Ok, so let me start by confessing something that I've been hiding... I'm currently working my way off of academic probation. I made some seriously stupid choices when it came to schoolwork last year, and I'm paying the price for it. I am also working towards a major change, though (From computer science to communications). Obviously, I won't be able to make too much art, since I can't take too much time off from school work and helping my mother out. (She's growing old[er], and... let's just say she went into battle against a filing cabinet without my aid and now has a leg injury that's still healing.)
Another thing I want to get off my chest- I'm now on a prescription for ADHD medication. I'm hoping that it can help me focus on work like I should.
And one more thing... probably the biggest one of all. At one point, I had tried to retake a final to make up an incomplete grade for a summer Calculus course. I wasn't prepared for the right material, and needless to say, I flopped again. At that point, I was thinking nothing but "I'm a total failure. I'm still obese, my ADHD's keeping me from focusing on a damn thing, and I can't socialize anywhere except behind a screen and a fake name." I was honestly thinking about some... very horrible things at that point. If you want to talk to me about it in a PM, message me. Let's just say I've taken down the phone number of a local place since.
I know I tend to come off as pretentious sometimes, but I guess I just have trouble phrasing things the right way since I get nervous about saying the wrong things, so if there's anyone here I've annoyed or hurt emotionally, be it on purpose or by accident, I apologize.
So, basically, I will be at least commenting more often on here, but likely won't be posting a lot, aside from status updates and journal entries. Maybe in the summer, if I have the money to get enough points, I can start an interesting new camp. Hope I can be cool with you all again
