My blog before finals and graduation

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!

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.

A blog for a Tuesday in April

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.

3 weeks until finals!

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.
