First and foremost, RIP Iwata-san, such a wonderful person who was taking from this world far too early. It was a really sad start to the day.
But the mood did improve because I can officially now say that I have graduated from university. In contrast to the sad news of Iwata's passing it was a wonderful and very up lifting event, there was a band who opened up the event and we got some very nice speeches from the faculty, then it was time to go up, I was second to go up out of the whole uni, I'm so glad that my fellow course mate's name started with AL while mine was AR. I would have bricked myself if I was the first. After that though it was so nice seeing my friends and everyone go up on stage.
It was definitely a nice way to cap off my university experience, especially as I've been in university for farrrr too long ever since starting my journey when I was just 18 going to DMU and just flubbing that up to coming to Westminster and finally making it through at 25. I regret none of it though, it may have taken me a bit longer than most but I feel like a better person coming out of it. Nothing can beat seeing my parents reactions to it though, I almost teared up haha.
So what am I going to do now? Of course I want to work in the animation industry so I'm going to be looking for jobs in that sector, atm I'm focusing on storyboarding so I'm building a portfolio and showreel to help support that.
So with all that said, until the next time I post in 2017!
