I drew my son along with best grill waifu OC of friend UWU)/
Once upon a time, we had a continuous power outage in my area. For three days, the power would be down from 8AM to 6PM, sometimes even longer. It wasn’t much of a problem at work–we have a backup generator. But the third day happens to be Saturday… and my day off.
My phone’s battery was 5%, the weather was uncomfortably hot, and the urged to just draw and draw pushed me to grab my laptop, drawing tablet, and wallet and head out for the mall.
Now our mall isn’t too big, but it has a lot of places where you can just sit and chill. There’s also a quaint cafe that has its own wifi and outlet. So what else to do but buy a cup of matcha frappe, plop down to the most secluded seat available and stay there for 10 hours straight.
Not one of my most proudest achievement in life, but it certainly gave me a really interesting day. Seeing various people come and go, talking to their friends, while there’s me who’s just trying really hard to not scrap my 10th sketch for the past 3 hours and so.
Eventually, 20 mins before I left the cafe:
Best girl has been completed.
I ate, went home, sleep, woke up, then resumed work the day after that.
Then I realized, “Might as well draw my son to match.”
Several weeks later, and here he is.
I’d like to express my thanks to that cafe for allowing me to stay for 10 hours straight LOL. With how broke I am, I made it my mission to sip only at my drink every 30 mins. And once that ran out, I resorted to their free water LOL (granted, I also ate their very delicious pasta but golly that was sorta expensive HAHAHA)
And thus, I end my tale with the lesson: If the power outage is longer than 2 hours, chill at a nearby cafe.
