I'm the queen of smudged eye makeup. 12 hour school days break down the hardest of make up. I mean, how much time do I have in the morning to get it perfect anyway? I've learn to embrace the mess. Hi all, I haven't been blogging much (clearly). I would promise to blog more but we all know I've done that before and it hasn't really worked out. I haven't had the urge to blog lately, it's probably due to the fact that Qianying is away and well, school.
Anyhow, excuses and all. I try to blog every now and then because I know that I like to read my old posts and when I don't blog for a period of time, I forget things and I regret not writing them down. I like remembering things but memories tend to evolve into something else when you don't capture them at the right time. I write things down because I want the truth! I hate being unable to remember the exact thing.
I had a very good week. It wasn't particularly special or anything. It was good because I was in a good mood the whole week and that's really saying something. That's seven whole days without begin upset at anything so it was a good week.
This week has also been tiring. I woke up at 630am and sept at 1am everyday. I know young people are supposed to be able to run on minimal sleep but I run on maximum sleep. When I push myself too hard, I just shut down and I lie somewhere and nap. I can sleep anywhere, it is no issue for me. Ryan doesn't understand how I sleep on the chairs in the lab because they're uncomfortable. I just close my eyes and curl into a ball and sleep.
Anyway, I got up at 530am on Tuesday because I helped Ryan with his shoot and it was a really early one. We shot at the Dairy Farm Quarry (see above). All I can say is that the Dairy Farm Quarry is one of those places in Singapore that looks nothing like Singapore. Vast green fields and towering rock formations. It is quite humbling. I was so sleepy on shoot but I managed. I sat on a tiny stool in front of the screen, holding a large umbrella and wearing 3D glasses. I helped check the 3D. It was kinda fun and it just reminded me about how glad I am to have finished Creative Portfolio. I really hated filming in 3D even though it was new and I was learning things. I just wish that Creative Portfolio was a module for us to work solely on our own portfolio instead of filming something new and adding to the other projects that the other modules give. I was so excited for Creative Portfolio and then it started and I wasn't so excited anymore...
The filming was quite smooth and they don't have to reshoot so HURRAY! Reshooting has got to be the worst nightmare of all. The day was quite calm until we left the place. A few of us stopped outside to flag a cab. It was a three lane road and the cab that was available was on the furthermost lane. At first the driver ignored us, but then he made a last minute swerve to the lane closest to us. A motorcyclist drove straight into the back of the cab and the rider kind of just flopped to the ground. We were on the street and I saw everything so I was kind of stunned. We called the ambulance and I thought I saw his jacket soaked through with blood. Later I realized it was red paint and he actually scrapped his knee. His helmet really saved him. The ambulance never came because the cabbie and the motorcyclist made us cancel it, they wanted to settle it amongst themselves. I've never seen an accident upfront until Tuesday and I don't want to see another. People are so fragile. Please always drive safely. Please don't run any red lights and please don't make sudden last minute turns. Car accidents are terrible.
We took a bus back to school. I don't think I'll be cabbing for a while now.
School has been quite tough on Ryan so we haven't been going out that often. For some reason, the workload he has is significantly heavier compared to when I took the semester. He always has so much to do so. We did make an exception though, we watched Catching Fire last Sunday. It was beautiful. It really was. Book 2 was my favourite so I loved every bit of it. Ryan said the ending was too sudden but it ended as such in the book so I expected it. The next movie we're watching is The Hobbit. Ryan doesn't want to see Frozen. He would if he had no work to do but he does so )'; Oh Qianying, why did you have to leave me?!
School = ^
Sometimes we don't want to do any work so we end up talking to each other and getting everyone to play hangman on the class board. LOL.
My kitty and I have been bonding. I've been feeding him most generously and I think he's been eating like a king. I ran out of the cat food I bought initially and mum said I wasn't allowed to buy anymore. So I was wrecking my brain on what to do for days that we had no left over food. Then my dad comes home with a big bag on kitty feed on Saturday. I love my dad. He said I looked so pathetic begging my mum to let me buy food that he just bought it for me. One of the days, he got a whole kampung chicken to feast on. Ryan complained and said that my cat eats better than he does hahahaha!
I love my kitty. Today I fed him cream and he begged for more. Then he sat on my lap and stayed there for a good hour or so.
Be kind to animals everyone!
If you're not going to feed the strays, don't chase them or hit them.
I will cut you.
