Life as I know it is changing
In less than 48 hours I'm going to be home, moved back from college.
For multiple reasons I'm not going to be able to update for several days at least.
1. I don't have time due to my last final tomorrow and just a general desire to soak up the time left with my friends here while I still can.
2. When I draw, I listen to music, some of which tends to make me a little emotional to begin with (to help me get into the mood of a page, for instance). This couples with the heavy heart I already have from thinking about all the experiences that are coming to an end. I don't want to tempt any more "spells," so I'm kind of avoiding music for a while, if that makes any sense.
I guess by multiple I really meant two. Well, anyway. I wandered campus yesterday and today taking pictures of buildings that are likely to look different whenever I am to return to this landmass. I've consciously walked through several "lasts," such as last time eating at various dining areas, last time studying at the library, and most achingly, my last time DJing at the radio station. It took me quite a few minutes to leave that room. Turning off the equipment the last time, packing my backpack up real slowly, looking at everything for that final mental picture of a place I've spent so many hours.
I look forward to the future, but (as you might be able to tell by the nature of my comic) I am a person who sometimes gets a bit preoccupied with the past.
Although I came up with the idea for it during high school, Loud Era really started when I was a freshman in college. It's weird to look back on those humble beginnings, the mindset I had at the time, my abilities. I've grown so much in these four years and so has this comic. I look forward to what the coming years will bring (because there's a lot of years left in this comic, believe me).
Thanks again for reading, especially if you've bothered to read this sad scoop here. I hope my next news post will be less solemn, more bright.
