Am I Ready?
My art pack is packed, I'm bringing a singular box with 2" button supplies (for personal buttons), a stack of Katmandu #25 (I'm published! Whee!) and even got one Art Show piece done, mats for 2 more, and one tiny IKEA frame for a fourth (yea, like I'll actually use them all). Once I get my clothes stuffed into the backpack, I can shower and go to sleep.

Am I Ready? Good question. Time for those pre-event jitters to hit, even if they're later than usual.

Seems that while I'm prepping for ZonieCon, all my friends are talking about Conifur (which is next week) and Midwest FurFest (next month). I even have a local friend convincing me to join a small group of Delaware Valley furs who are going to drive to MFF, and I'm more than half tempted on taking him up on it. After all, Wolf will be with me in the lack-of-job department, I can use the small amount of funds that selling my art can bring me, and there are some friends I'd like to see who will be there.

It does seem that I'm spending all my weekends seriously away from home right now... on the other hand, if my plans work out I'll be going to college this March and won't have this much free time for a rather long duration. I'll be lucky just to make my 2 traditional cons... so I might as well enjoy the ride. (After all, I *like* roller-coasters....)

You are going to college in March? Yay! You are one of the most intelligent furs I have ever met(and in this fandom that is saying something). I hope you enjoy your studies..and hope you are able to move soon.

School?

Well I'm hoping to enter a Higher Education Institution this March. There's no guarantee about it as I haven't been accepted and I haven't been approved for any grants or scholarships. I suspect I'll have to get out some loans, which I'd rather not do if at all possible. There's a chance the Institute may look upon my 'displaced worker' status and help me out, and so I'm doing everything I can to improve my chances of that. I may have to figure out a way to draw an impressive print and sell it as a fundraiser on FurBid or something, though.

All I know is that this is the first time I've had a chance to try something different in my life, and my coug'r thinks it may be the best thing for me to do... while I love computers, and while I've been told I'm talented in the computer work I've done up to this point, in the current Tech Market I'm not very marketable (heck, folks with 10x my marketability can't find a job!). I've always loved to cook, and so this maybe the direction that can provide me with a more satisfying career. It can't hurt to try, at least.

Re: School?

I think the cougr has the right idea:) As far as funding goes, you are exactly the type of student that scholarships are designed for: brilliant, but unable to pay costly tuition. I'm sure there is a scholarship out there for you.
