Been yearly another year since my last journal entry. Lots of things are changing, figured I'd update for the sake of yall that are still reading.
Art: Drawing occasionally, still working on hands and general anatomy. My big issue is still progressing from anime to realism, and since I haven't been able to put a lot of time into drawing it's taking longer than normal.
Work: Working this summer, am averaging 26 hrs/wk, but it's not too bad since I am starting a second job at a biology research center in a week. 26 hrs/wk at existing job plus 20 hrs/wk at new job.... makes for a busy me!
Personal: One of my closest friends (er) wanted to FWB me. I declined, kinda sad about having to adult so soon after May.
The big update: I'm moving for college in August. I was able to graduate from the community college since I had so many dual-enrollment credits from high-school electives, so now I have both a high-school diploma and a college diploma. Graduated CC before I graduated HS, in fact . Anyway, I'm moving to a four-year in August, and I am very VERY excited. There's not many people from my city going to that particular college, but there are bunches when you expand to about an hour's drive from my house! I am now OFFICIALLY an engineering major and pre-med. (No typos - you heard that right.) I'm taking eight classes in the fall, and although my classes start at 8am every day, I am very very excited to move to new things in life. For the curious:
Chemistry 115, chemistry recitation, chemistry lab, retaking calculus 1 (cal 1 honors conflicted with a mandatory class), calculus in engineering, english 101, engineering 1, and engineering drafting/CAD.
What does all this mean for yall? I am going to be very very busy soon, but I don't know how that will affect my presence on here. (Not like I've had one recently anyway.) However I would really appreciate it if yall sent happy thoughts my way: it's going to be really stressful since I have to 'reinvent' myself because I am coming from podunk country/town hybrid to a metropolis twenty times the size of my hometown, and I have to 'get in good' (make social connections) with people to be accepted into med school, and I really really really wanna go to med school. (The south is a weird place.)
Anywho. Yall have a good evening, and stay cool in this heat.
PS: Got my EMT-B certification, studying for NREMT-B. Wish me luck!!
