Working on applying to Texas State this fall! This year so far promises to be an interesting one especially if I make it in! Wish me luck!

My tumblr is mostly full of reblogs and random fandoms along with personal thoughts but I do also post some art on there. I hoping to post more sketches but first I gotta make them!
 Well it's been a while. A lot has happened and yet not at the same time. After some events I more or less made the 'discovery' that I likely have been deep in depression. As such I had little drive to do anything and even after this revelation I'm very slowly being more productive. (At least I hope I am.) There was a huge span of time in which I essentially produced nothing, art wise or other, which only added to my problem I suppose.

 Now however I'm doing what I can to make an effort to get out of my slump and try to improve the things I dislike about myself and try to beat this depression. 
 I would love to promise more art and so much more but I just can't. There's so many other things on my plate I should actually worry about and work on and I can't lie to myself about that or procrastinate any more than I already have.

 I intend to apply to a 4-year college soon and if I am able to transfer in then that's one goal achieved and hopefully will lead me on the road to completing even more goals. But I just have to take things one step at a time and see how everything goes.

 That's not to say I'm leaving or anything like that. (If anything it's just to confirm my lack of updates and posted work will be just as sparse as before.) As the title hopefully suggested, this is just a note on what's currently happening in my life. As well as just having a journal that's a bit more relevant and current.

 Those of you who have continued to follow me and appreciate my work though I can't thank you enough. I know I hardly ever respond to added favorites and such. The truth is I just never really know what to say. Thanks never seems nearly enough but I'm too shy to say much more and I just end up twiddling my thumbs as I wonder at the idea that anyone would really like my work so much. 
 So again thank you, thank you so much and I hope you will continue to enjoy what little work I post as well as all the other wonderful artist on this website, including yourselves! I know it can be hard, but remember to love your own work. Even when you think it stinks remember you have to start somewhere. I suggest doing something an artist I admire mentioned, take out your last piece (or something older!) and stare at it real good. Undoubtedly you'll spot all the things you wish you could change and all the mistakes you may have made. But stop that! Instead I want you to find at least ONE thing you're happy with in the piece! Take that one thing and run with it, revel in it, enjoy it, you've gotten this far and you've got something to show for it!

Enough rambling from me though, again thank you all for everything. I hope we can all enjoy more art together!
