Hey guys, long time no talk.
I've decided to leave my Grad program. I've given the reasons so many times that I'm tired of giving them, but please know that it's not because I didn't try my absolute hardest. Soooo... I'll probably be around a lot more. I'm mostly disappointed in myself. I'm not a quitter and this move is one of the most uncharacteristic things I've ever done in my life–– just giving up. But I really did not see any other option, so I decided to cut my loses and get out before the loans I amassed grew any more. Also, before I made the decision to leave, I quit my job to have more time for school work. So basically I'm jobless, have no income, hardly any money, etc. It's literally the worst situation I've ever been in. I'm not going to be sleeping in a gutter any time soon, but I have about a month and a half TOPS to get my shit together, or that may be reality. Sooo... real life sucks, yeah?
On a sort of related note, I've stopped my DA subscription for the first time since I joined DA eight years ago. I haven't been posting any art lately (though I do have a few WIPs currently) and also with my loans and the fact that money is tight, it's just not the top priority. Once I get stuff together and actually start putting artwork up again, that may change, but for now this may be the last pretty journal you will see for a while.
Some good things have been happening in my life too, by the way. I hasn't all been gloom and doom, I promise! I finished writing the first version of my manuscript for a story I've been working on for years, and I finished editing it! I'm making those changes on my computer, then I'll give it to my mom to edit (she's smart like that), then a friend (if she agrees to help) and then when it's as good as I can get it, I may try to see if any literary agents would be interested in helping me take it to the next level. That's a long shot and a pipe dream, but right now it's keeping my spirits up, so I'll take it.
Peace. Groups Friends and Other Awesome Peeps
