i won first place in my class for the best signage solution! this makes me happy as i missed a day where we turned in an assignment, and i got a zero for it because youngblood is a complete hardass about turning shit in on time, so i need all the help i can get to make that up. (we only have like 5 grades in the class)
now, i actually appreciate teachers that are hardasses like that and push people to be professional and do professional quality work. there's nothing i love more than a teacher that will tell a student their project is crap, because those teachers are the ones that will work with you to make it better and actually teach you things.
my font is coming along well. i should really post pictures of what i have done thus far... but i'm lazy and it's much easier to put it off and type about it than to actually open fetch and upload it.
i'm giving my rats back today to the woman i adopted them from. this is really painful because i love them to death eventhough baily has a love of eating my flesh. they're getting really old and i'm scared one is going to die and leave the other all alone, and i don't want the remaining one to be unhappy for the rest of her life. the woman i adopted them from has metric fuckloads of rats (seriously. she has around 100) so i know that they won't get lonely.
i'm also about to have to move (in january) and i don't want to take old rats out in the dead of winter, the shock of the cold might kill them :\ i would feel fucking terrible if that happened.
it's hard for me to admit that they'd have a better life without me, but i think at this point i have to and do what's best for them. i'm sorry skibbles and baily, i hope you understand that i'm only giving you away to help you. :\
i'm not sure yet, but my rent's going up to $760 in january for a one bedroom apt and i just can't afford that. i'd like to stay around dunwoody/sandy springs, but right now it's not looking like that's going to be possible.
i had her about a year and a half ago. and like you i don't mind hardasses who challenge students to improve. she's a very nice lady and can be helpful but the way her class and projects were set up at the time, i found it to be quite chaotic. the fact that i came out of that class with an a is proof that god does exist.
but i will say this: another classmate, who is a graphic design major, and i were chatting one day and she pointed out that students who have had youngblood early on (and do well in her class) traditionally do better in the program.
congrats on the signage solution.
oh if you want to take a class with someone who is chaotic, take a class with whikehart. that woman is insane with her constant changing of what's due and when. i had her about a year ago, and youngblood is nothing in comparison.
it really helps that i feel like youngblood knows her shit, unlike whikehart who is incredibly harsh on student's design and her design is complete and utter shit, and unlike rorobaugh. she's earned my respect eventhough the class is pretty hectic, so it makes it easier.
