Just thought I'd let you guys know, I'm quiting my studies. Okey, now you think: He's giving up, he's a quitter!.
But in fact I now know what I want to study. My current education was the first year to become a bachelor in audiovisual techniques. Now, don't think too much of the audio part. It's mainly movie-making. But you see, it is impossible for me to think of any motivation why I would want to make movies.
Now what I really want to do and why I started this course, is to become an audio engineer in a music recording studio. And that is possible with this education, although it's not specialisating in audio. But in the first year of my current education, almost no audio is involved, and making a movie for me is something I can't do, I can think of scenarios and ideas. But putting all the theory we got into practice and make a movie, again, not working for me. No motivation whatsoever.
So I've decided to quit my current education, find me a job, work for a year or so, untill I have enough money to start my education. Thing is, this course is not given in Belgium, so I'm going to move to the Netherlands after I make enough money.
My mother is actually much more supportive of this choice then I first thought, but she doesn't know the price yet. This an extremely expensive education. For us anyway. Roughly calculated, it's about 18.000$ for 2 years. Without housing and money to actually live.
But this is truely what I want to do with my life, and I am very much willing to work my *** off to get the money I need to do this education. (BTW
, This is a course held at the SAE
.edu . They also have an SAE
institute in NY, Any New Yorkers that have a spare room? Laughing )
A difficult period is ahead of me, but I trust I can accomplish this goal, because I am very motivated, and my sense of reality is well enough to realize what it will take.
In the meantime, while looking for work and working, I'll still be on AA, don't worry, not leaving Razz
