Hey there!!! I’m really happy right now because for the past five days, I’ve been ending the day with a smile. Okay, so I’ll start with Saturday which was just an ordinary, so-so day, but it was kinda nice since I went to this friend’s debut and I got to wear this dress I bought with my mom. ♥
This is the only picture I have from that night because I’m not very close with the people who went to the party so I didn’t really feel like taking pictures. Since it was a buffet too and not a course meal, there was no point in photographing the food too.
Anyway, that was only the beginning of what’s to come.
Sunday, I didn’t leave the house. Instead, I stayed at home to finish my lifedrw plate which was to draw 100 poses by focusing on the line of action and the fluidity of the motion. That night, I chatted with my college friends and we started ranting about stupid people on this “secret files” facebook page about our school where anonymous posters would have submissions regarding people, facilities, events, etc. It’s funny ’cause a lot of those who comment on them take the post too seriously and end up just being really dumb. It’s pretty hard to explain, but basically I laughed a lot. Our topic eventually drifted from the rants to just silly stuff like parody twitter accounts and the like. It was still funny.
Monday came and since I didn’t have school that day, I woke up late. I hardly did anything but chat with my friends online. I spent the night talking with my mom and watching Aoi Honoo.
Aoi Honoo is this Japanese tv series called Blue Blazes in English. It tells the story of Honoo Moyuru, a student at Osaka’s University of Arts, and the people around him. He wants to be an animator/mangaka (he can’t make up his mind). It’s super funny and stupid ’cause he’s so full of himself but at the same time, he’s not very skilled. The other characters are equally amusing. Some parts hit hard because they’re so true!! As someone studying animation in college, I can relate to a certain extent.
Tuesday, I went for one class in school which was Aniprin (Animation Principles). I thought we were going to submit our work from the previous week and immediately start on a new one. Thankfully, WE DIDN’T!!
That night, I went to have dinner with my cousins (there were 8 of us who went–not all could go though) including a cousin of ours who had just returned from the U.S.! It was a late-dinner kind of thing and we just talked ’til the store closed.
After I arrived home, I went to my mom’s room and told her about the dinner. We just talked the whole night. I even made her do the MBTI Personality Test because I was really curious. It was the test on 16Personalities and it’s incredibly accurate!! To cut it short, we slept at around 4am.
Today, Wednesday, we both woke up around 1pm and had a late lunch. We just continued our talk about personality types and people in general. I told her about the odd people in my school and those who aren’t “well-liked” by a lot. It wasn’t exactly gossiping or backstabbing but more of an analysis and observation. It was an interesting topic to think about.
Overall, I wasn’t very productive school-wise, but it was fulfilling.
I’m preparing myself for all the stress I feel like I’m going to receive in the next three days so having five happy days is an early reward.
I can finally feel the weight of this college program and it’s not a good thing. Animating my stuff may be a little fulfilling, but it’s also stressful, scary, irritating, and difficult.
