Its already 2016. Wow. It feels like I was just panicking over my essay for my art history class.
Well, a lot of things are happening to me. A lot of good things. I will be taking fives classes, four of them being art classes. One of them will be my stress reliever class, so that will be nice. The good news about five classes means I only have five more classes (if things go according to plan) to complete. Downside is, I'm going to school six days a week. I am giving my precious Friday and Saturday which I normally dedicate to work or at least having a social life. It will be tough, there is no doubt. I will have to deal with the same teacher two days in a row for six hours. My friend hated this teacher with a passion, so my hope is that we get along.
My classes that I am taking are an anthropology class (one of the last GE classes!), figure drawing, life painting, intermediate painting, and advanced printmaking. You guys might be seeing my class art. Now, this is if things go according to plan. I could turn out to despise one of my teachers or other reasons that makes me drop the class, but I will have to wait and see. I'm trying to get myself to go through with these classes till the last day by going to Fanime (a con out of town and is amazing. I was there when I was younger and loved every minute of it). Wish me luck on that!
Sacanime was awesome. I got a few commissions down and it made me so happy! I didn't cosplay like I wanted. I realized that I have been in a funk about that. I think my problem is that my self esteem had been dropped thanks to my old job. I had trouble motivating myself to even get a project started. I also relied a lot on my mom to help me and got frustrated with her when she didn't agree with how she thought the cosplay should be. I think I realized what my problem was when I got home one day and talked to my mom about it. But, I told her 2016 was going to be a big year for me and change was going to happen.
Other things are also happening in my life too. My dad got a new job. He's now a Parks and Recreation director! If you have seen Parks and Recreation on TV, then he now has Ron Swanson's job. In two weeks, he will no longer have Leslie Knope's job (which is basically saying he was second in command). I will no longer be the boss's daughter (actually, he wasn't my boss, but he oversees my boss). I was upset when I heard since we moved to be closer to his job and he had been his city for almost 20 years, but then I realized that he was never going to be a director unless he worked for another city and he was ready to move onto a new city where he can make an impact. Other news is that the Macy's I used to work at will be closing. While I'm happy that I no longer work there, it saddens me to see it go. A lot of my coworkers have been there for years, so its a little heartbreaking to hear that. I might visit them one last time before I leave (I haven't visited them since I got my new job).
Has anyone here played the new Rise of the Tomb Raider game? If you haven't, then please do! It is amazing! I can't put it into words how fun it was. So much more tombs to explore and things to collect. The story was perfect. Lara was so strong and independent. It brings a tear to my eye. I'm also playing Dragon Age Origins after seeing fan art for the third game at Sacanime. Also, my friend really likes the game. It took a couple of days, but I like the story line. I'm not used to being patient and really in control of my player's actions, but its been a fun so far. Hoping to finish it before school starts.
Well that's it for me. How have you guys been?
