May ProgBlog #2: sulking

in #aer9 months ago

That's what I've been doing for the past ages because I've been wasting a lot of time playing stupid phone games because stuff happens in the games unlike in real life where it feels no matter how much effort and hours you pour into something, absolutely nothing at all gets done.

My parents happened to be up for Mother's Day as they had come over for a quick holiday (which of course involved catching up as much as we could as we only see them a couple of times a year) so sibling dearest coerced asked me to please get some flowers and she would send a hamper of goodies.

I don't like cut flowers, however I only send the parents a Christmas present comprising of a photobook of everything the kids got up to that year and Mum loves flowers so I got a nice custom one from a florist.

I had been a bit vague with the instructions as I generally trust people who are supposed to be good at their job to do their thing, I'd just asked for the blue orchids I saw in their fridge and then for it to be bright and colourful. Apparently a number of people attempted to buy it before I got there to pick it up.

I know where to go if I ever need flowers again.

Mum had a few days to enjoy them before heading home, and they apparently survived really well so probably made my grandmother (also a lover of cut flowers) happy for a few more days.

The feathering went by about as quick as it usually does. I once more spent half my designated work day doing anything and everything other than working on it. Part of it was because I was tired and braindead from a lot of extra socialising and activity and part of it was because it's so tedious it's one of many things that I desperately just want to be done without having to actually do it.

Aoife also got the tiniest little bit of work done, I was kind of feeling in a 3d mood and I was meant to alternate between this and feathering but no feathering worth mentioning got done and not a lot of this got done either.

I fell into the trap of succumbing to the overwhelming feeling like I absolutely had to stay up late to "catch up" on work and then not getting a lot of work done anyway because I'm too freaking tired. And then too freaking tired the following day too because downward spiral. I am working on it.

More feathering got done, just for a change I worked on the shoulder as the direction change is coming up.

There was an epic derp moment where I was really wishing Blender had a wireframe shade mode and then ages later remembered that it does, which made lining up the spine and border feathers easier.

At least now it looks and feels like stuff has moved.

This post also appears on my blog.

Want a cameo character? If you interact frequently with me here (either on my posts or your posts or better yet both!) or on one of the linked Discord channels, all you have to do is let me know and tell me what you'd like :) Everything you need to know is (probably) here and if it isn't just ask (sorry the link goes offsite to my blog where the layout is how I want rather than the one here which is only here because the original one was).

Thanks for looking! ^_^

My friend... you are really hard on yourself... or driven... or both !! I was interested to read you do not like 'cut flowers' .... I am in that camp for sure.

Some absolutely unsolicited advise ... so feel free to tell me to p!ss off ... but appreciate your folks, no matter what !! Time goes by quickly (especially when you are working on feathers {grin}) .. and one day they are no longer there.

I know... no parents for 42 years now {sulk}

Both...though the frantic tedium avoidance has been winning lately ^_^; I am back into it nnow though :)

Flower arrangements are beautiful, I just have this thing about watching them dying in the corner x_x much prefer plants (the flowers budding, opening and then wilting on the plant doesn't bother me nearly as much).

Unsolicited or otherwise I think that's always a good reminder. I do appreciate my folks which is why mother dearest got her flowers.

Aww [hugs] :< I'm very much not looking forward to that particular phase of life.

The upvote is for the hug .... I love hugs !
