    Another not-so-proud anecdote: My fifth semester was a particulary rough one for me. I was an Environmental Science major and the year prior I had to write a paper for one of courses (Environmental Geology), that was about Hot Springs and Geysers. I was taking a course (Science and Technology) that had remote similarity to it and also had to write a paper. I had like no time to write it and study for finals at the same time. However, the way the prof set things up was to drop the lowest grade. So I submitted my Hot Springs and Geysers paper, with the idea that it will fail miserably, yet be dropped as the lowest grade. My plan worked, but the prof made this comment about being a great paper for the Envrionmental Geology - but not his course. Ouch! It was like he knew.....

    Okay, everybody knows that "finals" week is not so bad in comparision to what some people face in the "real" world. Actually right now, I would prefer to be back there in those fairly care free days, of classes and finals week and not here in the "professional" world.

    The BSBA wasn't so bad compared to what they expected in graduate school. Course I guess when you have nothing to compare it too, well it could be the end of the world. After boot camp, I figured there wasn't anything as bad as that, so my college years were spent pretty much maximizing their enjoyment, and I even graduated on time.

    So, I agree with Jim, it is a little bit of both, discipline and fun, and not indulging too much in either. Enjoy High School and College to its MAX!!

    Anecdotes of my current freshman year: I write on desks & other school property, I have permanent markers in school, I always have my pocket knife anyway (I always have that.. never know when I might have to break into my own house with the blade or need a screwdriver or a saw or a corkscrew or a bottle opener or a can opener or a needle eye or a nail file... school people never know unless you take it out anyway), I use at least one hall pass every day, I always have my CD player and sometimes listen to it in class (I concentrate better and work faster if I'm rockin' out, don't you know... *innocent*.. actually I do), I used the library computers to come on here once, I tell my 4th period teacher I'm going to the bathroom when really I'm going to wander around & get a soda, broke the dress code a few ways (wore the hood on my hoodie over my head until I got yelled at by the scary dude, wore a shirt with the rebel flag on it [don't know about now, but that used to be against the dress code there]), I chew gum basically any time I want...what else... I dunno. It's the life.

    Boot camp... it's fun. Actually it was the Central Florida Law Enforcement Explorer Academy, which is a glorified name for boot camp + classes... yeah... and I have knee problems, so the last week and a half was the worst shin splints and/or knee pain ever.... and I now have a nice permanent scar from the first day when somebody slammed into me & the asphalt removed a deep round peice of flesh from my elbow (blood running down to my fingertips, but it never hurt... that was weird) but it was all good. Going next year for phase 2.

    LLeopardGGecko, on the issue of what major to get into the game industry with, I have some info for you. In my 13 years in the game industry, I've hired over a hundred people, so I actually know about this.

    While there are jobs in music, voice, writing, design, producing, and management, the VAST bulk of employees are either programmers or artists - and those people move on to the other positions (well, not music.) Anyway, a computer science degree is what you want if you want to be a programmer. Later on you can decide further specialization, but that's the basic degree. If you are more of an artist/animator, your college major or any degree is of much less importance. We've never hired a singe artist based on education or degree. However, you should probably emphasize your Fine Arts skills as much as possible. 90+% of artists these days need 3D-modelling skills. 3D Stuido Max and Maya are the leading modelling programs. Know them inside and out. Traditional animation, figure drawing, and general art skills will get you places, too. Generally, the good artists we hire have many sketchbooks filled with doodles and pictures. It takes PRACTICE more than "education" to be a good artist.
