Reaching Senior Year!!!

            Here and back again, and now arrived at my Senior year!! It gone way too fast, when leaping from little freshman year to the final stop of college. Just coming back has me freaking out, in a good way and bad, but I'm finally settled in officially. As in getting my spot in the studio space with amazing illustrators and my greatest friends. Back when I first toured at Montserrat, I was excited to see all the spaces that seniors got, making it personal and inspiring to work within. The feeling of accomplishment and having the responsibility to a cubical was just special to me, and maybe even other. Or maybe it's the relief to have a nicely, lit, spaced out room to work within.
             So I haven't had all my classes yet, because courses started in the middle of the week. So far I gotta into Painting II and Illustration Thesis, and my liberal class, Addiction. Painting is going to be difficult to manage, not because to the projects but the materials we need to work with. Mainly it's about making our own custom canvases and panels to paint on. Also, we are working with oil paints, hopefully understanding the components of the paint and how they are used property.
            Illustration Thesis is the class that I am looking forwards. The class consist of great illustrators to work with but to help throughout the semester. There is a lot to do, for example, our first assignment is to make up a calendar/ schedule what is going to get done. Pretty much, you have the responsibly or goals of the semester, knowing what needs to get done, when and how. And oh yes, no homework, expect for the homework you assist yourself. So its a lot of work that I want to focus on and strengthen when I leave. Although it does really feel like I do much expect for the painted letters. Right now, I crafted out some characters to continue the book as a narrative. Next is coming up with a few new letters that would make sense in the book.
            Lastly, the class Addiction is a new liberal course that I was taking this semester. The course is a focus on the many types of addiction, as it is a behavioral habit for the individual. Think of it as a psychology course, but looking more on the reinforcements from their surroundings and an person's motivation. I'm a little unsure how it will go, as our first assignments was to make up a one page summary out of a 22 and 33 page article. And it took three day to read through them. I'm hoping after this first day, the teacher will get an impression of what this school is and will reduce the workload, but that depends on the teacher.
              My apologizes for writing this late, I be back on my regular routine and hopefully have better updates. Happy Labor Day to you all!!
