Here's a little story about me , read if you like warning! it will be long. However, I appreciate the time you took to look into my story.
SO HERE IT GOS
For the last 2 year I have been really inactive here... I use to post often and take commissions however 2 years ago was about the time i was looking into changing my lifestyle from community college learning to University higher education. However, as much as I love doing art and bringing life to people's fantasy thoughts I did not want to go for a 4 year degree in art/media design. Instead i found that i enjoy wildlife and learning about ecology, I was set and getting that biology degree title. Following that i began searching for schools and i thought i wanted to go to University of Montana, I attend University of Montana for a year during 2016 and was put into a dorm room where it tested my privacy and space. This is where i began losing time to work on art and keep people updated on DA, this made me loose my viewers. For the last half of 2016 I stayed in my own apartment but i needed to go to work and school to be able to pay for food and rent. By the Holiday time of 2016 i deiced it was time for me to return to my home state , i missed the rain and my familyy. I couldn't bare it any longer i felt lost in Montana despite its natural beauty. My activity boosted up for about a month reason being that by the first month of 2017 year I was back home and transferring to a new University. I deiced to settle with Oregon State University this school had a 4 year degree that was really similar to the one i was going for in Montana ( Wildlife Biology ). By spring of 2017 I moved closer to the university, i moved out and away from my parents house and into an apartment with my significant other (SO). This made it easier so that i could attend more classes. My activity began to drop even more because summer months i was usually busy spending the days with my SO because he works so much. Now that I moved 1 hour from my parents some of my days off i spend driving up there and visiting them and my dog, which usually uses up my free time for that day. By Mid summer of 2017 I began to fall into a chronic pelvic pain for a month which made it hard for me to get up and move without having pain. Shortly after this my ultrasound came back and my Dr. told me i needed emergency surgery to remove a cyst(10cm) and tumor(5cm) that were both attached to my left ovary. Unfortunately the damage was beyond repair and i lost the whole left side of my reproductive system. I now only have 1 ovary and 1 fallopian tube on my right. My surgery was very nerve wracking for me, It took me about 3 weeks to heal properly from it and it was hard for me to sit for long periods of time to draw without getting pain. Fast forward to the end of summer, school started again and my SO and I had to move again. We moved even father south ( but closer to my school) it would take about 2 hours to go visit my parents on days off that i had. My activity on here dropped again. By Holiday time of 2017 my SO and I moved up north again around Thanksgiving time (US) we now live comfortably in a cute small place. As the new year hit 2018 I started school again after holiday break and driving 1 hour to go to school was time consuming and hard on my learning process, by the end of the school term i failed one of my classes. At the end of the term around March 2018 i deiced to take the next term off to get my life together. In April my SO and I bought tickets to go to Hawaii together in June 2018. Like most vacations they dont pay for themselves so I needed a good paying job that would giving me multiple days of work. I began job searching in things related to my degree . As of today I now work at an animal pet hospital where Im busy working for 35-40 hours a week. Its hard for me to get free time with this job I dont know how im going to do both this summer when i go back to school. My work days are usually 7am to 7pm which only leaves me the evening to shower and eat. My SO and I only get to have dinner together during the week and we rarely have a full day off together. Usually when my SO and I have days off together we spend them with each other which also takes my drawing free time away. Ive been going 1-2 weeks without touching my computer because my days off are usually separate and im playing " catch up " with chores like laundry and dishes. On top of everything this year ive been fighting on what to do with my dog Sitka, i may/ been looking into having her sent her off to a sanctuary where she can be free and have the land/ yard that she deserves. Fast forward to today, i finally have more then 1 days off back - to - back and I now have time to doodle and draw. Including checking my DA notifications. After seeing everything i missed id like to inform anyone who wishes to contact me to please go to my Instagram if you need to get a hold of me. I only check DA maybe once every 3 - 4 days now. This is my story , it makes me sad because i enjoy art so much, i really wanted to share with you my story of " Tales of Terra" a comic I wanted to bring to life. However, life has been to busy I now only have time to doodle and work on personal projects or requests that really give me inspiration. I NOT giving up doing artwork or practicing artwork im but saying, i dont have as much time as i wish i did...sadly.
Thank for reading.
