Yet another life update! A LOT of shit has happened in the past 2 or 3 weeks so I'm gonna start where I last left off.
Anime Blues Con 8
So Anime Blues went SO well, and I had an amazing time with my BF
, and I wanted to take him with me to this one because...well, frankly, we'll be up to our necks in work and loans until God knows what. And most places don't give you time off just to go spend money on weeaboo shit, yknow? Last convention for a while probably, which is kinda sad but hey, I had a great time, and I'll upload some pics of cosplayers, and my own cosplays!
Death in the Family
The day my BF went back home (Monday after ABC ended) my mom and I went to see the new Jurassic World (absurd, but an entertaining type of absurd). We got back home and mom got a call that my eldest aunt/her oldest sister, had passed away a few hours prior in her sleep. At 69 years of age, she passed on while taking a nap that day. She was very sick, and for the past 4 years she had been suffering so much. I didn't see her that often thanks to college and all, and I feel really terrible for not seeing her sooner before she passed. The funeral was held this past Saturday and I think they were planning on having her cremated.
Now, I'd move onto the next subject, but I need to stop and shit all over my fuck face of a father.
He was never a firm figure in my life, in fact, he's a douche who's probably been with more chicks than I can imagine. Instead of sitting down and spending time with his child, he waits until I'm out on my own to try and get my attention when I have a million other things to do. This mother fucker had the audacity to tell me to forget all about my dead relative to go and hang out with him. Are you fucking serious? How fucking self centered do you have to be to tell me over the phone to drop everything and see you? How much of a FUCKING. PIECE OF SHIT HUMAN-
I'm getting worked up again. Did I mention he didn't even come to my college graduation? And continues to forget my own birthday? I'm 99% sure he still thinks I'm 19 years old. I'm 21 turning 22 next month. Fucking dickhead. I'm done with him. He never helps mom with my schooling, doesn't do anything for me unless in involves me wasting time with him. Time I can use to do other things like work on portfolio items or just do ANYTHING productive. Fuck him, and the horse he came in on. Next subject.
The Art Institute of Nashville, TN (And other Ai Campuses) Closing
Yes, you read that right. The school I just recently graduated from, and have 4 long years of history at, is closing. They announced it this past weekend and...while I am glad me and my BF are pretty much done, I think about all the other students who aren't finished and have to transfer to other schools and/or do online classes. This is a MAJOR clusterfuck for these poor people, and for the faculty as well. Technically, due to this news, classes don't officially start until next week. Now, I only need internship, but as you all know I have YET to hear anything from potential companies that would like my free labor. The school said they had a solution for this, but their first priority is getting everyone else who needs to finish their courses straightened out first. All I can really do now is...wait really. I plan on getting a job at the Petco down the hill from Avalon, but I can't secure a schedule until I know what I'm doing for these last 3 months.
I really hate that the school is closing...they just had their 11th year anniversary and now...man. I'm gonna miss all those familiar faces and the instructors that made impacts on my life, and my art skills...I won't be able to show people where I went to get my degree because it won't be there anymore and...I'm really sad and shocked. I'm not totally surprised cause the school is fucking expensive and is gonna file for bankruptcy so...not a total shock but...had I started school any later and I'd be up a creek too. I'm happy I started school when I did cause....damn.
That's all for now. Need to focus on getting the credits for internship, then getting a job. After that, it's just earn money to take care of myself. I'll be in housing until August, so until then I'll need to work my ass off and do what I can to get noticed and hopefully hired. I was hoping to find a place to live here in Nashville, but that may not be the case...I'm just really nervous and stressed about all the things piling up and I'm really worried that I WILL be a starving artist...
