The Study Situation 2011
Ever wonder what happened to this semester?
If you were reading this blog regularly like you should be doing then you should be wondering. ;) I signed up for Web Design, Basic / Digital images & Web Development... I think it was. Turns out I did manage to sneak in two of the courses I chose earlier and thought were too late to accept, so it all went well in the end.
This semester I'm studying creative writing. Personal narrative, detective fiction & science fiction are the three genres. I've already ordered 16 big ass books to read through, but they're all good books so I don't mind. I was happy to find I,Robot & Into The Wild among them as I've seen the movies. I liked the movies too, and if I liked the movie then I must like the book, pure logic.
I read one of Maddox posts recently on how bad I, Robot is, compared to the book in terms of commercialism, and since the movie was great IMHO this fills me with endless expectations on the readable variant. Gotta get started!
Apart from these three literary courses I'm also learning about photographical manipulations & enhancement of digital pictures. Should be useful. Before Christmas I studied multimedia, but actually I didn't study shit, I planned and thought a lot and tried to start getting a couple of old courses done that have been hanging around forever, but they're both so boring I don't know if I'll ever make it. I did plenty of other work apart from studies though, mind you, but I'm making up for the lost time by studying more than full-time this brand new shining year.
Btw, I've been skimming through old posts checking for typos and other things and I came across Universal, the first post I posted about my university studies. It was back in September 2007 and that's good to know because I've been wondering when I started studying and how long it's been since then. I have the answer now. Four years, damn.... time flies. Anyhow, when all else fails, there's always the blogs. ;)
