So I suppose this has been a long time coming. What with massive monetary problems, and my own foolishness and idiocy, I've been slowed to an almost halt on any work, not that there was much to begin with. In the past two weeks, with me getting evicted from my apartment, and now living in a shelter, I've had some time to think to myself, and wonder what I should be doing. I suppose the most relevant item should come first.
I'mma just leave DA. I've had a ton of fun guys, and I enjoyed every second of it, but the comradery and friends I've used to have on here has moved on. I sort of languished on it for a while, but I have to put the facts out there, and the facts are that over the last seven years, people have grown up. I've loved and lost, been betrayed and even done a bit of betraying myself, but I have no regrets. The only thing I wish is that I could have more time.
There are other reasons why I'm leaving. First off, dunno if any of you have noticed, but 's account was banned a week or so back, including all alternate accounts. I've been an advocate for DA's continued existence, but no longer. There are many great artists out there, and T is one of them. I've stood next to him proudly now for as long as he's been on this site, calling him one of my best friends. And the fact that they banned him on some preposterous claim without searching further into it is not only a betrayal against him, but also a betrayal against us all. DA you have lost a customer here.
There is one more reason too. Because of recent events, I've had to turn my eyes inward on myself and figure out what is wrong with me, and why my life can't straighten itself out. The answer is simple; I'm a tough person to deal with. I'm stubborn and prideful, and argumentative. And when I'm passionate or angry, I'm just downright intimidating. All of this without meaning to mind you. And as such, I'm going through a "Corporate Rebranding" of myself, remaking myself into a better person. The results have already started to show, as since moving into this shelter, I've gotten a job, and plan to move back out in the next 2 weeks sometime. It will continue on, with mostly major changes, although some not necessary, until I reach my birthday next year. It will not be easy, but in the end of this passage of character building, I'll be a better person, physically, mentally, and spiritually. For those who are relgious, I could use your prayers, and for those who aren't, please keep me in your thoughts.
My your wings stay strong, and may the winds stay at your back,
PS, for those who are interested, you CAN find me on Tumblr. Just because I'm leaving DA doesn't mean I won't do anymore art. insane-randomness.tumblr.com/
