Hi guys! oh my. How are you guys!!!!!????? What a crazy adventure it has been. After nearly a bajillion cups of coffee, many tears, and lots of granola bars later, here I am working on finishing my first year at college and moving closer to my degree. I cannot believe how much the time is flying by... getting better at this adult thing but oh oh my, the struggle is real. Anyways, I wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone and say a few words. I have missed my deviantArt fam bunches
The other reason for writing this journal is kind of a reflection I had that I wanted to share. For some reason I logged on tonight, which I have been pretty inactive, but anyway, I wanted to pop in to say hello. I somehow ended up looking through my old journals. Wow. After not being here for a while, and reading them, it was pretty amazing. I have changed a lot as a person, and seeing all that I have written has been like opening a diary you haven't read in years.
A lot of you don't know, but when I first joined deviantArt I was very lonely. ...had just moved to another state. Felt lost, no friends, didn't know what I should do in life etc. After reading these journals and comments I realized just how treasured everyone here has been to me. It's crazy to think that I had online friends I could talk to, who I'd never met, like I had known them in real life for years. Even though real life times were hard, I could come here, do art, chat, and be filled with a sense of meaning and purpose. To those going through stormy seas, keep rowing. There is always hope, even when it feels like all hope has been completely drained out.This place has given me great joy in my life. People here are so incredibly kind and supportive. I just want to say that deviantart is truly a wonderful community of compassionate souls. I can't tell you how many random people I didn't even know before, were there for one and other. Even though there are qualms, deviantArt is a very special world. Thank you so much for everything, guys I would tag people, but honestly there are far too many to tag. You know who you are (;
But anyways, yeah. That's my little tidbit. (: I truly hope everyone has been doing good (and hopefully having a little fun along the way too)! Please drop by sometime and say hello. I would love to catch up!
Until next time,
