Journal Entry: Sun Apr 8, 2012, 11:15 AM
Hey everyone!

I've been on hiatus for a while now, but I've had very good reasons; however I've felt kinda bad for doing so. For the last few months I've battled the worst state of depression of my life. It's an illness that I was diagnosed with as a child, but the last few months have been the most difficult state I've been in. I have also been diagnosed with an eating disorder, and have been receiving treatment for that. So I've had to take the last few months to focus on my health and looking after myself. It's been a real fight, but it's something I feel I'm managing to overcome. My doctor is a wonderful man that actually cares about my well-being, and I'm not just another number. I am feeling much better, and the future is looking bright.  So I've just had to take time to be selfish and look after myself.

I have not neglected art. Art is my passion; it is a part of me. I just haven't been able to focus on individual large projects.

I have discovered a new passion though! I am training to become a cake decorator. I am taking classes and have realized I have a great talent for baking, so I think this has become my thing. I really wanted to do the tattooing; however, there is not a real scene in my city, and even though it has become an acceptable form of art, it is still very difficult field for women to get into and be successful, especially since I don't really have the personality for it. It's hard to explain. I know I'd be good at it, but I don't think I'd really be able to fit in as an artist. But I'm really enjoying custom cake decorating, and can see a future in it. I've already achieved some success in it, as I've already done some catering and parties and such, and have more orders coming in. I've been taking photos of my work, so I'll be posting them here once I stop being lazy and upload them from my camera :).

Well, I just want to let everyone know I'm still alive and kicking, and I'll be back around here soon enough.

Take care, and thanks everyone for reading :)
