The latest status of guinea pigs
Our two guinea pigs, Pinky and Squash, still live separately on the lower and upper floors. The cage I bought is a wooden cage with a two-story structure. I put a liner on the drawer-shaped floor and clean it every day. Since the two of us are living separately, I am concerned that the two of us will feel lonely or depressed.
I miss being in the cage with each other, but they don't seem to miss them at all. Currently, it is divided into two spaces by blocking the ladder between the cages, but I hope that they will live together in one space in the future. However, if you put the two of them in a wide playpen and let them meet, as soon as they see each other, they become wary of each other and run to bite them. I don't think it's time yet.
And recently, I found a part where the hair is missing under Pinky's chin as shown below.
When I looked around, there were no lumps, lashes, or signs of mold, and my skin was pink and clean, so I left it for a few weeks instead I bring him to the animal hospital. Of course, we keep the cage more clean.
Among guinea pigs, long-haired pigs's hair falls out often than short-haired ones. And especially in the case of Pinky, he has a habit of biting the wire in the cage. He grabs the cage wall and shakes it to make a sound. I think this habit probably caused hair loss in certain areas. So I decided to leave the door open for a while and observe. After a few weeks, I could see new hairs growing on the empty skin.
One of the things I learned while raising guinea pigs is that they both have different personalities and habit. Pinky drinks more water than squash. Wet the surroundings and enjoy jumping over them. However, squash likes to drink relatively little water and keep the surroundings dry. I think these two are too different to live together.
Pinky, who likes to be open in a wide space, is always out and does not run away or hide in surprise whenever people pass by. But squash likes remote, nook and dark places. We made a small studio for squash.
Freelance Art Job Sites
Freelance artists are contractors that you hire in the arts. You can work in any medium, but most freelancers work in graphic fields such as illustration, design, or photography.
Rather than hiring a single company or organization, freelance artists employ their talents to a wide variety of clients. Some work with agencies or small groups of regular customers, but are self-employed.
The freelance arts field can be more challenging and fulfilling than a standard-paying job. A freelance artist must be self-motivated as he not only handles artistic tasks, but also needs to run a business effectively.
Like all artists, freelancers should have innate talent with knowledge of popular artistic trends and styles. A freelance artist should have a very flexible style that can be adapted to a variety of assignments.
Patience and communication skills are also assets, as some customers may not know exactly what they want or may not articulate their desires clearly.
Below are some of the more well-known freelance artist hiring websites.
Finding beauty in everyday life!
If you look at the dictionary meaning of "beauty", it is a characteristic of an object that gives sensual pleasure, and it is said that it is a state of harmony that attracts the heart.
Although it is difficult to uniquely define beauty, it has a variety of meanings and interpretations ranging from a simple impression of nature and objects sensibly to an emotional feeling for a work of art or an evaluation of the ethical value of human behavior.
Above all, finding and enjoying this beauty in the trivial daily life is essential to achieving happiness.
Happiness can be said to be the result of long-term influences from various factors, such as genetic factors, human relationships, and religion. On the other hand, pleasure is a simple and instinctive reaction felt in a very short moment lasting from 30 seconds to an hour or two. It's hard to find reasons for happiness, but things that make you happy are easy to spot.
Finding a happiness the little things in life means that we have to focus our attention on what nurtures and sustains us in life. On everything that brings us even the smallest amount of pleasure. It also means practicing gratitude by noticing these everyday things that we take for granted so easily.
Then, what is the little happiness in everyday life for me? It's always drawing.
Sometimes it is difficult to have time to draw, and there are fears that I will not be able to make a living through painting, but when it comes to painting, I am the happiest than anyone else.
About changing majors.
Statistics show that in the US, 76% of students change majors at least once. 50% change majors twice.
There are quite a few students around who want to change their careers because they think that they are not the major they dreamed of and expected even after passing through the huge competition and entering the university.
There are many reasons to change your major, but it is basically because the following the reasons work together.
(1) I do not like my current major.
(2) The major you want to go to seems good.
(3) There was a major I wanted to go to, even though I was forced into it because of the competition rate at the university or the recommendation of a parent.
(4) The major I chose was not the best option, but the next best option.
First, keep in mind that changing majors is a very expensive option that requires reinvesting several years of your time. Therefore, since the cost is large, you should be very careful in choosing to change your major. Especially when you dream of changing into a major that has nothing to do with it.
So was my case. I majored in nursing in college and worked as a nurse. Afterwards, I received a master's degree in medical informatics and worked as a researcher before moving to Germany. However, there was a turning point in my life in Germany. I made my debut as a painter, and no matter how much I thought about it, I was convinced that this was my path like fate. And for 10 years without thinking about anything, I only drew pictures, thinking about what painting really meant to me. After much deliberation, I decided to study again. Of course, this is a completely different major than the previous major.
In my experience, it is not easy to ignore undergraduate majors. This is the very foundation of life, and it will follow you for the rest of your life. I am often given time to explain my major or field of expertise in the life of a person whose decision at that time was due to the illusion of my moment.
I also hope that my undergraduate major and my current direction are somehow related. Even if there is no objective relevance, it is true that because I learned nursing, my understanding of human beings and life is deepened and it helps me to draw pictures.
However, this is an emotional aspect and a result that cannot be calculated with a visible indicator.
But that doesn't mean you can't change your major to a completely unrelated major. It's a really cool challenge. And there should be no prejudice that the two paths are not related at all and only run parallel to each other just because they go on a different path that does not match the path they have taken.
Just by looking at the well-known anecdote of Steve Jobs, we can answer the question of learning something completely unrelated to one's major.
Calligraphy was the class that Jobs enjoyed during his school days. He said he liked the design of the letters of the alphabet in various ways. Jobs loved computers, but he also loved those humanities elements. That's why he pursued Bob Dylan's music and hippie ideas. However, most people just separate the two. Computers are computers, and humanities are humanities. Just like an office worker separates his private hobbies from his public work. However, the peculiarity of Jobs is that he tried to incorporate the visible parts of his life that had nothing to do with computers at first glance.
Therefore, various fonts using vector graphics were applied to the Macintosh operating system. These fonts made with direction values, not made with dots, look natural even when enlarged or reduced. So Macintosh users could enrich their lives with beautiful, cool fonts. This technology also changed the printing industry. PostScript technology that can print text and pictures on a computer screen as it is with a laser printer was developed. Since then, the Macintosh has created and led the electronic desktop printing (DTP) market. Almost all books today are predesigned on a computer and sampled on a printer.
What if Steve Jobs had decided that he didn't need to take calligraphy classes because he was a computer student? Just by looking at this example, you can see that it is more helpful to learn something that is based on one's own attraction, one's own philosophy. They may not be of any help right now, but these things pile up and build up to create my own knowledge.
Another thing is that, in the end, whether it is a previous major or a new major, the fact that one can become an expert by enduring the learning process with a lot of patience does not change. In other words, you must have confidence in your own path and walk firmly on that path without being swayed by any temptation.
