    if I do transition into graphic design

    I don't think I will have a portfolio ready by May, which is when I hoped to quit

    this is a sad realization

    there's no reason you couldn't have a portfolio ready

    I mean, I know you're busy being a new dad and married and stuff

    but if you hunker down and cut your leisure time out to focus on it, you would absolutely have something to show for it in five months

    I have a big project at work through April

    also I am learning about the stuff

    like the grid theory and the white space and the color and whatnot

    saying you could give 2 shits or could care less implies the opposite of what you're trying to express and only makes sense as a backwards colloquialism

    /english nerds

    I agree with care less, but if you use the term "shit" to mean a meaningless quantity of caring, it still works.

    But whatevs, like I really give a shit either way.

    It's just funny because it implies, in my opinion, important things scare us into pooping.

    We know it is important or meaningful on the amount of fecal matter we produce.

    also skippy not to be a turd but aside from sort of having an interest, do you know how to do it/are you any good at it

    my assumption is you'd need several years if starting from scratch to become talented enough to produce a portfolio that can snag you a decent job

    but i know nothing about the creative arts industries so i am totes hypothesizing

    I really wish I'd gone to see Merzbow when he played a pub here. It would have been amazing.

    What do you do at that sort of show? Is it like a just hang out and drink affair?

    I really don't know.

    Especially since the other friend that would be playing too makes more upbeat electronic music. Like... do you dance until the noise starts and then just sit down while your brain is assaulted by sound waves?

    The only noise shows I've been to was mostly people standing around with their arms crossed nodding along in silent appreciation. It's typically a "people there for the music" affair. The crowd is probably the same as what you'd get at most other harsh underground shows.

    I'd recommend bringing earplugs.

    I'd be down to do the tourist thing if you wanted to and take you sightseeing

    visit the aquarium if you've got an urge to look at penguins

    or catch a movie or go eating

    or a quiet night in and I'd make food and maybe you'd take your clothes of afterwards

    I don't have to "try" to be a good host.

    yes so it is kind of a vague interest right now

    I have a small amount of experience in illustrator and more in photoshop, and have designed things at work before and made graphics and stuff

    and I have built some websites although that was typically design lite (more on the coding side)

    so you are absolutely right, which is why I am trying to study up on the theory underlying the profession

    my thought for how I might make the transition is as follows:

    find a small agency, pitch them that I am an intern-level designer but a professional on the written comms side of things

    so they should hire me and pay me X to do design half time and comms half time

    where X is a salary that is more than they would pay a design intern, but less than they would pay a comms guy

    if you came by, norwegian hospitality would be invite you for coffee at the very least. So if you go somewhere you know a lot of people remember that you will be having a looot of crackers and biscuits and crumpets and cakes and waffles and candy and coffee.
