Why is it, that no matter how down and out I feel, the smell of new comics always brings me back. Visiting the X-Men, swinging with Spider-Man, exploring with the Fantastic Four, it all just gives me a breath of life that sadly, the real world seems to lack more and more.
The truth is, when I was a kid, I would always go running around and causing trouble with my friends. It was a world of fun! But now as an adult, I don't that stuff anymore. Maybe that's part of the emptiness inside of me. A part of me that brought me so much joy, is now gone. That's the curse of growing up. One that we all must deal with, I think the trick is to just find a way to keep some part of our childhood intact.
So how do we go about that? Hell if I know, but we have to try. We have to keep looking for new ways to find our youth. Find out joy. Because the truth is, happiness doesn't come from without, it comes from within. We just need to look inside ourselves, and find some sense of joy, of excitement and hold on to, no matter what the rest of the world tells us, and believe me, the rest of the world will try and take away any joy you may find. You just can't let them!
It's been a while! Life has been crazy this past year and change. Lost some friends, not death, but finally letting go of relationships that do more harm than good. Got involved in more paid work, doing shows and documentaries and jobs that I never really thought I would be involved in. It was fun, but really wasn't where my heart was. I found that I really missed making skits with my friends. Coming up with ideas, shooting them, playing with them in editing. It's a simple joy that I missed.
So, I'm going to start moving back in that direction. Me and Ashley actually just finished filming and editing a skit about the whole crazy pokemon card stuff going on, and it was a lot of. Just to be acting again, and also, honestly, not to have to answer to anyone.
If I'm being honest, it was a lot harder than it used to be. Mostly because I've been dealing with a lot of anxiety and depression lately. It's not easy to get motivated, even for things I love, like writing, filming, reading, hanging out with friends. But I'm working on it. Little steps, just taking life one day at a time as I try to find my way back to myself. It's a journey, one I hope you join me on!
