I mentioned that our daughter is in college these days. Her second year now. Classes are harder this year and she's wondering if she made the right field choice. We have told her that sometimes there are classes that you have to get through and it will tie together better later, but she also needs to weigh if this is the field where she wants to put in that investment. She's mentioned dropping one of this classes and taking at the community college, because she thinks it will be easier there. It might be, but she won't learn as much. If she's just trying to find a short cut, then that's a clue that maybe it's not the right field. Part of our suggestions was that maybe she should focus on general education classes next semester and think about where she's going in the future.
The community college has two levels of ceramics classes, and I'm taking the first of those. We have mostly been making cups and bowls on the wheel and then glazing them. For me anyway, the wheel takes a lot of practice and I've had a hard time getting decent-looking objects out of it.
I used to add the date after the blog subject, but I don't remember why, so I guess it's time to stop that if there's not a reason for it.
