I've come up with a future goal for myself.
I really want to go to the San Diego zoo & maybe the wild animal park. But San Diego is very far away, and I think it's one of the most expensive zoos in the country.
So I am hoping to sell my pictures as prints, calendars and other gift items to pay for travel and admission to the zoo. There's no real time period or set date that I'd have in mind since free time is few and far between and if I'm going to go there I may want to get their week pass since I'm pretty sure I am going to need more than one day to visit the zoo and the park and the pass may include sea world as well (I think I went there when I was 7 and I had a miserable time because I was a grumpy brat). So any profits I make from DeviantArt and Redbubble and from purchases made directly from me will be going towards the San Diego travel fund. Oddly enough I have sold 3 prints on this website (1 tiger and 2 of the head tilting owl) So I've made somewhere around $3. I need a bit more than that for any sort of transaction to my paypal so hopefully I can get that to happen.
The photos look very nice framed and hanging up on your walls or sitting on a desk. The apartment I'm in has its walls saturated with prints in most of the rooms.
I'll hopefully become a bit more social and visit more local coffee shops that may exhibit locals works or see what campus can do to display artwork (I think they have a photo program of some sort already).
So if anyone is able to help out with that, that would be amazing! And I'm sure I'll have a blast in San Diego when I go with lots of new pictures to show off (and maybe see a panda, I have not seen a giant panda in real life before).
Got my siren paper back for my German myth class. I got a great grade on it so no re-writing a paper for me! There was mostly just convention errors (a comma here and there) and a few tense errors that I missed when proofing it.
Took my first lecture exam for mammalogy. I think it went very well...I really want my test back now and graded...but I know that takes time. And so far I've done really well on the lab quizzes. Yay!
I want to start doing watercolor painting!
Does anyone know of some really awesome and easy to follow tutorials for the basics of watercolor use? I think I have some paper, brushes and some..er..really old paint from a tube (where you just use a tiny bit and mix it with water, it's sitting in a pallet).
I've always liked water colors as a kid and thought it was the easiest form of painting compared to acrylics and oils. So I really want to shove myself and start painting. I've had a number of attempts at trying to but I keep leaving them unfinished.
