A lot of strange karma things have been going on recently for me. But maybe non so big as this one. I'm currently studying New Media Design at Manchester Met uni. It's pretty snazzy, but only a 2 year course. So for our 3rd year (to get a Ba) I applied for Design and Art Direction. The absolute top course for me to go on, it's basically all I've been through college and this current course - an extremely varied and broad course simply relating to design. From what I've picked up you don't even need to use a computer. It's insane. Anywho. I went in for the worst interview ever for the course. Very daunting. 2 lecturers were silent and 2 more were playing a healthy game of 'good cop, bad cop'. I knew it went bad. And this morning I got a letter saying I've been rejected. At first I was really gutted, just threw everything up in the air like. But I have another interview for Animation and Illustration at the same university. I'm a dead cert to get on that course, mainly because I'm an avid pixel animator and character illustrations do fill my hard drive. But I think this worked out for me. I mean I'm 20, I have no real clue of what I want to do when I graduate or where I'll be in the next 5 years. But this little slice of karma has made me realise that going onto this Animation course gives me some focus in my education and my future career. Plus I don't need a damn design degree, I can use all the software and have the skills already [/takes off big head]. Anyone else here had funny things like that happen? Where things worked out for the best but didn't feel that way at the time?
