December came alongside the cold to the end of the year. It was where everyone reflect on what they had done in the year of 2023 and prepare for the better or worst in the coming year of 2024. A lot of stuff happened, good one and bad one. From one side of the world to the other. Unfortunately Lintnaya Newspaper could not cover all stuff that happened in the year of 2023 since our newspaper just started in August this year. But that doesn't stop us to write about random things our writer decided to write about.
December started like a lion, roar and splash anyone who dare to stand in-front of it. Busy to be lazy as always with extra cold and weird weather that keeps going back and forth. This month was where illnesses start catching up everyone who were not ready for it. Lintnaya was one of them. It was not as dangerous as the last year's virus but it has disabled Lintnaya movement to minus one for a couple week of the month. All started from the busyness working on design and animating sprite for someone else game, Lintnaya confessed that working on such stuff actually is fun, but for some reason December came and wiped away the motivation and gave Lintnaya a whole lazy virus and forced him to have a long nap and sleep. Lintnaya could do something about it but he chose not to, the kind of adult he should not be. Luckily the task he should do didn't have any tight deadline, therefore he could lazying around and be a sloth for once in a while. Not to mention Lintnaya had spent some of his saving to finally bought stuff for his desktop, and finally new upgrade. All stuff he bought were mean to help him work more efficient, healthy and productive. But without he realized, shopping and set up all those stuff actually drastically consume a lot of energy, to the moment he forgot to breath and overwhelmed himself. A whole week spent on choosing what to buy, setting them up and go to bed feeling overwhelmed.
After two days of recovery Lintnaya slowly came back to another boring day that cycles and repeats. But now with the new upgrade he can always look up every time he woke up in the morning. No longer needs to bend over on the desk. Much larger, better and accurate color view. Somewhat nice touch feeling on finger tips, and also decent aesthetic storage stuff. All of those upgrade came with little bit consequences that Lintnaya needed to think about for a while. First of all, will Lintnaya able to use those stuff wisely to enhanced creative production? Will everything last long enough until the day he needs to move somewhere else? The future is a mysterious place for all human existed in the current time. Lintnaya is not an exception. Sometimes thinking about future is scary, but not thinking and simply just ignore it, is way horrible and terrifying. And after few days just thinking, absorb and silent Lintnaya finally came with a conclusion that all stuff that happened those couple weeks was worth it. And for the future, hopefully it will become useful tool either for creative work or other hobby he decided to do. And because of those stuff that happened in the couple week of this month, Lintnaya unable to published new artwork in any section. He drew some stuff but all of those are still in "work in progress" state, maybe later in the new coming year Lintnaya able to finish them and make more stuff in the future. Not a promise he needs to hold on, but the things he needs to always remember and of course do it. And lastly one thing Lintnaya wants for 2024 is a simple nice blue sky. With extra cloud could be fun!
