I haven’t opened my DeviantArt account in two months. College life has honestly sapped the life out of me. But I can’t lie that somewhat I’m happy with the things I’m doing right now. Since my course is architecture, I’m learning so much and enjoying these things.

But I’m wondering how the people I’ve met on DA so far are doing right now. For such a short period, it feels like such a long time has passed.
Last year I took a three month hiatus off DeviantArt so that I could focus on studying for entrance exams in various colleges I applied for. It paid off, since I did get into my dream college, and in the course I really want to take.
Fast forward to now, my first day starts next week. I'm kinda panicking.

The past two months, I've been bus getting my life in order and prepping for college. Because of the rainy weather in my country, I kept getting sick too. That's kinda why I haven't been posting much lately. And that's another thing that worries me too about college, I don't really know if I'll have as much time to draw as I used to.

Honestly, a part of me is really worried about the future. I feel it's normal to feel this way. But a part of me is looking forward to it too :3
I really do wonder why I'm writing this journal or to who I'm writing for.
A message to my future self? Maybe.

Honestly for the past weeks I've been kinda aimless at what I've been doing. Maybe this was the result of a year of academic related stress, but ever since summer vacation started the beginning of April I haven't had a true goal. And for me, that's what is most dangerous to someone who loves something they do.

Without a goal, you can't improve. You can't move forward.

So, I'll set up goals for myself for the month of May:
- Improve my anatomy
- Work on trying out other art mediums and techniques
- Write more journals 
- Have fun

So, that's it. After that, I'm setting up new things to accomplish, and then more, and more after that. 

If you read this weird journal of mine, thank you for sticking by. I hope that somehow you can take something from this, maybe some philosophical lesson about goals :3

Yup,that's me

Yesterday, I finally graduated. I thought that I wouldn't get emotional during the event, but truthfully I did. Six years of memories flooded my head. The triumphs, the hardships, the friends I've made, the enemies I wish to reconcile with, the joy, the stress. It all came crashing to me as we sang our graduation songs.

Each one of us were called on stage, given the certificate you see above, and we shook hands with our teachers who helped mold us into the people we are. They had smiles i their faces, as they showed how proud they were at what we've accomplished.

Now you may be wondering why I made a journal about my graduation on an art sharing platform. Well, it was in this place that I found my passion in art. This is my ode for the place that for the longest time was my second home.

To end it off, here's a small portion of the alma matter of the school that I will forever carry.

To distant lands we may go, 
Searching for truth and the unknown, 
To thee we pledge our loyal heart and soul 
It's been two weeks since my last upload, so I wanted to make a small update. 

Basically, in less than a month I'm about to graduate high school :3 Though, the price to pay is the amount of school work that needs to be done. Thus, I've just been busy for the past two weeks with exams and thesis stuff.

I really miss being able to put my full effort into a drawing, but for now I gotta focus on doing my best for academics. Also, thank you guys for your continued support despite my inactivity, I'm honestly grateful for that :3

I'll be back full force with new drawings hopefully soon :3 Also, if you guys have any suggestions or request for a drawing or sketch, feel free to message me or leave it in the comments. It'll be fun having new ideas and things to work with when I'm no longer busy!
DA anniv by TruiArts
I have a one week break from school, and just in time for the Halloween season (my favorite time of the year) :3
While I did say I'll be back December, I'm going to draw as much as I want during this sembreak before I go back to school (which means back to focusing on school work).
So anyways, I'm happy to be drawing again, I've missed this,
Oh, also it's my one year anniversary on DA! I never noticed that unitl I checked back in yesterday :3

See You Later! by TruiArts

First of all, thank you guys for the support, as we have reached 300 watchers on the page!

But I have a bit of a sad announcement. I won't be able to post until December. That's because within the next three months, I have to prepare for three college exam tests, researches, and a thesis. As much as I try to find the time to draw, it's really hard. And when I do, I'm already burnt out by the workload I have 😞 I've tried my best to consistently upload weekly, but over the last few weeks, it just became really difficult.

So, until I have everything in check, I'll finish all my responsibilities and get back to making new artwork :3 And just to clarify, I'll still be around DeviantArt every now and then, I'm not leaving completely.

So thank you for all the support , and see you guys later!

So school starts again next week in the Philippines, and it's going to be my last year in high school. The past two months have been amazing with the positivity and support I get from you guys, so sincerely, thank you :3

It's going to be a busy year, preparing for college exams and stuff, so I might not be able to upload as much as I used to again. Still, I'll try my best to upload atleast once a week.

Also, I've been thinking about uploading old artworks of mine as "throwbacks", would you guys be interested? :3

But again, thank you guys. It's been an amazing two months :3
There's a good chance only a few would read this, or maybe none at all. Either way, it wouldn't matter too much, since I'm basically just talking about myself.

Classes ended a couple of weeks ago, and what a school year it was. I don't mean to brag, but I did graduate with high honors. While I'm happy with that, I was miserable at the time. All I focused on was studying, I rarely drew stuff that I could put on my page. But since classes ended and summer break started, I immediately went back to making art stuff. I've felt a drive that I haven't felt in a long while.

It sounds corny, but art is really my drive. I missed this.

If you happen to be reading this and you watch my page, a part of me is grateful to you for staying with me till now. It also motivates me knowing people are interested in my stuff. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you :3
While my page has mainly been Pokemon art and stuff for some time now, I want to branch out a bit. Mainly, post stuff of my other interests :3
7 tests, including Chemistry, Calculus, Statistics, and more over the span of 3 days.
And finals next week.

I'm trying to find that silver lining in the sky.
well better late than never :3

Journal Entry numbe- should I really start a journal like this? I don't know. I'm new. If you manage to stumble on this page, welcome. I'm a someone who, despite my inexperience and how shaky my hand is, loves to draw. I love black and red, they mesh together beautifully.

Well, that was a journal thing.
