Wow, I just realized it's been more than a year since I last updated my journal here. Time sure flies...
I remember having high expectations on 2012, but little did I know how it would totally turn my life upside down. Things started out pretty well, but in spring, my marriage started to crack. Then it went downhill quite fast. In August we filed for divorce and I moved to a new town and started studying. I don't feel like going into details about that in a place like this, where everyone can read it, but basically I felt like crap for most of the fall and winter.
It was really hard adapting to my new life, but thankfully I have really supportive friends that were there for me when I needed them. Slowly I got back on my feet again. I never imagined how mentally exhausting a divorce could be, even when I was the one who left him. It was very scary living on my own, being all alone after having had constant company for 11 years.
Well life apparently goes on. I've met someone new now. It's still very new and fragile, but I really like him, so I'm quite content at the moment. He lives quite far away though...
Next month I will start packing up and will be moving to yet another town, far from where I used to live before. Over 400 km away. I will move in with two of my friends and try and start a new life over there. I will finish my studies at the end of May, and will move on June 1st. I'm both anxious and excited.
I promised myself I'd at least upload one piece of art here each month, but I've already broken that promise. It's kind of sad. I don't have enough inspiration these days, and when I do have some, I don't have the time to act on it. I will upload a new pic next weekend though, as I finished it the other day, but it's a gift for a certain someone, so I won't upload it until he's recieved it.
I've decided to decorate my new room with my own art, so I'm gonna draw and paint som things that are dear to me. Like art from the Zelda games, the Mario games and perhaps from some movies I like. It will be a good way to motivate me. Hopefully. I really really feel like painting with watercolors right now, but I have most of my art stuff packed away at my mom's place. I do have my prismacolor pencils and pro markers here though, so maybe there will show up some traditional art if I get time and inspiration.
Hope you guys are doing well!
