Hey there, everyone. I hope you're all well and doing your best in your lives. ((TLDR AT THE BOTTOM)) ((GET IN CONTACT WITH ME ASAP))
I'd like to convey some bad news (well, for you, anyway; for me, it's good news). I think I would like to quit deviantART for good. I think it's for the best.
I don't really do art anymore. Not necessarily that I don't have an interest in it, but more so that I don't really feel like doing it these days. I need to break out of my habit of procrastinating and concentrate on my life.
Right now, I am a university graduate with a Bachelor of Arts Honours and a major in Multimedia. However, I ended up not getting proper skills to be able to work a full-time job (because my university had budget cuts and we lost professors and courses), which made me extremely angry. So now, I have to go back to college for one year in order to get the skills that I should have gotten. So that's what I will be doing from September until April. I also will be HOPEFULLY working a part-time job in the meanwhile so as to have at least somewhat of an income and some experience on my resume.
Last, I am trying very hard to move to Japan. Although I am constantly torn between moving to Japan and remaining in Canada, I have learned that if a dream keeps coming back to you, maybe it's fate. So, I'd like to at least try to move to Japan and become a "talent" or the like. I'd also like to work in the tourism industry and promote Osaka, which has become my second home (though honestly, I don't feel at home here at all, so maybe Osaka is my only home). It's a huge step in my life, and definitely a huge change, but I HAVE lived in Japan for a year, so maybe this isn't so far-fetched after all.
LONG STORY SHORT, I am going back to college and then trying to move to Japan. Lots of things to do.
IF YOU STILL WANT TO KEEP IN CONTACT WITH ME, NOW IS THE TIME TO MESSAGE ME ASAP. I will be closing my account in roughly ONE MONTH. After that, I am deleting everything.
Thank you everyone for being with me for the past however many years. I will be here for one more month and then I am gone. Again, get in contact with me ASAP before it's too late.
