I'm SO TIRED!
Aye! I've never been this exhausted in my entire life!
I stayed up till 8am on Tuesday to do an essay about corporate logo change. Wai Kwan was my partner and she was busy sleeping most of the time! Kidding. Heh... she did a lot of the boring stuff I didn't want to do, while I had the easier part =/. Then Wednesday I spent a few hours in McDonald's doing my figure studies, which is accurately drawing a person's face, complete with shading, tones and values. So I had my drink in front of me and was sketching the picture reference, and this little kid comes up to me and speaks some Arabic. At the end I can hear the last 3 words "can draw me?" and I pretty much understood. So since I didn't think he'd be good in English I replied "me no good. me lousy. cannot draw people, okay?" and I pointed at myself and put my thumbs down as sign language. He got it and said thanks while walking off. An hour later, some guy apporached me and said "Hey, you draw well." And I said thanks. Then he said "can you draw me?" HAHA! I was seriously stunned! Twice in a row! I seriously don't draw well, and I was surprised that the public of all people would notice my drawing. Brightened up my mood considerably.
Spoiled the next day though. Jackee was pissed that a number of us didn't do our portaits as well as she wanted. Oh well. Wai Kwan, Ruz and Kok Kin and I went to search for some materials needed for our assignment. Later on, after we left, I had a good cellgroup meeting followed by a celebration of Jessica's birthday. And when James drove me back, we had a great chat about a lot of relevant stuff. Thanks!
Anyhoo, today was hell, hell, hell. I haven't slept well for the entire week, and it showed. Today in Lily's class she gave poor marks for nearly everyone's work, because we didn't do what she wanted. Geez. We had received a feedback and survey form the previous day, and for Lily, 99% of the class gave her poor remarks for almost every single thing. Just don't let her teach us next year. Heck, she's not even "teaching".
Had a meal at KFC with my group plus Miki and Elaine before rushing to the library to do our movie review. Later on in history, we were divided into different groups. History combines 3 classes, so there's like 90 or so people in the class. Then we needed to appoint a group leader. So since I was the first one to talk to my group and ask everyone to introduce themselves, they made me the group leader. WHAT! Then after that all the group leaders needed to go up to the front and out of the 10 group leaders, one would be the General-Secretary, one would be Vice President, and another President. 5 or 6 of the group leaders are from my class! The others are from the other classes. Then after that Stephen (lecturer) asked the class to vote for the leaders to fill the positions. Ashley had 20 or so votes to be the secretary while I only had like 4 votes? I didn't mind. Stephen mentioned these people would need to work harder and work with the morning batch. Since I expected the class to vote me for the secretary position, I thought I'd be safe with Ashley taking the position, but no~~~ they voted for me as vice president! What the heck? Why me? So much duties! I got class monitor job, I'm the group leader of my group, and now I'm the vice president of the history class. I needa do all the monitor duties, which give me headaches, then as the group leader, I need to arrange the meetings, deadlines and overall stuff. Add to the fact I gotta work with a few strangers from the morning batch, and that I need to figure out with the remaining 5 council members how to arrange the exhibition for our pieces after 2 weeks. Add that to the fact I have to do a prototype pop up mechanism card on Monday, a presentation and essay on Tuesday, a 50% completed Adobe Illustrator artwork by Wednesday, 3 quality figures (took me 6 hours for one) on Thursday, and a wonderland painting that features the Petronas Twin Towers on Friday. We also gotta do 50% of our history assignments by then. I can only imagine what work we'll get on Saturday in 8 hours time -.-.
*Sigh* do you see the hell I go through? I enjoy the work, but the time schedule is insane, and everyday I need to pass up something new the next day. Today's my only break, and I need it. Sunday is also the prelims for Emerge basketball, so I can't rest then. I haven't even practiced since I moved here. Arhhhh!
The One Academy = TOA = Thousands of assignments -.-.
