I haven't really been updating about school on here (well, actually that's kind of a lie, I've been updating my tumblr with some stuff), but for the most part I am enjoying it. The work has been intense and it's only going to get more so, but I'm having fun. Today I stayed in class until 7:30 so I could finish off two projects that are due on Monday. I'm happy I did it because now I can relax a bit this weekend and just start planning and sketching for the billion other projects I have due in the next few weeks.

The people I'm in class with are really nice and we're all getting along really well. The past two Thursday's have been class 'movie night'. We have a huge screen and digital projector at the front of our classroom, so we can just hook up our laptops to it and play movies. Last week we watched X-Men: First Class. Yeah, I was a giddy mess throughout the whole thing, but luckily I'm in a room full of art students and I'm not the only nerd there. \o/ Last night we decided on a Miyazaki night and watched Princess Mononoke and Kiki's Delivery Service. I had never seen PM and I have to say I was really disturbed watching it. I don't get disturbed or scared watching movies very much and I gotta say I was super surprised as to how I reacted to it. It was a beautiful, intense, weird, and amazing film that left me weirded out. But then Kiki made up for it because IT WILL FOREVER BE MY FAVOURITE MIYAZAKI FILM! ♥

Today in life drawing class two of the girls were kidding around with the British guy (I think I mentioned him before) and one stole his hat/beanie and he was sitting there with his lovely brown curls around his face. Then one girl said 'Fuck. You look so much like Orlando Bloom.' and it I almost fell over flat on my back because he really, really does and I cannot believe what an utter git I've been for not noticing it before. And of course he's got this lovely accent, lovely sense of humour, is crazy talented, and I'll be with him in school for three years. I can't. The universe is testing me, I'm sure.

I got 95% on my latest photography project. The assignment was just a study of the different focal lengths and depths of field. I honestly wasn't expecting such a high mark since I kind of half assed it, but one of the pics I took I really do love:

Now I'm off to bed since sleep seems to become a rare thing for me these days.

I love these posters, but damn, someone take photoshop away from whoever did these.

Part of the reason I love my older men is the little crinkles and laugh lines. THEY'RE NOT PORCELAIN DOLLS, PEOPLE!

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] oohasparklie...

I can't handle you right now, Fassy, you're too fucking gorgeous here. *gross sobbing*

God, I think I have to go throw myself off a bridge or something. Or punch him in the face. *huffs*

Last night mum and I watched that new show Terra Nova that we recorded. I thought it was alright, but nothing mind blowing. Anyway, throughout the whole thing I kept saying I wanted a dinosaur and because daughters love to torture their mothers, I kept saying it really loudly. Anyway, this morning mum was still asleep even though her alarm was going off and I had to wake her, so I just walked in her room, turned on the lights and screamed 'I WANT A DINOSAUR!'. That got her up.

I am 5 years old, not 27. :P

I got myself a brand new phone today! I haven't had a cell phone for almost 2 years and I really found I need one for school. At work I could just use the work phone, but at school there isn't one anywhere nearby. It's an LG Optimus 2x and I'm just trying to get a feel for the touch screen. Anyone recommend any Andriod based apps (that are free) that are any fun/good?
bunnylove: (Fassy → That damn mouth)
It has officially been one week at school and I've had every class except for one (life drawing). So far so good... only thing is that I have about 10 assignments due or to be worked on. A lot of them are spread out, so at least I have time and the mental capacity to do them all, if they were all due within the next week or two I think I'd cry. I had my first photography class yesterday and I loved it. I've always loved photography and now to be able to get into the nitty gritty of it and learn about all the technical stuff is awesome. I can already tell that this will be one of my favourite classes.

One of my least favourite classes is my communications class. It's a requirement so I can't pass the course without it. Writing is a huge component to a design/illustration career, so I am happy to be learning the skills, but some of the stuff is annoying. Ah well, you always have to take the good with the bad, yes?

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] oohasparklie, I also found out today that we're probably taking a class trip to Portland at the end of February. We'll only be there two days, but I was thinking that maybe.... ;) Also in 3rd year we get to go to New York for a week. I'm super stoked for this because that means that I could see Daisy again. <333

Has anyone read the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger? I'm in the middle of the newest one and I just found something out about one of my favourite characters and I feel the need to fangirl with someone.

