It's been a long time since I last put up a Journal post, and a lot has happened in that time. So for who ever reads this, here's the update. I've been editing a lot, mostly act reel, but it's been taking up a lot of my time so I haven't been drawing as much. I'll be cutting a feature in late May or June, which will be a lot of fun and good pay, but I'm a little freaked that I will have problems working, because I'm having a baby.
I found out I was pregnant on December 24th 2012, and I'm due in late August, looks like it will be a Virgo baby. Andrew is being a proud papa, but we are both worried about how much the baby will cost, cause working will be hard with a new born on my tit. I'm thinking of waiting till after the new year to look for a post house job. should all be back to hiring by then, and the baby will be old enough for daycare. No post house would hire me now know I'm popping in a few months, so for now, I'm trying to get in as much freelance work as possible.
I haven't been drawing as much, but, I've really gotten into painting, and I'm good at it, which is shocking! I really haven't painted in the past so I was happily surprised to find out that I'm good at it, but of course, I never have time, nor the paint. I really want to do more but with the baby coming I don't want to waste money on paint and canvas. At the same time I fear if I don't paint a lot now, I may not get to again for years.
The really bad new that I got this year was that my Mom was diagnosed with cancer (Non Hodgkin B Cell Lymphoma). She told me the same time I went over to tell them I was going to have a baby. Odd timing. She's doing chemo, and has lost her hair, but had high spirits, that the chemo will end a few months before I have the baby, and I'm glad to say that but HELL YEAH! CANCER FREE!!!
So right now I'm just working, seeing friends, seeing my mom, getting ready for the baby, and watching my baby bump grow. I feel so old.
