With hard times, there must be changes and in these times I've always found that having something to concentrate on to get your mind away from all the crap is essential. With my book nearly finished and months away from being published, I've found that the best way to vent is to put your mind in a character and envision that character as everything you would like to be. This is how I work through my crap. Other's get help, some rely on friends and family, but you know the greatest thing about being unique? Having the choice to do whatever the fuck you want.
In September I'll be off to University to study Games Design and hopefully in five years I'll be designing some kick-arse game. Hopefully by then I'll have sorted stuff out. Until then, I can immerse myself in all forms of art, letting expression lead my creativity. Whether it be misery, laughter, life and death. Some may not show emotion on the outside, but on paper/canvas, there is no limit to feeling.
Hoping that all artists are expressing their own inner turmoil or joy,
