I don't know how it is for others but I seem to be somewhat out of touch with myself, it took my years to find out what path I want to take in life, too many years I'm almost 25 :stare: I didn't realize my cravings to draw properly till age 20 :nuu: what a long series of failures I have become. I try to relish the small successes though.
But now that I know what I want, and I mean I know EXACTLY what I want, it's finally time to turn my focus (again) towards making that possible to achieve.
For about 7 long years I have failed in just about everything I've set out to do, in fact I have been so slothful I struggle to get out of my chair to
