If I wanted to stay a part-time student the entire way—opening up more hours for game development and Udemy-, YouTube-, and/or Coursera-sharpened self-learning (especially for specialty skills like game-making software)—I could adapt a compact schedule with less end-goals.
For instance, if I focus on the following, I can complete all necessary coursework by the end of 2021:
- AA Art History (Clovis; complete, just need to apply)
- AS Information Systems: Web Design (Clovis)
- AS Computer Information Tech: Web Development (FCC)
- Certificate Entrepreneurial Ventures (FCC)
- Teach 10 units
- English 1A + 205
- English 1A online
- Study 8 units
- Intro to Entrepreneurship at Clovis
- Yoga at Madera
Given the spring semester starts in a few weeks, I don’t have much longer to deliberate on this. I’ve been thinking about it for awhile, though. I’ve made spreadsheets and Word documents.
Hatha Yoga, Marketing, Intro to Management, or Human Relations at FCC, plus Game Development (i.e., Unity) at Clovis.
- Hatha Yoga at FCC (unless completed in the summer)
- Client and Server Databases at FCC
- Beginning Go Language Programming at FCC
- Word Processing at Clovis
- Beginning Java Programming at FCC
- Spreadsheet Fundamentals at Clovis
- Photoshop: Digital Visual Art at Madera
I’m at a precipice where I have to make decisions, like when I backed out of the cyber security program to return to web development coursework. But I think, this compact approach—where I’m balancing teaching and classes under 18-19 units—is a good idea, so I have more time to invest in fey.earth.
I like that better than the heavyweight schedule I posted last time.
