I learned a lot of great things when I went to college. I also met my wife and made some great friends.

I also got kind of stiff. Maybe it's because I was surrounded by lots of people who were similar, when I had been used to growing up the "weird one." This attitude was not imposed on me--I think it's just competitive nature to want to seem cool and mysterious.

I've found that living that way has slowly dimmed my soul.

I'd now like to make a fool of myself. Well, no--there is a balance--but I just don't want to care about how I'm perceived, or how what I'm creating at any given moment fits into a package that I can sell to someone I don't even know.

I forgot what a funny picture was.

tom thinks change

It's time for a change. I'm not sure what it is yet, but I need to start being more honest with my work. I've reached a point where I think that only super refined work can be added to my site, as if I need to impress someone, but the original excitement I had about having a website was the ability to share what I was working on at any given moment. I'd like to return to that frame of mind and start putting up more drawings and dumb animation. I've been taking myself way too seriously.
