So it’s my last semester of college, and I plan for it to be my last semester of school. I’ve got less classes than usual (which would still be a great amount if I went to a normal school), but that includes the big project: my Thesis.
Now, since I’m not in grad school, I would think I wouldn’t have to write a thesis. But like with everything else, this school likes to be the exception rather than the rule. I’ve been preparing for this for a while, though. I had the written part of the thesis done last semester, and now comes the design area: to make a project jumping off from the paper.
Okay. I’ve got the winter break to think about it, and I’m sure I’ll figure out something. But, of course, the semester started last week, and I’ve got nothing. My paper was on Stephen Colbert and Group Mentality, there isn’t really anything visual about that. Well … I do have one idea, with the way my brain works. A brain that says if you can’t photoshop it, just take the picture yourself.
It’s a diary account to attempt to create my OWN internet following. With social media, youtube, twitter, and billions of bloggers, it shouldn’t be that hard, right? Even if nothing happens, I could write about that. Besides, this is supposed to be a graphic design project, so the text content doesn’t really matter. No one’s gonna stand there and read the whole thing.
Only one problem remains, the big one: what am I going to do to try and gather a following? Sing online? Post stupid pictures? Photoshop mustaches on celebrities?
I guess I have a few days to figure that out. Until then, this is my first diary post. I hope to have something more interesting in the future.
