Thank you to the kind Jon Woodward for the scan.
I'm still in San Francisco. The initial plan was to return to Malaysia in August, but I changed my mind a day before my flight. I really like it here! I'll be going back to my country in 20 days, but I'm thinking of returning for MFA in Illustration at the Academy of Art. There are so many factors to consider though. It'd be awesome if I can eventually lead a life here in the future... but I will miss my family, and I know that they'll be reluctant to let go of their daughter too. There's also the expenses to think about. But I can see myself being a lot happier here. I feel like I belong already. Where I come from, artists are generally disrespected and misunderstood. Try telling a Malaysian that you're an artist, and watch them fumble for polite words to say. They think of artists as people who are less intelligent and are only good with pictures. And the art industry in Malaysia? Pretty much non-existent.
So how's everyone doing?
Oh, and thank you to !kamizuki for the feature in your journal! I've said this many times in the past, but let me say it again. I LOVE YOU AND MY SOUL BELONGS TO YOU. :3333
