I just thought people might want to know that in a month I'll be graduating from uni with my bacherlors of science in Graphic Design. Since I got accepted into this program 2 years ago for this degree I haven't gotten much sleep and don't even remember what it's like to have any type of social life, so it feels really great that it's finally happening.

Now comes the hard part...

...hopefully getting a real job.

Congratulations!!!

I will be graduating this fall and fingers crossed the company I'm interning for will hire me, that way I'll have a job when I graduate. Where at in California are you? Because if your close to LA I would think you could work your way in there. I know several people that are moving there come this summer and next summer when they finish. LA just doesn't sound like my kind of place, that's the nice thing about being on the post production side, you have a choice, if I moved anywhere it would by New York City.

I'm in Northern California and it would be more likely I would get a job in San Fran or somewhere in the Bay Area if I do stay in California. I don't like LA that much, except I do like their graffiti. I like the idea of New York but I've never been there, so it is more of just a cool idea. I'm pretty much open to anywhere in the world that I can get a job. haha, I'm so picky. I appreciate the recommendation.

Oh another cool thing, one of my senior projects was a book that I wrote, illustrated and designed. I just sent it off to be printed today and I'm stoked. I can't wait until it shows up on my doorstep.

Also, congrats on the graduating bit... I just wish I could be... damn triple major... dry.gif

Ah, it was a two year course! I thought it was three years, but even so it seems not very long ago when you said you were starting it.

*hugs* Congrats on finishing! You'll have to post photos of your book so we can all be impressed smile.gif

Yeah it seems that way to me too. I've been in school for the last 8 years. Eight years! I don't know if I'm going to be able to handle not doing 12 things at once.

Well it was 2 years once I got accepted, but I had to do 1 year just to be able to apply to be accepted into the 2 year part...also add to that the 5 years in what you guys over there would call "college" I think, so that I could get into Uni and it's a long long time. The 5 years usually is 2-3 years but I had to work full time to pay off one of my mistakes, so it was part time school. I'm rambling.

Oh and Speaker, right now the book is just printed for a grade, for a few people who helped me with it in some way, a copy for my portfolio, and a few to try and get it "really" published. If I can get an actual publishing house to put it out, then I'll let you know, if I can't and people do want to buy it, I guess the place where I'm having it printed from also allows purchases if I want it to. The only reason I don't have it open to that right now is I didn't get to choose any of the things like book size and paper, so I'm not sure that it's going to match my vision in my head.

Wow I'm just rambling on and on.

Wow it's like I'm spamming the thread, because I posted like a millisecond before you did..hah!

It's called "Dysfunctional Survival Guide" and it's a humorous way of surviving a dysfunctional family and world, then moving on to start your own. It's got tips on how to deal with being in diapers as a baby, to how to feed yourself on a limited budget when you're just starting out on your own. I don't actually recommend doing anything that I wrote, except maybe the mac and cheese and tuna casserole, but even then that's iffy.

My assignment was to "do something funny" because my adviser had recently found out that I am funny and she hadn't noticed too much of that in my work. I had given a presentation on how to survive a dysfunctional holiday the semester before and everyone was laughing so hard, I decided expanding it into a book with funny pictures was the way to go. Apparently my next task after graduation according to my adviser is to get it published, start a website to go with it, and then start writing more versions. I think she thinks I can make a living off of this concept, which is a kind of cool idea.

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy.
