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.

Have you tried beading big, beady rings?

I wouldn't know where to start with rings and I haven't yet found any decent patterns I can try to give me ideas.
