Okay so I managed to do this, and in all the hubub forgot to mark it off my list. My secret? No ordinary brick and mortar gallery for me I opened a gallery in Second Life! If you get a chance drop by it is called Ars Virtua and currently has two shows running!
I started with basic red cross emergency training, and although the videos were graphic and cheesy (which I loved), I think I learned a lot and see the value in even a little knowledge as relates to emergency services and first aid. I am curious where the payoff to time invested shifts though as I really have no interest in becoming an EMT or running an emergency center.
I love what I do, but I need to move on to a career. I am working on a plan to put in applications and to visit local schools that might have openings both online and in meatspace.
I expect this to take quite a lot of time even though I have a cheat. I won’t blow the surprise, but lets just say I am getting ready to launch the call for my first show.
I have actually posted my portfolio, and am trying to blog a bit. Again, we shall have to see what comes of it, and I forsee revisiting this often.
Right now I am just too busy for this.
Now I am trying to tailor the new information for each job application. But worth the effort for sure.
The career fair was a little lame, and a little complex. The conference overall would rate a 3 of 5 stars, as it was the first time I went.
I walked out of the library yesterday after a disapointing meeting and guess what was sitting out for me to take? Ulysses, yes I grabbed the copy.
Now I need a good strategy.
This is really an ongoing process, but I have the first steps in order.
So I made my presentation to the faculty: Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity, The Musical and passed my orals afterwards. All of the feedback so far has been positive and now I just need to submit the paperwork and have my book bound to wait in line for my MFA. Damn FINALLY.
The sun sort of hovered around and the air was crisp and clear. The buildings were craptacious and there was so little vegetation.
The little delicate yellow flowers in the tundra proclaimed spring in the Arctic Circle.
I loved the place, and other than one really annoying lady on the plane the people were very nice.
I got back and realized that the place was its own little world. The tech presentations were well worth it but there were the old cliques there to stand in the way of true socializing. Everyone was approachable though and I would recommend this to anyone working on the web (which was basically the limitation of “interactive” in this case).
My sister has actually found this profound, I think it is useful. And I am actually moving towards goals that I likely would not do otherwise.
see the entry about ongoing, but it is finally done and more or less painless.
It seems that I finish one portfolio and I am already looking to the next. It was nice to actually complete one that shows my current work.
