Re-introducing myself

underdarkness's picture

I haven't posted here in a while, besides the occasional poem. I usually just read what other people are writing and occasionally post on that stuff, though my voice isn't worth much in this community. I'm not part of the inner clique that goes on here, I'm not particularly familiar with some of the new faces that have popped up here within the last year.

So, I feel as though it's time for me to re-introduce myself into the Oasis community.

I'm twenty years old, twenty-one this August (woo!), I've been in a relationship with a wonderful guy for about nine months, I'm in college, majoring in Art.

If anybody is interested in my artwork, my basic portfolio can be found on http://avirae.deviantart.com

My stuff isn't nearly as good as Adam A's, but I try. A lot of what's there is old sketch work, but you get the idea.

My friends would tell you that I'm random as hell. I've been known to dress up as a banana and chase a guy dressed up as a gorilla down the halls of my old high school.... simply the best.

I've been writing a book for about two years, the first of a series. I'm nearly done and really proud of my progress.

I write a lot. Mostly poetry. Dark humor. Fun.

Anywho, I'd like to start posting more often and get involved in the community.

Hi, underdarkness, I'm Merric and I have been known to go dumpster diving on occasion!
Now that that's out of the way...
Oh, also, I really really like your art.

Hey there underdarkness! It

Hey there underdarkness!
It will be great to see more of you here,
there isnt an inner clique,
more just a bunch of loud people who enjoying talking :)

It is thyself, mine own self's better part;
Mine eye's clear eye, my dear heart's dearer heart;
My food, my fortune, and my sweet hope's aim,
My sole earth's heaven, and my heaven's claim.
-William Shakespeare, The Comedy Of Errors

Inner clique...

I think all you have to do to join the inner clique is not sleep. It all seems to go down from like 1 to 3am PT. I could be wrong about that, as I'm asleep.

I totally recognize your username.

Does that count for anything? Heh.

I love your art by the way.

Looking at yours and Adams art makes me feel like I have no real talent. XD'

I mean, I guess I can draw. But my art isn't interesting or clever. It's just. Bleck.

But maybe everyone feels that way about their own art. *shrug*

Plus, you guys are A) older than me and B) have been in some real art classes, where I haven't really. Just basic stuff. So maybe I shouldn't beat myself up over it. |D

I've been working lately at pinning my style down.

ayup, welcome!! or, welcome back!! or...something like that, lol.

there's no real inner clique, it's just that some of us have been through some hard times lately, and have banded together to get through it. but we're not discriminant in our love!!! :D and we welcome you into our arms of randomness wholeheartedly!
