Hmm, it's been a bit.. XD I remember those days when I used to update frequently. I guess Tumblr serves as a bit more of an update and vent area, but since I'm here as well, I should start being being more active.
School-wise, I figured that if I don't fail any more (I'm working really hard to not slack off this time, I've already gotten suspended once and that was a nightmare because I lost financial aid), then I have 11 more classes until I can get my AAS in Graphic Design. After that, I was thinking that I might try to go for a teaching degree. It's just a thought for now, but it's a suggestion that I've been hearing since I was in elementary school as well, and hear even now at college from my classmates.
We recently had Jessie Hornbrook (a gorgeous and awesome intaglio printmaker-- www.jessiehornbrook.com
) come down to our college as a guest speaker, due in part to her being my teacher's old classmate from college to show us some techniques for printmaking in one of my classes. She also sort of suggested, along with another classmate, that art therapy might be another career choice for me because she seemed to be interested in that I mentioned I wanted to go for a degree in speech therapy after I'd finished high school. It's like there's all sorts of things out there all of a sudden--and I'm almost out of time for my usual financial aid too. *sighs*
My commissions are still open ikitsumidaminito.tumblr.com/po…
, and I'm willing to take anything anytime because of this stupid car insurance to pay off--and like I mentioned, my financial aid will only last me this next year. At the moment though, I'm so bogged down with homework that I've had to put one of my commissions on hold for a week while I try to finish a huge project for class. (Even worse is the art block--coming up with ideas is really tricky when my teacher won't allow typography or words within the designs). My brain has probably been dead all week..
Also I wonder if I might have a bit of a 'status change' soon? (It's obvious what that refers to >w>;; *brick'd*) Aah, learning patience is a virtue, I have to remember that...
