Well, it might be by the time I actually post this but for right now it's really late Thursday night. My internet has been spotty all day (and I'm getting genuinely pissed about it. If Comcast doesn't fix it when they come out on Wednesday I'll tell them to pull the plug and I'll find some other service provider who can! I don't pay for internet to only get it about half the freakin' time!)
Anyway, so I'm finally on and promptly got blown off by wyckhurst and xenologue for a game of Literati. Is it so unreasonable to want to play at 11:30 at night? (oh, wait, it is.) So, rather than do the smart thing and go to bed myself I'm going to be enjoying my access while I've got it.
So without further ado, here's the Friday Five.
1. Are you going to school this year?
Nope. I am doing extra life drawing on Mondays and I still need to go up to the Institute and sign up for a Tuesday class. I'd like to save some coin and see if I can find some 3D classes. I know I just need a little bit of handholding and I'll be able to rock.
2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?
I graduated in spring of 2000. My how the time flies.
3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?
Art and drama. In high school I rather enjoyed English and AP Biology.
4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?
It's always been math.
I feel bad about that now. I'd like to find some classes called "So you hated math as a kid but want to learn how to do it as an adult." I feel like I'm not as rounded a person (save the wisecracks please, I'm trying to be a runner now,) as I'd like to be. Plus according to elfs without knowing math I'm doomed to hell.
5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?
At Bethware it was Mrs. Brown. She encouraged me greatly in my artistic pursuits. She also let me look at the furniture section of the Sears wishbook the year I got obsessed over beds with drawers.
At FHJ it was Mrs. Langston who also encouraged me and let me run wild on the yearbook staff.
She also didn't nag too much at me for being an abysmal sewer and occassionally didn't take my comic books away.
At DHS it was Ms. Sayler (and yes, that's where I got that from.) She was a terrific teacher who did terrific things and let me (heck, she would have been disappointed if I didn't,) do cartoons for each one of my AP Biology labs.
At Weber I had this anthropology teacher, Dr. Harrington. I'm still trying to track her down. I had some really good conversations with her about things other than anthropology and cartooning...though she DID give me an A when I handed in my final paper to her in medical anthropology in comic book format.
At Sheridan, hands down it was Ellen Besen. (hiiiii Elleeeennnnn!) She sent me in an artistic direction that previously hadn't really occurred to me. I'm still trying to make some particular dreams into realities but I don't think they'd even really be dreams without her influence. Plus she gave me A+'s in animation history. Man, I adored that class.
