...When I met you, I was but the learner, now I am the master.
Last week, on August 31st, just before 3pm, I finally handed in my major research thesis project and paper to the office at Ryerson University to complete my Masters degree in the Media Production program and end my experience as a University student.
... I was then dead to the world for until the next day since I had not slept at all for over 24 hours.
The thesis project that I've been working on all this time is available to the public for all to play. Yes, I said play. My major research topic was Video Games for Social Change, and thus I made my own video game based on much research. The game I created is called An/Other. What is it about? That is something I encourage you to see for yourselves. You can play it and access my research paper at the following link: sparkcomic.com/AnOther/WebVer.…
Going to and graduating from University has literally been my biggest dream since I was 3 years-old. Now, I've proudly achieved that dream not once, but twice. It was hard work, but it was worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in University, including all the triumphs and hardships. I've achieved far more than I've ever dreamed these past 5 years and I've made many friends and helped a great many people along the way. I'm sad its all over, but I think I'm ready for a new chapter in my life to begin... Right after I get some sleep. I've slept in for a week after 4 months straight of little sleep working on my thesis research and I'm still exhausted.
I hope to create more artwork, comics, and media experiences for everyone soon.
