(I'll be bolding main points so that you don't have to go through this whole thing with filler text...)
Frankly, I don't have a lot of time dedicated to this place anymore. I want to be more active, don't get me wrong, but there's always something else in the way either it be school, family, or just other interests there always seems to be an excuse to not check into my account for a few days at a time.
This journal is to just kind of say that, yes, I realize my inactivity and to let you all know that I didn't die or anything, I'm just quiet as of late.
To update on my life a bit,
I've been debating to major in web design and/or graphic design and recently I've even contemplated in minoring in music education just because I would love to be a choir director (as I have a love for choir and teaching). My dream career is to be a free lancing designer with a teaching job, but that might take a while.
I am still drawing every once in a while, and actually, today, I got a new computer! So I'm excited to see how my tablet will work and how my drawing habits will be affected by being on a bigger screen and such.
Of course, I still have a love for gaming, so I've been doing some of that too... in fact, I'm even in a video game design class right now and it is very interesting, though I doubt seeing myself going into that industry since I'm mostly an artist not a programmer, and a video game artist is a VERY hard job to grab. I find that web design would be a lot more reliant and easier to deal with (and I like it more too anyway). I took the game design class and the web design class in my school to basically reassure my hunch of myself liking web design more, but video game design is still definitely fun! (and I think it's hilarious that I'm the only girl in both classes, video game design having well over 20 people and web design coming to a total of 5 people. Seriously, I'm not sure if I should feel awkward and become a guy or have fun with it. XD ).
I've also applied to the college I want to go to already, but I'm still waiting on the reply, it's freaking me out honestly, but I'm assuming I should be able to get in since I'm ranked 39 out of 700+ kids in my school and the school isn't very selective, it's just an overall nice catholic university that's nearby and small that I like.
And I know this sounds crazy, but I want to start a deviantART series/project of some sort that I'll be fully dedicated to. I want to get involved in a personal project that I will actually keep up with... I've started a lot of things but I never seem to stick to them for as long as I hoped I could. Maybe some tutoring lessons on basic things? News? Podcasts? Singing Covers? Speed Paints? Reviews? Back to Let's Plays? Features? Something to do with games or Magic The Gathering Tabletop gaming? I don't even know anymore! D: I seem to like too many things to where I can't decide what I want to focus on anymore...
As for projects that I'm working on as of late,
my old stories are still floating around a bit, I still do plan on making that visual novel of one story that I haven't really talked about, and I'm still an active staff member on that minecraft server that I play on 'cause a lot of the people that I play games with are also on that server, so we talk all the time on skype.
I don't know, maybe I'll re-purpose ZealZone for something, or maybe I'll be able to get back to that group soon and keep doing what it's doing now. I'm just overall kind of a mess and I can't wait for summer for me to realize what I want to do in life. >.<
Well, there's my life update. If you said tl;dr, basically I'm a confused teenage girl that wants a project to work on, but only one so that I don't stress myself out and I can work on it whenever I don't have homework.
I hope everyone is still doing well, and I hope to get back into contact with all of you. I feel bad that I haven't been able to communicate with a lot of you even though we've grown close in the past. I hope we can rekindle that relationship and I can't wait to get back into this community.
With much Love,
P.S. If there's anything you want me to look at or that I should know please comment and tell me. My inbox gets so full that I never really look through it carefully enough without deleting SOMETHING important... I'm really sorry. >.<
