Ah yes journal time again, fun fun fun.
Anyway, it’s the Christmas holidays and guess who finally got a break after 3 hellish months of responsibility and intense studying in London?
I realised that I technically hadn’t given a proper explanation for this in that phan drawing I did 3 months ago, so here it is: I moved to the UK on the 12th of September as an international student, which would require me to live away from my parents and assume all responsibilities after 17 years of being too socially anxious to even order pizza, much less do adult things and be independent everyday. And I do understand that everybody goes through this at one point but holy shit you do not know how different Britain and Iran are, and how fucking terrifying it is to realise that everyone who truly cares about you lives approximately 4000 kilometres away and if you drop dead right now without any sort of identification, it will probably take a week before your family gets informed of your unfortunate death.
But to be honest, it’s not as bad as I make it sound to be. London’s a really awesome place to live, everyone’s really helpful (at least in my vicinity) and as huge as London is, I don’t think I’ll get lost as long as I have google maps. Also I got to see Fall Out Boy live, and as calm as I may have written this, I’m never gonna be calm about that so no matter how shit London may get, that one concert is gonna make it all worthwhile.
Which is good because I’ve been really busy these past few months, and it’s just gonna go downhill from now on which means less and less free time to do fun stuff that keep me from having a mental breakdown. I’m just saying all this to let you know that I won’t be able to frequently upload coloured drawings that I’m proud of, but I really hope I won’t end up abandoning this account after a while. But hey, I’m free until the 3rd of January and I already have 3 ideas to draw at the moment so you’ll probably see quite here a few before I have to go back to school.
Also I finally bought a drawing tablet! I’m so ridiculously horrendous at it but at least now I can look forward to hours of trial and error until I finally become mediocre at it and even if I never get better, hopefully it will help make the process of colouring my pencil drawings less time-consuming.
Also the internet here isn’t censored like Iran’s, so it means that I now have a tumblr account! It’s basically just some of the art I’ve uploaded here and some that I haven’t, along with some haikyuu posts so feel free to check it out if you want to, I put the url in the deviantID website-thingy… I will probably upload a lot of sketches on that one so be warned.
And once again my journals utterly lack coherence and I have no idea how to write conclusions so…
Oh wait does that mean I have to change the location option from "Iran" to "United Kingdom"? For some reason that seems like complete betrayal...
