Welcome to My Life - Day 9 - The Weekend (19/11/2011)

Well I haven't done a lot today :P

I had a nice lie-in and spent the vast majority of today on my computer surfing the net as always.

I suppose the most productive thing I've done today is going to buy some more food and using the change from that to do my weekly laundry.

Oh I also filled in that Doctors form I got from one of the local GPs yesterday.

Aside from that its been a pretty lazy day :3

Thats all for now thanks for reading :).

Welcome to My Life - Day 8 - Film Planning and Shopping (18/11/2011)

Ok so today I went to my morning lecture for Communication skills in digital media and we were assigned the tas of creating a 4 to 5 minute film on the subject of our choosing. We decided to do a film about a man having a strange dream.

We booked the equipment for next week when we would be doing the filming, we are not allowed to edit the film so we have to film each shot once in the order it will apear in the film.

After that I set about going shopping for some more art suplies, I've been meaning to do it for a while and because of the tasks I've been set for my drawing module it seemed like I couldn't put it off any longer, I went into town twice the first time to buy 2 new A2 sketch books one to continue my work and one to start building my journal as well as some more indian ink for my personal work. The second time was because I had forgotten to pick up some lighter inks and something to do printing with.

On the way home I stopped off my one of the local co-ops to do my food shopping. I got the usual as well as some chicken wings which I was in the mood to try and cook as well as seeing how that tasted. I managed to cook some alright but after trying them I found that they weren't all that bad but I dont think I'll be having any more, so I ended up throwing them away, all well they didn't cost that much :/.

After that I stopped off at one of the near by local Doctors surgeries to pick up a registration form, I've been meaning to register with a doctor for some time now and since I was near by I thought I might as well do it now.

I realised on the way home that I had completely forgotten about my weekly meeting with a woman who helps me to organise my work. So I sent her an e-mail apologising. I also sent an e-mail informing one of my tutors about me compiling my journal.

After that I went to the local shop to pick up some bits and peaces that I needed.

In the end of the day I just sat at home have relaxed after a fairly full week of lecture. :)

Well thats all for now, thanks for reading :).

Welcome to My Life - Day 7 - Another Boring Day (17/11/2011)

Well I guess the main thing I did today was going to my Illustration lecture, We had to produce a caricature of a well known figure from history or modern times. 

I chose George Bush Jr. which seemed kind of like an obvious choice.

I'm rather happy with the pic although I did notice after pinning it up along with everyone else's and comparing them that I' dont seem to be very confident with my mark making, my lines where much lighter and there was a lot less shading so i think thats something I need to work on.

After that I came home and spent the rest of the day either sleeping or surfing the net.

Just another day for me :P.

Well thats all for now, thanks for reading :).

Welcome to My Life - Day 6 - Animatics and Flat Floods (16/11/2011)

Well today was... interesting, at least this afternoon was. Well I started off by getting a shower this morning (something I'd like to start doing more often in addition to my evening showers.

I then went to my Animation lecture which were there wasn't a lot to do due to the fact that this week our lecturer wasn't supposed to be there but the things he had to attend to got put on hold or something so he didn't have time to prepare anything for the lecture.

In the end we decided to do some basic story board for our final project and turn them into an animatic, our tutor showed us how using Photoshop and an older edition of I-Movie since he says the latest version isn't very good for animation purposes.

Me and my group got on pretty well, we didn't manage to get the animatic finish (we plan on getting together next Tuesday to finish it) but we did manage to get the majority done such as scanning and cropping.

After that I came home and after a while went for the weekly viewing night at the Anime and Manga Society.

After that I came home and went about my usual net surfing and minecraft playing when all of a sudden I hear the sound of water, it sounded like someone was pissing against my door, sadly that wasn't the case (I kind of wish it was though). 

Basically a pipe somewhere in my flat had burst sending quite a lot of water leaking through the ceilings in various rooms, it inevitably triggered the fire alarm and the whole building was evacuated temporarily. 

Eventually some guys from the University security and a electrician came around to looks at everything, In the end only a couple of people had to be moved and despite water pouring out of my light switch (I have another luckily) I was given the all clear, just got to let it dry out for a day or so.

And that was my day it turned out somewhat more interesting then I had been anticipating although wether it was in a good or bad way is debatable, thanks for reading :).

Welcome to My Life - Day 5 - Quizes and Captain America (15/11/2011)

Ok so to day I slept it way to late waking up at 2:30pm was not the best move but honestly its not that I was lazy its that a genuinely slept to that time I was flat out fast asleep it was so good but I feel guilty for not getting up earlier and waisting half the day :S.

Aside from that I've been working on a small 500 word essay for my animation module, nothing much I wrote it for last lesson on wednesday but having been given an extension I decided to re-word and re-work it as it will help when I come to write my final learning report for said module.

In the after noon I went to a movie social night that the Anime and Manga Society which I am a member decided the have today. We got to vote on what to watch and the winning movie was the non anime film of Captain America, I'd been meaning to see it for a long while now so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity and I must say I very much enjoyed it :).

I will probably do a more in-depth review when I have some spare time.

After that we attended the local university bar for the weekly quiz night they hold. We where split into groupes of 5 and decided to go against each other as well as all the other groupes> It was really fun and my groupe had a great laugh thinking up weird and random answers to questions we had no clue about. In the end I think we came 3rd from last with the total of 32 out of 60 which is better then we thought we would do :).

After that I came back home and continued my work, I'll pick up on it tomorrow morning since luckily my lecture for it is in the afternoon :).

Well thats about it, I had a lot of fun today :).

Welcome to My Life - Day 4 - Ink Printing and Anime (14/11/2011)

So today was fairly boring I didn't get up to much outside of my lectures.

Today we did some ink printing using various objects in my monday lecture, I wasn't to happy with how they came out though I should really have prepared my things more, I hardly had anything to print with so my work didn't come out to great :/.

After that I went to the monday nostalgia night that the worcester Anime and Manga Society so that was nice to sit back and relax to :), we watched the usual episodes of Trigun, Digimon (season 1) and Megas XLR with offers to watch Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann which reminds me that I really need to get around to watching that series :P.

Aside from that I've been doing the usual net surfing and snack eating of any Uni student :P looking forward to a lie in tomorrow on my day off/study day.

Yep just the usual day for me :3.

Welcome to My Life - Day 3 - Just another day (13/11/2011)

Well todays been the slow usual day, had a nice sleep in till about 1pm then got up and logged on my mac and surfed the net Blogger, Facebook, Youtube and Twitter mostly, I also had the occasional Minecraft session.

I bought some more deodorant today almost ran out got some Lynx: Dry, pretty good but for over £3 each not great pricing.

The main think I did today or at least the most productive was updating my blogs, I;ve been meaning to do these for a long time now so having nothing else to do today I thought "ah what the hell".

This kind of post will be the usual kind you'll see here as i dont get up to epic shit like MCM everyday sadly :(.

But hey I'm doing this for me anyway so who really cares :3.

Well thats all for now I'll try to make daily posts on this blog from here on out as well as review posts etc, thanks for reading :).
