hello.

a reach-out by Artimidor sent me this way- a picture actually.
I haven't been here in a good long time- the last time I was here, Art had sent me an E-mail about Lucirina and I came over to visit, but didn't leave any posts. I felt like I'd been gone so long, I didn't have anthing to say that hadn't been said. So I didn't.

I'm at a strange point im my life. I'm holding down a good-paying job that has nothing to do with my ultimate goal in life, and am moving- again, Only to move to a permanent residence in six months.
Having to spring from an easy-as-pie college student to a full-grown, bill-paying adult was indeed a big change. But after six months of this, I think I'm getting the hang of it and am starting to find myself with snippets of free time.

My eyesight had always been going, and just after Christmas I finally got Glasses, hence the pic update at Elfwood. I love them, and It's a whole new world now that i can see. I also got a scanner for christmas, and that also got me live and kicking over there. I hope to get a wacom soon, and I'll finally feel up to par with all the illustrating masters over here. Maybe then I can get a real pic up! heehee!

In May, I graduated from the Academy and now have a Bachelors of Art degree in Illustration/ Animation. Living out here in Gilroy woth no vehicular knowledge has left me high and dry in the Art Industry, but I've been told no one gets hired in their first year out of school, so I just keep drawing and refining my skills.

In the meantime, I'm working as a waitress in an irish pub. Good pay, good food and great people. I had quit the Target job just before Thanksgiving, so no more zombie days working two jobs just to make bills. So now, I've got a good amount of free time ( double it of I don't sleep in!) and have been arting around, refining my illustration skills.

But don't think I haven't thought of Santharia. Sometimes I catch myself wanting to re-write the Eophyrhim ( god, they need a BAD work-over) and finishing the School of Ames. I just hadn't had the time.

Not only that, but i was kind of scared of coming back. I'd been here for so long, sure. But things were changing so much, so many things that were being developed and refined, that I wasn't sure what was going on anymore. It seemed that slowly, the things I had made were just... slipping away into the background, and that I couldn't make anything new without stepping on someone's toes.
(geez, we remember that right?)
I guess that's my fault- to keep something alive you have to maintain it and I wasn't really doing that, I just made them and let them go. I guess in a sense, The dedication and responsibility was scaring me, not to mention wearing me thin.

Ultimately, I'd like to say I'm coming back. But I don't really know just yet. I want to. I'd love to. But for the moment, maybe I'll just lurk about, test the waters. See if this is still the place I enjoyed coming to, or if it has changed too much for me to enjoy.

yup.
that's all I have to say for now.
See you guys around, I hope.
