Served with a Side of Bitter Regrets
As the title says, I'm going on a hiatus, not in art, but in cosplay. Since next month, I will start living in a dorm conveniently located near my school, I won't have the time or money to work on cosplaying. Especially the money. My allowance is very limited for food alone. I'll have to try stretching a limited amount of money (I won't say how much, but it's very
little) for food and the materials I will need for school as well as miscellaneous expenses for a month. With all that in mind, I just can't afford to blow my precious money on the hobby. A wig alone would cost me almost half of my monthly allowance. MY REGRET CORNER: READ AT YOUR OWN WILL
(I just have to get it off my chest, sorry.)
I honestly very much regret that I didn't try for a scholarship at this other school that I applied for simply because I was too "inconfident" about getting a scholarship. I guess it stemmed from some kind of depression I had during my last two years in high school due to academics. I was so afraid that if I applied to that school without a scholarship that I would have even more expenses to pay (considering that the school is known for being very expensive). However, I realized all too late that if I tried and ended up getting a scholarship, I would have very well helped with my family's monetary problem. It's true what they say: Nothing ventured, nothing gained.Pssh
--okay, enough of the sad crap.
I want to draw more, but I need more inspiration. You know how some times you have a hobby that you love and are passionate about, but then, for some odd reason, you find that you aren't able to do it anymore? Kind of like what happened to Kiki and Ursula in Kiki's Delivery Service. I'm not quite sure why, but I seem to have a difficult time trying to come up with something new, which is why I didn't submit anything in the past week. I hope I can come up with something this week. Maybe another Studio Ghibli work. Maybe even a Cartoon Network one too.
In any case, I have to go now, so this will be all for now.
