O U T O F O R D E R
"That's something nobody else ever tells you about in school... That people could be like this. That at some point, during the exam stress, the heartbreaks, the responsibilities of growing up, the pressure of trying to be better than everyone else - at some point in my life, I just broke. And nobody told me how to fix it."

A grungey sketch I did a couple of weeks back for my Final Major Project. This is one of many intimate representations of Anxiety and my struggle with it. I feel like my drawing style has significantly evolved from the anime I used to do and what I started this page for, but I've been fighting a lot of personal battles recently and I feel like this is the closest representation of my style and emotions.

I'm hoping to post more art specifically to raise awareness of mental illness and to try and erase the stigma attached to it. I've lost a lot of friends through them not being able to take me or my illness seriously but I'm only looking ahead from now on. <3

So I know I haven't been active for bloody ages, but I've just been so busy with college and work and Uni applications I've not really drawn anything at all since the summer.....graaaah. I'm not going to be a regular user on dA possibly for several months, but I will try and post more art, and some better quality stuff too. Everything's so stressful at the moment - I'm currently in the middle of designing and sewing my final piece for the end of term fashion show which is on Tuesday...so I really should get back to that. Anyway, hope to see you all very soon :)

I'm an 18 year old British girl who struggles with severe Anxiety. As a result, I struggle to engage well in social situations, meet new people, explain myself, speak up or go outside often. I find myself unable to cope when alone or on public transport and it also affects my job (I work in retail, so it's all about customer service and interaction) and my performance in college. 
 I really really want to go to University next year but I struggle with pulling decent grades from my course units (I'm doing a BTEC Extended Diploma in Art and Design, focusing on fashion. ) because I constantly worry that the work I do wont be good enough as the other kids in class and when I get low grades its a serious blow to my self esteem and usually ends in an emotional breakdown or Anxiety attack. 
I need advice on how to pull my weight in college this year and how to motivate myself to work harder than anyone else, as I'm aiming for Distinctions. I also need help with negativity and how to stop having such a negative attitude towards my work. My tutor has already discussed it with me but I'm not sure how to snap out of it. I'm rarely satisfied with anything I create or draw and I get bored of what i'm doing very easily.  I've got my heart set on going to this one specific University to do fashion design next year.  
I just really need some tips on how to totally smash this year, and maybe some help with dealing with Anxiety in an academic situation. I feel like it's the barrier between me and reaching my goals and I know I'm capable of being a high achiever because my grades and quality of work used to be incredible when I was younger and I didn't struggle with Anxiety.
Will greatly appreciate any sort of response x