I also feel the need to post this pic of Michael Fassbender from the TIFF press conference for Shame, because this is now one of my faves ever:

The first few days of uni have been good! The first day was pretty much orientation for both the university in general and then the program I'm in. Oh and I also got about $3,000 worth of art supplies and a brand spanking new Nikon D3000 SLR camera, with two lenses. It was like freaking Christmas! The paints, pens, papers we got were so awesome. I know that this is all paid for by my tuition, but still it's fun to get stuff. I also got a good desk. We all had to draw out of a hat for assigned seating and the desk I initial got was crap (right in the middle of the room). I overheard one of the guys say how he didn't like his since it was in the back corner so I asked if he wanted to switch and he did! I'm so happy because I'm right beside a window I can open/close whenever I want. That was the biggest thing I was worried about when I thought about it. Kinda silly I know, but still I want to be comfortable. I am in the back corner near the sink, but still surrounded by people. The guy who faces in front of me (two desks face each other) is the clone of Andy (Gabriel Tigerman) from Supernatural. I shit you not, I had to do a double take when I first saw him, it was so freaky. There's also a guy from just north of London in my class and fuck I am in trouble. Any accent from the UK does me in no matter what. What's worse is that he has long dark curly hair and wears jeans and flip flops. KILL ME NOW.

Part of the course requirement is a communications course, so we had that yesterday morning. We went over the syllabus for the year and looking at it as a whole it made me freak out a bit, but luckily the longest paper I have to write will only be 750 words. Then I had illustration and then today was art history which I enjoyed a lot more than I thought. The teacher I have is awesome and a really nice guy. It's a very condensed art history so we've just skipped everything until the Renaissance. We have to replicate a Renaissance painting, which I started today. We don't have to do the whole thing, just need to do a small section of it and then use the techniques that the painters back then used. I picked 'Spring' by Botticelli (if anyone knows that painting you know how detailed it is).

So far I've met all but 2 of my teachers. Everyone seems really nice and I actually had one last summer so I already know him well and know what he's like, so it's kind of a relief. There's also 4 others in my class from the class I took last summer, so I at least knew some people going in. It's kind of a relief that I wasn't going in blind. There's 30 of us in total and I've already gotten to know some of the others a bit. There's a couple of girls who are totally into X-Men, Marvel in general, Doctor Who, Iron Man, Walking Dead and more, so I am with my people. XD

I started decorating my desk area today since I’ll be sitting in the same spot until May. I think fate put me there for the sole reason to have an awesome excuse to put up Fassbender!Magneto (I would have done it anyway, ngl). The words ‘sweet metal’ were already written on the pillar there by a previous student, so I thought I’d make the best of it. I also had to put some inspirational ‘quotes’ up as well. AND OF COURSE I TOOK PICTURES BECAUSE I AM CRAZY AWESOME.

Next to be put up: Iron Man (RDJ like a boss), Sherlock Holmes (again RDJ like a boss), Doctor Who and maybe some Sailor Moon.

I think I'll be okay, although I am feeling that things will get more intense. Already I have three projects assigned (but thankfully they're not due for weeks, so I have time) and one illustration assignment due next week.

Tomorrow I have to go and buy a bunch of stuff including a new cell phone. I haven't had a cell phone in almost 2 years and haven't had too many occasions where I would really benefit from one, but these past few days I've been wishing I had a phone at least 3-4 times a day. I'm just going with a pay as you go plan since I can't afford contract/expensive plans. I'm also buying a net book because it will save me a shit load of time and be so helpful. There's 30 of us and only 7 computers in the classroom, so we're all fighting over one or another and pressed for time. Some have been bringing their laptops in, but the one I have is over 18 inches wide and just so heavy and takes up space. A net book would work wonderfully on my desk and I can do all my research from there and just type up all my communication assignments right in class rather than writing them out by and and then typing them up to submit to the teacher online.

Today I finally saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 2. It was incredible and I felt like my heart was in my throat the entire time. I had a couple of issues with it, but overall it was beautiful. I went in expecting to feel emotional, but when Harry went into the forest to face Voldemort and everyone appeared, well, I just broke down. That part of the books always gets me as well, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. Also, Neville and McGonagal were BAMFs x a billion. Seriously.

Tomorrow is my first day of university. For those of you who may not know I am taking a three year course in graphic design and illustration. I've been having anxiety attacks all week about it, so things have been a bit emotional. It's not so much that tomorrow I start school, tomorrow I start my life. Like, my life. Those of you who've known me all these years know that it's been a struggle for me for many different reasons. It's more of moving forward for me and just me. These are things that should have happened shortly after high school, but they didn't. It's taken me 10 years to get here and of course I'm going to be a bit nervous. I'm also super excited. After orientation tomorrow morning I have my first class: photography for designers I. I also get a brand new Nikon camera, so the added bonus of a new toy is exciting.

So yes, tomorrow is nerve wracking for me for several reasons, but I think I'm ready.

