Both my art-related Christmas streams unfortunately had to be cancelled due to serious technical issues, but I didn't want to let the year end without making something to mark the occasion.
This year has been difficult for me, to say the least. I've learned more about myself within the past 6 months than I feel I've done in the preceding decade or so. It's led to several very difficult decisions, some of which I've yet to tackle and plan to do so imminently. It's honestly rather terrifying.
On that note, it's been frustrating that I've had to keep things so close to my chest while working on myself lately. Getting regular psychotherapy has been absolutely key in helping me figure things out, but it's been a long, slow and arduous process and the secrecy over and above that is exhausting. I'm eager to get back to being as open as I like, and sharing some of the good news that I hope will be soon to follow; especially given the seemingly unending support I've gotten from all of you.
Despite all the challenges, I'm still proud of myself and want to keep fighting and striving for what I want and where I want to be. I genuinely mean it when I say that I would not be here if not for all your enthusiasm, so thank you.
I hope the start of your year is at least a little easier on you all than it will be for me, and I'll see you again in 2022 for the next chapter in this crazy saga of mine.
