I've decided that I won't post any artwork on the internet, or write a journal for the next 8 months
In that time, I will be Trying my best to improve my drawing skills. I'll be spending almost all of my time drawing and learning to draw, so I won't post much either.
I mean, I'm going all out. I'm going to spend almost every single waking moment in creative thought.

It's news post time. woo.
First off, the news... After applying online, I've got accepted into college! :D
I'm Majoring In Computer Graphics, but I think I can squeeze some drawing and animation classes in there. maybe I'll actually LEARN not to SUCK... as much as i do :\
anyway, this is a very good time for me now and I hope I learn a lot.
onto the next subject: My Computer has been abused for the lase 4 years now... so I bought a new one! It's a Dell Inspiron with a Intel Core i5 processor, 1000gb of hard drive, and 8gb of memory. I've already installed Flash and Photoshop and its STILL working like a snap!
Also, if I recall, I have yet to animate a flash for NG.. well...
1. I'm lazy
2. I have no Ideas
3. I Suck
yea that about sums it up...maybe I'll whip up something
this news post is DONE

First off, I had a meeting with my counselors and mother yesterday. It was about my future and what i could do. The Big thing about the meeting was that I am hired to work on the design of a newsletter for the Jewish Community Center (JCC).
..Well technically, i wasn't "hired". In actuality, It's basically vocational training. You see, I went to this "family service" hoopla because I really screwed up during my high school years and now they want me to have "services" or some shit. They interviewed me, asking me about my likes and dislikes, what i like to do, my strengths and weaknesses etc. Then i left.
Even though this isn't technically a job, I think it's a pretty good start toward one! By September, I'll hopefully be able to get myself a job, so i can finally at long last earn money for the things i want to get! It starts next Tuesday and I'm pretty excited. :D
second things second. I've finally decided on my preliminary college course list. they go as follows:
ART-121: Basic Drawing I
ART-122: Basic Drawing II
ART-131: Painting I
ART-134: Life Drawing
ART-135: Life Drawing II
ART-160: Two Dimensional Design
ART-165: Color: Theory and Practice
CGR-111: Computer Graphics Design I
CGR-112: Computer Graphics Design II
CGR-115: Digital Storytelling
CGR-213: Computer Graphics Design III
CGR-241: Computer Animation I
CGR-242: Computer Animation II
CGR-243: Computer Animation III
CGR-244: Special Effects
CGR-266: Comic Book Design
ENG-221: Creative Writing
Now mind you, these are only courses I want to take. It (of course) doesn't include required courses and prerequisites. As you can see, I want to take a lot of artsy-fartsy and computer classes.
This is a pretty exciting time in my life, and I hope to make the best of it! :D

Copied from my deviantART...
First of all Happy New Year, guys! I hope you had a safe one.
Christmas this year was great. I got all the stuff I wanted and then some. My brothers were happy with the stuff "Santa Clause" got them as well. I also got to visit my relatives on my father's side of the family, which is rare.
|For Christmas I got|
*A 12 Pack of Copic Markers
*Two Packs of Bristol board
*Street Fighter IV
*Pigma Micron Pens
*A USB flash drive
*New Super Mario Bros. Wii
*The Dragon Ball Z Season 1 DVD box set
It would of been nice if i'd also gotten A (LEGIT) copy of Adobe's Production Premium (Student discount, of course), but I Can wait until my birthday...
anyway, on to the next subject
I'm now in the second half of my senior year of High School. I have a lot to think about, because august will begin my first year of college. For College, I'm first going to a local community College known as Camden County College (CCC). After Finishing two years there, I might transfer to a four year school.
Why am i doing this, you ask? Well, it simple: When I in CCC, I'll take the Transfer courses in Art to learn basic techniques in drawing, composition, Painting, perspective, and any other thing I need to know. I will also try to take any graphic design, Computer graphics, General Computer Operation, and Writing classes to tweak my skills as a creative person. After I've graduated, I've learned enough skills, and when i think I'm good enough, I'll send my portfolio to an art college near me (like The University of the Arts in Philadelphia.) So basically I'm using community college as a place to increase my skills, even if by a small margin, enough to be accepted into an art college with animation courses.
Anyway I'll miss my bus see ya <3

I'm writing a post for the sake of writing a post <3
Anyway, I've been uploading a lot of crappy photoshop shit on my dA and calling it "art". This is because I'm teaching myself how to use the program. I have no idea why I busted my ass by uploading it. I might delete them.
Speaking of "art", I've continued to draw from what I see and it has been progressing fairly well. I've actually learned a bit from doing that. I'm still FAR from any other artist on deviantART, or even this site, but one day, I hope to reach that level... :)
My Job hunting is also going pretty well. unfortunately, i'm a little too late for the holiday rush, so i probably can't work at a Best Buy. I'll have to apply to a food service store or restaurant. I really want to save up enough money for a Mac Desktop computer, or maybe some Copic Markers.
And that's about it for this entry. toodaloo!~
PS, I'm also thinking about making a (better than the last one) flash movie for you guys. hold on to you seats!
