Lee’s Birthday twenty first August

It was Lee’s thirty eighth birthday in August. When he and I first acquired collectively, he was about to have fun his 18th birthday. His mam purchased him an enormous chocolate fudge cake and he ate three quarters of it, I swear. We have had a great deal of good instances on his birthday since. We frequently go away however we determined to not this 12 months as we had been going away the week after (which I am going to weblog, clearly!). Lee solely advised me a couple of issues to purchase so I purchased him these after which some aftershave and a few chocolate too, which he all the time likes. The aftershave is Davidoff Cool Water, which I LOVE on him. 

Lee determined he wish to go swimming. We had been going to Hathersage lido, however their swimming instances go on the market at 6am every morning and are all the time bought out by the point I get to look! So we determined we’d go to Barnsley Metrodome. It is a huge leisure pool and after we appeared, you needed to guide an arrival time and you then acquired 90 minutes to swim, which appeared nice to us. So we booked for 10am, that means we principally simply acquired up, fed the cats, and went into city. You had been imagined to arrive “seashore prepared” that means along with your costume on, so we simply stripped and acquired into the pool.

It wasn’t too busy and it was SO LOVELY to be in a swimming pool. We hadn’t been because the finish of February and MISS swimming a lot. We often go to the gymnasium no less than as soon as per week and often guide holidays with swimming pools, so we have actually missed it. It was so pretty to launch myself into water. There is a huge leisure pool with a wave machine so we acquired to play within the waves a couple of instances, and there is a lane pool, so we went in there to swim all the way down to the deep finish a few instances. They’re linked with a shallow space that has bubble jets in it, so we sat there for a bit too. It was SO a lot enjoyable. However I knew that my physique would actually damage afterwards and certainly it did.

We acquired into the automobile nonetheless moist, sitting on towels and plastic luggage to cease the automobile from getting moist. We went residence, the place the cats needed to eat us (what’s it about chlorine), had showers, and headed again out once more to the White Rose Centre the place we had been assembly my mum and stepdad for lunch.

They have not been inside a restaurant since earlier than lockdown. My stepdad would in all probability get Covid actually badly and as my mum has nonetheless been working 3 days per week, they’ve actually restricted their publicity by simply staying at residence at the same time as lockdown has eased. We had talked about consuming outdoors, however not one of the eating places within the White Rose had been doing that (despite the fact that a few of them in “The Village” have tabled outdoors? So they may!). However Wagamama wasn’t very busy and we had been in a position to get a desk by the door which my mum and stepdad had been pleased with. We had been distant from others, so that they had been completely satisfied. 

My mum has been to Wagamama earlier than, a few years in the past with me, however my stepdad by no means had. I knew they want a few of it, although. I beneficial they struggle the steamed buns and the gyoza, as a result of they’re scrumptious and folks are inclined to take pleasure in them. They went for different stuff too and so they LOVED it. My stepdad acquired katsu curry and stated it was actually scrumptious, he was actually completely satisfied to attempt it and stated he needed to return and take a look at another issues in there. 

I went for bang bang cauliflower (one in every of my favorite dishes ANYWHERE), the steamed vegan buns, and the avant gard’n which I’ve had earlier than. It is a vegan bowl with an “egg”, rice, sticky seitan, edamame beans and extra. I completely loved it. My mum needed to make a few alterations to her meals and the employees had been very prepared to do this, which is nice. 

We even had dessert! I would not usually in there but it surely was an important day in spite of everything. I had salted caramel ice cream which was very nice. We weren’t rushed out of the desk and by the tip there was solely us and a few different tables in there, so it was pretty.

My mum purchased Lee a brand new WOK! That is very thrilling! We have not had one for ages and often use a frying pan for every little thing, however since I went veggie I have been pondering we may do with a wok once more. 

Lee and I had stated we would buy groceries after lunch, but it surely was after 3pm and we had been each knackered, so we determined to simply go residence. The kittens had been clearly completely satisfied to see us, and I had slightly nap as I used to be very drained. I would been going by means of some well being stuff and never feeling nicely.

We watched a movie collectively later after which Lee needed to play one in every of his new video video games, in order that was nice! A low key birthday however nonetheless a pleasant one I hope.

