Another anniversary of me first posting my drawings on the internet comes and goes. I started out as a middleschooler and now I'm a graduate student. Holy cow!
And all those times where I said "maybe I'll be less busy next year to do more art..." How foolish and naïve I was! But you know what? I'm going to make that same mistake again!
If all goes according to plan, this is my last year of institutionalized education. No school for the first time in 19 years! From there, my efforts in the job search will dictate whether or not I have time to pursue art as a hobby in the foreseeable future. With a graduate level education in engineering, I could probably do a lot of things... I'd be qualified for most research positions, but to be honest I think the thing I learned most from graduate school is how much I'm over being in academia. Some people probably love the collegiate life, but I'm kinda over it now lol. To be frank, I just want a job I don't hate so that I can do art for fun without having to worry about living expenses. Real life is scary huh!
But from now until May, yes, I will be very busy! Graduate theses won't write themselves!
