books

I recieved my books for my next class, Advanced Graphic Design, last week. I was surprised to get three. I got Photoshop CS Visual Quickstart Guide, InDesignCS Visual Quickstart Guide, and Graphic Design: Vision, Process, Product. I had figured we’d be using Photoshop, but the InDesign book was a surprise. I’ll be okay because I know Photoshop, but I think Photoshop and InDesign will be a lot to learn together. I can access that class starting next Friday. I think that class will be a lot of work.

There was an ad in the paper today for a full-time graphic designer for a web design company. I fit the requirements (Photoshop, Illustrator, PowerPoint, FTP, Dreamweaver…well, except I don’t really know Dreamweaver since I prefer to code myself but I imagine I can learn it fast enough). I don’t know if I should apply though. It’s right by downtown Harrisburg and I’d have to drive across the river to get there (only about 10 minutes but I hate driving over there). Plus, since it’s full-time I’d be working 40 hours a week probably 8-5. Sounds kinda silly, but I don’t know if I want to do that. I’d hardly ever get to see Joe. I wouldn’t have enough free time, with my classes and all. I’d have more money and I’d probably like what I was doing though.

I don’t know. Part of me doesn’t feel ready for a job like that. Part of me wants to finish my degree first. I know there’s a very good chance I won’t even hear from them if I apply and that I can always turn the job down. I’m still not sure I even want to apply.
