....I don't think that's how it goes, but whatever.
I miss it here. So. Much. It is driving me insane. I've been so busy with STUPID stuff, frankly, and it's to the point where I literally do not have time to draw, which is probably going to lead to a mental breakdown. This just reinforces my belief that I absolutely need art and writing for fun in my life because otherwise, I'm a basket case.
More so than usual, I mean.
My life has been stress, work, studying, stress, worrying about graduate school, stress, stupid poopy office politics, stress, and NO ART AT ALL AND I CANNOT TAKE IT ANYMORE. I AM GOING TO DROP THE FIRST CHANDELIER I COME ACROSS ON TOP OF A 19TH CENTURY PARISIAN OPERA AUDIENCE.
But I do want to apologize for being so quiet on here lately. I do check my messages on here and on Tumblr every day, but I haven't been able to respond to many of them, and I am so sorry about that. You guys are so fun to talk to--about everything, really: Phantom, art, history, literature, life in general--that I feel like something's missing when I'm not on DeviantArt. And reading your encouraging comments makes my day so much better and just makes me want to draw that much more.
I've got about a month left of this semester and an internship I'm doing, and though I will be attending classes and working during the summer, I should have waaaaaay more free time. I really want to devote it to illustrating a Phantom art book and doing FUN art things again. I so need fun right now. That Spongebob episode with the fun song was on the other day, and I just sat there staring at the television, in awe of the wisdom that a little yellow talking rectangle in a smart pants suit could impart.
Because he's right, you know. "F" is
for friends that do stuff together.
"U" is for "You and me."
And "N" is
for anywhere at any time at all.
In the deep blue sea.
