8D After 5 years of college, as of a very long and somewhat disorganized ceremony this morning, I'm finally a graduate! I now have a Bachelor's degree in Geographic Information Science, and I cannot wait to get out into the "real" world with it. I managed to land an internship in my field that I am super excited for, and which starts Monday morning haha. Jumping right in! C:
Ahhh after so much stress and work and so many ups and downs with being in school forever it's a little surreal to think I don't have to go back. But it's definitely good. There's for sure aspects that I'm going to miss; a lot of my friends I've made while here are from various different places, but most of them far away. But at least there's social media for that. And no more homework!!! It's going to be different, getting paid to work on things as opposed to paying/going into debt to have to work on things :'D
Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me throughout my intermittent attempts to be active online! :'D School of course did the thing it's prone to doing and took up a lot of time and energy. Especially in the last couple of semesters. Over the most recent fall semester I think I had some kind of anxiety issue with everything that was going on, and during this one I finally realized what was up and got help for it. Which was a great change. Unfortunately the prescription for that has insomnia as a common side effect, so that has presented a different issue hahaa.... I haven't got a lot done outside of school work in a while. I'll see about dealing with that now that I'm not so rushed, maybe switch medicines or go off taking it or something (it's not a super strong prescription in any case, thankfully). So I apologize for the lack of activity around here, but hopefully I'll be able to pick back up after a while.
But you guys' comments and feedback and just general interest have always been really encouraging, so thank you sincerely c:
I'm going to focus on my job/internship starting off (there's going to be a lot to learn and get used to!) but I plan to ease back into doing more art and being active with posting and replying. I have a massive backlog of things I've done and never posted for whatever reason (usually forgetting to, honestly), from woodcarving to bookbinding to sewing to sculpture and of course my usual drawings! Looking forward to having free time to organize and post some of that! And getting back to commenting on things! I definitely fell behind on that during college.
Feels good to be a graduate! C: I'll be posting some art soon (working on putting together a sketchdump now) and replying to feedback as I can~ Congratulations to any other graduates out there, and good luck to anyone still in school! Thanks for reading! ^^
