bleh. Got a car. Need some fixin'. Will update later on it. And how the heck do you mod a game? seriously... i try real hard to look for tutorials or whatever, but i can't seem to find a place that can tell me what to do first. Im downloading UDK. We will see what happens. Im still in a stump right now. Trying to pick myself out of it. Too much that I am too incapable to do. Sigh.

Worst week yet of this summer. Out of the pan and into the fire. I can't wait to get my car and live off campus.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010


Well, I checked out the car. But it wasn't worth the trouble. I look forward to another opportunity!

Getting my financial aid stuff done tomorrow. Whoo! I pray it all works out!

Not sure how I am going to work out my job thing. I was offered another job on campus today. And it seems like a pretty good job. But do I really want to work 6 hours a day for the rest of the summer, or just do 4?

I think just 4.

I still have quite a few books to read, and articles to read, and games to play for the summer, and I want to get to them! Alan Wake is still waiting for me.

Definately going places!

Well, I am working my two jobs right now. Hoping to get a car with the money I saved up at this point. I was not able to get my hours clocked in for it to be distributed to me in time. My account for clocking in is not letting me have the option to put in hours for one of my jobs. Sad. But I know when I do finally get my check, it'll be a big one. 6 hours a week right now. I hope to lower it to 4 hours only after this month. I was overloading to get a good sum for my future car. I will be looking at a car tonight. Hopefully it's the one.

I also have an internship that I am hoping to drop later on today. It hasn't started yet, which is good, but I weighed the earnings for the internship with my 2 jobs, and I am getting more money with the two jobs than I would with the internship. Right now, money is more important. Mostly because I want to get a car, need to pay for florida liscence, fees, AND I want to buy a computer for my new major. So I can work at home if I wanted to. I am a little worried about that, because I don't want to cause inconvenience, but I have to do this. It is not helping me with my goals.

And something else that I have been worried about is my financial aid. I always seem to have a problem each year with something. It worries me alot. I hope to get this little thing over with so that I can not worry, get my loans (hopefully), and continue my education. I should talk to the financial aid office about scholarships..

Lastly, I think I will.. talk about what I am worried about more. Not on here tho. This will most likely be the last time I.. well, or should I put it here. This is my portfolio blog....sorta. Uh, I think I will make a seperate blog for my portfolio. I have decided, this will be my college progress blog. I will journalize my process. Assignments and the like. For those prospective students or curious people who would be interested in seeing and reading about the day in a life of a Ringling Game Art Student. (I feel kinda staged for saying this outright, but I like title-ing my stuff. Current chapter: Summer for a Game Art student. gasp!)

Phew, I said it. It was scary. I am a Ringling Game Art Student now!

Anyways, so I will make a separate blog for my finished stuff and professional updates.

P.s. Today was kinda scary for me. I hope it gets better. And I would like to say that I wouldn't have accomplished this much so soon if it wasn't for my cutie.**

After 3 weeks into Summer of 2010..

I've realized that I do alot of my research from looking at people's blogs. Alot of the things that I am looking for are from upperclassmen or students with classworks that I am interested in seeing.

I can safely say that I am happy where I am now. Or, should I say, happier.

My zest for drawing has returned (or rather mentally returned, cuz i haven't actually drawn anything yet, lol)

I don't feel so...highly expected to make next to godliness work anymore. Not that i'm saying I won't be trying to make masterpieces. 

I felt like an outsider. A feeling imposed by me, onto me, i'm sure. I love to draw, and yet I lost the feeling of excitement when I drew. 

I will spare myself, and you [the reader], my ramble, but the point I will make in this post is..

I have changed my course of study, and will now pursue something that I very much look forward to making my life career!

Uh.. I feel like my excitement about this is not fully realized, but I am about to play Alan Wake. lol. Brb!
