    NY or Bust?

    Well, I have nearly a year left at my art school, and although everyone considers it a long amount of time until I have to graduate and know what to do with my life, I feel as if it's practically nothing at all.

    Haing a past consisting of ditching senrior year of HS majority of the time and droppnig out of Jr. College, being able to attend an art college for a BA in Graphic Design has been a blessing. I try and push myself as much as I can by going beyond just getting the "A" and doing work outside of class just as often as inclass work is issued.

    Here's my dillema though. I left my hometown, South Florida, to go to this school, located in Phoenix, Arizona. It's been a great time so far; however, when it comes to be the day after graduation, I already want to head out. NY is known to be the marketing kingdom as well as a huge art community. Already having a older brother living there, I decided that right after school, I want to head straight to NY.

    Now I know that most students stay where they are at, find something to do, and contact company's looking to hire via telephone, e-mail, and/or postal mail. While I know this is a tedious, yet secure way...it seems something I really can't see myself doing.

    Call me impatient, idiotic, or whatever, I don't care. I just feel that I need to take a risk. All my life I lived in Fl. and did nothing there, my father knows someone in the ad. business down in Fl. and mentioned how I could just work there. But the whole point of me going to Arizona was to get away from home, and I personally don't find myself going back. I guess what it comes down to, what is your thoughts on this issue. Granted I have a year left, and a lot can happen, I would still like to think what you guys say.

    Ditto.

Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

    Thanks for the responses and support.

    Knowing it's a year till I decide, it's a lot of time, problem is, is that it goes by too fast. Talked to an instructor and he supported it as well. Afterwards, for the hell of it, I went on a few job listings site to see what some graphic design firms/clients/whatever look for when hiring a graphic artist. Well, seeing as this is a gimmie, previous job experience is a must with practically all the job listings.

    So I phone my folks and tell them this alternative scenario then. What if I go back home for a year in order to work for the friend of my father's, save up my money to get a macintosh comp (currently only own a PC), and get the job experience needed with the jobs I actually want to get when I eventually move to NY.
