I was working as a personal banker up until earlier this year. It was a sales job, surprisingly, and I was forced to meet quotas while kissing the asses of the rich on their high horses and the financially irresponsible citizens of our town. I would wake up in the middle of the night with fits of anxiety, not to mention I just had one of the worst break ups in my life, which later led me into a depression.
I'm also an avid gamer, or at least it's one of my hobbies, so I usually retreated to my consoles ( yeah yeah... I'm not a pc gamer... yet >_>) to escape the thralls of my day to day life. Especially during this time, it was my only consolation really, I have a few friends, and I prefer it this way, since my forward attitude usually drives people away, or these individuals who I attempt to call friends end up just sucking... I really shouldn't get into it.
At the time, my muse was Dragon Age Inquisition. Long story short, if I didn't initiate a dialog with Cassandra ( soon to be the divine) I wouldn't have made the next big turn that would change my life. In her words, or roughly at least,
" Do not complain about something you're not willing to change yourself."
Not only did I adopt this into the many ways of Janna, I quit my job I decided to finally begin chasing after my passions in life. I've collaborated with a few gentlemen working on a graphic novel and began focusing full time on my schooling in animation. I've been the happiest I've been in years.
BTW, When we get the first issue out I hope you guys will read it. I'll be posting it here so you guys get first dibs.
Even if this dies and fades away into the oblivion of DA, I needed to say it.
Thank you, with love.
