I cannot say how often I heard this two little words together and I honestly cannot say how often I was green with envy. Boredom... I'd be glad to be bored really.
Every holiday I take, I try to have at least one day, filled with absolutely nothing, a day of agonizing yet wonderful boredom, a day where me and a good friend of mine drive to the middle of nowhere so sit, stand or lay there without doing a single thing. No phone, no games, we don't even talk most of the time.
We sit there
We are bored out of our minds
...and it is wonderful.
Why am I writing this here? Because I wanted to give you all a big update about Ponyville Mystery, about so much wonderful Cards that'll be released over the next few months. I wanted to assure, that this project is far from being dead. But as I was writing it... I realized a few things.
I just moved to a new place and I have not even made myself comfortable there properly. I have a full schedule in my new job and I pour almost every single moment aside from that into eating, sleeping and working on Ponyville Mystery.
I am not bored...I haven't been bored for months.
I'm nearly the only one working on Ponyville Mystery, just my sister helps me out from time to time and the feedback for the last few artworks was non-existent. It leaves me with a sour feeling at night, to be working on so much unnoticed. Maybe I am trying to defy reality here, but I won't stop working on this. Maybe I'll have to work harder...maybe my pictures are not good enough.
I don't know.
But I know one thing for certain.
I want to be bored again.
