The answer is strong YES. An energetic OF COURSE!!
I've always grappled with the question of: Are you an artist? (and of course the questions of: Where are you going to college? What are you majoring in? etc., but that's for another day). And I never knew how to answer it! "Yeah I guess," or "Only in my freetime" didn't really cut it. I've drawn my entire life! I didn't really question it; I just thought "This is just something I do..."
I never fully COMMITTED to a title; I always thought "Well maybe I'm a musician or a singer," keeping my options open before I gave myself over to one thing. But the thing is...the absolutely beautiful thing is...you can have as many "titles" as you want! You can like, love, study, immerse yourself in, rant about, etc. more than one thing!! Once I stopped thinking "You can only have one passion that you must spend the rest of your life on trying to find a career in!!" the weight on my shoulders fell off. So for that matter, I think I've finally decided that yes, I am an artist. And a stargazer, and a singer, and a romantic, and a poet, and a generally passionate person. And anything else I decide to be.
