    Indeed. I haven't used Python for around 5 months (:eek:) so I think I'd better get back to that soon. Absolutely, an interest in whatever topic someone may be studying or working on definitely does help with rapid and in depth progress. :yep: Yes! :excited: Ooh, that sounds cool. What kind of art are you mainly interested in? I agree with you there about the construction of websites! Ohh I understand now; yes, codecademy is very accessible. Fair enough. Have you been to Japan before then?
    I am confident that you'll be able to pick up quickly, where you left off. :yep: I enjoy both traditional art and digital art, however - I prefer traditional art and using mediums such as using inks, watercolour paints, oil paints, fineliner pens etc. I love drawing architecture, and take inspiration from buildings such as the Chrysler Building to draw my own cities. Unfortunately, I have never visited Japan; it looks as though it is an awesome country! :yep:

    Good good, aww! Hopefully you no longer feel this way? It's very tough getting through education, and work too I'd imagine, especially with the addition of mental health issues. You've done it now so I think we should be proud of how far you've come as opposed to how short you fell behind your expectations/ambitions. Besides, it sounds like you are doing well at the moment? Indeed, independent study does some to really be the main success factor for sixth form. I'm yet to do as much as I'd find ideal but anything is progress at this stage, I think. Ohh, I see. Yes, the exams do seem to be a lot longer. Hopefully it won't be too bad. :crossedf: I can imagine it's slightly laid back in art, but quite stressful when approaching the last couple of hours? I didn't do art so I wouldn't really know. At KS3, I did take ages to do any art related activity though.

    Thanks, I'll try to. You keep up the great work too!

    I'm alright thanks - I haven't got much to do apart from homework and revision. The rest of my family went out shopping earlier so it was nice to actually have some peace and quiet.
    How have you been today?

    If I am honest, things are not great but they are not terribly bad either; having lifelong mental health conditions, I just have to take things a day at a time, if that makes sense. Thank you, it is very kind of you to state that! :hugs: Yes, you are making excellent progress, in my opinion - after all, sixth form/college is not at all easy, and definitely is accompanied by challenges. Indeed, what subjects are you studying? Yes, I can definitely relate to taking a lengthy amount of time to complete pieces of art, if they are completed at all - I rarely completed artwork at school, as it would entail a great deal of detail and I am generally a slow worker; despite having a passion for art, I find it hard to concentrate, but with medication, am able to concentrate a bit better, these days. :yep:

    Thank you, that is very nice of you to state!

    It sounds as though you receive a vast amount of homework/revision to complete, try to take breaks every so often; as to recalibrate your brain and allow you to focus on the work a little longer, although make sure you don't burn yourself out, revision-wise! Often, it is best to work in a peaceful environment whilst revising, however - some people listen to music. Personally, this does not work for me, as I get too easily distracted by the music!

    I have been okay, managed to paint a watercolour painting yesterday; which was the first piece of artwork I have been able to motivate myself to do, for a month or so now. The painting consists of an purple amethyst crystal! I will see if I can do anything productive tonight, such as coding/art etc as I am really struggling with motivation at the moment.

    Aw thanks, I hope so! Ooh that sounds cool! Are you into photography much then? Nice! I was just abou to ask what kinds of drawings and paintings you like doing but architecture seems to be the answer. That does sound amazing! I've never been a fan of drawing architecture if I'm honest, but I do love looking at it! Ooh this sounds awesome! (I'm getting a bit too excited about this ) I see, I'm sure it's on your list of places to visit!

    Aww :console: Fair enough. If you ever need someone to talk to, about anything, feel free to PM/ VM me. :hugs: Yes, it really does make things that bit more difficult, but the way I see it, it helps to make the great moments of our lives even better. That does make sense to me. :yep: And no worries! :hugs: Aww thanks, Perplexing! It sure is! I'm taking maths, further maths, chemistry and physics. What are you studying? I see, are you much of a perfectionist? I am, and that was one of my greatest downfalls with art - I took too long trying to make it as "perfect" as possible, so I decided it wouldn't be a wise choice to take for GCSE - I wanted to spend time on other subjects. I'm glad to hear that!

    Aww no worries!

    It isn't necessarily a large amount of homework - I just have pieces that will take me a long time to get done. Thank you, I will bear that in mind. My issue is I do take too long revising because I think if I stop, then it won't have been enough. Recently (in the past year) I've been making sure to take breaks, but this leads to me taking breaks that are so long that they can't be classified as breaks anymore. :rofl: Yes, I just don't get a peaceful environment much at home. I just make the best of whenever it is nice and peaceful. Yes, I listen to music in my breaks (and in my "breaks" ). I get distracted by music too. :five:

    Good good. Wow, well done for getting round to doing that! Was that another architectural piece? A purple amethyst crystal? That sounds so cool! :awesome: Good luck with that!

