I know it's been a really long time since I've written a journal, these past two months have been really busy for me. I feel so disconnected from you guys!
Here are a couple of 'important' things:
1. If you sent me a comment in the last week or so and did not receive a response, please note me! I have been away from my computer and responding to comment with my iPod touch. I only now just realized the comments aren't being sent, and then your comments are being deleted from my message center, so I have no way of knowing whose I have replied to. I'm sorry!
2. If you don't already know, I upload a LOT more photos onto my Flickr account.
I upload almost all the photos I take onto my Flickr account, and save a select few for dA. If you want to see more work from me, make sure to make me a contact on Flickr or check back periodically. Right now I have photos from an Olympic ceremony we had a couple days ago, as well as almost all of my Marineland photos.
3. If you have any logo designs you haven't submitted, please note me them at your earliest convenience! I will be making a final decision soon, because I want to get some labels printed so I can start sewing the, in.
4. I have a fan page for my business, 'Under The Seam' on Facebook now!
You can become a fan (or 'like' it) if you like.
I am currently working on a few commissions, as well as designing two new plushes. If you guys have any ideas for hats or stuffed toys, send them my way!
If you guys are interested in the photography job that I was hired for, you can read about it in this blog post.
It's very short and has some pictures.
It was awesome!
In the month of May I did that photography job, and before that I spent some time with =Chaotica-I
(you may have noticed by the photos!). We went to Marineland together on opening day, which I had never done, and we had an awesome time together. I got so many photos of the belugas and I'm much better at IDing them this year. I also worked some hours at a local gallery, but the place has been closed since June and I no longer have that job.
In June I was awarded the Technology Award at my school which was wonderful. I was nominated by my tech teacher (who is one of the sweetest teachers ever). I'm all finished high school forever now and I'll be off to college in September. It was sad saying goodbye to my teachers, the two of them were really wonderful this year and very understanding to everything that went on. They were both very supportive when I had to take the week off to work, and with all my other issues. Hopefully my exams went well! I also just did my WRIT test for college, which is a test where they evaluate your level of writing. I think I did well in that. I also paid my first semester of college (it is cheaper if you pay all at once rather than in installments) so it's official! Hehe. Now I just have to wait to see what kind of textbook costs I have, and I also need to buy a tripod.
Plans for the future include camping next week for the entire week with my family while our roof is being fixed/redone. After that I have some trip plans that I am VERY excited for which I'll be sure to write more about later (you can read Dave's journal
if you want to know right now!
I think that's all I planned on covering.
Have a good weekend everybody!
