Day 768: Versus Coasting
So today was my last real day of school before spring break. Finally decided I’d give in and head home for a bit so I asked Wei-san if I could hitch a ride back with him. He agreed, so I guess I’m going back Friday. Still not sure where I’ll end up though…Kono toki ni, takusan furusato ni tsundeiru tomodachi ga hosii…onna no. Mou. Doko ni neru kanaaaaa…
My burn’s looking better. The toasted skin is peeling off to reveal skin that is less red and more normal coloured, whoo! Aaaaalso I had an allergic reaction to the gauze I used yesterday soooo there’s a rash there now on top of it, as if it wasn’t itchy enough already…
Sculpture today. Had a lot of demos and sensei looked at sketches. He liked one of the ones I liked the least, of course. l’D Then went to lunch with Jisu-san. Aa! Kono aida 「daisuki」 tte…bikkurishita! Mochiron, tomo-suki desu kedooo waaahhh bikkurishitaaaa…!
Then figure. I actually drew something I didn’t hate, uwah yay~ I also got straight As on the skeleton feet *-*! They’re probably the first As I’ve gotten in a drawing class I think. Aaaaand they’re not happening again, haha. I still got Cs on the feet muscles drawings. Also sensei gave us homework over break, ew. Also drawing I sensei came in and watched over us for the last part of class since figure sensei had to catch a plane to go to a funeral u.u
Painting…did nothing. I don’t have a frame to stretch or an idea to discuss even…Went to the lab to try and find something for a bit but to no avail. Went back to class for about half an hour and then everyone headed out so I did, too. Walked over to Yaya’s. We had an NSCS meeting. There was pizza~ And after we went to the grocery store because they were having a deal on kettles aaah~ it was only $7 and it’s waayyyy better than that WalMart one I bought for a similar price. Stainless steel, bigger, and a button to release the spout cover so I don’t burn my hands, uwah~ I feel like a shufu steaking out sales ahaha~ Also bought some microfiber sheets for the bed. Hnnggg they’re so soft and smooth~ Aaaand only $17 what a steal wah~ I love that place they always have such good deals. It’s where I got my rice cooker. And my bathroom scale.
Then~ Went home. Checked dash. Watched the new Kill la Kill…and…now I should order stuff off Amazon but I won’t be here to get it maybe I should wait til I get back…wah. I still have to pack…I should prolly check the weather…
Uwaaahhh I finally made something I don’t haaaate~ #hatching
Day 767: Versus Smoothly
Waah was deathly afreid of the ceramics class this mourning uguu. But sensei just responded to my email saying that accidents happen and he’s sorry I was tasked with the clean up because glaze EVERYWHERE. Wah.
Got cups out of the cone 10 kiln. Every single one fused to the disk D:! Mendokusaaaiiii. As if I didn’t have enough to do already. I didn’t know iron ran so much grah. Spent the rest of class dremmeling off the excesses <.<
Photo…we didn’t have a midterm today. Not complaining. I was bored so I printed my 8 prints I think I’m going to use. I actually got two out of those ~40 I shot yesterday, awww yeh.
Yaya wanted Thai food so that happened. Except this time they were really slow and out of soup so they gave us this salad thing with peanuts on it for godknowwot reason. Didn’t eat it of course. But it’s kai I had Thai tea and green curry and yes good lD
Fabrics class…almost finished sewing, grah. The bobbin ran out of thread three times D:! I’ll prolly work on it tomorrow after classes. Went to jr. ceramics sensei’s gallery talk after that. It was interesting~ Then worked on Baku and stuff for tomorrow. Jr. ceramics sensei came in the metal shop to use the sandblaster (or something) and he commented on how nice Baku looked uwu specifically how clean the surface was comparing it to others’. I’ve been getting quite a few compliments on my clean surfaces on my 3D work this semester. I thought I was a minimalist out of lazyness for a while but maybe I actually just like simple, clean things. That’s prolly why I like making logos, too, ahaha.
Tonikaku. Made a quick stop to the library before heading home because metal sensei wanted us to bring a book tomorrow. Aaaannnnd finished my green tea aisu…and now…bed time.
Also I don’t know if I wrote this but Hana-chan’s parents sent me a care package a few days ago yaaay~ So I can now live off of kit-kats and twizzlers yesssss.
Baku is completed…! \(・∀・)/
Days 763-765: Versus Metal as Fawk
You’ve no idea how long I’ve been waiting to use that title.
I mean, I guess you have but no.
I named 2nd metal sculpture Baku. I dunno why it just seems to fit him.
Soooo as usual I spent the morning sleeping and then trying to drag myself out of bed to be productive. Didn’t work until like I dunno…five I suppose. But then everything was kind of frozen the fawk over. So I went over to Yaya’s and we watched Katanagatari and Atlantis and I finally saw Treasure Planet for the first time whoo! The hype for that movie has been building up for me since I first saw its previews when it first came out…and it was def worth it uguuu. Kinda reminded me of Brave, but with a father(-figure) and son. Uwah. Such greatsies. Also my 8 AM was canceled tomorrow so I stayed over there til like one and then came back and knocked the fawk out.
