(and where you can find me)
Sometimes I remember fondly when I had time to keep up with everyone here on Deviantart........ yes those were the days.
I've been busy being a college student and at times, even an adult! But not usually.
I can't say I've been doing a lot of art lately. I've been teaching myself to play guitar, which is why I don't spend as much time drawing. I've done doodles here and there and I even took an art class, which I did quite a bit of art in.
Other than those things, I've been working and studying (a lot about the Middle East), and I'll be going to Jordan soon (in 2 weeks, actually) on another study abroad! SOMETIMES LIFE JUST MOVES SO FAST MAN.
My major is officially International Politics and Middle Eastern Studies, with hopes of becoming an ambassador or even a diplomat.
Anyway, I thought I should make sure that if anyone's still around I would let you know where you can actually find me, although I have been slowly disappearing from those places too.
I'll start with my blog about my semester in Jordan: mideastadventures.blogspot.com…
I've got a tumblr (which is mainly me reblogging random interests): beam-me-up-shatner.tumblr.com/
and a music tumblr: breakingmyword.tumblr.com/
I also have a pinterest (consisting of recipes and hipster quotes): www.pinterest.com/Ismailiassas…
And, if we've talked in the past, I'd probably be willing to be facebook friends or even share my snapchat if you message me.
My future art plans? Well, as I get better at guitar I hope to start writing my own music. Maybe without the hope of going anywhere with it, but an ultimate goal of mine is to perform a song on stage somewhere. I also plan to learn how to play the Oud while in Jordan, which is similar to a lute. Here's a video:
I hope to keep drawing and painting every once in a while. If I could do it once a day, that would be awesome, but I don't even get a chance to practice guitar most days.
As I've been gone for many a month, I'm definitely wondering what everyone has been up to. Considering the fact that I had over 3,000 messages when I logged on, I don't know if I'll get a chance to catch up on everyone's journals and such, but if you comment I'd love to hear what's going on in your lives - whether it's a 10 sentence summary of your life since we last talked or something that's been bugging you lately.
