Last Round of Presentations & Projects @ Friday, October 31, 2014
Monday 13th October
Last week of school.
A classic though one I have yet to hear live.
Last picture isn't mine.
I hate pigs so that didn't go so well with a movie about a pig on screen. But it ended with Space Odyssey, and Blue Danube. Remind me again why I can't hire them for our wedding? That last piece is perfect for dancing to - ballroom. :P This event was promoting the four 'Cult Classics' series - which we have tickets to (I won them).
After the preview we went for a walk and Adrian convinced me to try something new. A souvlaki/kebab place I recall jas recommending. It was bland and quantity over quality and I didn't like it. Options are limited late at night in the city. This may be a great example of why jas doesn't recommend things, fear of not having good results.
Today we made it just in time for class, even though I missed the bus we caught the tram instead and caught up with mr events, and discussions on the fear of missing out on events. I may have invaded on his lunch break there...
The first of three last projects was handed in. Double space kills trees! The second I missed half the presentation - not because I wasn't there but because I was too slow and the slides were ahead of me. We met presentation partner a grand total of two times - when we received the project and when delivering it.
Snacking my way through life we made an attempt for healthy choices in terms of a mini carton of milk (juice box sized) and custard (which I love with fruit salad or fruit jelly/o). Unfortunately we purchase - but not consumed - m&ms as I forgot we already had a pack or two, and grain waves which I love.
One last presentation tomorrow, and I can't say I learnt much or achieved my goals or increase my creativity and explored the unfamiliar. I'd love to have do something like this.
Today we were on time to class! And the presentation went well, Miss Photo liked the mango section which is good. I kinda like the patterns more, my favourite is the kiwi/strawberry.
Some (ok all but one IMO) of the other presentations were amazing... there was a guy who did grey pictures taken in the area, but it was so much deeper than that. A girl took pictures of zoomed in faces - it was stunning... the emotions, details and all.
Things I suppose I'm afraid of trying. I tried once long ago with Austin, the result was a picture that looks like it was taken at a nightclub - a classy one. But the overhead lighting wasn't great. I do find people a bit scary.
Another girl did some product shots, in particular empty perfume bottles on a background she painted and sprinkled glitter on. I love glitter... but glitter is the herpes of craft supplies, and I don't like it in the lens.
Other than the pictures I found the fact that she used them all, the perfumes, amazing, for I have never finished a bottle. She has a different one for each occasion, so that would be a great memory link, also each bottle was a gift. That is also amazing, because I'm crazy picky and have to select my own.
Cannoli on the way to the station! In celebration of wk12, even though we have no idea what to do after honours and then masters. That and we haven't applied for honours yet...
We're taking a day and a half off from work to chill, between finishing projects and starting exam prep. So to chill we walked up a lane made of cobblestones, which was difficult... I love modern paved roads! It was worth it though, as we scored x2 tickets to a concert next year.
The city is full of Jehovah's Witnesses this weekend, as a result of the international convention, which unfortunately I couldn't be a part of due to Armageddon which I prefer. :P But then the other event is huge... They walk around with name tags like Mormons but aren't here to recruit. I asked, and the girls said it was so they could identify each other (as there's 1000s of them) in the same way when cosplayers meet they pretty much immediately connect, it's pretty cool.
Back to the city for a very late lunch and part of dinner. I love sushi!
Found a beautiful green sequin dress. To buy or not to buy?
Thursdays are for openings, launches and preview nights. Lily went to the NGV opening night while I went shopping instead. There was cupcakes. :) Though it was summer in there! I like it warm, not hot.
Hence we had green tea soft serves from Rice Workshop. :)
We spent this weekend at Armageddon. This was my favourite cosplay!
Many Elsa's were seen but no Anna's. I didn't cosplay, as I was working there.
