So sad...I have really fallen out of art. A year ago since I had 2 art classes I was creating & working a lot but it was more on the basis of me having to for assignments although it did allow me to reach within myself and expand my limits as far as technical skills and creative and critical thinking with art. 
My goal is to slowly let art seep back into my life over the course of the next few months. Since last Fall I have been doodling here and there but it hasn't been anything phenomenal. It is crazy when I think that 3 to 4 years ago in high school I seemed to be at my pinnacle as an artist. I ponder on the idea of if I had continued art seriously from my freshman year of college to now, I wonder how my art would have developed and matured? :( It makes me regretful but I think that once I became enveloped in college & the *real* adult world then that's when I lost the motivation and the passion and curious mind. My mind sucks right now. I'm not creative like I used to be, I'm not as smart, I'm not remarkable and I have barely used a pencil to draw a portrait or create anything on paper, much less any art in general. I know I'm young but in my perspective I feel like I am losing time..Which I'm not necessarily but I cannot shake off the feeling.

My screen name was a product of me trying to be creative. It's kind of meh. I'll change it one day.

July 2014:
Y'know when I was a young warthog, I was all into my anime, video games and manga. I fantasized about these worlds and drew and wrote. Now I'm just kinda eh....What happened to me??? Anyway, here is where you can find mostly older art I did when I was in high school (I'm entering my sophomore year of college this Fall and wow that is frightening when I actually type that and think about it). Damn.....

I want my art to represent something. Now it doesn't really. It's just technical work but hopefully soon I can develop something I truly call my own :) I don't want to lose my love for drawing.

I'm trying to keep up with my deviantart! I haven't draw so much in a year. Just some here and there. Now that summer is has gone pretty deep I want to try to get more drawing done. I want to try to sharpen my realistic drawing skills but I also want to draw and create from my mind, something I envision so much but have trouble doing :( It's really a shame I have fallen out of that, and it makes me upset to think about how much art has gone away from me since I started college and my first job. I don't have any summer classes so I am just trying to work as much as I can (even though that only amounts to about 20-25 hours a week :( ). It's good to work and hang out with friends almost every day. So this summer has been more exciting than my past ones, but I don't want to lose touch with who I have been. I miss drawing, manga, anime, and video games ahahah. I'm trying to slowly submerge myself back into that! I really don't want to lose those hobbies/passions of mine. Hopefully the rest of this summer I can enjoy more of those things. I'm still in my dorm, living out the rest of my lease. Then I will be back at home from the end of July to mid August with my family! I miss them so much, so I am very excited I'll get to be with them. Then I move into my new dorm...to start my sophomore year. Yeah I think I also have lost my witty writing and tone. Eng 1102 hurt me so roodly and I started  questioning my writing. Gone are the days where I was creative and had confidence in my writing and imagination. I remember when I used to think of characters and picture their lives and fantasy. I used to write and draw some fantastic things. Sigh...I'm mourning my past lol. Well I am still the same person. I'm just changing a little. Watching a lot of anime movies (mostly Ghibli) has imbued my mind with the urge to do something with my heart or soul. Something creative...I want to transfer myself to another world, a world of something surreal and unreal to us. I want to see more of this world definitely, that is one of my life goals, but I also always yearn to lengthen my grasp so I could maybe reach another one...