No ceramics, sadness. So started the day with photo. Got our new project which is…well we all for fortune cookies and we have to make a series based on our fortunes super coolsies. Worked on Baku all through lunch because Jisu-san was studying. Then fabric…worked a lot on fabric, wah. Theeennn…more sanding Baku. Brief break for ASA meeting. Maru-kouhai-chan-san told me we were having meetings every other week now, when I asked if the meeting last week had been canceled, and then I was added to the mailing list so hopefully I’ll get those now, wah. Then moar Baku time until like…I dunno ten-ish. Then went home and worked on those feet drawings until like two. And then sleep.
So much ded today. I fell asleep in Figure and almost in metal which would have been bad because demos of gun blue wah ;o;! Had crit in painting….almost…done…I think…wah. Sensei wants us to get canvases and new subject materials by Thursday @_@!
Did some photo stuff after that on m way to dinner. 1. Actually ate dinner for once and 2. ate alone next to some noisy people wah. Then…the cold trek back to the art building. It’s been pretty cold lately. No complaints here. None at all. Bring it on.
The cold never bothered me anyway.
Worked on ceramics for a bit. FINALLY trimmed the last of my bowls and then was going to FINALLY finish glazing cups for cone ten firing buuuuuuut that didn’t end well. I mean I guess I’m just physically exhausted because I felt pretty awake but I tried to life one of the glaze buckets to put back on the shelf aaaaand we didn’t make it. Soooo there was about five gallons of toxic glaze all over the everything. And I’m just standing there freaking the fuq out like hokaiomgwatdowaahhh
Imean clean it up yes clean
wait but I have to tell someone we’re out of iron saturate wah
textingtei-sempai for labtech’s number WAIT WAH NO wHY wasthatmyfirstthought
right look for phone numbers on the kiln sheets
yep not there
op but there’sthe number for lab tech’s prodigy-good-at-everything
boyfrand should I
Burea-san yes good text her maybeshewillknowthings
texting yes good now start clean with wat with sponges? hokai yes good like scrubbing the decks with a toothbrush
also finish glazing cup and put away glazes? sure why not
aaaaah Burea-san has come to my rescue yay I am saved
"Ooooohhhhh….I’m going to find a custodian."
Right. We have those. And they have mops. And things…that…clean floors and…other various things yes good right you do that and I will…keep sponging stuff yes.
So I calmed down by that point. I think that the fact that my first thought was literally to deal with it by myself says a lot about me. I absolutely hate relying on other people. I don’t even think about it. Also I’ve legit like never ever messed anything up relatively badly before college so I totes have no idea how to deal with stuff like this. Warui gekusei ni natta ;_; I never had to rely on anyone before except for stuff I wasn’t expected to do like keep a roof over my head of course. Even now…well my text to Burea-san went along the lines of, “Hey yo I wrecked all the shit, think it’s be totes kai if I just clean it up?” wtf is wrong with me oh right raised in isolation from the world.
Needless to say I didn’t finish glazing my cups…I stayed and helped the custodian clean the everything for the next 1.5 hours until the building closed (he was done at that point). He took care of the floor with a mop (which was the majority of it) and I cleaned the tables and chairs and stuff. And after he was done with the floor (“It’s ready, ma’am!” wah such cutsies) I finished up the…everything around it ahahahaha. I also cleaned the floor by the wheels a bit because uguuu GHIBLI MOVIES TAUGHT ME THAT CLEANING MAKES PEOPLE LIKE YOU DO NOT BE ANGRY WITH ME WAH I AM THE SORRIES mai arms are the weaks and frails for I am a stick who has only lifted tablet pens uguu ;^;! My hands are stained red to prove it…!
ALSO IT WAS FREE PANCAKE DAY AND NO ONE WOULD GO WITH ME SO I DID NOT GET FREE PANCAKES AND wah today was just very sort of sad making. u.u
And even after all this I still don’t get to sleep on time ahahaha.
Kigu, Perry, Katanagatari, food and tomodachi…all you need from life whenyouresnowedinandcantgoanywhere
Day 762: Versus Basuke & Explosions
Uwah went to a basketball game today. It…didn’t…suck. I mean, fishing and competitive swimming are another matter but it looks like I can at least enjoy basketball. Also made me realize how much I hate American football. Ugh. Those games last 6ever, there’s no action AND they’re outside. Gross.
It was a bit of a challenge finding out where I was supposed to go and all but I eventually met up with the others from the honors society. Also pizza whoop whoop. Went to sanding after that…and then Yaya came over and we watched Katanagatari. Took a break to go eat and that took way longer than expected so we only watched one more when we got back…Next episode is the infamous episode 7. Let the suffering begin ahahaha.
