Hey guys g1 ReapersxBane (or Julio) here and I decided I should start up a blog. It took me awhile to figure out what I should blog about and it did take quite some thinking and I decided maybe I should talk about my "journey" into my major graphic design and hopefully future career as a website designer. I wanted to do something game related but I can't figure out anything but in due time I will...eventually. But for now lets get to explaining a few things about how I'm going to do this series of blogs, dive into how I came up with the career idea, and how and why I decided to do blogs like this one.
For starters what I will do is possibly give an update on how everything is going with my set up for college weekly or every other week depends on how much time I have on my hands. I'll also always put in the end what I will be doing for the next blog (no dates of an update tho so if anyone reads this they won't get angry that I didn't put it up in time). Also this blog might be pretty boring since I'm a very boring person. The reason I chose to do a blog is to practice my writing and presentation skills (constructive criticism is VERY welcome by all means just go easy on me). It will definitely help me out a bit and maybe get rid of the "stage" fright I have and public speaking.
So now I'll just write a summary of how I decided my career and how the process of me going to college is going. For almost 2 years now I've been outside of school and the past year I was deciding what I should pursue as a career. I wanted to be a photographer but decided that it might be a bad idea since every other person is a photographer nowadays so they would most likely get the job before I do. Thought of broadcasting but did a little bit of research and realized that wasn't exactly for me for many reasons which also really sucks because I thought that would be interesting to do. Eventually after many career thoughts I thought of graphic design since I always have pretty good ideas in my head and I just got into drawing a little bit. Also maybe I'll help design a website or something along those lines. I'm always on the computer and many websites I enjoy. It was settled and I decided to check out a bunch of schools. I finally found a pretty good one that works perfectly for me, it had online classes and the career I wanted. Now it started off as conversation about the career and all that along with the boring financial stuff I won't get into (because who wants to hear that?). This whole month has been pretty stressful for me seeing as I had to finish refresher courses (although they didn't count for me I felt I needed them) and I gotta say they were pretty tough for me then all of a sudden. BAM got smacked in the face with the accuplacer out of nowhere. This had my nerves jumping, I hardly even finished my refresher course that I felt I needed. So I took the test and I gotta say I was really nervous for my results then they called me a few minutes later...
Next: Test scores and what happened after that
Thanks for reading (If you did read anyway)
Edit: WOW I TOTALLY FORGOT SOMETHING! I forgot to add the reason for this blog. The whole reason I'm doing this is because I'm hoping to do some work for gaming websites or something along those lines and to get a community opinion on the work if time time calls for it. Also I wouldn't mind doing some projects for or with the g1s once I have everything sorted out and of course I'll post the occasional sketches and actual artwork (if that happens) when I have some confidence on my work
