How to be Patient

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 3, 2012, 5:44 PM
Alright LOL. I've been asked a million times "How do you do it?! How are you so patient?!"
Thing is, it's not really patience :iconmingplz:
In fact, I'm the opposite of patient.
When my twin sis, :iconnaochiko: tackles me in front of my crush, I rage LOL :iconwoodyrapefaceplz:
But this "patience" isn't called patience. I'll prove you why. But on that note, I'll tell you how I do it LOL
I know it's nothing special, but it may help you! >XD

1. Listen to music. I'm not kidding. Last year in my art class, I couldn't listen to my own music.
I had projects that require an immense amount of details, and without music, I become agitated.
However, when I do listen to music, I get relaxed, and all the distractions disappear.
It really makes me focus, and it helps sway my mood.
Also, when I'm getting bored I listen to K-POP. I tend to get moving with the music and beats.
Now, when I'm getting sleepy, visual kei music is my best friend LOL.
I know. Despite my happy-go-luck art and appearance, I know I don't look like I listen to visual kei.
But really, I do.
I love visual kei :iconohdoki:
(Super favs are Diaura, Alice Nine, An Cafe, SuG, ReaLiES, and Gazette <3 xD)
Visual kei wakes me up; not only to their beautiful music, but to the emotion in it.
And if you want to give visual kei a try, here are my favs~……………

2. Take lots of breaks. No one said to work without stopping LOL.
In fact, working without stopping makes my head hurt.
Believe me, but when I work on details, I at least take a break every 6 mins.
I would go like "Alright, done with the shirt, lemme go check my facebook //shot"
But yeah LOL.

3.Reward yourself. Continuing on with the breaks,
when I finish a part of a picture,
I go like "Alright. You can have 1 potato chip"
"Watch 4 mins of that Korean drama/anime."
and when I'm left with a cliff hanger, I challenge myself.
"If you wanna watch that, you have to finish the tree and the hair."
and that's how I get faster with my work

4.Remember the painful comments that was said about your art or yourself
Alright, believe it or not, but I was a really emo kid back then  = u ="
But yes. I've had lots of painful memories.
I'm not using this journal to dump my problems, but...
things like
"Oh. That's the one that won the contest? They sure have low standards"
"Your art is good. But not as good as her's"
or a break up from a relationship.

It was 2009 when I gave a complete halt to art when I entered a relationship.
I mean, it was a 5 year (let's make that 3 years, considering that it was an on/off relationship)
. I would draw from time to time.
But when we finally went to the
same school together, that's when I completely stopped.
After I would finish my homework, immediately, I would talk to him on the phone.
I had no time for art, because all my time was wasted on him LOL
and after that bitter break up, I look back and say to myself
"I'm doing better now that I'm not chained to you any longer."

Now, each time I think about painful things done to me, I draw.
It makes my blood rush so fast, and I feel a burning sensation in my chest.
Drawing not only makes me relax and forget, but it also pushes me.
It makes me feel that I do have use.
and I don't do it for revenge, but to prove them wrong.

Conclusion: BUT YEAH. Sorry for the super long text wall
And well, to sum things up, I don't have patience. I have motivation
Now I hope you can get more motivated in your drawings too! //SHOT

LOL~ :D :XD:
your tips to be "patient" are more of  "make yourself in awesome mood doing the things you like
so that if anyone annoys you, you wouldn't care"
