...YOU SHOULD CLAP THOSE LOVELY HANDS OR SHOUT IN EXCITEMENT!GOOD NEWS EVERYBODY! I GOT ACCEPTED INTO AN ART ACADEMY AND WILL SPECIALIZE MORE IN ANIMATION!!!
So a few of you may know that I've been in a living hell for the past few weeks...
There were a lot of things that really made my world feel like hell. I didn't want to put it in that last journal... but hell things have been looking up for me right now!
Never sit and wait your butt off guys... In all this chaos I went and asked for help. A lot of help. It may feel like a shameful thing; but teachers, friends, family, everybody is there to help. Sometimes you have to bury your pride and admit that you can't do it alone.
First off: I had to hand in 4 reports of presentations that were held every Thursday morning, but due to having a lot of stress from my project, my internship search, my home assignment for this school I wanted to go to as soon as I finish this one, making a portfolio that's BIG so I wouldn't sit there and talk about just those 5 pieces that I deemed decent, and learning for Spanish (all tho I completely forgot that one and I might be screwed tomorrow.)
I couldn't do it. Physically and Mentally. I was drained. I had been slaving over this project so MUCH that I forgot to buy my mom and dad some presents and even forgot that it's Christmas next week... I was so on edge that it felt like I could burst any minute...
I told my teacher that I couldn't do it... She asked me to still try and make a report that would be a decent 50% or even a 60%. After explaining that I couldn't remember the faces that belonged to the speakers I wrote about she asked me to review my notebook. Needles to say I do not need to make any more reports. I just have to hand in my notebook, I keep writing everything very detailed and already like a small report that it's useless for me to write it again..HOORAY! So that was gone POOF no longer on my shoulders~
Then there was the fact that I did not have an internship yet... Mostly my own fault. I had a chat with one company, waited for his reply while still looking for new ones, but I mostly was focused on my project. Luckily my teacher was helpful to help me out with one of the companies that I had mailed about a potential internship. I went there and was accepted on the spot... SO now I have a place to go to in February to do this and have more success rate in getting my diploma. Another brick falls off!~
Now the home assignment was a BIG issue.. I had 14 days, but I was so focused on my project that I waited a week... GoddamnitwhyamIsuchanidiot... but eventually after 3 days of drawing ROCKS I got a creative flow for this assignment and went to work. I finished it, could've been more work in it, but it was DONE.
As for the portfolio; teacher helped me select some great works for it. Thanks to all this help I managed to pass the evaluation day!
As for the project.... I missed the deadline, because I had to go to this other school to present my stuff and make some more stuff for them to look at and judge. I talked about it with a teacher just a few days before and he told me to wait till next year to give my animation.
So I somehow got 3 extra weeks now..yay? Now the real work starts tho..
