"Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone! All in all, you're just another brick in the wall... Wrong! Do it again!" -Another Brick by Pink Floyd
Now school's back in and so I keep getting that song stuck in my head when talking with people about bad teachers. I've been lucky in that none of my professors have been full-on awful, so that's one thing to be grateful for.
I'm semi-back after my hiatus from dA! No, I'm not dead! But while the absence wasn't triggered solely by dA, it gave me time to reflect, and I realized I don't do well placing myself on a pedestal. Too much pressure. Structure and I don't agree (which is probably why I could never go into the military). This [dA] should be what I want it to be for me, which is a drawing board of sorts -- an escape from the real world wherein I have free reign without worrying about pleasing people. Granted, I still want to please people because it's in my nature, but this is the Internet! People who will be pleased by what I have to offer will come, or not come, as they wish. I'm just gonna do my own thing and see what happens. Also, trying to please people is restricting. I would do what people want of me, not what will allow me to develop my skills or build my kingdom in the clouds. I wouldn't earn as much criticism and therefor wouldn't be able to grow from it. Does that make sense? I dunno if it does to others, but that's how I see it. So this is a warning that I'm going to do whatever the hell I want and that will probably be a bunch of unfinished projects. If I lose followers and potential followers because of that then oh well. Thank you for your attention, I really do appreciate it. It's just time for me to let my scattered mind to rule a place of its own.
I'm gonna go back to ignoring my homework now. It might be a bit before I post anything, but short bits of literature and concepts will eventually make it up at some point. Probably after I catch up on all the art I missed.
