Are We Having Fun Yet? Your Education

laughing-horseAre We Having Fun Yet?
This phrase was used a lot in the 80s as a quip to another person who was usually in dire straights or in an obvious position of distress.

The one-liner would usually get a laugh, a smile, or a chuckle from the victim experiencing trouble. The line of "are we having fun yet?" was a mini-commentary on life, whether intentional or not.

Are We Having Fun Yet In School?
Making the choice to be an artist, designer, or someone who is involved with media or the arts can be an exhilarating experience; it means you have found your calling in what you want to do for a career.

brush-and-bottlesWhile attending graphic design college, there are labs to attend, assignments to turn in, and deadlines to meet. It can be an exciting time of learning and discovering new skills and techniques.

If your passion is to become an accomplished graphic artist, the work you put in leads to more career training and skills that can prepare you for a profession in design.

The process may sometimes seem daunting, but anything that is worth achieving takes work.

In some cases, students find out that the courses they are taking seem flat or uninteresting. Sometimes, a mid-course correction in the direction you are going is all that is needed to set things right.

If you sense that you are "not having fun yet," the reason may be due to you being mismatched in your field of study. If so, talk to your teacher or counselor to discuss what courses of action you can take.

A student was once overheard saying, "Yeah, it's really tough work doing all the labs and assignments, but it's a lot of fun too. I'm really learning a lot."

He got a job in graphic arts upon graduation. His spirit and good attitude sustained him through school.

He found out a simple secret to help him through the rigors of college; he was having fun learning.
