Sorry about the hold up on the updates, but I have been swamped with written work. Lol I’m just kidding bout the written part – I’m in design school!
Life been great here in Arizona, and I love my classes. My first term, I took Intro to Drawing and Design. A sample assignment is to draw a picture of a square, then draw it 3d, then draw it in perspective. It is not as challenging to me as it might be for some because my brain just works that way.
The other class I found fun was Intro to Game Design. In that class we learned the history of video games. Did you know the first video game was titled “Tennis for two” and it was first created in the year 1958? That is where Pong got its idea. For two weeks of the class, my classmates and I tested video games to study how they were made and look for glitches. I got to play video games in class. Sweet!
I also had a Life Skills & College Transitions class. There actually is a lot of written work in that. Writing is not my favorite thing.
My second term was harder. A lot of computer classes using programs that I didn’t know. So I had to learn to use the programs at the same time I was learning to do the assignments. A lot of kids already knew them, but I’ve done all my design work on paper up to this point. But I stayed late a lot to get extra help and I made it through.
As for my life outside of class, that is going really well too. I decided not to have a roommate, and it was a good decision. I love living by myself and having a space of my own. I have two bedrooms and made the second room into an office where I have a drafting desk and where I do all of my design work. I love the fact that I can go to class and not worry about a roommate eating my pork chops. Ha ha ha. I have made a lot of friends from all over the world, and I have them over to work on our group projects.
All my grades are good so far. I hope to publish some of my art on this website.
Thanks for keeping up with Dartanyon and I.
