2019 coming to a close
Hello everyone. It seems like I make one journal entry every year here on dA. Life in the real world is busy. I recently moved to Orlando, FL from my home town of Port Saint Lucie, FL. Big change. Transferred to the Orlando location of the same company i've been work for for over a year. But this location is much busier than the one down south. So I'm working much harder. I graduated Indian River State college with my AA in Art, and the reason I moved to Orlando is so I could go to UCF to get my bachelors in art and hopefully move on from there to get my masters. I'll be starting that in the spring of next year. With the move and dealing with some personal stuff, I having been creating as much as i would like, but I have actually created more in the past 3 months than i had in the month prior to me moving. I have more space up here to draw than i did back in my parent's home. the recent uploads i just did are almost everything i've done in the 3 1/2 months i've been up here. It's hard being away from my family, and my close friends down south, and having roommates is a new challenge, but i think it was good for me to get away. I can't promise I'll be more active. I would like to. I still have 1.1k followers on here. Much more than what I can get on Facebook or Instagram without paying for promoting. I suck at managing my social medias, i have no idea how people get thousands of followers on there lol But hey, if you guys have either facebook or instagram look up my pages. On facebook use my full name to better find me Alysia Ariana Harris, make sure you look for my art page because i will not accept friend requests on my personal account from people i don't know in person or well. On instagram i believe it's just Alysia the artist, but I bet if you searched Alysia Harris you'd find me too. I'd appreciate the likes and share if you can! And if you're n artist, I'll like you back!
I'm going to try and draw more. I have a few WIPs that i would like to finish before the year is out, because once i get into my spring classes, I'll probably be creating school projects more than personal pieces. But i have some digital works in the works, a prismacolor drawing that's almost done. I haven't done one of those in such a long time, because they take to much time. So hopefully you'll see more of that before the year is out. I still want art to be my life, even though I work a fulltime job as a merchandiser in a large company. I have got to try for my ultimate dream, because i don't want to settle for something else because it's already here. Wish me luck!
Hope all of you are doing well. Keep up the art!
My Dad lives near your old hometown. He lives in Vero Beach right now. When I went down to see him last month he showed me around the towns around it like Stuart, Jensen Beach, Port St. Lucie.
So my old AGM and now one of my best friends is from Stuart. After he would call all the time to the hotel, I memorized his number by heart knowing it was him. When my Dad had me meet is fiance, he told me to get to know her. After talking a bit, she said she was from Florida. I said "Oh, which part?" She said that I wouldn't know it because it was a small town, but she said she was from Stuart. I said, "Did you have a 772 area code?" and she was surprised I asked that. She said yes, and how did I know that. I told her, "My best friend is from Stuart and has a 772 area code, so I know where you are from."
