As some of you may or may not know, my life has taken an interesting turn of events. I am no longer located in Atlanta, nor am I attending school there anymore. Constantly frustrated by tuition hikes, the technology gap, poor job market and the constant tingling sensation that I was learning little, if at all, made me rethink if I was actually getting towards my goals. So I made a drastic turn to better embrace my curiosity about technological advancement and media, and acknowledged a smaller pocketbook. I packed up my bitty two-door Ford with all my worldly possessions (a.k.a my library), resigned as PR Director for Freeside, said goodbye to the life I’d built and came to Dallas Texas (in the heat of summer).
That being said, expect some musings on the building and rebuilding of life sometime in the future.
I am now finishing my studies at University of Texas at Dallas in Emerging Media and Communications. I’ll be doing at least another year, but I do believe that I’ll have a lot more to offer the world when I’m done.
Other projects at the moment include starting a non-profit arts and technology collective along the grain of Freeside Atlanta, trying to get published more, and working a much better (and better paying) technology related job than working IT at Agnes Scott College.
Thus, I expect some changes to the tone of this blog, perhaps shifting to achievement attempts and experiments rather than just philosophical musings. Expect more content on emerging media. Expect more stark reviews, a la “On the Grave of Dollhouse”.
Similarly, I now have a sister blog focused more on technological advancements and my obsession with social media, deemed Media Circus. They may merge again at some point, but that is to be determined at a later time.
Hope you enjoy the new direction!
