So this is one of the only pics I actually have of me at a desk (sadly not my desk hehe) in my second year of Traditional Animation at CAP University (it was still CAP College back then). I love this pic because I look all relaxed. I think this picture was taken after Gradshow which would explain being all relaxed haha!
Gradshow was a hellish experience (bot of them were actually). We were all such sleep-deprived zombies (hence the post title) by the end of it that none of us were functioning normally haha!
For this post I wanted to give people looking to get into animation school a few tips to avoid the typical pitfalls that most of us fall into. I'm sure things have changed a bit since I was in school, but there are something things that never change hehe...
So those are just a few of my little survival tips. If you are just getting into school, or are in school now, I wish you the best of luck. Most importantly remember that pain is temporary and that if you want it bad enough it will be worth it, I promise!
With that I would like to wrap up this A to Z Challenge, I will likely do one additional post after the actual end date given that everything you have read thus far has been written in advance to keep me from falling behind or missing days.
Thank you so much for reading my posts, I hope you have enjoyed reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
