Where Are the Updates?
Okay. To be fair, I haven't been gone that long, and there have been miscellaneous updates from other lovely NoCSUN members and associates such as
. I've also updated my comic for the first time in four-plus months so YAY at least there's that. The full story is that my life turned upside, shook itself until a lot of important bits fell off into the endless dark void, then righted itself again to bask in the sunlight while its tail caught on fire a few times. I really don't know what kind of metaphor I was going for there.
To summarize a very complicated and emotionally schizophrenic semester: I spent an inordinate amount of time fretting over the emotional, physical, and financial safety of everyone in my life except myself, which in turn caused school to go FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK which in the end also affected my job a little and my friendships a lot, aaaaand as a logical conclusion to nearly failing out of school again I applied to the exclusive, high-powered Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatrical Design program and got accepted.
Oh yeah did I also mention I'm possibly moving in a month.
To a house where my bedroom will be slightly smaller than the first floor of my current home.
Can we say 19'x14' art studio? Yeeeess, yeeess I think we can.
But What Does It Mean...?
It's quite possible that I won't be updating much until 2011. With the move planned for just after the semester ends, I won't have a lot of time or sanity to throw much together that's not school-related. I'll try, though! I do love working on cosplay and comics and everything. I'm bursting with plans and ideas, it's just a matter of finding some free time.
The other important thing to mention is how the BFA program will affect my free time. This is essentially like being given a full-time job, or maybe more - in my BFA contract, I had to sign that I understood I will likely be working late nights, weekends, and even holidays. This is going to eat up a lot of derpy cosplay time. On the other hand, I'm now getting a degree in derpy-cosplay-time, so I'm not feeling too bad about it, myself.
If all goes well, we get this house, and I pull through and rock at this BFA program, it's quite possible there will be much, much fewer updates from me. However, it's also possible something will happen like with my make-up course, and you'll be seeing ten times as many updates from me. Whatever the case, I ask that you not fret, because regardless of quantity, my aim is improvement, and that should be beaten into me pretty thoroughly next semester.
Mega-size personal art studio. Unexpected crazy move. Mega art improvement. Masochistic college program from hell. Ooblahdee oobblahdah, life goes on.
The final truth is: I've stopped caring if life is shit, or if it's not. It goes on regardless of what you think of it, or how you act on it, or what you want it to be. Everything shitty in life will move on. Seize the good parts and ride along.
I may look like that ungodly tired waif at the top, there, but I'm doing great, guys.
I'm doing really great. ♥
