What am I thankful for? Well, I'm not going to say anything about my school life because I am almost failing math. Anyways, I'm going to say what I am thankful for on the wonderful thing known as the internet, although it is my paramour at most times. What am I thankful for? I am thankful for many things, but it is because of the people who cared to read this for whatever reason. Maybe it was because you are bored and needed something to read. Maybe it was because you are a fan of my work, and you know what? I cannot be thankful enough. I checked my stats today to see that I have over 9000... page views... Oh my god... why.... I literally just noticed what I was typing... and I want to hit my head off of the desk for saying it. All inconveniently placed jokes aside, I am beyond thankful for all the support, as I also now have 220 watchers.
You do not understand how much this means to me knowing that somewhere out there is somebody who is enjoying my artwork in some form. In a way I sort of am like that bouncy pink horse that so many of my watchers know. The reason is that I gain my happiness when I see that I have caused others happiness, make them feel good, give 'em a good laugh. Those things make my life so worth while, knowing that I have made somebody happy when they look at their phone, desktop, or maybe even a print if you went that far. What makes me even happier is that you don't care that my work is different, or not what is expected.
I don't listen to people when they say that I should make one thing and one thing only. I make what I please, what I think looks cool, and what stands out. I do my best to test myself, try new things, and they always end up looking different for sure from the next one over. That's one reason why I am not very 'popular' is because I am not generic, and from what I can tell, if you don't have a good foot in the door, then being generic is one of the best ways to get know. I never did get a good foot in the door, neither do I strive to be generic. But, all of you have liked, loved, and watched as I progressively got better over time. I also made many friends that I thought I would have never imagined. The laughter, the tears, and the joy I have had over the years, as I gain new friends has been the pinnacle of my life to this point, and words cannot explain how much I love every single one of my friends I have made over the years. Whether they be from Finland, The United States, or even just a hop, skip and a jump from where I live, I love you all as much as if you were friends I met at school, or real life in general. Funny thing though, you all care for me more than anybody else that I have ever known. I've watched every single one of the friends I have (Yes, you all know who you are) come together in time of need, when somebody is depressed, when somebody is in a time of grief giving moral support to help one another get by. When somebody is frustrated and cannot think of what to do; giving advice to help with a project. Even just generally being kind hearted, yet brutal joking people. You have brought me so much joy and inspiration, that I cannot thank you enough either. As much of an ass as I come off as, I do have a lighter side of myself. But take my word, I don't always show it, if that wasn't obvious enough.
Long story short, thank you. Thank's to every single one of you who has supported me along my way, and has dared, cared, and have been an inspiration to me. The feeling I have right now is beyond a euphoria. Thank you so much, all of you, I just cannot stress this enough.
Huge shout-out to ~Vexx3, who I consider a best friend, who got me on the road to where I am now, and another to ~SandwichDelta, =WMill, ~M24Designs, and *Emper0rPenguin for being some of the best, inspirtations/ friends I could ever dream of having.
Happy Twerkey Day!
