Last night I started my University course. Design for web publishing!
It felt like the first day at school. Nerves. Expectation.
Does anyone remember the beautiful smell of new books?
There were no books but the Apple Imac computer made up for them. It was the first time I had worked with one of these technical marvels.
So slick compared to my work pc!
The first lesson was quite simple but very interesting. Those of us among the twenty-or-so students, who had a background knowledge of web design found a few new tricks with the Dreamweaver software.
The next lesson is on Wednesday when we'll be issued with our student card which will allow us 24-hour access to the facilities! Yeah, right!
When I came out I was horrified to find that my car was the only one left in a LOCKED car park in Middlesbrough. A frantic search for a janitor revealed that, though the car parks were not usually padlocked overnight, a new security firm that had just taken over appeared to have changed the rules.
A few phonecalls later, I was finally freed to nip into Central Park for a bowl of mussels and a tomato garlic bread to settle my nerves.
Can't wait for Wednesday!
