I was sad to discover that I look less 'sexy librarian' and more 'thelma from scooby doo'.
March was a funny month for me. I'd been struggling with working at computer for a while as I began to notice there was something not quite right with my vision. Its partly the reason I haven't posted anything in a while as typing for any length of time has been giving me bad headaches.
At first I just put it down to eye strain but as things weren't getting any better I booked myself in for an eye test, and discovered that I have one eye mildly shortsighted and one mildly longsighted. And basically its confusing my brain. Hardly a superhero skill, is it?
Anyways, I have new specs now though my brain still hasn't adapted...
suddenly everyones wearing glasses
Excuses for not blogging aside, heres a rush job I did last week for an education supplement with The Guardian
It was sort of a complicated brief. I had to illustrate the ideas laid out in an flowchart type infographic created by the QCA regarding reform to the school curriculum... basically about a broader types of subjects, flexible teaching for each student, and more involvement within the community, etc
I think originally the flowchart was going to be printed then pulled, hence the 24 hour deadline. With this amount of detail it would have been handy to have a little more time, but sometimes it's good just to get your head down and get on with it.
It's all different then when I was a school and I had to double check all the subject abbreviations... there was no 'D&T' or 'Citizenship' when I was at high school and French was just French and not 'Modern Foriegn Languages'. Apparently Mandarin is the MFL of choice these days.
At my school there was just a lot of metalwork and home economics...oh and secretarial studies. I still have no idea where the home keys are though.
