Too Cool for School
I am going back to school!!
I love education and learning. I feel so happy when I am in school. I decided to go back to school this January at the local community college. I want to get my Associates in Graphic Design. I am really looking forward to it.
I almost got my BA in graphic design, and actually took a few classes. It wasn't my most successful quarter at school...so I decided on art instead. I figured that it was more important for me to get my degree in something I truly enjoyed learning and studying, then trying to get a degree in something that I really didn't care about.
I don't want to say that I regret getting my degree in art. That last year of school for me was the most enjoyable year of my life so far. I made some of the greatest friends and formed some of the closest relationships that I have ever had. Like my friend Nishki! I met my fiance too :) It was great, and it didn't feel like school at all. It felt like going and making art and hanging out with friends all day.
I didn't want it to end....I even started thinking about starting our own artists colony out in the woods, so that it would last FOREVER...ha!
Anyway, I am not expecting Oakland Community College to be all that exciting, but I am looking forward to learning graphic design and finally starting a career that relates to my field. I can always fall back on making art, and I am by no means going to give it up. I just don't want to have to work a crummy retail job for $12.oo an hour any more.
Anyway so that's that. Mike and I got out kennel for our puppy yesterday. I am really happy about that too. Four more weeks! I'll be posting tons of pictures.
