On to Plan B

Just had an amazing 40 minute conversation with Jim Conrads of Dreamworks animation.  Nothing has been set in stone, there's still one more position that they're looking to fill for the CFX Challange but it looks like I'm probably not going to get it.  Eh, what are you gonna do.  I'm not gonna lie, after three months of hoping it's a little disappointing to hear "probably not", but that just means I gotta keep going on.

He went on to talk to me about graduate school work.  I've always been set on going to graduate school and getting my MFA but he really sort of cemented that course of action in my mind.  I think I'm going to go look at Savannah in July, maybe go to Texas A & M sometime in later, maybe early Fall.  I need to see when you can tour the campus.

I guess that means I'll be going to SIGGRAPH this year.  Sweet.  I'll keep you posted on that bit of news.

Well, I guess my final thought of the post is this:

I've tried not to get too religious on this blog, but I've just gotta say something.  I feel like it's appropriate.  My entire life, I've been a church going person who's gone through church schooling.  It's a huge part of me that I'm very proud of.  I believe in a big God who specializes in the impossible.  Heck, my situation isn't even impossible!  I may have gotten a kind no, but I'm just as hopeful as I was yesterday because I believe the talent and passion that's been placed inside me wasn't put there to go to waste.  When you look at it that way, you have to keep going, other wise you're doing something that just wasn't meant to be done -- we all know what happens when you bury a talent ^^;

I'm working on some hair related stuff.  I'll post my progress as I make it.

Thanks for reading,
