I hate having to start off each entry like this, but it really has been long time no see, huh?
How are you all? ^^ I really have missed you guys but honestly, it's been a rough road unlike any other haha though in real life it might seem like something really small. And maybe it is, but for now it's pretty hard to look past what's happened so I'm just taking it day by day.
Long story short, I went through several rounds of counseling during the summer and many doctors appointments upon my return back to the states due to some major reverse culture shock and some events that were depressing me at home. On top of that, I ended up meeting my first boyfriend and we just broke up a couple weeks ago, which is still proving hard on me more than I thought. You hear about breakups often and it's something that everyone goes through, usually, but despite knowing that and my having been the one who decided to end it, it was definitely a feeling of loss that I wasn't prepared for and I still think I'm not over it yet. This coupled with some problems at home with my parents and a ton of schoolwork and you get a pretty stressful formula
I've rediscovered my love for drawing again as a result of what has happened and I decided to sign up for a Secret Santa event that I was invited to this year ^^ I have many art pieces that I owe people but I haven't drawn properly in so long that I feel like I've almost lost my touch and don't know where to begin anymore, especially involving color. I guess that'll be something that I really have to work hard to get back on track for since I have so many art pieces that I wish to create and that I owe to people whom I care about so much.
I'm going to clear my DA messages and start anew so that I may slowly ease myself back on here, but I just wanted to say thank you so much to those of you who have stuck by me. I love you all so so much. ^^
Also, thank you to everyone who wrote me sweet birthday messages! I didn't reply to them, but rest assured that I read them.
Take care and hopefully you'll see art from me soon <3
