I've just been so busy with life and trying to get it all together. I'm super excited though cause next week is my last week in college ever! I'll be an official graduate student from VMCAD and the ceremony isn't until next year, but I'll damn well be there to walk the "stage"(room) to get my diploma cause I earned it! I admit my feels are mixed about this college. On the one hand it was hard as hell. I've had to take multiple classes twice, I've been up late nights working (or crying) cause it's just an intense experience.
On the other hand, I believe it's the hard work I've done that made me kinda realize I'm capable of doing it and finishing something I've started. It's also kinda funny cause when I thought of giving up, I had that feeling forever because I really thought that graphic design was something I couldn't do. It was also a huge struggle because I really couldn't find that thing that stuck or that I was good at, and when you're in a room where everyone else seems to have their feel of what they want to do and their skill level is phenomenal it's a bit disheartening. However, just at that peak I stuck with it and just kept going and something incredible happened. Not only did I find that skill or niche of style of mine, I went downhill with my jingle bell sleigh and caught the drops of chocolate rain in my bucket! I don't think I've ever felt suck a huge wave of confidence hit me against the brick wall and held me there with 4 rolls of duct tape! My professor even said I have a style that could really fit in with American Greetings as an independent illustrator! Even if it's just a chance, that's a BIG deal to hear!!
It's been pretty good with Calvin and I too ^^ Next week we'll hit out 6 months and for him and I to still love each other more than the last day is truly a blessing He's filled me with such hope and really has been my rock through the tough times and I couldn't ask for a better man~ He also kinda spoils me which I kinda feel bad with sometimes lol Don't spoil me hunny!
I've also been sewing a lot more! I've made three dresses within the last three months and I'm getting ready to work on my Haru cosplay! I'm starting with the hoop skirt underneath since that just makes sense. I figure if I make it out of muslin, it's cheap, and surprisingly comfy against my skin :3 This is gonna be my huge sewing project for Colossalcon and I'm excited and nervous at the same time! It's my first project with nice special occasion fabric I still can't believe I got over $120 worth of that fabric for only $70! Thank you joann coupons!
Well that's it for me I'm a happy girl who's life is getting together ^^
