Thought I would update since it’s been a while since then. As I’m sure you all know I just turned 24, I feel old XD Thank you all for the birthday wishes! The only downside was that I had to work, but overall, it was a good birthday.
With the semester is almost half over and I’m on Spring Break now, so I get a little time to relax. As usual, things in college are stressful and I have a class that I despise, which doesn’t surprise me anymore. Though ironically, it’s a class I thought I would love after all the other frustrations I have had endure (I won’t name this class for safety reasons). I expected a little grief from this particular class, but I never thought it would be so horrible. The main problem is our teacher, who is probably the worst I ever had. He/She goes too fast, he/she doesn’t tell us things relating to the class that we should be informed of, his/her terms of grading are unreasonable and unfair. He/She clearly is a professional on the subject, but he/sheis a crappy teacher. And it’s not just me, my classmate hate it too. He/She better not be expecting a good teacher review from me at the end of the semester. I’ll just have to suck it up for one more month and I can kiss this university goodbye (technically after August, that is).
We’ve been short-handed since last September, which leaves us having to pull more weight than we should have to. To make things worse, I found out that the parent-company of my job is cutting benefits to all employees. As for part-timers like me, we’re having our PTO (Paid-Time-Off) taken away from us starting this May. And for what? Just to make their fat wallets a little fatter… I’m finally developing a social-life and now I have to lose about $80 a day from work to keep it. It’s just outrageous, not to mention unfair. I never ruffled any feathers, I always did my job, my boss and co-workers appreciate me, I deserve better than this. My parents tell me to just “see myself as a number/someone they can easily replace” when it comes to work, but how is that good advice? That sounds like it came from someone with no aspiration to move up in this world. I can get my PTO back by moving up to full-time, which I think I’ll do during the summer, but I think that by the end of the year, I’m going to at least start looking for a new job. My current job is too far away from where I live since we moved anyway. For now, I’m just going to stick with it since I’ve got too much going on to really think about looking for something better and given that I’m graduating and also going to look for my own place, it’s a lot to consider.
As for art, I apologize for the lack of new pieces. I want to draw more, but stuff keeps getting in the way. I’ve been making some more comic strips for my school paper that I want to get in before I graduate and leave it. I’m also in the process of working on some promotional art for a local card game tournament as a commission. It was too good of an opportunity to pass up because you never know who will see it. I just want to warn you guys now, I may be going on a bit of an MLP-kick for a while. There’s a local convention coming up later this year and I plan on getting a vendor table and I want to make sure I have some variety of prints to sell. I really need to start getting into this more to get myself out there.This is not to say I won't draw other things, but MLP will be my primary focus for the next few months.
So, the semester is half-over, had to deal with some stupid crap over the last few months, but by mid-April, I’m expecting things to look up. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. Later!
|I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and I've always loved it. My main interest in art would have to be cartoons. Some people may see cartoons as mere means of childish entertainment, but I believe that cartoons are as legitimate as any other art-form. They have the power to make us laugh, feel, and think, just like any other form of art. My love for cartoons has also contributed to my interest in furry art. Lately, I've been drawing fanart of my favorite videogames and other media, but I hope to make my own webcomic with my own characters and become like the artists I idolize. I also enjoy video-games including Sonic the Hedgehog and Kingdom Hearts. I'm currently in college, working towards getting a Bachelor's degree and hopefully will be able to land a career as a animator, cartoonist, or freelance artist. I still have a lot to learn even as an adult.|
