I have decided to change my major in school to a general Associates of Science degree with a focus in Liberal Arts. I was going for Graphic Design, but after studying it for a year I am realizing more and more that it is not my passion. Drawing/paiting are my passions, more specifically drawing the human figure and studying it. Unless the CGT dept starts an Illustration degree, I will probably finish school in 07 with my Associates of Science degree. I am not sure where I will go from there. I really do not want to go to UT because, frankly, I do not see their Liberal Arts degree as being worth much. Most degrees with a focus in Studio Art are well known in the art field for being worthless. Though it is not the degree that makes the artist, if I am actually going to make myself work towards a degree and eventually accomplish one, I would actually like it to mean something. I would honestly rather go to ETSU, especially now that they have an illustration program that includes digital art/video game art/and sequential art(comic books). But I will just have to see where God guides.
This semester I am taking an online workshop through cgtalk.com titled "Drawing from the Past", it is a study of anatomy. I will learn a great deal about the skeletal structure and muscular structure of the human figure. I am really excited about it! If this workshop teaches me as well as I hope it does, I may start taking more and more and who knows, maybe I wont even persue a BA. :} It is all up to God and where He takes me.
As for updates with Bradley (eee :}), he is moving from Roamer Support back to customer service. He wont enjoy the position as much, but our hours will stay pretty much teh same as far as working 2nd shift, and within a month he should be able to get weekends off with me. :} So we are really excited about it. My friend, Sarah, just moved into her new place. Her and Sherman bought a single wide out in clinton. It is so pretty! You wouldnt expect a single wide (or any trailor really) to be as beautiful on the inside as it is. They got a 2004 model and it is pretty much brand new. Sarah is so much happier now after moving out of the house they were in before, that was falling appart may I add. Sarah starts her free CNA training at a place called HillCrest in a week. Brad and I are so happy she has refocused on the medicial field. She can work on her counseling on the side while she is a CNA. She is hoping to get her LPN too and they make like $23 an hour! Sarah is definitly a lot happier, praising God for all he has done, and really, for the first time in a long time, feels as though she is back on the right track. Just keep both Sherman and Sarah in your prayers. They are both having to have 2nd jobs right now until finances become more stable. :} I know God will guide em through it.
Well, I guess I have written enough. I will try and update more so when I do updated it isnt so huge. XD
Take care everyone and remember God loves you!!
It has been a long time since I last updated. :} And after this update, it may go for a long time as well. Who knows. Either way I figured I should give an update of what is going on in my life. Work is going good, though a great deal is changing. We are redoing our dept, as far as the physical structure, so we can fit more people into the dept because we are doubling in size. We are not getting Nikon D2X cameras (12 megapixel) instead of the D100s we were using previously. We are also getting all kinds of other new things. It has taken 6 months to finally get the project underway, but it is quite exciting now that it is here. And once we get more people in the debt, the chance for mandatory OT will demish greatly.
