So school life here at Full Sail University is rough. It keeps you busy to the point were it makes getting a job outside of Full Sail look easy. Your always doing something to the point were when you can get away with doing nothing you can't help but DO SOMETHING WORK RELATED! Its funny and crazy. I only lasted this long not really doing much is because I was knocked out often and feeling drained from Benadryl. Now that I'm nearly better I can't help but want to WORK!!! But you start to build up a love/hate of Full Sail overall. Only a Fullsailer will understand, it really is its own world here.
Birthday is coming up, I'll be turning 27 this year. Whoo hoooooo……… I stopped caring at 20. Just another year older. I'm not doing anything special, not going out. Most exciting thing I'll do is probably draw and learn my programs.
Also I've been a Deviant for 8 YEARS!! And thats not counting the days I hopped on without an account to just oodle over art! DA has changed a lot over the years but I still like using it. And everyone I've talked to have been very nice in answering my questions and messaging me back
And its now been 6 months of no visitation from my family or friends back home. This is the longest I've been separated from everyone. If I have to relocate for work for short time slots like this it would be bearable if I got visits or if my boyfriend was with me, but everyone is strapped for cash and the boyfriend is also in college so he can't be with me here. And he's attached to his family and friends too so I wouldn't want to wish this on him either so I understand. BUT he's coming to visit next month! WHEEEEE!!!!! So thats really exciting!
Overall this half of the year has been both fun, very rough, taxing on my health, but also enlightening. I have learned so much in a short two months on 3D modeling (even received encouraging words from my professor) and while I was starting to get very sick at the start of Shading and Lighting I am still very excited to learn about it. I've been growing closer to my sweet boyfriend, missing him very much. I learned I can't put my health on the sidelines, I'm not a machine. And I also learned that I am stubborn. Nothing (besides death) is going to stop me from accomplishing what I want to achieve. I have met some awesome people here, while I am ignored by a few because I'm just a noisy and annoying beginner I don't mind. Its not going to stop me from doing this. Everyone gets tired and irritated and just needs to be left alone.
Anyway thats my update on life here in Sunny (they must mean raining) Florida. 9 months of school, training, and separation. More to learn and to come this year and I'm excited to see where I go with all that I gain.
