Sometimes I think the only thing I know how to truly do is draw.
That's unfair and untrue of course, I teach with stats that are almost all on the 95-100% bracket. I youth work and can read a room of 100 kids and know where to stand to be most effective - where the trouble might be or who looks like they need to talk. I organise events for 50+ students to work in a range of places, demonstrating tablet art and touch screen apps. In the most recent residential trip the college did I managed to place 49 people in sharing rooms right first time with only one change needed... I've become a bit of a ninja at that side of things and the students and I have comfortably shown our skills in front of a million people over the past two years.
But the least good thing? Paperwork. Excel just makes me feel queasy and sick so I avoid it.
And the second least good thing? Ofsted are in my college this week. And, as good as I am at the things I'm good at, I know I'll be judged on the things I am not. I am an elephant being judged on his climbing skills.
I've been in most days this week (a lovely sunny half term) sorting, printing and tidying. But this morning I just needed a five minute drawing break. Hence this:
Drawn on iPad mini 2 using Adobe's experimental Eazel app. It's not for everyone, and it can't do everything, but as an interface it's unique and fascinating.
And, of course, coffee. There's been a lot of that.
