Hey guys, it's really been a while! Merry Christmas to you all, I hope your holidays are going well.
I just wanted to do this little update, in case someone might still be interested. A ton has changed since I last wrote in here. Long story short: I got sick of the art school, and switched to this natural sciences school (both high schools) that I had also applied for last spring. Such a great decision. The first few weeks there were better than the entire two months I spent in the art high school. I regret not going there right away!
But what made me want to change? Well... if I'm being honest, the art school made me grow sick of the hobby and possible career path I was pursuing, rather than motivate me. Which I know is a pity... but then again, it made me rethink what I want to achieve in a more realistic way. And what in there was so awful? Not the teachers, not the courses... on paper what the school had to offer looked nice. But it was the general atmosphere and most of the students that got on my nerves. I got along well with everyone, but I was pretty much just being polite. And the way they dressed was shocking. I'm not going to critisize them more, everyone has their preferences. It just wasn't for me.
So over all, I'm now happier (and busier) than what I've ever been! I got a ton new amazing friends in the new school, and took more advanced classes. It's such a great and motivating atmosphere, and people there are nice and tight-knit.
I used to define myself with the passion I held for drawing and animation, and now I'm focusing that interest on new things. While I still love animation, I think that if I took on that path, it would not lead me to the things I want. It's time I explored the potential I hold for other things.
I don't know how active I will continue to be here, or on other accounts I have. I might post new things from time to time, and then again I might not. Who knows, maybe I'll get really into it again sometime.
Thank you guys, for everything. I wish you all well!
