This makes me so sad! Just looking at it made me sad, and then reading about you having to move makes me wanna cry!! I am sorry, darling <3 I have moved 17 times in my life (for my parents work), but mostly just a few hours away. It is one of the worst things in the world to have to move away. It hurts just reading it. But is the weather all you're concerned about?? lol
oh Gods well, I can't stand the heat...apparently I might be alergic to sun and I don't wanna leae the forests behind! I love these pagan lands! and slaughter fests! and the metalheads! and the dude from my neighbourhood hat looks like a black-haired version of Hakon! >.< I haev a lot of reasons...but the main is: I don't wanna go ANYWHERE with my parents..I just wanna move out...and my family is all weird..lately they started talking how with art you don't earn any money and that it would be more clever if I'd get a gob as a ˝rofessional Escort˝ (my aunt's words) well, it might not get any money now, but I meet awesome musitians who I design tattoos for! and get free music! and..and I don't know...I'd rather go and live in the forest with those weird-ass satanist than spend more time with my own kind...>.>
Ah, it's a parents job to worry. Following your art is way more rewarding than obsessing over a career. I think having some free time and spending it the way you want is most important. But parents want to see their kid in a steady career with more money than they made themselves. When you have kids, you want to give them everything and want them to be even more successful when they go out on their own so you don't have to worry about them. Right now America's economy is so messed up that everyone is losing their jobs, and my and Neil's parents are freaking out because we don't have steady careers (we work in my family's business). What is a steady career, anyway, when everyone is getting fired indiscriminately and no one is hiring? Nothing to do except be responsible with the money you do have and try and make time for what makes you happy.
Didn't mean to rant!! These are just things I wish someone had said to me before I moved out and I hope I don't forget as I get older! As long as you can carry your own weight (does that saying translate?), art is nothing to be ashamed of. And if you can make a career of it, all the better! Unless your parents are total assholes, they're going to be proud of you and love you just the same <3 Uh.... unless you go live in the forest with weird-ass satanists xDDD
yeahh, I understand what you're saying...the crisis is everywhere around the world, even here..the economy sucks and the people suffer... but I hope that everything stays fine for Neil and you
well, my closer family cares..my mother is doing her best to help me around and such but the other relatives are ignorand assholes which showed when my little cousin smashed some of my sculptures and her mother was behaving like she didn't do any damage, she even gave her a cookie T_T
ahh, this world is going to hell, and noone gives a damn...
