A few weeks ago a class of mine was debating on whether or not a degree is necessary in the Graphic Design field. Many of my classmates, including myself, instantly said "Of coarse! Why is a degree a bad thing?" One of my peers, however, believed that having a degree is worthless and a waste of money. Though it's a bit ironic since that he recently graduated. When I asked why he simply said that a company would not even look at your portfolio unless you had some sort of degree. If you have the talent, why is higher education so vital?

Later that day I have a small chat with an older professor of mine. In our discussion he asked whether or not I was satisfied with what I've learned so far. At first I thought, "No! College was a waste of money/time." Obviously, I didn't say this to his face. After I had this thought, however, I realized how far I had grown, not only in design by as a person. Three years ago, before I left for college, I can honestly say that I didn't know how to take care of myself. Things like dishes, laundry, and generally cleaning was natural, because I had done it before. But shopping, managing money, and becoming self motivated in studies was a thing I had to learn my first year. I learned that it is cheaper to make things from scratch (soups, pizza, etc). I learned that teachers will not ask about missing work or if you need help. I learned that living off of $60/Month is nearly impossible. That having a car is a luxury, an EXPENSIVE ONE (hello bicycle)!

Looking back I'm glad I went away to college. It has definetly helped me, not only as a student, but as a person!

Hello everyone and welcome to my second (?) journal entry! I'm going to give a quick review on my new camera, the Kodak Easyshare Max!    

 

~Features~

    Beautiful picture quality (4000x3000 or 12M per picture)

    A great 30x zoom
    
    Picture Editing Options:
            color changes
            black and white
            and a bunch of other stuff!

    Environment Changes
            quick shot
            smart capture~which is pretty amazing!
            portrait 
            night time
            movement 
            landscape 

    Wi-Fi
            I love this because I can just sned any image to the net without using my computer!

    Batteries
            A lot of people hate this, but I honestly don't mind! Instead of having a chargable battery pack they give you 4 rechargeable                           batteries with a charger. If I forget to charge the camera on the go i can just stop at the store and get some double A batteries.

    Best of all I only payed about $100 for a refurbished one! For a new one the retail price is $350, which also isn't too bad!
