One! 1! ONE!
Never have I been so obnoxious in a blog post title, but I felt the need to this time. Normally I try to avoid using exclamation points unless absolutely necessary, because they are a tad pathetic. If you want to be a good writer, don’t use exclamation points. If you write well, you won’t need to use one. ;)
Either way, I have one day left of university.1 It’s not even a proper day, but I have a presentation on that day. Because I’m such a beast… no, you’ll be surprised, I actually prepared for it this time, and not 15 minutes before the assessment like I usually do. On Monday I decided to use some of my time in the photo lab to write up a little bit of what I’ll be saying tomorrow. I’m pretty happy with how far I’ve come with my assignment, and my other assignments too.
I have received comments from people who want to see all my photographs or even the one that Fern gave me the other day. I will definitely show them; I already showed a few in my latest YouTube video but I’ll probably scan them in and/or record a video showing you all the photos so you can see them “in the flesh”. I should be picking up my photos next week after they’re assessed and marked. I also plan to print some more because Fern and Johnny want to use up all their photo paper. I don’t know why they bought so much, even an “emergency pack”, because I only like to buy extra photo paper when I run out.
Since tomorrow is my last day, James and I will be going to the massage chairs at the shopping mall. We tried them last semester, since we’d never used one before, and they were actually really quite relaxing. Just what we need after, now, a whole years’ worth of work. We usually deem those chairs inconvenient, because we never seemed to like them. I suppose our curiosity got the better of us that day. :P I’m definitely looking forward to it, even just a four-minute massage can do wonders, trust me. We’re also going to the grocery store so I can buy ingredients to make fridgecake.
I haven’t been feeling well lately, emotionally. I have been feeling rather empty and have often cried for no reason at all, and sometimes just felt very upset. A lot of my hobbies, like watching shows, making icons, designing and reading blogs, have become very dull to me now. I also feel like I look forward to every day ending. I hope my depression isn’t spooling back and creeping up on me again. I thought it would be nice to do something different for a change, after I spotted this fridgecake recipe James gave me a while back. We don’t have an oven at home; it’s been broken for ages so I have never been able to bake cakes. A fridgecake seems perfect for my situation. :)
Yesterday I celebrated the end of semester with Johnny and Fern at the sushi train place we went to a few times. It was a good way to end it, I guess. :D Our photo class wanted to celebrate since our teacher is the best we’ve had. Someone decided to go to the bar.
So not my scene. I was sitting there really awkwardly, begging with my eyes to Fernando that I wanted to leave. Eventually we did, but not before I was sitting there for 20 minutes feeling very out of place. Bars and pubs are really not my thing, and I don’t drink. I have been to a bar, but that was at a show/gig, so I was sort of prepared for that environment.
Fern kept amusing me by pointing out this guy by the counter who was draping his arms over a bunch of people. He was probably drunk. Fern said, “that guy in the basketball singlet is a tool”.
I love when people can make me laugh. :)
- That is, one day left for my Bachelor’s degree, wahoo. I’m still doing a Graduate Diploma in 2012 though. ↩
