So after all the back and forth between whether or not to drop one of my extra classes next quarter, I just dropped both. They both seem like they’d be great fun, and I’m sad to see them go, but there are too many good things going on….
Instead, I added two non-credit classes that are going to be freakin AWESOME. Hopefully. I was checking out the class schedule at the School of Visual Concepts, looking for their letterpress class, when I noticed they had motion design classes, being taught at Digital Kitchen. The Intro to motion design is being taught by the creative director of DK, whose last name is MULDER! and The Intro to After Effects is taught by other staff at DK. AH! I’m so excited! You should have seen me freaking out and bouncing around earlier. It was crazy.
I’m also possibly rebranding the Honors Program and redesigning their website next quarter, if all goes as planned. I’m sure I’ll be ridiculously crazy busy, but it doesn’t matter. I’m totally excited to hang out at Digital Kitchen for 10 weeks and supplement my education. I mean, it would be fun to build sets and costumes and play with lego robots, but I think this will be better and more useful. And I mean, it can’t be bad to get to know people who work there, right? I’d also like to possibly incorporate some of this learning into my senior project sping quarter if possible.
Also, Riley and her Mom came by on the way to Alaska! We ate what was probably the least bad IHOP meal I’ve ever had. I think the key is to eat it outside of the U-district.
