I’m a vampire. I hardly ever sleep at night. Instead of snuggling under my covers like everyone else, I’m left sitting in front of my drafting table, doing plates in the wee hours of the morning. It’s not like I have much choice. I could work on them in the afternoons when I get home from school, but distractions are always my problem.
The internet is one distraction for me. I can get myself hooked online for several hours, forgetting about my plates that need to be done. I often have to cram just to finish a plate in time for its deadline. I spend too much time with my eyes glued to the computer monitor and too little time on my plates. Pretty sad, huh?
But besides the cyber world, my ultimate distraction has got to be the people around me.
I dislike being disturbed. When I draft, I like to work straight. I dislike people coming up to me asking me to do things for them while I’m in the middle of a plate. I get that a lot here. Everytime I get started on a plate, someone always barges in the room to bug me. It’s simply annoying. I can never get through my plates without someone asking me to do things for them in between.
That’s basically the reason why I like to draft at night. With everyone asleep, I have the perfect time to work on things. No distractions. Noone calling out my name every 30 minutes.
For a lot of people, it’s not an ideal time to be working, but it works for me.
I’m a night person and I find that my mind and creative juices work better at the oddest time. Mainly because I can think straight without anyone butting in between. ^^;;
So yes, those baggages under my eyes can get bigger and more visible if they want. I’m too comfortable working at night to change the habit. XP hehe!
Extra: I have 3 new plates up in my extra section.
