Although I love drawing, I do not study nor make art as a career. I am instead a Biology university student in her 3rd year, dealing with literature review, assignments, and a big lab report yet to come as my dissertation. I only draw because I'm in love with this hobby.
Funny thing though, I actually spend more time on my hobby than on my study, and this is quite dangerous for a final year student at a university. I just cannot control my urge to draw, and this urge increases especially when I'm dealing with deadlines and exam periods. This is even more worrying but I cannot help it. Millions of ideas for drawing just suddenly burst in my head during these important dates, and I just have to draw them down, making only a small, very small, period of time left for my assignments and revisions. This kind of ideas burst never occur when I actually have spare time for drawing. Frustrating, ay?
However, I've actually managed through each time and didn't really get a bad marks for my assignments and exams. Maybe it is because of the large amount of work my brian has to do during deadlines and exam periods that ideas for art automatically pop up. Well, whatever the reasons, I'm accepting this anyway since that's a part of me that's hard to change. Maybe one day, my drawing WILL get in the way and affect my responsibilities, like jobs and chores, badly, but before that day shows up, I'm just gonna continue this lifestyle.
Just being a trouble for myself, say?
