No I haven't died lol I've just been real busy. Lots have happened so far this year.
I went through a rough spot in late March-early May. I needed help with my anxiety and so, long story short, I had to go to intensive therapy for awhile. I am better and my anxiety has gotten better and it's helped open up new doors in my life. Like finally getting a job and starting on drawing again. Both of those would cause me major anxiety because of my fear of failure. Those thoughts of "Oh, what if you screw up?" Or "Oh, that doesn't look right...you suck!" And whatnot would run through my mind until I lost the nerve to even try. The therapy has helped me by being able to overcome those thoughts and move on.
Yes, I got a job! I start on Thursday at a tea shop called Teavana. They've got really good tea there, if I do say so myself since I'm more of a coffee person hahaha the staff there are great and I look forward to starting
Yes, you heard me right, I'm going into drawing again. It was more of a side thing and I didn't see into it as much as I did writing. Things have changed now and I wish to start it up again. I'd like to be able to draw my own original characters and maybe my own world's and creatures, etc. I won't be posting much of my stuff yet until I deem it worthy enough to post--that and I'll be busy with the job too.
I still won't be writing fan fics though. What I have posted here is it. There might be times when I lost an original piece of work but chances of that are slim. So sorry to say that, but I just don't have the writing drive like I once did.
I can't think of much else at the moment other than anxiety is no easy thing to overcome. BUT just know that there are ways out there to help you deal with it and things will get better If there's something you want to do, do it! Don't let your mind hold you back! Push forward and all things are possible
