YOOOOOOOO DeviantArt fam! Damn its been a while since my last journal entry
the year has gone by so quick its crazy, i got so busy at times and life got me juggling everything like
Not sure how many peeps will read this, but here goes, a small chunk of my mind lately:
So I had my final assignment handed in during August. I was so so scared of whether I passed or not, because it was my last class of my whole university postgraduate degree! So if I passed, I graduate and am free! If I failed, I have to do a summer course in january or keep studying until June....and guys you have no idea how sick I am of studying and being told what to do (13 years of school, 5 years of university= 18 years of being judged on your answers, compared to other people, but that's a whooole other thing I'll get into another time hahah).
Which is why I am suuuuuuuuuper
happy to say that I PASSED!!!! (in fact I did way better than I expected, woohoo!)
I am now finally going to try and follow my passion to be an illustrator. I havn't quite decided which field within illustration and art I'd like to take on yet, but for now I'm a freelance artist and loving it
I'm working on commissions and personal projects, and hopefully next year will be a busy year of entering local art competitions and collaborating with other people/organisations. Although I do find what I studied in university interesting, I just don't ever see myself working in the conventional 9-5 office job in front of a computer screen, and unfortunately a lot of my options lead to that within my field of study. However, the knowledge I've gotten from my classes still intrigue me and I would love to be able to use it in combination with my art somehow (I studied Public Health, I've always been interested in global health/social issues).
Well I'm not too sure what is next for me, though I know there are certain things and goals I'd like to reach in the coming years. But I'm not rushing myself. For the first time ever in my life, I am free to think for myself, and choose paths that I want to choose, not what other people or society suggests. And that feels damn good
I'll be sure to post more work up here soon, thanks for reading up to here and hope that you will continue to join me on my journey as the new year come closer
<3 you guys, thanks for the kind comments as always!
