Right now I’m sitting at my newly rearranged and upgraded work space. I’ve upgraded to a dual monitor set up with a new wireless keyboard and it is so much more comfortable than I have ever been before while working at home. I have a mitochondrial condition that causes me optic nerve death earlier than I should be experiencing it, and it is slowly degenerating. One of the hardest things for me to do lately has been working on my personal art projects after working a full day. My job requires me to use a computer screen all day and my eyes get tired. All of my passion work – writing, drawing, lettering, video editing, et al. – are visual tasks. It’s gotten to the point where sometimes my eyes just hurt too much to do much other than close them and just lay there. It’s really limited my ability to advance projects because straining my eyes on my fifteen point six inch laptop screen has been gruelling. With this new monitor, at nearly double the size and with a variety of really amazing eye strain reducing technology, damn! I feel like I can just work and work and work. I can size it large enough that I don’t even have to strain in the slightest. I feel that, at this moment, with this simple expenditure of money, I have set myself ahead of where I was projected to be without it.
Hopefully you’ll see a whole lot more content from me moving forward.
