Oh, the silliness in telling DA that you're making some kind of comeback and then you don't. Haha. Oh well.
I just find myself drawing less and less. I'm so terribly busy nowadays with the rest of my life and I just don't get the same time I used to to draw. I think I should kind of back-burner the 'I'm so totally gonna start drawing again guize' thing and stick to what I'm good at, and doing a LOT.
See, originally I was just gonna deactivate this page and start a new one for my photography (how did I not ever actually post my good photo work on here? Really?), but then I decided this page has so much history with old fads, old memories, old things I used to like, old friends both real and internet, all stuff I used to care about- no matter how embarrassing my history of having been an EDGY ANGSTY HURRR SO HARDCOER GAWTH HOT TOPIK EDGE teen, oh well...that was then. This is kind of a personal time capsule. Even still, I think I'm going to go through and delete a LOT of old stuff that I just don't see as relevant anymore. This doesn't include journals...there's way too much of that shit because I was a damn talkative little shit and didn't know what the hell I was talking about 3/4 of the time anyway. EDGY ANGST MAN. EDGY.
It's time to move past who I was then and stop trying to update this DA with NEW stuff of all the stuff I USED to draw (well, I still do, but I used to, too- seewhatididthere) by trying to force myself to draw THAT content more often, and just start using this page to show where my life has taken me in the last, well, decade. So, I won't be creating a new page. I'll just use this one for new content with an old name (which hopefully I can change again soon enough to reflect a more professional edge).
So, where ELSE has my life taken me?
Weeeeell I'm uber close to graduating college with two degrees and I've crossed the line from amateur to not-so-amateur storm chaser. I now do live storm chases streaming on TVN when the occasion arises with my chase partner, Kerry, and we have a small following now of maybe 100 people or so who watch us regularly. Hey, that's how Reed Timmer got his start, right? Nah wait... I think he got his on YouTube, but whatever, you know. Lol. At least I'm doing something with my life and that something is the something I've WANTED to do for ALL of my life. It's finally becoming real! I'll say my first real chase in a real chase vehicle, with mobile radar and antannae and shit- man, it was cool. This summer has been the BEST ONE EVER for chasing in AZ, and I've learned that there's a pretty decent network of storm chasers here who are just as passionate about the weather as I always have been. I've worked my ass off for this for years, and it's paying off. Yay!
Tyler and I bought our first house. Next up: getting married. I'm so very glad we ended up coming back together after we both matured; we did some stupid shit as kids. We did some fucked up fuckery. We hurt others, and we hurt one another, but in the end we grew up and fixed all of our old problems. They're not problems anymore. We laugh about it and we've moved on. We were dumb. Haha. So, I live in a beautiful house (that we bought together!!
) and I have a wonderful soon to be husband. My friends and family are amazing and life is good, if not frustrating sometimes. My mental health is the best it's ever been; for that I am grateful.
Anyway, if I were you I wouldn't take this too seriously, see- I always say I'm coming back and I forget to. Priorities and all.
