Back to School, Again

August 16, 2012

My messy table right now, I took it right before I started typing.

It's 10.45am now and I'm sipping a cup of milk, blogging! Can't remember when was the last time I blogged in the morning. Yes school has started again, thus I'm trying to get back to the habit of sleeping early and wake up early.

Right before I came back to Singapore on Sunday, I had one of the most painful moments of my life - I opened the car door and saw the seat was flooded by water, together with my laptop bag, of course with my laptop in it. Why was that so painful - because it's a new computer. A MacBook Pro that I had been yearning and longing and craving, I finally bought it, and what happened next? It got flooded. I might need to pay the amount of a new laptop to get it repaired. I couldn't stop blaming myself that day, it's not even the first day of school yet. I'm glad I finally calmed myself and accepted that nothing I could do to rewind the time, I must focus on what I should and could do. I'd hate it if I allowed it to ruin my entire week. I hope I learned the lesson and be a lot more careful to my laptop and phone and camera, wouldn't want anything similar to happen ever again.

So, I had been living without a laptop for a few days. And I survived. It feels good not to stick with the computer all the time. I finally unplugged myself for a few days - though I still have my phone that could go online, I have school during daytime so I don't use it so often too. Now I'm using my sister's laptop, it's a little annoying that she doesn't have Photoshop here, I can't survive without it. For the first time in a very long time, I tried using online photo editor, it's actually not that bad! The photo on top was edited by using it.

So how has school been? Great. We have some really cool lecturers - I've mentioned this on my facebook but I still wanna say it again, my photography lecturer was a celebrity photographer and he shot Elijah Wood, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Snoopdog, etc. Isn't that cool? The Illustrator lecturer is an art director of a company that has done lots of branding & advertising jobs, some works we see in the MRT and billboards here are done by them! Fashion drawing lecturer will probably be one of my favourite lecturers. David Downton is my favourite fashion illustrator and that's the main reason why I started using watercolour last year, coincidentally the lecturer is also his fan and was a watercolour illustrator! I really like that he emphasized that we should all be honest to him, and could ask the simplest questions to him & he promised he would answer and not laugh because he believed in progress. I like them all, can't wait to produce more works that I'd be proud of.

All in all, school has been good. As usual I was a little shy during the first few days with the new classmates but I believe it will get better. The next big thing is to get the momentum back to work on the school works. icandoiticandoiticandoit. I can't bear to see my blog with so little photos, I need to share more exciting photos, I promise I will.

Oh dear I just couldn't have short blog posts, eh?
