So last week, I started the International Foundation in Art and Design (IFAD) at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.
I kind of had this idea of just rambling on about it so one day I can bore my kids with it. ..But then I never got around to it. So I’ma just compress the first week in here.
The very first day, I was late because I got the TIME CONFUSED WHERE IT’S GMT+0.
I thought the daylight savings thing would have kicked in .. but yeah. I actually thought I was nearly an hour early, when in reality I was about 10 minutes late.
The first couple of weeks are called Orientation/Disorientation. HOW COOL IS THAT? Yes, basically I’m just spazzing all the time in my head, so my eyes are just super wide all the time. I probably look like a caffeine junkie, which is actually my housemate/classmate/so far closest friend Sy. She’s literally chanting coooffeeeee all the time. Not figuratively, literally.
That’s her on the right, and Sally on the left. We got invited to an international students’ dinner held by the Baptist Church next to the university. Food was good. People were nice. House was amazing. Dog was big.
The first thing I made in class was one of those egg-holders that are .. break-proof.. supposedly. I didn’t really have a design, and it almost worked.
..Ugh I’m tired now, continue later.
Yesterday was my first day of art school, and here’s what I’ve done so far.
It’s like, the most amazing time of my life, srsly ;__;
I’ve turned 20 today.
Not available for reorder.
Painting T shirts is something I’ve been doing for money off-and-on for four years now, and it’s recently started to really take off. Of all the T shirts I’ve painted since I started (well over 50) this has been my favourite.
It has all the important elements of Donnie Darko wrapped into one image, in a flat-colour street art-style design. This, however, is not my own design, and I’d like to credit the original designer, but unfortunately was not able to find him/her even using the Google image search. So if anyone knows who it is, please let me know.
in America, black people are being gunned down simply for being alive, gay people can’t get married/can’t get jobs, politicians say women are asking for rape, trans people are being murdered every day, Middle Easterns are suspected to be terrorists, white men are defended for shooting up schools, teenage boys are building bombs to murder family and schoolmates and yet people still have the audacity to say this is the land of the free
One of my friends alerted me about an instagram page called “fatnotfine” - they are body shaming fat women and trying to justify their bullying by saying they’re concerned about peoples “health.” It’s absolute bullshit tbh, and very toxic. Fat girls need to be protected from creeps like this who…
i’m not on instagram but you all should definitely report this. too tired to go on a rage right now, but as a person who is both fat and totes fine, i say the page should be shut down
I think my selfie problem is getting out of hand..
