Hello, everyone! How have you all been? Oh man, it's been a while. I had literally 2500+ messages in my Inbox (mostly deviations from groups I was in; decided to finally unwatch them).
My life has been...interesting...to say the least.
First of all, my girlfriend and I are doing very well and for the first time I am in an actual serious relationship that is actually going somewhere. It makes me extremely happy. I Skyped with her parents, she met mine, everything is going well, etc.
Second, I have applied for exchange in Japan. Right now, I am working my ass off to try to raise my GPA, but other than that, I just have to wait and hopefully get accepted. If I get accepted, I'll be studying there for 11 months, and after a long struggle, my parents finally decided to support me on my decision, which makes me and many others very happy.
Third, I think I am going to stop making art. I am sorry, but I am just not good at it, and I don't have time to practice it. I have "more important" things to attend to at the moment and I just don't think I will be making art anymore - or at least, anytime soon. I won't close my dA account down, but I won't be be uploading anything new for a long time. I am working a lot on my Senior Thesis Project right now, so I guess that's the only artistic thing I'll be doing, and once it's done, I may upload it here.
That's all for now. If you have any questions, concerns, tips, requests, etc. or just want to talk to me, please PM me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
