A very special thank you to Devin for drawing Nhan Cat Kiya – a play on words of sorts for Nyan Cat. She wanted to draw me Kiya again to help cheer me up, which this drawing definitely put a smile on my face. I think Kiya came out very cute. I especially love the ball of yarn in the corner. A very nice touch.
I am very grateful that destiny has allowed me to meet awesome people like Devin in these past few years. Though times can be really tough, it’s great to know I have people who are willing to help me out, not just for these random projects of mine, but to remind me that I am never alone. When my friends like Devin believe in me, I can have more confidence in myself that I am on the right track toward “recovery.”
I definitely have more internet friends than real-life friends, at least at this point in my life.
Internet friends have always been easy for me to make. Through mediums such as online gaming, it is a cinch to make the acquaintance of someone far, far away from me and then become good buddies as if we had known each other for years.
Conversely, real-life friends are more difficult for me to get used to. I am naturally shy and socially awkward, I may or may not have social disorders and I am very reluctant to come out of my shell around people in general. These factors, among other things, contribute to why I do not make real-life friends as easily.
