So I pride myself on being truthful to my friends; even if my family don't like it... because hey you guys are important to me too and while my family are my family and they always will be; sometimes they just don't understand. What I'm about to write next is just the truth, I'm not upset about it, I'm not worried about it, its just what has been going on in my life right now. So no panic guys and no hate family, kay?
I, my friends, have been living in a tent... for 3 months. Yes, with only power and water, no internet, phoneline or tv, I have been cut off from the world almost completely and yes, was technically 'homeless'.
It was only meant to be for two weeks but shit happens.
Good thing is now I'm not living in a tent (my mother burned it because she hated I was living in there in the first place) and I have internet once again!
I still don't really have anywhere that is my own (sleeping on my parents floor which is also the kitchen, living room and has a small adjoining bathroom) or a job with constant work so i can start making money to get out of this situation but with internet that's all about to change.
THIS IS ALL FINE THOUGH!!! don't worry about it cause I'm not!
Seriously; its all good! Just a hiccup in my life which is slowly resolving itself. I am still a lucky person. I have a healthy body by all accounts. I have always had a place to sleep even if its just on the floor and a place to stay dry from the rain. I've always had food too. And while it might not seem like much to some it is a hell of a lot more than other people have. So I hold on to that, and you guys should too.
No matter how bad things get or seem to be there is always someone out there dealing with a whole lot more shit than you, so be happy with the things you have!
This experience has taught me a lot, not just about appericating what you have but also a lot about myself...
#1 I don't know what I'm doing with my life.
#2 I don't know what to do with my life
#3 I really want to finish my degree in archaeology but probably cant cause I'm poor right now.
#4 I really want to go over to Greece and see if they'll hire me/let me help them excavate stuff (cause apparently you don't need a degree in archaeology to do it -i find out now
#5 Everyone wants me to go into teaching... I don't want to do this thing until I at least have a go at Archaeology (and I dont really like kids a lot, i mean their all right it small doses and to dress up, but their kinda cruel, sometimes creepy and well stupid cause they don't listen)
#6 I can't stand retail. Okay I actually like retail, helping customers and team members etc but I cant stand the job I'm in now which tells me off for doing those things.
#7 Art is probably not my fortay. I've gotten a lot better with extreme amounts of practice yes and I will always love doing it (and probably always will do it) but I've seen my two younger sisters work and I think that's always going to be their thing because to make a living at it you do need some level of talent and sometimes no matter how hard you work at a thing it just wont be as good as you wish it would be.
That said my art work plays a big role in my life because...
#8 I'm probably going to be a writer. I think my mum has been snopping through my scattered belongings (cause they don't have a place to live either) and has read some of my work cause all of a sudden she's telling me that this is what i should be doing with my life.
However I love to research and have already looked up this profession... there is a lot of things that could go wrong and I will always need a day job because there is no guarantee that anyone will want to read what I have written. I mean I actually love reading my writing because I always try to write in a way that I want to read and also revamping old chapters and stories which truth told some are so old from when I began writing them (age 14, about 10-11 years ago) need to be rewritten cause I have gotten a lot better. I usually hate anything I've written or at least I used to, but now I'm starting to really love my stories!
All to say I'm going to put up some stuff I've been working on and feel that its the best I can do. I want to know if people want to read it and if it's up to standard so please tell me what you think of it.
I will also be putting up art to go with it. Why? because i like to flesh out each of my characters fully and drawing them really helps me nail not only their appearance's but more about who they are as well.
Of course there will still be fanart's and other works because while I might have been cut off from the world for a while I still had my pencils and paper.
As some of you may have seen I've already put up a few sneak peaks of some but there's a lot more to come!
So that's me right now. This is where I am. Not great but not as terrible as it could be! and thats not bad at all
Anything you'd like me to draw? just say! I haven't got a lot of work these days so if you want something just ask, I may be able to help you out!
Okay guys thanks for reading and understanding, I'll hopefully be around a lot more so see you all soon!
