Let’s be honest, I can’t dress Goth or head-to-toe Lolita on my workplace.
I started my first working days with classic clothes, with a very little touch of vintage:
Vintage/modest rockabilly works perfectly well in an office. I play with hairbands and headbows.
Today I tried a casual lolita look. The frills are ok when they are only at the top or the bottom of the outfit.
I like the challenge of keeping part of my style but fitting in a non-creative workplace.
I’m keeping up with the #inktober contest.
I called my friend with a brain tumor this morning; she’s ok and responding well to the treatment. She’s taking art classes!
I hope she keeps doing ok.
I wasn’t sure I would be able to draw a sketch a day for #inktober but it’s been 15 days now and I have my 15 drawings!
As for work, I had to make some things clear with the staff (like not giving me the same boring and repetitive task to do for half a working day!) and all seems fine now.
Windows 10 bugged so i can only use my mobile to blog. Today’s the end of my 1st working week after 2 years of health issues, recovering and healing and so far so good.
I hope with the coming back to work rush I will stick to the daily #inktober challenge.
Here are my first two ink pics:
Another series of sketches which I am quite proud of all the more so that I did not use any blue print.
I should go back to work on Oct. 1st.
It would be part time on a first place.
I will be something between an archivist and a librarian, reading and filing newspapers, writing summaries and reviews and sharing them through the intranet.
I’m bored at home but going back to work after all the ordeals I went through is a bit scary. Everybody says it’s normal after all this time but I’ll be ok.
My dog seems bored. So am I. I played with her this morning, throwing several balls in various directions, so she would be playful and excited. ♥
I keep on sketching out of the blue, still disappointed by the fact that without a blueprint the artwork is much less nice but I think I’m improving a bit nonetheless.
I’m having various medical appointements to determine when I go back to work. My health are much better after two years of treatement and recovery process.
Like I said I don’t meet friends flesh and blood very often so to compensate I tend to have lots of digital interactions with people from the Net.
The girl I told you about who came to visit me with her bf is a long term digital relationship. I met her through her blog 10 years ago and she was very genuine in her writing, maybe a little bit too much personal on the WWW, but so was I at the time. We’ve met IRL no more than 5 times but we often keep in touch.
And then there are people who are more or less famous – mainly on Youtube – and seem charismatic and they help you learn and think about society issues/topics through their own personal experience: Religion, depression, trans life, alternative fashion…and it’s very nurturing to the mind and to the soul. Sometimes I like to draw fan art for them, like trans (M to F) girl Stef.Sanjati who I have been following for a while now.
All these people who don’t know me are part of my life, not as friends but as role models and inspirational individuals.
