Living A Full Life With Mental Health Issues

Hey guys,

So, unfortunately I never heard back from the art magazine I submitted my art to, which is ok. It happens.

There’s quite a number of things I’m working on, although this isn’t a complete workup of them:

I have submitted work to a major magazine publisher. I also have a paid opportunity with a health company. Which both would be awesome, but it’s always a waiting game with stuff like this, as usual.

I start back college this week. Something I’m extremely excited about, but extremely nervous about, too. I’m wondering how I can hold up in it with everything I’ve got going on.

*On a personal note, we are looking into buying a home. It’s a huge step. It’s a huge step, because we’ve made a 5 year plan. Which includes having a child in the next year, or two. I’ve wanted a child for a very long time. I’d say a few years now, at least. I’ve definitely found the person I want to spend my life with, and I’d like to settle down even more than I am.*

Everything is so tough, and I keep putting more on my plate. I want to pay down bill’s, I want a house, and I want a child. Of course, I want my career, too. While that isn’t over, or on hold yet, the next five years are really going to dictate what I do with my life. This next 5 year timespan is the true testament to how my life will be spent. How fast I can secure everything on this biological deadline I feel like I am on. Life is a wonderful thing. I’ve learned to love it through all the hardships and trials I’ve endured over the past 10 years, and talk about trials! I’ve had so many, I don’t think I remember them all. Due to being so sick at one point. I feel blessed, though. The amount of work I’ve put into my life, and dedicating any extra time I have to bettering and furthering my life, I am so proud of myself. I am also so thankful for those that have stuck by my side these past 5 to 10 years. Oh, I would not be here without everyone that has stuck around. For that, I feel appreciative beyond belief.

Here’s to 2020! 🥂🎉🎊
