Okay, so I'm now on the THIRD attempt to do a piece of art for my best friend's birthday. I botched the first two tries up. Or, rather, they looked okay, but I didn't really like them, so I scrapped them. Yeah, I'm a perfectionist, and I agreed to draw people for her - I'm not great at people. It's all good, though: this time, I've got three out of four pictures finished, and I'm pretty happy with those, so I only have the last one to do. One more A3 picture. How hard can it be?
Did I mention that this is the same friend who has decided to set me up with a guy she knows? I really don't know whether to be happy or frightened about that... On the one hand, he sounds perfectly nice (well, apart from the smoking, but I can forgive that, I guess), and if he's friends with my best mate, he shouldn't be put off by how much of a nutter I am sometimes, but on the other hand, I've NEVER had anything approaching a successful relationship of any sort (even platonic) with someone who my friends have tried to get me to go out with before. So, yeah, panicking a bit. It'll be fine. I hope. I still don't know whether he likes horses or not (if he doesn't then it's a no-go: I refuse to not have horses in my life). What have I gotten myself into?
