At the Academy, I'm sitting down second from the left.
Do you ever feel like the life is being sucked out of you? Like someone has popped a straw in the top of your head and it sipping on it ever so slowly? Yeah, that's how I've been feeling recently. I've been at the academy for a year now, and there are only three weeks left until I can walk out of that place with my middle finger held high in the air. Even though I can see the light at the end of the long, long tunnel now, I still feel like it's going to take ages to get there. Basically, for those of you who don't know, I attend The Welsh Entrepreneurship Academy, it's the pilot year of the course and basically I'm there to learn all the ins and outs of business. I've had some great experiences on the course, such as having the opportunity to be on a TV programme and meeting some interesting business people. However, over the last few months we haven't had the chance to focus on our own businesses, it's all been about the assignments and there are certain people there who just want to make life that little bit harder for me. Now, me being the nerd that I am, I completed my assignments well before the deadlines and I've only got one outstanding until I am completely done. Yet I am still being made to attend, and sit there, and do nothing. This is really hard for me to deal with, because I feel so unproductive and I'm the type of person that likes having work to do. So, I have this constant feeling of guilt that I'm not at home producing more artwork or working on my business... But as I keep telling myself, there are only three weeks left now and then I can produce all the artwork I want and focus all of my efforts on my business. That is what I'm passionate about, and I will be honest, when I'm drawing I'm at my happiest.
 
Today, I decided that I would work on a new piece, I've been so inspired lately but just haven't had the chance to draw. So, instead of letting the academy suck my inspiration out of me too, I decided to put it to good use. I decided to draw a portrait of Sylar, from the TV series Heroes. I've been completely obsessed with it recently, Rhydian bought the complete box set and every night we sit down and watch a few episodes together. I think Sylar is one of the most fascinating characters, and he has a really unique features, so I sat down a complied some ideas of what I could draw as an interesting art piece. So far, I'm still working on the portrait, I've done the majority of the face then I just have to work on the hair, background etc. This is the first time that I've drawn a portrait of a man with stubble, and I'm pleased with how it's looking so far. Can't wait to get it finished.
I've got a busy day ahead of me tomorrow. I'm at the academy in the morning, I have a presentation to do, which is a thrilling thought, especially seeing as when I have to speak in front of people I get clammy hands and tongue tied. Yay. Then, I've got to get back home for my bedroom furniture to be delivered. I'm really excited to get the bedroom finished, it is so frustrating having to live out of plastic boxes and uncomfortably sit on the hard wood floor to do my makeup and hair in the mornings... Simple things like a wardrobe and a dressing table you never really think about, but you really miss them when you don't have any. So, tomorrow evening will be spent building wardrobes and getting frustrated when I can't understand the instructions. I can see it now... I'll build it, and then there be one lonely bit of wood left, and I'll have no idea where it comes from... Wish me luck!
