First off, to those wondering, no, I haven't stopped designing. It's just that class has already started, and I've been a bit busy. We're only a week in and they're bombarding us with a whole lot of things to do and study.
But first, a little thanks is in order:
To those who still remember, I actually started the shirts thing because I lost my Medical school scholarship. My family and I were in a tight bind on where to find enough money for it. If you guys will remember, my tuition fee per semester is roughly $2500. It's around $500 per month. Not exactly cheap.
I'm happy to report that I've successfully enrolled myself around two weeks ago, so I'm continuing school successfully! With a some hard work from my parents' part, a little help from relatives, and my earnings from my shirt sales, I was able to get myself fully paid for this semester. There's still the issue of next semester, but right now I'm just happy enough that I'm still in school.
And I seriously could not have done it without you guys. From all the sales, I was able to earn two months worth of tuition. I gave this to my Dad, and he cried right in front of me. Cried so much. That I was doing something to help them out, and at the same time crying because I had to resort to something like this when he said that they should be the one doing the work.
But I don't care. I was able to help out, and that was because of all of you. Again, thank you very, very much. You guys have no idea how happy this makes me, and how pumped up I am for Med school again. I swear, I'll get back my scholarship.
That said, I didn't think the shirts thing would be so popular. I've actually been getting a lot of requests, too, which are still in queue (but I promise they're being worked on) mainly because of school. But I do work on them when I have spare time (though that's somewhat rare). I won't exactly quit making designs, but right now school is my top priority, so designs might come out in a very slow rate. I said I'd come out with a few designs last week, but I wasn't satisfied with the finished product that I scrapped them all and started again
. Now there are like
8 pending for the Tales of Series, 2 for Legend of Korra and a whole bunch for Uta no Prince-sama even.
Again, thank you very, very much.
And if you're a fan of Tales, The Legend of Korra and The Avengers, have a look at my shirts here! www.redbubble.com/people/a745
