So I don't really feel like updating EVERYTHING that has happened since I last updated. It would be too much.
Instead, here's what's happening now:
I finished AmeriCorps, Friday was my last day. Today was my first weekday not going in to the office or out to a work site, so it was kinda weird. However, I don't have time to mope around because I am moving at the end of July, and I am trying to pack up everything before I go home to visit my parents for a week. I am heading out on Friday, and it's going to be great!
Now, for the random incident that inspired this journal: DA is just plain weird sometimes. I have been on here for 7 years, which is kind of crazy. My art has improved by leaps and bounds in those years, though of course I haven't been terribly good at keeping this updated. However, for some reason there is one piece of my artwork that will occasionally show up in my message center because someone has +faved it. It's one of my oldest deviations, with really poor scan quality, and get this: it was just a doodle. I was in New Mexico when I was in 11th grade, and because there were so many jackalope-themed things around, I drew one. Now, it's cute, has soulful eyes, and one of its hind legs is sticking up in a charming manner. But every time it shows up because a new person likes it, I just get kind of discouraged. Really? After more than six years, this is still the piece of art that people respond to? What the hell is wrong with people? Or for that matter, what is wrong with me?
So thanks, all 14 of you who saw my crappy jackalope sketch and clicked the "add to favorites" button. Don't bother commenting. Don't bother looking at any of the other art in my gallery, the work I've spent hours or weeks on. Just click that button, you've clearly hit upon the gem of my portfolio.
