I have finally reached my decision. I'm signing up for the Army this upcoming June. This is something I want to do. I feel like I haven't done enough in the real world and it's time I made some sacrifices. In the first 10 weeks after I arrive to Basic Training, I will be giving up my time, my family, my friends, my relationship, and my love of art to make a better future for myself. I have already told my boyfriend at it was the most difficult conversation both of us had to go through. Despite it all, he is willing to wait for me. Since he's willing to do that, I must sacrifice what I love in exchange for it.
As for all my friends and watchers here on dA, I won't be gone forever. I will make more artwork but requests, commissions and gifts will be less frequent until I get a stable position. I will be working on a gift for all of you so you have something to remember me buy. The only people I will still keep in contact while in BT (by the ol pen and paper) is my mom, my boyfriend, and my best friend.
Just giving you guys a heads up. I love you all
