Sorry for taking so much time to make that new Journal I asked about. lol
I wasn't feeling very well for the past 8 days or so, but things are much better now. That, and, I took on a task to feed the strays in our street, as well as entertain what's left of the old pack of 5 pups and their mom which I've been baby-sitting. lol
Well, where to start...
I know I told you I found a professor that's going to prepare me for the entry exam on Faculty of Applied arts, and I was catching up to what I missed during whole January and February (when I was sick)... Things are going smoothly and I did my first painting with acrylics (I've yet to upload it) - the first painting I did in about 10 years I think... There's going to be an exhibition of our works from the classes in September, and I will start practicing at that time with full speed. In the meantime, I'm preparing materials for work at home; but - as I've mentioned... I've been a little side-tracked...
First, the neighbor's hunting dog had her first litter, and after they turned a month old, Lara (the mom) gave me a role of the nanny.
Not that I minded though.
However, the puppies needed new homes and all but one male are gone. It was kind of a shock when I found out he was giving them away, but I think I got over it. In the end, I ended up bonding with their mom a lot - to that extent that she even tried following me when I was going to the shop one day.
After that, somebody dumped a female pup in our neighborhood. She was practically unnoticed for two weeks, and then the problems started. Nobody wanted her in their yard, and neighbors' dogs have been playing rather roughly with her, so they almost took her yet to another place. Thank God, the Society for animal welfare in our town reacted at our plea, and they put up her photos online. Also, my folks softened up after seeing how much effort we were giving to save her (mainly I and the kids, but that led to another unfortunate turn of events...), and now she mainly stays in our yard, and gets her meals regularly. Yet, I hope somebody will still take her in - you all know from my constant complaining that I can't rely on my own health, and my parents simply don't want another dog nor a stray - so it would be really nice if somebody were to adopt her and dedicate himself to her entirely. She's so skinny though... Could be parasites...
Anyway, they agreed that she gets the name Masha. She's finally starting to react when we call her.
Who knows - maybe her lucky star will shine and she'll end up being with us for good... although even I personally doubt it.
Other than that - nothing really new. My friends are going to kill me, because I haven't been away from the house for an entire week. I need to get some other stuff done as well, and then I'll hit the road with dad again, and we're gonna bring my PC from Belgrade home. Since I will be staying for another year, why not? And this old wreck of a PC my parents have can barely run any application online (I guess it's enough to tell you I can't upgrade it to anything other than Windows XP for you to get what I mean).
I need to finish that work with Terra, and then do some homework the professor gave me, and also continue the work on the collab with Nigsea
I have to tell you this, though you won't believe it:
I finally succumbed and started watching "Avatar" and "The Legend of Korra". XD I don't have any fan art in mind yet, but it could happen...
As for the thing with the kids... Well... The boy and the girl that are 8 and 5 somehow thought I could be someone who can hang out with them, and that they can play with me, so.... Don't even ask. -___- This Friday was Friday the 13th for me.
And the last thing - since I mentioned 'strays', but told you of only one, I need to bring up Becky - the grownup female stray that's about the size of a chihuahua. She's the timidest dog I've ever seen, but now I can't make her stop following me.
At least she, Masha, Lara and Crni (meaning 'Black' in translation - the last pup left out of the litter) are now close friends and play like they're all puppies.
I'm happy with animals around me. And I don't mind nor dislike children - but only those that are well-behaved. I can literally handle a whole pack that misbehaves a lot better than just a few kids that do.
I hope that won't determine what kind of a mother I'll be one day.
But, that's another story that has yet to tell itself...
So, buh-bye for now everybody! And till next upload~!
