Ringling College of Art & Design!!!

Ringling College...
Its the one of Art college which is famous in Computer Animation Major.
And this is the one where I attend Right now!
At High school Senior year, I decided to go Art School, because I love drawing and designing and If I can get a job on what I love to do, I was sure that I can be the best on it. I was so interested in Animation majors and I heard a lot of Art Schools that they are famous with Animations. But Some Teacher and my family advice me about  Animation majors. What they told me is that Traditional Animation is now going down and it will be hard to earn lot of money if I try to work on there. And they suggest me about Computer Animation. So, I found the Ringling College of Art and Design, which is the best in Computer Animation and it also close to my uncle's house where I lived 3 yr during High school.
After I decided to admit Ringling College, I was thinking to choose Computer Animation Major. Because It was the most famous major in Ringling and It also looks fun to me. However
when I write the application, I saw the new major, Game Art& Design, and I got interested in that major. Game Art& Design was in the Computer Animation Major, but Ringling college Divided them to two majors(Computer Animation and Game Art&Design). So, I decided choose Game Art& Design and Admitted as a Game Art&Design student. And I accepted as a Freshman in Ringling College of Art and Design. When I knew that I got in Ringling college first time I was so happy because it was only college I put my application.

 Now, its almost end of First year in Ringling college and I might be not comeback to school for 2 years, because of Military Service in Korea. I had too much fun in this place and met lot of awesome Friends. I never had this much fun in my life... So, I will miss this place a lot... and I will miss all my friends in here, too... Even if I never been other art school, what I think about the Ringling College of Art and Design is the best art school ever.

Introduce Ma-Self!

My Name is 'KON KIM'


I'm '20' years old (in 2009)

I'm going college in 'SARASOTA, FL'

I'm attending "Ringling College of Art & Design"

My Major is 'Game Art & Design'

 I was born in Seoul and Grow up in korean small town Gang-neung*
From K-garden to 8th grade I lived in Gang-neung.

 Gang-neung was small town, but I had good experiences in there.
I got lots of friends, and town was next to East Sea of Korea, so I could see a lot of sea animals and could eat lots of sea foods( I LOVE SUSI& SASIMI)
I also learned how to swim. I begin swimming when I was kinder garden and I stopped at 2nd grade, because my swimming coach moved to another city. When I became 3rd grade, I gained a lot of weight. I think it was because I stopped my only exercise, swimming.

 When I become 7th grade, I was really fat. the reason why I got fat was stress. I got a lot of pressure from educational system in korea, and I keep ate a lot of food when I got stress. Korean Educational system, it makes all korean teenager study too much and get rid of free time for them. (In Middle School, we have some free time, but we spend all that time to get private institute.) 

 Whatever, when I become 9th grade, I moved to capital of Korea, Seoul* I was still fat at that time and I was extremely shy boy. because of those things, I had hard time during 9th grade. I didn't have much friends and I spend lot of time to play computer game and watching Comic books. I also had hard time to get used to be in Seoul, because it was so different with small town Gang-neung. After graduate middle school( which is finished 9th grade in korea), I finally got used to be in Seoul and I entered the high school. It was not bad time when I was in 10th grade, and I made some good friends.

 When I become 11th Grade, I lost little bit of weight. And after 1st semester of 11th Grade I decided to go study abroad. And I went to Florida. Because my uncle(mom's brother) lived in town called 'bradenton'. I went school, Bradenton Academy, and I restart from 10th grade, because I was not good at English. I still had shy personality, but I got changed by experiencing
high school life in Bradenton and my uncle's effort. I also loss a lot of weight because I started doing exercise. In korea, I didn't have time to do much exercise, but in U.S. I had a lot of free time. 
 During 3 years in Bradenton Academy, I got changed physically  and Mentally. And Senior year, I decided to go Art school and admitted in Ringling College of Art and Design. Actually
when I was in middle school I was dreaming to be a Cartoonist. because I love to draw and watch cartoons. But my parents didn't like about that idea at that time. However, my uncle and aunts supported me and persuade my parents, and thanks to those support I could get in Ringling College of Art and Design.

This is my Life before Ringling College.
