Well I got accepted to the college I wanted!
I've been interested in going to Columbus College of Art and Design since my freshman year in highschool so I'm stoked as hell. I wasn't super happy with the work I submitted for my evidence of creativity, but i'm certaintly not complaining that I was accepted. My only problem is I'm a solid 724 miles away from my college of choice, so I may not get to visit during accepted students day, or I may not be going to Pico Day. Or neither quite honestly. Money's a bit tight at the moment, and I can't drive. It really sucks if I don't end up going to Pico Day moreso than accepted students day, I feel like i'm missing my only chance to meet my other family, and many artists I've looked up to for the entirety of my animation career. I'm hoping to get connected with the other students majoring in animation or illustration so even if I can't visit before the school year I won't be a complete stranger.
Fuck, I should have started this post with "Dear Diary."
Peace for now Newgrounds,

I know I haven't been incredibly active lately and for those of you who do follow me I'd like to just give my explanation. I've really been trying to make some nice shorts to put on my profile but I hit a bit of a road block. My laptop which i've used for the past 5 years is reaching it's last legs, honestly it could go any day now. That being said it's impossible for me to run flash or toonboom without turning it into a brick. It's sad to see it struggling like this, I've already made an appointment to euthenize it, nothing should live through this much pain so I think i'm doing the right thing.
Until then I'm just gonna be filling up sketch books for my portfolio, gotta build that shit up for college applications. Also i'm in the process of getting a regular job so I can help my parents buy a reliable computer that can render 3D.
If anyone else is looking for a new computer there's this website called GainSaver which helps you build a computer with the parts you want and cut costs where you can.
Looking forward to when I can get back into animation, but this will be a great chance for me to get better at poses and human form.