Mou, even though I spent all day doing stuff I still have so much left to do tomorrow. Gotta take some more photos, gotta finish trimming my bowls, gotta finish sanding and if all goes well which it won’t I’d like to work on those feet drawings…Uguu.
Also ate waaaay too much and now my stomach is legit on the verge of exploding. Mou. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten to this point before but it’s not even like I ate a bunch I don’t think…Not that much more than normal. I guess it’s just because I haven’t been eating so my stomach shrunk uguu. :’D
Aaaah also have to email that chick about my cosplay friggin going on two years with nothing except my stolen money and now she won’t even talk to me…?!?!!? No fricken mames. Also jobs. Yeah, I should do that so my parents will get the fuck off my case. I’m so fucking tired of them badgering me about it. Like, yo, no one wants out of this hellhole more than I do, okay? Lay off.
Days 760-761: Versus Ripped
Ahahahaha I just went through two entire days on my dash because I haven’t been on tumblr in two days because fawk school hoooly. My Q just went from 13 to 37 ahaha.
Metal…was sooooo tired. Even though it was nice and cold. But got a lot of sanding done. Then lunch with Jisu-san. There wasn’t much to eat..Then figure…was better than last time. And then painting…my painting is…looking quite a bit better. Sensei kind of always skips over me for the most part when he’s going around talking to everyone in the class. I’m going to just assume that’s a good sign. l’D
Sanded after class. Had to get the two pieces ready to weld together so I could do that tomorrow before the welding deadline at 5p. Uwah. Oh, also did some ceramics. Had to do another sketchbook entry. Got back home around 11 30 aaaand was ded.
Ceramics whoo~ I think…yeh. My burn started hurting randomly so I washed and wrapped it. Loaded the kiln for bisque firing. Then glazed some cups. Then in photo…photo. Tsumaranai. Then went to get a quick lunch and helped out with the JSA bake sale. Then metal. All the metal. @_@ Totes gettin ripped from sanding awww yeh.
Then…went home and slept…and then JSA movie night, whoo~ Even thought everyone voted to watch Adrift in Tokyo (twice) kaichou had us watch the Once Piece movie…Z or something. Def a little miffed about that, not because I particularly wanted to see the other movie or anything but because that’s exactly what he complains about moto-kaichou so it’s kind of like…wait…Also there was a puhi…! Wah~
Got back…checked tumblr…and sleep time. Tomorrow I’m going to a real live basketball game and I’m afraid that it will either be boring as fawk or ahahahahaeverythingiskurokoIamtwelve. Ehehe.
Days 758-759: Versus Burns and Frozen
Uguuu I burned myself on my metal sculpture ;^;! It was a bit cold so I was using my sculpture to warm my hands but there’s that hole in dress shirts right before the cuff and ahaha my arm did not appreciate that. So that happened.
Lunch~ Found out Jisu-san is asexual like me wah omg my first ace friend I am the happies. She also had more bad news about the skunk-san. l’D
Then in figure wow didn’t make anything even remotely good but sensei did extend the deadline for the feet drawings yay~ And in painting…we’re just…no. We’re not a painter. We shouldn’t try to be. But there were cookies because art reception for the art history lectures yay~ I wish I could have gone but I had to suffer through figure during that time. :’D
After this…worked on ceramics. Had a piece of gum for dinner awww yeah. But then Yaya asked if I wanted to go eat with her otou-san who was driving through so I was laik awww yeh. And we had steak and it was the best thing ever. Then…returned…and sleep.
Okay so I woke up at like six this morning so I could go work on ceramics this morning before class since we had a deadline today and like wow it was the first morning I really felt awake in 6ever. Maybe because of the steak. Maybe because it was nice and cold. But it was pretty great. Ceramics crit went well, too.
Photo was…p boring…I was on my phone and/or half asleep half the time…mou. Finished glazing some things for the wood firing during break, then went to eat with Jisu-san and Kurisu-san.
Then fabric. Got quite a bit done today. I def think I should finish within the next two class periods…tabun. And after that was J-club’s White Day meeting…though…maa, it was a bit disappointing, truthfully. Buuuut I got one of fuku kaichou’s dericious matcha cupcakes aaahhh so good~ Also, you know, it was fun. Not like I’m in it for the candy.
Went home after. To-san transferred in money for rent. Went to the store for aisu with Hana-chan. Then…looked for jobs…to no avail. Grah. I am going to end up on the streets. Maa, I hear being a hobo in Hawaii is pretty nice, maybe I’ll go there. I’ll just use all the money I get from announcing that I’m graduating to buy a plane ticket, yeh.
I need sleep. Also food. I forgot to eat dinner…but now it’s sleep time.
Hnnnnngggg iiiiiit’s my favourite time of year in the philosophy departmeeeent…! #magnolias
