Cherish what you have, because you never know when it may be gone forever.
I apologize for the lack of activity these past few days, folks. I let my carelessness get the better of me and now I just lost all the motivation to draw. A simple bus ride home from class was all that I wanted last week, but I didn't get that. Instead, the drawstring bag I brought with me to class containing the sketchbook I used for 4 years and my tablet pen was left on the seat on the ride home. The bag itself was bought when dA still had a store on the site, so its as irreplaceable as the sketchbook with my memories from years back. While the pen is also replaceable, its a stupid reason to even consider replacing for such a careless mistake. I've contacted the Lost and Found services with the small chance that someone would've returned the bag, but alas, that situation doesn't look too promising either. I've called three times, and no luck thus far. People are greedy, even if it's just something as trivial as some notebooks and a mere sketchbook.
I don't know when I'll regain my spirit to draw again, or when I'll get a proper pen replacement. But as a final word, please do not be careless with your belongings. I don't want anyone else to experience this fuck up that I'm going through.
