Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Aye, the last few weeks have been a pleasure with friends, but a pain with school.
Last semester, Ruzanna's friend Olivia, needed the most badass-looking person she knew. Unsurprisingly or not, Ruzanna picked me -.-. Lmao. So I ended up helping with Olivia's photoshoot for her assignment. Guess what I was? I was a human trafficker! LOL. I needed to reprise my role again since she was continuing the same thing this semester, so I ended up being the drug trafficker again. Although it was just a photoshoot last semester, this time round it was a video shoot instead. I needed to show regret, but with a certain sort of aloofness that I'm doing what I'm doing.
Samantha Teoh joined us later, plus one of their classmates, to help do the voice recording. It was bloody funny, and the mistakes and all just added to it. Samantha doesn't specialize in Mandarin, so yeah, it was ironic. I spoke too fast on some occasions, but at least mine was in English. That other friend also helped to the Mandarin voices for another character. They were my victims!
Also on recording, our band just recorded our first music video! Last weekend, Astro Talentquest had a winner or contestant that needed to do a music video for one of his songs, and they needed back up musicians to fill in for the background. Our band was chosen, and in return for the favour, they'd do a music video for us. I had class on Saturday, which spoiled my mood due to Leon's critiques, and See Jek's arrogance in proclaiming her group was supposed to go first before mine. Regardless, I rushed over with Ryan to a place near Jalan Alor and we filmed ourselves on the rooftop of a slightly run down apartment. Music videos are done by just pretending you're doing what is on the music track, and there's no actual sound. We headbanged, played our instruments, had close ups done and some other random stuff for the video. There was one scene where we needed to stand behind this emo looking girl, and according to all of them, I looked the most fierce. Haha! Woots!
Anyway, I'm on a one week holiday now. Exploration week isn't a proper holiday but hell, to me it is. I had lunch with Miki yesterday, to catch up on our lives and just hang out, so she took me out to this ban mee place. Pretty good!
Class this semester is quite tiring. Leon's class of corporate identity 2 is probably the worst, but everything else is still alright. Friends-wise, I haven't been hanging out with the usual Essenism group as a whole due to a lack of timetable clashes. The days I have school are the days they don't, and vice versa. However, I've still been hanging out regularly with Miki, Justin and all, so thats good. For my class, I've been hanging out with a different group too, since Neal and Ash aren't classmates anymore. Been hanging out regularly with Zi Yuan, Julina and I guess you could say an added addition of Angela. Her close friends in class have all quit or failed, so same situation as me. Lol. My latest group for an assignment is made up of Ivan, Hui Han, Wai Wai and Tommy. Except for Tommy, I've never got to talk to the others regularly. So I guess its something new. Let's see how it goes.
Oh, I saw an interesting article today. It's about how love can make you more creative, while lust makes you more analytical. Click here to take a look.
