I've been able to identify one of the key reasons I didn't feel good these past few days. I rushed into a new semester out of self-pressure, when I initially had planned to take a semester off to get my bearings back. I since have cancelled my semester, and feel absolutely relieved. There were other clouds obscuring my sky, but most of those issues have been dealt with as well. As such, I'm doing much better now.
There are a few new things going on with me. First and foremost, I am contemplating making a role-playing game with my Glenmetropolis/Frozen Conflicts storyline. If time allows it, I'll even go as far as making two versions of the game, à la Pokémon. But for the time being, getting the right tools and focusing on one game are my priorities.
Second of all, I'm drawing again! It had been a while, but I intend to keep producing art in 2016. There might be bigger gaps between pieces, but then again, there are a lot of outside factors to take into account. If all goes well, I'll still try to make a comic, but at the moment the chances of that happening are rather slim.
Finally, something that doesn't concern dA at all - I'm resolute in my quest to become a better guitarist. I've been playing bass for 10 years now, and I feel like I want to achieve just as much with other instruments. I'll start with guitar and make my way into keyboards and drums, with which I also have some experience. At this rate, I should be able to release my own self-recorded, self-produced album by the year 2034!!
Sorry if I worried any of you with my previous journal entry. I assure you, things are going fine now.
