So a little over two years ago I said I was leaving this account permanently. And while that is still true for the most part, I tend to check my notifications and browse the site from time to time. Earlier this morning I was, as the title says, feeling nostalgic and decided to look through my own page, my uploads, my bio, my list of old friends. I even read some old conversations. It's funny to look back on all this and see the type of person I used to be and how much my art has changed. In only a couple years I've changed drastically and kind of hate the person I was (an annoying little motherfucker with mediocre artwork trying too damn hard to be cool). Even now as I type this mini-rant I feel like I'm slipping back into that old persona. And that's the reason I don't really come here anymore. I feel like this site, the environment of it, the people I used to be friends with held me back from maturing and from strengthening my artistic abilities ironically enough. I got stuck in the same rut of Smallville and Sonic fanart that I didn't move forward with my own original work (not that fanart is a necessarily a bad thing, so long as you continue to develop your own style). And being blatantly honest, a good majority of the people here that I used to call friends all seem exactly the same as when I met them. To me, if you stay the same person after almost 4 years then either you are actively avoiding that change or your life is too goddamn cushy. So as one last post to this clusterfuck of a website I'd like to say thank god I left.
