Hey guys. I haven't updated in forever, but I thought I would say how I am doing. Last year I studied abroad in Japan and came back to America and tried to get an internship or even a small job while living at home. I wanted to save money before going and getting a "real job." But that didn't go as planned. I couldn't find any place that would hire me in my hometown. I got a job at Jumpstart thanks to a friend, however. It's a video game company that makes educational games. I been learning how to make GUI and have made some friends. Everyone who works at the company are really nice and are fun people to be around. While I am not the best at GUI or especially passionate about creating GUI (illustration is my love), I have learned some things, have a stable income, and have had the opportunity to draw some items for Neopets since Jumpstart acquired Neopets! Which is the fun part! I only get to do it occasionally for now but I am going to see how things go. So far I have drawn over 20 items. I saw some of them on the website and it was pretty cool.
In a week I am going to Japan for 3 weeks for a vacation and to visit my boyfriend. I am very excited about seeing him and being there. Can't wait to eat all the yummy food like nabe and teriyaki and pizza man, buy all the cute things, take purikura photos, play the arcade games and win toys, and have heated toilets that make a flushing sound so no one can hear your business!
