Well it's been over a year since I wrote a journal and the last one wasn't too cheery so here it goes!
Life has its ups and downs as always. I've had a lot of rough spots this year but I've made it through and I'm officially done high school! I'm off to University this fall which means I'll probably fall off the face of the Earth even more... I came back from a trip to Mexico about a week and a half ago and it was the time of my life! I paid for the whole trip myself and went with my graduating class and there were tons of other schools there too. It was my first time leaving the country and seeing the ocean! To sum it up... there was a lot of drinking and swimming haha.
I was looking at my statistics today and apparently I have over 400 watchers! Not to go into boring old nostalgia mode but I remember when I first started out 7 years ago and had around 10. I know I've done my fair share of complaining on here (mostly about Warriors) but I really appreciate every one of you! I honestly don't think my art is that great but there's people out there who appreciate it makes me SO HAPPY. I know I haven't responded to comments for most of my DA career but I'm trying to be better at that these days. I'm really grateful for every view, favourite and comment! That's enough of the cheesy stuff... but I just wanted to let anybody who reads this know!
Also for everyone who commented on my last journal thank you for the support and kind words!
This is kind of random but there was a point this year where I deactivated my account. I was scared people who know me in real life would find it (most people don't know I like anime) I was scared of judgement but I realized it doesn't matter. I shouldn't feel ashamed for liking anime especially when drawing gives me such joy. I think I've found the perfect balance in my life of hobbies, schoolwork and socializing.
I also have a tumblr that I post on a lot more. Everyone should check it out though I would not blame you in the slightest if you didn't follow me. It is such a mess of random fandoms haha. starsleavethemorning.tumblr.co…
