I don't know if there has ever been a time I've been this un-enthusiastic (is that even a word xD) for my birthday. I turn 22 the day after tomorrow, which is Monday. I should be studying for tests and making commissions but my mind's been very scattered lately. I guess I'm just not feeling it.
It doesn't help that the weather is shit. It's February (or well, actually just turned to March but still) and we have like +5 celsius. Normally this is the coldest month of winter, so around -20 or even -30 celsius. And snow! But nooope. None of that. And believe me, I'm not one to vote for cold, but because it constantly freezes and melts just a tiny bit, this winter has been useless for me and my pony, since we don't have indoor arena and there is no surface good enough. We can't even hack out that much, because we have trafficed roads and they're icy and hard as well, and it still gets very dark after like 5.30 pm, and I get to stables usually around 6-7 pm. I hate the dark. Snow helps a ton, but like I said, no snow.
Aaand now I've spent the last days worrying and caring for one of my pony's legs, it seems like there was a bad nail in her shoeing and we've been tending for that. In the time I've owned her she's never been lame even when she has had wounds and swollen legs etc, so when she was lame the other night my heart almost stopped. I just hope it's just the bad nail and nothing worse, the image of a tendon injury just haunts my mind.
On a positive note my hedgehogs are doing great. That's pretty much the only great thing right now.
So, uh, excuse me while I work through shit I guess. I've worked to finish the commissions asap, and I've been steadily clearing the list. I'm sorry I've taken so long, but I'll try to at least ensure the quality is good. Designs are something very hard to force, since I have to have the inspiration or they'll be shit. And I don't want to give my commissioners shitty designs.
I'll go back to sulking in my corner, just felt like something ventish.
