Sorry I've been a little inactive lately- but I've been busy with... school!!
Can you believe it? I made it back! I'm going to a new, public school now, with a reputation for respect, accepting people, and a fantastic arts program. It's amazing. Everyone there is so kind and I've already made a bundle of friends who are a lot like me! I even found 2 old classmates from my other school, who are doing so much better as well. As soon as I finished my first week, I knew that it was where I belonged- I actually LIKE getting up in the morning to go to class! It's a huge improvement. My favourite class is science- I'm taking the grade 9 course (that I never got to finish), so the class is a bit rowdy and immature, but I LOVE my teacher so much! His name is Mr. Wong, and he is just... awesome. Great at teaching, really funny and nice, and he has the best activities to do. I'm so focused in class, I'm even planning on trying some science experiments at home!! I'm getting more interested in a future with biology- I wanna work at an animal sanctuary one day! Over all, I'm just really happy with that course. c:
Aside from school, I'm feeling a lot healthier too. I'm taking some new medications, and though I'm not perfectly well again, I'm doing really good. I've been going outside and exploring, going on little trips to festivals and zoos, and my muscles have come back. I remember when I was sick, I lost so much weight- 152 pounds to 130 in like, 2 weeks!! That scared me. But now with my body getting better, I'm at about 144 pounds on average. I'm still a bit low on stamina, that will probably take a long time to replenish, but everyday I'm staying awake and ready a little bit longer than before! And I'm sleeping great too, I actually have a reason to wake up for.
Everything's been great lately- I DID lose my iPod recently though, on a bus. Nothing's turned up yet, and I can't text Kate for now, but I'll make do.
All in all, I've been so much better... and I really owe so much to my friends here and on Tumblr. You guys were never mean to me, telling me I was overreacting or not trying hard enough. You all supported me, and were so patient, especially with requests and commissions I said I would do... that really means a lot to me. The fact that you were willing to stay by my side when I had no one other than my family to talk to, the fact that you understood- it's just so much greater than I can explain. So I want to say thank-you. Thank-you so, so much everyone.
Alright... enough with the sentimental talk!! Art. Art art art...
Well, work wise, I have about 3 w.i.p.s currently. One is almost done, one is not-that-close to being done yet, and one is... so far from finished it's overwhelming. But I'm not even sure if those will be published here or just on Tumblr yet anyway. I have LOTS of ideas. My head is swimming with new thoughts and plans everyday, but the problem is I'm kind of forgetting them! Guess I should write them down, huh? Heh, oopsie. c:> I also want to start experimenting with new techniques, and styles, but for that I need time and patience... two things which I'm lacking. I have a lot of school work I need to do, as well as a room to finish so I can FINALLY unpack completely (seriously it's gonna be December again and I'll still have boxes from the move). Also I like to do different things in the day, like gaming or going outside, so I'm not sure how often I can get online- not to mention somedays I don't feel like drawing at all. Either way, though, I'm going to try my best. School comes first of course, I gotta prove I can work hard to my teachers and principle so they won't kick me out!! ...hahaha.;;;
Anyway, that's about everything to say at the moment- don't be shy to talk to me too! I don't really comment much, but if you say hi or just post something on my profile, I always respond! So drop by now and then, ok? Ok...
I'll see you guys around then!!
Huggles and smooches,
