Nope I don't really have any. I am overloading this term and I am a double major Studio Art and Communication Studies (don't know if I ever shared that tid-bit before) which means a lot of work outside of the classroom plus a senior show. I am also doing an internship at a local graphic design firm and I am trying to figure out what the heck I'm going to be doing next year.
I could so easily let this overwhelm me and stress me out but I'm going to stay on the bright side. I am actually really excited about finding a job. I feel that leaving college is going to be very freeing- I can do what I want, a job that I really love, that I am passionate about! No more GERs or major requirements or exams! Yes I know that the "real world" comes with a whole new slew of things like bills and mortgages and bosses but I'm ready.
I have started making a list of things that I want to do, am excited to do and hopefully will have time do once I am out of school. It helps minimize stress and stay positive and focused about graduating!
Here is what I have so far:
1. Scrapbooking- I started making a scrapbook of all my sorority pictures from events and functions and things so I want to finish that (I am missing junior and senior year pages). I also want to make a whole college scrapbook that is just filled to the brim with pictures from all four years. And I want a young life scrapbook of my team and my kids! These three books should keep me pretty busy...
2. I want to learn web programming. HTML, XHTML and CSS code so that I can make web pages. Today I went to Barnes and Noble (I could spend weeks there) and I bought a book that will help me teach myself. It's for the absolute beginner so I feeling hopeful that I can learn. I might start looking through this book before graduation because knowing this is going to be really helpful in the graphic design industry.
3. I want to sew and maybe make some of my own clothes. I look at clothes in stores and online and just think why in the world does that dress or shirt or skirt that is a single piece of fabric cost a hundred dollars? I'm being economic plus I think it just be totally cool to make my own clothes and then everything would fit me right!! Maybe I'll ask for a sewing machine- birthday/graduation?
4. Learn to play the harmonica. I got one for my birthday a while ago but I never really mastered it. This is probably a reaction to seeing the Holcombs play this weekend.... but it would still be really fun if I could play my guitar and harmonica simultaneously.
That's all I have on my list so far.
