Change in plans...

So instead of Humanist Psychology, I'm going for Intro to Digital Media. Why an introductory FILM course in my junior year?

Well, as I guess I haven't said here before, I intend to get an MFA in Digital Arts and New Media once I'm done with my BA in Linguistics. That's a pretty sharp leap to a completely different discipline. My Music minor only slightly, slightly helps. So I was talking to an academic advisor who also happened to be taking this MFA right now, and he told me that I have to be recreationally and academically interested in pursuing digital media-related shit. No duh, right?

Sooo... jumping out of Linguistics might be a little too risky - and if I do, I definitely wouldn't be able to graduate in 4 years. So I'm sticking with Linguistics, planning on getting a BA in it, AND I'm still planning on minoring in music, but in the meantime with any free time I might have I also plan on cramming my schedule full of digital media-related stuff. Not that that's a bad thing (in fact it's going to be very fun), but I really have to start right away if I have even a smidgen of a chance of doing a master's program here.

Ughua. I wish I knew all of this earlier. And this is all funny to hear, that at this point I barely have a chance, after I've just finished tidying up my portfolio, even though it doesn't cut it in the slightest when it comes to actual achievement which is interesting on an academic level.

On a side note, I might be a counselor at a tech camp this summer!
