Hello, hello. It's been a while since an update. I really should get better at that.
It's been a busy couple of months. Working at Xpress, participating in DePaul's latest MayDay, and being a voice in my pal's Mario animation. Wow!
I voiced Toad again, as before. I was a fan of sprite fan-imation before, so it's pretty cool that I could be involved with something like that. Plus "Itony" is one of the few people still keeping it alive, which is pretty neat in itself.
And I knew him in college, so I can tell that this is very much a product of his, haha.
It's kind of strange how, lately, everyone seemed to find themselves busy with their own thing all at the same time, so I've been thinking of focusing even more myself. I had been working and improving in my own way, but I think I should learn things outside of my realm, and become more applicable as a creative in other areas as well. I guess I'm just not sure where to focus on that.
Lynda.com is a site I've been using to sort of teach myself more and more things. It's pretty neat, and I had recently learned that certificates you get there from completion are added onto your LinkedIn profile as actual certificates! Wow! It's pretty encouraging, and I would like to learn more and more. The only thing is that it can be kind of daunting, not knowing what exactly it is you should be watching or studying.
Not only is it a matter of spending time to watch, but also figuring out what skills you can pick up and be able to show that you're capable, that works with what you already know, and that people would even care to have. Is it too late to learn to code sites? Is it even an asset? Is it one that you can prove you know enough of? Would your time be better off spent learning something else, or enforcing something you already know? These questions just add more questions. I admit that I'm not a fan.
But it's something to figure out, I suppose.
