Well, I'm back in school doing another
semester at Shoreline Community College learning about Animation and
Multimedia. Last semester (summer 2014) I had Photography, 2D Design
and Basic Image Manipulation. I would have also had a class on “How
To Use A Mac” but I tested out of it. I made A's in all of my
So this semester I'm taking four
classes: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Drawing and Game Design.
I'm having loads of fun in each class but am most intimidated by the
Drawing class. I have a lot more confidence in my ability to be
creative with words and through film making but I need to get better
at drawing (at least illustration for storyboards and animation).
I also have a part-time job to help
extend the Unemployment training benefits through the end of my
program (there's a complex set of rules as to how much you can work
before you're considered fully employed and I'm staying on the right
side of the equations). So far it's just enough work to help pay the
bills without getting in the way of school. It does get in the way of
me doing film production on the weekends so that's kind of a bummer
but roof over our heads and food on the table through December of
2015 is also a good thing. That's when the schooling should be over
and I can hopefully become gainfully employed with my new skill set.
I'm still taking a break from
relationships. I've been thinking about this and right now I just
don't know what I can offer to someone as far as a relationship. I
mean, yes, I do miss physical companionship. And it would be nice to
eventually find someone to share my life with or at least talk to and
do stuff with. But there's time and effort that goes into a
relationship. Right now I feel kind of mentally blocked in my ability
to devote time and effort to a relationship.
So that's where I'm at right now. I
know the thousands of people following my every move will be
satisfied that I'm updating the blog.
