Highlight of the Day: Plan B Into Motion.
Today was a graduate portfolio day at the Art Institute of Chicago. I showed my portfolio to a bunch of schools who came to Chicago to recruit grad students, and I received a lot of positive tips and compliments. Of all the schools present there, I am definitely applying to Parsons in NYC and Otis in LA.
Here's my plan for the future: if I don't get a permanent job in graphic design (Plan A) or get accepted into grad school (Plan B), I'll have to resort to Plan C -- which may involve severe self-loathing and a lot of Twinkies and daytime television.
