This Boy's In Love  
Listening to The Presets this morning and having a lot of thoughts, ideas that have at least the promise of the ability to help me move forward in life.

The internet is a really bizarre thing, internet popularity even moreso. I love being able to see people from so many different walks of life and their interpretations of things, I like digging inside people's heads and abilities and gathering up to myself whatever I find useful. When friendships get forged and then I'm suddenly bored with a particular website, or the internet in general, or I'm simply busy - whatever happens that keeps me offline for extended periods of time, I realise that probably makes me some sort of bad internet friend.

On the other hand, the internet is just to supplement real life, not replace it, and I'm trying to convince myself it's okay to shuffle through and past different facets of this place as suit me.

Going through someone's tumblr and the books I'm reading right now/were gifted for my birthday have made me want to draw, ahh. There's a lovely feeling. I've lost most of the talent I used to have for it, having spent so much time just writing and typing. The last real undertaking I did was an acrylic painting of Ganesha, which admittedly went well but I count as more of a fluke. xD

That's another thing! Real mediums are so much more engaging to work with on occasion, even if my tablet is very very handy, especially for things like sketching out characters for nonsense fandom things.~ But it's hard to transfer in-person paintings and sketches reliably online to share, something which makes the creative process a lot more engaging for me. I might have to start actually using my tumblr for my art if I want to share it - now there's a weird thought. So far it's been almost nothing but endless reblogs, it'll feel weird to have original content there. xD But I much prefer it to deviantArt at this point, so...
