A New Creative Tool: My Wacom Tablet

Hey guys!
I know, I's been AGES since I've last posted something...Sorry! School worns me out a lot and I just couldn't find the time to write anything, but I'm back again! Today I want to present you my new creative tool and it's the Wacom Intuos Creative Pen and Touch Tablet!  I'm so happy because I wanted to have a graphic tablet for a really long time now (since december actually!).
Firstly, I have to say that I'm a complete beginner at this and I've never touched a graphic tablet before...even so, I'm excited to explore a new tool!
First of all the packaging:
I find it very appealing! When I went into the store and saw all these little doodles and sketches on it, I immediately fell in love with it and I just knew that this tablet would be right for me.
I've got the smaller version because I don't need a big and professional one since I'm still a beginner at this. The size is about 210x178x10mm which is around 2/3 of an A4 paper. The blue rubber band on the pen and the blue fabric tag can be switched with a black version, but I like it as it is.
When you install your tablet onto your PC and open it in Adobe Illustrator (for example), you can actually decide how sensitive you want the tip of your pen to be. In my opinion, the tip glides on smoothly over the surface and the pen fits nicely into my hand.
Overall, I think that this tablet is very user-friendly for beginners. Of course, if you have trained your skill and have some basic photoshop knowledge, I think that you could even create/illustrate on a high level with this one. Since it's small, it would be easy to carry around and you don't have to move your hand as much.
Here are my first little (tiny!) doodles with it:

(I have uploaded these pictures on my instagram account already^^)

I'm still in the middle of practising my skills and I mostly use my tablet for small doodles, but I will try to learn new methods to improve my style. So please stay tuned and look forward to see little doodles in my upcoming blogposts because I will definitely integrate them, too!
Learning a new skill might be hard and it will probably take a long time, but it's important to never give up. It's like this: No one is born with the skill to master everything right from the start, so cheer up, get up and practise it!

Do you have something you have always wanted to try and master? Any new techniques you want to control? Or are you like me right now and you are also a beginner at this? Comment down below!
