BIG NEWS!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 5, 2014, 4:09 PM

Heyo koneko! I'm feeling much better now, although I may still be contagious and I'm still fatigued. But I am re-opening my commissions! Just to be safe, I will work on all commissions while wearing a surgeon mask.

In other news, I am OFFICIALLY going back to school for an AS degree in graphic design. Class starts in 2 weeks and I'm a little nervous. I can only take 2 classes this semester since the other class conflicts with another, and one of the classes I'm taking is online only. So I'd only be going to school 2 hours a day, 2 days a week. Hopefully I can still volunteer at the hospital because my class hours overlap my usual volunteering hours. When I go back on Thursday, I will talk to my supervisor about it. I'm taking design history and digital illustration, and hopefully I can take typography in the spring, and I'll search for a graphic design internship for summer 2015 and make a design portfolio, then the degree's mine! I might register for Full Sail University afterward for their online graphic design bachelor's program, but I may want to work for a while first so that I can pay for it on my own. My lovely parents are paying for my tuition to get the AS, and I have the utmost gratitude and will show it off as much as I can. The reason why I didn't get a graphic design degree earlier was because budget cuts kept me from taking the classes I needed, and some of the classes I needed that were being taught were impossible for me to pass. But they changed the catalog and the required courses are SO much better; they have a list of classes/courses I absolutely had to pass, all of which had to do with design, then they had a list of "electives" that I'd have to pass at least 2 of, and surprisingly life drawing was in there, along with other classes I've already passed. I'm just glad I don't have to take art history [which was weird from the start because it's fine art history, not graphic] or photography [which I got a D in, but that's because I completely forgot about the online assignments].

Even though I'm going back to school, I'm still looking for part-time work. Since I rarely get commissions and I only get $20 a week in allowance, I don't earn much and there are expensive, nice things I'd like to obtain. Like a monthly box subscription to Birchbox and/or KawaiiBox, a Hell Bunny dress, 4-inch platform boots, that Hot Toys Loki figure I want so bad... I was told about a training academy for software testing in Santa Monica, but it's a one-hour drive and not sure if it'd go well since I'm in college, but I'm applying anyway. I also applied for Target 'cause they need backroom team members, and I think I'd be a good asset by keeping shelves organized and making sure products are where they're supposed to be.

If you're subscribed to me on YouTube, you'll see that I have put up a HUGE craft update, featuring my dolls of the Game Grumps, Ninja Brian, and Commander Holly. If you haven't seen it yet, you can see it here: 



In the description you can find a link to the picture Ross posted on his Instagram of the dolls of him and Holly. I'm just so happy they all love them! I really wanna make more stuff for them, because they're such a huge inspiration and I feel that they had an impact on my decision to go back to school. Like watching Ross livestream drawing characters for his animations made me wanna do more illustrations, hearing Danny sing made me wanna sing more often and be more active on my YouTube channel, and Holly makes me wanna make my own cosplays using my magic knitting skills. I think it would be a dream come true if I ever had the opportunity to work with them, like assisting Suzy in her Grump secretarial work, or designing an album/single cover for Ninja Sex Party and/or Starbomb, or even designing merchandise graphics for their online store [or MANAGING their online store!]. Oooh, I just wanna roll around happily in a pile of possibilities! Even my hands are getting shaky, so I better stop typing before I lose control. So until next time!

P.S. I WILL NOT TAKE COMMISSIONS ON DOLLS IN THE SAME STYLE AS THE GRUMP DOLLS. THE PATTERN'S NOT MINE AND NOT MINE TO USE TO SELL ITEMS. HOWEVER, I AM ABLE TO MAKE THEM FOR ART TRADES.
