Journal

I'm back! Hopefully!

So, highschool has finally ended for good. Exam results are out; I did rather well (even for my asian mother) and life is just beginning. Already I’ve been away up the coast with friends and have just recently returned from a trip to the paradisaical Vanuatu. Now there’s another two months before university begins and hopefully I can be around here more often :)

Looking forward to being more active once again :)

So.... I haven't been here for a while...

Wow, my last journal entry was 6 whole months ago. Sorry for my absence from this site (if anyone noticed that is :|)

The reason is that the HSC is eating my life really :) The only art I’ve been managing to do is my art major work, which (thank goodness) is now completed.

However, there are still the trial examinations and then the actual HSC exams to go, which won’t be over until mid November :( So I don’t really see myself having much time to do anything vaguely enjoyable if i want to get into the course i want :( I might be able to fit in some shoots this holidays, but it’s a slim chance.

On the upside, after final exams are over I’ll be traveling to Vanuatu so I should come back with some lovely shots for you all :)

Just wanted to pop back in and say hi,…

HSC major work - models

Hey there :)

I’m currently figuring out what I’m going to do for my final major work and I think I want to incorporate some portrait photography into it. Only problem is, I’m not entirely sure how to go about it. I need to find models, and do you think I’d need a studio or is it not entirely necessary? And what about a make-up artist?

Help from anyone experienced in this area would be greatly appreciated :)

ps. If you’re a model or make up artist or have a studio in Sydney and are interested at all in helping out, I’d love you forever ♥ And be totally willing to pay in either time for prints/cd or cash.

french manicures, formals and inspiration.

I just got my nails done :) So I’m typing this really slowly and carefully. My formal is tomorrow night (just the year 11 one). Excitement! Dread! I ♥ my dress.

But anyway, you don’t know this, but i was stressed out for like 2-3 weeks last term, deliberating over whether I was going to drop ancient history or art (I love them both). Maybe you’ll be happy that i finally picked art in the end lol. However i have no ideas for my major work at all and this is the whole point of this entry really, girlish things aside.

What do you look to for inspiration?

Because I’m in dire need of some right about now.

Thinking about the future. (namely, university)

Because it has to come sooner or later. As of next term, I’m officially in year 12. How scary.

I’ve spent the past hour or so reading through university booklets and brochures and scouring the web and so I also thought I’d ask you guys for advice :)

What are you doing in life? Do you enjoy it? How hard exactly is it to get a really good UAI? (if you’re from Australia). Are you currently studying? If so, what?

To give you an idea of what I’m interested in, the subjects I’m doing for my HSC are:

  1. 4unit English (extension 2)
  2. 3unit Mathematics (extension 1)
  3. 3unit Latin (extension 1)
  4. Art

I had to drop business studies and ancient history because I had way too many units :(

Of course, I’m interested in studying visual arts in university, but I’m not su…

romanticism, existentialism and religion :)

So, I’m thinking about doing 4unit English for my HSC. I want to explore the relationship between Existentialism and Religion and basically use it as an excuse to research notions of meaning, because i reckon it’s really fascinating :D Romanticism is just in here, because it’s pretty :P

If anyone can name the authors of all these quotes, then… you’re awesome? and no googling allowed!

Romanticism

You must not misunderstand me, darling,
Who can affirm that God exists?
And yet who can deny it?
Is there not One who upholds and enfolds all things,
Including you, me and himself?
Does not the vault of heaven soar above us?
Does not the solid earth lie firm beneath us?
Do I not gaze into your eyes?
Does not creative life infuse your heart and mind,
Weaving eternal mysteries
Se…

Today...

… I rediscovered old loves

… it was decided that our dog is being put down tomorrow

… I got a text message from an unknown number saying “I love you.”

it's my birthday :)

17! I feel so old :D

ahhh, i’m in the middle of exams :( 2 whole weeks of them, but the good thing is i have none today! so i’m going out and ignoring them :D

once exams are done, i really just wanna create something. I havent done anything in aaaages :(

how are you all?

AWOL and boys.

okay, so i’ve completely been neglecting RB for the past few weeks. I blame it on it being holidays XD sorry!

Now i’m back at school (today’s first day back) I’m going to have much more cause to procrastinate and be distracted by RB :D

Holidays are lovely, there should really be more of them. But i always think i should have made more of them once they’re done. I spent too much time being a teenage girl and moping over silly things like boys.
And i got zero schoolwork done. gah.

If you’ve recently had holidays, how were they?
If not, :P and how’ve you been anyway?

also. I really wanted to make something new, but my computer hates me and is too slow to handle photoshop. sadness :(
