As for the actual grown-up part, I'm holding up my end.. I teach college courses in Digital Art (digital painting and illustration, so it gets to be completely creative), and I do events as a demo artist for a hardware graphics company that actually allows such a job to be possible. I also dabble in the other stuff that leads to putting bread on the table; portraits and occasionally, caricatures, fancypants commissions, and some video marketing stuff. These days, I'm starting to get pretty submerged in tech ideas and I'm learning how to code. I think about apps all the time... either new ones or ways to tweak ones I've come up with. I love hashing out their mechanisms like the innards of a clock.
I can't understand how people can tolerate the TTC in the summer when you could be on a bike. I try to be outside as much as possible, which can often mean finding me with my laptop on a blanket in the lawn or jogging by the lake. I like finding weird dives with a shifty little patio and writing stories there with a pint, but it hasn't been warm enough to take full advantage of this.
I have done a fair bit of travelling, but no where near as much as I'd like, and after last winter, I'm hell-bent on getting away from anywhere north for all of next season. My uncle is in Syria, after barely leaving his house for four years. This continues to blow my mind.
I think a lot about things I'd like to paint or occasionally (and hopefully more this summer), actually painting them. When I'm not doing that, I'm thinking about why I'm not more socially-minded, in terms of actually helping make the world less shitty. That, or to-do lists, mostly involving stories to write and things to make, so yeah.. I spend a lot of time inside my head. But I go big the other way too- I waste away hours on patios or friends' decks like nobodies business, I love a good drink and gab.
