Catch Up Olympics

This blog is just one of the things I have to play catch up with. Again. I'm dyinggggg... My plates are drowning me. I know I just won't make it if I don’t play the games asap. So here’s me convincing myself to just get up and do it. *whoooo!

My uninspired plate for desprin. X.x I had a funner, more colorful album design(that’s supposed represent us) in mind, but as I was doing it yesterday, color and fun just didn’t feel “me”. I chose the split complimentary color scheme. I should have used darker shades though. I wanted it to show how I'm too drained to be who I want to be. I know I could’ve done a lot more with it, but I didn’t want to risk ruining it. Great. Now, I'm playing safe. X.x waaa. I’m now slapping myself to cut the drama out. Still slapping. Still slapping. . . ….ok. done. Ow. My cheeks hurt.:P

All that’s left to do is keep moving forward. Let the catch up olympics begin!!! *fingers crossed I win.

If not, everdearestsodearever family, I hope you read this before my funeral. ‘cause I want you to tell everyone, if anyone would come that I don’t want flowers please. I want chocolates. Preferably dark. With almonds. Please. Thank you.

Break!. . . please?

I’d like to think life is finally about to catch up with me and my plates. But my sketchpads and bristol boards scream otherwise. --.

Busy. Busy. Busy. I don’t like that word. Draw! Paint! Design! Now, these works I(’m starting to really) like better. But for 5 different subjects, they just take too much time!! Making me . .Busy. Busy. Busy. That word again!._.

I’ve been pretending I was/were(?) a robot, that didn’t need sleep the past few days ‘cause I wanted to have time to slow down and think about my shots for my finals. but apparently that's not possible. the slowing down part at least. ._. No sleep. Pardon the robot lag/zombie mode. :P

I haven't really thought about my shots yet (am soo dead). But right now, what my mind is filled with isss…as an art school, why do we run on trimester??? Haven’t they ever heard that you can’t rush art? I mean really. I didn’t think I’d enjoy drawing and painting as much as I do. But it’s the load/week that weighs me down. Art is supposed to be fun.. but all the rush, minus all the sleep makes it seem like work, when it's supposed to be more of play. (Am I making sense?--,)

-ze robot's failed attempt at tessellation. ._. really must not rush art. Really should finish plates. Really need sleep. Really need a break.

In 6 Words

I’m a junior. If things go as planned, It should be my senior year too, sort of(course should only be for 3 years). Thankfully, plans don’t work out 'cause our chair said that we might have to extend our stay. >:)

One of the latest missions in Amy K.R.'s blog is to write your story in 6 words, I think mine would be,

Pretty Big dreamer, what to do?
*from weheartit.com

I know I like to push myself to do whatever best I can in whatever I do. But I don’t really know what I’ll want to do yet. Photography, yes. Which field? dunno. Is there a very decent paying career for life observing? Cloud-shape spotting? art-appreciating? good book reading? sleeping? shopping? food tasting? bugging friends? at least before I figure out what I really want to do at least?;P There is a home for the aged, could there be a home for the clueless too?:D


I've wanted to blog about a lot of things lately but haven't done so 'cause I haven't made this birthday post. ._.

Sooooo. . . .

Well, I've been pretty drained from the routine (cramming) midterms week set for me. So I really wanted to do things differently for my birthday. For one, I wanted to get up early. My sister obliged!:)

She bought me breakfast, then we got a mani-pedi, lunch and shoe shopping! Weee! 
Unfortunately, I got so caught up with the excitement of my birthday, I forgot to take pictures. x.x Photographer fail. Thankfully, I have a stalker room mate for the pm!;D **next photos are courtesy of my stalker, I mean photojournalistic room mate Karlaloo.. ;D

Don't I just have the most awesome room mates?:) *shall I say room mate one more time?:P They didn't go home for the weekend and they braved the heavy rains for my birthday.. :D:D:D

I didn't know what I specifically wanted to do on my birthday. .there are a lot I could think of but I don't want to cram it all in one day like last year. I wanted a slow, relaxed, happy birthday this year. So I didn't really plan anything 'cause I didn't know what I'd feel like doing for the day. THE day came, and Inception it was!:D Loved it!! Totally Racked my brain! Must see it again!!!:D

*soo paparazzi. :))

Ate Rhia wanted Falafel so Gl4 it was. . .We were so not hungry!
*see my eyes? that's the look of the girl who's about to steal her friend's falafel. :)) I so wanted that but I've just been used to having spaghetti for my birthday, I didn't want to break the tradition. ..Noodles for long life! Ever since I was a kid I never wanted to cut my noodles, 'cause obviously it meant cutting life short, obviously. :P

of course they had to buy me qoolah!!!<3

Anddddd then, my surprise! Weee! I specifically requested Karlaloo to surprise me. hahaha. but I still don't have the gift she promised me for last year so I didn't see the transfomations of my space and the gifts when we get home - coming. :P
*the making. :P


. .One of my best college buddies stopped by just to give me cupcakes too!

I mentioned I wanted an adventure, and an adventure she prepared for me!<3
Did I mention I loved it?
not just the adventure part, but the unfolding and the making of the adventure too! Karlaloo, if you're reading this.. you know what I mean.. righhhtttttt?:))

I really missed my other family and friends.. Thanks to the internet, there was the video from my hs best friends.<3 and then the overwhelming FB greetings, and the specially crafted messages! and the late greetings that extended my birthday, even earlier messages that somehow advanced it!<333

Why don't we celebrate birthdays with monthsaries or even just every half-a-year! like happy half-birthday!!!:D there are half sizes for shoes! why not birthdays???:P

Note to my supposedly more mature, 19yy self: stop being such a student (Stop ze procrastinating! ok, more realistically: limit it!!!:PP)
