Drawing, and learning software related to Multimedia,  make me want to wake up each morning. Also, having the opportunity to study a second career as part of a double major is a great blessing... Learning new things fill my day with purpose and helps me learn more about myself.
My new love is Basic Computer programming...!
I had to "scratch" !!!!  join us! was created to stimulate the non programmer to learn the basics in a fun, accesible way!
I enjoy immensely throwing ceramics pieces  on an electric wheel. It looks easy but it is not so..., especially when you try to throw tall pieces. But, as with all  things in life, it is a matter of patience & practice.  Ceramics is a very therapeutically hobby.
Tennis has always been my favorite sport.  I'm a beginner but I don't care.  I have fun playing with others, and also practicing on my own at the wall on  the racquetball court at the UNF arena.

I'm on my senior year at University of North Florida (UNF) where I studied Computer Graphics.  Eventhough I already finished with the required courses for Graphic Design,  now I'm extending my undergrad-degree to combine Graphic Design, Psychology and Public Health courses to create an interdisciplinary degree, with a concentration in Computer Graphics and a Minor in Psychology, as a bridge for future master studies on Art Theraphy.

At UNF, some of the classes I have enjoyed learning are:  Statistics ,   Research Methods LabMedical Language

Coursera is another way I like to learn. I have 2 certificate from the University of Edinburgh  (Scotland): " Fundamentals of Music Theory  and  Intro to Computer Coding  (Introduction to Programing) where I learned to do childrens' video games. It combined coding and drawing.

My latest certificate it's from CALARTS , a course about the Fundamentals of Graphic Design
Learning  CSS and drawing using java  ( at Khanacademy.org) have helped me to make more use of the left side of my brain,  while  my hobbies below have for a long time helped me get in touch with the right-side. I like to learn a little bit of everything ; )

M hobbies include activities such as:  needle work, ceramics, drawing / Doodling and writing. I also enjoy drawing music , & playing tennis and playing piano.

A while ago, I finished Mark Ari's Writer's Workshop at UNF   where we  create exercises combining imagery &  writing.
I like poetry. My favorite poem: "Chronology" by Diane di Prima which is written in memory of a dead child and how his/her absence is felt through out their house. By the way, I just discovered NeilGaiman's (poem-video) "Instructions" and made me feel right at home.  Here is the text of  Neil Gaiman's poem.
