(#13) Weeklies

Today wasn’t bad. Woke up at 9:07 for a 9am tutorial which the tutor didn’t show up for, felt horrible for an hour and a half, cancelled on a friend, then I went back to sleep and slept until 3-something. And I had spaghetti for dinner. Yup. That was pretty much my whole day. Sleep and food. Can’t get any better, right?

(#12) Weeklies

Whew! What a week!

I started out the by listing the assignments I needed to do and which were already done.

Done:

  • Textual Intervention 2 Essay

To Do:

  • Fiction For Children Creative Piece
  • Textual Intervention 2 Creative Piece
  • Creative Voice 2 Essay
  • Creative Voice 2 Creative Piece

To Do With Group Members:

  • Fiction For Children Presentation
  • Scriptwriting For Mainstream Television Script
  • Scriptwriting For Mainstream Television  Presentation

Doesn’t that look terrible? But then I took some of the projects I’m working on outside of school, and decided to make them my Creative Pieces. They got good receptions from peers and lecturers. Moral of the story: To do good in Creative Writing, just write whatever the fuck you want and then make it fit the criteria somehow. Now my To Do (Alone) list has been cut in half. Things are good.

Enough about school! Here are today’s Weeklies:

Maybe I should stop doing these Weeklies? I dunno. But hey, double digits! *high five*

So let’s see what I’ve been loving lately.

IMG_3513Chinese New Year is awesome (or as my mom’s family likes to call it, “Vietnamese New Year”). That was this week. At home, there’s always a party at my grandparents’ house and all the parents give the kids money in exchange for good wishes for the new year. Here, however, my friend’s family and friends visit and she invites a few of her friends (me included) for dinner. Dinner is always delicious, and then we get money just because it’s new year. Am I missing anything? Oh! We’re supposed to wear bright colours. The picture to the left is what I wore. You’re supposed to wear brand new clothes for the brand new year, but I wore my old jeans. But the top I only got the day before at New Look. Bright enough? I tried to tone it down for the rest of the outfit with just grey jeans and a grey jacket.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

Wednesdays I will write about things like TV shows, films, books, websites, YouTube channels, or anything else I happen to be into on any given week. I happened to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in theatres today.

It’s Who You’re With

Yesterday evening, I found myself with one-hundred-and-sixty-six other people in a room not even close to big enough. I was breathing in their sweat and sweating out their spit. We were all gathered in this room awaiting our turn to perform for an audience of fifty-five people–which is supposed to be a lot. It was the Performing Arts showcase, a brilliant medley of dancing, singing, and acting, all around one extremely important holiday: Christmas.
