I've been anticipating my separation from the military since January. As of October 6, it will be official. It's been a crazy experience, but in the end I'm closer to a goal of mine. I've wanted to do 3D animation since I was 12, and now I'm conveniently in Washington (which has one of the best job markets). So the plan is to get surgery on my shoulder (I currently can't draw for more than an hour), attend classes at Digipen and obtain my BS in Game Art and Animation, and finally get a job at one of the many companies in the area. Really looking forward to this, although it does make me a bit anxious. Wish me luck!
