I'm Back, and Explanation

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 9, 2014, 8:33 AM
Well I am not sure how many people still follow me since it has been over a year since a single submission, but hello, my name is Kat and I am back on deviant art. This feels very odd for me, almost like I am in ninth grade again and just beginning to understand the makeup of this wonderful website..., well I guess there is no stopping it and it is now time to get down to explanations.
I have been on a journey, not a journey as in a world wide expedition, but more over in the mind. I believe I told some of you that I was in a car wreck last October 30th 2012. That is where things started for me, I always had only a few friends due to conditions from earlier in my life that made me very cautious. But I began to feel okay about that around ninth grade as I noticed that my friendships tended to last longer than other's. I realized when I was out of school for a while due to the wreck everything changed and for a while I was not in a healthy mindset. But I got better and I got accepted to Berry College in Rome, Georgia- I even got their Fine Arts scholarship. I graduated high school with honors. I got, not just one, but two amazing jobs at said college as a Videographer and as Scene Shop worker in the Theatre. I met some amazing people, and some not so great people that both impacted my life for the better.
You see I learned within the past few months that life should not be counted by how many times something knocks you down, but rather how much stronger you get back up. This past year I was able to see the ocean for the first time, I know this probably does not mean a lot for whoever, if any, of the people that are reading this post. But it made me realize how small my problems were compared to what I could achieve in life. So exactly one year after the crash I got on an airplane the first time and went to San Antonio Texas for CBI Convention, this only strengthened my resolution that if I want to do something most of the time I can do it, only if I try hard enough.
But one day a professor of had gave a conversation to my entire class, I cannot remember what the conversation was really about to begin with, but it ended with the fact that the college I went to was private and cost a lot of money. Most people will just look for whether or not you have a degree and not by which university gives you that degree. This stuck with me.
Other things began to come to the light with my stay at Berry, the tuition, the fact that the graphic design program might be going away, the only degrees possible for me would be Studio Art, Art Education, or Art History, and other things that one day I broke down and called my parents to tell them that I gave up. It took them taking a day off work and driving down to Berry to comfort me and convince me the semester was almost over and I can make it through and go to another college. What they said shocked me, and broke my heart because I knew that my parents loved Berry too. But this was enough for me to finish the semester, with a 3.08 GPA I might add, and got accepted to the University of West Georgia. I am right now taking online classes because I have a new goal in mind of  studying abroad for a full year at The University of Westminster in England my junior year. But that takes money so I have two possible jobs lined up, as well as three commissioned murals for two businesses and several tattoos for different people. And I have something in mind that I do not wish to share yet until I am fully committed. But here I am, I am back and here to stay. I have learned so much over the past year to not only make me a better artist but a better person. I am not quite sure what form of art I wish to go into yet, but I am minoring in both German and Spanish. And, once again, hi my name is Kat and I am eighteen years old. I am a Deviantartist- which I will stay as for the rest of my life.
