Okay, maybe I was supposed to post this a week ago.   Details, details.

So, what did I memorize  this  last week?

.

When You are Old, by W.B. Yeats.

.

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

Dear Thunderbug,

Good job with the poem ‘As I Walked Out One Evening’  by W. H. Auden.  You’re still missing a couple of lines here and there when put on the spot, but the whole thing is actually memorized now.  Have yourself another cup of tea, and don’t let Shakespeare’s Henry VI  get you so worked up.  You don’t have to finish it, just move along if it bothers you.

Just  FYI

 I`m writing this to myself.

My IRL names mean “Thunder” + “Grub”

After ten years of my dad playing his favorite classical music over and over (and then whistling the tunes over and over without noticing), it became a bit much. Not that I hate the music itself or anything (I really do love it), but too much is too much.  There is a limited number on how many times I can hear Vivaldi’s Four Seasons without tiring of it, as it is with all other music.  It’s a shame, really.  Because I still love these old tunes (like Für Elise; still one of my favorites), they just don’t resonate right.

Can’t believe how stupid I am…

Today, I almost ruined THREE of my four blogs, all in LESS than 2 minutes! Wow, what talent I show.  What’s next?  Deleting all my posts?  PLEASE don’t let that happen!  Gah, the last three hours have been spent on re-writing all my codings and widgets.  On the plus side;  This blog looks fantastic now!   Maybe not so very different from before, but I added some nifty little stuff like those links with pictures (see left bar) and some small do-dads.   I`m proud.

Idag har vi fortsatt med arbeidet på oppgavene, og jeg fullførte fotokopien fra tirsdag, samt fikset litt mer på hodet nedenfor.  Mer fornøyd med skyggene nå.

Idag hadde jeg mitt første møte med croquis-tegning på skolen! (For dere som aldri har hørt ordet før, sjekk Wikipedia.) Kort fortalt, så er det ekstremt hurtige skisser, gjerne på under 30 sekunder hver. Modellen skifter posisjon etter så-og-så mange sekunder, og ny sketch skal igang fort. Veldig fort. Så fort at du nesten ikke rekker å se ned på arket ditt engang, for du prøver febrilsk å få med deg alle de store detaljene du kan. Resulatet blir veldig ukritiske skisser, og det er viktig å legge vekt på de formene som på bildet gjøres om til en spesifikk bevegelse. Tror jeg. Jeg er ikke 100% sikker på hva som var leksa, det eneste jeg husker var at det var veldig gøy, og en genial start på dagen! Jeg håper læreren vår vil gjøre dette til fast oppvarming, for det var absolutt fenomenalt femmenalt !

.

Noen av disse ble laget på bare 15 sekunder(!).  Vi hadde kun et enkelt A2-ark å jobbe på, så vi fant ut at det var en god idè å bytte på fargestiftene underveis for å skille hver sketch.  (Og ja, det var meningen å fylle arket helt.)
