It's been.... A really bad year for me.
Two nervous breakdowns in one year, I had to take a hiatus from school, I switched from animation to illustration despite doing really well in my program. I just couldn't handle the stress. I'm about to turn 25 in January, and I wonder if that's been contributing to my depression. I feel like I haven't gone anywhere because I'm too hypersensitive and neurotic. I live too slow and quiet. I can't afford therapy until I go back part-time (so I don't flake out again) in Spring where they offer it as a free service.
So that all off my chest, I'm surprised I managed to have completed any pictures this year. I don't think my growth was as wild as last year but I'm relieved to still be able to draw and not deteriorate.
After my Secret Santa is posted, I'll replace December with that drawing. I just don't want to spoil it.
