Hello all! I'm writing this journal as a mini-update on my life happenings.
This year so far has been a roller-coaster of excitement and disappointment, as well as a time of depression and joy.
I celebrated the birth of my first Nephew in January and the past 7 months I have enjoyed watching him grow.
I went on a trip with my Aunt and my 2 cousins to Disney World for their family vacation and I had a very fun time. Unfortunately the fun was cut short by a single phone call that has greatly impacted my life. My grandfather died on our last day in Disney World, he was found unresponsive in the bathroom. That was back in May. Upon my arrival back home, everything completely changed.
Work got much busier, I moved in with my Grandmother, went on a few vacations and I really started diving into other hobbies.
My art workflow has literally hit a standstill. I'm trying to find the motivation to push myself further and make use of my art degree but, it's been rough battling my emotions, depressions and stress to create. There are times when I feel like I failed as an artist. Or I feel like maybe my degree choice was not a wise one. Was art just a phase of my life? I really am unsure. I have lost all want and will to draw or do anything. My artwork has started going in reverse and all of my hard work has started to rust.
So, there you have it.
I am still around and frequently check my dA page. I just felt like pouring out some of what has been happening though.
