I've recently become acutely aware of how little I actually log on to this website, and, frankly, I miss it.
I thought I'd give an update to the select few of you that care enough to read these, and don't see me on a daily basis.
I'm in a weird place with my art. I haven't done as much writing as I should have, and when I have been writing, it hasn't been in the form of standalone pieces that can be easily posted on here. I've discovered a love for costume design, so, if I get around to scanning some of the pages of my theater journal, you'll get to see some of those. I'd like to say that I'm going to make a real effort to write and draw more, so that I can post a deviation more than once every six months, but art is one of those things that I can't force. It never turns out to be anything I'm proud of.
I've grown a lot over the past six months. I've seen the world transform into a place I don't recognize, saw myself dealing with types of things I swore would never happen to me, and lost control over a lot of things that I thought would always be in my back pocket. But I've found my writing voice, and produced a lot of things that I'm really, justly proud of. I've grown to become more comfortable with who I am, regardless of my relationship status, my pants size, or my grade point average. Naturally, these things still matter, but they are not controlling my life anymore. I've gone to hell and back for the people that I love. I am not my oppressor's opinion of me. I am me.
I still haven't upgraded to the new browser. DeviantART still yells at me about that, but I can still get around. I'm okay with firefox as it is.
I've started seriously thinking about college, and how I want to spend the rest of my life.
I wish that things were better than they are right now, but this is the best they've ever been.
Goodnight, ladies and gentleman. Stay lovely.
