I suppose I should take a few minutes and catch things up to date. This past week was my first full week of classes, and it's been hectic. I'm settling in and getting into the swing of things. I had forgotten how insenstive some professors can be--by "insensitive" I mean not thinking of other people's situations and such (like the fact that some of us work and live off campus--way off campus). Two of my art teachers loaded me down with homework this weekend. My drawing teacher assigned us 20 (or more) drawings, to be done using this stupid "view-finder" thing that's supposed to be a tool to help us draw better, but it ended up just getting in my way. It's a 6" square of plywood with about a 1" diameter hole drilled in the middle. We were to take a compass and make circles to represent the hole in the plywood, then hold up the view-finder and draw what's inside. He had told us at the beginning of the semester that all of our "homework" drawings would be in a sketch book and made us buy one. No problem, I can never have too many sketch books. But, at the end of class, he had us all get sheets of the paper we use in class, which are about 30"x 18". That's what we were to do our sketches on, which meant I had to go out and buy a bigass clipboard drawing surface in order to do the sketches, because he wanted outdoor sketches. I know, WHAAAAAA! I'm sure I'll use it in the future, and it was only $12, and it does fit into my portfolio, so I'll get over it.

My other teacher who gave us homework, the 3D design teacher, assigned us to find over the weekend three examples of 3D art, on campus. That meant I had to go back to campus over the weekend, another 70 mile round trip. And, it gets even better--we are supposed to post our examples on the class discussion board on Blackboard, an internet site that the college uses for such things. And, you can't have any examples that are already posted on the board. So, if you aren't the first one posting, you could be screwed. The thing is, he hasn't yet set up the discussion thread so that we can post. So it's looking like I'm gonna have to get up and get over to campus at the butt-crack of dawn, as my coworkers say, to get on a computer and post. I've taken digital photos of about 5 or 6 different examples, so that I've got some backup just in case, but I'm still not totally sure how to use Blackboard and if it will let me post links. This particular assignment is stressing me more than any other, probably because he worded it as though it was a contest. I'm far too competitive for my own good (plus I want to be first to post and not have to look for more examples). I'll be glad when this one is over.

So anyway, I'm about to head out to Common Grounds to meet Allison, who's in town for the long weekend. Btw, if you are having any trouble getting online, it's apparently Allison's fault. She told me and Matt last night that she "broke the internet". :^)
