So its been a while since I did a journal entry, many of you probably wonder where I am, the lack of uploads, if I'm still away etc. I'm not usually a person who reveals a lot of my lifestyle and happenings so please forgive me
Where shall I start... I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason so I try not to hold much regrets about life.
Up until October last year 2016 I was indeed at my new college studying animation in Canada but I felt a bit disconnected... disconnected with classes more so since alot of the first year stuff was information and practices I already knew about, which is okay cause I'm all for refining the basics or so I thought. I have taken what would be accelerated course in animation on multiple occasions so I am probably a bit too used to fast learning... well my country on a whole is said to be a bit fast paced when it comes to cramming information in our poor young minds but sorry I'm drifting off topic.
Long story short, the classes felt a bit too slow for me to endure for a full year or two and I started to wonder why I was doing it. Don't get me wrong I didn't feel I was better than the kids there in a haughty way no no no... just imagine that I've actually been working in the animation line of work for about 3 years now, yup it probably would not show much in the for fun animation tests I do since I'm lazy when it comes to my own stuff (gotta change that) but I've been lucky enough to work on local and outsourced projects that I can't speak of due to contract but proud none the less to know I worked on them!
so when you did the work already but go back to school to do the work again after 3 years? XD It didn't feel right... I wanted a better portfolio no lie
especially since I don't see myself at the awesome level I hope for yet, but 3 yeaaaars.... 3 yeeeeeeeears...
of debt and no immediate money.... haaah... Then! round that same time my scholarship was denied though I met all the requirements but was not young enough
(mind you I still within the age requirement) "oh we tend to give the younger ones these things" okay fine I understand but these ppl could not tell me this BEFOREHAND or within the 4 MONTHS I waited on their feedback (I even called and went directly every week before I left)... So...
I came back home
I got back 90% of my money I had paid and said 'frigg it' since I ain't rich, I'm not putting my family in debt.....~ but I still love classical animation and would like to practice it more, the live drawing classes were also Lit!
so I've been back in my little island paradise since, while researching and re-examining my options till I decided I would try for Vanarts a 1 year institution in Vancouver which I got accepted for but at that same very time I received a job offer from an animation company in Nova Scotia. I'm no life expert so I asked advice from all sorts of people which lead me to accept the job offer instead of school. Currently I'm just waiting to get my job permit and will be heading off again into the world. The end, thats my current story will do my best to work hard, earn money, improve myself and travel many places before I die
