Ryan the Epic Sprinkler Repair Man
First deviation in a few years haha.  Still figuring out this painting thing, but it was fun!  
Ryan's a fun character. c:  I hope I can work on getting time/motivation to actually keep working on these OC's.
If anybody has some sweet acrylic paint tips or whatnot, I'd love to hear it! :J

It seems I've had so many new starts recently.  I suppose making a new start on this DA Journal can go on that list.
I recently got back from my religious mission to Japan!  It was way good, and I am so glad I went.
Most people who know me already know what a mission is about, but in case there is somebody who stumbles upon this and doesn't know, a LDS mission is a religious volunteer service where men and women have an opportunity to go live somewhere else for a year and a half to two years and dedicate their life to bringing themselves and others closer to Christ...  Simply put.
Being a missionary helped me a ton.  Some people doubt whether my mission was "successful."  They also question why I am not more upset at the outcome of my mission. (There are a lot of expectations missionaries and the missionary's family have of what should happen on a mission, a few of those expectation never happened for me.... forgive the vagueness! )  But I am so happy with who I've become and the lessons I've learned from volunteering for a year and a half, that everybody's doubts and questions don't bother me much.  :)
Anywhozle, that's a conversation for another day.
I've excited to be here.  I'm still figuring out what my priorities are... in order.  I know I have a lot of priorities, I just don't know exactly what order yet. =_=  
Well, one of them is understanding what kind of artist I want to become.  It seems there are so many other things that are more important in life than sitting down and drawing.  It's been like that since high school when I decided that I needed to focus on developing talents that would make me money.
I really regret all the time I missed drawing from pursuing other things that I thought would make my life more fulfilling, and I feel like my creative juices have been draining ever since that decision.  
Even now, I have a job, preparations for school, social life, and spending time helping my family (mostly my parents) that it seems I have no time to create a story or get lost in day dreams like I used to.  I miss that.
So instead of being droppy and sad about all the missed opportunities that might have been there, I plan on carving out of my day time for drawing.  I hope that means I get this account into action.
I'm happy to be home, and happy to have so many good things in my life right now.
Life is fantastic, even if I'm still learning how to live it at it's best.
