What is This Even About?

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 11:29 AM
    Hiya -waves- I honestly don't even know that myself. So let me recap what DA was to me to start.
    I made my account on the last day of summer of my junior year into senior year of high school. I was so excited. I thought I was good; truth was I sucked. But my life was getting better not connected to DA but I was happy and energetic for the first time in a while. Despite my lack of any skill, I got lots of views and exploded in growth in my opinion. I set up things like my chat and that was always occupied when I was online.
    Well then things happened. I entered a pokemon community which loved me but due to unknown things many no longer do whereas some love me there. Hence I am not in my chat here as the site has its own chats and I moderate them. I stopped coming here more and more after well a pseudo-family I had here on DA revealed baggage some of which seems unforgivable and drove us apart. Now I only really see one of them and she means more to me than I tell her and another every once in a while mostly due to my inactivity lol whereas two of them I get angry just thinking about. 
    So DA deteriorated for me. My page views plummeted and while once that would have made me cry; frankly it does not bother me in the slightest overall. For a while now I have been viewing DA less as a community and more as an upload medium. But thinking now I miss here. I cannot say I will be here 8 hours a day as I was at my high(i really as close to that lol) but I can definitely be here more, maybe role play/talk in my chat again, etc. I honestly would like that.
Now as for now why uploads have dropped. Yes sometims its laziness/business(college full-time and work part-time) but often I draw the same if not more. Its just now I have higher standards. I hate what I draw. here I am now on draft 5 of a drawing just because each time something bothered me. Eventually I tear the drawings all up and out of frustration I give up. Draft one might have had the face poor so I focus on that but then the pose is way off so draft three remedies that but now I started too high up on the picture so I redraw it so its in the right place so draft 4 seems perfect but then a stubborn, heavy mark wont erase so onto draft five where now the leg is wrong and the hair is poor so draft six beings. And you get the idea. I used to be proud of my work but now it almost repulses me as I put so much effort into a piece and then it looks awful to me. 
    So in other words I raised my standards but cannot always deliver. I also want to branch out more; I love my OCs to death but even I can admit that a limit is not helping me. SO trying to mix back in some diversity. Some fanart, some guys, maybe even a few different styles than just my "normal" or "usual" which is a modified HOTD(High School of the Dead) style with cartoon anime elements thrown in and an (over)emphasis on the face. I would like to mix it up a bit! And be here more!
    So if you read to here thank you and just leave a comment, send me a note, etc, anything with the word "hair" thrown in so I know, k? Feel free to start a conversation with me right now as I miss so many of you and would love to meet even more! Thanks for reading and here is to better days/experiences!(smily face)

hi!!
lets see where to start....
I am a shy anime fan who likes to draw even though he isnt that great at it. That there is my fav OC Ms. Sysbit! Be on your best behavior or else!
Anyway I like to draw(but I need to improve some things) and write(which people tend to think I am better at). But honestly talking is great too! So feel free to get to know me! Or to just enjoy my stuff. Either way is fine.
Just know I aim to be different/original as variety is the spice of life.
