There was a presentation from CCAC today in art class. i was happy for tiffalynx that they are, in fact, a VERY good school for interior design. not my cup of tea, but then again, im an illustration major. the rest of class time was spent drawing...but on the long break, Reagan, Jaime and i went to the Pavillion Cafe where i bought some Pocky *chocolate covered biscuit sticks..an asian favorite =D * and an orange juice which tasted slightly firmented. Reagan's gay/jewish friend Tom came over and we talked about how much Johnen Vasquez clones suck. Also, Jaime would not look like a dyke if she cut her hair short. James, with that head of hair, i bet you could get a good chunk of change for the ammount of hair you have to sell =P
my art teacher likes to draw all over my paper and make the wrong corrections. he has some valid points, but he completely redraws my drawing..i mean COMPLETELY, and i find quite a few flaws in his corrections that are glaringly obvious. *sigh* his actual paintings are pretty decent, i just wish he would apply that talent to critique.
Speaking of critiques, i didnt have an essay to critique in english so i corrected another persons, Jennifer who sits next to me. we agree that the teacher has a really stupid way of correcting. sure shes a hardass and thats expected, but her corrections are often a little TOO harsh. apparently a 2 line sentence is a "fragment" to her. also, my essay was "too wordy". were the sentences not short enough? im sorry. ill make them 3 words long next time.*growls*... she also tells everyone that their work is "elementary" and never gives anyone above a 12/15 points on an essay. apparently "A" papers are nonexistant. *sighs*
i growled in english aloud when we discussed this. i felt embarrassed but the other students were like "my thoughts exactly" i should really watch myself though =P
i really need a wuffy boy hug.
i dont wanna do my commissions! RAR!
btw, quicksilver i finally got your payment and ill get that laminated asap =) thanks a bunchies!
