Hey I'm Grant, from my folders you can see I do animations, granted they're not that great but I'll eventually get better. I'm studying Art Studio at Santa Fe College to receive an Associates to transfer to the University of FL where I plan to get a Bachelors in Digital Animation. I am also in the Army National Guard for the state of Florida as a 91D (Power Generator Mechanic). Mostly I do journal updates to keep you guys in the loop as to what's going on and occasionally I'll submit a doodle drawing out of boredom. My current computer isn't powerful enough to meet the demands of my animation software and I don't have the money to buy a technologically advanced computer so I have to make due with what I got. Although I'm not proud with the lack of art in my portfolio, I am proud of the attempts I've made of trying to put art in my portfolio. So browse my poor excuse of an art profile and hopefully you find something you like.

Hey y'all, as you can see I'm still here unfortunately. I'm still waiting on MEPS to clear me for full duty so I can go through BCT for a third time and go through AIT for a first time. Right now I'm working on writing a letter to my senators so I can hopefully receive aide and get MEPS to do their fucking job and possibly honor the fact I fucking graduated BCT even though I was never given a DD220. Anyhow, if I do make it through AIT and my 30cr.hrs. don't apply I get to go on deployment when I get back. Unless for some reason they feel it wouldn't be worth sending me because when I get back I would have missed every briefing in preparation for the deployment. Aside from my military life my personal life is a bit more depressing. A friend of mine passed last month, he was a neighbor of mine before I moved to Gainesville and even though he was more of a friend to my parents he was a cool guy. He was a World War II veteran of the submarine force, he served in the Pacific aboard the USS Crevalle. He's the one that always brought us to the Submariners Ball each year and because of him we met a lot of great people. He died at the age of 90, but he accomplished everything he wanted to accomplish in life. When I grow old, I want to grow old like he did. At first his death didn't hit me, but at the memorial service once they played Taps, I of course being in uniform saluting, that's when I broke down. He will be missed. On happier note, I cooked Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house since Dad wasn't feeling well that day. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, the hardest part was probably trying to get the giblets out of the cavity of the turkey, other than that preparing it, cooking it, and serving it was fairly simple. Although I did have a little too much fun, I wanted to tie marionette strings to it and play it like a puppet. Yes I am that simple minded leave me alone. So now I'm back home in Gainesville just waiting for Christmas to come around where I might learn to cook a standing rib roast. That's all I've got for now, so I'll talk to y'all later.
