I is smart me

Clearly deciding my brain is bored I've been giving it a few challenges this week...

Challenge 1 - Learn how to use Flash and Action Script properly.

I seemed to have re-awoken my coding skills that I'd assumed were left at Uni because I actually get and can understand Action Script. I already knew how to use the basics of Flash by I'd never dived into the scripting side of it before. I still need some guidance because I don't remember all the script yet and, well, I've only been doing this for two days, but I amazed that I can actually write things. In fact with a reference book by my side I reckon I could now do a whole website in Flash. Which is scary stuff.

It also proves I learnt things at Uni because although this is a different programming language, all those base skills and concepts are coming back to me.

Challenge 2 - Attempt some crazy beading projects.

I don't usually like beading on wire but I've taken the plunge to try out something a little different. I will post pictures if it comes out any good and I don't go all 'Hulk Smash!' on it out of frustration. It's one of those things were you end up repeating a pattern and it takes you a few goes to get it, so the first few look crap and the last ones better s you end up going back and undoing the first few again...

In any case, my brain feels better. I feel like I've actually done something with my week off and not just wasted it, which makes me oddly feel much better about life.
