Day 351: Wiggle hair
A few years ago I was in a really bad biking accident that I don't remember much of. When I did get out of the hospital, they told me that all I had, besides bumps and cuts and bruises, was a concussion. Yay! However, when I picked up a sketchbook soon afterwards, I realized that I could. not. draw. It was the weirdest thing but I seriously could not draw a single thing that looked like what it was supposed to be. Freaked me out for a few days. After a week or two, things were back to normal and I made a speedy recovery (I think). However, I remember and cringe at that Algernonian feeling of once doing something very well, then suddenly not being able to do it at all.
There's a point to this, I swear. This is the fifth drawing I've made today; the rest have been horrifically bad. Savin draws better than me today. I think I accidentally got a concussion somewhere between playgroup and dinner.
