‘intense’ would be such an understatement.

i practically learned more things in the past week than my whole life combined.
it was insane.
totally insane.

projects, worries, woes, disappointments, betrayals,
life didn't go according to plan alright.

i'm still so delirious that it's over.
now we have (well, i do) a two week holiday.. sort of.
next week there's this big big big design conference thingy that everyone seems to be attending, so there would be no class at uni, sorta.
then the next week we've easter break.. which i will spend working my ass off trying to learn italian.

not going to french class today - it seems like i have lost my motivation..? don't really get it either.
i think i'm just extremely tired with everything from the last week. it is a HUGE relief that it's over.

good thing the bestie came the day after i submitted the big project, too.
now i can totally spoil ourselves and cook and go shop like a maniac and go eat chocs like there's no tomorrow.

off to go back to sleep.. i'm soooooooo tired.

You Are 15% Left Brained, 85% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

ooh. that explains..

above all else, he's making my heart smile -

isn't it funny how someone can turn you head over heels over him, without even knowing it?
how it feels so good when there's just the two of you,
talking about random things,
glancing secretly into each other's eyes?
how you can feel yourself falling, hard and fast, for a familiar stranger?

how, at that one single moment, you feel so unbelievably complete?

there's no other word to describe the present that we have.
there's no other word to describe him.

it's perfect.
he's perfect.

in this nothingness, we have everything.

love/ hate/ life

studying design is not good for your mental health, and your physical one for that matter.

you get stressed out,
you spend a lot of money trying to get everything to be perfect
(even if everyone else says that it already is, just because being perfectionist roams in your veins),
you skip meals,
you are socially deprived,
you barely have spare time,
you don't live normally,
you get productive during crazy hours and that normally is when everybody else is sleeping,
you are anxious most of or all the time,
you crave from validation from others
(either regarding your idea, your work, yourself),
you work your ass off creating awesome work but jobs don't come your way,
you are barely appreciated,
you are expected to be a master in drawing even though in reality most designers can't draw,
your artwork would almost certainly get screwed up by the marketing team,
you get very low points if you're applying for permanent residency in australia,
you don't get a lot of money
(contrary of popular belief),
you strive to be different but alas everybody is.

but you stay in the industry, because despite the long list of the bads, you love doing what you do.

talk about being doomed.

in my case?

1 A-Z, 0-9 typeface design
1 DVD packaging mock up
ideas for poster
an entry for a design competition

i've got 8 hours to complete them.
the worse bit, is that i hurt my back this afternoon.
SO PAINFUL it made me cry.
(in private, of course. it is still painful, but i'm okay as long as no one touches it.)

am i gonna sleep?
of course i'm not.

design is not all gold and glitters.
being a designer is not an easy job.
so don't judge us.

don't think it's easy being us.

I've got an offer from uni to go there for a month.


hell yeah i'm going.
this is ITALY we're talking about.

so i guess i should stop learning french for a while and start learning italian, no?

please let me be good enough-

i've always wanted to have an internship, and out of nowhere the opportunity comes up.
in one of my favourite studios, no less.

i really want this. this might be la chance de ma vie. this might open a bigger window.
this might help me shape a better future.

please let me be good enough.

a new one-

so here we are, in my new blog! yay!

this is supposed to be temporary, though. (temporary being the operative word..)
i'm in the process of creating a website for my portfolio, so until that one's up and ready, i'll use this for basically everything.
ummm. and about LJ – well, the really really old one was kind of abandoned anyway since it had gotten too.. public. then i created another one but it became sort of too private. don't want to create a friendster blog, so voilĂ , a blogger account.

i realized that this will be very public, maybe even more than my old LJ,but... i'll give this a chance.

welcome! :D
