Hey! I am now on Fur Affinity if anyone is over there; its just going to be the same art that I post on here, but no warriors stuff. So, if you like my wolves and whatnot, and not so much my warriors stuff, there's the place. I have been meaning to make an account there for a while and then I did and never used it... Now I'm going to use it a bit; maybe I will post more furry art up there.
So, the title of this journal is Win Some, Learn Some. Sometimes when you work full time and go to college, you get burned out. That happened to me and I failed a big class. Long story short, I have to pay tons of moneys back to the Air Force and I felt ashamed for about a week. Lesson: sometimes you fail at stuff, don't feel ashamed, just do a new thing.
I DID learn that I do NOT, in fact, want to be a biologist. I have been obsessed with rocks since I took a geology class and I want to be a geologic engineer or geoscientist. Lesson: do not choose a path because it seems easy, do what you really want to do; carpe diem. I will attempt to make it into the Colorado School of Mines.
I have been feeling down about my art after the failure because I spent all this time studying and working so hard on this shitty course that I had no time for art; it was all for nothing. I have not seen significant improvement in my art for a year or two because I can't find time to do it... It used to be my release, but now I have a constant bout of art block. Lesson: make time! Stress sucks, so take a little time to be yourself.
I have not posted anything that is actually meaningful on here in a while; it makes me remember high school and how supportive some of you were back then. Sometimes it helps to write stuff out, even if no one reads it. I am good at hiding when I am down, but I feel better.
It has been a rough few weeks, but I am going to take it easy next semester and recover from the failure and stress. I have a long road ahead and I hope it is filled with more arts! ^_^
