Silently Spoken

I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. - Anne Frank

It’s a bit of both; sunshine and rain.

Before we start this entry, I need you to know that I won’t be able to write diary entries every day. This may depend on my mood and how busy I am over all. Yesterday, I spent my whole entire day finishing up my FMP work, fixing up my evaluation and checking over my animation. It also consisted of ironing my clothes for college and packing my bag and doing my nails. Yes, I decided to put nail polish on yesterday. I figured, my nails are cut down to stubs and to get them back to their normal length, I needed to put varnish on. Believe it or not, putting on nail varnish helps your nails to grow faster; well it works for me anyway.

I blooming love the feeling of heavy weight being lifted off my shoulders. I submitted my FMP today, signing it off making it all official and stuff. There were three bloody fat sketchbooks, a zine, an animation and a ring binded folder. If I don’t get a distinction for this thing, I am going to seriously have a massive tantrum. I worked bloody hard, lost out on a lot of sleep, put up with a really slow windows laptop (I’m used to a mac) and not to mention all the money I spent on materials to complete the damn thing. I’m just happy to have it off my hands and out of my hair (very long hair).

As soon as I submitted my FMP, the tutors chucked another project at us. This project is not as major as the one before, but it’s still important. This project is called a live brief and it’s a project set by an actual client for us designers and we have to complete it in a short amount of time. This one was set today and is due in for Wednesday morning. I know, it’s a bloody short amount of time, but it has to be done. To make it a tad bit easier, the tutors have re-arranged our timetable for the week. So from Monday to Wednesday I have college from nine to twelve. That’s a massive change since today and tomorrow I would have probably got home around six in the evening.

My new live brief is called ‘The Big Hoot’. It’s about these giant owls that are going to be placed all over town in order to raise money and is supported by the Children’s Hospital. Our college have been given a giant owl to design which will then be stuck in front of our college for a period of ten weeks. The purpose of this owl and our design has to be talking about our studios, which are called WE_ARE_FEED. Our owl is aimed at a target audience of 16-19 and has to be appealing to the eye. Oh and this live brief is a competition between my graphics group and the other graphics group. So there are about 45 of us up for winning.

But to tell you the truth, I really don’t care about winning. This is the rainy part to my day. Usually I would be all pumped up for doing a brief like this and do more work than expected. However, today wasn’t one of those days. I felt tired and sleepy and of course living in the UK the weather has been pretty shit as well. Really heavy rains have been hitting the area I’m from. Even though I love the rain and don’t mind it, I still found myself down. It’s different to those blank spots that I described before. I feel like it’s more... mysterious. Also I find that these tend to fade away within about a day whereas the blank spots stay for as long as something really cheers me up. Sometimes I hate having depression. Why can’t it just leave me the flip alone?!

Moving on swiftly. I was researching into different weight loss techniques on YouTube and I came across this homemade drink that is supposed to help. It’s basically a cup of lukewarm water, 1 tbsp of honey (for taste), 2 tbsp of lemon juice and some black pepper. Drink this every morning on an empty stomach and apparently you can see some changes taking place after a period of time. I’ve done this for two mornings in a row and golly gosh, I actually do feel a difference. I haven’t step foot on the scales though because every time I seem to do that I kind of get unmotivated to carry on. So I shall weight myself after a month to see if it has helped or not. I really hope this remedy works though.

Anyway, I’m going to end this diary here, because I see a few competitions on Movellas that I really want to enter and I need to plan them out and write it all up before the deadline. Then I also have some owl designs to make real quickly and iron my outfit for tomorrow. I just hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow. I have this really cute top, but it’s really not for wearing in the rain. I shall also spend some time starring out of the window and winder why I am feeling this empty pit within me.

The best way to see what tomorrow brings is to sleep through the night.
