Well... It wasn't meant to happen this year. Yet, I'm a strong believer in persistence and the eventual pay off it usually brings with it. Today I received notification from Laika Animation Studios in Hillsboro Oregon, with the news that I had not been selected to attend this years summer internship program. MAN I REALLY WANTED THIS OPPORTUNITY. My attempts to enrich my skills a bit more and earn a some additional income to go towards my tuition, before heading out to CCA next year.
