Yay I'm not the only one. But yep true.. Fancy motion graphics aren't really necessary for my type of videos.

Very true yep, though I guess it's just human nature to wanna keep improving/learning more ^^
Yuunarii Aug 7, 9:20 AM
Oww that's pretty awesome ^^ And yeah pretty much every company nowadays is begging for back-end developers nowadays XD Or at least.. Around here. Plus it's a really well paying job, so it's awesome you're this passionate about IT. Some of my classmates are also quite passionate about front and/or back-end development, though lots of them are also really passionate about designing.

Yeah around the age of 11 I started making crappy slideshows in WMM. Nowadays I work with Adobe After Effects, but I'm still not suuuuper skilled with the program. Mainly because the type of content I make doesn't necessary require that much of fancy After Effects stuff (like fancy motion graphics), though I still try my best to improve my editing ^^
And thank you :D Yeah I'm quite a nitpick, so I really wanted a nice looking end card.

Very true yep. I mean when I look back on the drawings I made a couple years ago I can tell I improved, but I'm still not satisfied where I am today XD But yeah you're right, that pretty much goes for any field ^^
Yuunarii Aug 7, 8:08 AM
I know right. It's pretty much like: "Hey can I make an appointment with you regarding [something you need to talk about]"
"Oww sure I have time next month". Not that extreme of course, but.. You get the idea.

Oww no no no, it's just something I personally felt like trying out. And.. Seeing how I'm lazy I don't feel like looking for alternatives, seeing how I've gotten pretty familiar with jQuery.
Oww looks nice so far ^^ Damn, 9 years of coding? That's a long time O.o Personally I only have about 2 years of experience (all from college related stuff). Though I do have 8 years of digital drawing experience ^^ And about 10 years of video editing (though my skills in both fields are still a bit iffy XD)

Ah I see ^^ Meh.. Personally I lack that drive to continuously keep improving my coding skills, my passion lays more with drawing and visual communication/video stuff.

True.. Over here every student does have their own "education guide person" sorta like a mentor (idk the exact english translation), but they don't really do much, unless you yourself go up to them and ask for help (say, you're struggling with something). Though then again, it's pretty hard getting a hold of these people, as they're pretty much busy 24/7, so if you need their help, they almost never have time. I haven't spoken to my mentor person in like.. A year or so XD
Yeah there's this one guy who's in my project group for semester 3 and 4, and he failed both semesters on the IT part of the learning goals. Which is really weird cause.. I'm pretty sure he's better at coding than I am (though I do know he's not the best at documenting).. So yeah..

True yep.. Especially when you're sure it's suppose to be working. Hell, I've even had times where the teacher came in to help out and even they couldn't figure out why it wasn't working.
Well.. We don't really get taught jQuery, but it's something I personally like to use, as it's a loooot easier to work with than raw javascript. I did a jQuery and CSS animation story project back in semester 3 ^^ Pretty much all the stuff regarding coding you learn in college all comes down to self teaching, watching tutorials, etc. Aside from semester 1, where you do get classes in that sort of stuff, to understand the basics of programming (we started out with C#). As for HTML and CSS, they basically threw a book at us and were like: Just.. Make a website.. You can use the book for help.

Uhm.. I do have some stuff put up online but there's nothing that I'm like.. SUPER proud of XD Most websites I started working on were just purely made for showing portfolio related stuff. So.. Yeah.. I've been meaning to make my own "professional" portfolio website, but I'm just waaaay too picky when it comes to the design, as I don't want the standard one-page, minimalistic type of website. I want it to be somewhat.. Cutesy.. But also professional.. Basically it needs to reflect me. I have made a start on it, but.. It's faaaar from finished.
Yuunarii Aug 7, 6:21 AM
Ah I see, that sucks yeah. Our college tries to refrain from tests like that as much as possible, as to the teachers it's important you actually understand what you're doing and are capable of applying said knowledge, rather than just cram a bunch of theory in your head for a test.
And wtf that's indeed really biased D: Then again, it's the same way with grading here. This one guy got completely destroyed by one of the teachers when showing his learning portfolio (getting a lot of harsh criticism that was pretty much just all nitpicking), meanwhile me: "You had an amazing portfolio, very well written [insert some very minor criticism]."

