(Journal titles can't contain the "é," apparently.)
Remember how worried I was about my classes last fall? Well, I finally had the courage to check my grades sometime last week. I got one B and three A-'s. In general, I remain disappointed, of course. However, because I had calculated my grades during finals week (and I NEVER do that unless I'm desperate and lacking confidence, because I ALWAYS get good grades! Always!), I am rather content with my grades because I had calculated some dismal Cs. Cs are dismal, yes. I know some people would be happy with just "passing" but nope. Not me. Never me.
Also, don't spout at me about being happy with whatever I have and what I got because if I were just always satisfied with everything then there will be little motivation to improve myself and/or stay awesome in that way. Unhappiness is the key to happiness. Wait, what
Mass(ive) thank you to the groups and people who have recently featured my art, which really helped me gain more views, faves, and watchers. It is always humbling to know that someone out there actually cares to see the silly things I have. To make sure you folks aren't too bored, I'll reassure you here that while I am busy spending time with people before vacation is over, I will also keep busy doodling and trying new things. You probably won't see much of a change, but I really want to do some new portraits and I want to improve on that. Any suggestions, criticisms, and advice on these are very much appreciated. I love criticism because my ego is just massive and I really need that stuff.
Also, if all goes well, I leave for the UK in late January to study at University of Hertfordshire for the spring semester. I hope this will be a source of not just new perspective toward my degree but also motivations for my hobby.
Also, sorry. I'm poor, lacking free time, and mildly deprived of the generous spirit, so I had little to give you all for the holidays - aside, of course, from the sporadic posts and doodles on my Facebook page. I've pretty much been living on Facebook (this is actually for good reason - my classes last semester have groups on Facebook and we all desperately chat with each other about our assignments).
Anyway, enough of that.
How are you all doing so far in this fine 2013?
I changed "Love Always" to "Kind Regards" because I like to be rather typical and obscure - typically obscure? - and Perks of Being a Wallflower became a movie so there.)
