Life In Retrogr∆de

I am an art student currently finishing off my A level studies. I usually create detailed scientific illustration to pass the time and enjoy film + digital photography.
I visited CERN to see the ATLAS detector (part of the Large Hadron Collider) September 2013.

What do you mean by your quoteoftheday? and the physics part too. ^.-

Well it’s almost the end of my A level so I’m stressing, luckily I’ve got all my film prints done, I just need to put my book together next week with writing but I have my graphics book to do + final major project. I do wish I could do a physics course but I’m not great with maths, I can do the calculations though, remember things off the top of my head and I love it.

Instead I’m shoehorning science into my art which is quite cool but I don’t think people get it in my class. I told them for my final piece I’m going to make a lion portrait out of CERN experiment parts and I just got a blank look.

But anyway I’ve been run down for the past few months with bad anxiety symptoms (explains why I haven’t been posting much) which makes me feel sick, upsets my breathing and sometimes gives me heart palpitations hence why I feel like newton on his death bed.
