I have been working on my degree for longer than I have been racing! A four year degree has almost taken me six years already!!!! But that is ok, I am almost done! My degree track is a very subjective one, there really is no black and white.
This quarter was one of my harder ones. I usually only take one or two classes per quarter (hence the six years) so this quarter was no different. The only thing is usually I take one hard class and one not so hard. Since I am getting close to the end the class I need are far and few between, so I take what I can get! This quarter was Desktop Publishing II and Corporate ID. Desktop II our main project was selecting a Condé Nast Magazine and duplicating their layout exactly! It is a larder harder than it sounds, we had to get the spacing right, the font type and size, all the little details… I was pretty proud of my final product, next quarter we will be working even more on that project! Corp ID was a lot more “fun”. We were “redesigning” a local coffee shop. We had to take it step by step. First it was deciding which direction we were going to take the redesign, then coming up with a new name, the a new logo, redesign of the packaging, the signage and finally a branding book (the do’s and don’ts of using the logo).
This past week has been non-stop! I was ecstatic when I got to finally turn in everything yesterday. The past three days I was in my jammies just about all day working non-stop on the computer or running to the printer, the craft shop for mounting supplies. I finished the quarter last night at 10:20!!!! Today is a recovery day & parent/teacher conferences, and it is back to the gym. Now I get two weeks off and then it is back for more!
