I want to post an interview I did for Michael Regina!
You can find it here! Michael had a really awesome introduction that left me smiling so I wanted to say thanks Michael! :)

I recently had another interview with CBC radio for my storybook and going in, I was extremely nervous being on the air live. All the thoughts of a whole province listening to me and the fact that there would be no retries flooded my mind. I ended up doing okay but it left me thinking of many different situations that are in a similar vain. For instance, at ComicCons, I am asked to do sketches for people. The best way to draw something for someone in the moment (being 10-15 minutes) is to relax and not take things too seriously. Once we take the situation seriously, that's when we start messing up. All the best sketches I've done was when there was no pressure (like in my note books in high school.) I guess the point is, know that it's not the end of the world if you fail. It's experience and you can only get better at it from that point on. Many people tend to take the safe route out of life (getting a degree because that's what society has told us to do) because they are afraid of failure. Don't let it stress you out. If you're passionate enough about something, it'll work out in the end. If you fail a few times, it's just life asking you, "hey, are you really that passionate about this?" And if the answer is no, then you'll quit. If the answer is yes, then you'll pick yourself up and keep going. :) *I think I'm stealing that line from someone else... I'm unsure where I've heard that before but it's true!

Have a great week!
