It seems to have been a little over a year since I last uploaded a deviation. It's been pretty hectic, and I know I've probably said that in every "update" journal. I don't want to let my dA account to completely die. I'll first start with a general update - what I'm up to now, what's new, and any plans I have - and then I'll look into uploading some newer things.
First off, since I did hair update journals for a while, here I am now. Plain Jane, and I'll explain why under the picture.
After leaving Best Buy/Geek Squad, I went to Staples as an Easy Tech/Sales associate. I was there for about six months until starting my current job. Now, I am working with the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office in the county jail as a records clerk. I am one of the people who deals with booking in inmates, doing releases, and taking bonds. It was about a six-month process from applying to actually starting. Next week will be week #3.
Back in January, I started school again for a degree in Administration of Justice. I finished my first semester (five classes total) with a 4.0 GPA and all A's. After I get the degree, I am going to transfer to Embry-Riddle here and take their Biological Forensic Science course! The education, along with being employed with the county/Sheriff's Office, my end goal is to end up as an evidence technician while I am still living here. After experience in that job, whenever we move, I'm going to try for a forensic scientist position in wherever we end up (dream is to work with the LAPD in their forensic lab).
So, that's mostly what I have been up to.
In addition to switching jobs and working schedules, I had a lot of relationship drama occur. It got to the point of needing to get an order of protection. However, everything ended up working out for the best. He is no longer in the picture, nothing bad has happened, and I am with my knight in shining armor. It has been nearly a year now and everything is wonderful still.
I haven't had much time or energy to do much photography-related things. But, I have been needing to do some more/new auto photoshoots of Sega and her new younger sister, Ruto! I am still on my training schedule, but in maybe two or so weeks, I will be on a steady (three 12-hour, one 4-hour shift, 2-hour driving) schedule and will be able to finally get back to doing things I like to do.
But, for now, I'm going to try to upload some older photos that I don't have on here!
Thanks for sticking around!
