Site Updates

3 new 100×100 Icons: Model Themed
2 new affiliates: Sphynxx and UKDevils

First I’ll start with site updates! I’ve got 2 wonderful new affiliates with me and have added up 3 100×100 icons. I know it’s not much, but with what you’ll read below you’ll know why I haven’t gotten much up quiet yet… xD I also have added hosting back up, but I’m keeping it simple and basic this time. Feel free to check it out here if you’re interested in a subdomain or domain with me!

These last few days have been one of the most fun, but stressful, days of the year. Last year I took on the job of Social Orientation Counselor for my school and was accepted to be one again this year. Basically I’m part of a large group of students who take care of freshman and transfer students when they register for classes and during their orientation week in the Fall. I loved being one last year and thought it would be a lot of fun to continue it!

This week marked the first of my registration day adventures. I mingled with students and their parents, answered questions, gave campus tours and even manned the table for our honors program. (My boss, the director of the program, was away on an honors trip so she left me in charge of it. ><) I met a lot of people who were interested in the program and even got a few people to join!

However, with this comes the horrible thing of getting up at 6 in the morning and, most likely, going to bed around midnight each night. It’s a ton of work, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. At least now I have time off until June when I’ll be coming back up to help out with 3 more days.

Another awesome thing about it is that one of my best friends from high school is transferring up here! He hasn’t been fond of where he had to go for his first 2 years so he’s switching to where myself and my boyfriend are because he’s been really impressed with how the administration run the school and what programs we have. I can’t wait to show him around in June!

3D Modeling

04-11-14

Site Updates

2 new Photoshop Actions: Desaturated and Plum Berry
1 new affiliate: Blue Hearts

So my current class load includes 3D modeling, something I’ve only fooled around with on my own free time. At first I was so scared of doing anything on the program because I had no idea what I was doing and I felt like I wasn’t going to make anything good. Well, after just experimenting, I’ve pretty much proven myself wrong a number of times.

My friend and I are working together on our final project. (Our teacher said if one of us fails we both fail, which we were fine with. We trusted each other’s skills. xD) In the end, we decided to create our own Pokemon trainer OCs, their main Pokemon and a stadium! So far I have the body finished and my friend has the head and her Pokemon finished. Overall I’m super proud of how it’s coming out.

Even better news is that our school’s library is finally finished in renovations! We’ve waited a year and a half for this thing to be finished, but I’m really happy with how it turned out… so I guess the wait was ok. The inside is so clean and modern now it’s insane! Lots of awesome colors, too. ;D

Site-wise I’ve got one new affiliate and 2 new actions put up. Not much, but it’s something for a day of work! xD I’ve gotten a layout request as well so I may try to put some tumblr/web layouts up. Just need to get some inspiration first on themes and whatnot. I think just sitting in this library is helping, though!
