my previous goal when i came to chico state was to get a BFA degree. i have realized only lately that this idea is insane- it would mean at least 2 full years more of school, not including the semester i'm already in due to the volume of units. it would also require a portfolio review which gives me the violent heeby jeebies.
if i go for a BA degree in studio art (with the electronic art emphasis) i will graduate in a very doable year and a half from now (so 2 years total). the thing that seals the deal is that there is no gnarly portfolio review...
i feel this to be the educational equivalent of my salvation. in fact, i'm pretty sure the last time i felt this relieved was when God himself pulled my damned and dying soul from the pit. the grimy flames of university hell have faded in the distance, granting me the grace of graduation when i'm like 26 and not 27 or more (sigh...i am getting old).
and also, i will be down in slo the second week in october for the half marathon.
now that's a good sort of discoveries, dont you agree?:)
