30B30: Plan a future

This blog post is part of the 30 Before 30 tag, where I have 30 goals that I aim to complete before turning 30 on the 11th of March, 2017.

I thought it was certainly time to update my 30 Before 30 tag, with a specific update and tick off of the Plan a future item (sitting on #2). It’s kind of a big one, and I am glad that I can now be able to say; “Oh cool, I have a future, I have plans, things are going to be alright.” That’s not to say, that unexpected things can’t happen, plans can and often do change. I am content with the fact that at least for now, I have some direction!

My plan for the future

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!
