I thought I'd give a quick update here while I have the chance. TGIF! My computer will be back in (hopefully) around 5 days!
I meant to put a little "IT'S OCTOBER!" notice here yesterday but I guess it slipped my mind- plus, I spent way too much time yesterday researching Asoka and was hard-pressed to search for the rare evidence that would damn the long-dead emperor to a verdict of good or bad ruler?
(Final decision? You're a good world/religious leader, good guy, but you were a bad ruler for India
So, anyway, It's October!
for those who didn't know. Plus, my birthday is in EXACTLY one week. It's so fast, isn't it? I don't quite believe it. It's hurtling towards me! I think this's the first time I actually want to stop time before my birthday. I need to adjust to not
being kind of the first pimply years of teenagerdom.
I was suggesting heavily to my mother that I would like to be given a rather huge hefty budget to plow through Amazon with, because I love the idea of opening the door on my birthday to find a little FedExed parcel of pretty things like shoes and books. (*points at wishlist* Maybe I could even use this opportunity to get To Catch a Pirate
Today I actually finished most of my homework- I only have to read and annotate Book 10 of The Odyssey
, and I'm done. Most of my motivation was the fact that maybe, just maybe, if I finish most of my homework by today, mum will bring me on a super long odyssey to the Great Land of Platinum tomorrow! Fingers crossed.
Just watched parts of Mrs Doubtfire
on TV while doing my Spanish assignment on the 2003 animation El Cid
, and was struck by how I'd never noticed the outfits before. It must've been a new blu-ray version on TV or something because the colours were sharper and more vivid, kind of like icons after they've been edited using those processes I can never seem to get my Photoshop to like. Everything was bluer, whiter. After tons of searching I managed to find the picture above, which was perfect, since the pool scene was the one I really liked (and paid attention to). It's hard to put my finger on the exact style, but I'd say it was casual summery layers
mixed in. I'd say effortless but I know from experience that looking effortless is FAR from actually BEING effortless. Most of the time effortless takes, well, loads of effort. If I'm making sense.
So since I don't have Photoshop on Sway-chick's computer (unfortunately)- I used Powerpoint. Not done yet because Auntie Oi came to pick me up. She and Khun Sue are playing with the very noisy JT now but I'm just going to kiss him for a bit and then when he goes to sleep Auntie Oi and I can tiptoe off for dinner back home. I feel so rude, trespassing on everyone's hospitality so I can get my H/W and general Internet stalking done!
Anyway, so this was not exactly a quick update but y'know I've always been bad at those... Till next time, y'all.
