Had so many dreams for September, but some wrist pains caused by…clicking a mouse too much in Illustrator and XD??? and some general back pains caused by a poor work setup have put those plans back quite a bit. Honestly surprised it’s only been 15 days since I put myself on break, it feels like way longer.
Started working on a better ergonomic setup after that bit of annoying wake-up call. It can be hard, as a chronic penny-pinching cheapskate, but it’s one of those things you know you can’t keep bouncing back from like a teenager anymore. Waiting to hear if W*com releases some new tablets for the end of the year (hate them, but their products are damn sturdy), but a replacement for the ol’ tablet is definitely in the works. Can’t keep drawing on a 13HD forever (I think this thing has got to be at least 8 years old now, and god does it run hot.)
Long way of saying extended hiatus until then, but hopefully will bounce back come December or early next year. In the meantime, been watching a playthrough of Mass Effect again (getting emo about aliens) and pouring a lot of time into a personal DAoL wiki. Extended break isn’t a terrible thing, especially since the dulled compulsion to draw is giving some time for writing (and planning vacations), but I won’t deny that it isn’t a little annoying lol.
