A lot has happened since my last Journal in April. It's amazing how things can change so quickly in the manner of a week. Just a week ago I was in school and things were ok, but I withdrew on an impulse due to several reasons that were only mounting up slowly. I know shocking right? I just found the school I was at was so mediocre and the students were incredibly obnoxious. Always believing their own work is above everyone's. While I can't say my work is better than anyone's, it's not even that aspect that bothered me either. It's the lack of creativity and underwhelming performance of my peers and instructors that gave me this bad vibe. I felt like some of my professors had no idea how to do their jobs and gave me heinous projects that took so much time and dedication to complete with little creativity and elbow room for me to express my own artistry into. The tuition costs and the fees of living expenses were also difficult to deal with. Not to mention trouble going on within my family and the problems I was facing day to day. It was very stressful. Even more alarming was the aloneness as far as having friendly "friends" there which was hard to come by. Whenever I did come by good friends I was presented with new problems and issues. Not to mention my adversary which is math, I absolutely hate the concept of it. Even after 6 years of not practicing it, I found I was still good at it. It's just I don't like the general use of number crunching at all... lol Yet despite this, I found myself slowly drifting off into a coma of no creativity and I couldn't even write or draw to make myself happier. The whole situation just sucked.
Now being out of school, I am handling all the problems at hand with a clean slate and while arduous, I am overcoming them over time. The creative juices are certainly flowing and I have even taken up new hobbies (and some I had to abandon due to moving out) so I'm working out and also eating healthy. I'm less stressed out, worried, and most of all that lonely feeling is going away. I've been talking to a very interesting person and as of late we're talking more than ever. Which has come to no surprise as in the patience of time, all things come eventually.
I'm still working on Volunsaga, but as my magnum opus. I feel it's kind of taken the backburner as far as the string of events go. I've taken up new projects and have even started delving into freelance artistry. I am working on a book cover that I was hired to do. I'm going to get paid handsomely and not to mention you might be able to see my work on shelves soon!
It might even open more doors for me as time goes on. Who knows, hopefully things just get better and better. Y'know?
I've been building a list of projects it seems on what to work on and I fully know well a lot of people have been patiently waiting on things I've "said" I'd make for them. Sorry, and thanks for your patience! Yet I am working on them and I will be updating my gallery with all new works! So stay tuned! Thanks guys. Take it easy!
