About time I updated this since it's not really October anymore aaaand... weeeell...

I'm giving something a try to make pages faster, and trying to stay creative and doodle, and go outside and generally be at least a somewhat functioning individual. I can't say that this is entirely successful. This time of the year just hits me hard, I guess. And I just try to keep going and not think of it when possible. It's getting hard to find something to blog about so I don't update this journal much, I'm really like my characters but more boring.

And how have you all been? :)

I make webcomics - Cop Story and Cop Stories

Drawing comics about disabled people and their friends (some of them are cops).

Tiger La la la la 

ROAR!  I am a Tiger.  Metaphorically anyway .
How are you doing?  :P  Busy with work at the moment?

Heeey! I've been thinking I should write to you, it's been a while since we chatted. :hug:

And yeah, well, sort of, trying to find a way to actually be efficient with comics, trying to walk more, trying to do everything more and not doing it enough... It's fine one minute and bad the other, really kind of moodswingy. I need to get back to DA and other social media, maybe it'll help...

And how are you?

YESSSS, it's been too long. I've been busy too though. Oooh, walking more. Sounds great!! Where abouts are you walking? Locally? Shopping? the park?  I really get the moodswingly thing :/   it's so annoying.  Not to mention certain... developments with American politics have made me really quite depressed. It all feels so DIRE.

It's been going pretty OK with me so far. Drawing a little less BUT attempting to find some design/marketing volunteering. It always bugs me how much applying to volunteer is like applying for a job. It's FREE and so I think it should be MUCH easier. I resent having to beg to do free work.

I might have found a good opportunity *fingers crossed* However...They're a charity and they used to pay a company to do the work. Now, though, they'd like somebody to do it for free   :/   However, I am a little concerned because they seem to want me to attend regular meetings with their community and get me all involved and they aren't really that local for me. It might take me an hour to travel there and, of course, that'll cost me money. I need to tell them 'look, I can't do this unless you reimburse me my travel expenses. I don't have an INCOME!'.  It's just hard and kinda embarrassing to say. Also since many of their community are volunteers it feels particularly awkward to raise.... I need to raise it with them on a meeting on Thursday.  On the one hand they're getting free work. On the other I NEED the free work. Any advice you have would be welcome! have you ever had to deal with that?

I've been kind of chronically broke lately, every time money comes in it goes out quickly - got a really nice chest of drawers in the reduced price part of Ikea (forgot if I told you about that), then expenses to equip the second rat cage (more rats soon! :)) - haven't actually spent that money yet but it has to be put away, and so on... So I try to avoid shopping when I can these days. :) I do want to send you and a few more friends little Christmas packages this year buuut it might actually be after Christmas, dunno yet. I'll have more money in December but the post office will start going into winter holiday frenzy by then. :/

But anyway, I've been to the local park alone 3 or 4 times, that makes me proud (you know how hard it is)! I try to invent a new route every time and then draw it in my journal. But yeah, once my mood goes down it's really hard to go outside AT ALL. And I feel you about US politics. It's scary, and I didn't expect to be another generation actually scared of politics. :( But at least we can reach out to each other, be supportive in small things, talking online - older generations didn't have that.

I still want to volunteer (for a non-profit disability organisation, I have one in mind but I might find something else) but still keep chickening out. Maybe 2017 will have to be a year of changes!

But yeah, I understand why volunteering as an artist can be depressing. But it does sound like you found a good opportunity! *fingers crossed*  I think asking to cover travel expenses is perfectly reasonably in your situation - you are ALREADY offering free work and contributing something but times are hard and you can't be expected to PAY on top of your free work. And since it's graphic work if they REALLY can't pay you then they can just discuss details on skype and you'll work from home - there are lots of options for a designer. Try to stand your ground there? Volunteering is a good thing but we're all human, we don't have limitless resources, it's already good that you want to give something for free. It's kind of sad how much travelling by regular public transport costs these days but yeah, if you're doing it regularly it can add up to quite a large sum per month!

Btw, volunteer group meetings also scare the shit out of me. So far I've been looking for something where I could befriend/chaperone people with disabilities but all these groups always have this part of "let's all gather together and drink tea and sign songs!" and it scares me so much. I've already decided I'll have to tell them about my mental issues, it's only fair.

PS. Do you use any sort of mobile phone chatting service? I obviously still use DA and twitter but lately on some days I just don't find the energy to browse them daily, so if you use skype or snapchat or something that uses wifi (as in NOT paying for international sms), lemme now, I'd install it too? :)
