The year's over already! 2013 felt like such a long time due to so much stuff
happening, but at the same time it feels like it flew by so quickly.
Not that I'm complaining, though! I'm looking forward to seeing what the 4 will bring to the 201. (what?) Er...but why don't we take a look back at this "so much stuff" that happened, shall we?
Early this year I began to realize that I'm moving forward in my life. Taking the next step, starting the next chapter. It was really hard for me starting college at first, but this past spring is when I really took a look at it all. Art is my passion, and this is what I'm going to do to pursue it. I couldn't stay in my high school mindset, forever not being able to start new things! All it takes is a little positive outlook!
Furthermore, art was absolutely fantastic this year! I did one of those summaries of art things
, and I once again saw a clear evolution. Along with the drawing classes I took this year, I'm really starting to see more and more improvement right before my eyes. And it's such a good feeling! I'm developing a lot of new understandings about different things and it just shows
Anyways, yeah! Lots of cool stuff has happened! I made lots of new friends, accomplished some personal achievements, got to see the incredible Zelda Symphony, made a plethora of videos on YouTube, got lots of video games including a Wii U, got into Homestuck, brought up my academic standing, (deep breath)...tons of stuff happened to make me look back at 2013 fondly~
So this year has been pretty upbeat for me. There were multiple hardships to overcome, however, and when they hit, they hit pretty dang hard. But hey, I overcome these things in due time and the good outweighs the bad. It all works out.
But now we move onwards to twenty-fourteen! I have a few things that I really want to do, so keep an eye out for some new LP projects, cosplay-making, convention possibilities, more Swoobird stuff, and giving another shot at working on a certain comic
. Not to mention that my upcoming semester at college should be super-duper fun! I'm taking classes in 2D animation, comic/graphic novel design, imaging for game/film, and more figure drawing. So things are already looking to be pretty excellent! Let's hope I can execute it all that way while making the rest of the year the best it can be.
Hope you all are as excited as I am, and here's to a fabulous twenty-fourteen!~
...And before I go, I wanted to mention that I'm now on Miiverse and Twitter, both under the name Torkirby! Go follow me for little drawings and dumb words, respectively.
