I went to turn in my portfolio the other day, and I met with my councelour Christian to go over it, and he critiqued me. I'm glad they're honest, they have to be right? I knew I was really lacking in the sketches department for my portfolio, and thats the only thing stopping me from getting into the school that I want to go to. I'm going to try and create six new sketches this time, but they are going to demonstrate that I am able to draw from observation, rather than just draw a bunch of random things (which is what I pretty much did.) I'm glad my councelour was able to help, and get me tips. I was so nervous going there! It was a like a fresh of breath air though, something much needed. I am READY to go to school, more than ever before. I am glad that he said my graphics design portion of the portfolio was strong, I pretty much knew thats what I didn't have to worry about anyways.
I'm also attending workshops every Saturday there to get my drawing ability up. He also said this will look good on my part for when they go over my portfolio again. God, I hope so... I'm going to be so sad if I don't get in, I'm trying to be very positive, and be optimistic about it, but with my birthday coming up, Christmas, and everything it's going to be a very stressful December, and all I want to do is spend time with someone this year on New Years, and relax. I don't think I'll be doing much of that.
Speaking about being with someone, I've been talking to someone for over the past week now, and I'm not really sure where it's going, since I feel like I'm very rusty from not even being able to talk to someone for such a long time, but so far everything has been going great. Who knows if I'm ready, but as far as I'm concerned, I'm ready to take a few chances this time.
One last thing, I'm starting up my own website, http://iamjaybot.net
, and it's not completely finished, the layout that I've put up now is just a mockup and not a final product. I plan on fully launching late January, when hopefully things have died down for me! I plan on blogging over there in the future, just a heads up if anyone really reads this anyways.
