I vaguely remember feeling scared about how old I was getting when I was about 23.  At that time, I was close to graduating as a graphic design major and had admitted my failure after trying very hard to convince myself that I liked it.  I was at a loss of what to do next, a state of mind I did not and still do not deal well with.  I was entirely frustrated, and felt unprepared to join the ranks of other "grown-ups" who are in the ripe age of 20s.

Seven years later, I can only look back in amazement at how everything ended up working out for the most part.  I had so much fear and so much desire.  I carried a chip on my shoulder so large that at times I got buried in my own insecurity.  Yet the world gave me a spot, and my loved ones continuously put up with me in my worst moments.  I received more help than I ever imagined even when I hesitated to reach out.  Having finally learned that it's ok to be as flawed as I am as a person, I somehow became comfortable enough with who I am - unimaginable to my awkward teenage self, no doubt.

I did not manage to grow into a super mature and responsible adult in the past ten years, as I thought I would when I started the decade.  That's totally fine though... I now realize that not having to fully "grow up" is a luxury, one that I cherish.

It's been a very, very lucky decade for me, and I cannot wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for me and people in my life.

Good, good, because there's not much you could do about it otherwise. :o

You have a really cool gallery, but your "Beauty vs Beast" is my favorite piece by far. I'm a Metroid fan and I absolutely adore it, so really great job on it!
