I'm not quite sure how we're into the final week of September already, but we are, and that means that:
- next Sunday I'll be blogging My Month in Numbers so, if you're planning to join in, you've still got time to draft a post and list some September statistics;
- I'm about to begin working on Easter projects for a craft magazine. Easter. There are people out there worrying that it's too early to start mentioning Christmas cards ... and I've gone through the frosty festivities and am now out the other side... where it should be getting warmer and sunnier soon... in fact, it'll be September again any minute now ...;
- so I'd better be quick and make sure I blog all of my Learn Something New Everyday pages [a class hosted each September by Shimelle Laine] ...
On the back of the card I wrote down 10 things I've learned from my University job - which should have been easy. During the last 6 years there I've learned countless facts while attending hundreds of lectures on everything from animated walk-cycles to the law of tort ... so you think I'd be able to bring to mind at least 10 actual lessons ... but it was actually the moments I've had with students which leapt to mind first.
This is not necessarily because I'm a sentimental old fool ... but possibly related the fact that
, as long as I make accurate notes at the time ... I don't actually need to remember anything at all! That's not my job ... it's the student's!
overheard conversations ... but it never hurts to be reminded. This particular quality material came from listening into some old, rather posh, gents at a nearby table in a restaurant ... and it made me wish that [a] I had included a notebook in my clutch bag along with my lipstick ... and [b] that etiquette would have allowed me to write in it!
OK, so I've now blogged days 1-14 ... I'll best go and take more photos so I can share 15 ... and onwards.
I'll be back tomorrow to share how I'm actually storing my 30 recipe cards, so I'll see you then.
There are 3 kits in the shop based around the supplies I've used in my LSNED journal. You can click the photo to visit the shop for more information:
