Hey, everyone! How are you all doing? Hope you're enjoying your summer vacation!
I am nearing the end of my year in Japan, and with that, I have grown to discover more about myself. Unfortunately, with that come both good and bad things, so let's just get this over with. TL;DR AT THE BOTTOM.
I think I am going to leave deviantART permanently. I joined it a long time ago as a way to explore my art skills (or lack thereof, ha ha) and connect with others. However, I now realize that art in general has never really been a major part of my life. I mean, I enjoy photography, and doodling every once in a while, but who am I kidding? Most people here have been doing it for years. I don't even really try to half the extent everyone else does. I am not an artist; I really am not. I really don't have any purpose of being on deviantART anymore, so I want to just move on and try to concentrate on other things. I will continue doing photography and doodles and whatnot every once in a while, but I will not pursue it as an artist (at least in the near future). Maybe someday, if a miracle happens, I will consider returning. Right now, though, I really have no reason to be here. There is nothing for me to do. I don't make art; I don't view art.
I know some people might disagree with me, but honestly, I am sure some of you expected this to happen eventually, sooner or later. I just never really saw myself as an artist, and I still don't. Maybe all of that will change someday. Until then, I need to concentrate on graduating, getting a real job (sorry, but I have no other way of putting it), and just settling down for a while. I don't even know what I want to do with my life, so that is going to be my number one priority. I need to figure out ASAP what I am going to do for the next 40 years before it's too late. Once I figure that out (if ever), I'll start giving focus to the smaller things.
TL;DR I'll most likely close my account within a week or two, so if you want to keep in touch, I suggest sending me a message ASAP with some sort of contact details - FB, LINE, KakaoTalk, email, whatever. Otherwise, just wait for the day I may return and make way for my non-existent talent.
