I think It's high time most of you know a bit more about me. I'm not only an aspiring artist/comic book creator but I'm also An African American female who has Asperger Syndrome (A form of autism or as it's mostly known as "under the spectrum of the Autism umbrella").I am mostly laid back and try to be easy going but over the years of deal with the harassment and dismissive,and constant sarcastic behavior of others around me and the bullying and embarrassment they inflicted on to me,has left me moderately bitter and misanthropic. I don't trust others easy and my relationship with my relatives(A.K.A. my mother) is rather volatile. The only reason I'm writing is I think it's high time I get to say what I want and to express myself in a way I can offline. Besides having Asperger syndrome,I have possible O.C.D tendencies,depression,and trying not only to get over my sleep disorders but as well as getting over some self injury.
I received my G.E.D in August of 2005 and wanted to go to art school but since the stress and trauma of special Ed and busting my hump to earn a G.E.D left me with something know as "Interrupted sleep syndrome" and that's been one of the major things holding me from going to art school. I want to find a part time Job so I can earn some money of my own and find my own apartment. I live with my mother but,quite frankly I can do without her a her mood swings and her constant rhetorical question about me and my "always bumping heads with others" and then pretending that she never asked these questions and wonders why I'm "always angry" as she constantly puts it. (She was also had a big hand in I'm like this but when I try to talk about it she acts like it's the first time she's herd of this (she hasn't ) or gets very melodramatic and starts ranting and yelling and making me out to be her personal shrink.
I find art as an escape from most of my troubles or talking walks at the requests of my therapist and the less time I'm not with her or my other screwed relatives the better off I am. Well,enough of the depression stuff. On a brighter note I do enjoy writing stories(though I some times can't finish what I started).I love comedy movies,action adventure movies,anime,manga. I enjoy learning all I can about psychological disorders,and anything related to science, I like peace and quiet,being by myself and just doing what I like (going to my youtube or myspace page,trying to learn how to draw using photo-shop and listening to a wide range of music.)
I came to this place like most of you did:To have others see & appreciate my art. and see If I can get some constructive criticism while at the same time see others works of art and try to see if I'm capable of being as good as them (there are some very professional looking drawing and I can't help but be impressed).Well that's all I'm going to say. If you don't like what I've written about myself and think I'm some kind of freak or social outcast,fine by me but if your not bothered by what I've wrote then that's fine too.
