Designing whilst Midterming

Take a look. New design. Not a single graphic serves as a structural or content element. Every piece is in type. I have additional bits of type-based elements I’m going to toss into the works, but – after midterms.

I’ve oodles of bugs to work through with various nooks and crannies, and I need to reconstruct the archives and categories in full, but – after midterms.

I’ve a midterm exam due tonight – two and a half hours on Old Testament history. This has been one of the most interesting courses I’ve had in a long time.  I’m drafting up outlines right and left, watching lectures, etc. I’ve two book critiques I want to finish this week as well.

I’m horrible at this distance class concept. I deliberately chose a program which demands just as rigorous a schedule as an on-campus program, and it’s still a fantastic way to fill a year overseas. The result is something much closer to the British tutorial system. Independent diligence is not my strong suit! The internet isn’t making things any easier. The connection here in town, thanks to the rainy season, is skipping out constantly. I’ll get online after much tedium, it’ll be dirt slow, and then it’ll disappear again. Not great for Blackboard and its hogging of the broadly bandying net-wit. Here’s hoping I keep the net long enough to take the test!

In reality, I’m lucky that so much of South America has internet at all…
