In terms of creativity, I'm mostly a do-it-yourselfer. I find myself enjoying the simple pleasures in life whenever possible and I like to make people laugh. Not only am I blessed with what I have, but I tend to have a positive outlook. Art is something I enjoy and I hope to make a living out of it some day. The thought of working for a big corporation and not doing what I wanna do disgusts me, though.

Current Residence: San Jose, CA
Favourite genre of music: Pretty much anything
Favourite photographer: Sure, whatever.
Favourite style of art: comic, surreal, and street art
Operating System: Windows 8
MP3 player of choice: iPod Nano
Skin of choice: My skin is just fine.
Favourite cartoon character: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Personal Quote: Life at best is bittersweet.

Has been different to say the least. I'm OK with the classes I'm taking -- Intro to Photography, Character Rigging, and Modeling I -- but in some cases, I feel like there should be more. In some ways, I still feel like I'm taking general digital arts classes even though my focus is modeling, which complements my rigging class. I'm OK at rigging -- just a few things I need to work on still, but I seem to be improving and am just about caught up in the class. It just seems like, in past semesters, my classes were more varied instead of being computer-based. The most class I took that were computer-based in a semester was two, so I think I prefer have two or just one computer-based class and like a studio-based or writing class or something like that. I'll probably take some sort of English class next semester since I like reading and writing. It is possible to do the day in, day out thing without having it feel so routine? I guess I'd have to ask some people about that. I guess part of it is also my life outside of school, which doesn't feel routine even though it can be. I find that to be an interesting, I guess, dichotomy because I guess true enjoyment of life isn't necessarily found in the routine and doing things just to fulfill a requirement and eventually graduate. I may have to think about this some more because like I said, I like the classes I'm taking, but I don't feel like they're worth writing home about because they can feel routine at times. The monotony I experience in school, this semester in particular, isn't like I've experienced before. I guess I only had a teaspoon of understanding of what monotony was until having a complete experience with it. Looking forward to spring break, though.
