Have a life update! WHA HAH!
It's been totally crazy since literally the day I finished university. Straight after handing in my final project, that evening while celebrating with my friends I got an email from the landlord- they're selling the flat and we had to move! So that got the ball rolling to get our new home- a two up, two down HOUSE! Yep, straight out of university and we go into a (still rented) house! With a garden! And a potting shed! And a real gas hob! (Yeah, that sounds silly, but I've never lived anywhere outside of my mum's house that has had gas). I'm so excited at the prospect of going "up to bed" again, but sad in a lot of ways to let the flat go. I'll miss seeing the cruise ships leave and hearing the football matches coming from St Mary's stadium, but we'll be going into a safer and greener neighbourhood.
It was very stressful and very, very busy, but it's all go ahead and we move in in July. In the meantime, I have started my official jobhunt! That seems to be going well so far- after much deliberation, I'm not going into animation as a career. I have many reasons, mainly because of stability, why not. However, I still want to make it a secondary small time gig- one woman operation! Whoo!
So I might as well tell you guys about my new project- it's a small animated podcast similar in vein to the Ricky Gervais show, talking about PCOS and how I got diagnosed, what it means, and why I think the whole situation, whilst sometimes scary, was quite funny. I want to help other girls who are in a similar situation by looking at it from a fresh new angle. So, look out for character designs and follow me with the project!
Tonight is the end of year showing and straight afterwards is a friend's 21st birthday, so it's going to be a lovely night.
See you all soon!
