2 blog posts this month, what a disgrace!
I suppose I can do a meta-thing and have a look at why I haven’t been blogging.
It hasn’t been because I haven’t been online. I’m sure if you check out my Tumblr (link at the side), you’ll see I’ve been spending copious amounts of time tanning by my laptop light.
And it hasn’t been because I haven’t done shit all in the past month but tanning by my laptop light because a lot did happen, but I think…
For some reason I don’t deem my life interesting enough to document anymore. I mean, looking back, I used to write about getting coffee after school. But now I don’t even mention that I had an assessment performance for which I didn’t do so well.
Alright so here it is.
On Wednesday past, I had an assessment performance for Script for Performance. I dragged loads of uni friends along so basically on entire wall of the joint was occupied by my Asian friends – not many Asians doing that subject, as you can imagine.
My script, I admit, was shoddy, but I relied on my ability to project my voice to carry me through. I got laughs where I wanted laughs, but my tutor, the sneaky man, saw past my gimmicks and told me I needed to polish up my style and structure.
So I went home and reworked the entire script, starting from the style, going along the structure, the delivery, and even the overall tone.
Perhaps he’ll be proud of me.
Other events that happened was my oral presentation for Hollywood and Entertainment, where I had to give a presentation on the comic book aesthetic in film in regards to Scott Pilgrim. I used my Tumblr as a way to present my work which went better than normal.
I don’t think the essay that I wrote for it was very decent, though.
Apart from uni, I suppose I’m correct in saying not much has been exciting in ways of social life. Everyone’s bunkering down for end of Semester assessments and exams, and being 2nd years, people are actually caring (I am too, just not as obviously. I have a reputation of bad-assery to uphold). I’ve made more and more friends at work which is always a bonus…until they realize how strange I am and shifts become awkward.
Looking forward to the winter holidays, not only because I have my 20th birthday coming up (well this is just terrifying), but because I can sleep in and watch loads of TV basking in the glory of my laptop light.
P.S. Next month marks the coming of winter, and so song name titles will make its appearance again.
P.P.S. I will try to find another 30 day writing challenge or whatnot to up my count and continue my writing.
P.P.P.S. After the assessment date of the script, I’ll post it up here for y’all to enjoy.
