Fanlistings

I decided to take up a online hobby that I used to enjoy, making fanlistings.

What is a fanlisting? If you are not sure what a fanlisting is, it is a fansite that you make for a particular subject and allow members to join from around the world. If a member has a website they can use one of the buttons or codes to place on their website and show they are a fan of something (keep in mind that this was before Facebook allowed you to like certain interests, activities and entertainment). You can choose to make a fanlisting for anything, or you can make something for a subject not listed at The Fanlistings Network and apply to have yours listed (or to make one for an available interest). If you have a fanlisting listed on The Fanlistings Network, you have to make sure you follow guidelines, such as allowing everyone to join and making sure you update the site every two months.

Good News

I recieved the news that I was accepted into the Communication Design degree and start in July!

I am really excited about this and I can’t wait to begin. I just have to wait until I get an email to officially enrol in a certain unit and defer my fees (because I could not afford to pay them right now). I will also have to find out if I need any textbooks or programs. I have Adobe CS5, but might have to use the new CC version (which I wanted to try anyway and can use a student discount). ^_^

I have also been busy working on some projects. Blog Matter is open again, Giraffe Host is accepting new applications for free hosting and I don’t think I mentioned this before, but I have a message board everyone is welcome to join!

A new direction

I made a decision to apply to study a degree in Communication Design with Swinburne Online.

I am very interested in this course because it covers many modern design techniques and photography (!). I had to submit a design portfolio with different works I had created and explain my communication and design objective, which was an interesting task. I also had to include a personal statement that gives them an idea if this degree is right for you (I hope they think so). I am a little nervous about it, because I have not studied since 2010 (wow).

I know that this will be a good opportunity for me and give me direction and solid goals. Even if I am not approved for this degree, I am going to find another one (such as Internet Communications that I had started in 2010). For many years I have been floating and not really sure where I was heading. I like to think that this is the start of a new phase that has many wonderful opportunities.

Twenty Eight

On March 11, I turned 28. It wasn’t all doomy and gloomy, but it did feel strange. Yesterday I thought I was only a teen, and now I am inching towards 30.

I think the most important thing that I realised is; I don’t have to act my age, I only have to be myself. My age does not define who I am or dictate how I should live.
