So, yesterday was my interview for the Western Art Academy workshop. The workshop is for 3 weeks. It was an interesting and fun interview, and a hectic and stressful morning before it. We got lost several times looking for FedEx Kinko's (to get prints made and bounded of my portfolio to show them), then got lost going to the place of the interview. Miraculously, we got there in the nick of time - about 10 minutes before the interview was scheduled. We enjoyed refreshments (coffee and a Dr. Pepper for me - I wasn't hungry at that time) and chatted with the people there for a bit and they took my picture (I was wearing a fancy outfit!!). Then I went in. I thought they were going to be intimidating, the interviewers, but they seemed relaxed and pretty nice. I shook their hands and gave them my portfolio thing. Mine wasn't in a neat leather portfolio pouch with loose papers inside, so they had to thumb through it rather than spread out all the photos like everyone else's. I thought this was a bad thing, but they said they liked how clean it was set up. But I didn't have a lot of pictures to show. They asked if I had brought any other sketch books with me, but I didn't. So I said, "well, I can draw you something right now, if you'd like." They were suprised and told me to draw the lady who'd shown me the way to the interview room. So I did (I didn't get to finish though because there was a limited amount of time my interview could run for). They told me they liked my enthusiasm and how I didn't flinch when they told me to draw her right then and there. They also told me that it was the first time they'd let anyone do that in an interview. I'm hoping this is a good sign. Afterward, we left and went to Best Buy and then the mall.
I also got a new jacket, cute hair clips, some AWESOME SHADES, and cute hairbands. I had a neat pen that looked like a twig with a ladybug on the end of it, but I have no idea where it ran off to... I haven't even had a chance to use it yet... :'( Hopefully I can find it.
But before we went to the mall and interview, we had to wait 30 minutes for Kinko's to open. So we went across the parking lot to an awesome healthy food store. We ate breakfast there. I had sushi for breakfast. I also found some SUSHI RICE!! And seaweed strips. So guess what I made at my friend's house the next day? ( Sushi AdventureCollapse )
