The high school I attended was a school for the arts, with dance, music, drama, and art being special audition-required curriculums that lasted your entire high school stay. My "Art" class was like a more advanced class that was supposed to prepare us for actual art college. We learned everything from techniques to history... although I found the art history segments the most boring thing in the universe.
The point is, I used to draw every single day... and I miss it. I couldn't even tell you where half of my art supplies went, and that makes me sad. Life got in the way, actual paid jobs and time got in the way, and my pencils and pens took a back seat. In the back of my mind I always tell myself that "once I finish such and such", or "once I free some time," I will put the ink back on the paper, but I realized something. We have to make time for the things we love. I think it's healthy to put all that other stuff on hold and do something for yourself once in a while. When was the last time you accomplished something totally for your own desire? Whether it's drawing, baking, singing, or anything you never make enough time for, make that time and screw everything else. Doing something that makes you happy is the best way to stay inspired, and all of that other stuff that needs to get done can wait.
