Pardon the lack of update, but I felt like I didn't have much worth saying...but now I do.

After three years, I'm finally returning to academia. I'll be starting school on the 18th of August, and I'll be entering the field of graphic design. I'm very excited to have a place where I can learn more about art and careers regarding it, as well as find myself challenged, and in pursuit of something that I enjoy doing. It hasn't really hit me yet, this whole going back to school thing. I suppose it's kind of surreal, though there is still that deeply rooted fear in me that I will only make it in to fail devastatingly once again. I'm currently under transfer probation, which in of itself, is already anxiety inducing...but due to my short funds and lack of scholarships, I'm just going to pile on the challenges.

In order to maintain enough income to be able to pay not only for the gas of commute (I do not have the luxury of living on campus this year), but groceries and my tuition (see 'lack of scholarships'), I'm going to have to be working part time to keep up with this. My current full-time employers were generous enough to offer me a part time position. But the only catch is that it is a graveyard shift, working from 11:30pm to around 2:30 or 5:30 in the morning, depending on the day. I'm uneasy about this based around what classes I might end up with timing wise, but my boss has said that he will work with me on my schedule, so I'm grateful for that. I wouldn't mind a day job, but I'm not about to snub a job either when it's handed to me. It also pays more than my current employment level...and I'll be transferring over with someone I already know from my own shift...so less scary...

I've already decided that if it does not work out well with my scheduling, and I end up trying to run myself into the ground by working it, I'll go ahead and drop the job at my current work and find somewhere else to work part time. As stipulation of my probation after all, I've got to keep my GPA above 2.0. And if I'm dropping letter grades because I can't stay awake/keep up with my work due to my schedule, I'm hardly going to be doing so hot, I think...

In the future, based on what happens with my skill/time/work ethic/oh god planning, I may see fit to open up commissions, though I'm not sure what the interest would be...so consider this an interest check?

I'll let you guys know about more stuff as it happens.

Non-Trad Graphic Design student. Not as much free time to art as I used to have, though I certainly try. Projects will probably be put up after I get some time and junk done. Unfortunately it probably won't be well...too impressive. I tend to saturate my gallery with fantasy and dragons mainly. Any fan art I do will most likely be related to Pokemon. So heads up.
