Half a year later, it’s time for an update of my journal!
Also… I’ve been tagged by Kirschpraline, but before the meme, here's 2016 so far:
I told you about art school in my last journal. Guess what, I wasn’t accepted. Badum. It’s said that happens to most applicants and it was just one try at one uni but it sure was discouraging. I’ll try again, probably.
Afterwards I decided to concentrate on my job training and its final exam before getting crazy with art schools again. This is now done. The last weeks have been very stressful, but now I may call myself a media designer (specialized in print media). Yays!
Though I really liked my job at the publishing house… I won’t stay in this town. It’s been three rather lonely years and if it wasn’t for the degree I would have quit last year.
My plans aren’t utterly settled yet but… I’ll be moving to the town where my boyfriend and some friends live. There I’ll start studying Publishing Technology – not so artsy and creative but I’m still looking forward to it. I’m still figuring out if this might be even better than art school (in a way) or if it’ll be temporary only. It's all quite uncertain and exciting, too.
So. Now you're informed, let's move on to the Get-to-know-me-Meme... tagged by Kirschpraline.
Rules: Tag 8 people you want to know better! (Nah, no tagging today, sorry.)
Name: Doreen. I think it means “gift of God” and I just found out that the Celtic meaning is “moody” which fits me better. My parents had a hard time choosing my name and this was simply the first one ok for both of them.
Star sign: Pisces.
Average hours of sleep: 8 is my goal, but I always stay up too late and get about 7:30. I need a lot of sleep.
Lucky number: 3, 7, 42.
Last thing I googled: Pisces, was not sure about the spelling.
Favorite fictional character: Ugh... there are so many. But if I'll ever have children I wish they could be like Dipper and Mabel Pines.
What are you wearing now?: Blue skirt, black shirt with paper planes on it, underwear, no socks.
When did you start this account?: January 13th, 2010. Wow. What's my age again?
Amount of watchers: 468
What do you post?: Mostly traditional drawings and paintings of animals, fantasy things and women with fancy hair.
Do you run any more blogs?: My tumblr.
Do you get a lot of comments?: Define "a lot". But yes, dA is the place where I get the most feedback. Thank you!
Why did you choose this username?: Beareen is a mix of bear and Doreen. I don’t know how it happened but I became a little obsessed with bears. Aaand I wanted a name I could use on most platforms without ugly variations (like adding numbers).
That's it for now. Take care!
