Second thing, they're....all...well, for looking forward to Children's Lit so much, there's not really much I really like in it. Also, it includes Treasure Island. D:
I kind of vaguely hoped that the Brit Lit teacher would find a way to stick some Michael Winterbottom in somehow (because he likes showing films) but not such luck. No random Eccles, John Simm or Steve Coogan for me... Or in general. I mean, they could have ended up in one of the films somehow. But all the film adaptions of the books are them-less. There is one with David Morrissey in it, though, so not a total loss. Also, Jonathan Pryce.
%#$@%$ Treasure Island.
The final project had BETTER be something like 'write your own children's book'.
And I also have three banners to do for each floor and then info banners maybe? And invites. Because I'm the advertiser or something because Bailey thinks I'm a proper artist but I'm not.
I need sleep but I should stay up and draw but I have another day tomorrow of energetic games and fucking shit. BUT NO TIME.
Every morning is 9:00 and every night is until 7 at least. I have to draw two more breakfast things, a grilled cheese lunch and two open mics. And Matt was helping me with the invites but he's not allowed to now because I have to do them? For PRC? Because Matt can't do advertising even though he's up to date on his work and has free time? FML. It takes me too long to do an art. I guess I am a pushover, fuck. What kind of evil villain lets people walk on them?
The kind who's only VP, that's what.
I want to stop time and have time to do things.
Also I want my own scanner.
And to have prep time back to use for prep, stupid boogie practise, I need it to draw in, for serious, when am I doing things? I can't even think right now. This is, like, my mental diarrhea spewing out here, I hardly know what's going on
JUST GO TO BED.
Actually, non-DW first.
( Non-Doctor Who )
( First Doctor Who dream )
( Second Doctor Who dream )
I just remembered another dream that I had and forgot to transcribe.
( This is it. )
Basically, that's what this post is about. I've never been in charge of stuff before and now I suddenly have to design a billion things. I think they should warn the VP of how many things they're going to have to design. it's reasonably okay, as I'm somewhat arty, but I still don't really understand colours or anything. If it comes to that, I'm boned. I just need to make sure to finish all this stuff before I run out of time.
Also, Sky Gilbert misplaced one of my Playwriting assignments so I need to rehand them all in to him if I want to boost my shameful Playwriting mark. Oh, for the days when I could get a mark of 94 in a Playwriting class. But seriously, I desperately need the extra two marks it's going to give me. Bah.
OMG I WAS SO WORRIED THAT I'D HAVE TO READ THOMAS HARDY IN MY 20TH CENTURY BRITLIT COURSE BECAUSE HE'S A FLIPPING STAPLE AND MY TEACHER FOR THE COURSE IS OBSESSED WITH MICHAEL WINTERBOTTOM WHO IS IN TURN OBSESSED WITH HARDY. AND MY BRITLIT TEACHER SAID WE'D BE WATCHING FILMS AS PART OF THE COURSE AND I ONLY REALISED TODAY THAT THAT MIGHT MEAN I HAVE TO WATCH JUDE AGAIN.
But then I looked it up and discovered that it's Part 2 which means it's the 1950's to 2000. So I'm vastly relieved. Hopefully, when I do Part 1, he won't be the teacher because despite how much I love Christopher Eccleston (and the brief David Tennant cameo), I really can't sit through that much depression and lack of storyline again. Or, you know, try to READ that lack of storyline.
Not a Hardy fan. But I know I'll have to read him in school eventually. Bah. Well, at least I'll get to wait a year.
Also, I' doing a zine for my 2D SART class and it's going to be a DW story told from the point of view of the Master and the Doctor. The art on the cover has to be a print carved out of a lino block and I'm worried of how it'll turn out. It's going to be the Master on the back and the Doctor (Ten) on the front. I'll put it up on DA once I finish it. The cover and the innards, I mean. The innards will have art too, of course. It's a zine. That's what they're FOR. Anyway, I'm going to write the story next week which is also Reading Week for Guelph. Does anyone want to get together next week?
I'll also use this post to beg whoever sees this journal to read the Our Wacky Roommate story series that Paisley, Sharmy and I write because it's sort of actually funny. I dunno. I'm an attention whore. It's owr_fiction in my groups...
Marion...are you going to post the cookies?
I hate you, Leah, for explaining grammar. Or math. Now I'm going through all my fanfiction and deleting every instance of a ~. The worst bit is that it SERIOUSLY fucks up the HTML and nothing works anymore.
Also: fanfiction.net has a new function. It takes down the statistics of my readers. It's terribly diverting. Apparently, my readers are from the following countries, in order of most frequent to least: USA, UK, France, Australia, Austria, Canada, Switzerland, Israel, Germany. Most people read Fresh and the second most read Silly. Both of my fluff fanfics. So much for my secret aspiration to be taken seriously as a real comedy writer. No, it's fluff for me all the way. My path seems so clear now.
Crap, I really need to do my uni readings. I'm so slack. I need motivation.
Okay. Okay. Totally paranoid here. Because I've slipped MAJORLY on school crap. I know, I KNOW I need to get back on it, but Film alone has slipped to 62. And seriously....I can see not only Guelph rejecting me from consideration, but Bishop's and Laurier seeing my marks and rejecting me as well. And.....my parents will....well my dad will be horrendously disappointed in me and my mum will just kind of... give me a, "Oh, well, what I expected all along" sort of thing.
I can't DEAL with that, honestly.
Also, radishes are awesome.
Um, and I was looking at Universities recently, and I think I'm going to be applying to York, Dalhousie and Acadia, because they all seem rather awesome, especially/mostly the ones in Nova Scotia. I'm also excited for Christmas, although the present-getting thing is overwhelming me slightly. But I CAN do it...I know I can, somehow...
So much money to be needed....I will do cards first and get people gifts later, because I will have money then. Is that okay with people? The cards will be pretty epic, I hope. They will all be done on, like, Friday and Saturday...and I suppose sunday, for a while.
I am trying to type up my self-indulgent story based on what I WISH happened on PtbaTTD and I will post it here once I do.
