|Because you don't have a round number of DA points.|
I guess I have pretty mixed feelings about doing so.... I wasn't enjoying the animation course, it gave me a tone of stress I couldn't cope with, but on the other hand it gave a clear and simple path laid out ahead of me: Do two years of this course followed by two years of uni and then in theory I can go off and work in games.....in theory. But if I couldn't cope with the stress of the first year of college how would I cope with crunch time in the games industry, assuming I could even get a job there? This new course will be easier and less stressful but means I have to make my own path...which is scary.
My current plans are to start up a business over the summer holidays and sell my art as merchandise online, hopefully i can just keep slowly building it as I work in college......I don't quite know if I'm being too optimistic, or maybe too pessimistic with this but I figure I've got to give it a shot. And if it fails hopefully I can get a job at tescos or where ever.
How I wish I could see into the future and see what path would be best for me.
Anyway, it's the summer now and you should be seeing a lot more activity and art from me, maybe even the start of a shop.
