Update 1: Not smoking
Yes, I think I'm doing pretty great, actually. I never picked up a single stick of cigarette ever since I posted that status that I would stop smoking. It's my 2nd month now, and most of the withdrawal symptoms have either disappeared, or maybe I've just started to learn to completely ignore them. Either way, I'm doing pretty great. I'm not about to tell other people to stop smoking as well, though. Update 2: Weight loss
A couple of days after I decided to quit smoking, I put on my running shoes and went to school (where I work as a librarian) 2 hours earlier than working hours and ran for no reason. I just went and did it and have been at it for 2 months now. I've gained stamina, and I can now run for 3km without stopping. Lol, pussy, I know. But you should've seen me when I first started. I thought I was gonna die the first half kilometer, lmao. As a bonus, I started hitting the gym a week after I started running. I can now proudly do proper extended leg lifts on the dip bar for 2 sets of 20 reps. I'm not gonna put in detail the rest of my routine here.
First couple of days, I weighed around 59.3kg, a bit overweight for a girl my height. I've started to see and feel the difference. I can walk longer distances. I used to absolutely HATE field excursions, you know, because of all the walking. Now I can last a whole day of it, no sweat. Also, I can begin to see the shape of my shoulders again, so, yay slimming down! However, seems like my weight is pretty slow in going down. Probably because the fats are getting replaced with muscle weight.... or maybe all I'm losing is water weight? I sure hope not. That's less than what I was hoping for. Welp, just gotta keep trying... and cutting down on the chow.Update 3: Color pencils
Yyyyeaaaah, I'm still working on that. I'm enjoying (?) drawing with my new Polychromos set, but I still suck at it. I tend to rub the color in too hard until I either warp or completely destroy the paper. That's not good. Also, for some reason the colors turn out very different when I scan my work. I do not understand it. For now, I just settle for taking pictures of my work. It looks closer to how it should look like. I hope I can get commissioned for those kinds of works so I could get more practice.Others
OMG you guys. Commission me please, lmao. After several months of scorching hellish summer heat, it's been beginning to rain hard, REALLY HARD, recently. The rain was so hard last night that the water finally REKT my roof and ceiling. I could not get any sleep last night because I had to spend it scooping water off the floor using a dustpan and a small bucket. When the bucket fills, I had to bring it out the door and empty it, and then go back in again and scoop the water again. No, I can't simply put the bucket under the place where water is dripping, because it's not just dripping, mind you, it's fricking made a Niagara Falls on my wall.
This came at a perfect time too, just when I blew my cash on repairs on my mom's PC. Yeaaaaah. So how am I gonna get that roof fixed, without having to borrow money from relatives? Gotta work for it! So if you want anything drawn, just hit my commissions widget, k? I'll draw you anything. Absolutely anything.
K thx bye!
