The Annoyance of Change

If you follow me online, whether it’s here or on any of the social media I use, you probably noticed I went a little quiet.

Progress on sewing has already been paused for a while, but even drawing and sketching pretty much halted for the past few weeks. I admit I was in a distant mood and really didn’t want to work on anything (bah!). And then, it happened….

My old laptop finally had enough.

I knew it was coming. It was getting very cranky with me. Not wanting to start up (it’s almost like it needed coffee before it got to work, heh — I can understand that), locking up randomly, overheating often. Well, it finally said enough… and that was that.

My sweet husband got me a new computer, and I’ve been slowly installing things on it. Very slowly. It seems like everything I want to put on here gives me a little fight. Gah. And of course, realizing new versions of things changed (something as simple as a font I used to mark my art and photos… can’t find it, and can’t even remember what it was called), and figuring out what to do for now.

But all annoyances aside, it’s so nice to have a computer that works. A computer that doesn’t make you break into a sweat just being near it. A computer that practically beckons you to sit in front of it, open a program, and work on something.

So here’s hoping I can get back to art soon, and who knows? Maybe I will even get back to blogging a little more regularly. 🙂

My new computer, with very welcoming wallpaper. 😉 Unfortunately, there goes my dining room table. While it’s nice having SUCH a big screen to view everything, it and the tower are also very big.

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them — paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again.

My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company.

My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I’m up to with friends and family.

  2. I’m hoping a working computer that’s not cranky will mean I won’t ignore my blog posts! 😉 And look! I just posted another one. Ha! Thanks for the reply!
