It’s official – I am the proud new owner of a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I actually graduated back in 2000 but at that time, my alma mater, the Ontario College of Art & Design, was offering diplomas. In 2002, they became degree granting, and in 2006 I embarked on the path to an upgrade. This summer I had to undergo a not insignificant surgery (don’t worry, I’m all healthy and good) which had me worried I would be set back by at least six months in finishing (can’t take courses in the fall – way too insanely busy at work), but I managed to squeeze in my last course just in time before going under the knife, after which I spent five weeks recovering.
Today I traded in my old diploma for a shiny new degree. Yippie!!!!!
