Here it is, my final blog for Web Design 2. I have been stressed out this week trying to get every project done for class and finals. I have been working hard on my title sequence for the After Effects class and my Operation board game for Flash. My Ipod application is almost done I just have a couple of more tweaks to do before I turn it in during finals week. I also went to the Polish Poster lecture in the Auditorium yesterday but I was late and there was barely anyone in there that they noticed me come in. I was surprised that there was not more kids there because it was one of our fellow students giving the lecture about such artists as Stasys Eidrigevicius. I assume that most kids were busy with finals and looking for jobs. Katherine the person who gave the lecture did a good job. Another thing is that I start my internship at Hitchcock Fleming and Associates in May and I am nervous. I hope that the University of Akron has prepared me enough to do a great job there. Well I have nothing more to write about and I have a lot to do still for finals. All I do know is I can not wait for May 8th because I will be walking at EJ Thomas for graduation.

Here is a blog, a blog about this that and the other. I am working diligently on and After Effects homework trying to get everything to work out perfectly. I can't wait for the semester to be over so I can graduate. I have put in a lot of work this semester but I would really like to have a couple more weeks to work on the final flash assignment. I feel like we did not get enough time and that is really lame. I also never got a chance to go to the Akron Art Museum to see the pattern exhibit. I have been too busy and trying to get up there to go has been a struggle. This summer I will go. Well I have nothing more to write about the semester except... Yeah I have nothing more to write about.

Today is Tuesday and we are going to be given the assignment to design an Apple Ipod Application. I created one last semester and really enjoyed the assignment and this semester I hope to make an even better application. This time around I want to create an application like Google Maps but instead it only finds artwork in areas you search for. There will be a map with a search text box and if you type in the words, "Akron Museum's," it will pull up a map with multiple icons of art museums and galleries. The person then can click the icon on the map and it will pull up information about that particular museum and besides the information it will also have pictures of the museum that the person clicked on. I am excited to get started on this project and to have the semester come to an end. Well I have nothing more to write about today so I am going to go back to working on this project and kicking ass and chewing bubble gum.

Here is a blog three weeks before finals. Today in class we are about to present our consumer websites to the class, I hope everyone enjoys viewing my website. I worked hard on the website trying to get everything in order but you never know with art and design. Art and design is one of those grey areas where people will either love it or hate it because art is subjective and objective. Usually you do not find things to be in both of these categories. To change the subject I have not been to the Akron art museum yet to seen the Pattern ID show, I always forget to go to the museum to see the exhibit because all I can think about is graduating and getting a J-O-B.

Here is my post, another post. I am running out of topics to write about for class so todays blog I am just going to wing it. Yesterday I watched a pretty good movie in my Arabic Through Culture class called the Le Grand Voyage. A movie about a man and his son traveling to Mecca so his father can complete his pilgrimage to the holy land. The movie came out in 2004 and really shows the differences in generations with religion and mentality. Yesterday I also saw a crazy accident going home on route 8 North. The car was demolished and I found out today that the man passed away. From looking at the accident I am not surprised that the man passed away because of how destroyed the car was. I have also been working hard in school because in 5 weeks I will graduate. It is annoying though because I have to wait on the University to put my minor in the computer so I keep reading errors that I am not graduating but I met with my advisor and everything is A ok. Well I have really nothing else to write about except I am hungry and I can not wait for this semester to be over because I am excited to start my internship in May. Well Odious.

Here is my new blog for the week. I have been sick all spring break so it was not enjoyable. I slept most of the time and when I was awake I was sitting on the toilet in agony. Today I am feeling a little better, I am starting to get my appetite back and a little more energy. Other than that I missed my morning class because the medication they gave me made me extremely tired but I made it to my second class. I really have nothing more to write about because I am sick but I did notice that the beginning intro to the show the "View" has a pretty cool type sequence, usually I do not watch that show but it happened to be on. Also Universal Health Care passed in the United States. I am not sure how this is going to affect the United States in the long run but we will have to wait and see. Well I have nothing more to write about and I am getting light headed. Maybe next week my blogs will make a little more sense then they do now!?

Today is March 9th and we just learned about spry's in Dream Weaver. I find spry's to be a lot more complicated to use rather than going into fireworks and creating a drop down menu there. The only bad part about creating it there is all of the sub images fireworks can make if you keep exporting the image into Dream Weaver to just get it right and if you do not bring the quality down. Spry's are interesting but the css that is created from creating a drop down menu is ridiculous. You have to go through each one just to find background color, padding, positioning, etc. I can understand how affective using a spry is but I am a little stubborn and like using Fireworks for rollovers and drop down menus. Other than that I am working on my shopping page for class, I am having a good time making a website that is for shopping for video games. The fake website is called "Games," as the web-site's name applies it is a website about video games. I am using Fireworks for the rollovers but I am not going overboard creating the whole web-site's context in there. I created rollovers in there and then I would add tables to add information. Well I have nothing else really to right about except I can not wait for spring break. I do not think I am going anywhere but I am going to enjoy myself and drink Miller Highlife! As Tony Soprano says "GABA-GOO!"
