HI! I remembered NG was a thing today. Just started playing through some old games (mostly just MARDEK RPG) and thought I'd leave a post here as a kind of "public diary" entry. So yeah! It's, interesting, to say the least, to see how much differently teenaged-me acted online, looking back at my old posts. I thought about deleting them, especially the horrid MS Paint fanart, but looking back, it's kind of charming to see how motivated I was to create things, even when I had zero skill. Nowadays, my artwork is few and far between, and rarely shared online, albeit at a higher standard of quality. I just make art for myself instead of for others as of late, but I feel more content with my art because of it.
If you're reading this, I hope you also have something personal that you enjoy doing, not for money, nor recognition, but simply because it makes you happy to do that thing. In my experience, it makes it a lot easier to feel fulfilled in life than any amount of likes or upvotes or what-have-you.
