In an attempt to acquire new hobbies, I am teaching myself to draw. I was bemoaning my lack of drawing abilities some weeks ago to Robby, and he told me that if I was really that upset about it I should learn how to draw. And I was like, "But you can't just do that! People are born with the ability to draw and the rest of us paeans are just fucked!" He quickly disabused me of this irrational notion that I have held for my entire life and told me to just start copying pictures as a way to teach myself some basic stuff. So that's what I'm doing! I shall have to be sure to keep it up. Perhaps if I am not too embarrassed I will post some attempts to chronicle my progress (assuming there is any).
