    Greetings fellow Followers,   

    It's been a long time since I've made one of these. Like, a REALLY long time: Not since the last day of last year. So what have I been up to?

    I proudly graduated my undergrad back in the spring, ending my 4 years in the New Media Program at Ryerson, otherwise known as the best 4 years of my life. I learned so much these past few years and feel so liberated because of it. I am still legitimately sad that it's over and my friends and I have gone our separate ways, though we still keep in contact. It also resulted in me finishing my Thesis project, Who Are You?, an interactive psychology game that you can play online by clicking the link. It may be a short experience, but I poured a year's worth of passion into it, so I hope you enjoy it. If not, I hope the experience at least meant something to you.

    So with the completion of the New Media Program and my obtaining of a Bachelors of Fine Arts, I have accomplished the dream I've had since I was 5 years-old to go to University and get a degree. That literally has been my biggest goal in life since I was five and at times was the only thing keeping me going through various hardships growing up, I'll tell you that. Now that I have achieved said goal, I do admit, even long before I actually finished my degree, I was at a loss for where to go next. So what is a person to do when they've fulfilled their accomplishments? Make some more I say! To that end, I've gone back to hit myself with the proverbial academic brick by immediately going to get my Masters in Media Production. If all goes well, in a year's time, I will be Master Jordan Sparks (I kid, I kid). Education is important to me and I want to learn as much as I can about the field of media of which I am passionate about. I especially want to push different types games and interactive experiences into the spotlight of my research and my projects because I do sincerely believe they are amazing tools and platforms to bring about social change and I want to prove that in my own way with experimental types of game that explore ideas, the self, and other topics. It does sound corny, I think it's the truth and I hope to use that logic achieve even more milestones soon enough.

    Unfortunately, my busy schedule has trouble accommodating comics so I will be posting them less and less over the next year. It's not that I don't want to make them, I have stockpiles of scripts and ideas I'd love to make, it's just a severe lack of time. The masters program, work, and other responsibilities are kinda tearing me apart right now so much that I don't have too active a social sphere or time for any hobbies. I will try my best to post comics and other works soon though.

    Overall, I'm much more confident in my abilities and my never ending dream to positively change the world through media and entertainment and hope to further my education to increase my skills. Meanwhile, I hope everyone reading this uses their own passions and skills to find a way they can best benefit our world in their own way and do the same.

    Until next time followers, have a good week, achieve great things, and learn everything!
