Many times, I’ve heard people say that the hardest part of doing something is simply getting started. When I recently stopped thinking about enrolling in graphic design school, and actually contacted a local school, my life started getting better.
I’ve been working at a retail store, and living paycheck to paycheck for many years. Ever since I was a child, I’ve really enjoyed drawing and painting. For years, I’ve thought about making a living doing some type of graphic arts work, but I guess I was scared to try.
Because I live in Florida, I looked up graphic design schools that are located there. When I went to http://top-graphicdesignschools.com/florida, I found lots of very useful information.
After I filled out an online form requesting more information about their graphic arts program, the school I selected got back to me the next day.
Within a few weeks, I had toured the campus, gone through the admissions and financial aid process, and became enrolled as a student.
I have to say, I feel better about myself since I decided to finally do something with my artistic interests and abilities. Even though it will require a lot of work, the potential financial and professional rewards make all of the effort very worthwhile.
When I meet people now and they ask me what I do for a living, I feel good about saying that I’m also receiving an education that will significantly improve my life.
The program I enrolled in is two years in length, and I can still work almost the same hours at the store. During the day, I work at the store, and at night, I attend classes.
For a long time, I’ve thought about moving to California at some point. The other night, I looked up California vocational schools and was glad to see that there are plenty of good graphic design schools located there.
No matter where I’m living, when I receive a Certificate in Graphic Production, I’ll be able to greatly increase my earning potential, and feel good about my life.
