guuuhhhhhh

well, it took a while, but i finally found a job!...actually, to be precise, a couple!

about a week ago i interviewed with a small, but very well-established company, and they asked me to come on board as a freelance graphic designer! i accepted that position, and yesterday, as a matter of fact, the lady who owns the business has a son who's a CCAD alum actually called me yesterday to tell me that he wants to send me some of his projects for me to work on (separately from what I'm doing for his mom's business)!!!!!!!

and then last friday i actually had an interview at Jo-Ann Fabrics for a position in their custom framing department!!!!! i was soo excited about that job because it would be a steady/weekly paycheck and it wouldn't exactly be a "retail" job where i'd get stuck stacking shelves full of inventory. and plus, Jo-Ann is like a candy store to me, so if i could get a job their maybe i could get some nice employee discounts and such!!!! so this morning i called the lady who i interviewed with and she offered me the job!!!! yay!!!!

so, it's basically nothing grand...but oh my gosh it's something to help pay the bills and get that scary student loan outta my way!

but all this time i haven't been sitting on my butt twiddling my thumbs...i have been doing a lot of art. none of my crazy paper illustrations, but i've been spending a lot...and i mean A LOT of time in my sketchbook. i've also been watching my boyfriend play the new castlevania game, Lords of Shadow...and ohmaigoodness that game is soooooo gorgeous!!! the environments are soo amazing and compelling! and that's actually inspired me to work on my concept environment skills. it's nothing i've been too strong in...but i haven't really tried.

but ohohohohohohohoh my goodness i'm soo realieved right now it's crazy!

Oh Billy Joel...where have you been all my life pal?

it's been a rough week...things today have been equally rough in a couple areas of my life. But finally had a chance to crack open the ol' sketchbook in like a week without being totally exhausted...on top of listening to Billy Joel...how much better can life get...seriously?

oh Piano Man...you touch my heart somehow

Hey...guess what everybody...

IIIIIII GGGGGOOOOOTTTT AAAAAA JJJJJJJEEEEEEOOOOOOOOORRRRRBBBBBB!

Well, I had gotten an interview with a company last week, called Hunter Marketing Inc. so I went in for that interview, and last Monday I got called back in for a second interview/shadow day today. So I went in, and had a pretty good day. The work is rough and easy in some aspects, and unfortunately it doesn't take advantage of my artistic ability, but ohhhh my goodness...it is a job! and a job that isn't Kroger! So I basically wanted to share my happy news today, and give a bit of a shoutout to everyone who I met with and got to talk to today!

phew...*pants heavily*

Well,
the schoolyear is coming to an end...thank goodness...and with that, my graduation draws ever closer...which is S-C-A-R-Y. I'm not ready to be thrown into the real world, but I am SOOO ready to be done with these crazy non-stop assignments!
So, just to get this thing really up and running, here are some things I've been working on over the past couple of weeks!
