Hello everyone, I am Ivan. What can i say about myself? This is my senior and (I hope) year in CityTech. I transferred here from Lehman college in the Bronx, mainly because it was too far and out of my way. I have been here for a number of years already and overall my experience in this school is positive. I met a lot of great people and had many good professors and hopefully the few i have left to meet will be just as good as the ones i have met already.
My background is in computer programming and engineer. I am from the city and have been there most of my life. I have lived in Brooklyn in the past but Manhattan seems to resonate with me a lot better. 3D modeling and animation is my passion. It is what i did for most of my life. When i got into college after my first year i transferred colleges and decided it was time for change. I got into 3D modeling and animation and i have not looked back since. It is very different from but also very similar to what i did in the past. Overall i like it better and it’s a lot more exciting. 3D modeling is not an easy thing to master or get into so it tends to suck up a lot of my time, but it’s well worth it.
I like to sleep, eat, walk around, the usual stuff. I do not watch a lot of TV, but from time to time i watch some tv shows on my computer. I walk to school because it seems like a lot more fun than riding the train and it is probably the only exercise I get throughout the day. I also like to walk up the stairs (even all the way to the 11th floor) because I am very impatient and hate waiting for the elevators. I tend read a lot but don’t write very often. Sometimes i read too much and stay up a lot later than i should. This usually ends up with me waking up feeling groggy in the morning and too tired to do anything, but it’s well worth it. I enjoy language, learning about it and using it and hope this class will help me improve my writing.
I hope to take away a lot from this class. I am not looking to become some New York Times best selling author, but if i need to do some serious writing i hope to be able to. I want to take away from this course as much as i can. I want to better understand technical writing even though i honestly think i won’t need to use it at all in the career paths i have planned for myself. You can never have too many skills though.
I am looking forward to this semester and can’t wait to see all the new things i can learn!
