It's been a really long time since I last made a journal entry and I can't say why, I think I've just been so caught up in the university experience that I just never seemed to have time to sit back and write one. Its been a really eventful year or so since my last entry. I'm now about halfway through the second semester of my second year studying Chemical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. I've met tonnes of new friends here and have loved every minute. I had doubts at first, but I think that was more homesickness than anything else. However, I am going to try some new things for the next few years. Having always been a huge fan of RT and especially their animated shows, I recently felt this kind of inspiration to try and teach myself how to animate. I have a friend who took some time to do this and his stuff is just amazing. Ever since watching the great animation in RvB and RWBY I felt like I wanted to be a part of something like that. As a fan, and I'm sure so many others feel the same. working for RT is a huge dream of mine. But now, I feel really motivated to actually start working at it and making some changes in my life. I'd talked about it before but never really took it further.
RT and AH etc are all amazing people, the content they produce is always hilarious and with new shows and ideas constantly coming theres never any reason to be bored. I have the utmost respect and admiration for all the staff who work day in day out to bring us funny and awesome content. They are truly inspiring, particularly for me the folks who work on RWBY and RvB, as well as other animated shows, the hard work and dedication these folks have to produce such amazing stuff is truly breathtaking and it can be seen so evidently in the final product. While I'm on the topic of RWBY I wanna pay a special tribute the late, great Monty Oum. Monty, you were truly a genius and visionary, you changed the way I looked at anime and even the world, and to see this great vision of yours pan out on screen is truly an honour, you would be proud of the amazing work the RWBY team has done with your creation, they have faithfully carried on telling the story of some of my favourite characters ever and long may they do so. RIP Monty you were a true artist.
Hopefully this updates everyone enough on the direction I'm taking in life at the moment, I love being part of such an amazing community and I look forward to what the future holds for me, and for Rooster Teeth.
Thanks for reading,
(P.S. I'll try to do this more often, hopefully I may be able to share some work on here when I get to that stage, you guys are awesome, stay cool.)
