Saturday; Drawing and Expenses



There’s something nice about drawing when you’ve bottled up stuff inside. Then you can be as sad or angry at the paper as you like.

There’s also something nice about drawing lots of things when you should be paying attention to something else, like your tutor. Or an essay that’s due in less than 12 hours.

But sleep is for the weak.


I’ve been drawing a lot, as I’ve said in the last few posts, because I have a lot of other work to do lately. 


If you are also into some strange drawing things, check out jennerallydrawing. I found her through a gif of hers (pretty sure that’s the one) that went viral on Tumblr, from this animation she did (which I do like a lot). 


I don’t think that’s how somersaults work, but artistic license, right? 


Lately I’ve learned that I have very little self control when it comes to buying stuff off etsy. If you want to keep track of what a failure I am at keeping my money in check, Instagram’s the place for that. It’s just… All these vintage things! Op shopping without leaving my apartment or needing to put on pants! My method of stopping myself is either the shipping fee (anything other the amount of what the item is price OR over $20 is just too much) or generally if it costs over $20 I will triple think about it for like a month. By then it’s usually sold, which is definitely better for my wallet.

I don’t buy everything for myself (!!!) either. But still, excuses excuses.

On the other hand, I’ve totally lost feeling for going into stores to look at stuff to buy. Markets are still a threat to my monthly expenses, but I (unfortunately? Fortunately?) go to those a lot less these days.


If my collection of receipts are correct, I spend roughly 6 times the amount of money I spend on travel, on food (which makes sense since I live in the city right now, but still).


A while ago I read somewhere about a blogger who began to draw what she spent her money on. I’m trying to remember who it was, but a vague keyword search on Google has yielded me Kate Bingaman-Bert, who did daily drawings on what she spent money on for eight years. Eight (8) years! Imagine that.
