Hey DA peoples! I've been so busy with college, its not even funny, am lucky to get an hour a night to myself. But thank everything under the sun for EASTER HOLIDAYS (or homework time as my lecturers are describing it :( burst my bubble why don't ye?)

Recently, I was very melancholy at the lack of free time, but I got off my arse and started using my weekends for more socialising for my sanity, and ended up having serious laughs. Laughter really is the best medicine! I've been to Dublin, and Waterford and seen some old friends from Sligo, and it. is. DEADLY!
I'm sometimes finding Fine Art very stodgy, full of big-ass words in history lectures (which normally i don't mind) but all of that is waffle, and i hear classmates constantly complaining of outdated teaching methods, which is frustrating. Sometimes, I have to wake up and say 'eyes on the prize' i.e the degree. On the plus side, time gets away from me when I'm oil painting! I love it! Its a gorgeous medium, with so many possibilities, much less flat than acrylics (which i still love).

I'll be so glad for the breather of Easter holidays, and get away from bias, pomp and malcontent opinions for a little while, to reconnect with what I love about artwork. But if I could take out a year to save money (and cling to my sanity), then conform to a fine art perspective, I can stomach more of this to my goal: an Art degree. I really hope to continue artwork I love, and be happy in producing it :) I couldn't really ask for more! Hope everyone has a great Easter!! ALL of the chocolate eggs!

I've read your absolution and I must say that I'm quite enjoying it.
There are some grammar issues and language issues that make it a little hard to read in some places though; if you'd like I can proof-read it and make edits to make it a little easier to read? It's still a really good story and I'd like to read more of it :)

Yeah okay, could you tell me what parts are hard to read? I'll try and upload more of it, but further through it needs some editing

Just some of the grammatical structure, like commas in odd places that completely change the pauses of the sentence to the point where they no longer make sense? Grammar is your best friend in writing, but you need to treat it with respect or it'll ruin your writing D:

And that's okay; as long as it takes to make it right :)

Yes indeed. I'll bear that in mind ^.^ Maybe I'll wipe them off, edit the story, and put em back up again
