Mostly money, I was at the Kubert School and between having Epiliepsy THEN and not being able to finish he wouldn't help land a job.

I'm sorry to hear about the Epiliepsy. My mother has it, and it can be a b*tch.
Back in the early 80s, I seriously considered the Kubert School. If it had been closer to
Minnesota, I just might have. It's three years of training, right, but not an actual degree?
Or has the School become accredited? How far did you get through the program, and is
the epilepsy keeping you from finishing, or just the money?

I ended up getting "more serious" degrees in mathematics and computer science, and later
releashed my more creative side into a writing degree (or two or three ;\-\) ). I became a
professional student. Now, I manage to use ALL of my schooling in teaching computer
students about networks, operating systems, and technical writing. I still get a yearning to
put out a comic book, but I just don't have the time or steady hands for drawing any more.
Some day, maybe.

Best of luck in the future, Vartha.
