I just reliazed I'm about three months short of having updated in a year. There's quite a lot that has happened in what doesn't seem like a long period of time.
I guess I'll try to start in order of imporatance: School:
I'm not going to that one college I posted about last time. Last time I updated, I said I'd be going in January but that couldn't happen cause I couldn't get a hold of my highschool transcripts in time. Registrar was practically unreachable.
So then a few weeks later I had everything worked out and then up until a few weeks ago, I had everything all sorted out and I was desperately waiting to go but I came to find out that even with a scholarship
and financial aid
it was gonna cost me a lot more than would be worth it (I'd have to pay like $450 a month throughout the year and right now I'm lucky to be making that much in a month while working with no school interference so imagine that
). And as of right now I can't go to community college cause of transportation issues so that shall be on hold for a bit. I'm just glad I at least know what I'd like to study now. Work:
Last update was about my two seasonal jobs, Old Navy kept me past the season, but Michaels did not. Which I was okay with cause even though I loved the art supplies and everything, Old Navy is an overall better job. However! I recently got a 2nd job again, now at Dollar Tree. Not the most glamorous of jobs, and I prefer Old Navy to it any day, but it'll definitely help me save up some money again. Cosplay:
I finally got to go to my first con and do my first cosplay!
I did Blink from X-Men, her movie look. Unortunately I didn't get very many pictures, at least not ones I thought were worthy enough of submission to DA but my favorite picture from that day was this one, and I explain why in that post :3 I'm actually gonna update it and try to make her costume from scratch myself and actually add on her jacket embellishments.
I finally learned my lesson in procrastination since I've discovered that cosplay and procrastination will not work out very well. But I definitely felt that cosplaying is something I'd wanna do for a long time and I'm super excited to go to more cons.
Other Stuff: I do have a lot of big plans for myself coming up, I still want to open a shop someday. My goal is to have one before next Christmas, so in about a year I want to work on my art more, so that when I do get to go to school, I have some pretty impressive things to show off. I plan on making plushies soon, gonna be buying a sewing machine this week
hopefully so I'll get to work on Blink's jacket and maybe even my next cosplay. I also still plan on starting making YT vids, but I gotta see when I can get around to it. I have so many projects I want to do and goals I wanna complete and honestly I have never felt more motivated than I have recently. I also just feel pretty happy overall.
Oh and on that note, my art bloghas a new URL. The cause for the change is cause I figured it'd be my YT name and then my cosplay name as well. It'd just be easy to make my art be all in one spot.
TL;DR: Not gonna be going to school for a while, got a 2nd job again, started cosplaying and loved it, got big plans coming up, and I'm determined and pretty happy right now.
