Hi, hi, hi.
First of all, before I launch into the pages I've made in response to the Learn Something New Every Day projects from shimelle.com I'd like to just say thank you to all those who took time to comment on my previous post - the Stampotique layout from the Art from the Heart blog hop.
I received the most comments I've ever had on a post. And I wasn't even giving anything away! I was a little bit overwhelmed at the response. Still am really.
Some of the remarks left in those comments have really got me thinking .... so you should anticipate plenty of future posts arising from all the food for though you gave me and ideally there'd be a series or a class thrown in there too ... but we'll have to see how that goes!
For now, I just wanted to thank you for taking time to let me know you liked my work. I am grateful for each and every comment I receive. Thank you.
OK then onwards ...
School holds no great warm memories for me ... but learning ... learning is possibly my favourite thing ever! I don't think I've ranted here recently about how one of the BEST things about my job at University is that I get to sit in on lectures. I attended a full degree's worth of Animation lectures and seminars, have years worth of Games lectures under my belt with a touch of Law, Sociology, Computer Science and Management modules on the side. [But he sooner we forget about that one terrifying hour of Graphical Mathematics ... the better.]
And, as much as I've gate-crashed lots of other people's studies, I've taken plenty of night-classes and Summer courses for myself where I've learned about everything from spreadsheets to screenwriting.
So, to combat the 'Urgh, it's Autumn' feeling I often get and to celebrate my love of life-long learning I decided to join in with Shimelle's LSNED idea.
I sat down for a good proportion of last weekend pre-preparing most of my pages, putting in a basic structure of paper etc leaving space to add photos and images and more personalised wording once I sit down to write each day's unique lesson after it happens!
Where I've used photographs they've simply been printed with a PoGo.
Sept 1: 'Wan go beach?'
Which might just make it into today's journal entry ...
