An Updateposted Aug 9th 2010, 8:40AM
All right, so let me update a little. Because this will most likely affect my art progress and such.
First, let's review the summer. There was (and still is) a lot going on in my mind. Different situations, transferring, practicing, etc. It was stressful. I did my best to calm myself a little by spending some time with my friends, which did help me keep sane. And just fyi... there was a time when I went to the doctor for some shallow breathing problems I've had for a while and I had no idea what they were--and apparently they're stress related. But we're not entirely sure, but that's what the most likely answer is. I did a lot of cosplaying with amazing friends this summer, though--which is very relaxing in a way.
Also, I will be changing living locations. The reason why I'm mentioning this is because it will definitely affect my art progress. I will be away from home by myself a week from now for the first time in my life, and it's a little (okay a lot) nerve wracking. It might take time for me to adjust. But it may turn out in me drawing a lot more to vent emotions. And I will be surrounded by a completely different environment. I was raised in a good, Christian-LDS family, so I have never really encountered any drunks, drug users or anyone of that sort. And it scares me because I will be surrounded by these people--it's like studying for a test, and reading about something in books, but then you find it's completely different when you actually encounter it. And I have no intention of ever becoming or associating with that lifestyle. Then again, things may be okay, because I'm living around people who are also in art majors... which you have to be very dedicated for to stay in, so it might be different. It's still a little frightening, though. (I'll just stay away from the certain areas of campus.)
Oh, and another reason why art progress will be on hold. The university marching band has some very intense rehearsals. Seriously, some are scheduled 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM. I haven't taken marching band for two years. I've lost all my muscle and stamina. I'm just slightly nervous.
Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to being part of a phenomenal music program that is recognized nation-wide, but situations from everywhere are just crashing down and stressing me out. I'm a little scared and already worn out from going through the summer.
I did finish a piece of art as a sort of "last hurrah" before I head out... though I find that not really anyone seems to notice my art these days. ; But it's there. It's of Len Kagamine from Vocaloid, since I got into that recently.
