Default Done and In the Industry

Well as a moderator myself I wasn't sure where to put this so yaustar if you think there is a better spot move it. Well first off I want to thank everyone on this forum who has given me advice and been there to help me with my game and just be someone to talk to. Jill thanks for letting me run rampant and have fun on here.

But now to the meat of this post. Well folks I did it after two years of hard work I graduated from Full Sail and got a job in the Industry. For more details please read my blog because I'm to lazy to retype it here. But once again thank you and I will be sticking around to help answer questions (now as an industry insider ) and keep learning from this forum.

Congratulations! You earned it!

No joke, I was just thinking to myself this morning, "I wonder how Grant's job search is going. I should drop him a line..."

Haha thanks Jill. And thanks everyone. Now I will be taking a nice three day break from computers and the internet by going to my grandparents in the middle of nowhere Indiana.

They were a friend of a friend, and the friend introduced you at a conference, and then you researched them on the internets where you discovered an articles? Or am I just being frazzle brained?

Well what I meant was it was a little bit of all of them. I had friends who worked there, I read some stuff that the guys talked about that work there. And I got some great experiences and met some people at GDC. So a little of all.
