I started by leaving the house without my glasses. Which, y'know, is a big thing 'cause I'm kind of mostly blind without them. The kicker? I was about halfway to the bus-stop before I realized they weren't on my face. FAIL.

It must be because I was mostly in a daze all morning while getting ready, so the fact that everything was out of focus didn't occur to me simply because I hadn't been focusing on anything, anyway.

So, because of that I missed the bus, and was late for Digital Painting. Fortunately Michael starts the lesson like half an hour in, so I didn't miss anything. Though when he came around to inspect our environment paintings, he was all "Hey, you're using Painter! 8D" and then proceeded to tell me everything he told me last week when he had that exact same reaction. Clearly, he didn't remember at all, but considering I was so into painting at that point I kind of just "Uh-huh, mm-hmm"'d at him until he went away. I felt kind of bad because it was sort of rude, but hey, I didn't want to have to go through another 20 minute talk on how awesome Painter is and all it's cool features, ffff. *shrug*

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful, oh, except that I got a 6/10 on my animation >_<;;; Thankfully it's not worth much, but JEEEEEZ, really Mark Mayerson? REALLY? Apparently I did my track breakdown ALL WRONG. I thought the track that I was lip-synching to said "I'm melting, melting! Oh my world, my world!". The four or five times I listened to it, that was EXACTLY WHAT I HEARD. But apparently the track was "I'm melting, melting! Oh, what a world, what a world!"


How the fuck did I miss that!? UUUGH. So, since my "W"s were "M"s and the entire latter part of my animation was synched wrong, I lost marks and just uuuughhhh I'm kind of annoyed about it. *sigh* Like, I'm used to doing only average in animation, but this is the first time I've ever gotten a mark so low (that wasn't caused by late deductions), so it's kind of disheartening >_>

So yeah, school is a blast. We'll be getting our Muscle Test marks back tomorrow. I know I passed the written portion, but I'm terrified to see the big fat F on the drawing part.

Ughhh. This week sucks. Now back to Character design. PEACE OWT.

I have to laugh really big at the 6/10 you got on that specific assignment. Not at you but at Mark. Boris and I both got 6/10. For serious, and we spoke to mark about it and he was just being SUCH AN ASS. For whatever reason he said to Boris that you're not supposed to animated lip syncs with any of the frames on 1s, when YES INFACT YOU CAN AND ARE ENCOURAGED to if you feel it's necessary says DQ.

I cannot explain the rage I feel for that man. I pity his attitude towards life. Seriously, i didn't want to animate when he was.."TEACHING" us. And now it's what I want to do 8) So don't take mark personally, he really shouldn't be telling other people what to do. He really is a "teacher by mistake"..lololol. Yah know I'm not funny.

Other than that, sorry it's been kinda lousy, hope it picks up sooooon! <3

OMG REALLY? *dies*

Jeeeeeeez. Well, this year he made put in the rubric that you had to animate on twos for the lip sync. His reasoning was that if you were to animate a head around that mouth afterward, you couldn't do it 'cause the timing would be fux'd. But yeah, who was going to animate a head around that? Not me, noooo.

Well, I did it all on 2s like he asked, and (considering that I had misheard the track) it was all animated pretty well/synched nicely enough. I was just surprised that I lost so many marks for that, seeing as my animation overall wasn't so bad =_=;

Uuuugh. I'm just afraid for this monday when it'll be critiqued in class. I don't want to hear him LOL at me in front of the class for getting the dialogue wrong. So not looking forward to that >_<;;

But overall I haven't had too many problems with him as a teacher. He's not the most inspiring of instructors, but he is pretty good about being there if we need him for anything (being the Second Year advisor and all that) ~ *shrug* ~ Animation has just never been my strong point. I'm not bad at it or anything, like some of my stuff turns out pretty well. But it's just something that I don't really look forward to sitting down and doing, and if I've got that attitude about it already, I dunno how I'll make a living out of it >_<;;;


How're things with you my lovely? Haven't spoken to you in agesss <333
