United States
I've loved art all my life! I used to always make my own pop-up books and paper dolls as a kid, and loved to create stories. From that time on I always knew I wanted to get into art as a career. But I've been relatively unaware when it comes to anything in art. And growing up telling those around me that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up wasn't met with the most encouraging responses.

After being so discourage about being an artist, I would make myself look into other things, like becoming a teacher or vet. Luckily I was still young when this happened so after giving it up for like a year I was drawn back into art by the fascinating world of anime! This new style captured my inner passion for art I never really could get rid of.

More determined than ever, I went full speed ahead into my high school years to prove art wouldn't slow me down academically. I wanted to prove to those around me that I could work hard and succeed at anything I did! And I graduated 2011 top of my class!

Although I had the drive to go after my artist dreams, I wasn't prepared for the next step; I didn't know what in art I wanted to do! Although I'm not 100% sure --maybe like 90%-- after two years off I'm finally going to college! I'm currently majoring in Computer Animation, and I will see where I go from here.

Never give up on your dreams, no matter how off track you feel your life is getting.

Hello! Sup guys?

So yeah, once again I end up getting all panicked and stressed only for everything to work out fine in the end...I really need to find a better way to handle these things besides getting stressed out and overreacting. Although I only overreacted because everyone around me did. I'm usually a "cool cucumber" about other things anyway.

Anywho, now that that's over. It's winter!!! Well it's been winter for a while, but down here we are finally feeling the affects of it. It's actually cold throughout a day and we got like 10 snow flakes! It's insane! Slightly icy roads, schools closings...How will we survive! lol...Guess I'm not the only one who overreacts.

Although compared to up north this is nothing, people down here aren't used to this, and can't drive anyway, so it is better to be safe than sorry. And I was glad I didn't have to miss a day so I wouldn't have to drive an hour and a half in this weather the other day. My college is closed today too, but I don't have classes anyway. :P

Classes are a-okay so far. The art course is ok. It's interesting but I'm still finding it hard to give it my all between the distance from campus, my history class and just time in general. It's hardest to do excellent in a course doing things you don't see the overall point to. Craftsmanship is like the number one thing and I'm doing my best. But I still need to improve. I've put together an album on FB with all that I'm doing in the class. We have to document everything as part of our grade. WASH Album 

Bible Reading...?
I've been keeping up with my Bible readings, but with homework I've stopped making notes. So far I'm at Moses on Mt. Sinai getting all the instructions for the Israelites. I wonder how today would be if Jews or Christians still had to do sacrifices? I know if people started doing them again there would be sooooo much controversy about animal cruelty. But if it had never stopped how would people see it? Also, the Isrealites got to witness so much first hand yet they still struggled with just relying on God to provide. Just shows you human nature I guess.

That's about it for now. Just keeping at it, trying not to stress out and still following my dreams. I think the closer I get to my dream the clear it's been getting too. It's always been the dream to become an artist and go into art, but I really had no idea where I was going with that. But I'm figuring it out, and it's becoming clearer. So keep at your own dreams, even if you don't know which way to go yet.

Have A Blessed Day :squee:
