[I'm so exhausted right now, so bear with me. But this is important stuff...]
First order of business. The studio that I was interning at has been dissolved. There was a real lack of funds. Like, we were just so broke, we couldn't stay open the way we were. So, the bosses closed it, but will try and call us all back when they're ready in (hopefully) six months. Here's hoping.
Yes, I've been really bumming hard from this. Anxiety attacks and all that. Yup. Been great... *Sigh*
Anyway... Don't wanna talk much more on that at the moment. Too tired. (I got absolutely no sleep last night. Slept maybe for a half hour before getting up at 5.45 this morning. Gods. I think I'm dying...)
Second important thing. I'm not sure how many of you are "professionals" like I'm (supposed) to be. There's a really big, professional commercial artist convention in LA every year. Like, animators like Glen Keane, Andreas Deja, and [maybe] Rebecca Sugar all come to this thing.
Here's the website: www.ctnanimationexpo.com/
My bosses have been there a few times. One of them even had a long conversation with Mr Deja himself!!
It's a pretty big deal. It's also in November. So that is a ways away from now. However!! The ticket prices will go up as it comes closer. The ticket that I want is only $80 right now. I have like three weeks left before that price changes!
So I'd like to ask if ya'll could help me get there! I am probably going to take what's called the MegaBus. Which is a commuter bus that travels all over California for insane prices. Like, from my hometown to San Fran to Burbank is only $40!!!! So actually getting there isn't the problem. I need money for the ticket to the con, and also money for a hotel. I haven't picked one out yet. But I think I might need like $300 for that. [I'm estimating right now! Too tired!]
I'll figure out food later. Help me, please??
I really want to go to this thing!
Yes, I'll probably cry a little cause I won't be able to go to Disneyland as well. But meh... I'll try not to dwell on it too much.
Commissions are waaay way open!!
Even if you can't, spread the word like wildfire!?
Now I'm gonna try and not fall asleep in class. Ugh...
