An Agonizing Wait.

Anyone who knows me in life, knows that I am always desperate to go somewhere. Mom's going to the bank, I tag along. Dad's going to go get milk, I'm in! A friend's going to do a mundane task, let me come too! Sometimes it gets so bad that if someone won't let me come, I nearly fall to my knees, begging and pleading "Take me with you!!"

Now that I can drive myself places, it's not quite so bad. If I need to go, I can. Ok that's a lie. Under my own power, with the ability to leave at any time, it's worse than ever.  I mean, going to the bank, or the library is fine, but it's just not enough. It's kind of why I started reading National Geographic Magazine a while back, so that I could see other places. It wasn't as good as actually seeing them, and mostly it just made me even more desperate, but it was something.

It's kind of funny. For a long time, there was this funny feeling in the pit of my stomach that popped up whenever I looked at a map, or whenever I thought about traveling. I used to think it was like dread or something, but that can't be right because I love going places. Then I realized it wasn't dread. It was longing. I longed to go places. I longed to see them, feel them, smell them, hear them, breathe them. I was desperate. I wanted so badly to go to another city, another state, another country, to see everything I possibly can. I wanted to experience everything. I really hope that maybe I will.

In June I'm  going to go to Belize for a mission trip. Just thinking about it brings that feeling back, that lustful feeling. I am so anxious to go. Waiting for my passport, for my tickets, for June to come, is agony. Once I get there, it will only be satisfied for a bit. Once I get a taste of traveling, of true international traveling, I won't be able to get enough. I will never be satisfied by simply going to a library or the mall. Even now before I have even left it isn't enough. I am homesick for places I have never been before. 

I know that to some people, that's the weirdest thing ever. 'How can you be homesick if you don't even live there? She's got to be crazy' I don't know how, I just know I am. I am so excited, it hurts. It hurts to think that I'll be leaving this country, and going to a completely different one. It's just incredible. I'm going to another country, in another continent! It's so horrible too because, every day, every hour, every minute, every second; it is getting harder and harder to wait.

So sorry!

I have not posted in forever! I do apologize for the months of me not really paying attention, and/or forgetting completely that I do in fact have a blog. I'm sure you all don't care in the least what I've been up to in the last few months, but I'm going to tell you anyway.

I've been working quite hard to up my art abilities, and I must say, my current art page needs a redo. (Can I just burn all that? Please?) I will probably post some pics of new art later, if anyone actually reads this mess that is supposed to be a blog post.

I have somehow managed to get into collage. Crazy right? I'm taking an American History class (Blech, I know, but they won't let me take the actually interesting history with out it :P)

I might (probably) be getting a table at Planet Comicon, so come check us out there, unless you're in another country or something, in which case don't bother, thats way to far for a comic convention. If you happen to live in the KC area, then do come, because it's actually a ton of fun, albeit a bit crowded.

I also got a really cool printer. I'm sure you are super excited about that. (Yay. Printers.) But It's freaking awesome and huge! I can scan my bigger art without so much hassle, AND It scans in high resolution so huzzah!

Oh, I can drive now too, I have a license-y thing. It's pretty cool. I can just pop over to the library whenever I want! I know right?? Awesome!! Also I have a Twitter, though I don't really know how to use it.

And that's what I've been up to! Enjoy you're Sunday!
