A little montage about the things I worked on lately. The wall drawing is almost ready. I really like it how the characters are just there on my wall in real size.
I did more sketching at Massolit Books and Café, just sketching objects around me.
And I did a little progress with the grey dress, I figured out how to attach the shoulder strap to the fabric. I really like how it turned out.
I continued working random jobs and I tried being a waitress at a theatre. It was really fun, I liked that I had to think about many things at once and manage pouring drinks fast.
I’ve been watching Elon Musk videos lately for fun and I think he is such a cute person. There are two things I really like about him. One is that he genuinely wants to do the things he is doing. And the other thing is that no matter who is he talking to he is always treating the other person with the same respect and pays attention while enjoying the conversation. Also when he talks about his employees I feel like he is treating them equally and value their work. I think these are very unique and good traits.
Yesterday I got a new project! It is about designing a kitchen utensil set, I really like the design direction and the client is really nice so far. 🙂 So I’m excited.
I finished another project not so long ago, it was about a lighter, I made technical drawings and a 3D model that was used to 3D print the shape of it. The client was very happy with the result and I enjoyed it very much.
Also, I’m very excited about a drawing I’m making, it is on my wall, life-sized and a line art. I’ll share it when it’s ready.
So I thought I can deal with my traumas on my own.. for sure 😀 I always planned doing therapy at one point, but I didn’t think it was necessary right now.
But I got stuck with my healing so I went to see a therapist and it’s so awesome!!
In my particular situation I think I could figure out a lot of things on my own with online sources so I wasn’t missing any information, but counseling gave me something totally different I needed.
I could uncover my memories and be honest with myself and let out feelings each day on my own, but having a conversation with someone regularly gave me a lot of support and a space to express myself. It was great to talk to someone who understands the dynamics and consequences of childhood sexual abuse very well and many times when I expressed my thoughts and feelings about the abuse or about something in my life right now she gave me her feedback or opinion about it or she rephrased it in a way that made so much sense and helped me so much.
And it’s great to be in an environment where my specific issues are 100% understood and accepted, because generally in the world that’s not the case.
