Hey guys, how's it going?
Been a while, hasn't it?
So... I believe I've been in college for at least a month now. Moved out, that went well, most of my teachers are pretty cool... and as expected, the very moment I want to start drawing is when I get the most work dumped on me (I'm not even kidding, all I've actually managed to get done is a few margin scribbles and a sketch of a joke I saw on Tumblr)
Unfortunately there's a lot of factors I've been dealing with:
1. I'm in the dorms furthest away from everything, so I do a lot of walking (but it's cool, I actually live in very quiet dorms)
2. Chemistry is a PAIN. It doesn't help that my class is stuck with a teacher who teaches at a snail's pace. Recently he "left" and one of my other professors is volunteering until our first test, but unfortunately we may have to go back to learning with the old teacher again
3. Group work. HOLY CRAP, group work. Seriously, can we get some kind of petition against multiple group work assignments in college?? I get that it's supposed to bring us "together," but any outside of class stuff usually goes bad when you have mixed schedules. I kid you not, I wrote 85% of what was supposed to be a "co-author" project with little to no response from my partner... no critique, not much information for our paper, nada. And because he's an athlete and I'm currently working a 12-hour-a-week job, we've barely had any face time together. I also had to work with a group in another class - out of nowhere - to LEAD a lecture on imperial China. Two guys in our group didn't do anything until the actual teaching part came along >.>
4. As far as working, unfortunately I'm quitting my current job. As much as I love being a page and earning for myself, I can't do any schoolwork while I'm away and the transportation getting there is ATROCIOUS. I've got two weeks, and then I'll have to find something on campus or something... I really don't want to have to write home to mom and dad about money (even though they'd do it at a drop of the hat, which they shouldn't have to)
BUT, despite all that, I hope to get settled in completely and be able to start drawing and writing more I've been getting a lot of followers for my online crossover fanfic "A Matter of Time", and I REALLY want to continue that!
Also, I've been DYING for some free reading time. So many books, so little time.
In the meantime, I'm going to keep trucking and see what I can do. I'll have to find a substitution for a scanner though, I don't always do everything on a tablet. Ah well
Best wishes, everybody!
