Graphics program? All I have here to my name is this computer, scanner, typing paper, and a few stray pencils, I wish I had more to work with really A graphics program would be nice to be able to do that stuff in, but until then, all I have size and contrast adjustments And which is a snorkel scoop? Those thin flat ones shaped kinda like a retangle? Or the ones like on the Jeg's cavalier? At least I think its jegs

Years ago when I decided to stop working for minimum wage and go to college I had a choice between journalism school or getting an Advertising/Public Relations diploma. I made a huge mistake when I went for the APR thing; when I was taking that course, I got involved with the student newspaper, became it's managing editor, and discovered I *loved* journalism. Unfortunately, no newspaper that actually pays good money would consider hiring me with the business diploma I'd earned, they all told me to go back and get a journalism degree.

The main reason I chose not to go to journalism school was, as a writer, I didn't want to lose my unique 'voice' and I thought the school would pound it out of me. In hindsight, I realize that the school would have taught me the basic 'newspaper' style of writing, but I could have still retained by own style for other kinds of writing. I still write, but I'm working in factories, rather than newspapers, and it sucks. I've done lots of APR writing and it's been fun, but I would have preferred a full-time job on a paper or a magazine.

So don't let any fear of losing your 'style' prevent you from going to design school. If this is what you'd like to do for a living, get the proper training and credentials, like Foose did, and then you won't have any regrets after.
I think I can keep my styles and theirs straight, no worries about that anymore, now its just getting into the school, or choosing one period
