Week off and new goals

Hi guys!

You are probably wondering where week 9 is for my Mystery Afghan CAL. Well, I took a break this week.With the field trip I didn’t really get time to have any crochet done and I also have to finish the birthday present for my friend (her birthday was yesterday and we are celebrating today!).

 Little bulbasaur is all finished and ready for his new home! I also attached a string a the top so the necklace/bag hanger is complete!

I have also completed my first MOOC on the rise of superheroes from the Smithsonian, I will post my drawings in here later. Some of the art/stories submitted by the other participants were pretty amazing!

I was happy I pulled through and did all the assignments in time, so I decided to challenge myself a bit more, so I am now enrolled to the Think. Create. Code.  course from  university of Adelaide. You have probably guessed it, it’s a programming course and it is mainly focused on digital art creation.

Here are a few screenshots of what I have coded so far for the course.

Also, because we have entered the last quarter of the year, I have decided to make a list of what I want to achieve for the end of the year:

CRAFTS

• Finish my CAL (should be done in 2 weeks – posts on Friday).

• Find another WIP to post every Friday when the CAL is completed (already have a few ideas!).

•  Post regular updates of my Edx programming course (Mondays).

• Craft Christmas presents and cute decorations for our first Christmas in our house (we went to my parents’ last year).

PERSONAL

• Prepare my itinerary for Europe next July.

• Finish preparations for my wedding next year.

• Go to the gym at least twice a week (my aqua gym classes have been cancelled, so I need to find something else I like to do).

WORK

• Finish writing my second paper for my PhD.

• Keep my LinkedIn and ResearchGate profiles up to date.

What do you have planned for the end of 2015?

Welcome spring!

Howdy everyone!

It is the first of September, which means winter is officially over. Yay! I’ve got a few exciting things planned for this month, I am going on the Great BarrierReef and it is my birthday on the 21st.  I’m also going to go dress shopping for my wedding next year (that should be fun!) and I have plenty of craft projects I’d like to do.

I am currently testing out cross stitch on clothes, because one of my friends’s birthday in October. She loves Pokemon (so do I) so I’ll cross stitch her favourite Pokemon on a shirt for her. I’m currently doing Gengar on a tank top (getting ready for summer!)

On another note, I’m enrolled in this massive open online course on edX on superheroes (nothing to do with my PhD on fish immunology but I love superheroes so I HAD to do this!) it’s really fun and it’s great for creativity as we have to create our own super hero! Here is a little preview of the introduction of my hero black raptor.

I know it’s a bit cheesy but I had fun drawing that! So I might be posting some more pictures of my “comic” later on as the course continues.

Have a lovely week everyone!
