New in the Summertime
Whenever I hear the word summertime I think of Will Smith during the days of Fresh Price. Those were good days.
Seasons seem to pass exceptionally quickly when you work in an academic setting like UCLA Extension. Sure, it's spring quarter now, but on April 29 we'll start registration for summer quarter. Concurrently, I'm contacting instructors about planning for fall quarter. Fall quarter ends in December, so, in April, I'm thinking a lot about December. This does something funky to my circadian rhythms, at least psychologically.
Also, maybe the seasons pass more quickly because I'm getting older. There's also that.
Anyway, come April 29 you will see that there are FOUR newbies to the lineup. I so hope that too many people don't go on vacation! These courses seem awesome to me.
Music + Graphic Design with Lawrence Azerad, whose resume reads like a list of Rolling Stone top 100 albums of all time.
Then there is Structure and Symbolism in Design with Shirin Raban, if you're feeling archetypal and want to work with your hands, old-world style.
For online peeps, there is Design Write: Combining Keyword Research and SEO-Smart Writing with Effective Website Design with Lori Culwell, who writes both fiction and non.
Finally, there is Web 2.0 Quick Start for Designers with Charles Hollis, who works in the world of MySpace.
It's summertime! Well, not quite, but you know... soon... or at least, in my mind.