I used to be sporting my Lindy Bop blue polka dotted costume which I like. My picture is that includes Jasmine!

Is Huge Information Corrupting the U.S. Election Course of?

As the 2020 election cycle ramps up, voters can expect a flurry of targeted advertisements fueled by big data on their doorsteps, inboxes and social media feeds. While microtargeting based on demographic information is not a new trend in campaign strategy, campaigns traditionally relied on analyzing voter behavior within broader categories such as age or gender before big data was easily accessible.

●本書特色
  ◎從心態及觀念養成開始,1-5分鐘,新手也能立馬上手的「立中式速繪教學」。
  ◎58部插圖教學影片免費下載,新手可一步步反覆學習,書末更附有作品集供創作者參考。
  ◎3大章節、逾200張速繪圖,講解觀察人物技巧、速繪重點及提升風格的小撇步。
速繪人物的基礎三堂課:
  ➊ 建立正確的心態
  不要想畫「正確」,而是要「輕鬆地多畫一些」,
  所謂的觀察力,只是「知識」和「經驗」的累積,
  熟悉自然就會,真的畫不出來的時候,只觀察也行。
  因為#魅力十足的圖,和技巧或常識毫無關係。#
  藉由觀察獲得的經驗和記憶,會轉換成「現實感」並活在作品中。
  不斷畫速繪,就能培養出短時間內掌握特徵的能力。
 
  ➋ 練習簡單畫全身的速繪技巧▁▁火柴人練習
  ⑴ 將全身分成15個部位,
  用2D畫全身,
  「頭 部、胸部、骨盤」是橢圓形。
  「上臂、下臂、大腿、小腿、手、腳」是線條。
  用D字形畫胸廓、軀幹和髖部,塑造印象,
  部位和部位之間留下空白,
  就能輕鬆畫出姿勢。
 
  ⑵ 注意基本結構,不要注意輪廓和細節
  看全身:那個人在做什麼?你有什麼感覺?
  看部位:位置和傾斜度?有什麼功用?
  簡單大膽地畫,鎖定在動作和使用身體的方式。
 
  ⑶ 立體化
  畫出火柴人的2D表現方式,稱作Shape,
  接下來要把平面添加立體的資訊,
  讓Shape有厚度(深度),
  只要畫出縱向的中心線,以及表示膨度的橫向曲線,
  就能變成有厚度和方向性的立體物。
 
  ⑷ 創造不對稱平衡
  全身的節奏和動線是一種流線感。
  盡量避免線條左右對稱,
  大原則是:弧線的對面必然是直線。
 
  ➌掌握印象,最後的風格和情緒添加
  這個人正在做¬「什麼」(動作)?他有「什麼樣」的感受(感情)?
  動作和感情,就是本書所說的動態。
  習慣用少量線條畫全身的思考方式後,就加入動線(flow)的觀點吧!
  不同的曲線會流暢地引導視線。
  彎度深的曲線會用慢節奏,彎度淺的曲線會用快節奏來引導視線。
  將線條加上粗細,就會產生強弱,成為更有趣味性的圖。
 
  本書從心態建立到步驟教學,
  不到20秒就能完成一幅速繪,
  附上58張速繪插圖影片,
  從空白至完稿,一筆一畫的繪畫過程全呈現,
  供學習者一遍一遍觀看臨摹,
  零基礎也沒問題。
 
  每次畫的速繪都是僅有一次的體驗,
  是當下你所能畫出的線條所構成的,
  請輕鬆享受速繪的樂趣吧!

Design College students’ Summer season Break

With summer break fast approaching, graphic design students like me are trying to figure out productive ways to spend their time. Work for money? Work for experience? Summer classes?

I’ve spent the past few months doing everything I can to
find an internship this summer. Finding a company that isn’t an MLM and will
actually pay good money for your design work is tough. Luckily, graphic design
is a field that’s in demand, so there are a lot of good options out there.

The other option for getting design experience during the summer
break is freelance work, but that comes with its own slew of issues. There’s
nothing worse than beginning to work with a client and getting excited for a
project just for them to look at you with a face like the Surprised Pikachu Meme
when you start to discuss cost.

With two weeks left in the semester, here’s hoping we figure
something out soon!
