Hello! Just another life update, 'cause I felt like letting you guys know about the good things that are going on right now.
So as I previously mentioned, I'll be going to art university again, and obviously the course I'll be (re)doing is comic design. I'm currently packing my things to move out, finally. I wasn't enjoying living with my dad at all, so I am so happy to be moving out. I feel very blessed to be able to do this on my own now, without having to rely on anyone's money. Or not completely, at least. I also feel really inspired to work my ass off this time. I have a lot of talents and gifts that I didn't use to my full capacity- nowhere near it, actually, and still my teachers thought my work was good, so if I finally put some more effort into it then I am curious what the outcome will be. I've never ever put effort into anything, so I'm happy to finally break that habit.
On another note, I got a new haircut (undercuts for the win) and some new clothes. It's funny how such small things can change the way you feel about yourself completely! I feel like two times more confident. Whereas before I didn't even want to go outside because I was too embarrassed to even look at someone or to be looked at, I now start to feel more okay with showing myself to the world. Of course this isn't just because of a haircut and some new clothes, but it did give me another boost.
I've also mastered the art of book binding (kind of, at least..) and I started a YouTube channel. I don't have any videos yet, but I've got many ideas. My videos will mostly be focused on art and daily vlogs. I'm super excited about it.
Long story short, things are definitely going to look up. I kind of can't wait to make more self portraits and post them online. Looking forward to uploading more art in general!
