Random thoughts on various topics

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 22, 2010, 4:32 PM
Funny things are happening. I applied for teaching college and didn't get in and it has left me with time to think and look at things that I have never before considered. Paths less travelled. I don't suppose the downturn has helped my chances. Then a few other design related jobs have come along and people say: "why not look at that as a possibility?" But teaching is what i want to do so I will wait and try, try again. With extra time you are left to wonder what are other people are doing now. I try to occupy myself with various things. I've written them down here so you can pester me into doing some of them.


This has really taken off of late with the completion of various major projects that I have to say I am quite pleased with.

I have started to use InDesign and it has made it so much easier! I was using Photoshop last year to produce a programme and ended up with about 20x10 layers with one group for each page. Now one big easy document although the colouring is a bit off.  But there are still things to do. Concepts to draw up. Ideas on things to draw welcome....


I would like to get back to taking more photographs. So to start that I'm going to take my camera most places I go. Hopefully I will get some good shots and if you are lucky I shall post some here.... Anybody with any creative ideas or inspirational tips they are very welcome!


As you may or may not know I studied music in college. I want to get better and the only way is through practice.  I also want to start to write some music. Ideas in my head mainly. I think them up while I'm walking but by the time I get home they are all gone...


A while back I created a website and had various problems along the way. Yesterday I completed another one and as they say it was much easier the second time around.  

Now moving on to my third, currently in the design phase, I have a greater understanding on what to do and what not to do.  It is still a work in progress and also technically I haven't been asked to do it yet but helps to be prepared.  

I wish I was back in college....

My name is Thomas. I'm a recent graduate of University College Dublin with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music and Geography. I love Music, Photography and Art.

At the moment for the photography end of things I'm into macrophotography and I suppose that you could say that this is centred around flowers.

I'm also really big into Graphic design and am the designer for the UCD Symphony Orchestra. I have also created posters for various posters and graphics for UCD School of music and also for charities such as "Chacara".

My goal in life however lies in teaching in a Primary school (ages 4-13) in Ireland. Right now I am hoping to apply for a course in teaching in August. Wish me luck!

Seeing that you last upload was well back in 2010, I don't know if you're still active, but I just wanted to let you know that I love the coloring of Calvin and Hobbes strips that you did. I definitely wish you did more.
