Thank you for checking out my entry for the over the last few months--I can't believe I finished it in half a year! Gosh, I should be able to do anything now, right???
My life goals for the rest of the year are as follows:
1) Submit portfolio to various magazines and such.
2) Finish a book--keep to the outline!
3) Submit short stories to various known contests.
If I don't get a foothold in a magazine or other medium to write/draw for after the retail winter season, I'm going to start looking for full-time, salary positions in life. This isn't giving up on any dreams--it is just a reality that I cannot save up for a car and pay off my loans on a minimum wage, part time position at Barnes & Noble (love the books!). I'd still write, just opposite a full-time schedule rather than a part-time.
My aunt keeps reminding me that, with a four year degree, I can apply for manager positions. I'm not too keen on taking on a leadership position. I feel like I don't want to pigeon-hole myself into a position where if I do find a more appropriate job in my field and quit suddenly, they'll have to start looking for another candidate. (Or is that just wishful thinking?)
I promise to upload some of my Oatley Academy assignments soon!! I'm prettying them up for my portfolios. ^_^
