Beach Day

unnamed (2)

It’s my birthday today! Spent it on the beach, eating strawberries and drinking white wine, in a town I had never been to before, so awezume! I was lucky enough to get some sun on my big day as well, and an extensive book about how to run aquariums. I’m preparing on making my long term dream come true and get my own fish tank after the summer!

I wish I had the time to draw and paint more. Gonna make an effort and create some more images before I celebrate my third year of “The Art Project” this August! Would be cool to reach 200 posts on this blog with that theme. Right now I’m at #144 and counting. At the moment I’m dealing with some really challenging personal stuff, so drawing and arts has been put on hold, more or less.

Bottom image is a study I made of Mathias Zamęcki’s amazing portrait last week.

How To Fix Your Computer With Handcrafted Wood

Crafting a piece of wood to help my new hard drive stay in place. Feeling like MacGyver.

It’s hard to get some work done when this dog wants to play all the time ^__^

Running your own thing means to need to take care of everything concerning your business. Both doing the actual job and services you are selling, but also all the paperwork, the planning, making sure you got everything you need in the office, setting up meetings and learning about economics etc. So when my laptop decided to fly away to computer-heaven last week all I could do was to pack up my things, head home and try to solve this as quickly as possible (trust me, at 2 PM when you have plenty of work to do, taking care of your computer is the last thing I want to do).

So with a little bit of help I managed to locate the problem (my new hard drive as a little bit too small for the space where it should be placed, leading to a loose contact between the drive and the computer). The solution was to stack it up with hard paper, and to craft a piece of wood (an old cutting board) to fit exactly between the hard drive and the computer, keeping everything tight and in place. Since it’s a brand new SSD I’m not concerned about the heat, paper needs quite the temperature to start burning heh.

I’ve learned so, so much in just two months of doing my own thing. And not only about the business, but everything else surrounding it. I strive to improve and get better each day, learning from my mistakes, so far it’s been very exciting. Scary in a way, but I really feel free in a new way : )  I know everything rests on my shoulders, but for weird reason that only boosts me even more.