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] oohasparklie, I totally thought of you when I saw this pic:

(click for bigger Fassbender and Dale)

So with all the reviews of Shame coming out of the Venice Film Festival I don't think I've been this excited for a movie in a really long time (except Avengers, SH2 and The Hobbit). All the reviews are saying how fantastic Michael Fassbender is and Carey Mulligan and I couldn't be more happy. At first it was excitement to see Fassy 100% naked (apparently he walks around completely naked for the first 10 minutes of the film) and just a new film of his, but as of right now I don't care. Well, I do care, but that's not really what I mean. I've read the Shame script that leaked and I just cannot wait to see Fassy and Carey's performances in the flesh. Just seeing him in Hunger punched a hole right through my chest from his acting and subject matter, and that doesn't happen very often. McQueen and Fassy will leave me a sobbing, raw mess, I am sure. Yes I may be over the edge of insanity in regards to this man right now, but when I first took notice of him when [livejournal.com profile] oohasparklie did all her awesome posts of him and started to slowly watch his work, I knew he has something that not many actors have. I'm so excited; for the movie, for his performance, and just for him.

Honestly I haven't been hit this hard with obsession over an actor since Orlando, I believe.

And now I sound like some psycho stalker so I'll shut up now.

Tomorrow is my last day at Starbucks:

Seriously I am so happy to be leaving. The politics and management at my store have just been a nightmare for the past couple of months and I'm glad to see it all gone. There's about 4 people I will really miss working with, we had some good laughs, but other than that, nothing, nada, zip, zero. The first time I quit Starbucks I told myself I'd never go back (the job itself isn't that bad, but it's retail and you don't make any money) and I did, but this time I believe I won't have to. Tuesday I start university and for the next three years I'll be dealing with that and lack of sleep. Once I'm done I'm going to have much better prospects and possible a job.

I almost feel like things are really getting started for me. This should have happened years ago, but it is now and I'm both super excited and so nervous I feel as if I could puke. Today I got an email from one of my teachers telling the class which textbook we needed to buy for next week and it really hit me that it's almost here. Also the textbook (okay, more like a notebook) is only $11, so I don't have to spend a bundle on it. That I have to do on art supplies.

And speaking of art supplies I saw this last night and it is literally like a dream come true:


It would be super awesome if we could use this in second year, because that's when we do all our digital work. I'll get a brand spanking new Mac and tablet out of it and this would just be the icing on the cake. :D

I haven't been that well since about Friday night (in the past 32 hours I've consumed 8 digestive biscuits, 2 pieces of toast and some apple sauce). Mum's been sick most of the week with something and I guess I got it or I ate the same thing she did. I called in sick to work yesterday (OMG I ONLY HAVE 3 MORE SHIFTS AND THEN I'M FINISHED!!!! MUAHAHAHA!) and today I thought I'd suck it up and go in. Instead of taking my usual bus home dad came to pick me up since I bribed him with a cookie (seriously, I had to buy him a cookie) and he knew I wasn't feeling well. On our way home we went through an intersection and there was this crow just smack dab in the middle of it. It wasn't flying away or hopping around, it was just standing there looking terrified as cars passed it by. I made dad pull over because it was obvious that something was wrong with it. Before I could get back to the intersection though some guy pulled up to it and honked at it and it flew about 20 feet and then just crashed down back on the road. The poor things wing looked kind of mangled. Since this was the opposite side of the street I made dad turn around and take me back. When we got back there there were two people out near it trying to catch it with a towel, but being a bird and not understanding that we wanted to help it just kept flapping and hopping away. I tried to catch it with a cloth grocery bag, but then it fluttered under a parked truck.

In the end we couldn't catch it and while I wish I could have helped more I am glad that we were able to get it out of the intersection so it couldn't get squished by a car.

Honestly this man is trying to kill me. I can't function any more.

The Japanese trailer for the XM:FC DVD has been released and now we finally see Fassy in drag...

I don't know if I should laugh my ass off, be turned on or run away screaming. And OMG James' face near the end... It's just too much.

Once again my brain loves me; I had another kick ass Avenger dream last night. This time I was Rogue from X-Men and had to help them find Loki. Wolverine was there as well and at one point he was talking to me about Gambit and if I had forgiven him (for what I have no idea). The next few details are fuzzy, but I end up finding Loki (in my dream he was Hiddleston) somewhere in the desert where he seems to be confused and doesn't really know who he is. I try to help him out, but it turns out it was a trap. Something else happens and I try to get away but I can't and then all of a sudden he's kissing me. Now being Rogue of course this is a bad idea, but that was his plan all along. Again I am fuzzy on the details about what happens next, but what I do remember next is that I'm in a showdown with Iron Man, Captain America, and Wolverine. A big battle ensues and I guess I am good again or something because the next thing I remember is that I'm at SHIELD HQ. Then I wake up. >.<

Seriously, why hasn't anyone made anything to DVR our dreams? LOL Where's Christopher Nolan when you need him?
