I'm now at my dad's house until monday when mum'll pick me up. I still can't drive into town as I had the remainder of my dissolving stitches taken out and a new patch placed over my wound on wednesday. Basically I can't drive incase the seatbelt upsets the bandage thus making everything a bit messy. Dagnabbit!
And yes, they were taken out on wednesday. dean_r's birthday! Yes indeed! I was particularly peeved off cause I roamed through both Fordingbridge and Alderholt for some big envelopes in which to send off my gifts to him, and found nothing. I also spent ages in a queue at the post office there to retrieve a letter that was sent to me in a way that an uncollected parcel is sent. I.e a card is given to the collector with directions on where to go and of when it should have been collected by. My parcel, it turns out was a letter. Yes, a letter (it could have just been posted through my letterbox) and was sent 3 days before my birthday, so besides waiting in the queue for ages, I was starting to wonder if they had sent it back. I've been unable to collect for a while. I eventually get to the front and then I get told I'm supposed to go up to the sorting office which is further up the road. Sheesh. :p
I get there, hand in my card. Damn, I really thought it was gonna be a parcel or something. Til I realised it said on the card that it was a letter that was sent to me. And I have to pay £1.20 for the letter. Okay...
It turns out, the letter was from the Bournemouth Arts Institute.
Now I haven't exactly told anyone yet, cause I don't think I'd make good animator material. I'm not sure if I'm ready for that or have the stamina. But I got a conditional offer a few weeks ago from the institute. Cool. Oh, and just yesterday I got a letter suggesting I reply to them about wether I want to enrol or not. I just feel more securer on the illustration course at southampton. Thats probably because I know a good friend on my course right now who's going straight to southampton to do the animation side. So we can be there for each other. Aww. ;) It may not be a good idea but it's securer for me. And also for Adam. He didn't exactly feel ready for university either.
Anyhoo, this letter I paid £1.20 for, from the institute it seems was a letter informing me about the interview and that the date had changed. Take in to account that this letter was sent when Dean was visiting me last month and that they had already rung me up to tell me it was on the 19th instead of the 13th (march). You see though, that was the thing. They had already rung me. I just paid £1.20 for a letter informing me of a changed date for the interview which a.) I had already gone to anyway, and b.) they rung me up to tell me anyway. All of this was due to the fact that the letter in question was simply un-stamped. Hmm, thanks a lot Bournemouth Arts. I was hoping to buy myself a 99p Mr. Whippy cone with that money.
Hmmph! Talk about rude.
Okay, anyways, now thats off. I'm at my dad's. Still waiting to send off Dean's parcel after leaving it too late yesterday. I just suck. I drew him a card though which I hope he'll like, or at least find amusing. It's made me realise though that I seriously need to be taught some techniques on the ways of using tria marker pens. I love them. I see so much potential in them, only sometimes I feel like I can't do anything with them. Does anyone know what I mean? I need some help on how to use them to make some nice effects. Abby! Think you could help out mate?
Last week, I was gonna type out how amazingly a quaint little Fordingbridge shop sold their very last set of architecture tria markers for a good price. ^^ Needless to say my mum told me they were selling them and I didn't believe her. I always thought you had to go to a big art store for them or had to get them off the internet. Well, I'm just wrong. Wrong, but pleased. Extra colours!
I'm gonna go draw an easter Crash picture now. I still have an Usagi easter picture I drew last year for a good friend on lionking.org, but I never got the chance to finish it. This is how sucky I am. I'm just bad. :(
But not anymore...I just lost a lot of juice right now. I need something which'll encourage me again. Everything's just happening so fast for me right now that sometimes well, I just keep relaxing to stop myself panicking and therefore don't get a lot done. Or so it seems with me. Some people think I've done a lot. It's either this or I'm just fed up with my scanner right now.
You'll all see a lot of work on my deviant account soon.
