Every fall since I graduated from college, I get a little nostalgic for the back to school season. The first couple days of the school year were always the best. Sometimes I really wish I could go back to being a student. After all, there are things I still want to learn.
So here is the hypothetical situation: a distant wealthy relative has died. In the will, there was a trust left for you to attend college/university to gain an undergraduate degree, all expenses paid. If you have a job, they have graciously agreed for you to take a four year sabbatical. The one stipulation in the will: this has to be a degree you want to pursue simply for the joy of knowledge, not because you need it or think it will advance your career (although if it’s something you want to know and it advances your career that is fair game). What degree do you go for?
Me, I would probably head out to one of the East Coast art schools and get a degree in illustration, because after 2-d animation, my second great love is comic book art.
