LIFE UPDATE TIME!
HEY EVERYONE! How are you guys?..............GREAT! How am I? Thank you for asking! I've been doing well!
I started taking Sketch 201 at UCB last week. I had a lot of trouble getting into the writing spirit for my first class and couldn't think of an idea that would work for that first day. I decided to finish a sketch I started at UCB almost 2 years ago and it turned out pretty funny. I got a lot of positive feedback and helpful hints for touching it up a bit. I forgot how much I loved writing. It's so fun to put something down on paper. I felt so accomplished actually doing something with that sketch since it had been sitting for a while.
A couple days ago I noticed how much I've been changing over the past couple years. On the left was almost a year ago and on the right was just last week. I've become a lot more confident and comfortable in my own skin over the last year and a half and it's been really freeing and comforting. It just made me realize how much I've changed since high school.

I put this photoset on Tumblr recently to show how different I look now, even though I still kind of look the same. Back then I was always nervous and uncomfortable and wore clothes that didn't always work because I was too afraid to try anything flattering. I was afraid of talking to people and being myself. A couple years ago I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't embarrass easily like back then and I've kept that promise for the most part. I am a lot more open now that I'm not afraid of what people think of me.
In fun news that has nothing to do with anything I went out for drinks last night with Christian and his sister/my bestie Sarah to celebrate Christian's new full time job!
I am incredibly proud of Christian. He's making such strides in his life which can be difficult and scary but he deserves to move forward more than anyone I know. Going out with him and Sarah was just really fun and I love hanging out with them. They're so different but you can still tell they're related with their facial expressions and similar mannerisms. I love them both so much.
So yeah, not too much is going on with me but enough that I could dedicate a post about it. Thank you for getting this far!
