I could talk about how my life is busy, that I get pulled in about a dozen different directions and how work is tough, but I’m not going to make any excuses. No one is going to care about my excuses anyway. Yeah, my extracurricular activities have impeded my drawing, but ultimately I have to admit that I have not been holding my end of the bargain. Telling myself that I have to draw, no matter what is going on is tough. Tonight, I was enjoying the weekend, but I remembered that I have a broken commitment to the artistic process that needed to be mended.

I went to a friend’s graduation on Friday, which led to some interesting conversation with other artists that are also struggling with managing time and fitting creative project around a nine to five job. We didn’t solve the world’s problems, but I think we got some good ideas and inspiration.

I’ve reworked my schedule so that fewer things will conflict, but it is still going to be a struggle to not slack off.
