-x- Overhelmed with Life - dA Rules?

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 27, 2015, 6:25 AM

Hiya :smile: 

I know that i'm rather inactive lately... I feel like I owe an explanation for it as I didn't write anything about what is going on in a while.

:star: But before I begin I want to thank every deviant and friend who is following my journals on here, despite me being so inactive since a long time. You are all precious and I can't express how happy it makes me feel to know there are people around here who care and support me and my art :heart: :doublehug: revamp 

:star: As I mentioned last time I started my new job in august and so far I'm rather happy with it. Of course nothing is perfect but I really enjoy it so far and I also have the feeling that the people working there and me agree on a bunch of basic things far better than at my previous job and so a lot of conflicts do not happen to begin with. It is really exhausting though, much more exhausting than at my old work place, adding up that I need about an hour to go there and an hour back home. Already from the longer work hours and the way I have a lot less time and I still have to balance it all out with sports, friends, my distance relationship, the household and time to rest and do my own things, like drawing for example.

It may sound weird, but I feel like I never was this busy before in my life, having so many different things to organize and priorizing what is important and what not. I feel like I negelect deviantArt and drawing because of it. But after all these events in the week I don't feel like doing much anymore in the weekend, I'd rather rest and play games or read manga or anything where I don't have to think much anymore... :stayawake: 

I know that I do not have to feel guilty as this is a rather normal evolution in life that can happen to everyone, but I'm still struggling with it, especially when something unforeseen happen, like me catching a cold or anything else.

Ah I think I just wanted to explain what is going on in my head right now and maybe some of you had similiar experiences and can give me a few tipps how to orfanize everything or how I can make time for myself in between everything else, I'd appreciate that ^^

:star: Good news are though that I got a new table and now finally have space to draw or do anything artistic. Before I had my laptop and all equipment as well as the printer on one table so I hardly had space to do anything else. Now I got 2 tables and I hope that gives me not only space but also motivation to draw and be more artistic again. I already bought a bunch of things for christmas presents and plan to make something myself this year, so I hope to get started on these things now with space for it.

:star: On another topic, I read a bunch of journals about how deviantArt changed their rules towards raffles and contests and after reading so much about it I'm really confused what is true and what not. Can anyone tell me what exactly is allowed now? :baffled: 

I hope you all have a nice day! Thanks for reading and don't be shy to comment Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4]

I envy the people that actually just draw and have fun with it. 

4 deviants said I either don't manage to start..
2 deviants said ..or hate the outcome and keep being annoyed about the mistakes
