Journal Entry: Sat Oct 18, 2014, 8:08 AM
Personal journal, feel free to ignore!
So, either I'm the type of person who doesn't stay at a job for long, or there really is something wrong with my job, CUZ MANG..I DON'TS LIKE IT. The work is easy enough, but the people...ugh, the people are unbearable.... And I know what you're thinking, because I've been told it thousands of times by people who are older than me.
"BUT LEMMIIIIIING, IT DOEN'T MATTER WHAT JOB YOU HAVE, YOU'LL ALWAYS HAVE TO DEAL WITH STUPID/ANNOYING/RUDE POEPLE"
I know that, but I won't have to deal with those particular people >: D
Anyways, because I haven't been a fan of my job lately, I finally got up the nerve to contact the school divisions career councilor....an entire year and almost a half after I graduated high school....Yeah. But anyways, despite me being ridiculously slow on this whole life thing, I've figured out that I have the option to take a couple of university classes at a little local college that's basically the tiny sister school to a big university in the city. There are two classes I want to take, one being on every second Saturday, the other being on Thursday afternoons every week. Unfortunately, I'm a month too late to even try to get into those classes, so I'll have to wait until next fall... The good news is though that there's a university about nine hours from here that will accept those classes as credit transfers, and if I took a third class at the college then student loans would kick in. The only thing is that I'm worried that would count as my "first year" of university...
The university I want to end up going to is the University of Lethbridge, since they offer this cool degree in Fine Arts called "New Media". It teaches you everything from writing scripts to storyboarding to animating to game design to the importance of music. Not to mention they have a 24 HOUR ACCESS COMPUTER LAB ALL WITH WACOM TABLETS. Lethbridge is all around a cool little place, being about half the size of the city I usually head to get to a Walmart and bigger stores. It has so many cute little parks, including a Japenese garden and a park called APERTURE PARK, which I got a kick out of. Not to mention its only a few hours from Banff and Calgary! I really want to move to Lethbridge, but it IS in Alberta, which is one province over from me.
So after a ridiculous amount of time wasted, I have a plan. A REAL ONE, I SWEAR.
I'm going to continue working at my job until next fall when I can take those university classes close to home. I'll be saving my money from now on so that I can hopefully pay for those classes (they're like $550 each). Then I'm either going to have to work something out with my workplace (The one class on Thursday starts half way through my shift, and I work ten hour days), or I'm going to have to quit my job and find one that's more flexible but pays less. Then, the next fall after, I'm going to hopefully transfer to the U of Lethbridge and be able to go live there with my boyfriend! It's scary to think about, and part of me wishes that I could just go straight to Lethbridge next fall instead of waiting two years, but I had a conversation with my dad about it, and I think it's just a better option to stay here for two more years...
I'm really excited though!
But the point of this journal is I'm probably going to try and start focusing on developing my skills for the next while, and then I hope to open commissions and get a little bit of extra money for savings. Even thought the last few times I've opened cash commissions, I haven't gotten any bites...BUT ALAS, it's worth a try.
