Obviously I'm inactive here, and have been for a long time, and despite previous journal entries or uploads perhaps implying I'll be more active, I don't think so. I'm not an artist, and that's totally cool: It's meant for other people. Today, I was going to deactivate this account. I guess I was kind of ashamed to have art like this connected to me, but I still wanted to hang onto things just in case, so I started going through my gallery and saving every picture.
Frankly, it's amazing the crap that I uploaded when I was younger.
But...the more I looked through, reading a couple comments and descriptions, the more I became okay with it all. Yeah, there are some embarrassing things, some totally awfully drawn things, some things that I've never been proud of and still am not proud of...but it's my past. It was silly. It was fun. I have a lot of good memories from this place, and while I haven't really stayed in contact with everyone--with hardly anyone--some people still cross my mind from time to time. This was definitely a phase in my life, and one that changed my life for sure. I grew a lot here, I learned a lot here, and while it may sound cheesy, I loved a lot here.
Over the years, I may change--Ris Grestar may change--but this isn't a bad thing: This is life. So let's keep living it.
