From the beginning of August up till now, mid October, there's been brithdays after birthdays and etc.. explains why Im so broke..
As for this weekend, I was invited to 2 secondary school buddy's birthday parties~ and though I was informed about a week in advance, i couldnt decide what to give 'em, since it was both 21st birthdays and I wanted to present something special..
First was Tian Yu's, held on Saturday 730pm at his home. At 400pm, there I was, sitting at my desk wondering what to get/buy/do. Just when I thought I might take a trip to junction 8 and have a look around, it started to rain insanely heavy. I was running outta time and I thought I'd just make a card with a cartoony version of him and print+frame my 01-8VI piece since he liked robots~
Thank God I completed the card in time. But I had to get the 01-8VI piece printed~! My home printer sucks so I had to run to the printing shop. When I got there, the shop was closed~!!!!! Great, I totally forgot it was a public holiday~!! There was no other printing shops in Bishan other than Zap. My mind just went blank, staring at the closed sign~ ... "shit!!! Im not gonna give him anything afterall~!!!! DAMN!"
I was low on cash, but there was a last resort. FUJI FILM. Hell yeah... They print A4 all right.. but no instant printing and to have it developed in 30min? It'd cost 10BUCKS!
After all the running ups and downs, I managed to get it framed and wrapped. *whew...*
Sunday was Pearlyn's turn and this time I had to go church, meaning squeezing my precious sleeping time, illustrating a potrait of her and sending the image for printing in the few hours I had.
Yes, I had decided to get the same photo frame thingie for her too, but instead of just printing something I already had, I wanted to paint a profile of her.
I was rushing my ass of trying to paint her in a more realistic way. To make things worse, I havnt seen her since we graduated 4 years ago and I was gonna try a new rendering technique. ~_~
45min before church, I was forced to seal it as a complete piece, though I wasnt exactly satisfied with it. I had to send it for printing, go to church, return to collect it, frame it, then go straight for the party~!!
Thinking about the parties, it feels weird seeing the guys on Saturday and the girls on Sunday, so long after not seeing them all~ some of 'em say I havnt changed a bit and another friend said I prolly changed somehow, just dont know where yet.. hahaha~ I wonder if thats a good thing or a bad thing~
All that rushing felt so much like school~ makin' me miss it all over again. Crazy huh?
I'm just glad everything turned out fine~
Alrights, I better go crash in bed now.... . . . zzz.
*~Happy Birthday you peeps~*
