It has been a while since I have written anything, so yes I am doing this entry to share with everyone what has happened in the past.. 3-4 months I think.
I guess I'll start at the beginning, of what happened right before the summer of 2011;

At the time I was still a first year student, my grades were all perfect and I had no trouble at all. People thought I lived at school because I showed up whenever they were open and went home whenever they closed, I spend a lot of time there because my rig was not up to par with the quality we had to deliver; sure I could model but I couldn't even render out an .mp4 without running out of memory.
I spend too much time at school working on homework assignments etc. because as part of our bachelor studies we have what we call a mid-year assessment and an end-year assessment. Basically you show a board of teachers what you made during your classes and we had strict rules as to how many hours we had to put in personal assignments which we call ISA-projects; we needed 6 ISA points and each point represented 36 hours of work, 3 at the mid-year and another 3 at the end-year. I had put so much work into my studies that I had only gained 1,5 points by the mid-year and was still struggling in terms of what they expected from me when it came to making your own projects. This because they could not be anything, no you had to learn something from it and they had to approve your learning skill. And so it came to be that I had to redo ISA projects during summer, I wasn't kicked off like some other students but had a 2nd chance. I had to redo 1,5 points and then I would pass the first year, if I failed then I would be kicked off from school. Is it strict? I don't think so, this is what a bachelor degree is and many people drop off at the first year (and aren't allowed to retake a class at the school for at least 3 years), in our first year we started with 28 people or so, by the end of summer we were left with 15 or so.

So during summer I worked my but off, but not before getting some great news from taxes. I received about 1K in euro's as overpaid taxes and the first thing I did was build myself a new computer with the help of a good friend. After that I continued doing my summer job at a nursing home cleaning houses of old people and ridding through my home town cleaning people's mansions. Whenever I got home (I worked from 8 to 5 Monday to Friday, except for Wednesday) I would nap for an hour and then get up to work on those projects, I would also work each free day I had because it was very important to me. A classmate of mine helped me decide what was best to make and so I made an animation and 2 models which turned out very good.

By the end of August I showed the board what I had made, my mentor was included and they approved it right away. Int he meantime I found what I really like doing; modelling and designing.
So I had passed and received my propaedeutics degree and joined many of my new found friends in the 2nd year.

I'll tell the rest another time =) I'm rather flu infected at the moment, next time I will also upload new Sanne photo's
