Sometimes what you need in life to push you forward is change, and there is a lot of that going on in my life. Personal changes for me that I am not going to go into but some close friends on here know what it is. Job changes came out of no where. Nick took a job in Michigan and left his job here open. I was not going to apply for it at all, but with his support and prodding I did and amazingly was hired on! That means more than 3 times my income that I make currently and I am thrilled to be heading to financial stability, even if that means I am entering an area that I am not completely comfortable with jobwise XD.
My major is also changing! After a frustrating year at my college I had a good long talk with my advisor. I was just NOT happy with illustration and the pigeon holed method that my college offered to go about creating said illustrations. My passion is digital art and story telling. I wanted to learn that, not how to fail at gouche! So they proposed that I venture into Visual Development. I took a look at the program and decided that was something I could be excited about doing! I actually have my first digital class this semester! The coursework looks INTENSE and everyone in this class already has a leg up on me but I am really excited about this!
Happy and sad stresses all around, it is going to be a tough rest of the year with a HUGE learning curve but I feel ready
