I do a lot of drawing and painting in general for my course and recreationally, but recently I have been using it as an escape on a daily basis. Playing some music and even just sketching an idea out lets me concentrate on something completely, like tunnel vision so nothing else crosses my mind. It has become necessary for me to do this, just so that I don’t lose my mind.
There are so many things happening at the moment. My mocks are next week, there is a huge concert coming up, as well as a carol service, I keep getting asked to do a huge amount of favours as christmas approaches and, as my previous post suggested, my friendship group is falling apart at the seams. It’s only the bestie and my art that’s keeping me sane at the moment.
I know that other people have it worse, but I sometimes just feel like breaking down. I wish everybody else would just take me into consideration before including me in their plans. That’s all.
Do you ever get this? Did you when you had exams? What do you do when you need to release steam or forget about the innumerable items on your to-do list? Let me know. Talking about your stuff helps to put it into perspective sometimes.
Have a great day.
