Struggling: A Second Welcome Message

So I decided to change my name to marytriesart, and this blog will showcase my pathetic attempts in making art. I guess I have always wanted to become an artist. But I wouldn't call myself a "struggling artist" though because I have never done anything to become one. And I can't even sing! (But I have a feeling that when I was younger I could sing because my third grade teacher once asked me to join the school choir, and a friend--who sings really well by the way--told me when we were in high school that he was surprised that I had a pretty good voice [upon hearing me sing karaoke for the first time.]) But that was before. I swear I wouldn't be hitting the right notes when I sing even a simple song right now.

And I can't draw. I can't draw even if my parents enrolled me in an art workshop when I was in grade school. This is as far as my drawing skills can go.

And I even cheated. I copied that dog from somewhere.

And, aaaah, photography. My love for it is suddenly dying. There are too many photographers already and I feel that I am very left behind. I don't even have my own DSLR yet. Nevertheless, I will continue taking photos as a hobby and not as a profession (as I have originally planned).

My officemate told me he's a "struggling artist." I have a friend who is a "struggling guitarist." At least they have something to struggle about right? I am just struggling to find my inner talent, what I'm really good at. Hope I find it real soon.
