Sem breaks are usually when the blog gets neglected. Coz there's pretty much nothing interesting happening for me to rant about. Cept maybe boiling into a hard-boiled egg in this crazily hot weather.

That aside, i'm trying to maximize my personal time during this hols. Live my life to the fullest. Game like no tomorrow. Watch anime like no tomorrow. Draw like no tomorrow. And, last but not least, sleep like no tomorrow. It's the last long one i'll ever get before i get booted down the hole in Sparta. Might as well live like i won't get another chance.

Another year to go, and i'm still undecided of what to do once i grad. When i graduated from my comp science at least my goal then was to pursue art. Now that i'm here i'm lost as to what to do when i'm done with the course. Work as a programmer? then for what purpose did i enroll for the 3 years of torture? I might be a M but not to this extent.

So this leaves me with the next obvious option. Work along the lines of what i'm taking up now. So what will i be when i'm out? Character designer for game companies? Sure i'll love to and is probably what i really wanted but i see it as an impossibly far-off goal as of now. Maybe with opportunities to learn and grow in future then i'll come back to it.

Ah if not that then? Freelancing for advertising visuals and such while i look for another job? Ugh i won't be enjoying this one but i need moolahs to make a living right? If it comes down to this why not. Then the other job might be tutoring or lecturing while i get the ins and outs of the art industry. Coz where i am right now? i don't even know what jobs are there available for me when i'm out.

Moving on, how bout working for animation firms? i can handle 2d animations but if its 3d then goodbye-sayonara-see-you-in-hell. I haven't gone through matte painting yet so i'm not sure how i can be useful in that aspect as of now. I personally wont mind getting a 2d animation job, sure it's thankless, stagnant, and takes long hours to accomplish but i can tolerate that with some prior insight into this field before.

Now the least expected place i'll ever end up in...Design firms. Hell no i'm not cut for design and i know it. Sure it's nice to see well made designs and all but i'm not prime cut for CREATING them. I might be able to produce kindergarten-standard of designs and that's about it. And that's already pushing myself to the limits

How about manga artist? Sure if you can forebear with cheezy titles i might come up with. You might think, nah how cheezy can it get? Seen it all. Nothing will ever prepare you for the furies i will unleash if i ever venture into doing this for a living. Oh but don't worry, it'll be a short-lived one coz i might have died from starvation halfway between and the world will be rid of a pestilence like me. Humans will regain their sight again after this blinding ordeal.

As of 4th of May 2010, Kai has yet to make any decisions for his own future orz
2 years 8 months left to the end of the world.
