It’s coming to an end, I promise

My apartment is almost empty. Matt and I stopped by to pick up mail and for the first time I had this little sadness that I was leaving it. It was all open and empty and less dungeon-like. Matt said “It’s just trying to trick you and get you back, but if you moved back in it would just be back to all it’s old ways.” Really, I think I just love how it is empty and doesn’t have any of the “stuff” that fills and weighs down the space. It’s still dark and I am amazed at how even when I turn on all the lights there, it is still so dark. The new place is so bright and cheery and for that I am in love.

I have been watching a LOT of TV. This sucks. I like to think of myself as more of the “kill your television” type of person. Normally, the only time I watch TV or DVDs is while working on other stuff. But, while I have been moving, I’ve felt too guilty working on artwork when I should be moving instead, so, I have been watching it. My new favorite show is Jon and Kate Plus Eight. If you aren’t familiar with this show it is a reality show on TLC about a family that has two 6 year old twins and six 3 year old sextuplets. I can watch this show back to back to back and often do. I love the dynamics of Jon and Kate’s relationship. My favorite kid is Maddy, she is so misunderstood. And even though she is one of the twins and should then have first born characteristics, she is SO a middle child and thus the Robyn of that family.


Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at and on my own personal website I also have an online shop where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (

  1. Congrats on all of your progress! I am house-sitting in a home with cable (which I don’t have at home). So even though I brought loads of projects to work on, today I watched 4 episodes of Top Chef in a row. One-sixth of my day!!! Blargh.

  2. I think television was invented to intellectually dull the masses making them complacent and not think for themselves. People are told how to think, what to buy, how to act, where to shop. Does this stop me from watching?!? No way! Jon and Kate is a favorite and America’s Next Top Model, Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth are my guilty pleasures for the week.

  3. Congrats on the move, but don’t feel bad abandoning the old place. It is being tricky just like how hair suddenly looks perfect the day before a hair cut is scheduled!
    Jon and Kate Plus 8 is ALWAYS on! At least you haven’t been duped into trying Step It Up And Dance.

  4. Nobody is going to convince that tv is “evil”. There’s plenty of good stuff on to balance the bad. :) So long as you aren’t spending your whole life in front of it, it’s ok.

    Wouldn’t it be totally weird if there were 3 twins and 8 sextuplets? ;)

    And finally, my sister, I think it’s hilarious that you identify with Maddy. She is definitely the most dramatic one. LOL. My absolute favorite was when she had the meltdown at Disney World.

  5. Yeah, I don’t think television is evil or anything, I just want to be productive and television is just another thing that keeps me from being productive. I know that there are plenty of good shows on. My favorites include 30 Rock, Lost, Medium, Little People in a Big World. These were all favorites before I even got cable, so that tells ya how even without cable I found a way of still watching TV. Now you can add to it, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, and basically everything on TLC, a majority of stuff on Discovery, lots of great stuff on AMC, PBS and the Cartoon Network. What disturbs me is that I have caught myself watching a couple episodes of The Hills! This show was a mystery to me before and now I know “characters” on the show and everything. That problem needs to be nipped in the bud and quickly.
