Hello everyone, It's been forever!
This has probably been the most difficult year of my life, this is why.
I started out trying to balance college and work, but it didn't work out for me. I took 6 classes in college when a full time student has 4 classes, and topped it of with 40 hours of work per week. Obviously this schedule wasn't working; I had to drop a class and reduce my work hours to 32. Even with that it was still difficult balancing everything out.
Several other things that happened this year made my finances from bad to terrible, so I lived on broccoli for a while 'cause it was the only thing i could afford. I was also sleep deprived because of stress, and pulling all- nighters in order to complete my homework. I started having some health issues because of the exhaustion, and lack of proper nutrition. As if all these weren't enough, I started having issues with my apartment.
I barely make the rent every month, and my neighbors started harassing me. I have a trip to Greece coming up in a month, therefore I don't have the time to look for a new apartment (plus there is nothing available at the time).
With all that said, I never have free time. On my free time I am always either studying or doing laundry. People say that I need to find time for myself, but what they don't understand is that unless I take care of my priorities I'll only be more stressed in the long-run. I have not drawn for fun in over a year now, and I don't really understand anymore why I am going through all this. Drawing is not fun anymore; it is in the way of my chores.
I moved away from home in order to pursue my dream, but somewhere along the way I feel that I lost myself.
