That Week Of Wreck Pt. 1

Last week has been the most torturous week of the year (so far) since, err since the last week before SPM. And after so long not handling any form of stress (other than stresses of thinking where to go, should I or should I not cut my hair, etc), you'll realize it'll just come and bash your nose twice as hard. Like getting a splash of icy cold water on a cold morning. And the absence of little things you have when you're young, like you tend to have those tiny hopes of a miracle to happen at the last minute, like, when you wake up the next morning, or the next time you go to class, you're gonna get smarter all of a sudden, or you can cram everything inside on the next lesson/review. No, matured conscience, that's not gonna happen, never did, never will.

Imagine this, , 3 incomplete assignments, 2 deadlines, and one processed workbook (or merely a sketchbook, if simplified) all need to be satisfied during that one last week before the semester ends. Woohooie, typing and recalling them back all instantly brought back familiar tiredness.

Procrastination is the one to blame and be thrown spiky rocks at. Yes I've been told days (rounds up to roughly a week), and yet this happened. Lesson learned loadsa times, but I guess old habits die hard. Or maybe it did die for the first few weeks of college where I did pass up assignments on time, so I guess habits are zombies which will die and rise from the dead and repeat the cycle from time to time.

The three assignments are :

Photography Assignment 4

Photography Assignment 5

Colour and Form Assignment 3

(And one processed workbook)

Let me integrate through one and each of em :

Photography Assigment 4

I came to class on Thursday only to find out that ALL of the assignments that hasn't been passed up yet, to be passed up on the day ITSELF. And assignment 4 ain't no easy task, you have to have 10 series of photos, that tells a story in a way. Yes I already have the idea in my head on what to do, but to go back, to do the thing, and come back to pass it up, all within that limited amount of hours (lecturer's going back at 4) is, is unheard of. Restlessness wriggled through the guts like ants on a rainy day. OMG, whaaat, am, I gonna dooo. Oh yeah, and assignment 5 isn't stressed on much here, because you only have to frame up your favourite photos, out of all the photos you've taken for the previous assignments. What's hard about it is the mounting which I'm gonna talk about later.

So, to not kill anymore precious time, me and Faye dashed to Summit next door to print up the pictures, and good jolly ! , it's still closed. Darnnn-nnit. So Faye decided to do his assignment 4 first, with me as his subject. The story, summarized, was about me deciding not to fast on one fine day, and in return, I got ran over by a truck. Nice. For a little preview of the story, you can check out Faye's flickr at :


And for the rest of the assignments, I'm going to put it all in different posts. Cause you know, writing it all in one shot will make it exhaustively long, and it'll put weights round your eyelids faster than you can say "weights round my eyelids"

So yeah :)
