Sorry!! I know my weekly posts are not very organised and come randomly… But the good news is that I’ve tried to make longer and better quality.
As you may have noticed I’ve managed to create an animated GIF… Ok I know I look like I’m poking my eye. But its supposed to be a sincere gesture of apology =(. I look forward to making more animated pics for the blog! You might also notice the blog has gone through some renovation =) I’ll post an update with the before and after thing.
Uni is becoming a little tense again (assessments already?!) and I have a part time job now =) just continuing on at the take away shop. like mentioned I haven’t been looking after “paper me” (that is the name of my character… LAME) and he has been a little angry. He started ranting at me and I feel really bad for completely neglecting him:
(yes this is from one of my previous posts). I’ve noticed he hasn’t gone anywhere really. I mean his always stuck to the white back ground with friends or props. I would be bored and angry at me too. So I took him on a trip to the real world =) here are his vacation pics:
Mouse riding! Bull riding is a little rough for his fragile little paper arms. So he settled to riding the mouse and surfing the web =)
Disco. Paper me is good at picking up chicks with his cool pick up lines like.. ummm… oh… he doesn’t have any =(
Photography lessons. I didn’t let him take any pictures with my camera… hope he won’t get angry at me for that. he did like looking into the lens though… not that there was much to look at.
So yea, I think he enjoyed his visit to the real world =) Happy face!
Now to something that happened at UNI:
So you know those friends you make for group work? I’ve made a few good ones over the last few sems. But you know how after first year, people branch off to different subjects and well, you don’t know them anymore? yea…
The other day at UNI, i bumped into one of those “better friends” meaning he was one of the closer friends at UNI but not CLOSE… Normally, I pretend I can’t see these type of people because its awkward. There’s nothing to say and anything you say is pretty stupid:
So here’s me trying to avoid eye contact
MISSION FAILED: My friend sees me and obviously, I have to say hi and stuff (I made him look so good in this drawing… he looks like a prince charming…)
He introduces me to his friend and offers the choice to call them by a nickname… His friend then says oh you can call (friend) (friend’s nickname) and they start laughing and talk about how these names originated (to each other… not me)
So they joke on and the topic isn’t really about names anymore and here I am standing in the middle of the lawn with everyone around me sitting down… How awkward. So i tune out cause well, there isn’t anything I can say.
This is why I avoid eye contact and avoid saying hi to people I haven’t spoke to for AGES. I mean after the initial “hi, how are you doing” it doesn’t seem to go any further. I might as well just make it less awkward by pretending I can’t see you
Basically, I didn’t know what I should do: keep standing in the middle of the lawn, listening to stories of their past or walk away. So I nicely said i needed to go to the library and left.
Lesson learnt: you either (like me) avoid eye contact or keep a good relationship going with every stranger you meet =|
That brings me to the end of a pretty long blog (and bandwidth hogging! look at all the pictures!) I hope this makes up for the time I’ve been away! I’ve already got an idea for the next blog: Mums’ and technology == LOL it was supposed to be today’s post, but i need to cover more things than usual.
EDIT: For memory’s sake, here the blog before renovation:
and here it is after renovations (i think the blog looks much sleekier now! Just need to stop posting such large pictures.):
Anyway, Paper me wants some comments (comments pls!), he gets very little attention here:
