Paperwork

I love my job. I really do. I get to spend my days guiding people, and I think there is nothing more purely satisfying than being part of helping someone understand something that had before eluded them. And getting paid to get lost in math equations? Doesn’t get much better than that. It really is an awesome job, and every day I feel lucky to have it. There is, of course, one downside to this ideal job of mine: paperwork. Every two weeks I have to submit a few dozen forms detailing work completed with students for the particular period. This is not something I especially enjoy. Earlier this week I had the perfect opportunity to get a jump on the papers that would be due in by noon today. But, instead of trudging through the seemingly endless forms and check boxes, I grabbed a dull no.2 pencil from my bag and started scribbling in the corner of my math book. With paperwork on the brain it seemed only natural that that ended up being the subject of my doodling attempt.

The original the sketch as it was in my battered and beaten notebook:

It’s a fairly simple thing. I’m still not settled on the colors I chose, so I might end up changing that at some point (along with the way-too-small hand I only just noticed…) Nevermind that. Today (3/1) I decided to fuss with the original a bit. Version two:

Still subject to change I suppose. But all in all it’s not too bad. I used to draw all the time. I wish it came that easy to me now. It’s been a few years since I’ve really done any drawing. Those were good days, less complicated. I miss them, and remember them well. Anyway, this is the first thing I’ve really drawn since my Super Lazy picture. Despite being a bit rusty I’m a might pleased with the way this came out. It feels good to at least try to draw again.
