ranting about my school....  
O_O My hair smells BAD! I used two bottles of red hair dye on it this time. It came out better than before, but I'm afraid that I'll never be able to get rid of the streaky effect when I have hair that's this long and somewhat thick. Actually I think my hair's somewhat thin, but it's still a bit too thick to reall luv the hair dye the way that it should.. *shrugs* Oh well.. at least it's pretty red-ish. ^^ My favorite color. ^^

I'm in some crappy effects animation class right at this very moment.. it's the third 3D class that I have this semester, and it sucks royal balls. I SOOOOOOOOO don't want to have it! What is their problem, forcing me into all these 3D classes.. ;_; They say that we can work in groups but I'm pretty sure that nobody would want me in their group. ^^;; I'm just too unmotivated for a class like this. Oh well.. I'll learn the crap that they teach me, and then forget it like I intend to. I'm not getting this degree for the money people, I don't give a shit what is popular and where all the jobs are. I just want to do what I like, even if it's only in my spare time But yet, so far so many of the classes have been total wastes of my time for learning 2D animation. -_- They teach us how to do pencil tests and have us practice the principles over and over and over again.... but they haven't touched and I don't think they'll touch on the way to make finished, clean 2D animations. In the traditional style. I'm talking programs here and how to clean up lines correctly. Teach us what software to use, people! THIS is what I'm paying my school to learn and I'm pretty much sure that I won't learn shit. Do I sound mad? Well, I am. I'm pissing mad and going to shoot someone. Nowhere in my degree does it say that this degree is for 3D animation or that it's geared to 3D animation. *grrrrrrrrrrrrr* I should have gotten out of the degree long ago, but I didn't want to quit on something.. and it didn't really hit on me until three or four semesters ago that they were going to gear these things. It really hit last semester when I realised that the fourth total 2D class that I had was going to be the last one. What bullshit that is. Gimme more! At this point, I only have three semesters left including this one...

*gnaws on this school* I HATE it right now! I'm only staying in here so that I can get my stupid degree and use it to go to Japan! To do something that I really like, which is get away from this hellhole of a school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRAR! I don't hate the teachers.. and a lot of the teachers do really well *hugs Mr. Missal* but GODDAMN! I don't want 3D in my fucking portfolio! MINE! It's mine, mine ALL MINE! MY best work is supposed to go in there, and what I want to represent me! And if the fucking thing is used to get a job, then WHY THE FUCK would I want 3D in it!!!?!?!?!!?! I'd turn down a job in the field no matter what! I'd rather work as a clerk in some crap store than in a 3D field! GOT IT!?!!

Grrrr.r Just ranting. Because I'm pissed. Royal spitting mad pissed. I'm going to hang out with Val at lunch and have tons of fun, because this school just sucks the life out of me and I want to spite it! GRR!
Current Mood: pissed off

I feel your pain. I went to a school that claimed to be an art school where I could learn illustration refinement, find out how to market myself and my artwork, and even learn 2d animation basics, but once I actually got into the school it was nothing but marketing and graphic design, so I had a portfolio full of fake buisness logos, fake brochures, and fake promotion items I had made and I was NOT happy at all >_< I wanted to refine my art techniques, not have almost all of my artistic ability beaten out of me.


Lemme guess, you go either to Art Institute, Collins or DeVry.

The Art Institute of Phoenix.. ^^;;

That rant sounds strangely familiar to me. ^^ *hugs* How sad is it that I almost want to see if there is an lj community dedicated to how much the Art Institutes suck...*just slightly bitter*

Anyhow...I hope your first week back to school is going well, Hi-chan. I miss talking to you! ^^

It's going all right despite the few things that I mentioned. ^^; I saw most of my good school friends tonight in classes and out of classes, so that part was great!! =^__^=

I haven't been on AIM the last few days, since I've been busy working on projects or on my costume. ^^;; I should make a return tomorrow... night, I think! ^^;; I hope? ^^ I miss you too!!!!!

Good luck with your costume, na! ^^ Glad things are going well for you too. I finally got around to making that wallpaper with the picture you did of Manx and her Schu-plushie. I'm not too sure if I like the way it turned out, but if you want to see it: http://www.scatterings.com/lyra/manxwp1024.jpg ^^ That should be the res for your computer, yes?

Yup...thought so! I'm a Collins grad, and both schools have almost the exact same curiculum. >_< The 'art' schools here in PHX are a joke!

Having a rough day I see. Well, I will be waiting downstairs in the lounge when you get out of class! o^___^o Hurry hurry! *rumble rumble* I'm hungry.
