when your blue printer cartridge runs out of ink and you carefully select shots with lots of blue in them and print them out and watch the colour warp oh yeah no need for $8 film
sitting at the edge of the extreme club with a macbook pro and orange juice and my notebook looking at 12 Extreme 40 catamarans racing over at the Promontory at Marina Bay. Super thankful to have gotten the chance to cover this so I really want to do a good job, so I thought maybe I’d post something to get my thoughts in order.
Kind of sad, though, that there aren’t too many people watching the furling and unfurling of the foresails and listening to the nearly-thunderous rip of the kevlar-canvas material. Okay, I’m waxing lyrical. But admittedly I feel quite tumblr-y HAHAHA sitting with a macbook (yeah a silver laptop always helps) in more casual workwear with the breeze knotting my hair (I can’t see myself in the mirror so I’m gonna pretend it’s a pretty mess instead of pretty messy, just kidding), by a bay (not sea but it’s still water).
jibs/tacks/gennakers/sails, think I’ve a long way to go til I understand the technicalities of this sport.
Sent off most of the guys to army this week, and boy has it gotten quiet around haha, since most of them are responsible for all moments of spontaneous-let’s-go-chill-and-catch-a-movie-ity. Still picturing all of them with hair though, hahaha.
Learning that, sometimes sacrifices have to be made. Work, zhapgormei and Hisaishi concert clashing on the 15th, and so many promises of dinner that I suddenly can’t fulfil, will have to learn how to sort it out.
new territory this week, but more permanent. Makes me glad, though, that I think I did appreciate my school life - socially, whether or not academically - because we’re in a whole new ball game, almost for good, and it’s going to be filled with lots of the big I-word Independence.
Hope I can get over my awkwardness/shy-ness around people I’m not familiar with, and people who appear to be so different and so far off from me. ): learning to be flexible too, to throw away the schedule that I set for myself this year, and work (ha ha pun) my way through the next few months.
After being on the receiving end of xenophobia in GC, conversing to the guy behind the counter in my mother tongue really made my duck noodles - oily, but somehow good- and supermarket gains “taste like happy”. (‘:
Picture: This breathtaking view from the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, shows a thick blanket of smoggy fog smothering Dubai. The mist almost completely covers the skyscrapers which dominate the skyline.

this is the post where after my first day of work, I declare in a philosophical manner that life is one big canvas and I want mine to be colourful and vibrant, to inspire people and go where no man has ever gone before.
…SORRY NO. Brain dead enough, I’m just posting because I can’t even remember what I did last week and I know I want to remember all the stuff I do (okay, so maybe the school diaries they forced us all to buy weren’t such a bad idea now)!
Glad to have gotten to know about this job from Hian, OT-ed 4hours but it was a good exp. Anddddd thank goodness I can appreciate the work of my artist! I CAN TELL THEY ARE TREES AND SEE THE TEXTURE. (this is where I sound completely art-stupid and I hope my boss doesn’t see this) Felt abit more independent today, although I was clearly the youngest person in the exhibition hall and a little intimidated by the art glamazons walking around, not to mention being unable to identify famous curators from here and there.
tmr we open for the public! Maybe this is where we try to make art accessible, to let everyone understand the techniques and crazy things artists have to do in order to do their art. Like in winter, he literally has to blow on his oil tubes to unfreeze it. While in a secluded Russian forest. Respect, really.
Had a cool end to the day though! Because I OT-ed I ended at the same time as my friend, and I hopped over two stops to meet her for late supper. C: And met Cass for lunch two stops before I started work! Hope I’m this blessed with meal kakis frequently (‘:
