ithika: (the merch is sick)
I think that’s a song in a Futurama episode.
Anyway, I handed in my folio on Friday... )

And it’s done! I’m free till second semester starts. Awesome. Weirdly, I’ve done an entire semester and haven’t gotten a single mark back for any of the assignments that I’ve submitted. I’ve no idea how this semester has gone! Strange. I’m sure it’s fine?

Man, I am bad at updating my journal these days. I started writing this on Saturday! Now it’s Thursday!

So anyway, now folio is over and I get to be An Interesting Person again. I’m happy with that. Although I feel like just chilling all the time since this semester has been so intense. Directly in line with that, on Saturday I brought some new PJs. I was in desperate need. Seriously. I am not going to put in a picture of my old pjs, but they were pink, white, green and orange striped. I don’t think I need to say any more. So I lashed out and while Gavin & I were chilling at Garden City, I brought some pants from Peter Alexander. Funny thing is, they aren’t even PJ pants. They are day pants. Apparently. Although they are velour so since I am not Zapp Brannigan I wouldn’t really wear them out. Except maybe to the gym? Anyway they are luxurious luxurious pj pants. Really soft. They are probably the most boring of the things that PA sells, but I am tired of flannelette pyjamas. (I got the dark grey ones. As much as I like purple, the purple velour was waay too much.)
And then I brought a singlet from target to match because I refuse to pay $25 for a black singlet, even if it is pretty and has a cute little rose on it... (The target singlet cost $15 and is grey & stripey. Pretty nice and $10 cheaper.. Win! When you have paid $50 for pants it is good to save on singlets. I know, I am as scandalised as you are. Except I have amazingly soft non-pj pj pants.)

Cut to make this post less long and boring )

Oh yeah. It was Gavin’s birthday last wednesday, I brought him Ugg boots and managed to keep it as a real surprise. Yay! He also is amazing, because he spent all of his day off (he doesn’t work wednesdays) helping me make my model awesome. He is pretty good at model making. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, since doing intricate, tiny work really accurately is basically his job. I would expect that cutting and gluing together an architectural model is easier than sculpting fillings.

Went to an engagement party on Saturday night, for one of Gavin’s oldest friends. It was lovely! Hannah (one of the couple) is an amazing cook and her mum is a coeliac, so she baked all of these amazing mini-mini cupcakes (they looked so professional and delicious!) and Gavin could eat them all! Seriously, they were the most adorable cupcakes I have ever seen.

I’m working in earnest on my online portfolio now. I think I’m going to make base it around wordpress, although I haven’t decided for sure yet. I may just code it all. I don’t really like the idea of presenting my work in a blog style. It just doesn’t seem that professional. Since I’ll be using it to get a job, this is pretty important. So it will have to be an exercise in minimalist sophistication. Muted, pastel colours, probably. Hopefully I can also make it not boring. I’m only going to post pictures when I’m happy with it. So that it’s more impressive? I don’t know.

Anyway this post is getting really long so I think I’ll wrap it up there.
