28 May

I had a day off after an 8-day streak at work, so I decided I wanted to go to Houston to commemorate it. I asked Eric if he would want to go with me and he suggested we go to the beach instead, which I thought was a much better idea. I got Jared to come along as well. It turned out to be an awesome trip. I got to skateboard at this skatepark by myself. We went swimming in the ocean and had some pizza and beer.

Good day.

EDIT: Eric took some pictures of me skateboarding so I thought I’d put them up. Check out how vertical I can get.

Now what?

14 May

Well, I finally did it. After about 5 years of attending college, I am graduating with a bachelor’s degree in communication. I barely scraped by in my 6 classes this semester too. Nah, just kidding. I got 5 A’s and a B. I also just turned 24 about a week ago. So now I have a dilemma, I am a 24 year old with a college degree that works at a retail store at the lowest possible level you can be. I’m not sure of what I want to do now. I pretty much have two options: I can continue my education and get a master’s degree in graphic design, or I can move to another city and attempt to get a job and start enjoying my life a little more. Or I can continue working where I work now forever and hate myself until I die. So really I have three options. I am kind of leaning towards continuing education because I really think I would enjoy the classes and it would rule to have a master’s degree. We’ll see though.

I have been trying to put together a good looking resume for the past few days to aid in my new job search. I’ve also started trying to come up with some ideas for some portfolio work I could do in case I need to apply for a design job or an advertising agency or something. I just got some design programs on my new computer so I’ve been messing around with them a bit. Here’s a building in Beaumont from a few posts ago that I illustrated in one of the said programs.

salutations,
