Well, in a day or so I'll be off to college, starting the first steps towards reaching my dreams of becoming a game designer. For some reason I feel caught between feeling excited on going and really sad that my summer was cut so short, i didn't really feel like a did much during this break
Regardless, things are going to be a lot different for me. Honestly, I've never been a guy of many words, I usually keep to myself and just enjoy what life brings to me. I'm just going to take the time to dump some of my thoughts and feelings into this journal entry, not really caring how long or well written it is. So here I go:
Now that I'm going to college, I don't know how available I'll be on DA or whatever else I'm on. I don't have any real plans on how I'll manage everything or how to organize upcoming priorities. All I know is one of two things will likely happen: 1. I keep up with college and find a lot of time to go on DA, meeting more cool artist and spreading my name across the internet 2. I rock college, get a whole lot better at my craft, start my career as a game designer, and start a new on DA with a new name.
Those are some of the possibilities, hopefully either way I can spread my name around, share my passion with a lot of people and make a career out of drawing and expressing my creativity
. That's one of the main reasons why I joined Deviant Art in the first place. Looking back on the past 3 years, I can't really say whether or not I coming close to achieving that goal or not especially with 300+ watchers, almost 30,000 pageviews and deviations with barely 100 pageviews each (of course with a few exceptions). Despite all those stupid statistics, I'm proud
of the artist I've become! i never thought I'd at least get any recognition from DA, especially with all the really talented artist out there. I'm not saying I'm not a talented artist myself, i've come a long way since the point where all I did was make paper action figures. I will definitely get better in the years to come, I will always reach for my dreams to someday grasp it and enjoy every second of it. Again, despite statistics, I'm proud
to be an artist, can most people say the same? There's nothing I love more than drawing for other people, expressing my ideas to them. That's why I strive to become a game designer, even though I've been e-mailed by two game design groups wanting me to join there project, responded, and never heard back from them. I know someday, I'll reach my dream, and I'll love every step of the way.
Well that's my whole speech, not too long, not too short. I'm glad I got the chance to let some people know my thoughts and dreams. I hope everybody has a great year, and thanks to everyone who supported me for all these years.
Also I have a question to ask anyone whose interested, hopefully we can start a decent conversation:For anyone who has graduated college or is attending college, how was college life for you? How different was your life after starting college?
Who ever sees this journal please feel free to tell me your opinion on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it. Your responses will help me out a lot
