Dang, I can’t believe we’ve already wrapped ourselves around to another Friday! I have some crazy sleep issues, so I was up super early and cranked out a few miles on the good old tready. A bit over 8.5 to be more precise and while I was captain sluggy sweat I did my core and abs.
I always feel better working out in the morning. I’m the girl who likes to roll out of bed, into the shoes, and get things moving. Well, that is after I dally around for about 20 mins on the computer to give my nice little intestines some time to work things through if you know what I mean. Gotta have a little time before, nothing worst than pinching those buns for dear life while on your run.
Okay, nice TMI to start your morning. So after that I was in a sort of drawing mood; I usually like to have some kind of image or inspiration in mind when I set out to sketch, but I was thinking and Google imaging around and nothing really leaped out at me. Still, I was heck-bent on doing something. I had looked at random pictures for too long hoping to come up with an idea to then not come up with something; sort of like going past the point of no return. Or sitting through a movie and even though it’s bad you make yourself sit through it because you’ve already wasted over an hour and you might as well just finish it off.
Actually, I’ve never gotten up and left a movie theater…probably more because I’m way cheap and if I’m paying that much I’m going to see the whole dang thing. But I know some people who walk out regularly, I guess their time is worth more than the ticket price. Do you do that, leave a movie if it sucks? How sucky does it have to get for you to pull out?
The same goes for workouts I guess too. Days when you’re really not feeling it or maybe don’t even want to start…we all get ’em. Usually to get my butt moving I tell myself I’ll just start and if 5 minutes rolls by and I want to stop, okay. I know it’s a lie going in but eh, it gets the ball rolling and once 5 minutes passes I either feel fine or tell myself just to do 5 minutes more, etc. until I end up doing what I had intended. All about those lies…baby!
Well, nice little tangents I’m going on today. Well, since I don’t walk out of movies and I wanted to draw something I did. Not sold on how much I like any of it, but we all have those quasi-star movies and thus quasi-star showings of ourselves.
I’m a bit of a perfectionist and sometimes that can bite me in the butt. If I don’t like how something is turning out I can spend way too much time on details, certain details that is a good thing but on other really minor things, sometimes I just have to tell myself to stop. If I don’t I’ll never finish anything.
But distinguishing which details are minor enough to foggeddabout can be tough. Also, I don’t like showing things that are sucky, but I’ll go out on a limb and try to let that go too. We all have a spectrum of stuff we do…the things we really love and are proud of, the ones we hate, and then tons of stuff that in the middle. So be it. Live and let be.
So I’ll show what I came up with, also out of laziness on my part because I’m out of things to write. Bwahaha. Be warned because I HATE doing faces and really suck at them. I’m working on that, but it’s a weakness I’m trying to get better at. The eyes always look kinda freaky-weaky.
Here’s the sketches I was doodling away on. I sometimes like the loose sketch lines better than the finished ones because sometimes the harsh lines look too neat/clean/naked to me.
Here’s the end result of one of the sketches. Hate her face, but watevs.
And that’s all for me today!! If you haven’t read up the latest Fairy Tale that is sure to be turned into the next Disney feature film, do take a gander…it’s got running, fro-yo and dare I say a pretty kick@$$ cast! 🙂
1) We kicked June to the curb, what’s on tap for your July?
Actually something pretty big for me but I’m gonna wait and share later. Sorry, I’m lame like that.
2) Bad movies, bad meals, bad dates? Do you walk out, not finish, climb out the bathroom window or do you force it through to the end? Also, if you have a really awesome bad date (or anything I guess) anecdote do share!
2) Do you have trouble distinguishing which details are too minor to sweat from the ones that really matter?
