It's been a solid month since I've been on this site last, and a solid six months since I last posted anything. I feel bad for essentially abandoning my account here, something I swore I'd never do when evaluating the inevitable demise of internet identities on this site a couple years ago, but in all truthfulness I have felt more detached from this community than ever.

As a general update, school life and social life are looking better than ever; my grades are getting me higher and higher up the ladder as I approach college, and I did reasonably well in the SATs. I've been spending a lot of time drawing and thinking up music as well as thinking-- I want to keep my mind from falling into the frustrated idleness as it has in past summers. I'm still a horribly unaccomplished loser, but I feel like things have been looking up. I've been spending lots of time with friends for the first time ever, and there's something really cool about that.

Due to how busy school was I haven't devoted too much time to drawing in the past six months; I've developed my style lots more and have drawn tons of sketches, but almost nothing I felt was complete enough for my DA account. You can find all the things I've posted in the past while on my Tumblr here. Hopefully the summer will bring a resurgence in the amount of finished drawings I produce. In any case, I don't feel like I connect with anyone on DA any more in any way... perhaps it's cynicism or perhaps it's the prejudice associated with growing older, but I'm kinda sick of the self-indulgent, self-important culture and petty squabbling in this place. If I have art to post here I think I will, but I don't feel like I have too many reasons to stay here otherwise.

But we'll see... things change. I've been listening to lots of music and have gotten really, really into writing music and learning music theory, and I'm starting to learn to utilize that. I've been thinking lots and lots about society and trends in culture and human nature, and hope to someday put all my dumb pseudointellectual musings to use. Postmodernism and postmodern humor are the best things ever, and Shrek is love and Shrek is life. Let's hope life continues to retain meaning and fulfillment.

Bands to check out if you're bored-- Pavement, Tame Impala, Dungen, Cake, King Crimson, Estradasphere and Text.

Books to read if you're bored-- Catch-22, White Noise, Freakonomics and the Tipping Point.

And no, I don't talk like this on purpose, it's just how I write.

Nice to hear. Have you been lurking around this site incognito all this time or did you actually leave it?

Jesus, can't you think about anything other than sex? Why don't you get a hobby or some aspirations that don't revolve around little cartoon girls? I've had a long fucking day and I'm sick of you telling me to essentially ditch the life I have to become some gross failure. If you thought about anything else, maybe I would talk to you more!

Well so much for trying to just toss jokes around... You've never really once said what was so great about your own life or really given reasons as to why you consider some things successes and some things failures -- or perhaps in your eyes even doubting colloquial definitions of success and failure makes someone a likely failure? Value systems and human attachment I think I've brought up to be things I think about but I guess you're not really the type of person to question those.

If this was how you felt you should have just spoke up some time ago... It's just in my nature to joke around rather than yell at people after "a long fucking day", that's how my friends have always sort of treated me (which is better than the stuff I've got from family), but I guess I can't really tell you to do the same. I admit, very often I want to yell at people or hit them because they're distracting me with pretty much pointless conversation and expectation, and it's just in my nature to counter with my own unproductive things and try and laugh things off.

Not in particular. Started 11th grade, lots of school, turned sixteen, lots of school. Haven't done any proper digital art in prolly close to three weeks now; I've been completely inactive here by most standards.

How 'bout you, my admirable compatriot? You're in your senior year now, right?
