Yah. Been a week almost. I think posting this on my blog is enough. It doesn’t matter because people don’t realize your missing until, like maybe a month later or even longer. I figure this because I don’t notice this myself. Your newsfeed is spammed all the time anyway. There is people who post more than once a day or those who post a few times a week or month, which was me. But I comment on other’s profiles every now and then. There is a fine line though, of using it too much and not using it at all. I think Facebook is pretty useful. Keeps me up to date, so I want to be a part of the network. At the same time, I don’t want to be addicted to it or attached. This is one of the reasons why I disconnect every now and then.
Well, it was a distraction that needed to be cut from my life momentarily. I almost feel very empty inside… The internet is so much more than it seems when there is Facebook. I think it’s because you post links and share with others that it seems more than it is. Needless to say, I have managed to cut down much of my time. I realize that if I am procrastinating or checking email, the #1 thing I do is go to facebook. I’d type it into the url even if it’s not bookmarked.
If it wasn’t for my getting sick or Wonder Con, I think I would have been much more productive (OR looking for a roommate — which has been a success…! Yatta!). If I don’t think about the fact that working 24/7 kills me a little bit more on the inside…. >____<;
No, but seriously, it does. You go insane. And it’s proven that illustrators who freelance and work in their own studio without seeing other people become lonely and crazy (well, they become somewhat bipolar). I all ready feel it and I haven’t even been in the real world yet. But then again, that’s why I’m in SF right now. Can’t really undo being crazy either, you just kinda have to live with it and make do.
In any case, here is my latest creature design:
Guess I should have spent more time on this, but I’m so sleepy….
