Well, I've done it. I went over to the dark side. I am now on "new" blogger. We'll see if it's new and improved blogger...

By the way, in case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm back from London and back at school for a new semester. London was awesome, and I think I've bored everyone around here with my pictures and stories. All that remains is to bore you all as well. :^) When I got home, I uploaded all the photos I'd taken into iPhoto, then deleted the really bad ones--blurry, took one of the sidewalk, etc. Raw photos, there were around 1200 of them. After editing, there were 900 left. I had the 230 or so best ones printed to show around to everyone. I plan to set up a flickr account to show all of the photos. I need to get to that sometime this weekend, I guess...

I have three classes this semester, in addition to getting the final project done for the study abroad thing. I am taking Sculpture I, Design IV (systems design--it has to do with packaging and branding, I think), and Web, in which I will learn Dreamweaver and Flash. We've already started learning Dreamweaver, and I just downloaded both programs onto my computer. I hope that this class will be easier than some of the others I've taken--my hope is that my blogging experience will come into play with HTML and such. We'll see... Sculpture is intimidating me a bit, since I'm really becoming a 2D kind of girl. We had to do workup sketches of what we wanted to do in our 1st sculpture, which will be made of plaster over a wire mesh form. We had to show what all sides of the piece would look like. Now, I'm pretty good at drawing pretty much anything I can see, but making up something out of whole cloth and showing what all sides will look like is something that sort of stumps me. Fortunately, I have a very good relationship with the teacher. He's one of the "old guard"; in fact, I had him for a drawing class the last time I was at EKU, about 25 years ago. His son now teaches in the art department as well.

Speaking of new things in the art department, one of my teachers has announced her retirement after who knows how many years. She's the head of the graphic design department, and the bane of most of our existence. She's actually pretty nice outside of class, but not so much in class. While none of us are really sorry to see her go, I think that we all hope that she will have a good life outside of academia. She says she plans to become one of those eBay sellers, and she will probably make a mint at that.

I promise that there will be stories of my time in London later, but I've told them so many times in the "real world" now that I need a bit of a break from that for a few days. Soon, very soon...
