I fear I've been letting this thing go to waste again. My artistic side has begun nudging me for the first time in a long time and I feel I've gotten the drive to finally pay it heed and produce some work. I still have the problem of inspiration, but I know I want to create something so I'm looking out for it again. It's invigorating, really, to have that feeling back, all without the depression that drove the majority of my earliest art. Perhaps it's the change of locale getting to me, or perhaps I'm just getting better being myself.
I'm still going to school for my comp sci degree as well, though I often wonder if I was making the right choice by choosing that as my major. Perhaps at some point, after finishing this degree, I can use it to support myself while I go back for a degree in the arts. You wouldn't believe the jealousy I've experience regarding my two closest friends going to the Art Institute in Austin. They are pursuing a path I wish I had been gutsy enough to take.
Of course, speaking of them I do miss them dearly. Relationally they are by and large my two closest friend though geographically we've never been further apart. I've never been more than a couple hours drive from seeing one of them and now even a couple hours plane trip wouldn't be able to cover the distance. I suppose it was a result of my own actions though, I felt the need to move up here and since I've gotten to Seattle things have started to move forward in a way I just wasn't capable of managing in Texas. I don't regret my decision to move, in fact I still berate myself for having waited so long, but I do miss my friends from back home and wish they could be here with me. I suppose in due time I'll have the funds together to visit them.
