I spent most of today at university, picking up more readers, researching for projects, attending tutorials, signing up for the Student Union and generally becoming a proper tertiary scholar. It’s all a little bewildering and intrepid but mostly exciting and great fun. And I love that I can take study breaks next door in the gallery, sketching the displays such as the two Nicholas below (though technically one is a Nikolaus).
First day of university for me, and I was up early. Not for classes mind, they don’t start until 4pm, but for the plumber who was coming around to fix my leaky kitchen pipes. I went into uni early anyway, to pick up my readers, investigate the library, and draw in the Gallery next door. Preparation for class, of course. 😉
The new, or rather old, gas heater is warming up the lounge room a treat, as opposed to the new(er) electric one that doesn’t do much other than blow air about. So much for all this modern technology…
I’ve been rather slack on the posting again, haven’t I. Sorry about that, but at least I now have my printer/scanner so the images will be slightly better.
*phew*, have made it to Adelaide and picked up the keys to my new house. It was a pretty long drive, leaving at 07:00 Victorian time and arriving 15:00 South Australian time. I stopped off at Mt Gambier, then again at Keith and Talem Bend for sketching breaks. This one is v.quick sketch of the bend in the Murray River.
