Small Thoughts

I wonder what would happen if I ever mentioned to a super-religious person that I'm demisexual... Would they know what that is, or would they assume it means I bang demons and attempt to exorcise me?

I take it she hasn't unblocked you yet... I wonder if she's even able to find your name with all the people she's blocked. How many do you think she has, you reckon? :lol:

I wish that I could say that I exploded onto the art scene and have been a DA member since the early days...

Sadly, I'll have to settle for saying that I hadn't the slightest clue DA even existed until late 2006.

I had - in the 90's and first few 00's - always been the meek little weirdo. I had a couple of close friends in the first few years of grade school, and a couple classes full of tormentors in several grades following. I was forced to repeat 7th grade for failing 1 class, when another student who had also failed said class was allowed to graduate into 8th and just retake the class. I had someone I thought I had successfully befriended betray and attack me(literally), and I still don't know why... I had one of my mother's friends wrongly accuse me of being a thief, and even though my parents knew I hadn't she was never called out on it or asked to apologize...

In those days, when the internet was going through some early growth spurts and AOL was *the* place to be online. drawing was more of a way for me to escape than anything I wanted to show off. No, showing off was only acceptable if you were involved with sports, or another 'normal' pastime... Art was just an escape - something no one really cared about and that would never get me anywhere in life...

Regrettable as it is, most of the drawings from back then I don't have anymore. They were crumpled up & thrown away, burned, or just left forgotten when my dad moved us to Louisiana.

New school - new home - new sense of self... I resolved with the move that I would become tougher and more outspoken, and I did. I became less afraid to tell and show others what I thought and felt; even though I was never a popular girl, people knew that I if they need feedback or an opinion I called it as I saw it. The one sketchbook I kept from before quickly filled with new art, and slowly wore out through my constant use(and sometimes abuse) as I carried it through highschool... The drawings are poor compared to my current works, but I still have it regardless - sometimes I flip through it still for the sake of nostalgia and looking for old pictures to re-draw.

On the 10th of March, 2007, I joined DeviantART. The next day, I uploaded the very best work I had at the time... a simple bookmark featuring my favorite character from Golden Sun, Garet.
 My Bookmark by The-One-True-Koneko

All I had at the time was an old digital camera, and it served me well up until I was in college and had a scanner available to use. Prior to DA, I was a member of fanfiction.net, and most of my friends from there were the reason I joined DA in the first place. Stinger, Veggie, Kavi... You guys were my inspiration, and some of the first people to show me that you don't need to shake a person's hand to know they're your friend...

To say time passed would be an understatement... Time flew, with me hanging on for dear life the whole way. Even though I never got many comments or faves, I wasn't really concerned with getting them. This was a place where I could place and preserve my work. I eventually figured out about the chat section, and role-playing, and all of the other wonderful things DA had. My art improved, as did my confidence and appreciation for the beauty I could put onto paper... Home was still a pain, because art *still* was never going to get me anywhere in everyone's mind but mine. I knew what I now loved to do - create. I could weave the threads of my imagination into beautiful stories of different worlds and the beings that inhabited them. No amount of belittling or arguing would sway me from pursuing what I truly loved.

I continued to improve even more rapidly after moving to Florida in 2012. No longer suppressed by the mentalities of my caretakers, I allowed myself to flourish wholly. My sharp wit, previously wasted in arguments with my stepmother, was put to better use in exploring the new locale and meeting the people in it. My enjoyment of fanfiction writing was rekindled, and my drawing styles were refined even further. I turned my sights to original work once more, beginning to work on ideas for would-be novels...

And now in 2014, exactly seven years and five months later... I'm still here, still improving, and still aiming for even better. I've moved to Denver, CO... and out here I've finally and truly come into my own. I am nothing I ever dreamed of becoming at the start of my journey, and I no doubt have fallen far short of whatever plans or expectations my parents had for me... Yet oddly enough, I'm happy about it. I no longer march to the tune of 'you need to do it this way', or 'drawing is just a hobby, you'll never really get anywhere with it', or 'you don't know what's best for you; we do'... In fact, the tunes are all so distant now I can barely hear them... and one day I know that I won't hear them anymore.

For once, oddly enough, I'm not scared of losing touch with my 'guidance'...

I am... for once in my life... ME.

Yes, and being involved in the DA community helped me get there...
