Hello Internet,

I'd like to start by saying this is more for me than anyone else. If you really want to learn a little more about me then read on but, does someone's diary besides our own ever really make sense to us?

I haven't done anything with dA (or even y!gallery) in a long time. It's not that I haven't been writing or doing art. It's just that... well, I'm not really an internet person. I don't get on my computer that often and uploading my stuff online or trying to be part of any online community is a lot of work. It takes dedication and effort- two things I'm not very good at. I think at some point I just thought, "Well, it's not like anybody notices or cares if I post anything." and then I just... stopped.

That's not a very good motivation in the first place. Well, I suppose if your whole goal is to be iNTerWebz FAMOUS or whatever then maybe it is.. but, my art and writing has always been very very personal. It's really about me, what's going on in my life, and what art and feelings I have (or have made) for my friends. My real friends- the short list of people I actually know and give a damn about.

Someone once told me that I have the opposite of internet-aspergers because people on the other side of the screen aren't real to me. I can't connect to someone without voice and face and touch. It's pretty bad. If I haven't seen you in awhile you sort of cease to exist- even my family. I just go about my life working, reading, playing video games, and minding my own business and it never occurs to me that someone out there misses me or desperately wants to see me.

The point, I suppose, is that the internet to me is sort of a void. It's a giant mysterious force connecting the world and every time I venture out into it I just feel... lost.

I'm going to start posting again because I do like to think that maybe, no matter how personal, what I write or draw or collage might touch someone else. If you're that person- if you look at something I've done and it makes you feel something please let me know. I think that's a connection that matters. I don't know, maybe that's hypocritical but I'd like to believe that there are more people out there like me.

Not really. I feel like I've been stuck at 22 or 23 for awhile. I dunno, maybe I'll feel 26 when I'm 30.
