Hello all. I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is I graduated with my Bachelors in Art and don't have to go to school anymore. The bad news is that since I am no longer a student my current job has to let me go since it is a student only position. They are being nice enough to allow me to work through the spring semester to give me a chance to find another job, but once April hits they will not be able to hold on to me any longer. With that said I have been searching very hard for a suitable job that will allow me time to work on my own art on the side. Trouble is it is very difficult to find anywhere that is hiring at the moment. I have had interviews with a few places so far, but I haven't had any luck getting those positions. There is always someone better or more suitable for the job.
I will do my best to keep looking and hopefully something comes up. Until then I'm not sure how much time I have to do art, let alone fund supplies, which is really depressing since that is the one thing I would really like to do. So to my commissioners I apologize for any delays my job search causes to your commissions. I will get them done and I am eternally grateful for your patience.
As it stands here is the progress for my commissions so far:
After these three commissions are finished I won't be taking anymore for a while. At least until I find work so I can keep going. It's sad, but I guess that's life. If any of you are religious out there any prayers on my behalf would be incredibly appreciated.
(Update) So on top of all this craziness apparently we're also moving?
My parents have been discussing it for over a year now and my siblings and I have so far had the attitude of, "Yeah, sure. Like that is ever going to happen."
Guess the joke was on us, because today we have a trailer in our driveway and the command to pack everything in boxes so we can sell the house. What is going on?
Has reality finally snapped?
So, uh, what do I do now? Do I find a job after I move? Or do I get a job so I don't have to move? I suppose this is part of what becoming an adult is all about, but does everything really have to slam down at the same time?
Anyone else have some experience with this or some advice on how to handle the situation? Because I'm a bit at a loss here. My mental capacities are pretty shot at the moment.
