I thought I'd write a journal for you guys to bring you up to speed to what's going on at the moment.
Well, this page is a bit quiet at the moment since I'm really busy dedicating all my art time to a huge exhibition in September in Southampton. I'm going to be in a magazine and everything! I'll also have to talk to a crowd, and as a result I'm absolutely kakking myself at that thought. I'm the only animator in a group of fine artists who know all the right lingo. What the hell am I going to say?
"Hi, I like Megaman. I uh... pixels. Mosaic. Interactive media. It moves. Can I have wine now? kthnxbai"
I'm positive it'll be fine, but I have a very short amount of time to work with and with all this madness going on, it's a worry that I'll even get all of it done in time! Somehow though, I always manage to hit my deadlines. Somehow I'll pull it out of my ass just in the nick of time!
Also, the big move is in T minus 10 days. The flat is mostly packed up and most of my time is spent avoiding boxes, and picking my way gingerly around bags. There's still a bit to do though and it's getting exciting, but slightly depressing. Especially since I'm very houseproud and I can't stand the mess! Ahhh, mess everywhere!
The big news however is earlier this week, on my first day at my new part time job, my left ovary decided to say "RAGEQUIT", and a large cyst ruptured. I spent the evening in A and E (ER to you Americans) huffing gas and air and getting very high on Morphine. I was very, very lucky actually because the cyst bled into itself and not into my pelvis, so there wasn't much risk of infection. I spent the night sleeping in many different places, arguing for more painkillers and was in hospital until about 4pm the following evening. I've been recovering ever since, taking some very much needed rest playing video games and being a general slob. So that was an... experience! Of course, the implications are pretty scary... In 3 months I have another lot of scans and if the big cyst is still there/has grown, I might need surgery. But I'm trying to stay positive and hopeful!
During the whole time, Nick was the biggest angel in the world, and has honestly gone above and beyond his boyfriend duties. Awesome dude is fuckin' awesome
I promise I'll post more when I can. Stay awesome, folks.
