i have feelings that are too real for characters that are fictional
Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle
A silly comic idea I had the other day. The best piece I ever did in Life Drawing classes was when I was really ill and almost asked to go home- so I thought I may as well have a go. Quite happy with how it turned out, actually.
All pencil because I don’t have the energy for anything else, though.
(P.S- If you didn’t realise House was partially inspired by Sherlock Holmes, now you know.)
did you ever stop what you were doing and smile and feel all warm inside because moriarty
do you ever just want someone to come over and lay on the floor with you for a while
Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”
this is an important thing to remember.
The longer I procrastinate on returning phone calls and emails, the more guilty I feel about it. The guilt I feel causes me to avoid the issue further, which only leads to more guilt and more procrastination. It gets to the point where I don’t email someone for fear of reminding them that they emailed me and thus giving them a reason to be disappointed in me.
Then the guilt from my ignored responsibilities grows so large that merely carrying it around with me feels like a huge responsibility. It takes up a sizable portion of my capacity, leaving me almost completely useless for anything other than consuming nachos and surfing the Internet like an attention-deficient squirrel on PCP."
