About Me







I am a college student in Pennsylvania. I am going for a degree in art education (preferably secondary), with a studio focus in metals and jewelry. I regret it. Honestly, I realized I would have preferred to take Ceramics. Other than that, I draw, do a bit of writing, make stickers, and do some duct tape crafts. I enjoy drawing, writing, crafting, listening to music (the types I like vary, so I'm not going to bother listing them, haha!), and, of course, drinking coffee. I also enjoy taking care of animals, from my own, to petsitting for friends. I also love movies, especially Dreamworks and Don Bluth movies, as they were a huge part of my childhood. I'm also in love with coffee and tea.

Roleplaying Widget




Basic Roleplaying Info:
I prefer third person paragraph format, as I sometimes like to save logs to read in the future for both entertainment, as well as to see if I have improved any. I stick mostly with modern realism, high fantasy, modern fantasy, and steampunk as far as setting goes.

Better?

Sun May 10, 2015, 8:42 PM


I can honestly say I'm actually feeling a bit better. I don't have to worry about an SJWcunt roommate. I have my pets. I have my forest. I'm still looking for a job and applied to tons of places, and hopefully will hear back soon. I'm honestly hoping for Michael's (sadly, the AC Moore at home closed and I couldn't transfer.), Home Depot (I wanna learn to build a bone cage. Especially if I can get employee discount. Also heard it's a nice place to work.), Gatorade (they sometimes hire college students for office work), or maybe even a secretary or filing gig at the American Lung Association headquarters near me. That organization gave me some of the best times of my life (I volunteer at an asthma camp I went to since I was a little kid.).

I've gotten a Tumblr Page a while back. Now and again I post shit on there. Might do art/dead thing giveaways up that way. Dunno. I'll use it effectively for something one day.

Haven't been getting as much sleep as I hoped, but I don't mind much. I've been getting woken up by a nasty visitor (or a few.). We have three active black bears near me- one that the state says is the "average" size and who looks to be about 250-ish pounds, one that's a bit bigger than that, and the problem one. Based on the size of his pawprints and comparison between him and the garbage cans he doesn't like to leave (he's not afraid of us like the others are... Because of this, we suspect he may be a relatively territorial boar. Never seen this bear with cubs.), we think he might be 550-600 pounds. We have had some large ones tranqed, tagged, and relocated near me, sooooo yeah. Game Commission can't do anything about it, though- we literally live next to a huge forest. Sadly, my plan of putting cayenne pepper on the garbage didn't help out at all, because he woke me up right by the open ground floor window this morning. :stare:

A close friend of mine's grandparents cat, Sprocket, is in need of medical help. A veterinary prescribed medicine is not helping him and they are trying to raise money to get him tested and help him further.

Please check out his Go Fund Me page  and donate if you can. 

* If you donate at least $5, I'll send you one of  the heart stickers I posted and a surprise sticker I will make based off of your gallery. To "redeem" it, on the donation page, enter your deviantART username as your first name and fromdA as your last. Please don't hide your name- I'll need to use it as proof to send you the sticker!

Stickers for donations will last from today, Saturday, May 2nd, to Sunday, May 10th.

Tomorrow is my last (and only) final. It's a 20 minute painting critique, and then I go home on Sunday. I'm not too worried about it. I've only missed one class (single day painting, so, yeah. But I did an extra still life so it's like I never missed anything.), and I've gotten all A's and one B+ on my homeworks, which seems to mean that I picked up on class material well.

I cannot wait for this school year to finally be over. There is literally no place I would rather be right now than at home with my pets, surrounded by woods, away from my roommate, and without the noises of the constant traffic (it is lighter at night, but still.) and fire engines that come so frequently because people *coughstudentscough* apparently can't figure out how to not set smoke alarms off.

While I have had a few good experiences- like going to The Mütter Museum, winning an award for my performance and work ethic at the library, and a few other smaller things, the year was pretty awful.

It was my first year without my roomie of a few years, and it felt... Wrong. Turns out, the current one (who is packing the last of her things as we speak), was a complete and total, victim complex-infected cunt. I didn't even feel welcome in my own apartment. I felt entirely alone, and really, I didn't see much of a point in going out and making new friends because, well, it's my last year here. There'd be no reason. I'd never see them again. I mean, I had decent relationships with all of my classmates and most of my coworkers, but that was the extent of it. 

I was working at least 40 hours per week between two jobs, plus being a full time student with course overload and studio hours for three classes. Needless to say, I think I only vaguely remember what this mythical thing called "sleep" is. I've been consistently overworked, exhausted, and couldn't afford to take a single day off. If it hadn't been for sudden snowstorms, I wouldn't have had a single mental health day aside from "school closing" events (Thanksgiving weekend, winter break, etc.). This resulted in a near-alarming number of anxiety attacks and breakdowns (including one particularly embarrassing day at AC Moore where I had an anxiety attack during one of the most terrifying "20% off your entire regular and sale price purchase" events we've had and my entire line had to shut down...). It wasn't fun, and even if I wanted to see a counselor, I wouldn't have had time, anyway. (Don't worry, with me completing classes a bit early due to thesis installation, it started to die down.)

I lost my spark. I like drawing and all, but... I can't really get past a little doodle or sketch (that I generally end up tossing away and not bothering to continue.). I've been working on trades and commissions, and only have one remaining commission, but that's mostly it. I've found old projects that I'd forgotten to post and have been putting them up now and again, but yeah. I had a point this semester where I would look at my assignments (thesis, painting, and screen printing) and just either cry or shut down. I opted out of exhibiting my thesis project (which I literally barely passed- I think it's my first D in a course in my entire life...) because I couldn't handle the pressure of being made to act like something that made me feel so awful was a huge accomplishment that deserved to be shown. 

Various other issues occurred. One of my rabbits passed away, a few days shy of his tenth birthday. My paternal grandmother was diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer- inoperable because the tumor is directly behind her heart (and may have gone unnoticed if she hadn't asked them to check, as she was a heavy smoker.). My parents are getting over a rocky divorce. Just. Tons of family shit on top of the school shit. Because everyone was dealing with their own problems, I couldn't really go to family about anything I was personally going through. It wouldn't have been fair to them.

My thesis advisor even said that, before I move on to applying to the School of Education, I need time off. She said she was surprised I actually made it through the semester without having a heart attack or being stressed to the point I needed hospitalization. She even told me that she could see how worn down I was and that she slowly watched the 'spark' die out because of how draining everything has been. I'm really hoping I get it back before next spring, when I'm aiming to student teach... I was so relieved to hand in everything I did so far and actually cried for a while today because I was so happy that it was all over. 

---------

Needless to say, I am now officially 100% done with studio jewelry. I never have to touch it again. I thought I loved doing it- I really did. Sadly, I realized that I was just telling myself that because I felt "stuck" with it. I had tried desperately to connect something I loved with it- which worked for a little while. I really wish I had been able to see this earlier. Then I could have gone with ceramics or scientific illustration or something.

So yeah. No more jewelry commissions. Might do some small things with the bones and claws and such that I still have, but that's about it.

---------

All I can say is- I hope that the next chapter in my life is better than this one was.
