The real life side is pretty damn good. I actually took a vacation to go meet my gf and her family in Georgia back in June. Aside from our lingo sounding like something out of star trek (I will admit this much, I pretty much the whitest black guy ever/geeked out). Lol I got a lot of experience from their family and relatives because everyone I was around works in the field I want to be successful in. I learned massive amounts of information on design, traditional media, and even filming and graphic animation engines like MAYA.
As for the present day, moving soon. I can't really complain otherwise, my night shifts are when I'm really up though since I pull 36 hours on the weekdends. usually its just me sitting there from 6am - 6pm watching the clock, waiting for phone calls. Thats pretty much the jist, I got a job for a car service in my town. Boss gives you the choice of what you make by the night or to be paid hourly, I chose hourly. Though I doubt there will be much work due to the hurricane/tropical storm surfing up the coast to NJ (where I'm from and live currently).
