It’s finally here. All the time I’ve spent these last few weeks has finally come to this. Needless to say I am pretty darn nervous. But yet I am also excited as well. Okay, enough of that. So I decided when pitching to CCAD that i would pitch my story “P.A.H.” In the beginning it was a cheesy college story. Cliche I know. But i loved it. CCAD did too apparently.
But as time passed one of the other stories ive been working on began knocking on the door in my mind, asking to be let out.
Which is why “S.S” was resurected.
Both these stories hold alot of significance to me. As i have both dealt with the sudden death of a close friend and the trouble that ensues after abuse.
A young man I use to be very close to (dated for almost three years) passed away on March 27, 2017. Hours before the first day of my spring quarter at SCAD. I had litterally just talked to him earlier the night before.
The last thing he ever said to me was “jessi I know you can do anything.”
I shouldve told him how much he meant to me as a friend.
Needless to say, it broke me.
So this is how my bartender story got revised and became “S.S”
“S.S” is also a way for me to possibly get some closure on the fact that my close friend passed away. The fact that a spirit is involved is giving me the hope that maybe just maybe , he is watching over me proud.
“P.A.H.” was evolved to include the focus of abuse. How you need friends in trying times. I was the victim of an accident a few years ago that has made me partially deaf in my right ear.
I only recently found this out after numerous steroid injections, medication, and hope. It been interesting.
Also i thought i’d bring this up as well. I am sorry. Im sorry if these posts seem to jump subjects constantly. I was recently sadly forced to switch medications due to a new doctor. After being on Vyvanse since i was 10, i was told to get off of it cold turkey and begin taking an antidepressant instead (its a bit weird). So im on week 2 of weening off of vyvanse and taking the antidepressant. So my adhd does slip through a bit more now.
So heres some generic artwork i have for presentation
