Today was slightly eventful. I started off my morning with the most ridiculous lecture on Adobe Acrobat, lasting two hours. I took video for your amusement. See the bottom of the post for a clip from the most boring lecture of all time.
I gave my presentation shortly afterward--went fine I suppose. Derek informed us that Ecommo (the company I did the branding project for) decided not to use any of our designs, but they want to contact me to do a branding book for them since they liked my work so much. It's not everything, but at least it's something.
Most importantly::::: I went to my first dance class at Dancebase in Grassmarket today! I was quite nervous, seeing as I couldn't even figure out how to open the door to the changing room. ha. I haven't taken a dance class in almost 4 years, and I'm fatter with a smoking habit now. It turned out to be great though. There was only one boy in the class, and he was a bit intimidating. His arms were like machine guns, ha.
It was "contemporary," so it was a bit of modern-style jazz. We danced to a live guitar player (very cool), and most of it was stuff I remembered. I'm a bit stiff with my movements, but it's hard to throw your head around when you're just learning the footwork. I'm looking forward to making it a regular thing. It's nice to get sweaty and not feel like you are being tortured as you do when running on a treadmill. Maybe I'll meet a handsome straight dance boy and finally pull in the UK.
HA. In my dreams.
Afterward, a girl named Jane told me I should go to the class on Wednesday afternoons. Supposedly, it's less modern and a bit more stage. Sounds good to me. I'll have to see how my legs feel in the morning. I've already got a blister forming.
Please try to imagine this lasting for 2 hours. Feel my pain?
