current mood: bummer
current song: mother mother

ask me if I'm happy one more time,
i'll give you a reply, if you give me your eye
i'll leave you with an itty bitty hole,
well it's nothing like the one inside my soul.
it's nothing like the canyon of my heart,
well at least I've got some room to fall apart.

toilet please meet my phone

February 16th, 2011 (10:57 pm)

current mood: cheerful

So it's break during class and I decide I should probs pee then rather then getting back and realizing I can't leave the class due to the model. So I walk to the fifth floor and find the washroom, sitting there doing my pee thing, stand up...CLATTER CLANK! I wondered who had dropped something in the bathroom...then that sinking feeling set in and before I looked..I just knew. ; - ; x a million. I whipped around and looked on the floor first praying it was on the floor, but no, there is my moderately new phone sitting in the bottom of the toilet in my pee. Naturally I started to laugh, good god these kinds of things happen to me every week! So I rolled up my sleeve knowing what had to be done, of course I started thinking this would have been a great time in my life to have not chewed the shit out of my fingers until they bled this morning, great open wounds in a public toilet. I cringed and plunged my hand into the toilet grabbing my phone. I stood there in the stall helplessly for a couple of seconds until I hear the girl who had also been in the bathroom leave then I scurried to the sink grabbed tons of paper towels and got them wet and started wiping my phone down feverishly.

Once it was relatively dry, I washed my hands harder than I have in ages. Miracously my phone was still alive, I laughed triumphantly and ran back upstairs. I started texting people (i'm so gross I know) about how my phone is a miracle phone, but that's when it started happening. Every T turned into a #, somehow the letter c was added inbetween everything backspace turned into a P and oddly at the end of every text the number 3 appeared. Then it just stopped working. So now it's resting in a huge bowl of rice, I have faith in the little guy, HE CAN DO IT, HE WILL SURVIVE!

Other than that, Mary and Derek came over inbetween class and we all hung out in my room Mary drew and Derek and I battled eachother in pokemon stadium I won 6 out of the 7 games, FUCK YEAH. Then I went to an extra life drawing class it was great, I sat beside the kindest old man. He was an art teacher before and his stuff blew my mind. He gave me so many awesome pointers and told me what my strengths were and how to add onto them as well to make it work even better! He was just so great. I am falling in love with life drawing guys, it's so fun ..before your back aches from leaning over so much. Haha, but my day has been pretty exciting to say the least.

aaaaaaand my break starts tomorrow after my painting class! I feel so joyous!

schedule for the weekend

February 12th, 2011 (07:23 am)

current mood: awake
current song: cbc radio 1

I set my alarm for 8:15 ...so why am I awake at 7:15. I is confuse. :(

I think I may have accidently let go of the alarm button and hit the clock button while trying to pick an hour to wake up last night in the dark. Ah well, this gives me more time to get inspired to LIFE DRAW AT 10! I tried to go to the open class on wednesday and appeared 15 minutes early but the room was so full that there was no space for me. I have no idea why they hold it in room 615 it's so small the rooms in the art department are MUCH larger than the design rooms, what are they thinking?

Other than that I'm trying to schedule my time for the next couple of days.


life drawing from 10-1
draw second self portrait
start painting grey scales for portraits
start and hopefully finish first portrait painting


possibly finish the first portrait
start and try to finish second portrait

finish second portrait painting
portfolioVALENTINES DAY WITH CHRIS AND MARY, we're all going to drink, eat lots of pizza and watch TLC together and just be a bunch of sad single fatties ahahaha. Just kidding we're going to relish the fact that we're single. Okay, I will, but maybe they won't ahaha. It will be fun. I'm excited.

That's my weekend losers. Let's get this day started!! ...at 7:30.

life and cheesecake

February 8th, 2011 (05:44 pm)

On a more positive note, my favourite part of yesterday was when Andrea and I were sitting in the grange and drawing. I looked over to Est West (this food place beside us) and noticed they had strawberry cheesecake, I am a FIEND for cheesecake but I also made a vow I wouldn't eat from there because they were stealing business from Karine's! I told Andrea this and then we continued to draw. As I was drawing I started to think about just how complex the entire world is and life and just the self and everything, it all hit me at once and I couldn't put it into words so out loud I said "UGH, whyyy whyyyy is life so complicated and vast, there are layers behind everything ...justtt LIFE!" Andrea looked up at me bewildered and said, "is this still about the cheesecake...or perhaps something more?" I honestly killed myself laughing, and I still do everytime I think about her face and the tone of voice she used when asking me so innocently yet with a hint of concern incase I needed to talk to her about my cheesecake woes.

That is all. As class draws nearer and nearer...I have made the decision TO NOT GO! Hahahah time to get my art on. Oh and I ended up buying the cheesecake, it was....delicious. :')

worst class ever?

January 13th, 2011 (01:48 pm)

I got my angst sorted out. I have until March 3rd to complete and hand in my animation portfolio, I know I can do it! I know I can do well! I really want this.

In other news, I'm taking a class I totally despise but I'm only staying in it because Kate is also in that class. It's a liberal studies class, I LOVE those classes because all I have to do is sit at the back of the room and draw feverishly while listening to a lecture, it's easy sailing and I love how low key it is. Now that I've set that up, this liberal studies class...is THE WORST! We have some like new age bullshitty teacher who wants to make learning the most fun it can be, so he's saying our class room is going to become a community. First thing we had to do in class "make eye contact with someone you don't know" oh god oh god it's like every introvert with social anxiety's worst nightmare. I legit. could not do it, I made an attempt but I have a huge problem with making eye contact with strangers. Then we had to go around the class introducing ourself to everyone and shake their hands (ugh), then we had to find a stranger and tell them a story. MORE UGH. Can I repeat how much I hate this kind of stuff? I stuck to Kate like glue and pretended I didn't know her and then told her story.

Then he split us off into four groups, I was not in Kate's group. We all had to share with our group what we expect from the class and our reasons for taking it and what not. Everyone apparantly has really deep feelings towards aboriginal stories "since I was five I've been fascinated with cultures that are not my own...blahblahbalhbullshit" every one went on all these super intense reasons for taking the course, then it came to me. "Uh, I guess I just like stories? I hope to get a decent grade from the class? (looks up to stares of the group expecting me to say more) I suppose...that's it." "Oh, uhh..ok then, next?". Socializing is just not my strong point, my head kept telling me to ABORT ABORT ABORTTTTTTTT this class, but now that Kate and I are partners for a major project later on, I don't think I should switch.

This class will be a source of great anxiety and dread. So when everyone came back into the room and sat in a circle, I took out my sketchbook and started to draw because that's all I god damn wanteddddd from a liberal studies class, then the teacher was like :D :D :D :D "NO NEED TO TAKE NOTES IN THIS UNCONVENTIONAL CLASS! I once heard that people take notes to forget things!" I was seriously the only person in the class with a sketchbook and pen out, so he was staring at me. I looked around then closed my sketchbook and put my pen on my lap, all the while wishing he would just burst into flames for being soooo obnoxious.

All my friends think I'm crazy for hating this class because it's suppose to be fun and it's pretty simple and straight forward, but even the first class drained me emotionally. He expects us to learn everyone's names and get to know one another and hang out. SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh not my cup of tea. Expect more angsty journals about this class in the future.
