Summary Part I

So, for reasons both my own and otherwise, I have decided to move on to a post-college, real life blog. Many things change after graduating college for the first time, and I thought that those changes deserved a new start.

Also, for the record, you might want to know that I'm an artist and a writer who is addicted to every single thing she tries... well, most everything.

My undergrad blog, if you're interested, is below:

Also, this blog has a point, I promise. But first, I must share a few things and catch you up.

So where was I...? Oh, right. Changes. I guess I should tell you what those are, or at least, the changes I have gone through personally.

Well, let's start with what I've been doing since graduation.

Oh, wait. You probably want to know about graduation. I probably shouldn't... nah, I'm proud of my education. Ok. You've twisted my arm. I'll bite.

For the past four years, from the fall of 2009 through the spring of last year, I have attended Savannah College of Art and Design for Sequential Art with double minors in Business and Storyboarding. I rather loved what I was doing and had (and still have) high hopes for the future.

Oh, and then I got engaged to the love of my life (timing expertly chosen to thwart any advance of a French boy... which is, for the record, a stereotype--the French boy ruling all romance-- it could be true, but I should be ashamed of myself for stereotyping). We are happy and in love.

I even had an Apprenticeship set up for the summer...and in Paris, no less.

The company, Full FX Studio, was a French company of journalists and designers with a magazine (one of many that they worked on) reporting on American comics.

They took a big chance on me to not screw up their way of being and to learn and help put their magazines together (and basically do whatever they needed for help). I thank them so many times for putting up with my struggling french language, and, thankfully, they stayed patient with me. I learned so much being there,

 and from Push It Up too.

Those were the best changes. Ones that I enjoyed. But then things got tough.

Stay tuned for Part II, where you will find out the second part of changes AND the POINT of this blog.
