It's Halloween! Unfortunately, I was a grinch this year (wrong holiday, I know), and I did not dress up for work. There were some decent, and some terrifying, costumes that my coworkers pulled off, so at least it was enjoyable to witness. I do have some pretty good costume ideas though for next year, so hopefully I will be able to dress up then. We'll see! I just wanted to write up a quick post to give you all the update that very little has happened. There is not much to update you with, solely because I am still in my lazy phase. I still have a lot of choices to make, and subsequently, many different life paths to prepare for. I feel like 2013 is so far less of a year of change, but more a year of preparations for the craziness that is bound to ensue. I'm still debating trying to get accepted into MCAD next year, but I have some time to work that out. The early acceptance deadline is in January, and school wouldn't start until the fall of 2014, so there is still time. After the busy season at work settles down, I'll be able to figure out whether or not I want to go through with that. That also depends on if I can find a job in the field, and that has not been going spectacularly well. I'm really (not) enjoying the whole "You need 3-5 years of experience to work here, but we won't let you work here to get that experience, because you don't have that experience, so you're shit out of luck" thing. It's less than great. In either case, I have been working on updating my digital portfolio again, and have switched my hosting site to wix.com. I like the appearance of it so far, as it utilizes HTML5 (I believe?), and I think it should help give me a more professional edge than what I am currently using. Now, my great wonderful potentially out-of-reach goal is to move to Chicago. Like, in the city, Chicago. Skyscrapers everywhere right outside your window, Chicago. But that comes with a price, and a very, very hefty one at that. I think in a few years, once my loan debt is diminished, and I am able to get that 3-5 years of experience (!), it would actually be attainable. It's a lofty goal for now, but it's nice to be hopeful and have my sights set on something to work towards. So maybe that was a bit more of an update than I originally thought. It was more of the things that are in my head, and less of physical progress, but it still works for me. Even though things are about to ramp up at work, I'm going to try to make more of an active effort to keep things going and moving forward. I'll be sure to update you all, as things happen. :) And to bid you a final farewell, I have a treat. I give to you, for your viewing pleasure, a photo of my lovely cat, Sprinklemist. I have dressed her up in a too-small bee outfit, well before it was actually Halloween.
She. Looks. GLORIOUS(ly unhappy). Anyway, I hope you guys are all enjoying buttloads of candy and chocolate, and the sugar crash that is sure to plague you tonight. Happy Halloween!
