Well, this is it. After spending 3 years at Carl D. Perkins, and 2 years at the Big Sandy Community & Technical College, it will soon be all over. If I'm correct, December 8th will be the time that I graduate from Big Sandy. Because I'm graduating in winter, I was told I would be recieving my degree in the mail. Not to mention a letter asking me if I would attend the graduation ceremony in May or not. More likely no, since I can imagine myself being very busy at that point. As for leaving Carl D. Perkins, I'm not too sure but I believe I can leave anytime from the 8th to the 15th. Which means my folks can get me at any point.
I do want to take my time and say it has been an amazing ride preparing myself for the future like this. Over the last couple years, I made good friends with peers that came and left such as Ty, Johnathan, Shaina, etc. I also met my girlfriend Ashley, who I love dearly. I did whatever I could to respect my professors such as Mrs. Lewis. And everything I worked hard on is not in vain like my driver's license for example. At this point, I got my resume, cover letter, and portfolio all finished! I'll be attending a mock interview next tuesday. I have 2 final projects due next week as well for 2 of my classes. Luckily for me, I have illustrator on my laptop. So that means I can work on my projects over the weekend. And I also have a final exam in math, so I'll need to prepare for that. At this point though, everything is set in stone. I know I'll be passing, and that is what makes me happy.
I cannot describe how much I'm going to miss Carl D. Perkins/Big Sandy. So many good memories were made here, and I'll never forget what I've accomplished here. And I cannot wait for the future. I do hope to one day move either inside or around Lexington, so I can apply for any job using my new college degree. But I'll need a car to do that. So I'll be working over in the factory so I can get a car, and save up money to move out. I say it will take from several months to a year in order to accomplish all that, but it will be worth it. I hope you can wait for me a little longer Ashley, because you will not regret it!
This seems out of nowhere to bring up, but I do plan on going back to making more content again at some point in 2019. I do apologise for the very very long hiatus for my animations. But I'm sure everyone knows that it happens when your in college, or even just trying to get your life in order. You need to face reality before you can do what makes you really happy. Don't worry, you'll be seeing Gary Wacky again soon ;).
On the side note, I got a new certificate from the Nocti exam. I passed with a 63%, and I meet standards for Advertising & Design. I will leave a picture of it here.
This may have been the longest update I have ever done, but it is well worth it. Again, I'm happy for everything I've done in the past, and I'm especially happy for the future. Thank you to all that supported me on this journey! :D
