So I finally got around to ordeing a SATA HDD enclosure to get files off of my motherboard dead netbooks/back up old files. I didnt realize how many tiny screws a little laptop can have! But I finally got the first netbook apart, and got the hard drive (160gig) and the "amazing" 512mb memory stick out (yeah.... will probably never use that again). Once I got around to looking at the files I had on my old netbook computer, I was surprised to see Little Tea for the Child in Me that I had done in 2011 (I thought the computer had died in 2010, but forgot it died about a week before finals of fall 2011). Oh the good ol memories of my last year of college...*sarcasm*
I was also surprised that I didnt have that many files on it: 290MB (565files). I must have cleaned 99% of them off in a previous purge, so I'll need to be on the look out for reboot-discs from that era. I did manage to redeem 2 old music files that I can't get online anymore, and 2 "new" music files that I had downloaded right before my computer died (and I didnt remember the artist to look at the music later). Soooo Yay! 4 "new" songs to listen to again! :3 I'll probably on netbook #2 tomorow. Ugh, all that effort for only 290mb?! I was expecting like 50gig or something....Maybe it's on the other netbook....
Computer woes aside, I've been working on a couple of watercolor projects. Just to say that I am working creatively! Yeah I procrastinate....but I'm trying hard not to. Although yesterday specifically..... I took a break to just to practice drawing hands because I still need practice ( take a peek here---> Untitled ). So this is a reminder to all aspiring artists out there: Even if you think you do a half decent job of drawing something, practice drawing what you hate/are not good at, so that you can improve. Cuz hands are the bane of my existence. Really. Well....most of the time. Although my left hand drawings are starting to improve....so I can't really call it the bane of my existence anymore. Bleh never mind...I'm just rambling now.
Life in general has it's ups and downs, and I'm just rolling with the punches. I just have to remind myself to not be so hard on myself and just to think of all the blessings in my life. It's so easy to fall in discouragements rut where I just want to curl up and let all the tears fall. I'm not perfect, and I need to accept myself as I am: human with faults that I need to work to correct, and dreams to work towards. I can't lose faith in attaining my dream....whatever that is....I still need to figure out.
One last side note: Since my DA subscription is almost over, I'm wondering if any of my viewers (who actually read my odd journals) have any suggestions on contests to enter that have DA subscription/points as prizes? Or should I just offer commissions and earn points that way to get a subscription (unless someone wants to give me a subscription for my birthday??)? I'm open for suggestions!
