Well, yeah... been gone for a long time. What have I been doing? Basically... LIFE
Stopped drawing altogether for the past three years to focus on my studies. Been doing pre-med after graduating from art college but after looking at the big picture... I had no chance there. Too much money on exams and a long waiting period for a "maybe" answer from a medical school IF I graduated (I was doing fine, don't get it wrong).
So, by advice from a friend, I decided to ditch that and applied for the Sherman College of Chiropractic
in Spartanburg, South Carolina and... I got accepted pretty quickly! I said goodbye to my family, had a pretty heartfelt farewell from my closest friends, quit from my job (was a gas station clerk at the time. The boss there, who is also a chemical engineer and pharmacist, did one of the recommendation letters to enter the college, great guy).
Left Puerto Rico towards South Carolina in December and I'm recently on my second quarter there. Been doing pretty well there. Love the place so far. It's a pretty intense program, but I know I can make it and feel like it'll be worth it without all the hassle and frustration that I was suffering at pre-med.
Turned 30 almost a month ago... *sigh*... another decade passed by... don't know what to say.
Been doing some minor things to at least return on drawing little by little, but more as a hobby/therapy than a career as I wanted to pursue... but life changes, goes on, gives you more challenges ahead.
Those who have been real close with me that I met here on DA since the beginning (you know who you are), I deeply apologize for my absence. Not that I will return on a daily basis... but I can check here periodically... just not as much.
Stuff that I've been seeing recently, well, Bob's Burgers
, Parks and Recreation
and more recently, STEVEN. F***ING. UNIVERSE
! Please, don't get me started, been pretty behind on that show, have only seen a few episodes so far but I fell in love with it since the pilot (most of the blame goes to Pearl... her "Cute Charm" caught me in one hit!
). It's simply amazing!
*ehem* Anyway, that's all I got for now. Hope to see ya around later and I dunno... I guess things will be different from now on.
See you later, everypony!