    Yes, I also like photography; particularly macro and architectural photography. I like drawing/painting most things, with architecture being my favourite element of technical drawing. Architecture is mesmerising, isn't it? Yes, it definitely is, though I have never travelled outside of the UK, however - a visit to Japan may occur in the future.

    Aww :console: Fair enough. If you ever need someone to talk to, about anything, feel free to PM/ VM me. :hugs: Yes, it really does make things that bit more difficult, but the way I see it, it helps to make the great moments of our lives even better. That does make sense to me. :yep: And no worries! :hugs: Aww thanks, Perplexing! It sure is! I'm taking maths, further maths, chemistry and physics. What are you studying? I see, are you much of a perfectionist? I am, and that was one of my greatest downfalls with art - I took too long trying to make it as "perfect" as possible, so I decided it wouldn't be a wise choice to take for GCSE - I wanted to spend time on other subjects. I'm glad to hear that!

    Aww no worries!
    Thank you for the offer, I really appreciate it! :hugs: The image you posted regarding 'difficult journeys often lead to beautiful destinations' is so relevant, and very true indeed. I was once also told that 'as one door closes, another door opens', which bears the same amount of truth. That's understandable, and definitely resonates with me; when you're in the mindset and have the drive to continue doing the revision in a single session, it makes one reluctant to stop revising; for the reason you mentioned. :yep: Hehe, they are merely 'extended breaks'! :rofl: No problem at all! That is a good selection of subjects, particularly physics! Due to a culmination of factors, I am not currently in education, though it is a thought for the future. As for the perfectionism query? It is a resounding 'YES', I am definitely a perfectionist! Furthermore, I also encountered the same downfall with art, so I understand completely. Did you feel that the choice was right for you in the end?

    It isn't necessarily a large amount of homework - I just have pieces that will take me a long time to get done. Thank you, I will bear that in mind. My issue is I do take too long revising because I think if I stop, then it won't have been enough. Recently (in the past year) I've been making sure to take breaks, but this leads to me taking breaks that are so long that they can't be classified as breaks anymore. :rofl: Yes, I just don't get a peaceful environment much at home. I just make the best of whenever it is nice and peaceful. Yes, I listen to music in my breaks (and in my "breaks" ). I get distracted by music too. :five:

    Good good. Wow, well done for getting round to doing that! Was that another architectural piece? A purple amethyst crystal? That sounds so cool! :awesome: Good luck with that!

    380
    I understand, as I am identical in that respect; what would usually take an hour to complete for most people, would take me 6 or 7 hours. D:

    :rofl: It is the same situation in my house, due to being a member of a vast family, therefore - no quiet here, either! :five:

    Thank you! I hope you have had a good night so far!

    Wow, that does sound very cool! I'm not all too keen on the taking of photography myself, but it does seem like a lovely hobby and interest to have! I see, and has architecture always been one of your favourites? It really is very mesmerising! Just curious, have you seen the film Inception? I see, and that will be great if you do manage to go to Japan! I have only been outside the UK once, and that was a school trip to Belgium.

    Aww no worries, any time! :hugs: I see, yes, I do like that one. Yes, that is also very true. :yep: Absolutely, it's like a paradox almost. When you don't work hard enough, you need to aim to try harder. When you try harder, you need to aim to work less... Haha, I do like that - 'extended breaks'. I'll remember that for next time. :lol: Thank you! I could tell from your avatar and username that you were probably interested in physics. I'll admit that I didn't like physics when I chose it - I do like maths, so I felt it would be a good option to take in addition to it. It really has grown on me though. Fair enough, and good luck with it if you do end up back in education. I see! :five: Ohh right, it is annoying but what can you do, I guess? I do sometimes regret it because it was one of my favourite subjects and something I had a genuine passion for. For my final GCSE option, it was either going to be product design, computing or art. In the end, I went with computing and that ended up taking a lot of my time but I feel it's more valuable to me right now than art could have been - it links in nicely to D1 in further maths. So, I think it probably was a good choice to leave art there and continue in my own time.

    Haha, yes! This is exactly what it's like for me.

    Ohh I see. The idea of a large family seems lovely in the sense of a positive atmosphere being radiated as a result of it. I am very introverted though and only live with 3 other people in my house so, I don't think that kind of household would suit me well.

    Thank you! It's been alright so far. I haven't been able to get as much homework done as I had hoped (due to distractions :sigh: ) but I have done some. :yep: Hopefully you've had a good night so far too?

