The pressure, undergrad classes & upcoming courses
21.09.2010 14 °C
As mentioned before I am attending undergrad (Bachelor) courses on Product visualization (using Kerkythea 3D rendering software + Rhinoceros 4) and one on semiotics of user interface design (strictly taught in Soumi!) at Savonia Design Academy.(If you did not know, you are new here; you got lots of reading to do-> go make popcorns! :D)
Its fun and challenging being in an undergrad learning environment here. Mostly because of the language barrier, most times I just come with an article to read and sit there pretending to be attentive (hey! dont judge me, its frustrating!). The semiotics module is tiresome because EVERY week we have an assignment to present..sometimes twice a week! Shucks! And to add to that the lecturer gave me his teaching slideshow to translate in my own comfort area...well, its 566 slides long! Go figure! The 3D rendering module is also taught in Soumi but practical and the software is in English so its easy for me to follow the instructor's mouse pointer on projector and create whatever he is teaching us! nice things we doing there! Below are some of my works so far:
The problem is that the Academy is far from where I stay! I think I ride for over a kilometer (maybe 2?!) to class every morning! And that just stresses me at times and affects my research stamina. And my courses on public health and stuff are about to begin next week!
I know I will survive, they did not nickname me Kratos for nothing! hehehe.....
