I recently made the milestone of being on Deviant Art for 5 Years! Wow, I've been a member here since way back in year 10 of high school, I did have another page before this one but I barely had anything worth keeping at the time so I just made a new accoun and it's been 5 long and eventful years.
So much has happened since I first made this new account back in 2008 (I know seems like such a long time ago huh?). My life has changed in so many ways and looking back on some of the things I uploaded and wrote here in my journal seem so stupid now, but at the time they were real and true.
I've made friends, lost some and gained new ones. Been through relationships, both the best and worst times of my life, found new skills, talents, wishes, dreams, goals and desires. Been enlightened by some of the toughest experiences and learned from my mistakes, inspired by friends and family and determined to make them proud.
My writing has come such a long way from the simple, cliche love poems to the rich story telling marvels I like to indulge in every night when I dream my way to the next morning. My drawing has also come on quite the journey, hard to believe the progress sometimes, I still have a long way to go to reach the top, but I have come quite a ways.
Anyway, I didn't intend on this becoming the rather large in depth reflection it has become so I'll end it here. I am about to upload a new poem written literally minutes ago and I'll be starting a new 2-4 piece drawing project maybe even a fifth if I can fit it into my ever busying schedule.
Until then, thank you for sticking with me these past 5 years.
