Last weekend, I graduated from FIDM, with a degree in Visual Communications (visual merch, planning retail interiors,styling, etc. Hard field of study to describe in one sentence..!)! This is my second post-high school graduation, so I was a little wary of going at first (I previously graduated with a B.A. in English, Advertising and Japanese from Penn State University many eons ago), but I’m glad I went and experienced it!
Thanks for Will, True Mee, Alcuin, and Chrissa for coming to the graduation to support me! I felt like the odd man out since everyone else’s parents were there haha. Mine Were too far away to make it, and frankly, I think I’ve subjected them to enough boring ceremonies in my childhood to make them sit through another one.
The graduation was at fancy schmancy Staples center in downtown Los Angeles, home to the Lakers, and other sporting events that I have no clue about 🙂 I loved their projection screens though. That would be the one thing I notice haha.
True Mee got some cute photos from the crowd, too!
Afterward we got some sukiyaki at Yojie, a Japanese place that’s right on the corner of where FIDM is 🙂
They had to cart over enormous trays of meats! Yummm it was SUCH a good deal!
It was a nice chill night and I’m happy I was able to make it to the end of the year at FIDM without dying of exhaustion from juggling class and my businesses. There wasn’t really a break after that, unfortunately, and the day after graduation, I was off to San Francisco to assist Sugarpill with preparations for IMATS!
More on that later! It’s been a busy busy month, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down anytime soon!
