Howdy! It's been a long time since I was last here. And coming back... Wow my art was bad but I had to start somewhere, right?
So, as soon as I logged in on my phone, I realized that I had watched WAY too many people. So I just spent the last hour of my life and 30% of my battery unwatching a lot of people.
If you get this in your notifs and want me to start watching you again, I will.
Looking back on "baby" me has been a journey. And while I will admit I laughed at myself-
I am also very proud of Ally. I am not Ally anymore, I haven't used that name for a very long time. I used that because I was an "ally" to those I cared about, and unintentionally the LGBTQ+ community. Well, considering realizations I made about myself last year, I'm not exactly an "ally" anymore, anyway. I'm a lesbian. Funny how things turn out, huh?
I wont lie. I cried from both hysterics and pure nostalgia and happy memories while going over this account. Seeing the birthday wishes you left despite my absence...
The happy wishes... The memories... Damn, now im crying again.
When I started this account, I think I was 13? 14? Who knows. Well, I probably could if I checked. Nah.
But regardless of that, I'm 17 years old now and still going strong.
Looking back... I still hold so much love for all of you. Going through the accounts of old friends has been a real ride. I know im saying that a lot, but I mean it. A mix of wincing, admiration for what I went through, and how much I've improved... Wow.
And to think, when I started, I thought I was straight and even had a boyfriend at one point... Thats wild. Absolutely wild. Almost unbelievable, really.
But... I missed all of you. I didnt know i did, but I did. After all this time, I just shrugged off my past, this account, as my "cringe" days or my "bad" days. But now, I think just the impressive improvement I made just on this account is wild. Not to mention the improvements I made while I was gone.
I've come so far. And I'm sure all of you have too, whether you know it or not. I sure didnt. But even now, I see major improvements but slight similarities in my old art with my "new" art. And wow. To think I started out with just a computer mouse. I just... Wow.
I might post a life update journal, I might not. But I wanted to say thank you. But for the past... Lets say 4 hours, I didnt know HOW! How could I possibly thank you all for helping me reach where I am now? For helping me create the foundation of my hobbies and myself now?
I still dont know if my answer will suffice. I'm going to try to hold onto enough motivation to rewrite, and maybe redraw some old works of mine.
But what I do know is that "Just Like Me" is the first thing up. My characters will remain, even if a bit op... And I will try to portray them how I can now. But cut me some slack if I do redraw some of them-
I havent drawn a pony in maybe 2 years.
But writing? I can definitely do that. So hey, if any of you are still out there, lets have a chat, maybe? I'd love to refresh some old memories with you all. And if I am still watching you, that means I remembered you because I found you in my notifs or i just couldn't forget your icon. But if im not and you know me, hit me up, I'll watch you again.
Now, on the day of the Solar Eclipse, I love you all.
I hope we can talk soon.
