It's an unimaginably long time since I made the decision to abandon, err, tastefully bow out from deviant art. I've graduated, and I work freelance now, hoping to apply to grad school at some point, and spend every couple of months a year in some sort of back-packing/couch surfing adventure, which I can normally afford. nothing fancy. But I'll be goddamned if I don't miss having a thriving, bumping, pulsing sometimes even tumorous community of artists to alternately critique, blindly praise, or rabidly attack my art. Blogs are great to direct clients too, but you don't quite get the same wide eyed, stay-up-late, pizza fuelled feedback you do from fellow perve-I mean, artists, as you do here. I'm sort of weirded out it took me so long to admit I missed it, frankly. Self realisation comes slow when you're throwing yourself constantly down the stairs of life.
It's also awkward being back. I was a really different person from the one I was the last time I was here. I'm not entirely sure I liked that version of me that much, and sometimes I'm afraid that while wandering the halls of my old account I'll bump into the old me, and won't know what to say. but enough justifications. I'm giving the old marriage a second try, because you know what baby, we never really ended it proper. Tickets to Vegas and cheap plastic engagement rings are on me! Bizarro superman say goodbye! goodbye, no-one!
