*sigh* I just spent forever writing a huge introduction only to have the internet screw up on me as I post it. It's things like this that I swear the world is out to get me.
Anyway, sorry about this. I guess you'll just have to deal with a craptastic introduction because there's no way I can write that all over again...
(Oh well, it probably would've just bored everyone anyway...)
[edit: Ok, I'm a little less peeved right now... A bit about myself: I'm 21, an artist, unemployed. I found this forum through searching on google for a place to talk about my thoughts. I know it won't really help me in the long run, but it provides some temporary relief, I guess. I look forward to meeting you all as this seems like a great community.]
