Hello, my name is Vanessa. I am a 19 year old sophomore in college. The main purpose of my journal is to be an accessory to my portfolio website, but I post about a lot of everyday stuff as well. I enjoy writing (fiction) and painting (watercolor).
Writing is my favored medium, and I prefer to write in the fantasy/scifi/life-drama genres. Right now I'm working on finding a middleroad where my expectations and my skills concerning writing can co-exist.
Painting is more stress relief than anything else. I think recently it's replaced poetry as an outlet. A local art gallery said that they'd consider giving me a showing if I had several more paintings for them to look at by the end of the year, so I'm working on that.
