when your mom calls you down for dinner and you get there and its not ready
JUST FUCKING PRESS PLAY.
JUST DO IT.
DON’T PUSH THE BUTTON
actually yea that deserves a post of its own in the art school advice tag bc it’s shit ive literally been hearing my entire life and it took me a long time to unlearn it
it’s good to get into the practice of doing a little something every day if you can, bc routine helps keep the pace of improvement (and will also help you thru art blocks) that being said
yr physical + mental health are waaay more important than some made up goal of quantity of art like
and unfortunately in school you’ll be told a lot like “if you arent pulling all nighters yr doing something wrong!!” “draw every day or yr not dedicated enough to be an artist!!” etc etc but that is so abysmally wrong
take breaks, get sleep; having days where you can’t or dont want to work is valid and does not make you a lesser artist, taking care of yourself is not “slacking”. i wont say “dont let anyone make you feel guilty about it” bc that can’t always be helped esp in school environments but just know that that person is wrong and you have a right to prioritize self care
Nothing more hilarious than seeing a guy’s behavior towards you completely change as soon as he realizes he’ll never get anything out of his interaction.
