And So It Begins… The Exam Studying

May LavenderBright Light at 7pmMSCMM Class Notes

Thurs 05.18.06 – This was the day that I printed out the last of my class notes at our class lab and brought them all together in four big binders. On my way into town, I walked to the Luas via the TCD Botantic Gardens, which are in full bloom and the sun was peeping in and out of clouds (photo on left).
Here is how I know that Dublin is at a high latittude (53 degrees north): Bright, strong afternoon sun at 7:41pm (center photo). The sun has been setting around 9:30pm and I am told that in June it will be after 10:30pm. My mom will be very happy when she comes to visit.
Near midnight, I finally had all of my notes collated, organized, hole punched, and living in their respective binders (right photo). Now just to read it all plus finishing up my “required” book reading. I also finished reading “Photography: A Critical Introduction” (edited by Liz Wells, I highly recommend this book) on Thursday, now to finish the last chapter of Susan Sontag’s “On Photography“.
[End Thurs 05.18.06]
Sat 05.20.06 – I am currently reading Lev Manovich’s “Language of New Media“, of which I am enjoying as it is theoretically wrapping up the school year. “Actionscript for Flash 8” is up after that. Good thing that reading is one of my top 5 favorite activities of all time. ;o)
FYI: The first of the exams is on Tue. May 23rd and the last is on Fri. June 2nd. If I appear to fall of the planet, that is why.
