A couple days ago I stopped using Facebook. It was a long time coming. I didn't like it anymore and I didn't really use it. The only thing I ever used it for was a crappy version of e-mail. By "stopped using Facebook", I mean I deleted my account. Just one less unnecessary thing I have to give a crap about.

Also, I do have a twitter account, but I don't really use it the way everyone else does. I wanted a changing line of text somewhere and it's easier to use twitter than making a text file and uploading it.

I need to update a few things, but probably won't get around to it for a while. I feel like I need to gallery-ize some comic work, panels or something, but I always start feeling like it's a waste of my time that's better spent doing something else.

Also, I had a thought last night. I have a problem with telling how much time has passed. Right now, I'm working on a small 3 - 3&1/2 page project. It wouldn't have taken this long to finish, but the power outage threw off my schedule by about 5 days. Anyway, I noticed that I've been gauging time by how often I've been drawing.

I just stopped working at a hotel, and while I was there I was working full time for the better part of two years. Because of that, I really only drew once a week. For most of two years, I got used to drawing once a week for a few hours.

Last night, I noticed that every day I worked on something from the day before, it felt like I hadn't done anything in a week- even though I'd worked the day before on it. That's what I'd realized; even though I've been working regularly, I've just been conditioned to feel like I hadn't done anything in a week every time I start drawing, every day.

I noticed when I was getting ready to start for the day and I was looking at the page and thought that it felt like forever since I worked on it. Then I noticed that I drew half the panels the day before, it just didn't feel recent.

Something weird I'm gonna have to get rid of.
