I spent most of today just working my way through a backlog of college work.
I spent about an hour designing a flow chart which is as complicated as it looks 😉 But it had to be done and these flow charts require real thought and hard work to get right so i was determined to sit down and get it done ASAP even though i don’t have to have it done for another 2 weeks 😉
I also put together a brief description of what my college project (website) will be about and i also started the design. Logo took about an hour to do. Getting the general layout / site design looking right took about an another hour.
I’ll most likely change my mind a million times before i settle on a final design but i do like the whole chunky / apple-type interface ‘phase’ many applications are going through. The design of course was never going to be a problem for me – i’ve lots of experience now with photoshop and more importantly i can work quickly with it and know where everything is. I’m FORCED to use asp.net though for the coding and that will no doubt result in many late nights and headaches as i’m a novice with it and obviously i’ll want to do ‘expert’ things – that’s just how i work…
I’m also not sure whether i’m ‘allowed’ blog about this stuff or indeed reveal demos and mock ups, but sure what the hell 😉 I wasn’t told otherwise and I can always write it off as ‘research and feedback’
So now, both eyes will turn to my skydive tomorrow… i’ll be there early and hopefully get jumping early. Only now am i really starting to put myself at the edge of the airplane door (at 10k feet) in my head, but i still don’t feel particularly nervous…
I suppose roller-coasters are the closest thing i’ve experienced to the sort of forces i’ll meet tomorrow but i enjoy roller-coasters so i’ll probably enjoy tomorrow from start to finish as well!
