Haha jk (not really I saw them twice in in 2014 I never joke about my bsb love)
But I'm back! And posting again! and being active again! Why did I disappear, you may ask? The answer is simple! Severe depression! Haha yeah, that lasted for about 2 and a half years, basically from not long before I graduated high school all through my time at my first (non-art) college. It seems ridiculous to think that my depression abated entirely just because I came to SCAD and now live in a place with regular rainfall (or like literally anywhere that isn't Las Vegas. Never wanna go back.), and it's not gone entirely. I'm still struggling with other mental health issues as well, but being in a creatively encouraging environment has had a great impact on my happiness. Here, I'm feeling for the first time since high school like I DON'T wanna die, I wanna make cool shit instead. Ahhahaha yeah it was bad for a while. Also dated like 3 people in the time I've been gone and realized I'm basically only into girls, guys are too high-maintenance for me and also GIRLS (who are chill and dont creep on u after breakups). Explains a lot we all knew already.
I've started my animation classes too, they're amazing. I've taken a couple with Troy Gustafson, he was an effects animator for Disney during the Renaissance. He likes to bitch about how he had to do the fire in the scene in Mulan where Mushu first appears to her all by himself. He's amazing. I wear a wrist brace because of his classes and I CAN'T STOP DRAWING BC IDC IM GONNA DIE ANYHOW. His classes in particular have helped me remember why I'm doing what I am and where I wanna go in life. I'm really excited about it but also really anxious about the future, because I'll be a senior in fall.
So, as Death teaches us all, the world keeps spinning, and the tales keep turning, and people come and people go, but they're never forgotten. Make sure you don't forget yourself or why you love doing what you do.
