Where the Heck is Vivian?



Hey! First of all, it's been forever. I'm so sorry I haven't had anything interesting to post on ((and to be honest I still don't right now)). So I just want to update you about my life right now and tell you why I haven't been around the blogosphere much lately, and assure you I'm still here and am not leaving!

So basically college. College is a thing. I'm right now applying to schools because believe it or not I'm heading to college next fall *ahhhhh*. So I've been spending weekend time writing essays which may be why there's been a shortage of blog posts. I'm hoping to have most of my applications in by November 1st because I'm doing early decision for some schools, so you can count on seeing a lot more of me when that date rolls around. But until then my posts may be a little sparse, but I appreciate all the understanding and support you guys always have for me.

Another things that's taking up a LOT of time is that I'm working on my AP Studio Art portfolio. Since my school does our year in semesters, I have to have the entire portfolio done by January. That's like a piece a week so I've been spending a ton of time brainstorming and painting and planning all that artwork. I'm super excited to share that with all of you though, because to be honest you followers have really inspired me to continue pursuing art with all of your encouragement. I'm really happy to be continuing to make it a core part of me and my life.

And that leads us to youtube. You're probably wondering if that was just a myth. I'm praying it's not- it's super in limbo right now just because I really don't have a proper set-up, and I'm hesitant to post less-than-good-quality videos. I want to have a strong start. So I'm sort of waiting around to have my shelves in my room moved and get a proper stand and whatnot. It's still in progress, thank you for your patience. Once that's up I'll hopefully start showing AP work, which will be super exciting, along with my other normal work.

I have also been reading a lot. I've been trying to branch out and read lots of genres and types of books, and I've gotten really into graphic novels. I'll be posting my monthly book review posts to show you all what I've been reading.

As for poetry, it's still always being written. A lot of it has just been pretty personal lately. But I'm trying to overcome my fear of sharing personal poetry because let's be honest what poetry besides like humorous limericks isn't personal? So I'll try to get some more of that posted up shortly.

Besides that as always I love you guys- I'm thinking about all of you in your new school years as well and what you're up to, and I'm reading all your posts whenever they drop in my email! Thanks for sticking around even while I'm crazy busy, I'm going to post a playlist for you all after this as a thank you <3
