   09.30.05 || Six Weeks Gone

In thinking about this semester, it seems to be flying by. I'm not sure if that because this is my last fling, my last semester in college life or because I've been keeping rather busy. I'm not a full time student, I'm basically done with school, two classes left I'm taking right now, which means I’ll be graduating with a BS in Mechanical Engineering come December. This is basically a vacation to me; it’s very nice after 5 years of engineering work, classes, internships, and all the other stuff that goes along with it.

My main job now is finding one. I went to the job fair here at NIU on Wednesday, and plan attending the Engineering job fair, as well as the internship fair next week. Listing my resume on company’s website, and other online job search sites, in an attempt to find the ultimate job.
With that said, my photography and videography (whiteography) business is going well, very well actually. We’ve been keeping very busy, so if I don’t find a job in engineering, or other similar field, I really could pursue my photography business. Lots have asked why I'm in engineering, considering my own business is thriving. It’s an option, and that’s the way I like it.

Sixteen weeks seems long when classes are hard, and tests are tough, but this vacation is nice. With the semesters midpoint hitting soon, I have to make the best of this semester, leave NIU on a good note, and get ready for the real world, I'm just not sure I'm ready for it, this vacation is nice, only 10 more weeks.


phil, you the man!

Yeah, just enjoy it while you can and live up these final 10 weeks. I'm always thinking about how I wish I was working and should have never gone to grad school, but then I realize that college is the greatest years of my life.

But I think whatever path you take after graduation -- whether it's full-time photography or engineering -- you'll do well.
