SO, long story short, I requested a transfer from the survival-job store I am at to one much closer that could give me less intense hours (I'm working about 25 hours a week plus a 1.5 hour commute one-way- and I have a second job where I work about 14 hours a week on top of it... plus school....).
This transfer won't go through until August 16th. After that I will actually be able to do art again and I am so excited.
Sorry for the long delay. It's really tricky finding a good balance between making money to put food in your mouth and making time to further your career as an artist. This is the only way I know how to do it. =P
