A heads up for anyone left who cares.  A recent event made me take a good hard look at my various open debts and student loans, as well as the money I'm currently bringing in.  I've decided to go on a strict budget in order to pay everything within 2 years time.  Finances will be very tight, and I'll be looking into various other sources of income, including donating plasma.  These next couple of months are going to be very interesting indeed, and the next couple of years will be difficult, but I believe I can get through it, and it'll be worth it to finally have everything paid off.

On the art side of things, I'm suffering from the Everything Syndrome.  For those of you who don't know, the Everything Syndrome is when you want to be accomplished in any and everything.  So much so that you spread yourself so thin over various projects/hobbies, that you end up burning yourself out and nothing gets done.  Between writing, digital painting, sketching, cell shading cartoon, realistic, cosplay, 3-D crafts, group entries/comics, animating, sculpting, and now resin, I've well exceeded my limit.  Unfortunately I don't have a lot to show for it either...a lot of small projects with the larger portion left unfinished.  To make it worse, I can't seem to let go of any of them, and I can't find one to finish first.  I've been trying to simplify my life and my projects, but I can't ever seem to get involved/interested in any of them to finish what I started months or even years earlier.  So what do I do?  Start another blasted project that doesn't get finished.

I'm also suffering from an artist's Identity Crisis.  It seems every artist has their signature medium and style.  But my stupid Everything Syndrome can't find one thing to focus on, and I enjoy them all and am good at them all.  My lack of an identity hasn't put me on the map, so to speak, and this starving artist is also suffering from art depression.  I don't know where to go from here.  Everything seems to be stemming from the Everything Syndrome; but its like I said before:  I can't find just ONE or even a few art mediums to stick with!  I feel accomplished in many of them, and I want to get better in all of them, but the more I try, the more things end up unfinished.  Now I'm at a loss of how to go about doing things.  I don't want to stop the other hobbies, as I really do enjoy doing them, but I don't know which one to make my main focus...
