Now that that's out the way... I hope you all had a great Christmas if you celebrate it and a fab break if you don't! I'm back home from uni for the first time in 2 and a half months and I have to say, it's been really hectic but a lot of fun.
Despite my anxiety issues which manifested themselves in the middle of summer and are still there, I'm definitely doing a lot better and I think being away from home helped a lot. That's not to say the problem isn't still there, but I'm not getting such huge adrenaline spikes anymore. It's a long road but I understand that recovery is a lengthy and often bumpy process, so here's to more progress next year! Baby steps...
Aside from that, college has been so
much fun! It's been great getting to meet loads of new people and I'm lucky to have made some amazing friends. The workload's quite tough and sure, it's a bit scary having to basically look after yourself but it's been such a great experience even if I have ended up gaining a fair bit of weight in the process and had my sleep schedule turned completely on its head! Understandably I haven't had a huge amount of time to draw but I've got some pieces for bigger projects in the works and I'm trying to get back into the habit of sketching regularly again. I joined art club and fortunately they offer life drawing every week because lord knows I need the practice.
All in all, I'm doing a fair bit better than I was 3 months ago and university is a blast. I'm slowly trying to find my drawing groove again and oh my god I CANNOT wait to see Big Hero 6 - like, for reals, I don't understand why the release date is so late in the UK?! What even?!
