So some background info… I’ve been told by random strangers who’ve seen me drawing that I’m really good at it. One time this old lady saw an older drawing I had done and her jaw dropped and she gave me a compliment. I could show you the picture later. Right now this issue is bothering me and I don’t feeling like turning on the computer and scanning the drawing (on mobile).
I met this girl 2 days ago on the 17th. She was very pretty. I drew the important parts of her face and the groupings of hair in about 4 minutes. Then I drew areas where shading, or lack of, would be. Later that day I went to a restuarant with some new aquaintences (is that how you spell it?) and they saw me finishing off the details of shading and hair. They said it was good. So it pretty much took me an hour to complete the portrait from start to finish.
I signed it then put the date “7/18/15” (I’d was just putting the finishing touches as I saw her again). By chance, today, my friends had sat behind her so so did I. I noticed she liked to doodle. Later, she and I had a very short conversation because I was in the background of her selfie wih her friend. I had a great mental debate within myself about whether or not to give her the drawing. It would be the first time I did something like that so I didn’t know what she’d think. I told myself, “What’s the worst that could happen?” and “Man up!”. I ended up placing it by her stuff while she wasn’t there. Her and her friend probably think that I drew it though. The acted friendly before I did that. Then they acted strange. I had a bus ride home with her friend and as I walked by I nodded and she ignored me. Maybe she saw, maybe she didn’t.
I won’t see the girl again for at least another year. But I’ll be thinking about it for a week. Why am I so stupid?
Now that I had a chance to relate the story and get it off my chest, comment on it and answer the title question (not the “Why an I so stupid?” question). Thanks for reading!
