The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Posted on May 24, 2013 by Keith

No, this is not about spaghetti westerns, even though I admit to their being a guilty pleasure of mine. This is just a quick review of some things that happened this week, because I’ve been wrapped up in my ‘Grand Endeavor’ and haven’t done much else during the day. Consider it this blogs equivalent of a quick Twitter or Facebook Wall post, just slightly longer!

Kauju - Pencil Roughs

Kauju – Pencil Roughs

The Good: I produced another webcomic last weekend, and almost have the one completed for this weekend. Even if it’s not getting seen much, I’m having a lot of fun making it, and someone even bought a print of one through Zazzle. You can see the pencil rough for last week’s comic above. Additionally, I learned that I would be able to stay in my apartment for another year, so that gives me time to finish getting the Grand Endeavor up and running, as well as being here and stable for my daughters as they transition to new schools.

The Bad: I’ve hit a code snag with my project, and am having trouble figuring out how to resolve it, so it’s cost me some time and added some stress. I know it’ll get resolved, but any delay is bad, even with the good news above. Also, while they were very good, my oldest daughter made brownies this week and my willpower just wasn’t up to the task and I’ve gotten in less cycling. I need to kick up the exercise this weekend!

The Ugly: After staying at bay for most of the time since I received my scan results, yesterday the depression hit back hard and with it came the self-defeating questions I strive to keep at bay, such as “was it a mistake to renew my lease?” “Will I actually be able to compete with my Grand Endeavor” “Will I ever lose the weight?” “Why should I get out of bed this morning?”  You get the idea. I believe that completing this weekend’s webcomic will help me push those thoughts back, as will completing the digital painting I’ve been working on, but I wish the depression had stayed away longer.

That’s it! For those who follow the webcomic, a new update will go up sometime tomorrow night, otherwise I’ll have a new VBlog update on Monday. Have a great weekend!
