Apart from a couple of scraps uploaded recently, I've been rather silent creatively on DA. I've collected into my favourites folder plenty of images from others, commented when it's been especially deserved. However, I've been more than busy.
A lot of changes have come about since January for myself, a whole new lifestyle that flourished amid copious amounts of snow. I was studying archaeology until March, which I'm pleased to say I passed with a high grade. I've renewed some old acquaintances, and I've made a few new ones. I've been nudged in the right direction and gathered the will to start drawing again, a big step for me, as it's been nearly two years since I left college, and attempted any kind of doodling. (In fact, I have been drawing these last 20mins). I finally got my hands on some 120 & 35mm film, and have been shooting a lot of it - along with a few discussions in the works with a friend or two for a project soon. I attribute these, and a number of other personal changes I shan't bore anyone with - as I'm sure I have bored a good few already - to one big change: a rather charming man, who has become an even more integral part of my life than he was previously. The general consensus is, not just from myself but also friends and family, that I've become the happier sort, and finally things are going well after being down for a long, long time. I owe this to him, a most certain positive force, and with pleasure am indulging in self-generated resolve to start doing, instead of not doing.
Regardless of this information (though being of the happier sort now, I can't help a little gush here and there), the procrastination I was tending is now becoming a checklist with dates that are being met as they come. There are goals that have been decided upon, and so, in the near future as I return to study some classical history, and search for a house to move into with the charming man, I will also be sorting through all my films to upload, some older art work also, as well as producing more new work, and putting into action some of the project ideas that are festering in my brain. I'm also contemplating the organising of work to sell through somewhere like Etsy, though am a little dubious about it, though that is most likely nerves taking hold. Selling work is a scary process.
If you read through this in its entirety, thank you for humouring me. You've more stamina than I.
