Journal Entry: Tue Apr 1, 2014, 2:19 PM
I honestly thought about doing this journal in rhyme.
Then I realized I don't have that kind of patience.

Hello everyone! Time to do a little spring cleaning by moving that old update out of the way, and making way for... this one, I guess.

Things have been eventful for me, which explains my... "meh" activity.
I haven't been inactive; I just haven't been posting much, or keeping all of you up to date.

So, let's start with the basics: school.

Yeah, school has kept me pretty, pretty, pretty busy as of late. What with the end of the third grading period, which always comes with big papers, tests, and projects. It's probably nothing compared to what college will be, but it's enough to keep me busy for now.

I'm also taking my first steps to becoming an adult.
Sort of.
To me, I think my childish attitude still makes me far from being an adult, but legally speaking, I guess I'm close.
This means I've been looking at colleges, working on getting my license, etc.
Plus ACTs, which I am taking next week.
Cool.

Annnd awards ceremonies.
And my film class.
Remember when I first started talking about starting my second year of  film production and theory? Yeah, my teacher had me start entering my films in contests.
Uh ha ha...
Call it luck, or a fluke; I know I do.
So far, I've won a gold key in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, become a finalist in a local Health Center competition (You know, the salad video from a few months ago), been placed in the top 25 in the Ohio Governor's art awards (Which requires me to write a speech... ugghh), and was accepted into a short film exhibition. Because of this, I've received a few honors from some colleges, and have been required to attend a few awards ceremonies. This has been amazing for me, albeit overwhelming, but it has kept me busy. And the film class I am in is a very high expectation course, so I am almost always busy with something for it. 

So yeah, I've been busy. My apologies.

On the bright side, since the new quarter has began, things have slowed down. Plus, my birthday is coming up! Oh, yeah! Time to count down to the eighteenth! 

I think that's all...
Alrighty, then.

Thanks for reading, if you did.
And if you did...
Congratulations

Alice



Hodgepodge Update

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 24, 2014, 11:34 AM
Hahahahahaha
So, this is going to be very personal life and health based.
If you ain't into that, that's fine. I don't expect all of you to read this, but sometimes it's good to get this sort of thing out there when you got a bunch of people asking where you've been, where their commission or gift is,  if I will ever respond to their comments/notes, or some other reason. Or, they're just genuinely concerned about me, which I greatly appreciate.

Ahem.

So, let me first talk about what's been going on lately, then we'll get into the nitty gritty of, well, other things. Like commissions.

Let me start out by saying I was in a crisis center last night.
Hahahahaha, wow what a jump. 

If you read one of my later updates, you know I have clinical depression, general anxiety disorder, and a severe social phobia. Yeah, real original, I know. I did end up getting medication for these issues, and I do see two different psychiatrists regularly. Buuuuuuuut, that of course can't help absolutely everything. It's not impossible for me to have a complete meltdown or occasional panic attacks. Yeah, it happens, and this often gets in the way of everyday activities, like school, or hobbies, like drawing. I can usually deal with it to extent, it's just that the past two days were just particularly difficult. 

I stayed home from school on Thursday, due to extreme stress, and physical symptoms from said stress. I felt like crap the whole day for the most part, and it all climaxed when I had a mental break down around six o' clock. I don't really want to go into detail about that. So, we went to the hospital at about seven-thirty, and as I mentioned before, I stayed the night there, and didn't get back home until about noon today. Due to the severity of my circumstances, prolonged hospitalization has been considered. As in, three days to a week, basically. However, since things died down by the time morning came, I was allowed to go home. Whether or not I will be taken into a hospital is yet to be determined.
Why am I telling you this? 

Well, to me it's one thing to say "yo, I have such and such mental illness, so I can't do certain things or get things done sometimes". Some people see that as a cop out, or an excuse. This is me saying that things can get pretty bad, even though I am receiving treatment, so I'm sorry if I can't get certain things submitted or make updates as much as I'd like.
Whoops.

So, what does that mean at the moment?
Well, I certainly don't update as much as I used to. I'm still working as much as I can on everything I owe people, but I get more work done on some days than others. To be honest, I really want to work on something for myself,but it's hard when you don't know what to draw, and have been in an inspiration slump for almost a month. Also, you may have noticed a few changes to my art statuses; I'm not just automatically accepting point commissions or trades like I usually do. Cash commissions, on the other hand, are open, and you can find more information about that on my page. If you want something, that is.

This would be a hiatus, but I'm not really going anywhere.

Also, I got a skype. It's the same as my username, dawg. Following-the-Rabbit. I tend to get on there a lot, since it's an easy access thing on my ipod. I can't promise I'll get back to you immediately, but feel free to drop me a line on occasion. Just leave your name/username in the contact request.

Further more, just a friendly reminder that I also have two blogs that I post to occasionally.
This one is mostly for sketches, concepts, and WIPs your-magic-white-rabbit.tumblr…
And this is for everything else owlinthelarksnest.tumblr.com/

I think that's about it. Whew!
Once again, I'm sorry for the inactivity and lack of updates. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I hope to talk to y'all soon.

About Me

Did somebody say free hats?!

Well, this is where I put something about me, right? Let's get typing.
My name is Alice, nice to meet you. I make... things. Mostly just whatever I feel like, or am told to. Not much to see here.
I'm sixteen years of age, a junior in high school, and as old as time. I'm striving to become a criminal prosecutor and/or defense attorney. Or a film director... yeah.
I'm not an artist. I'm not even an art student. I'm a hobbyist. Most everything I do is for fun, and I really enjoy it. While I do take commissions for points, I can't see myself making a career off of what I do.
As for my interests... they vary. I like classic books and films, horror-related anything, computer games, costumes/cosplay, and other geeky... things. o3o
I guess I am an okay individual, even though I am a bit of a smart ass. I'm not too talkative, but I'm open to meeting new people and new, interesting conversations, so don't hesitate if you'd like to chat. I swear too much, though. Oh, well.
I don't bite. If you have any questions or comments concerning me, my art, or anything else, feel free to note me or drop me a comment. Again, I don't normally bite.
