Hello everyone! It's been a while, isn't it? 

I'll be straightforward and honest with this: I haven't been feeling well these past couple of weeks. I was looking for a job in the art department and encountered a horrible experience in that field that just made me want to give up on everything art-related. That is why I haven't been active at all (I haven't drawn for myself since months...). 

But thanks to my friends, family and boyfriend, I decided to turn the page and launch a new start, hoping it's the right decision this time. I have realized I am not meant for art, for a living at least. Because of my family situation and my dad disease, I need a stable job, where I wouldn't need to chase the art job offers... Like I have been doing since april... with all negative replies, and they were only temporary contracts anyway. I then have really been thinking about what I should do. Should I just take a formation in another field? Doing studies again? Well, the answer was made really quick and yes, I've started studying again since last week. After a bachelor and a master's degree in art, I will now study computer sciences. Though I have started a month later than the first school day, so I have a lot to catch up, meaning I will be even less active....but now, it's certain: art will only be a hobby. I don't want to kill my love for art just because of the kind of job I might have been doing if I continued in that way. 

And who knows? Maybe I'll get to do lots more art now than before. Future is so uncertain and I feel so lost but I need to hang on. Sorry for blabbering about my life, I just needed to write about it and I thought you might want to know what was going on xD 

Have a great week everyone!

Good luck in your studies. I had to make the same decision myself years ago, but there are ways to keep incorporating art into your life and perhaps even your work. I am cheering for you!

Sometimes you just need to take another path! Your first job may not be the one you see as a career, but it'll be a stepping stone of what you decide to pursue! owo/
