2012 Sketch Dump + Wake Up Call

Life has been a bit off and on lately with comics/writing. Some days I get extremely motivated, and some days I don't feel like doing anything at all. I've been trying to get myself to write or sketch a little everyday but things usually get in the way. Still I'm finally getting wisps of inspiration to get stuff done!

I was planning on taking some classes online for Summer Semester but I ended up dropping them. Mostly because I couldn't see spending money on books I probably won't use again and thought I could learn from books instead. The classes are online and I feel that I pretty much have to teach myself when I take classes online anyways so I might as well do it free from books at the library or something. lol Not that you shouldn't take classes online, I just couldn't get myself motivated to do it, especially since the classes will be during summer.

Just read a fairly entertaining book and when I like a book I flip to the back to read about the author. Unfortunately, it turned out the author lost her battle with cancer in 2011 so the book I read was her first and last book. That made me sad because I would have loved to read more of her books. It wasn't perfect but it had potential and I loved the characters. It made me sad that I will not get to see these characters grow and flourish any more than that. The author wasn't even much older than me.

It was then I had a wake up call, seeing this made me realize that life is too short. Some of you may already have known that but for me I thought I had plenty of time. While it may be true (none of us know how long we have to live), I feel like I have not been taking full advantage of my life. There are still so many things in my life that I want to do, places to visit, and experiences to gain. I figure now is probably the prime of my life and now is the time to do the things I want. I don't want regrets when I get older. My only wish is that I have someone to experience this with but that's ok, I can do this myself too. :D

Do you guys feel the same way? Do you have a calling and have to need for someone to kick you into gear?
