2 (who?)
Have you ever just stopped for a moment to just take it all in? By "all" i mean your current state in life, and how it compares to a previous state before, and what it will possibly lead to. As many of you have noticed I have been inactive on DA for quite awhile. About a little over a year or so. So what is my "state" now compared to a year ago? Concerning to say the least. Not sure why but i haven't Hanna's slightest of what I want to do with my life. I'll be turning 22 in roughly 4 months. Time is passing, friends coming and going, experiences experienced, ideas thought, and I'm not sure what i have to show for it. I see close friends, family members, acquaintances, significant others, and everyday Earl's going about their life.  I see them pursuing their goals, working to make a living, making their deadlines, and starting that mad dash towards their adult lives. But I'm nt running with them. I'm kinda just in the crowd BS-ing around. Not really sure what i want to do years from now, down the road, next month, or tomorrow. Just sitting there in the crowd watching everyone run, thinking to myself "Must be nice, wish i could join them, I'm just not that much of a runner." :shrug: Still don't really know what I'm doing or what i want to do. I act like I'm still in Jr/Sr High School, when I should be acting like I'm in college. Instead of 21 going on 22, I'm more like 21 going on 16. But what can be done? Ehhhh~

So yeah anyways like i said before trying to put more comics and sketches up on DA hoping for at least something every week. I want to start a new strip as well we'll see what comes of that. Hope that wasnt all gloom and doom for ya'll haha just a little Ehhhh~ feeling :/ hmmmm need something to cheer things up...

Thanks for the shoutout. DONT WORRY YOUR FEELINGS ARE 100 PERCENT NORMAL. I just got outta school and I'm still on campus because the cost of living is pretty cheap. I split an apartment with my boyfriend. Money's been very hard to come by for me.. MY DEGREE was 99% worthless (but the cost was 99% expensive) so I've left the disheveled entrails of a program with basically no actually useful knowledge other than the formatting dimensions for decent video production.

My CORE knowledge didn't even come from my main department! I luckily took a class outside that taught me way more..

I went into it excited to use the facilities there to make films (which is what I did, and did a lot!) so that was at least the best part.. but films don't pay the bills (yet.) All I can say is just.. do what you have to do to be happy. Don't just rot.. and NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF IT'S THE WORST THING EVER I DO IT ALL THE TIME. I've been breaking my neck trying to get my image and promo material out there and I'm still at the beginning stages-- something I SHOULD'VE had it school but just couldn't get together (even though I had a whole 'class' on it).

What am I getting on about... jusstt don't put yourself in that hole. I've got friends who are going places and knocking on doors I've only dreamed of just attempting to do... and that's on them, and it's on me for not doing it. Dont beat yourself up but don't mope around either-- if you want something.. sometimes even minimal effort is enough. At least you tried right?
thankyou for that :) i just had one of those days it's always reassuring when you know that you aren't the only one who feels the way you do

It'll all work itself out. And it will be fine.

Good to see you again, it's been awhile but never mind that, your comics are still as entertaining as ever.
thankyou :) and it has been too long glad to be back

This is me a couple months ago, except now I'm 22 and a college dropout barista who's probably TOO grown up compared to a lot of my friends. So for what its worth, I know that feel bro.

Nice to see you back on dA though. If I didn't have so much on my plate I might rejoin the comic scene here.
Thankyou and i know that feeling i just had to kinda sit down and say i'm going to start being more active on here again. I think it's worth it to sometimes. You meet great people and get to express yourself to people with common interests
