Well summer is officially here, and I know I've been very inactive on deviantArt due to school.
But I recently graduated from high school on Saturday (May 31st). All I can say is it felt like I was going to be stuck in high school forever. Time sure flies before you know it.
It was like yesterday when I realized what I wanted to do with myself, and what school I wanted to go to, etc. I was a sophomore when I was thinking of my aspirations.
Yet, my dream school, (School of Visual Arts), I have decided not to attend there.
I stopped applying there to be honest, I never finished the application. The reason is because I knew I wouldn't get any scholarship money there, and the tuition was just too expensive. Nonetheless, let's not talk about the prices of the dorms too.
But on a good note, I decided to attend somewhere else. The College of Westchester. It's a local college, not to far from me.
I am not ashamed of my decision, as I realized I really don't need to go to a huge art school to become a great artist.
But they gave me a full scholarship, so I literally don't have to pay anything for school. Their tuition is 21,000 per year, so you do the math.
Also, I'm not just doing Animation for my major, but I'm also getting my Bachelor's in Business Administration. The whole program is 3 years, so I will be graduating when I'm 19 going on 20. (Since I'm going into college turning 17.)
I could utilize both of my degrees, or I could just fall back on one if I decide I don't want to become an animator.
Anyways. Enough talk about college, I would like to say I hope I get back to being active this summer.
I haven't been posting as much as I should, but I did get a brand new tablet (Intuos 5 pro) since my old one broke (Intuos 4).
I also got a MacBook Pro for college, so I'm bound to post something later on throughout the month.
I guess that's all for now. I still hope some of my watchers are still active though.
I would really like to hear/speak to some of y'all.
I have a to do list, and a whole set of things I would like to draw/animate. I feel like uploading fan art from a ton of shows I have been watching.
