Hmmmm....this semester is starting out on a rocky road.
I get to meet really amazing people because I go to a commuter college. This year I'm going to be losing some good friends and mentors because of college politics and illness. I personally understand how it feels to not be able to go to school because of health problems. I have anxiety attacks that make it hard to travel or go out in the public.
One of my favorite professors is leaving this year due to financial need and not being appreciated enough with the administration. I feel like we're losing a gem in art education. My college is starting forget the needs of the students. One example is a our thesis show only has one spot that can barely fit ten students. I feel really lucky and thankful that I get to have him as my professor one last time.
I'll talk about animation in the next post because it cheers me up.
