I wish the Maths you learn in secondary school (that would be your high school I guess) was more applied and tied in to real world stuff. The stuff you learn in college is way more applied but I can see what you mean (but then again I'm repeating so what do I know). Sometimes I just feel like shaking my fist at the whole thing, but maths is freaking beautiful. Read about primes or the history of the number zero or the infitite or read simon singh's Code Book and his book on Andrew Wiles (I think that's his name) proof of Fermat's last theorem. It seems like there are no real world applications for it but if I was trying to figure out the diameter of the earth or figure out the distance from the earth to the sun I'd need trigonometry.

Dale, you'll have to help me get my GCSE, I failed maths and I'll never become a teacher until I've got it.
I love the journal, I'm planning to do the same in my next big trip around eastern europe.
I've been reading your lj for a while and you're awesome (your cat is so purring cute)
Oh, I love that you did the whole thing in a little book. That must be the nicest thing to have.
I keep trying to make books, I've stitched a couple and created kinda awkward looking paperbacks but I couldn't get the hardback thing to work at all. I ended up with glue everywhere and ruining some of my nicely stitched pages :<
Do you know of a tutorial I could follow? Or could you make one?
I need to get me some waxed thread too :B

or there are many centers/classes for book arts around the country, which you will find links to from other areas of the site :>

The moping Lucy and the resentful Linny (WET FUUD MOAR NOW) --
-- wear the same face.
I like both versions.
I have no idea what the fuck a polynomial is anymore. But I am terribly reliant on ratios and chem!
It's a lovely diary Lucy.
I just graduated a few months ago, and I took math 30 pure in my last semester- I don't remember any of it already! Although.. I am still haunted by horrible memories of attempting to understand logarithms and trig II..
I enjoyed reading your journal a lot. Also, I'd love to try and make my own notebook. Yours is so pretty! I love that orange fabric.
Loved it! I hope I get to read more travel journals in the future!
oh lucy.. that last panel totally made my day. *sigh*
What a wonderful journal, beautifully drawn and beautifully bound! I've really enjoyed reading it.
I too failed math, and me & my buddy lou would sit in our more laissez faire art classes & illustrate our conversations- tickled to see that someone else did that too!
Hey Lucy, I really enjoyed reading your Paris journal - I was drooling over the food, particularly the macarons. What a beautiful way to record your memories! Well done and all that. :)
I did have a chuckle over you loving the greasy English breakfast. You need to come and eat in Melbourne, Australia - we've made breakfast and brunch an art form! I think you'd approve! :)
I have ordered French Milk and am just waiting on it to arrive. Woo!
I'm sad to see the Paris journal end -- I loved it! Still, I know there will be plenty of new and awesome stuff to see! You are amazing and so inspiring -- every time I think, "I don't feel like doing that right now", I end up coming onto LJ, seeing all of the work you have done, and feeling incredibly lazy, lol. (That's a good thing, I swear!) You make me think, "Get moving, sister!"
Awesome. Makes me wanna go to France :)
Lucy, I'm SO impressed that you made this book for the trip and actually kept it up and finished it. Standing ovation over here, with a side of slow clap. Did it drive John nuts for you to be drawing during this vacation?
How did you attach the pages to the cover? I've always wanted to make my own notebook. I have scads of fabric lying around, all large 'scraps' that are too pretty to throw away and too small to use on clothing and I would love to use them towards something like this.
Where do you buy waxed thread as well? x'D I doubt my local JoAnns would have it.
Thanks for taking the time to make and share your trip with us. I caught it in little pieces, and today I am recovering from post-wisdom teeth removal, and was therefor able to read it all in one shot.
Glad you enjoyed yourselves and ate so many delicious things.
Making my own sketchbook is something I've always wanted to do. I just recently acquired the mania to personalize every little art supply I get, doing this would be like the ultimate personalization.
Anyway, that's a gorgeous notebook. The color combination is lovely.
OT: Is your Sexytimes poster available for sale anywhere? I saw that you had them at Brigetown in Portland, but I managed to miss the event. Thanks!
It was lovely seeing/being fabulous with you. I left a message on your FB but then I realized that it's too trendy for you (hehe) so I'd be best to leave a message here.
Keep in touch girly!
Thanks, Lila! It was wonderful seeing you, too. Must do it more often!
Are you really coming to Fallcon in MN?
Or are they just teasing me?
That would be so cool, Really looking forward to meeting you!
With bells on.
Bring it on, MN. I'm coming to draw like a mofo.
