The Case of Not Enough Time

Time is passing me by so quickly I don’t even realize. With a full time job and some freelance to-dos I had no time for image editing, drawing, designing or writing. Worst of all, I did not really have time for the Sacred Creatures, either.

As a result, Málna stopped talking to me days ago and “someone” stole my homeshoes. Feket lives in the laundry basket lately and grew some bellyfat as well. He is  -by the way-  huge. 6 kilogramms and not even a year old.  Maybe I should cut back on the meals. On the other hand, Málna eats a lot more and she is so small and skinny, she does not even look 6 months old. She already turned 2. As I said, time flies….. 🙂

As I promised, here are a few photos of the autumn colours. They are unedited. I could also blame this on not having enough time, but in fairness, they turned out to be the bests I’ve taken since I am learning photography. I really wanted to give you an insight on how it goes with the photo taking part, not the manipulation part 🙂

As usual, any feedback is welcome 🙂 (if you’d like to use any, please email me and I’ll send you the original size)

Weekly Life Update: Creativity and Water

On water:

It is high time that I gave some insight on how the water challenge goes so far. Well, it is a lot more difficult to manage from home than it is from the office.

At work I fall into a pattern, everything is scheduled and I just sit at an office table and work. No major distractions.

However, at the weekend we went shopping, cleaned the flat, visited Lukacs Bath and the grandparents, worked a lot and it just became harder and harder to manage.

I got so carried away with all the things I had to do that I only managed around 1.5-2 litres per day on Saturday and Sunday. Shame on me.

As an attempt to find a solution for this I downloaded an app called Waterlogged. It is not bad, but the free version lacks many useful options (e.g.: warning me every hour to drink). It is perfect for measuring the amount of liquid that is consumed though.

On creativity:

Not long ago, when I was whining about the fact that I am soooo-soooo handicapped at image editing by being mixed handed I got a little gift from life (and a very nice client of mine :-))

I am a strange creature, I am not only left handed but mixed handed, meaning that I do everything with my right hand, apart from eating and writing, which qualifies me as a lefty. Anything that is not a spoon, fork, pencil or pen literally falls out of my left hand but can not hold any of these items in my right… 😀

Now the issue is, that I can only draw and edit with my left hand, but can only control a mouse with my right one. Umm, yeah. That’s what I thought. So the only solution for this is a digital pen and tablet set. Being as broke as I am usually, a digi tablet was nowhere in sight.

Until the next morning, when I received an Amazon gift card from someone I do some work with 🙂 So I ordered my new Wacom Intuos and after some usual Hungarian hassle and paying an insulting amount for delivery, tax and customs, it arrived last Friday and I drew my first…..um…..Simon’s cat… 😀

Also, I took some photos over the weekend, here is two as teaser and I’ll show you the others in my next post. Keep tuned 🙂
