I find myself asking God why he didn't bless me with talents. I don't really draw. I'm not really a writer. I manage to convince only myself that I can sing. The only dance I can probably do justice to is the chicken dance. The only talent I have in the kitchen is eating (And I'm greeeaaat at that!!!;P) I'm not that much a photographer(yet!) either.

But if dreaming were a talent, I think I'm rather good at it. I'd own it. I have such ambition, it gets overwhelming sometimes... ...On second thought, naaah. I'm not even sure about what I want lately. :)) I just know I want to travel and learn to juggle ;P and be the best I can be in whatever I do, which primarily, for now, is photography.

...And that brings me to finally starting Project 365. I've been wanting to start that since early this year but this and that... now I'm finally going to do it!:D today's shots was taken just around the dorm. okay, it's 2. just can't decide which sucks less.;P

At the end of 365 days, maybe 730 or 995 or 4 years (did I even do the math right?:P) I wish wish wish to be a talented photographer. *First, I wish I can commit to it. haha. I wish. I wish... I must! I shall! I should!.. really!.... will probably post succeeding photos to my tumblr account.

Am Baaaccckkk!:D

I know. I know. I said I'd catch up with ze blog in my last post.. but butttt. finals came up.. and.. sleepless nights.. and projects.. and cups and cups of caffeine to survive.. and more projects.. and painting and drawing and designing.. and more and more projects. and totally burning out andddd..

oh well. that was last term. I don't think I've recovered from the stress. butttt oh wellll. moving on.:D

Ok. I must admit I had fun last term! I now like drawing! and want to really learn painting! I just got pushed to my very limit during the finals week. some of my final plates:

3 point perspective

4 pairs of eyes, and 4 each for lips, ears, and noses

self-portrait. :D *I don't really know how to shade yet. So karla fixed it (Thanksss karlaloo!:D)

our final plate. nude, rendered in pencil, ink and colored pencil. 
This plate weighed 50% of our final grade so I was pretty pressured about it. Thankfully I had a lot of friends to help me out. They gave me a guide to copy the shading from!:D I liked how it turned out, except for the ink part. I don't remember how I really ended up doing it, but thankfully karla(again! thank youuu Karlaloo) fixed it. :D

Before freehand, I've never really considered drawing. I thought it's either you've got the talent or you don't. And really, I didn't. But I did my plates! I passed them all! With some help, definitely, but I toiled and pushed myself for each and every plate(unless Karlaloo intervened.;P). wee! and now I'm just excited to learn more! maybe I'll try pirouetting next! or nose-twitching or maybe writing with my eyes closed! ;P

We had an exhibit for our finals in Visuali. I wasn't really proud of my works yet, but here they are:

for emotion. 

for architecture.

for nostalgia. 
Waaa! the dean asked for this photo to be part of the student "legacy". I don't remember what he specifically had in mind but he said it will be posted somewhere. and when I come back 10, or 20 years from now, I'll find it and get to point at it and say, "I did that!" weeee! I still get high when I remember it. yipee!!!\:D/

On that note, I'm getting ready for a new term!.. I hope. \:D/
