Wish I Could Draw Forever ^^

I really love drawing animals and plants, especially birds and flowers. Haha, if my parents didn't push me to go to college, that's what I would be doing right now. I would be able to sit anywhere I want with my sketchpad and pencils, and just just sketch whatever I want.

It kind of sucks that my parents, especially my mom, don't really support that. My mom would get really quiet when people would ask what I wanted to do as a kid. And really, all I ever talked about was being an artist. When I was a kid, I didn't know what I'd have to do to be an artist. But that's what I always wanted to do.

So right now, I'm in college... trying to like all these courses that I have to admit don't give me as much joy. I'm trying to really like them. I guess the reason why I do it is because my mom's told me how artists these days don't get a lot of money... like it's hard to make a living. I guess, the saddest thing is that I don't have my mom's support. Ironically, she was the one who seemed really proud of the drawings I'd show her before (I don't draw as often anymore).

But anyways, enough of the sad stuff.

I just wanted to say that drawing is such an amazing outlet! I love doing it... and even if some things don't work out, I won't give up on it! Even if it's just tiny doodles on my notebooks ^^

Same here, I know my art will never support me, but I will never stop doing it. It will always be my hobby on the side. I'm just afraid that I will never be successful or satisfied with the career I am studying for.
