Aye... today I had service!
Yesterday however, my mood wasn't so good. Firstly, I was doing abstract animals and I needed to fuse them, making a monster. However, Lily, the teacher, rejected it and told me to redo it, and half the class needs to redo theirs. What the? Then after that she gave us instructions for another assignment, but nobody understood what she was saying! After her briefing, we asked her questions and she scolded us for not listening and said she wasn't going to explain again since we wouldn't listen anyway. Seriously I was like what the hell?! We WERE listening. She made NO SENSE. Heck! Eventually Wai Yern helped explain to me what she understood, and slowly the class started picking it up. Thanks!
Afterward we had history, and boy it wasn't pleasant. Last week, we studied gothic architecture, and although I was sleeping during the talk about Akkadian art, once he started mentioning gothic architecture and churches, I was immediately awake. Heh! Then he started talking about gothic people, and started describing them, by saying they wear black all the time, have wild and long or spiky hair, they wear metal and chains and have a lot of piercings, and that they believe so and so. The entire class was laughing at me -.-. LOL! I felt like he was using me as a guide for describing goths! So I'm gothic, according to the proper definition. Hmmm. This lesson we had a movie session, about the Byzantine Empire of Constantine. We needed to watch the movie and write a review. That wouldn't be so bad... if I didn't fall asleep for the first half! The second half I was wide awake, but there were certain parts (nearly the whole movie) I couldn't understand because of the noise! Geez! This movie review is 10% of the history lesson marks, quite a bit for just a movie. And almost no one paid attention. I paid attention but couldn't hear most of the stuff, but luckily I had some general knowledge on Byzantium, so I put two-and-two together to piece it. The lecturer was quite pissed at the end though, and so was I, because I couldn't hear most of the time. Zzz. I did catch most of the second movie 'cause I knew half of it beforehand. And the Hagia Sophia is truly, truly beautiful. The story about the seraphim art in there is also really interesting, mainly 'cause seraphim are my favourite angels!
Today we had drawing class, and we needed to shade in geometric shapes. I was impressed by my own drawing, I didn't think it'd turn out so nice. I mean its not much compared to my classmates, but its an achievement for me =D. Anyhoo, half the class, Yen included, watched Kung Fu Panda at Sunway Pyramid afterward. It's a really good movie! I was very surprised at how good it was... I was just expecting something mediocre, but it turned out to be hilarious and entertaining. Recommended for anyone!
We hung out at Carl's Jr. later, looking through Yen's portfolio. I'm super demoralized! The drawings are brilliant and it's really, really good. If you could see it, you probably wouldn't draw again, he's that good! In the ensuing conversation, I also somehow ended up agreeeing to cosplay some character in an anime. I'll give more details on that once I figure out who I'm cosplaying, and from what anime. I just know I'm going to be a butcher/monster. LOL. Took 2 pictures, so here you go?
That's Miki, haha. Cute.
I went off for service after and Mike Connell was preaching! Unfortunately, no special deliverance services today, in fact it was quite a basic sermon, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. However, I did fall asleep twice, which was due to my insane schedule. I have slept poorly this week, and haven't slept more than 3 hours in the last 3 days. *Sigh* school is a torture, but I do enjoy what I'm doing.
Had fellowship after service, and it was really a fun time chatting with everyone. Also, I took a picture of my cluster's logo. DAMN COOL.
