EDIT: I am currently considering switching to a new account. What I need is a brand new, fresh start. However, I am still swaying to and fro as I'm not sure what to do exactly. Nowadays I spend more time drawing nature and wildlife and landscapes than I do people and I am not sure all my watchers will like this sort of change.

In the mean time I want to get back in contact with some of my watchers - do you have e-mail?

----------------------


Well, life for me has pretty much turned around. I used to live a secluded life and I found a lot of comfort and friends from the internet. Now, however, I've realised that the internet no longer serves the same purpose that it did all those years ago. I don't have masses of friends in real life, but I have met more people, and grown in confidence in order to build on those friendships and I am now in my first relationship which is proving really stable. As a result, I have less time to spend on here and I will soon be going to University, and will hopefully be going out more and enjoying things as they come, on top of a lot of work as my course is very demanding academically.

Unfortunately, now that I log on here, I have a sense of nostalgia, a sense of a lost home; I no longer keep in touch will my online friends. I have ceased to keep up with journal entries or commenting on pictures. I some ways I have lost touch with everyone I knew here and it makes me incredibly sad.

Additionally, I see people improving so much, but the reality is that I don't have much time to draw on the internet. Or maybe I just have a massive art block -- I struggle to draw anything recently which is such a shame. I don't feel that it is worth me uploading digital artwork any more since my improvements with computer work have stalled through lack of drawing on the computer, to put it simply. I feel I used to be talented, but that now that talent is starting to fade and everyone improves but I stand still.

And so, I don't know what to do. I have a few options:

Do I leave dA and delete my account? It is no longer what it used to be and I struggle to keep up with it. The work in here is old, and out-dated and pretty useless.
Do I leave dA but keep my account open? Just so I can go back...perhaps start up any time
Do I recreate a new account and upload traditional artwork there instead which is what I do more of now?

I feel a bit lost. Anyone got any advise?

I do appologise to everyone for not being active. It's not that I have forgotten any of you...I just struggle to juggle an online and real life both at once.

Hello everyone.

Just wanted to post a big hello to everyone and to say sorry I've not had much chance to go on.

I've been pretty busy in life, having finally got a nice group of friends, a boyfriend, and a relaxed school year, and looking forward to going to University in September next year to study Veterinary Medicine at Liverpool University.

How is everyone else doing?

Best wishes
Pinkie

I hope everyone spend a great time over the Christmas holiday.

I really do apologise for my lack of presence of DA. I hope to change that soon and upload some more. :)

Best of wishes,
Pinkie

I'm going to be working for 2 weeks at a major safari zoo in the UK (Whipsnade). It's for work experience and to strengthen my CV before my University interviews for Veterinary Medicine which start in December.

I have no exams going on and have lessons for 12/week. However, the only important subject I am doing in Chemistry A2 level for 5h/week. I do a few hours of Spanish (3h/week) but that does not help me with my Uni applications. The rest are tutorials, and debating 'lessons'.

Anyway, all of my teachers and tutors are willing to help support me and catch up with work and do not envisage that taking 2 weeks off school with be detrimental to my grades in any way as I am an independent learner. I am asking for 10hours off in total of valuable lesson time. 10hours is equivalent to 2 days off sick for someone who is in education full-time (ie like I was last year).

Last year I missed 20hours of lessons in one week due to surgery, and I managed to have no problem catching up.

My head of year who I consulted today said no, I cannot have the time off. She was firm and confrontational. I don't mind her discouraging me, but I am asking for my absence to be authorised instead of bunking off like so many younger students do!! The reason was that she was afraid of legal action against her. I understand how messed up the UK law is with people suing or accusing so many others. But that did not mean she had to treat me like a 15 year old when I am legally adult (19 now). If she had said "I can't authorise this due to legal reasons and don't encourage you to take the time off but lets look at a solution to this issue together and discuss alternatives e.g. you will need to either take holiday or go unauthorised", I would be fine.

I asked to take holiday leave if they could not authorise it under "work experience" so any injury I incurred would be my responsibility not the school's. She said she needs notice for me to ask for holiday leave and said I can't do that either.

I was horrified. I am asking for 10 hours off and everyone is supporting me aside from my head of year. I've not asked for any time off for holidays in 3 years. I've done over 19 weeks worth of work experience during every single school holiday and this is the first time I have asked for leave from school. This is outside my exam period so it is not interfering with my exams. I am an asset to the school and potentially one of their most brightest pupils and they are not working with me to help me succeed.

Mum rang my head of year. She was unfriendly and ignored my mum when she asked to speak to someone else. My mum rang up school again, and they contacted my head teacher (principal for your guys in the US). She said my absence would be cleared and I could go.
