The college I'm going to has two options I'm considering, the graphic arts degree and the game development certificate, and I was told the degree gets you farther as far as jobs go. I'd like to know why, considering in both of them you make a portfolio, and the only real difference is, the certificate focuses more on game creation and doesn't have the general education classes. I don't NEED gen-ed. My grammar and writing are fine, I couldn't care less about history, and science has no relation to any artistic career I want. So I'm probably going for the certificate (which is scary enough; they use about 1,200 graphics programs and eek I fear 3D).
The labs have the greatest thing (for computer geeks) though. Each station has a PC and a Mac, and a switch thing to go between them. I want that setup at home. :D
I feel so guilty when people around me are depressed/lonely and I'm not. I also fear I'll eventually feel depressed and lonely again, due to the law of...my life sucking. One of the saddest things to me is when people, even ones I don't know, break up. It gives everything a feeling of hopelessness. Everyone watch my heart break for people I don't even know. ._.
