DeviantArt.com is a place where people from all over the world come together to share their artistic abilities. I've always prided myself from my multiple talents, and my brain, but as I get older I sense that I'm losing them both. Math, for example, used to come so easily for me, and this year it's been my biggest struggle, and I've barely managed a B+ in that class. And yes, that's a bad grade for me, and, well, for anyone who's used to straight As. It's almost like that with all of my skills. I do not see my writing improving, and my art...well, it's still my art. :/ I feel like I'm letting people down, and I wonder if I'm slowly losing my "talent." Another talent that I once prided myself on was my singing. I fear that I may not be able to sing anymore. I can hear my voice get worse by the day, and my range is being clipped. I used to be able to hit high notes, but now I'm stuck in the middle. I can't go too low, and I can't go too high. I feel like I'm just slowly losing the side of myself that I love the most. It should depress me to realize this, but I can only bow my head in submission. I suppose what is going to happen, will happen. I'll either move past this, or lose my talents. And I know that some of you will say, "Just work harder for it! It doesn't come naturally!" or "Don't give up!" But I'm not giving up, and in this case, I've been writing and drawing every day in school, and after school, and I only see myself getting worse. :/ Not only that, but I sing all of the time....!
I suppose this is just a sad rant. Maybe I will feel more confident later. Perhaps tomorrow, or the day after that... Even so, I will try to get better, maybe try over with some simple baby steps--try to relearn everything. I've already done that with my cornet. And yes, I do play an instrument. A cornet is a smaller version of a trumpet, in case you didn't know. I just love the sound my lovely cornet makes. I never wish to be seperated from her. ^^ She is a great and beautiful brass intrument, my Valvery. And yes, I did name her. I named a her a long time ago, back in the sixth grade when I'd first got her. She's been with me for years.
