I would like to go back to my old college to get a second degree in Illustration/Cartooning. I was an Animation major - I want to go back to school to further my art training to do comics. I was contemplating either doing that or just taking Continuing Education courses in Illustration/Cartooning - unfortunately, my school doesn't have on online program where I can get the training I need. I have to take care of financial aid issues. My old school is downstate - they don't offer a discount commute program either. Right now, if I could go back, I am also wondering if I would have enough time to make the commute from the local buses to the subway downstate to get to school ontime. I have to find out about the bus company's local student discount program. I know the buses downstate offered student discounts for bus passes. Right now, I am figuring out what to do to further my art training in the meantime. There was a local art school I went to to take classes a few years ago but they closed down because the person who ran the school is not a full-time student. I was trying to find out about online programs to further my art training- I was looking at online programs to get a second degree but if you have student loan issues they aren't going to let people do that unless you are taking care of that first. I was trying to find out about drawing classes in my local area, and other venues to further my art training. There is the Kubert School of Cartooning, which offers a program to further your art training, which you can do from home, and The Art Instructional Schools. AIS is the company that has those free art tests people take and evaluate and they have a two-year program in which people can further their art training.
Do you have any advice concerning any of this?
You shouldn't make RETARDED, ASININE ASSUMPTIONS about things you KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. You MAKE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE A BIGGER IGNORAMUS when you do that.
If I do take continuing education classes through my old school, I am wondering am I going to have time to make the commute to get to take the classes.
You KNOW NOTHING of my PERSONAL FISCAL SITUATION and that is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
That is true, God does help those who help themselves.
Grants to me, I know I am from Australia, but to me, it still comes from us, people in-other-words, that live in your State, from Taxes.
There I get a tad annoyed, because you, can be whoever you want even at your age, if you believe, but to do that, you have to stand on your two feet or else in my opinion you are not successful, rather use, to as if you deserve it and shouldn't work hard like everyone else to get somewhere.
I'm talking general there but I am sure it applies as well.
You obviously are intellient as just pointed out, JG...
firefly you can only hit your head against a wall, a couple of times:)
So, JG what work could you do, to stand on your own two feet?