    It can be excellent, if you find the perfect scenario/scenery, a picturesque scene can be captured well on camera. Fundamentally, drawing architecture has not always been a favourite of mine, mainly due to the fact that until a few years ago; I had not explored the topic in depth. Whilst I have not perceived the film Inception, I have heard of it; if I recall, one of the protagonists is a character played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Is the film Inception good, and how would you rate it? Was Belgium a good place to visit, and was the architecture excellent there?

    Indeed, striking a balance is a monumental feat! Yes, indeed I am interested in physics, as well as biology and geology/geophysics. That is excellent to hear, do you anticipate pursuing a career in the sciences/maths? Thank you, that is very kind of you to state. :five: Yes, I can understand why you pursued computing in the end, as it intertwines with subjects such as physics/maths etc and has actually assisted you in D1 (further maths); has it made things easier to learn and does the content overlap?

    Haha, yes! This is exactly what it's like for me.

    It certainly is, I enjoy being part of a large family - despite also being extremely introverted myself, it is always interesting! A large household does not suit everybody, however - it is just an individual thing, I assume. :yep:

    It's okay, there is always time for you to do some and some revision is better than no revision at all. Yep, my evening has been okay!

    I see, that does sound lovely! How often do you manage to find such scenes that you are satisfied with? That's fair enough. Do you have an interest in history too then, in terms of the dating of the buildings and those historical links to the architecture? Yes, that is correct. :yep: That's very subjective, but I must say, it is one of my favourite films. It has a rather complex idea behind it and I do like the way it really gets you thinking throughout the film. Other people have said they've found it boring though, so it's up to what type of films you are interested in, I guess. Belgium was a very nice place to visit. I've always wanted to go to France too, but never have done. We drove through Calais which I found quite exciting. The trip was a history one, and all about the battlefields in and around Ypres. It was rather upsetting hearing about many of the war stories but a great exerience nevertheless. The architecture was quite interesting and really did impress me. It's a shame I don't have any pictures of them, but even many of the houses we drove past looked stunning. :yep:
    A few pictures (from Google Images ) from Ypres:
    Spoiler:

    St Martin Cathedral:

    ^We visited areas near the cathedral quite often and there was a lovely market next to it, and I really liked the general atmosphere there.

    Menin Gate:

    ^We were here for one evening and there was a little parade and memorial service done here.
    It's amazing how this particular memorial stands, and the amount of work that must have been put into this and the cathedral. This is what it looks like inside the archway:

    I don't know if you can see this, but on the walls, the names of many soldiers are engraved into them. This picture gives you a better look at it:

    The Brooding Soldier:

    ^I didn't actual go here but we drove past it. It's a Canadian memorial, and does look quite nice.

    It definitely is! Ooh that's a nice combination of interests :yep: Is there any particular part of biology you have a main interest in? I don't particularly enjoy learning about the ecosystem and technological side of things, but I do like looking at DNA and genetics. I'm hope to eventually have a career in a mathematical occupation. I mainly took the sciences to open up my options as it were. No worries. :five: Indeed, and there has been an overlap in D1, yes. Thankfully, that makes things a little easier and means I don't have to focus on certain topics as much as physics, for example. That said, there are certain topics that I really struggle with so hopefully that combination will leave me with an OK grade at the end.

    I see! Indeed, but it's good that you do like it. :yep:

    That is very true. :yy: I'm glad to hear it.

    Often - I have a tendency to photograph things in the local area - despite this, I have a broad range of photographs of natural and man made objects/buildings. With regards to the dating of buildings and the historical links to architecture, I would state yes, as I find I like buildings from the 1900s+ and gothic revival architecture (1790's+), particularly the latter, as I love the intricacies and fine details of many of the gothic cathedrals. I actually have Inception on DVD, but haven't yet managed to perceive it; thus I shall be doing that soon, upon your recommendation. Films such as those you have described, are generally very good as they are psychologically interesting films. You've been to visit/travelled through some interesting places indeed, and the experience sounds as though it was brilliant! The war stories must have been very upsetting! European buildings can be very intriguing to observe, as some of them can be very unusual, aesthetically speaking.

    Those structures you depicted in the spoiler tags, are truly magnificent!
    Yes, I am predominantly interested in human biology/anatomy; I find that to be extremely intriguing and am fascinated by it. It sounds as though a mathematical occupation would be definitely ideal for you, as you have opted for subjects that naturally involve a vast amount of mathematics! That is excellent to hear, and very wise of you to opt for the computing in the end, as it has been beneficial to your later studies. :yep: Physics can be hard at times, I know that when I pursued it at AS Level, I found some parts of it to be particularly difficult. However, I did find that quantum physics was extremely fascinating to learn! What areas of physics do you enjoy the most? I think things will be okay for you!
