Interests
I have just enrolled for a drawing class at my university.  It will be the first drawing class I have ever taken, so hopefully it shows a faster improvement in my artwork than the slow progress I've made over the past 8 years.  

I have been waiting to take this class since my freshmen year, but it fills up rather fast.  I have had senior status for over a year now, but I couldn't take the class last year since I went to New Zealand.  But I finally was able to get into the class.  I am rather excited to learn new techniques, although it just means that I will get even more carried away with drawing!  I already stay up until 5am just because I cannot stand to put my drawing away.  It takes a lot for me to stop a drawing because my main focus is on my studies, so once I stop a drawing, it will not be touched for weeks, even months, at a time.  But hopefully this drawing class will make my love for drawing grow more (if that is even possible) so I can spend more time doing what I love and not forget about how happy it makes me.

Let's just hope that part of the class focuses on human subjects since I have the most fun with that!  Although I must say that I really enjoyed drawing the supernova in my latest drawing since it was such a challenge.  

Which reminds me, I have been thinking for a while how I can link my love for drawing, traveling, and health into my future career.  Lately, I have been looking into reconstructive surgery since:
1. I pay excessive attention to detail and cannot stop until I am satisfied enough with the outcome.
2. I can travel the world and help those in poor living conditions live a better life by offering them something they normally would never have the opportunity to have.  (I have learned this from my 3 medical service trips to poor rural areas in Central America, soon to make that 4 trips!)
3. At the same time, I can expose myself to different cultures.

That is where my happiness lies.  It's a long road to get there, but it'll be worth it.

That's so awesome!
I need to get some of this bristol paper, I'm using sketch paper for my actual drawings, which isn't great since it leaves the drawing looking a bit grainy.
