Thank you everyone for the responses.
Dear Marcello Cristiano-
I forget all my troubles as well when I watch Doctor Who, even when I've watched the episode many times before. I've probably watched the Ark In Space 4 times by now. Love love love that episode. I'm even much cheerier when I wear my scarf, though that doesn't happen so often because the school I go to now is a uniform school and they have something against long scarves. Shame on them. It's not like I'm trying to wear jeggings or halter tops.
Awesome, another artist.
I wish I could make little TARDISes out of wood too, but I don't trust myself with the cutting tools needed just yet, and I don't think my dad is willing to buy said tools.
I love drawing people too. I also like doing still lives, but people have always captivated my interest. It's a shame I didn't learn how to draw faster back in NYC, as that would have been interesting to have been able to draw people on the subways. Certainly some interesting characters there.
Thanks. I'm beginning to feel a lot more comfortable about being nerdy, as I found out that half my new school is nerdy, though mostly computer nerds, of which I am to some extent as well. There's even this one junior who is known school-wide for his Doctor Who obsession, and in science class during labs we tend to act out scenes or generally talk a lot about Doctor Who, and now everybody knows us as those Doctor Who kids. Fun times.
I'm glad to have a forum like this, finally. It's nice to have this little area of awesome to look forward to after grueling hours of school and driver's ed.
Texas has begun to cool down a little bit, we're in the 70s and 80s now. My stepmother says it usually dips down to 60s around halloween, which is perfect because my costume is pretty much 4 layers of clothing counting the scarf. It'll be awesome though.
I think I may have Bi-Polar disorder to some extent as well, and my father's side of the family has a long line of clinical depression-related disorders, and though most of them weren't diagnosed, it's pretty obvious with some of them...
Generally when I'm depressed I have no desire to do anything, and watching movies and TV doesn't usually take a whole lot of effort, so I put in a Doctor Who DVD and at least for an hour-hour and a half I forget that I'm depressed. Usually the best hour-hour and a half of the week.
I don't get a whole lot of time to watch Doctor Who and I won't have any audios til my birthday due to lack of money, but when I'm feeling down, I usually draw Doctor Who art. Right now I've got a Tom crosshatching piece in the making which I hope will be done soon because I've been working on it FOREVER. Partly because I have no free time any more, partly because I can't get his right eye drawn correctly for whatever reason.
I'm also so grateful that I was accepted here so fast; most sites I join only people I know in real life greet me, and when I don't know anybody on the site I'm generally ignored. You guys rock. <3
I just noticed the smilies limit too. This might help me get over my smily addiction.
