Overview- covering my first day’s experience, looking at hands on material of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 and the Vaio X. I just got home after a slightly uncomfortable afternoon. By uncomfortable, I mean I was sweating profusely and had a terrible headache (still recovering from shitty weekend cold). This was during my first class, with an introduction to counselling. A few things to note about today- I am one of two boys (actually one of one, because the other lad will be only in the practicum component) in a class of fourteen. Its actually kind of bizarre having no male connection at all in the classroom. Apparently only females want to be educational psychologists/therapists. Very odd. Another really neat thing is that I will be working in a clinic the next eight months, and will have my own cases, whilst shadowing a registered psychologist! I am very excited about this, I had no idea that it would be starting so fast! It looks like I will be spending a lot of time on campus, doing work on both the clinic and reading (I already have two papers! Woohoo! Very excited to read them). Finally, next week we are building forts. Our homework is to bring materials to build a fort out of. Wow.
Finally, just look at that Vaio X! Unbelievably thin and just amazingly light. Look at the bottom base- its the same thickness as a VGA plug! WOW! The Intel Atom CPU incidentally is not finalized, so it is possible that a Celeron Ultra Low Voltage processor may be up in the works. When I really thought about it, the day long battery life is probably worth the severe power loss with an Intel Atom. Just imagine not having to search for a plug on campus. Ever. Bloody fantastic.
The opening picture is the X2. OMG. I’m a big fan of the SE X2 in case you haven’t noticed, so I will post just a few pictures of what I believe will be a fantastic phone. It is unfortunately tainted by the UI lag that its predecessor held, due to the Windows Mobile operating system. Overall, just a beautiful phone.
Also final note- Photoshop Lightroom 2 is amazing! What I edit in one photo can be copied and pasted onto the other photos! This means that if one setting applied well with one photo of a set, the rest of the set doesn’t have to be meticulously pondered over, as it is with the first! Effing ace! So much tiem saved and the level of detail I can edit with is astounding. I finally feel like a photographer and not just a snap shooter.
