welcome back. it’s been a while!
the last year has been nuts with the pandemic and having to cope with how everything changed in the blink of an eye.
however, while a lot of bad things have happened in the world, good things still happen every day and I think we often lose sight of that.
as it turns out, having miffy as a pet really has helped me these last 2 years. I am so obsessed with him that I decided to start doodling him. which then led to me thinking: perhaps people would want their pets doodled? which then turned into doodlingfordollars (thank you, Anabel!)
at first, I was very hurt because it seems rather than receiving support from people I have known and who would go as far as to brag that I am their close friend; it’s like they were turning a blind eye to everything I was spam posting about. or maybe they are genuinely clueless because the world doesn’t revolve around me. however, when people text and say “how’s that little sticker thing going”, I know you are lurking and honestly it’s really weird? no disrespect, but we ain’t homies, like that. do not refer to me as such. no hard feelings, life is too short.
to clarify, I have NEVER expected my friends to buy stuff from me, support is more than just monetary. sharing a post, liking, etc. is more than enough.
some of you may know though, that I am on a journey with God and He always has to put me in check about how people will ALWAYS disappoint. it’s just the fact of life. yo momma/dad, your sister/ brother, your gf/bf/significant other, your bff, whatever, at some point or another you will feel a little let down by them and that’s normal.
BUT this has taught me to appreciate those who do always show me support.
this is for y’all, my online grammy speech:
God: Nothing is impossible for you, baayybeeee!
my parents: for letting me be failure to launch and telling me when the dogs i draw look kinda weird and nothing like the client photos
Phlisha, Mari, Mara, Yeli, Lanica, and Karla : you all tolerate my shenanigans and let me spam you with whatever rando idea comes to mind. basically my marketing team LOL. I think you guys believe in me more than I believe in myself and for that, I will always be grateful.
