oh! you love sciences too? i actually am a bit nervous joining here because I'm afraid i wont fit in to this beautiful world..but i really love the arts despite art not loving back...haha thanks a lot for the welcome! let see, you cant be a sleepy, so perhaps i can call you sage... hehe
Yes, I like sciences! Actually I'm a teacher too. :D My subjects are maths and philosophy. How do you like those?
And don't worry, Shadowness is a very friendly community that welcomes new members and provides lots of inspiration and help. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, Julie. I'd be glad to help you. (That is if you don't mind asking someone who joined just two weeks ago. hehehe)
Btw, I'd be happy if you just call me Florian. I chose "sleepysage" as pseudonym because of a poem I like a lot. It's by Raymond Smullyan (a contemporary logician and mathematician) about the quintessence of Taoism:
The Sage falls asleep not
because he ought to
Nor even because he wants to
But because he is sleepy.
So, how was your day and your first experiences with Shadowness?
I'm glad to know you're a teacher too! So happy :D
I love my philosophy in college too (now, in my line of work, i seldom met people who can discuss philosophy with me) and I think I'm pretty good in Math hehehe. I actually teach biology and research in high school (so that would mean i have to also teach statistics, a bit more on application to data analysis)...
I also love literature, I have an illusion that I'm Athena in college hahaha! the lines is beautiful...so that's were sleepysage came from! So nice.
I find shadowness fascinating, though I'm a bit shy because they have created lots of beautiful artworks and i know i cant level to that. I actually spent my whole day just browsing thru shadowness the other day, and i'm kind of stunned :D I wish i can also learn to use technology to do that. I am fond of drawing and all, but looking at there works, i am completely kindergarten.
Hmmm what artwork are you doing now? Initially, i join shadowness because my student had an artwork and requested me to like it in shadowness, i have to join to like it :D But now i think I'm inspired to also try and honed my hobby which is buried amidst paper works. When I'm already tired from solving world problem (that's what my researches are hehe) i always find myself playing with Photoshop, enhancing my picture (simply re-coloring my hair or blurring unwanted marks). I've tried making my picture scaly too! hmmm i tried vector art, but i think i will have brain damage before i can get through with the tutorial hahaha
I'm sorry, i think I'm bubbling already...will, i'm a teacher you know! :D
Hi JurgenDoe! I always love beautiful artwork. i'm trying to learn too as a hobby but i'm not good. I do artwork and sketches for fun but have not published any...can i stay here? i mean, i hope i'm not blundering around some pro artists site and shame myself! Thank you very much!
