It has been a privilege knowing you <3.
Mach's gut, Bär.
Last saturday, my mother contacted the vet and asked if it'd be possible for them to come over and euthanize the dog, if necessary. It must have been bad on that day. Today I visited my family AND my dog, who is still around. He was happy to see me, but I didn't like what I saw. For the past months, I came home once a week (as often as my work allowed it), to check on my dog, but after seeing him today I told my mom, if it should get worse from here and she thinks the dog is suffering, she should call the vet and have him euthanized. Even without contacting me first, even if I didn't have the chance to see him one last time. The last thing I want is for him to suffer. So, atm my heart and mind are in constant battle with each other. The mind knows what is best, but my heart is breaking. Let's see how long he has...
Sign of life 8D! Hello friends and watchers. I just wanted to drop you a few lines to say I'm fine. I took a looooong break from the internet and am now slowly returning to being active. At the moment, you'll find me most active on tumblr, but I'm also crawling back to deviantART to at least check my messages. Some already noticed that xD. But to make it official: You can reach me here again.
I also took a break from drawing, which is still ongoing and part of the reason you won't see me here much. I've started uploading a few sketches and lines on tumblr, but that's all they are: attempts at drawing, and they don't belong in a gallery x'D.
If you want to check on my on tumblr (I'm a lot more active there), you can do so in my two blogs:
kelpies-and-unicorns.tumblr.com (everything goes here; art, reblogs, some rl nerding)
unicurse-comic.tumblr.com (d'uh, Unicurse art and world building, currently more of the latter - feel free to stop by if you're interested in background info)
Also, I opened anonymous asks on both blogs, since not everyone has a tumblr ;D.
As for RL, nothing has changed. My dog is doing badly, worse than half a year before, but that was to be expected. He's still doing *fine*, given his condition, but he's old and we can't expect a miracle healing.
Work is still stressful, but I'm coping.
As for physical condition, atm I'm sick and somehow managed to strain my wrist. So double yay! On my way to the doc now~.
I hope you all are doing fine!
I bet you all saw that coming at some point, and I have to say, I'm least surprised by my decision. I've been less active which each passing day, partly because of the stress at work, partly because I'm losing interest in drawing (which could just be connected to the stress, though).
My job situation, plus the sickness of my beloved dog (tavaris.deviantart.com/journal…), leave me quite thoughtful and sometimes even depressed, not to say sad. I have the feel I need to rearrange a few things in my life, and spend as much time with my dog as possible.
I'm gonna disable my watch on deviations, so that I won't get swamped by submissions once I log in again. If there's a submission that you feel I must see, it might be best to send me a link.
I do not wish to log into deviantART during my hiatus, so there is still the question about how to reach me. I'd hate to lose contact to some of you guys. If you want to contact me, feel free to do so through my e-Mail address firstname.lastname@example.org, be it something urgent or just for small talk.
Bye guys, until we read again!
