Thinking Allowed

A blog to detail my work at QU.

Where Am I Headed?

Posted By admin on November 12, 2009

Planning is underway to decide which courses to take next semester. In order to stay on a graduation path of two full years (including summers) I need to make sure to hit all the required and elective courses when they are offered. That is the easy part of this program.

The more confusing aspect of getting an Interactive Communications degree is the question ‘What are you going to do with it?’ I will be the first to admit my mother has been hinting since I received my Bachelors that I should go back to school and get another degree. She is extremely happy and proud that I am working towards my Masters. So pleasing her could be my answer. With these tuition prices, that is one expensive gift. ;)

Everyday I go to class, I realize there is so much more that I need to learn. Currently I am thinking ahead to my final assignment due in my Visual Aesthetics class. With work, life, and weekly classwork for my two classes, I haven’t had a lot of time to concentrate on the web pages we are supposed to design for class. Hopefully tonight I can get some work done on them.

I wish there was some formula I can plug into my brain that would tell me… this is a good site. This is how to create it. However, since I am still learning the do’s and don’ts for web design I am struggling to think of a creative way to present my material.

I equate this learning experience to how it feels to start a new job with tasks you are challenged with in the beginning. Everyday the process of doing that job gets easier and easier as your brain learns it. I am hoping that happens with Visual Aesthetics. Until then, I guess it will be trial and error, and error, and error.

I am hoping one day the light bulb turns on for this course, and for the path that my life will take once I have the diploma in hand. Right now I am happy with my present, but optimistic about what the future has to offer.