Yeah.. Especially when you get stuck creating a web application, and you keep getting errors.. Here at IT & Media Design we mainly focus on front end development (only briefly touching upon back-end stuff during semester 2, where we had to build our own CMS). Front-end isn't THAT awful to do, as long as it isn't about coding web applications, I mostly enjoy doing the basic HTML, CSS and Javascript/jQuery stuff, and make websites look pretty :D

I hope so... I already showed them a lot of the work I've produced (both college stuff I made and my non-college stuff), so.. They kinda have an indication of what I can do... So.. Lets just hope for the best XD And thank you ^^
Yuunarii Aug 7, 5:11 AM
Ah that sucks.. Yeah here at my college we tend to only have 1 "exam" each semester, all the way at the end. There's a set number of learning goals you need to pass by the end of the semester. The way you do this is by creating a giant portfolio/documentation thingy where you write down what you've learned throughout the semester in regards to each learning goal, and show evidence. Imo it's a bit of a flawed way of juging students, as a large part of you passing will be determined how well you explained yourself within your "learning portfolio". If you're awful at writing/describing things, you're kinda screwed ^^; That, plus teachers tend to be pretty biased (personally I just happen to be lucky being be able to write documentation pretty well, plus teachers just overal like me, though I do feel really bad whenever I see other classmates get low grades despite them working just as hard as me :c)

Hmm.. I wouldn't say I HATE it but... It's not my fav part nope XD I mean, I'm pretty decent at web based coding and stuff, but it's sooooo boring and mentally draining. But yeah, I already firmly told my contact person at the company that I'd rather keep the IT part of the intership as tiny as possible.

It's mainly because I've never had a job before, neither have I done an internship before, so I'm really scared of what's to come. So I have no idea what to expect.. I'm mainly afraid the company will have too high of expectations of me and leave me to do stuff all on my own.
Yuunarii Aug 7, 4:32 AM
No problem ^^

Ah that really sucks. My college luckily closes for about 5 weeks (though in reality we usually we often have about 7 weeks of summer holidays, as the last weeks of the semester often don't have any classes anymore).
Not looking forward to the upcoming semester though... 5 months of internship..
Yuunarii Aug 7, 2:42 AM
Hmm.. I mainly only checked for Nendoroids there. But generally they charge like 5000 yen... They do have a loooot of stuff though :o
Suruga-Ya tends to sell secondhand items for a pretty good price. They also often have timesales, where certain items will have a discount for 24 hours (sometimes up to 1000 yen discount). Over time, if an item doesn't get sold, they tend to lower the price, so.. That's pretty awesome too ^^
I also recommend browsing Otamart. I know some proxy services also buy stuff from that site. Otamart is mainly a mobile based flea market type website, that mainly focuses on anime/weeb stuff. You often can get good deals there :D Especially seeing how lots of sellers there will pay for the shipping themselves.
Aside from those I also know Fril and Mercari are fleamarket type websites, though they sadly don't allow proxy shopping sites to purchase items from there :c

Ah I see. Yeah college/university tends to take up a lot of your spare time.. Which is why I'm trying to use my summer holidays as efficient as possible right now XD

And thank you very much ^^
Yuunarii Aug 6, 4:54 PM
Oww awesome. I've gone to the Mandarake website before, but imo they're a bit expensive. You can get some reaaaally good deals on Suruga-Ya though (I bought like half my nendoroids there). Especially since they don't have a domestic shipping fee for stuff over 1200 yen.
And yep very true, Japanese people tend to take really good care of their belongings ^^ I mean.. They even go as far as labeling stuff that only has like... A tiny piece broken off as "junk".. Like WTF Japan.
But yeah.. I'd muuuuch rather pay like half the price for a second-hand product that still looks as good as new, that might have a slightly damaged box, instead of buying a brand new product for an insane price.

Hmmm.. I stopped buying after volume 17 cause I got a bit bored by it... Aside from that I own volumes 1 to 6 of Pandora Hearts which I bought a couple years ago (still need to read them though.. Oops..).
Hmm. personally I don't really watch all that much anime anymore, as most of my spare time is taken up by working on drawings, or Youtube videos.
Yuunarii Aug 6, 4:35 PM
I do yep ^^ I'd also love to own some of the fumofumo plushies, though they tend to be really expensive. And thanks ^^ I mostly get all my nendoroids off of Japanese second hand websites, or Yahoo auctions, using a proxy shopping service. So I usually get my nendoroids quite cheaply (usually between 20 and 30-ish euros)
I'm also still on the hunt for this one particular Pachirisu plushie...

Oww damn you have a looooot of stuff. Oww and I own Soul Eater volumes 1 to 17 as well ^^
Yuunarii Aug 6, 4:03 PM
Just happened to check my messages XD

Currently I own 10. 9 of them being Touhou nendoroids (though I still wanna buy Youmu and Sakuya). Though aside of that I don't own much anime/weeb merch.
Yuunarii Aug 6, 3:42 PM
Hi ^^ And thank you ^^

Oww that's awesome! :D Personally I own quite a bit of Touhou merch too. Most of it being nendoroids ^^
