I got sleep last night. Not a party in sight. Can't say the same for tonight, but I will get to that in a moment.

I had to go through university regulations today, and also some study skills on the library and academic resources training. Nothing too bad. Got another practical and quiz tomorrow, which should be fun, then just a meeting on Wednesday and off to EGX London on Thursday.

Tonight though...my flatmates offered me a shot glass of fruit juice. Guys, that just murdered all possible trust by offering me a spiked drink and it also makes me feel really insecure in my home.

I am actually wanting to go home right now.

Do you want to design a computer game? Wow! I'd love to play it!

Ah, I hope you get more sleep now, sleep is good for you. But I know how bad it is when there is loud music whilst you are trying to sleep.

Wait, so the highest in 70%? Does that mean no-one can get higher?

Nah, he said that 70% is the highest grade that can be expected. It is possible to go beyond, but it's extremely rare.

I have disappeared from here. As apology, please accept this cheery picture.

70% is First Class. My personal tutor got 80%-90% which was the highest in the whole university when he was there.

I will update this tomorrow...when all 4 of my classes are past. Long days. 10-6 every Monday and Tuesday plus the 48 hours work outside of lectures and practicals is quite a lot.

If you are my cherry bomb then I don't like fruit. Anyway...



All 4 classes done for the week, two full days as opposed to my flatmates with 4/5 short days. So, a full list of assessments, tasks, and general stuff to happen comes next probably tomorrow.



Here it is. My week in lectures.

Introduction to Web Development

A short introduction to what we will be doing. HTML/5, CSS/3 and scripting, without use of Dreamweaver. All from hand this time. How exciting. We have to review some existing websites in terms of colours, layout, usability and such, and I think I /might/ know a certain site in my firing line.

Games Production

Another short task. Review an existing puzzle game, see our assignment and make a game using a few physical assets to present next week. Just a short puzzle game you can play on your desk. Granted pebbles, playing cards, dominoes and dice aren't the best but oh well. Work with what you have.

Introduction to 3D Modelling

We got a show around the basics of 3DS Max, which is modeling software, and were given the task of using the software to model a toy train using only the primitive shapes, such as spheres, cubes etc. My attempt was pretty good, better than many others apparently, and can be viewed below. Might turn the lighting down a bit next time...

Creative Skills for Design

This was a tutorial on Photoshop, which by the way is NOT friendly for a first time user. Once you get used to it though, the results can be quite interesting. We had to use layering to our advantage and for the second image we had an ice lolly we could do anything with. The results were....interesting.... Personally, I like the third one. No prizes for why.
