An anon asked to see my portfolio that I submitted to colleges. Aaaaaah… it’s all so old… ;_; I wish I was applying to colleges now, my artwork is much better now… Some sketchbook pages are included ‘cause I was told colleges liked them. If I had the opportunity for an in-person review, I usually brought in the entire sketchbook for the reviewer to look through.

[posted this on my art blog as well; not sure which one the anon will see since the ask went to my main]

Anonymous said: Hello! I read about you being accepted to college (i see how this is late and what have you but still..) Congrats! I hope to go into art in the future as well! <im also interested in montserrat ;)> Any who i was wondering if you would share your portfolio as it would give an idea what colleges are looking for! It would be very helpful! Thank you!

Sure Anon! I’ll post it up soon; I just need to find the files on my computer. x3 You can also usually find info on the school’s websites usually. Also; keep in mind all the schools are different! Some schools liked some of my portfolio pieces while some didn’t. However, they all seemed to like the things I drew from life, so definitely include those- colleges mostly want to see that you have a basic understanding of stuff like that. It shows them that you have the basics down.

I’m rambling a bit; if you want to ask anything more specific feel free to ask Anon! :D

Leave your apartment looking terrible. Walk to the deli and see your usual deli guy’s eyes start to widen at your disheveled appearance. This would’ve horrified you yesterday but today it makes you smile. You’ve decided that everything that made you worry will now make you smile.

Walk with better posture. Order two helpings of dessert. Ask someone to take you to a doctor’s appointment and refuse to feel guilty about it. You would do the same for them so why should you feel like you’re putting anyone out? Stand by your opinion that The Shins are a good band even when you’re friends give you hell over it. This is thrilling. Openly loving The Shins has never felt so liberating.

Tell your father he’s a jerk because he is. Tell your mother that you love her because you do. Don’t tell anyone that you love them if it’s not true, if they don’t deserve it. It’s a privilege to be loved by you. Your emotional slutty days are effectively over.
