Words, Illustrations and Faces

sunshine.gifTypography this morning where the Tutor is English and very amusing, it should be fun. Met a few more people and had quite a satisfactory gathering in the break.

Digital Design is the class I’m trying to wrangle my way out of in terms of excemptions – today I got a taster. I honestly think I’d be okay in ‘going without’ although I’d have to crash teach myself some Adobe Illustrator skills.

Our first class was on Illustrator, apparently Photoshop will follow. She with no prior experience gets the one computer that hates it’s user. Oh it logged me on, but I couldn’t access anything or get online after two clicks or copy and paste. Really weird. Anyway after finally convincing the tutor that I really had restarted and relogged back in about five times, he worked out that there was some girl in our class that didn’t belong there. She got kicked out, I got her computer. Things were right with the world.

Illustrator is fiddly and will take a bit of getting used to. I can see myself (or whoever) doing extremely cool stuff with it, but after the computer fiasco, I didn’t have the patience. That’s something else I have to do before next week.

Then I was waiting at the train station and this random guy comes up and asks if I got my extension. What? I only half recognised his face and didn’t really have much of a clue at all. I think I established that he had his appointment straight after me and probably had to wait because I was late (among other things). They bumped him straight to second year. “Second years are all rather cliquey”. Perhaps he was lonely? Ho hum. Bit random. Nice guy, with a name I can’t fully remember. Something like Hu Wei.

Tired again. My own fault – she who stays up til all hours only to have to get up at 6am deserves to be.
