On a random side-note before I begin, it seems dA has deleted my latest journal entries before this one, so I apologize since some of this is recapping some things that were mentioned in those.
I thought I'd pop in just to give y'all a quick update and prove that I am, in fact, still alive, at least last time I checked. Life has been pretty crazy. I moved to Minnesota with my family, which has been a bit of an adventure in and of itself, since it was the third time I've moved in the last two years (first and second time being when I moved into an apartment and, consequently back out when my roommate got married), then I went to England for about a month and that was a blast! I got to hang out with a friend (and even made a new one) but one thing that was good for me, I think, was the fact that I was removed enough from everyone trying to influence my choices on what I wanted to do with my life that I was able to figure out a few things about my life and what I want on my own.
That being said, I have some projects in the works. I've had several in the works for a long time, but I feel like things have changed for me, I guess. I'm pursuing my stories, my writing and characters and I want to make a career of it, I decided. I could go more into it and talk about everything that led up to this decision, but it would be a long explanation which doesn't sound nearly as exciting as it actually was when things finally clicked for me, so I'll simply say this: I am going to be more active, but not just here. I'm working hard to develop stories and plot lines and, in with that, comes drawing and my artwork to help develop everything along the way.
Admittedly, I'm not proud of a lot of the stuff on here right now, and I've neglected my dA and worse, neglected my art in general way too much for far too long, but I can't really afford to do that anymore if I really want to do what I want to do with my life, so I guess this is to say that I'm holding myself more accountable, too. I'll be going through and purging a lot of junk on here over the next month or so and basically am going to try and start fresh without having to start a whole new account. So thanks to those who have stuck with me this far and are willing to stick around a little bit longer through the mess that I admit is going to happen while I try and fix this account and get everything on track. I really do appreciate each of you for that.
I'll do my utmost to keep everyone up to date with what is going on and again, thank you guys so very much.
