Look who's risen from the dead!!!!!! (It's meeeeeeee.....)

Yeah, so sorry for the random and sudden disappearance 3 months ago (or is 4 now?...5?...Oh shit it's been 5 months...) Anyway, I should give an explanation as to what happened and where I've been and what may or may not happen from here on out. 

So I initially disappeared because my computer that had all my drawing software on it completely crashed. It took about a month for it to get back up and functional again, but by that time the college semester began up again. This year has been especially hectic, I've had some serious trouble with roommates and classes and extra activities, and I lost all motivation to actually draw. The more I look back on those months, the more I think I suffered from untreated depression. As much as I love my DotW characters, I abused them in my absence and didn't have any motivation to keep up with them, so I fell out of DotW due to lack of activity. 

Fast forward to now. Most things are better, school especially. I'm getting involved in writing for journals and other academic conferences, along with competing on an incredible speech team, so that's really helped. The less time I spend at home, the better to be perfectly honest. I still don't have much free time, but as of late I've been rather restless with my art and I want to get back into it. At this point, I'm still debating whether or not I want to get put on the waitlist for DotW again. I miss the community and my characters, but my biggest fear is that I'm going to slip again. I honestly didn't do a good job of keeping my commitments the first time around. So if I do, I'm only going to keep one character for a while (probably Rholdar; even though Perdy was my first, I like Rholdar's personality the best and I never got the opportunity to interact with him and develop that type of character). But again, this is a big if and I'm not sure if I can, if I get back in at all. 

So yeah, that's where I'm at. I honestly don't know exactly where I'm going to go with DA now. I've been on here for over 5 years now, and I don't really know my "place" if that makes any sense. Art has always been a hobby of mine, and it's a hobby that's being beat out by my other activities and pleasures. So at times I feel like I've "outgrown" DA, or maybe it's outgrown me, but I do get this strong pull back to the community. I don't really know where I'm going, but I'll keep trying.
