Your ellipses are looking much better. Try to make your straight lines straighter. They have a wobbly feel to them. Learn to sketch lines to a vanishing point. That will help get the shapes be in perspective and also help you with short and long lines.

I tend to use my wrist for small lines but my entire arm for long perspective lines.

Practice making up more complex shapes. I made this a while back but it's an example of what I'm talking about.

@J6 thanks for pointing that out! I also did an hour of straight line drawing working on that today as well.

Update: Been at an internship at a small company (myself and one other design front most of the design work) for the past few months. I've been doing some furniture/graphic design and we started off sketching quite a bit, but recently it's been computer graphics and now we're actually building a trade show booth! Which is a good experience but my sketching has been getting rusty (so many things to do in a new, big city). So i sat down today and did some warmups and a sketch of my desk.
