other things - more personal things - have been popping up to in a 'Pick me! Pick me!' sort of fashion and I feel like a single mom rushing between triplets. I'm trying and repeatedly failing to institute a get-up-early rule. I'll get there, but probably when I have to.

Again, not sure why the sudden enthusiasm for personal projects. It's great - it's wonderful and exactly what I've been working toward with a kind of 'fake it till you make it' enthusiasm. I'm now genuinely invested and working and happy and leveling up and it's so unusual that it's freaking me out a little.

So yeah. Sh*t just got real.

Yeah, DA does that. It's trying to bump me off. How's Japan??

Japan is cold and expensive. But Chris is here until just after new years. So we're egging each other on and buying all sorts of crap. :D it's fun though!
