I finally got my iPad2 I ordered way back on 3/12/2011… WHEW!

I’ve posted pictures of our trip to DC and the Cherry Blossom Festival on a NEW page called “Personal Stuff…”. I hope you enjoy this new page and the pictures I post there.

Today in graphic design class I polished the inside of my menu. I am almost finished – I just need to add pricing to my food items. I’ll post the entire menu with the re-vamped cover and insides by Thursday, so, stay tuned.

I was excited to share with my professor the information I got from the Adobe CS5 seminar and that they made an announcement this morning about Adobe CS5.5 and the new subscription pricing available.

Also, cross your fingers because I am trying to apply for a scholarship from the new honor society I joined. I asked three people at Kaplan to give me reference letters. I hope I can get this money towards my degree!

The iPad is done updating, so, I will talk to you tomorrow, faithful reader… C


I went back to college to finish a degree. One degree. Any one.

WELCOME… and thank you for reading my little blog to the world.

I’m 43 and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. Well, that’s not exactly true. I’ve always wanted to be an artist. I want to be the antithesis of what I am now – organized, quiet, patient and persevering. I want to be that crazy artist that everyone talks about and wants to know. I want my work to be internationally known and I want to meet interesting people and finally travel to Paris…

Okay, I know I’m ranting a bit. I’m sure as the blog progresses I will get better at bringing a single topic each day to you. But, today, at the very beginning, please let me type as much and as fast as I can. I was laid off of work and given the chance to go back to college. I chose Graphic Design as my major. I want to be a graphic designer and graphic artist.

I only have 3 classes and 2 terms to go before I graduate! Going to class today was exciting and overwhelming. Since we are near the end of our journey, there are more assignments and they are due faster than ever. We completed two in-class assignments today and we were given a tutorial assignment due in a week. I’ve posted the two in-class assignments in the Class Project section.

I’ve also included my final Photoshop project from last term. Why? Because the professor gave me an A and asked me to do two more and submit them to the 2011 Adobe Design Achievement Awards! I am working on the set of three and I’m entitling the project “Whale Watching”. The photos were from our trip to Provincetown, MA in 2009. I honestly don’t hope to win anything, but, it sure was nice of my professor to persuade me into doing it.

Until tomorrow, faithful readers… C
